No matter where you’re reading this from in the world, I can guarantee April didn’t quite go to plan. We’re still in the midst of the global pandemic Covid-19 and we’re all Sheltering-In-Place AKA staying home. All the time. For weeks on end. I’m also very pregnant (37 weeks this week!) so that is a factor as well. Here are the things I used most, found most helpful and enjoyable and was most grateful for this past month excluding this beautiful, fancy Dalgona coffee because I just couldn’t get on board. I tried my best!
August was wonderful and beautiful and heartbreaking and confusing. Last week, my niece was born stillborn at 37 weeks gestation. Eden Jane’s story is not mine to tell- that belongs to her mommy and daddy. I will say this-She was healthy and strong until one day her heart just stopped beating and we’ve been grieving and mourning since. She is so loved and we look forward to the day when we’re together again. Her life has spurred a deep desire in me to cling to the Lord in ways I haven’t before and I’m thankful for the ways He draws us near. The theme of August was traveling and enjoying family so here’s what I loved wearing, watching, listening to, eating and doing this month.
March was lovely. Yes, we technically lost our jobs. Yes, we had to move home earlier than anticipated. Yes, Lema had a never ending ear infection. But man, God was so faithful to us. I’m writing this with my hair blowing in the wind, the sun warming my skin and birds chirping overhead. What more could I ask for? Here are the things I read, watched, ate, wore and listened to this past month.
