Beauty is in the Small Things

Life with 3 little kids is chaos.  On. The. Daily.

And, yet, it is so beautiful.  In one moment, I feel like I am pulling my hair out and the next, I am almost in tears thinking how fortunate I am.

I have wasted so much time stressing about how messy the house is, about money, about things to do and places to be.

You know what I haven’t spent nearly enough time on, just loving and being present with my children.

Now, that’s not to add to some serious mom-guilt.  It’s a priority check.

Yes, we need to pay the bills.

Yes, we need belly’s to be fed.

Yes, we need a safe, hygienic space to live 😏

But, mostly, we need peace, love and joy.

I, personally, have found myself on my knees (practically on my face) in despair, begging the Lord to save us, in a few ways.  And He has been answering one prayer after another.  Serious mountains being moved like they’re tiny hills.

God has shown me His faithfulness and what it has taught me is that God’s got us.

Wow, my anxiety has been at a minimum!  When I start to stress I look back at all of the blessings we have been given and all of the areas He has met us right when we’ve needed Him most.

You know, my children will only be small for a short period of time.  I am so grateful we chose homeschool because we have that much more time with them while they are under our roof.  But this time still goes by so fast.

Beauty is in the small things.  It’s in the small everyday moments and I want to enjoy this time with them to the fullest.  It’s actually easy to choose to not stress because I know God’s got us.

I challenge you to take a minute of rest today and focus on being truly present in whatever you are doing and whoever you are with.

What was one small, beautiful moment from your day?  I would love for you to share in the comments below.
