Angel Tea Party- Birthday

It's super fun being a mom! I never thought this is what my life would be like..... but Oh My!- I'm so thankful it is........ I'm so glad that God's plan for our lives are much better than our own! Aren't you?!?!?  I'm so thankful that I am learning to let go of all the things that don't really matter. (emphasis on learning)  I'm thankful that the Lord is helping me embrace motherhood with a joy and a passion. I'm thankful that we can go to Him and ask for wisdom and guidance.

Nothing brings me greater joy than being a wife and mom. I love the work and effort it requires. I love taking my job seriously. (while having some fun!)

I was reading in Proverbs this week about laziness and doing your work diligently.

Proverbs 19:15 
Laziness casts one into a deep sleep, And an idle person will suffer hunger.

I do not take my "homemaking" lightly. I want to serve and work for my family with a cheerful and deliberate heart.

Proverbs 13:4
The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; But the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.

I choose to not be lazy in my home. I choose to take it serious and put great effort into my husband and kids. I choose to be intentional and deliberate with my family. I choose to teach my kids the Word- I choose to make them feel special and put intentional effort into pouring into their lives.

Colossians 3:17 and 3:23
And whatever you do in the word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him

And whatever you do , do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men

Whether it's planning tea parties, birthday parties, menus, cleaning, extra activities, family outings, serving opportunities, or just little surprises. I thank the Lord for my opportunity and I want to do it all to glorify Him.

With all that being said............

We were blessed to celebrate our first born's 3 year old birthday this month.  We had an Angel Tea Party. 

We read angel books, made angel crafts, and talked about Angels.
The girls dressed up as sweet angels for the party. 

What a sweet memory! 

What a blessing it is to put effort into my family and pour love and encouragement into their lives!
