Lately, I’ve been eating too many Fun Size Almond Joy candy bars.  Stupid Halloween.

Lately, I’ve been trusting God that He has a plan for me and I just need to enjoy the ride.

Lately, I’ve been slowing down and remembering one word with my children:  grace.  Not always.  But more than I have in the past.

Lately, I’ve been so thankful for a core group of about eight heart sisters that walk with me through the twists and turns on this side of heaven.

Lately, I’ve found that I can start to overlook this because he so often says “Mama, you booful” with drool rolling down his chin while he leans over and plants a sloppy kiss on my cheek.  Now THOSE are germs I’ll keep.

Lately, I’ve been really content.  For truly the first time in my life.

Lately, I’ve been realizing that I function on far too-little sleep and I need more. 

Lately, I’ve been realizing that trying to go to bed earlier when you’re a night owl is tough stuff.

Lately, I’ve met so many more sisters in the online world and they are beautiful people with amazing ministries and they humble me.

Lately, I’ve started to think about exercising. (See above)

Lately, I’ve been wishing my father was alive to roll around on the floor with my boys and be wrapped around the finger of my daughter.

Lately, I’ve been thinking that I really like the “hunting” beard my husband has been sporting…

This is the kind of stuff we do for fun around here.  It doesn’t take much to amuse us.

Lately, I’ve realized that though I miss my hubs every time he leaves, I don’t mind being a deer widow as much because it’s so good for him.

Lately, he’s been teaching our kids about the “Goat Boy” from the good ‘ol days of  Saturday Night Live and will bust out with a “baaaaaa” mid-word to the delight of three little gigglers.

Lately, I’ve been praying about what God wants me to do with this space here.

Lately, I’ve been praying for Him to reveal the next step of my ministry.

Lately, I have so enjoyed a little girl who is loving her horseback riding lessons and is excited to read Misty of Chincoteague with her nerd of a mom every night.   Snort.  It’s one of my very favorite books from childhood.

Lately, I’ve just found myself so very grateful.  And yes, I know everyone  says this at this time of the year but it’s true.   Abundantly blessed by His unfailing grace and love.

I’m joining in with precious Christy from Critty Joy for “As of Late”…
