Those Moments

You know those moments when you stop to ponder about life?  Well, that’s what I’ve been doing lately!

You know those moments when you realize that life is so grand, and there’s so much more to live for than what you initially expected?  Well, that’s what God has been reminding me lately!

You know those moments when for some reason your heart is burdened, but you know that His mercies are new every morning?

Well, that’s what He has shown me today 🙂

And you know those moments when you’re able to wake up each morning and be thankful for life, and wake up to this face?

Okay, I’m sure you don’t Daniel.  But well…this is what I’ve been doing every morning!

You know those moments when the little things in life truly DO matter?  Like when you cook for your loved ones and show them affection through it?

Well, this is Lil Daniel’s baby pasta casserole I’ve made. 🙂

You know those moments when you just NEED and YEARN for that girlfriend and sisterly love to keep each other accountable?

Well, that’s what I did today with my dear lovely Eunice.

You know those moments when you just appreciate your students just for what they are, whether they cry or not?

Well, I met up with sweet lil Cameron today.  (And that masterpiece is when he doesn’t even put the effort!)

And…you know those moments when you can stop in the middle of a parking lot and thank God for the amazing work of art He’s made for you and me to see, whether rain or shine?

Well, that’s what I’ve witnessed this afternoon! 🙂

And then, you know those moments when you just thank Him not only for what He’s done

but who He is?

Well…I pray that this day will be filled with joy and peace not only for me, but all of you guys too!  I’m thankful for y’all, and have a beautious rest of the day!!  😀

Love,

Ellie <33
