Beauty in the Busy

The months of February & March have been busy. Our little family has found itself always on the go. Our days filled with family, friends, and lots ministry.
At night we fall into bed, hug the other, share highlights from our days, talk over the hard parts, then doze off ready for the next day. 
We are so thankful to be tired at the end of the day.
Thankful that we are surrounded with life that is ever changing.
Hard. Challenging. Beautiful. Full of grace and Jesus. 

One thing that I've learned is that we have the choice if what we are busy with is going to matter, mean something in the long run. Or if we are going to be busy just for the sake of being busy. Lets make our busy beautiful, lets make it count.

The last month there have been lots of birthdays, weddings, laughs, tears, cheering students on in the middle of their life's battles, less & less sleep, praying, celebrating, traveling, baby toting, conferences, community, building friendships, retreats, and growing in the Lord. 
Last week we took our students on a spring break trip that was simply incredible. The entire week we intentionally provided ample opportunity for students to spend time with the Lord. Opportunities for them to seek after God instead of us continually providing them with the word & worship all week. It was such a beautiful time with our students. To watch them grow in Christ. It was extra special because Johnny and I got married in the beautiful chapel there 5 years ago. 

The month of March is still going strong with so many things going on. We have fine arts this weekend and then I'm going to Hope Spoken next weekend! I'm so ready to join 250 other women just like myself ready to grow in the Lord & build community. Woohoo!
