I love this season! The season is about LOVE. HIS love being the most important. HIS love propels me to love more. Love HIM more, love those surrounding me, love the people I have left behind, love myself. Love.



Daddy's are my favorite overall thing of the day! I am very blessed with many great dad's through out my life~ my grandfather, my dad, my daughter's daddy, and of course Our FATHER!

He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers...

My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline
and do not resent his rebuke,
because the Lord disciplines those he loves,
as a father the son he delights in.

and do not despise your mother when she is old.

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.

Side Note

Okay... daily seemed ambitious but not impossible...

I forgot that I have a 2 year old, a busy hubs, my compulsion to clean, and a family to cook for...

So maybe lets say 10 things, 5 days a week...

Wish me luck!
