A Peek Into This Past Week (+ my objectives & Habit Tracker upgrade!)

Welcome to my weekly post sharing a peek into our previous week + providing you an upgrade on how I did on my objectives this previous week and my routines chart the recently.

Jesse and I commemorated our 20th wedding event anniversary — and commemorated by going out with 2 other couples to supper and axe-throwing.

So grateful for the present of relationships — and all the laughter and life we’ve shown the couples envisioned here.

Also, a throwback to twenty years earlier on our wedding event! (By the method, I published this on Instagram and individuals were extremely baffled about what the blue beverage was — those are drifting candle lights in blue water. Also, I used my mother’s gown, in case you were questioning that! And yes, Jesse appeared like he was 15!!)

Our kids went out image albums of when they were little to reveal Kierstyn.

And then we invested a long period of time all going through them together!

We couldn’t think just how much little Silas appears like Micah does now!

Kierstyn has actually been doing My Father’s World PreK and caring it. One of the huge motivations in this curriculum this year is to actually require time to analyze images and see information. She has actually been actually enjoying it!

Thursdays are Kierstyn’s swimming lesson days — which she likewise actually delights in!

Micah chose he wished to find out how to stand now and he amazed all of us by having the ability to hold a standing position like this for a couple of minutes!

It snowed one day recently briefly and Kierstyn and David were extremely thrilled about it!

We invest a great deal of time on the basketball sidelines today and I enjoy it! Plus, it’s a lot simpler with 3 youngsters now that we’ve had months of practice and Kierstyn is a little older!

Silas is using 2 various basketball groups today and I enjoy seeing him play his heart out!

Micah’s latest technique is to clap his hands. He wishes to reveal anybody and everybody that he can do it! 🙂

Our church has this substantial poster of Goliath up on the wall today — and our little David is amazed with it.

As I enjoyed him keep tottering over to the poster on Sunday (see 2nd slide), it was such a graph to me of the Biblical David & Goliath story.

God doesn’t require our strength, our endurance, our power, our perseverance, or our capability. All He requires is a desire for us to appear in obedience. To open our hands, to acknowledge our requirement prior to Him, and to march in faith.

If God picks you and you march in faith and state yes — regardless of how insufficient, inefficient, or ill-qualified you might feel — He can equip you to do fantastic and magnificent things, far beyond what you might ever dream or think of!

Here’s my upgrade on my Habits Chart from recently. My objective is to have 5 x’s in each line — I struck that in 7 lines this previous week, so still space for enhancement, however likewise great deals of space for event. And development over recently when I just struck 5 x’s in 5 lines!
