wanna know about the lady behind the Peanut Gallery?

Welcome to the Peanut Gallery. This is a blog about:

My life.
My spawn.
My better half.
My Loving God.
My random thoughts. And I do mean random.
My strange sense of humor. If you can call it that.
My addiction to photography.
My addiction to Photoshop.
My desire to “simplify”.
My “crafty spurts”.
My not so crafty spurts.
My chickens.
My lack of culinary skills
My home-schooling journey.
My heart for adoption.
My Savior, Jesus.

I’m just a mom and a wife who is learning on a daily basis, what it means to savor each moment. I have a small herd of children and life can be a tad chaotic. I will gladly admit that I am often on the precipice of exhaustion and frustration. I even don the “I’m not having any fun” attitude on many occasions. Yet, it is my deepest longing to enjoy this phase of motherhood. To learn to live simply. To not get caught up in all of the “good things“ at the expense of the “BEST THING“. Our days are made up of moments. Sweet Moments. I want to drink them in and enjoy each one. I realize that each one of my children is a PRICELESS TREASURE. A gift from the God who is able to give above and beyond what we could even imagine or dream. When I think back on the years of infertility, high risk pregnancies, and our adoption, I truly believe that God had a bigger and more amazing plan than we could have ever hoped for. It is my desire to honor and glorify Him in this life that I‘ve been blessed with. More of Him, less of me. That is my heart.

I’m loving this verse at the moment.

Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)

"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
