    Oh how this has blessed me! Time for some reflection of how I am spending these precious few years with my Zs. Thank you!

    Sooooo good, so rich, Emily, especially this:
    “Some things don’t make sense until you’re holding them. Babies. Ideas. Life-callings.”
    May we all learn to lean into the callings before us. Amen.

      Hey Jody! Yes! Comments are open! I’m past the season where I needed them to be off. There was a stretch that I found myself really hanging on words of affirmation, so I just took that temptation away. I am more at peace with myself these days, and appreciate the comments but don’t need them. I really appreciate your encouragement!

  • Delightful, inspiring reading, Emily. 1. ‘Love the summary of your summer: “We did a lot of nothing that was delightfully everything.” Much to be said for summers free of schedules! 2. Also appreciate your wisdom to relax into the reality that many things we want to control are ultimately up to God. Truth that needs reaffirmation from time to time! 3. Am very impressed your boys are learning to sew. Think of their blessed wives to have husbands who can mend, hem, or sew on a button! 4. Your four ways to be faithful to God in this season of your life demonstrate wisdom–well beyond your years. God bless you, Emily, as you live out that wisdom with your precious children.
