There's just something...

There's just something about being buried in a pile of leaves...


There's just something about jumping up to reach the tree that seems to tower over you, ...


There's just something about shuffling your feet through crackling leaves...

There's just something God is trying to teach me right now...patience, perseverance, and love. There's just something my children are trying to teach me right now...kindness, compassion, humility...

The fact that I will make mistakes, but Jesus makes it all better when I just come to Him and lay it down...

So will I stop trying to control everything, let go and just learn?

Yes...yes I will.

What's God teaching you right now? Are you listening? Are you learning?

I love this. Sometimes God is trying to teach us to just be. Be in His presence. Be with Him. Be patient.

Precious pictures, Mandy - especially that last one. This is such great encouragement. Sometimes God just wants us to be still and be in the moment. Look at the smiles on your kid's faces? What could you possibly be doing that is better than experiencing that joy? :)

Beautiful post Mandy Love this... "The fact that I will make mistakes, but Jesus makes it all better when I just come to Him and lay it down" so very true and the fact that He never tires of doing just that. So glad the He is glorified by my mistakes and that I'm also sanctified by them. Only God :)

Wonderful photos Mandy, and an excellent point as well. When we're finally able to let go, and let God, everything just seems to make so much more sense... :-)

Have a Blessed Day!
