Here in the Dear family’s home,
there is a sign above my kitchen sink that reads,
I found it at a garage sale one day, and thought,
“THAT is our life!”
Here’s why – we have FOUR kids!
Now, I know there are plenty of families out there with more,
but man- to us… this is a bunch of kids!
And that, my friends, is why
“We may not have it all together”!
My house is often messy. We sometimes get behind in school. We are usually the late ones to every event.
We forget people’s birthdays. We do not have it all together. BUT!! Here comes the good part…
“Together we have it all!”
I am so blessed.
I am a child of God.
He rescued me. He loves me deeply. Jesus Christ is the best thing in my life. Always. And He came to do something amazing… give me abundant life… starting in the instant I gave my life to His control.
And ooo lala has He done that!
He gave me an incredible husband – my best buddy, Tony. ♥
He gave me my beautiful children. ♥
He has allowed me to stay at home with my kids full time.
God led me into homeschooling my kids, which has been a great decision for our family.
He allows me to serve Him in ministry to kids.
And the Spirit continues to show me things about Himself that carries me into a deeper intimacy with Him than I could have imagined.
We have adventures. We play board games. We eat good food. We learn and grow together. We talk about real stuff. We go on rad vacations. We have dance parties in the kitchen. We snuggle. We have a blast.
