in deep thought . .

Today I came across a bible verse, that so simple in it’s meaning, actually says A LOT!

God is able to do immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine. Ephesians 3:20

Well, it’s meaning is so simple and straight forward, however it had me in deep thought about my family. It is so true! God always has a plan for you and is able to do more than you could ever imagine. I mean, 4 years ago who would have thought that Chris and I would now be married (happily, I might add!) and also have another sweet baby together?! If you were to ask me back then, I would have said, “NO WAY!” (and maybe in not such nice of words! Ha!) But God knew… he always knew what was in store for our family and for the two of us! Thanks be to Him!

I feel truly blessed that God led Chris and I back to each other and has shown us a life full of love and happiness. When i look back now, it all seems as if it was someone else's bad dream! I am blessed with the most amazing husband and family-in-law that i could have ever asked for. I am so lucky!

Lately, we’ve been so busy in our “everyday” that I don’t think we’ve stopped to pay attention to the small things. So much is going on in our lives and I couldn’t be more thankful. God has truly given us more than we could have ever asked for!

Daddy Update – Chris has started a new job.. HORRAY!! He now works for Allied Crawford Steel in West Memphis. He is with their Inside Sales Dept. NO late nights.. NO weekends.. we have Daddy HOME! The kids and I couldn’t be more excited! :)He’s also going back to school in the fall! LK is really excited that she and Daddy get to do their homework together! Ha!

Lilly Kate Update – Well, Preschool is OVER! Can you believe it?! I have a Kindergartener! Yep… Kindergarten! ……. I suddenly feel as though I should be 40 and drive a minivan! (WOAH.. bad thought!) She’s slowly but surely becoming a Big Girl.. my baby no longer! :(

Ethan Update – E will be 2 on June 11! YIKES! Terrible twos are awaiting me.. I just know it! He is a constant handful and if we can make a whole day without a “boo boo” then it’s a major success!

Now on to me..

I have been super busy lately. It just seems like it’s one thing after another. With Chris’ new job, I am now officially on Mommy duty 24/7! I wake up, take the kids to school, work a few hours, pick them up… and that’s just the first half of our day! Whew! We are always running around, doing something! (I am envisioning a minivan again… scary!) I’ve also recently started designing and selling stationary and paper products through ETSY. It has really taken off A LOT faster than I was anticipating. I am up to my elbows in note cards, gift tags, address labels and custom invitations! I am absolutely loving what I am doing! (and the extra money!)

As a family we are really excited for the summer ahead of us! This will be our first summer in our new house, and we’re enjoying being in the garden and playing in the backyard! I have a whole list of “To-Dos” for the house for the summer! Lilly Kate has her dance recital tomorrow and we’re gearing up for Ethan’s birthday party!! (I like to do them up Big Time!) Chris and I are also headed to Atlanta next weekend for my best friend, Jennifer’s, engagement party!! It’s been so long since I’ve seen her and I am beyond excited!

Life is good and we couldn’t be happier! It’s true. I think I can speak for all 4 of us when I say that everything is fabulous right now! We’re in a happy place and really enjoying it all! :)
Thank you to everyone who makes our little world go round! You know who you are, and you know I couldn’t live without you (or at least live sanely!) Love you all!

And.. an update not about my family..
One of my dearest friends, Haley, and her husband are expecting Baby #2 on January 1st! We are more excited for you than words could say! We are praying for a smooth pregnancy and a happy healthy baby! (BOY!) :)

Congrats Geabhart Family! We love you!

Remember..

God is able to do immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine. Ephesians 3:20
