At Home in the Heartland
A slower life can be sweeter...

Our little family enjoys time together and we each also have things we enjoy to do independently.
Two weeks off at the end of the year always gives us a chance to recharge. The first week was spent celebrating Christmas with family and this week we have been quietly resting and hanging out at home.
When we start school next week, our school year is half over and we will be making plans for spring...

Last Saturday, I took some time to put away the Halloween decorations and bring out a few things for Thanksgiving.When I do this each season, I like to change the words on our piano too. It's a fun routine and I enjoy choosing new words to match my heart at the time. I have a lot of "Give thanks" and "Gratitude" going on right now, so I chose different words for this spot.
When we got to church on Sunday, "Grace Upon Grace" was the topic of our music and message for the service. This happens so often, when our devotions, our thoughts, and our prayers all come together beautifully as the spirit leads us.
So this month I remind myself over and over, it is by my faith and His grace that I continue to go about my day to days. Each time I feel myself getting overwhelmed or negative, I just say it to myself "by faith and by grace".
It is all any of us need.
