I Have Been Blessed

All about how God has blessed me. In my marriage, with my six children, through homeschooling, and our faith with recipes, large family living, and updates on our life.

Knit together

I have been teaching myself  to knit. I am following a simple pattern and am happy with the results so far. But it got me thinking. Knots are not generally something I view as positive. Knots in my jewelry, on ropes, strings, ties. Knots in my hair, or worse, Madelynne’s hair. But knitting takes something I see negatively and makes it pretty, makes it all work together.
And that actually got me thinking about my marriage. God has used lots of strings and lots of knots to ‘knit’ Austin and I together. Some of the colors God used I loved (Brendyn, Tyler, Madelynne, Adreya, Wyatt) but some of the colors He used, I didn’t like (trials, struggles, adversity) but God was still using even the bad things to bring us closer together.
I am so Blessed to have a husband I like and love. Blessed that I love him more today than yesterday. More this month than last month. More this year than last year. Every day we become more knit together and I couldn’t be happier.
Five special blessings to me today: Austin, tax refunds, fresh strawberries, my mom, menu planning
Hope you have a blessed day too!
