Mother's Day

This is my 11th year celebrating Mother's Day.
{Ok, so I thought it was my 10th - but after I started counting, it's 11}
{Writing a blog post about my 11th year isn't quite as special as 10, but I'll go with it.}

My life is truly blessed.
A husband who loves me deeply.
And four little bundles of joy have made my life rich!

I love being a mom.
It is one of the greatest gifts God has given me.
I am so thankful He softened my heart to want to be a mom!
I can hardly believe there was ever a day I didn't want to be one.
God of Wonders!
God of Grace!
He always know exactly what we need.
And I am thankful He works with my stubbornness.

So, on this snowy Mother's Day in Castle Rock, Colorado ....
I want to take a walk down memory lane.

  1. Dear Steve and Lisa,
    Your family is so beautiful and you are clearly attentive, loving parents. I wanted to tell you I admire how you have stuck it out through the hard times and how you have chosen to be on the same team--not against each other. Love each other mightily, without holding back for what you could get out of the deal. I say this, only because I love you guys and know what the lack of selflessness can cost.
    I have made some pretty screwy decisions in my life. Some I regret. Some of the biggest, most frowned upon, I do not. Others, I look back and think, who the heck made THAT decision?!?! But, God is working on me, always. And He has kept His hands of love, protection and guidance on my kids. This, beyond all else, is what I am so profoundly thankful for.
    Hold onto each other and to your kids--they are you utmost and most worthy ministry.
    I love seeing their little faces on FB as they change and grow, and of course I enjoy seeing you both--where you've been, what your plans are, what God is doing in your lives.
    I just wanted to tell you I love you and miss you. It's been a long long time, and no chance to talk, to explain, to laugh, to understand.
    You are often in my prayers. I hope to see you sometime soon.
    In His Grip,
    Anne
