Thinking about // Peacefulness. Joy that radiates from my daughters. Joy that cannot be quenched. My God, do I want that joy in my life. That I never lose it! I want to radiate the sweet heavenly grace that they do for me and those around us. I want to feel the closeness and realness of a God who fills me with that joy relentlessly. I want to open my heart to that pure and real and unending joy.

Reading // I went to Flagstaff this weekend and wanted to read some fluff. I searched high and low in my house to find some fluffy reading to take on our trip. Instead, I found this. The complete opposite of fluff. Have you ever read it? Is it hard for you to read as well? Or am I just too dense??

Listening to // My hilarious grandparents watching crazy shows on their TV. The girls and I came up to Flagstaff without Michael and Lucia to get some r&r. It was amazing to be with my two older girls and cuddle with them and love on them and have special time with them. I find that I usually ask them to Wait or Hang on while I take care of Lucia, etc. But this time? It was just time for them. They’re patient and they’re loving when I am taking care of Lucia throughout the days, but I loved this weekend with them. Bliss.

Thankful for // My family that cherishes me, that make me feel special and priceless — for grandparents that love unconditionally. I underestimate how much my heart needs this! And them! What a joy they are. I feel refreshed and renewed. I have a new sense of gratefulness, of happiness, of laughter. Goodness. I’m like a kid in a candy store, except it’s my soul surrounded by love. My soul is just surrounded by such love.

    • Thank you, Lisa! It was really really wonderful and much needed. You’re the sweetest :)

  2. Jenna! I love that you are having some quality time with the “olders” I totally get it. I feel I am always putting G off because of all the immediate “right now” needs of a baby. So I am very happy you are able to fill up the tanks of quality time needs in your sweet older girls!! How fun!

  5. This is my first time writing a Currently post, and I enjoyed it! Thanks for hosting this link up. I enjoyed reading several of the other posts that had been linked up. I just wish I was able to comment on all of them. For some reason I can’t ever get my comments to post on blogger.
