I started the series so that their stories and testimonies could encourage you. Turns out, they wrecked me. Although I already knew what they were going to share, the Lord still used it to completely break me. SO much sin in my life was revealed and conviction set in. The past 9 days were just constant conviction and repentance on my end. And I'm so thankful. It wasn't pleasant realizing some very real areas of sin and pride in my life. I didn't want to repent or recognize they were there, but the Lord is gracious and patient, and He lovingly lead me to repentance. So thankful for His love. I want to be more like Jesus, I just sometimes don't want to have to go through the repentance it takes to get there, but I know it's needed and I'm always thankful in the end.
I've got so many posts I need catching up on... like C's 10 month update. It came and went and now I'm all like "holy mess, he's almost 11 months!!!!!" sad face.
Today, I'm buried deep in adoption paper work and adoption errands. This is the part of the adoption process that is oh so very long and boring. Thankfully, we have our first round of Home Study Interviews tomorrow. So ready to feel like the ball is really rolling.
I'll leave you with a few pics of my new wall. It took me about four days to complete. I'm seriously in love with it. You can find the tutorial here. Yes, I 100% copied this idea. And I'm 100% okay with that. I came super close to doing it shades of white and gold, but last minute decided to stick with color plan of the tutorial. I wanted something bright and fun down my back hall way (it leads to the laundry room, the stairs, and the garage) I'm hoping the fun wall will inspire me to do more laundry... doubtful. The colors are more true in the tutorial photos, my crappy lighting doesn't do it justice. So much more rad in person. Total the project cost me 25 bucks. whoop!
Hoping you all have a lovely, Monday!
