My name is Rebekah and I'm surviving my mid-twenties as a wife, mommy, sister, daughter, friend, blogger and absolute multi-tasker. I tend to keep my plate constantly full and then complain about being busy. I long for get-away weekends and days on the town and then miss my house and my babies so much I could just cry. I live in the moment, am hopelessly type-B and itch for days where taking a shower isn't my only accomplishment. I am so thankful I get to spend these precious "flying years" with my babies, I have always dreamed of being a mom! I truly love my days at home. And my nights at home. And the rest of my time at home ... I think there's a LOT more "home" time than I expected!
God has taught me SO much about His love for me through having children and how to be better for His glory. I feel like He has done such a number on my heart and just transformed who I was. I'm just anxiously awaiting any more "home improvements" He has in mind ... I'm such a fixer-upper project!
Social networking like blogging and Facebook are such an outlet for me and almost therapeutic as they remind me there are other mommas out there just like me- that other people are going through the exact same crazy days and think it's hard too! This Spring we embarked on QUITE a new adventure: a cross-country move! Aaron took on a new exciting job in Northern Pennsylvania/ Southern NY and we are adjusting to life without our precious family and friends. While we miss home-sweet-home in Arkansas dearly, we are seeing good through following the Lord into an unknown territory. We cling to a verse he gave us in Isaiah 43:19, "See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." We have had to cling to Him and each other in a whole new way, which has been learning process all it's own. But, strangely enough, we're growing to like it (not Pennsylvania, just the lessons learned here!).
Thanks for reading!
