Destiny

2 Mar

Dont ask me why, but ever since I was a little girl I knew, deep down, that I would be a Pastor’s wife one day. I dont know if this was because I was around one- my Grandma- so much, or just because something inside of me knew that was my destiny… or calling. I also remember thinking the whole time while George and I were dating that he would be a Pastor. Now, I am not saying that I would, or could, not be happy not being a Pastors wife, or not having a husband as a Pastor, but I just believed these things early on. And I know that being a Pastor, or Pastor’s wife, may not be of importance to some, but to me, it is! I am tearing up writing this because as I sit here, I now am, I am a Pastor’s wife. My husband is a Pastor. WOW!!

What a big responsibility we have now. Not that we didnt before…. but now… it’s intensified!

I am greatful for where God has planted us for this season and cannot wait to see what He has in store for us!!

Are You Content?

20 Dec

I have been thinking a lot lately about a lot of stuff… that probibly explains why I cannot sleep these days!! Today though, I boiled it down to one things (or more or less one thing)… instead of a jumble of clutter in my brain that just keeps thinking and thinking and thinking. It is along the lines of Content. Am I content in what I am doing? Am I content in what I have been blessed with? Am I content in my life?

So, now instead of praying for EVERYTHING that seems to make me discontent, like finances, unruly children, being unsure about where our ministry will lead us, feeling as if I dont live up to the “dreams” I had in my head of being a SAHM (Stay at home mom), so on and so forth… I am going to just start praying that I will be content in my circumstance! Be content about where God has placed us right here, right now. My prayer is that I will not focus on the future and try to figure out what God has planned for my family and I. Instead, I will pray that I will be content in this journey of life that God has me on and stop worrying so much about HOW and WHEN we are going to be doing what God has called us to do. I have exhausted myself trying to get to “the goal, prize, finish line”, whatever you want to call it, instead of trusting God that He knows what He is doing and enjoying my life, my family and my experiences.

Now…. If only I could FULLY set my mind in this state of “CONTENTMENT”!!!

Thankful For #6 through Infininity

30 Nov

Okay… I did not post daily like I planned with my “Thankful For’s”. Partly because I was way too excited for Thanksgiving and got caught up with cooking and baking. And partly because I would sit down to post and have so much but nothing at the same time… if that makes any sense. So, I am just going to give a list of things that come to my mind at this very moment that I am thankful for. This is in NO WAY everything that I am thankful for…. I could never begin to be done being thankful… But here goes….

#6: I am thankful that I had children young.

#7: I am thankful for great parents and siblings.

#8: I am thankful for struggles… Now, I am not thankful for these while I am in the middle of them, but having gone through plenty of struggles… afterwards, the knowledge I gain from these struggles, makes me thankful.

#9: I am thankful for my health and my families health.

#10: I am thankful for great friends… although I myself, am not the best friend a person can have… I still am very thankful for those friends that endure me! 🙂

10 Thankful For’s seems like a good place to end… still NOWHERE close to everything that I am thankful for!!

Thankful For #4

I am thankful for being able to be a Stay-at-home-mom!

I have been able to be a stay at home for about 4 months now and it is wonderful! Being a SAHM has always been a dream of mine since Peyton was born but my husband and I did not know how we would be able to make it happen. After praying about it… we took the plunge… and have been making it ever sense… it is purely a God thing!

With me being a SAHM I not only get to be here every minute of the day for my children and family, but I also have more time to devote to my devotion times and such. I have witnessed not only more time to spend with God, but also my growth in my faith by being able to do so. I am truly blessed to be able to serve my family and God by being a SAHM!

Thankful For #3

I am thankful for my two beautiful children!

 

I know that my last 3 “Thankful For”‘s have been what most people are thankful for… but I cannot be more thankful for these things! My children are a beautiful and wonderful blessing to me. I am very blessed to be able to stay at home with them and rear them the way that George and I would see fit. Peyton and Julianna amaze me daily. They keep me laughing and smiling (and sometimes screaming!) daily. I can be having a horrible day but then just look down at them and be instantly cheered up. And although they both look like there father, they are still the greatest creation that God has blessed me with.

Thankful For #2

I am thankful for a wonderful husband!

 

On my second day of Thanks, I am thankful for a wonderful, supportive and hardworking husband. George Tallmage is a great husband, father and leader! He has allowed me to be able to stay at home with our children while he provides for us while being a full-time employee doing school maintenance and going through his ministerial process to become an ordained minister. I could not ask for a better husband or father to my chidren!!

Thankful For #1

18 Nov

Thanksgiving is just one week away and to celebrate this wonderful holiday I am going to be giving thanks for the next week. I will blog a new “Thankful For” post each day until Thanksgiving. This, and every season, is the season to give Thanks so lets all begin now! And feel free to comment on my posts to let me know what you are thankful for as well!

Thankful for #1

 

I am Thankful for being saved and being a child of God.

If it was not for God I would not be able to do what I do, be where I am, or think what I think. Because of My Father sending his only Son to die on the cross for my sins, I am able to be who I am today! None of us are worthy of what we have been blessed with. I thank God daily for my wonderful family, great freinds, a place to live and so on and so forth. I could never thank God enough for all of his glory and provisions!
