Grace in the Storm

After just about a week away, it feels so good to have this space up and running again, and with a fresh new look and name as well! Rachel of Oh Simple Thoughts did the design for me and she was absolutely a gem to work with and I couldn't be more pleased with the results! 
Today, I just wanted to pop in and say hello real quick. I have more fun posts planned for next week, but today, my brain is a little fried, my body a little worn down, and this girl is ready for the weekend. We've had a whirlwind couple of weeks in the Rasmussen house including a huge work project that consumed all of my time and energy and had me putting in long & hard hours at the office, guests in from out of town staying with us, late nights, and a pregnancy complication that had me going in for an MRI and feeling the weight of anxiety. I feel really drained by the constant activity, and mentally, physically and emotionally I am ready for a weekend to recharge.

The happy news though is that even though the past few weekends haven't been the easiest for us, God has shown up in our lives in huge ways. I've been reminded over and over again just how faithful He is, and how He really is the one who holds everything together. God cares so much about us, and our lives and He has really answered some big prayers of ours, but I've also been reminded how he cares about the smallest details of our lives as well, the things that feel less important or not as big. 

He is faithful friends, and if you find yourself feeling like you're in the weeds today, just trying to dig and claw and find your way out, keep pressing on and pressing into the Lord because He has not left you there alone. Give yourself a little grace to leave a few things unchecked on your to-do list, to give yourself permission to lay on your couch and do nothing for a full day, and to take care of yourself as you muddle through the storm that has your shoulders sagging and your head hanging. There is hope, there is a light that is just around the corner, even if you can't see it yet.
