Seasons change, life changes , positions change sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. But I pray that I would be able to have joy in Christ no matter what my circumstances are.

Grateful for the gift of Life... thankful to be able to stay at home and raise my sweet boys and enjoy all the adventures that come with having boys. But more than anything thankful for @dmitriyspatarel , who is like the anchor in our family and keeps us steady and rooted in Gods word when life gets out of hand and crazy. #spatarelclan

Best part about our trip to Colorado is that we got to meet some amazing people. #spatarelclan

This book 😭
Probably the most impactful book, I have read this year. It talks about what it really means to portray the gospel through hospitality. One big take away was that our homes are not our own, they’re a gift, and are tools that we ought to use to bless those around us. Christian hospitality isn’t southern hospitality, its more of a sacrificial kind of hospitality. “The biblical call to show hospitality is one of the most overlooked or misunderstood commands in Scripture. We either ignore it or mistake it for what our culture calls ‘entertaining.’ Rosaria Butterfield gives us a vision of hospitality that pulses with the beating heart of the gospel itself. We know a God who sought us out, took us in, made us family, and seated us at his table. It’s a vision that is bracing and attractive. It daunts us, but it shouldn’t. I wonder how different our homes, churches, and culture would look if we took it to heart.”
It’s a challenging and encouraging read. I highly recommend it.
Happy sweet 16th to this sugar right here @karolinakalabishka . How is it that you’re 16 already ? 😭 I grew up babysitting you, and having sleepovers almost every weekend, and making so many wonderful memories. You always felt like a little sister to me, probably because you pretty much lived at my house 😜 I wouldn’t change anything... I’m so thankful for you sugar, I love you, always will, no matter what ♥️
The evidence of Gods Grace in my life, is this man right here. I’m so thankful that he has been very solid & strong in our life, especially when I wasn’t. Thankful for his unchanging love for me. He is hands down the best parent, he is patient and self controlled and loving to the boys. I’m so thankful to do life by his side.... ♥️ #spatarelclan
