in the middle of my little mess i forget how big i’m blessed.

This song is in my head today as I wait to hear from Chris if our credit score is high enough to start looking for houses. We’re not quite ready I don’t think, but I know house hunting can take a long time (especially with our budget) so it would be awesome to start looking. And I’ll be fine if we get a “it’s not quite there yet” advice from the mortgage guy. Because I’m content with where we are. And frankly, I like saving money. So if we need to stay put a few more months, to me, it just means there will be more money in our account for repairs or a new washer/dryer or whatever.

Anyway. This song is awesome I think because of this line, “In the middle of my little mess, I forget how big I’m blessed.”


I don’t go to a Baptist church but if I did I’d be in my pew yelling “PREACH” all day long. I love that. And it’s what I want to say when I hear a line like that.


I AM blessed. Big time. Even in the chaos and uncertainty we’re living in right now.

Because let’s see. Since Christmas…

1. The kids all had the stomach flu three times and C and I had it once

2. We moved from my in-laws to my parents

3. We’ve seen a pulmanologist, alergist and homeopath for Parker

4. We found out Parker had lots of food allergies/sensitivities and we changed the way our family eats in a MAJOR way

5. Gray had a CT scan on his sinuses and had over 50 days of antibiotics (and is also on a ton of probiotics right now!)

6. Chris had his car stolen

7. We went car shopping

8. C’s car was found

9. We’ve brought a new person into Fresh Art (announcement coming soon!)

10. The kids had three ear infections and two cases of pneumonia during a crazy ice storm/snow storm

And I’m sure I’m forgetting something.

Having a car stolen, moving AGAIN, super sickness and major diet changes is a lot for two months. A LOT.

But in the midst of it all we are continually blessed.

Which is awesome.

Because God is so so awesome.

Happy Tuesday!

  2. I love that this song will be stuck in my head now that I read your blog. I love the part of “this is the stuff you use”. I OFTEN forget to know God is using everything in my life (for my good) and get frustrated with the little things. thanks so much for sharing this!

  3. I wish your eternal optimism were genetic and I had been given some too.

    That is a lot to go through in two months and you are AMAZING that you are still able to see how blessed you are.
