Have you all met Aura? Her blog is lovely. Just lovely. Head on over, and I am positve you will be inspired. Her pictures are incredible, and her take on life is just refreshing. Oh, and she just had a beautiful baby girl named Elodie. So precious.

I’ve been wanting to share this story I read on her blog a while back. But I feel like first I should preface it by letting you know my thoughts on how God is behind all of this…

When I really sit back and think about it, I really cannot believe how blessed I am to have a husband whose number one goal in life is to serve the Lord. You see, we talk about life a lot. We talk about what’s important to us, the things we want to do with our time, with our money. And I am thrilled/estatic/overjoyed that we are on the exact same page. There is nothing more important to us than serving the Lord, no matter what that means.

So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:31

Did you get that? Our Father knows that we need these things. We’re commanded to seek first the Kingdom. When we do that, everything else will fall into place.

There is so much more that is stirring through my mind, but I don’t feel that I can articulate all of it at this moment. So I will just leave you with the much anticipated story…. (if it's too small, hopefully you can click on it and make it bigger)
