  1. What a blessing to receive so much encouragement. That’s why this writing community is the best and I love you are part of it.

    I imagine adding three more people to your house will squeeze you in ways you cannot even think about now. I’m believing it will be a huge blessing for all. My son and daughter-in-law have been living with me since October. They do not have kids but it makes a difference when you are used to being by yourself. Praying for you as you transition into this new normal. God’s presence will get you through.

    • It has been interesting to say the least, especially when it comes to meal planning. I am thankful for God’s grace and His strength. Thank you for visiting Mary!

  2. Barbie, your words are always worth reading, be they many or few. It’s heartening to hear how you have been encouraged by us. It’s an honour to be a part of your faith journey, sharing hallelujahs and hiccups! May God give you strength for the busy days ahead with your family, and some tiny pockets of rest and peace in which to recoup and breathe. I loved the video, enjoying a song that was new to me and has such uplifting words. Thank you for sharing it and for making this space such a welcoming place to be. Bless you, friend! xo

  3. Yes, Barbie, God still uses you even when you’re going through a dark valley. Your struggles make many feel less alone, including me. Those grandchildren can really bring sunshine to our hearts, can’t they? 🙂 Your graphic and the song really speak encouragement to my weary heart and body today. I have never heard of that song before, and I love it. Love and hugs to you!

  4. A house full could be a tremendous help to your family right now as long as everyone pulls their own weight. Barbie, boundaries…remember boundaries with love & grace. Just thinking of YOU.

  5. I appreciate how you embrace the hard seasons by looking for gifts, for the good in the midst of the hard. That is a joy-inducing spiritual discipline, to be sure.

    • Thanks so much Natalie. Some weeks I come kicking and screaming with my lists of blessings, but once I’ve got them down, I feel so much better. There is so much power in thanksgiving!

  6. Oh, my! You do have a full house! There will be challenging times, I’m sure, but enjoy the blessing of it while it lasts! You’re in my thoughts and prayers this week, friend!

  7. I love the song! I don’t think I’ve heard it before, so thank you for introducing it to us! I’ve shared it with a young lady who has lived a very difficult time for the majority of her life. I think she’ll like it, too.
    Congrats on the soon to be born baby! God bless you all as you make these changes in your lives together.
    “You’ve never failed me yet.” And He never will!!! Amen!

  8. I’m glad you’re getting such great time with your grandson in your home! Hope that continues to go well. Praying that Nathan’s delivery will be uncomplicated and healthy. Thanks for sharing the song…enjoying listening right now.

  9. Beautiful music….very encouraging…very uplifting…moving…inspiring! You certainly have a house full and are gonna be so blessed to have them all surrounding you. Congrats on the soon to be grandchild. New life….new hope! Blessings to you my friend!

    • Mitzi! I am so glad you stopped by. I’ve missed visiting your space. Looking forward to reading your post.

  10. What a crazy but fun time having so many people under one roof. Enjoy the mess!!! 🙂 As I read your post, I wondered if simply sharing the struggle to write is a niche for you. Juggling life and writing…it’s something I appreciate about you.

    • Oh Amy, yes! I do feel that is my niche right now. For some reason, God has not allowed me to stop writing. Thank you for being here!

  11. Sounds like you have a houseful, but what a blessing! I’m glad you were encouraged by the comments last week. We love you and are glad to be a part of this community.

    Blessings to you, dear Barbie!

  12. Beautiful! Thank you so much for the ministry of that song, Barbie! Trusting God with you.

    I rejoice with you for the ministry of encouraging words from your readers. This is a beautiful community. So glad you’ve been spurred on… {{hugs}}

  13. We’re walking side by side in the grammy chaos! I’ve got a little guy and then a new sibling coming in September, and like you, I can’t wait to cuddle that little bundle. Big brother is very active and won’t bear much time in Bam’s lap anymore (unless we’re reading a book!).

  14. Barbie,
    I loved this music video….just what I needed this morning and this week as I face yet another surgery. “You’ve never failed me yet.” Resting in that line from the song…..Amen!

    Glad you have felt encouragement from friends and the One who lifts your head….

  15. So glad you have felt encouraged this week- and I love that song! A friend introduced me to it a few weeks ago and it has been in my head ever since!

    • I can’t get the song out of my head. I’ve been reminding myself of His faithfulness several times a day. Thanks for stopping by Lesley.
