Today's goal: to be an abiding woman not a doing woman. #authenticvirtueblog

Hello, sweet people.

Today’s life goal? Eating enough and keeping my overwhelmed heart at bay.

It’s been a crazy, beauty-filled week with our out-of-town trip to see family and now news that the lovely rental we’re crazy about is ours and ready for a June 1st lease. Top that off with my body still in the miscarriage process and you’ve got the perfect mixture for my sitting around all day craving junk food, good books and a lack of packing.

It’s okay though. As much as I want to be super woman, I’m not; this season of life is pointing out that fact quite clearly.

I do want to take the time to say thank you to all you amazing people who reached out to us and sent your words of love and guaranteed prayers. We’re doing really well. Of course, sad days come and go but God is still good and we’re resting in Him during this days together.

Which reminds me of something … Dalton. He’s simply the best. It really doesn’t matter how sad, grumpy or hormonal I am — he proves himself to be in love with me, and more importantly, in love with God. His care is absolutely perfect and I couldn’t imagine living life with any other man.

(When you’re man hunting look for someone who will be able to hear your heart and help you bear hard days. Look for someone who chooses to understand your hurt all while finding ways to make you smile. These men aren’t perfect so don’t look for that … just look for someone who is truly, fully in love with God. )

So, life is busy right now. I’ve so many exciting plans for our new (bigger!) rental. It has a fireplace, an adorable 1950’s yellow kitchen (with an oven insert and island), and many built-ins. My favorite part? A large porch partially hidden by bushes. I expect many good, coffee-filled mornings spent in that place of refuge.

We have family coming this Sunday to help load our U-Haul and unload at our new home 5 miles across town. The first time we moved we did it in 5 days and completely on our own (we liked the challenge). But help sounds perfect this time around and I’m looking forward creating a home from our new rental.

I may a be a bit quiet over the coming weeks but know that I am so thankful for you. I’ll have a lot of fun sharing pictures of our new home, a post on my morning routine, and more words on the gains and losses this miscarriage has brought. There’s a lot of good in pain and God always leads us through loss in love.

Hope to be writing soon!

Love, blessings and coffee,

Frannie
