Weekend Update

It's been over a week since I posted and I feel bad because I want to try and keep a consistent schedule with my posts, but I don't want to sacrifice quality for quantity. I had a few ideas for things to post, but they weren't the best, and I didn't want to just post something just because.

Here we are at the end of the week, ready for the start of a new one, and I just have this amazing feeling of joy and content. I am so grateful for where I am in my life right now. Each day brings something new and I feel myself growing in so many ways. For awhile, I was unsure if I was on the right path for my life. Not my relationship with the Lord or my marriage, but just God's plan for me. Was I following what Erin wanted and told myself it was what He wanted? Was I chasing the wrong dream? Was I missing my true calling?

Today I sit here, 100% sure, that this path, however long and hard it was to get here, is the path He has chosen for me. I no longer question things or feel uncertain about the things I do, because I know that this is what He created me for. This life I am living right now and all parts of it, even the mis-steps in the past, were all part of his plan. It's a good feeling when you know and what I know is that it was His grace that got me here. Grace for the wrong choices, grace for all the things I said, but wish I never had. Grace for all the questioning and not trusting. Grace for thinking that I was anything less than who He created me to be. Grace upon grace, and that's my story!! I'm not saying that everything I do from here on out will be perfect. I will forever need His grace. I am just confident in the path I chose to follow, and that where I am today, is exactly where I am supposed to be.

It's also the beginning of May, which is crazy! I am so excited for this summer. I have so much planned! New ideas for my blog, house projects, day trips with the family, and the best part, is I get to spend everyday with my lil man. He is starting Preschool in the Fall and I can't deal. Can we stop our clocks for a little while and just live in the moment? I know everyone says it, but he is growing way too fast. I plan to savor everyday until then!

This week I will be apart of two awesome giveaways!! Be sure to follow my Instagram account >> @the.erin.elizabeth, so that you can enter to win!! Here's a sneak peak for one of the giveaways!

I will also be posting a tutorial this week for my 'move mountains' poster that I created for Grey's room. It was a twist on one of my weekly Pinterest projects that I wanted to do.
Here is the link for the original project:

And here is the photo of the poster I created........

Be sure to check back next weekend for my new monthly devotional packet. I will be studying the topic of faith & trust for the month of April. I would love for you to join.

I will also be doing a review of all the Pinterest projects that I have completed so far this year. I am about one third of the way through and going strong. I don't think I have missed one yet.

Finally, I will be sharing some of my plans for this blog that I have for the upcoming months. I can't wait!!

I hope you all have a great week and as always..

Many Blessings,
