October Goals

I can't believe we are already over a week into fall.  October is one of my favorite months.  It officially feels like fall is here, the holidays are right around the corner, and pumpkin everything is available.  And you better believe that I will be sipping on apple cider, wearing boots and big sweaters, and going to the pumpkin patch even though it's probably going to be 80 degrees.  I don't care because I'm ready for fall.  And to be honest, I'm so glad that October is here.  I need a fresh start.

September brought some particular challenges into the Johnson household.  We faced some struggles that we haven't really had to deal with before.  But through it all, I can confidently say that our faith has grown exponentially and the Lord's faithfulness is so evident.  In the past few weeks we have really learned to communicate, lean on each other and diligently pray and trust for God's plan to work out in His perfect timing.  I'm so excited to see where He will take us and am so ready to dive into October. 

I want October to be a month where I really take time to appreciate small things.  I don't have any big plans for this month, but want it to be about time with family and friends and savoring life's small moments. 

Here's to a fabulous October!
