Coffee Date Vol. 6: Life Lately

Coffee date Vol. 6: Life Lately Sharing a few life & blog updates over a nice cup of coffee! Grab yours and lets chat!

Fall is here and I couldn’t be more excited about it! The temps this summer in Sacramento were brutal. I am embracing cooler weather with wide open arms!! We had lots of soccer this weekend and I spent my time on the side lines bundled up in the early mornings! LOVED it! Anyways!! Here we are for coffee date Vol. 6  and I am thrilled to share a few things about life lately.  If you missed last months coffee date you can find it here! If you missed the month before that, you can find that one here! 3 things I wanted to share with you all…. Keep on reading to find out what that is!!

  • Fall is always a re-set time for me.  A time of evaluation, goal setting and even figuring out what season I am in.  Lately the scripture that the Lord has been highlighting for me is this one: “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.” Proverbs 16:9.  Often times we expect for things to go a certain way.  We even plan for them to go a certain way and then when they don’t we experience disappointment.  I have been learning to rest in this scripture as well: “The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the LORD holds them by the hand.” Psalm 37:23,24. The essence of these scriptures is that God is in fact in control and cares about every detail of our lives even when we are not perfect.  This season is a season of trust for me.  Leaning into the heart of the Father and realizing that I can plan, but things might not go according to my plan!

Speaking of Fall! This dress is SO perfect for Fall, from Apricot Lane.
  • My parents are FINALLY moving out here!!! YESSS!! They will be here in less than two weeks!!!!! I can’t believe it! In fact it does not feel real!! My brother and I moved here from CT in July of 2013. We left my parents behind and we have been longing to be together ever since! They sold their house and are taking a leap of faith! They will be driving across the country with a few belongings and joining us here in CA! Truth be told, we miss them SO much and REALLY need their help with the kids and our crazy schedules.  The timing could not be perfect!!

    I love the sandals you’re wearing at the coffee house – so darn cute! And what a fabulous thing that your parents are moving here to sacramento to be close to you and your brother. I live in land park, my brother in elk grove, and my sister in pocket/greenhaven. Our parents were in lodi/stockton but moved to greenhaven to be closer to their children and grandchildren. we now see them at least twice a week. and a few years ago my 25-year old daughter ashley bought a home around the corner from me. It’s so incredibly wonderful to have family living close by. 🙂

    “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.” Proverbs 16:9.” This was today’s ‘verse of the day’ on the bible app so seeing it again on your blog it’s a true sign that i should hold on to this verse. it arrived in a timely fashion.

    i’m happy that you’re excited for your parents’ big move. wishing them a safe coast to coast road trip. that’s gonna be one exciting journey.

    Fall has got to be my most favorite time of year! everything is dying, sure, but how beautiful does the world look – dying. the riots of orange, auburn, reds and maroons. its something out of a dream.
