We're finally back from our trip to my Dad's house and South Lake Tahoe!! We had such a blast and so much fun that I didn't want to leave and wish I were back there with family again. It's always so hard to leave family after visiting them. I miss them so much already.

Kai and his cousin Ethan (Efan) had fun together at Babu and Bebe's house. Here's some shots of them hangin together.

Bebe bought them matching outfits so they looked like twins the whole trip. It was really cute =)

Kai went in Babu's pool for the first time ever and loved it! He's my little water baby

Here's my nephew and Kai's cousin, Ethan. He is super cute and soft and chunky - I just wanted to squeeze him the whole trip. Kai got really jealous and didn't know how to handle it.

Even with a little barf on his chin he's super cute. Good job Ian and Jessie!

That concludes the first chapter of our trip. We stayed at my Dad's for the first 2 days visiting before we drove the remaining 3 hours to Tahoe. I will post more tomorrow!

Faith in whom???

Faith in myself, or at least that's what I've been confronting lately. I didn't realize just how big my faith in myself was and how little my faith in God is until Ryan and I began talking about our future. Housing in particular is where I find myself struggling with trusting God for the perfect home.
I have to confess, my personal relationship with Christ has dwindled significantly. As a good friend of mine put it "we never just stand still in our faith, we're either moving forward or falling backward". I think I have definitely been falling backward. My desire to be with God in the mornings and to do His will before my own is seriously week and lacking.
Please pray for me. If you're ever thinking of me, just lift me up in a quick prayer asking God to ignite the flame of passion again. I know that apart from God I can do nothing and it is He who gives us the desire to pursue Him in the first place. My hope is in Him and in the truth that it is He who is showing me my sin of unbelief and pride. Thank God I'm not blind to it and that I'm grieved over it and want to change. That right there is an evidence of His great love and mercy.
