Music for Monday

stay close by my side
keep your eyes on me
though this life is hard
i will give you perfect peace

in this time of trial
pain that no one sees
trust me when i say
i will give you perfect peace

and you'll never walk alone
and you'll never be in need
though i may not calm the storms around you
you can hide in me
burdens that you bear
offer no relief
let me bear your load
cause i will give you perfect peace
stay close by my side
and you'll never walk alone
keep your eyes on me
and you will never be in need
though this life is hard
know that i will always give you perfect peace
i will give you perfect peace

perfect peace by Laura Story

thankful that God gives perfect peace and is faithful in all circumstances. Amen.

Let the Sunshine

What two great warm sunshine-y days! So nice and I expect that we'll be on the trampoline for awhile today! Life has been full and I have a hundred blog posts that I've written but they are all in my head and not on the computer. Today I want to share some pictures of life in the Dougherty household over the last few weeks.

Some things I've been thinking about lately: food, studying the Bible, parenting, budgets, what makes a home a haven, priorities, health, and a few other things...hopefully I'll get a chance to process some of that here soon.

On Halloween we went over to my parents' church's Fall Festival.
Quinn was Buzz Lightyear and Sela was a little cowgirl

Sela showing off for the paparazzi

Quinn put together a big puppet show...

A little Daddy time on a nice day...
and do you notice something new on Ryan's teeth?

Sela and Daddy...and Daddy's new braces

There has been a lot of life going on in the Dougherty household.
A lot for Ryan which really deserves its own post. Wednesday Ryan got braces which will be on for the next 12 months. I think he always has the greatest smile but the dentist and orthodontist think he has had some dental issues because of his bite and in order to prevent further issues--the metal was attached! For Ryan, the braces are just one little thing that he has been navigating. More to come.

We took Quinn and Sela to the park and loved watching Quinn on the slide and Sela do her best to follow Quinn
. They are both on the move!

This season is full but it was good for all of us to take some time together and play!
