Suck it up, and be a man!! January 29, 2009
That is the title of a book I want my husband to write. He is what I call a real man….a man who loves Jesus, his family and others. I can’t tell you how incredible and refreshing it is to have that in my life. Jesse isn’t perfect and neither am I, but we have something that is solid and true. I have someone who passionately loves his kids, what is better then that. Who isn’t stuck in the world, but wants nothing else then to glorify God and be the head of his house in that way. Why am I saying all this… because my heart is breaking for families. We have had to many of our friends break their families apart by doing stupid things, thinking that they could find something better outside their family. I just don’t get it!!!!What is better then seeing your kids laugh,cry and fall in love with Jesus. What is better then loving another human so much that your heart aches. People are missing out…it makes me so sad. We need to stand up and be proud of our families, men and women alike need to get in there and work hard everyday for their families . My heart hurts for those kids that see their daddy leave and never come back or thier mommy get lost in a world of drugs. They need to be loved…to see love….to know love. And I know that is only found in Jesus, who is Love. That needs to be our foundation. We need to fervently pray for families….pray for husbands and wifes…..pray for kids….that we all can find that love.
God’s Calling… January 10, 2009
At Project we are talking about our calling in life. It’s something that I have prayed and thought hard about, but the problem was that I was not actually listening. I forget that I am in the midst of a calling God had placed in my life, to be a mommy . I think us “mommies”(and daddies-totally you are in here also) sometime forget that the calling of motherhood(which comes in all shapes and sizes) is a incredible gift and calling to have. I get lost in the stress of it, the late nights and mess and I forget that God had placed this in my heart a long time ago. I remember being in Freshman speech, and our teacher asked us to give a speech about our dreams. My dream was to be a mom. A little wierd for a freshman to talk about, but little did I know that years later I would be a mom to three babies. I think it is the coolest job ever, to be responsible for life that God created, how crazy is that. Our calling is as different as we are to eachother. But each of us was created with those differences so God could get the glory in so many different ways.
New name ….we will see if this one sticks:) December 28, 2008
So I have now found three famous cows called Claribel, and I just can’t get past that now. So we are going with a name we have always like, well at least since we heard the music of Schuyler Fisk. I think we will go with Skylar for the spelling instead so no one calls her strange and unusual things like I grew up with. We will see, Jesse has always liked this name, and I have never thought much about it, but it is growing on me rapidly. We think we are going to go with the middle name Bella, so cute and beautiful. So it’s Skylar Bella Fagerland –I hope you all like it—we sure do. I got to tell you it is hard to find a cute name to go with Fagerland. I don’t know why:) So Skylar means ( Shelter) and Bella means ( Beautiful) and Fagerland means ( beautiful land-serious). Love you all….I went and got Skylar her first ballerina skirt yesterday, it is so adorable, I can’t wait for her to wear it.
Christmas time is here…. December 26, 2008
Here’s a bunch of pics from our Christmas 2008. We had a awesome day and the boys had so much fun getting all kinds of new toys. But the best part was knowing that we had a gift from Jesus that was even better, His Love.
If you can believe it we are super excited about the new little girl in our life. We decided to name her Claribel, which is French and means bright and beautiful. It is two names put together – Claire and Bella- a family name(Claire) and a name she will probably be called a lot(Bella). We just love her so much already!! Josiah and Remi know there is a baby sister in mommy tummy and give lots of kisses everyday, it is the cutest thing ever. I am just dreaming of purple and pink:)
