This is for the birds!


Hahaha....this pretty much sums up how I have felt lately. Birds everywhere. Birds have made nest in both our vents for ventilation on each side of the house, one in our broken front porch light, and one in the tree by the front porch. You walk out our front door and you better watch out because a bird will fly and hit you in the face. I joked too because a lady gave me the bird the other day while driving. So, I just can't help but to think, what's up with all the birds??

Well, I can tell you. God. He is showing me something. Just the other week I read this scripture:
Matthew 6:26
Look at the birds in the air, they do not sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?

Phil and I are taking a step of faith. We do not know what our future holds after the end of May and it's not a little scary....it's a lot scary. And being the "wonder woman" that I am (always wondering and worrying), I'm a bit concerned. But, the Lord has reminded me that he will take care of us. We will follow and serve him and he will provide. I know that all these birds around me are just signs that he takes care of them, and he will take better care of us. 

I have though, enjoyed seeing the beauty of these birds. The way they make their nest is incredible. 




The Britt's are pressing forward...even though we have no clue where God is taking us. #BELIEVE #FORWARD


I think this just may call for some new outdoor pillows....maybe in a bird pattern? :) ha

I Like Mine Well Done!

I like my steak well done. And that's exactly what I am today....well done! Actually, a well done steak would be nice right about now...haha.



I walked out of my last class for this semester yesterday and I am so relieved. This semester was a tough one ....with 5 classes.
-Principles of Interiors (commercial spaces)
-Residential Design
-Graphic Presentation
-History of Furnishings
-Digital Architecture (Photshop, Google Sketch-up, and Illustrator)

Yes, I learned a ton. Yes, about design, but also about my life. I learned that I have one awesome husband. He has cooked, cleaned, picked up the kids, listen to me yap about my instructors, and never complained. In fact, he encouraged me the whole time. I sure couldn't have done it without him. I have some pretty awesome kids as well who have cheered me on too. I am one blessed girl. My friends have been pretty awesome as well.

Today, I am busy doing dishes, laundry, cleaning toilets, picking up kids and I'm loving it. I want to be a "well done" wife and mom everyday.

And of course, I want to hear "well done" from Father God one day. I want to serve God by serving others while I am here on earth. I love helping people and I pray for opportunities to do so everyday.

Phil and I are looking forward to the next couple of weeks. Although the future is unknown to us, we are standing at the crossroad and asking God where the good path is. We are ready to walk in it. (and we hope we can eat some good steak along the way). Jeremiah 6:16
