Each month I will write down some insignificant details that happened. Some months it will be each day and some months it will be a summary. This is so that I can see the insignificant details that God is working together in my life for His story. They usually aren’t big events, but God is working in all of the details big or small.
November 1- The in-laws came into town to visit and watch the boy.
November 2- Date day with my hubby. Massages. Sushi. Despicable Me 2. Pasadena. El Cholo Cafe. Yogurtland. Time spent with my hubby without the boy. It was a gift.
November 3- Malibu. Paradise Cove Beach Cafe.

There are so many insignificant details this month that have helped me grow and helped my relationship with the Lord grow. If I hadn’t been keeping tabs on each day this month I could probably have said that I didn’t see God do much. I would have stayed in my full-time wife, full-time mom, full-time job fogginess and wouldn’t have seen the little things that added up to my story of what God has done. He has blessed me with in-laws that drive 6 hours to watch our boy so that the hubby and I can go out. He has started to put pieces together for changes that are coming with my family. He is working. God is showing me in the little things what I have missed about His tender love. He is the only reason that my life makes sense. I so often forget that He is working in all things. He hasn’t forgotten about me. That is a truth that I need to remind myself of each day.
