Battle of Discouragement

Discouragement is such an ugly feeling. Those overwhelming thoughts that say we just aren’t good enough or not doing enough drown out God’s truths about who we are. I’ve battled with discouraging thoughts that roar like the chaotic waves in the sea. Thoughts that have attempted to make me feel as though I am not…

Nothing Is Impossible

As I sit here this morning rocking my granddaughter to sleep, I began thinking of the visions God gave me a few years ago. I remember thinking to myself during my baby Christian stage moments, “That’s just crazy and impossible. There’s just no way someone like me could ever do these kind of things.” Then…

CURVE BALL

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A DAY THAT IS JUST GOING GREAT AND ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU GET A CURVE BALL THROWN INTO YOUR DAY? That was me today in a nutshell.  Actually that’s been me for the past 4 weeks.  Lately life has been throwing me curve balls that literally leave me swinging through…

Deflated

Well this morning started off on a not so exciting note. Jeremy missed the bus and I was stuck having to roll out of bed to run him to school before the bell rang. Sounds pretty plain and simple right? Well it wasn’t. Just picture this. Pjs, unbrushed hair in clip, last night’s makeup, and…

The Choice Is Yours

Thursday morning I was finally starting to feel a bit better. My voice was much better and the aches in my joints were finally starting to lesson. It was still difficult to do my usual routine so I opted to take another day of rest. As I sat here on the couch I started thinking…

Crazy Visions

I woke up Friday morning with that Cinderella, after the ball, feeling.  You know the part where she had to be home before midnight, before her beautiful gown turned to rags and her carriage turned into a pumpkin.  The smile was still spread wide across my face, all the while my heart was still dancing…

Twin Powers Activate!

Twin Powers Activate!!! Do you remember the Wonder Twins?  (Ok, let’s not do the math and think on age here.  LOL) Growing up, I would watch this cartoon called the Wonder Twins.  It was a brother and sister that were twins.  The moment they would lock hands, or bump fist and say out loud, “Wonder…

Focusing On The Negative

What we choose to focus on bares so much weight on how our day will go. Whether or not we will accomplish our goals. Whether or not we will make that relationship work. Whether or not we will meet those expectations we have self-imposed or those imposed by others. Focusing on the negative deprives you…

Let Freedom Ring

The excitement and anticipation for another 4th of July celebration has simmered down.  I can still hear the last of the fireworks filling the air and see the glow of those spectacular colors gracing our skies from my bedroom window.  This was another wonderful day with family, over indulgence in all the great foods and…

Just Be Still

This morning I jumped out of bed at a little pass 11:00 😱, rushing to get my day going. Why rush you ask? Lol. This happens to be one of those days where I have a million and one things to do. A day easily consumed by the chaos of the busyness. I darted out…
