When We Pray We Are Heard

“Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.” Jeremiah 29:12 Today was such a productive day around here. I woke up before my alarm and with sleepy eyes, like a little kid wiping my eyes I asked my husband if it was Frozen time. We…

Embracing Joy During the Heartache

Wrapping up a wonderful Thanksgiving week with all our kiddos and family. Thankful to have spent these days wrapped in the love of our family. In all honesty, my heart was pulling away from the festivities even before the week had come. I wanted the days and weeks to just speed up to January 2nd….

Set Apart and Don’t Even Feel It

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 When God created you, it was by no means an accident. He created you with a divine purpose. He gifted you specific treasured gifts and talents…

RESCUED

“He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support.” Psalm 18:16-18 I stood with tear…

Don’t rush the destination

We recently took a family road trip to Florida. This was a first for us. Neither of us had ever felt comfortable driving a distance like this. 6+ hours seemed like too much. So we decided to take our trip with ease. Not rushing straight thru from Texas to Florida. But instead making a few…

Last night I was watching Better Together TV on TBN, and one of my favorite worship singers, Kari Jobe was on. She was telling the story of her sister and the suffering her and the family had endured after losing her baby. It was heart wrenching. As Kari told her story she said she was…

CHOOSE TO BE POSITIVE

Welp 🤷🏻‍♀️ the verdict came in. Large herniated disk bulging out onto the sciatic nerve creating immense pressure and pain in lower back and right leg. This explains my inability to sit, walk renderring me bedridden. Surgery for my back is being scheduled as we speak. . . . As I see it. I can…

When Our Plans Don’t Go As Planned

Welp this week didn’t go as planned. I thought I’d add a little humor to today’s post with this image. It just seems fitting for how my week has been going. Have you ever had something planned out so perfectly and then out of nowhere, your plans were abruptly changed? It almost always doesn’t feel…

Heart Shaped Box of Chocolates

Happy Valentines Day! I just love this day and everything chocolate about it. I mean seriously! This day everything is dipped, coated, sprinkled and baked in chocolate! Seriously, what’s there not to love! On Tuesday my girlfriends and I got together for our biweekly Bible study and celebrated Galentines Day! We had such a blast…
