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…

Nourish What You Want To Grow

Nourish the seeds you planted if you want them to grow. A farmer’s process isn’t something that renders results overnight. The process is a time consuming and laborious cycle. They must prepare the land by loosening the soil in order to plant the seeds. They have to ensure the minerals and nutrients in the ground…

When I Don’t Feel It

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.

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…

WHAT DOES DISCIPLINE LOOK LIKE TO YOU?

“For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11 WHAT DOES DISCIPLINE LOOK LIKE TO YOU? Is it refraining from indulging in those decadent treats? Is it going to sleep every night before 10 pm…

When forgiving feels impossible

As a child growing up, I remember feeling the sting of rejection. My biological father was nowhere in the picture. I thought surely he must have wanted a boy. Because why else would he not be there for me. As years passed anger grew. I felt like I was not good enough. Unloved. Rejected on…

Happy New Year

How exciting! So we survived 2018! Yessss!!! I say this laughingly. 2018 was great but boy was it challenging. There were moments where I wondered, am I on the right path here? Am I doing enough? Is God pleased with my work? As the year came to an end I sat in bed sick for…
