Merry Christmas

Thank you for being a part of our lives and joining me here on my little corner of the world. It has been such a joy and blessing to share with you encouraging messages and snippets of my crazy fun filled life. This year Rene and I had the joy of becoming first time grandparents…

Never Give Up On Your Dreams

Remember Joseph? In Genesis 37, we learn about a young man named Jospeh. Here’s a guy, that as a young boy had these dreams. Dreams no one understood. If anything, many were offended. Joseph suffered long trials and his circumstances often seemed so bleak. Nothing like his dreams. Time after time Joseph faced a set…

The Love of a Momma Bear

“And He could bear Israel’s misery no longer.” Judges 10:16 As a momma bear, I have been tested so many times by my boys. Testing me to my limits on certain occasions. And to them it was either funny or they knew this time mom wasn’t having it. I mean, seriously, those boys knew how…

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…
