I don’t know about you, but I have had an emotional roller coaster of a week! Tonight as I’m writing this to you, I am fighting a horrible headache, which in turn has my stomach doing flip flops. It’s no fun, but I’m fairly certain it’s brought on by stress. I struggle with anxiety daily. God and I have been having some talks about it, and this week I’ve been talking to Him more about it than usual. I don’t know why I have such a hard time letting go of worry and why I allow my mind to take
I like to start the week by digging into the Word a little bit. I’m hoping you do, too, which is why I started sending you these Sunday night emails. These are my own ramblings, but when God speaks to my heart, I really love to share what I’m learning. Tonight I want to bring up something that I said to a friend this morning. A few days ago, she was down and out with a horrible gastro-type flu. You know how it is, it’s quite possibly the worst kind of bug you can catch. We were supposed to have
This may be the most cliche thing I can say as a Mom, but I’m going to say it anyway. I wouldn’t trade one day of raising my teen girls for anything. I’ll take each mood swing, each time they talk back, each sweet conversation we have while driving from place to place. Each of these moments is a precious gift to me, and I’m hoping we can sit down for a moment and talk about why. GOD’S AMAZING, WONDERFUL, COMPLETE AND BEAUTIFUL GRACE. I am here today because I am loved with an everlasting love, from a God who holds nothing back.
A few weeks ago I wrote to you about mothers day. I shared a little bit of my story and how I lost my own Mother at a young age. I also gave you a little assignment to help you dig deeper. That post was difficult for me to write, and when I wrote that, I had no idea that I’d be writing what I’m about to share with you today. I had no idea that I’d be eating my own words and following my own advice when I was suddenly faced with two sudden and heartbreaking deaths in the
Last week, we talked about knowing God’s plan for us, seeking His will and following, even when it doesn’t necessarily “feel” right or match our own plans. It’s tough to do, isn’t it?!?! I hope you were able to take a little time, answer the three questions at the bottom, read your bible, and really reflect on how God is working in your own life. This week, I’m shifting gears just a little bit. It’s Mothers Day. A joyous occasion, where we celebrate all of the Moms in our lives! There are flowers, brunches, pictures…spring is in the air,
When God seems quiet…listen! I’m starting this week in the middle of a season of many changes. Some good, some scary. I’ve been in the middle of some decisions that will affect generations of people, as well as some small decisions that only affect me and my family. Whether big or little, these decisions lately have really bogged down my heart. I’ve been tired, restless, anxious. You name an emotion, I’ve likely felt it in the past month! The difficult thing with decisions is knowing whether or not you are making the right one. It’s so hard!! I’ve been praying more than
