When Words Aren’t Enough

I continue to water the... Continue Reading →

Battling Our Emotions

Good morning! I wrote a couple days ago about how draining our emotions can be.  God has shown me over the course of this week that the roller coaster ride of emotions that comes is usually when life doesn't look like I want it to... Ouch. What about you?  When do your emotions seem to... Continue Reading →

Pushing Through

Good morning! I set out for a run yesterday and I had barely gotten a half mile in when I had a twinge in my right knee and some nerves speak fire through my left foot.  I thought to myself, "maybe I shouldn't go as far today".  I have experienced pain in my left foot... Continue Reading →

Time Off

Good morning! Have you ever wanted the day off?  From EVERYTHING?  I have had a few days like that... One of our boys had a pretty severe asthmatic attack last week and ended up in the hospital.  We are grateful that he was only in for three days and by Friday we couldn't wait to...

You Are Enough

Good morning! It is so easy to get caught up in trying to be everything to everyone.  Trying to balance the roles we play as mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, employee, etc and what is expected of us in each of our roles.  We can get swept up trying to be "everything" before we know...

Real Genuine True Rest

Good morning!

Finding Joy in the Little Things

Good morning! Finding joy in the little things...When I look at the smile on this boys face as he sips full strength juice it makes my heart smile.  As I sat on my bench watching him I began to think about all the things we already have, all that Jesus has already done, to bring...

Good morning! You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.  Psalm 16:11 So often we chase after joy.  We chase "things" we believe will make us happy and bring us joy.  But as King David so wisely penned...in His...

Let Your Light Shine

Good morning! We have the most beautiful, thick frost covering everything here this morning.  It's been a cold, humid, gloomy kind of morning...and then...the sun peeked out from behind the darkness to show itself in all its brilliant ways. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good... Continue Reading →
