*HONEST POST WARNING* There will come a point in your life when you don’t know what to do. My husband and I both like to know stuff. I like to have a plan, to know what’s going to happen next. My husband likes to know he’s always right. Haha. We’re both stubborn. Last night, we […]
We’ve all seen the funny memes about carrying all the groceries in one trip. It’s funny because it’s true. What’s not so funny, though, is we try to do that in life too. It seems like you hardly ever carry just one burden. Most of the time, it seems like we are carrying the weight […]
True worship must express more than love for God; it must also express submission to His will.
God works in ways beyond what my mind can imagine, what my heart could ever dream!
Why is it so easy to run away? To all the homeschooling mamas out there, maybe this will make you feel better: We had a rough school day today. (And it’s not over, I just somehow had a minute to take a breath.) My children don’t want to think. They would rather cry because they […]
There’s a lot of ‘What Ifs’ in this life. What if I don’t get this job? What if I never get married? What if I never have kids? What if we don’t have enough money to make it this week? What if something happens to _____? What if we don’t make the right decision on […]
Once again, God has used my children to speak to me. And once again, it’s about broken things. And once again, I’m just going to share my heart openly with you. I used my daughter’s curtains for a wedding last weekend and we just got them out of the car yesterday. She brought them to […]
He signed my Bible with Philippians 1:12: But I would you should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel; As a little girl I wondered at that verse. Surely there was a more poetic one? Or at least one that could bring you […]
Happy Mother’s Day this coming Sunday to all you wonderful mothers out there! I hope you get pampered and get to relax this weekend. But honestly, you probably won’t. Because you’re a mama. And even if we get pampered, we still can’t relax. I thought I’d lighten it up a little bit and admit some […]
My daughter fell on some rough concrete yesterday and scraped her arm up pretty good. Once we got her settled down, she immediately started telling me all the things she didn’t want to do. I don’t want to take a shower, it’ll burn. Please don’t put anything on it, it’ll hurt. Help me take my […]
I am so unprepared for Easter this year. It’s this Sunday! I’ve been reading about the triumphant entry of Christ through the city of Jerusalem. I remember making Palm branches as a child in Sunday School, learning about the colt Jesus borrowed to ride into the city, and making little tombs out of paper plates. […]
I wrote this post late last night with the intention of scheduling it for next Thursday. But this morning, I can’t get it off my heart. I woke up singing the song. And I’m praying that maybe by the time this day rolls around again next week, I’ll take my own advice. March 21st. It’s […]
I have no life changing revelation to share today. Nothing to say that you don’t already know. But I need to say this out loud. Because the doubt and worry is so loud in my head, I’m afraid it might get lost. Count your blessings. We sing the song, we see the encouraging quotes, we […]
“Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12 Deferred – to put off to a later time; prolong; delay We live with a lot of hopes. I hope it’s gonna snow. I hope traffic isn’t bad. (And it always IS!!) I hope I get […]
Hello to all my readers! I’ve been thinking and praying about doing a private study group on Facebook. And I’m excited to say that one of my good friends will be joining me! We are still working on getting everything ready to go, but the study will be called, “Suffering: A Mirror or a Window?” […]
At the beginning of last year, I was feeling better than I had in a long time. I was looking forward to doing so many things I hadn’t been able to do. I made plans, had dreams. And then about the middle of January, those were all crushed. I progressively got worse and worse. 2018 […]
