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 [...]
I sit and stare at a certain wall in my home, almost all day, every day. I made a gallery wall of sorts a while back. I mainly used things I already had, 1 or 2 pieces I got a long time ago from hobby lobby with my 40% off coupon, and some things I [...]
For anyone that's been following my blog for a while, you know I've been dealing with dizziness for over 3 years. It has been a hard trial to go through. At the beginning of 2018, it got so much worse. I couldn't sit or walk or lay down or do anything without feeling off [...]
Splinters. Oh the terror it used to be to get a splinter out. It takes a village.... to get a splinter out. Someone to hold the child, someone else to hold a light, and another someone to get the splinter out. My daughter got one in her toe today. She is tough. If she has [...]

The fact is, God's name can't be found in Esther. But faith can see Him. Today, lets CHOOSE to just trust Him. Because He knows the whole story.
This year I purposed in my heart that I was going to pray even more fervently to be healed. However, it seems the more I pray for it to get better, the worse it gets. I sat in church on Sunday and watched from the very back as people worshipped and testified of God's goodness. [...]
"I don't think everyone around us realizes the burden...I just don't know how to do this, and others don't understand." This was said to me the other day and it kind of hit me over the head. It's a very low place to be where nobody knows. Where nobody sees what you're going through. Where [...]
