Forgiveness

Are you hurting today? Are you struggling with forgiveness? There is so much freedom in forgiveness. If you are struggling to forgive someone, you must do it. It will destroy you.

Light in the darkness

Aging.  I am not doing it nearly as gracefully as I would like to.  I have developed wrinkles, gray hairs, gained weight, and my body itself has had more surgeries and procedures since I hit 40, than any other time in my entire life.  I will admit, it is vain, but it is the truth.… Continue reading Light in the darkness

Thankful for sacrifice

Today I am thankful to live in an country where men and women serve and protect us.  This is Veterans Day.  A day where we should take time to be thankful for those that lay down their lives for us, so that we may have freedom.

Thankful for the gift of life

Birth is a beautiful thing.  I had the honor of carrying 5 babies, and delivering 3.  Avery being the first.  She as a big and beautiful baby, who came into this world on her own terms with a very dramatic flair to her delivery!  She is still all of these things!  She was everything I… Continue reading Thankful for the gift of life

Thankful for seasons

Seasons of weather and seasons of life are beautiful to me.  I love to see the transitions of the 4 seasons.  The dead of winter, sometimes covered in snow that makes the earth beautiful and surreal.  Always followed by the beauty and rebirth of spring with new growth and life.  The wonder of summer and… Continue reading Thankful for seasons

Thankful for the gift of creativity!

I come from a very creative mother!  She is an amazing artist, seamstress, and crafter.  She makes it look easy!  I remember at some point her telling me that if I volunteered her for one more thing, I would be doing it on my own.  Shortly after that I learned how to sew my own… Continue reading Thankful for the gift of creativity!

Thankful for our home

Home.  I love our home. I love coming home after being away.  I love driving up the driveway and seeing the warm lights welcoming me in.  I love the smells and feelings I have when I’m in our home.  Home though, is wherever we are together as a family.  All of us.  When one is… Continue reading Thankful for our home

I surrender all

Y’all, this is something I have shared with very few people.  About 2 1/2 years after Adam passed, several people started to encourage me to put myself out there again.  I was young and still had a lot to offer.  I wasn’t sure of what exactly I had to offer.  But I decided to give… Continue reading I surrender all
