I’m praying for some serious fire from heaven, but not for the reason you might think. In the past several years there have been moments I’ve been tempted to pray that God would rain down fire on someone or a couple of someones, but thankfully God has brought me past that phase of this journey.… Continue reading Fire from Heaven
I finally did what I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I didn’t bring work home and I spent some beautiful moments thoroughly enjoying my kids. We spent the evening together without homework, work, or chores. The best, most enjoyable thing was dancing. Seeing my little girls’ faces light up while I danced like… Continue reading Shake it UP
When I started this blog I wanted to offer hope with a dash of humor thrown in for good measure. I can, at times, be a little funny. My amusing side has been slipping a bit lately, and I’d like to find that voice again. As I begin this new year, I’m thinking I want… Continue reading Up to My…Head
For a little bit longer….today is December 12th – I am officially 12 days behind. I’m always behind when it comes to Advent. It’s not like December 1st surprises me or that I haven’t thought about Advent in November. I just all of sudden get overwhelmed by the days and nights and before I know… Continue reading Advent for the Overwhelmed
I tend to be a “nervous Nelly”…a second guesser…a wring-my-hands in worry woman…a twisted up in knots decision-maker… That probably isn’t a surprise if you’ve read my blogs. I’m currently doing a Bible study about discerning God’s will. It has been great. Nothing earth-shattering, but still convicting as I seek His will on other decisions.… Continue reading Just One Day at a Time
This weekend was such a blessing. It set me up for a good attitude Monday…even with the sleep deprivation factor. That factor is just life. I was joking with my daughter that I’d look so much younger if the past 6 years hadn’t happened. I’d be less stressed and more rested…but alas, the wrinkles are… Continue reading Don’t Worry…Just Walk
I have often joked that wherever we go, we are kind of like the Beverly Hillbillies. I should just blare that music from our car when we enter the neighborhood. I’m looking for a house right now. I think maybe we should move out into the country! We are loud and busy and just a… Continue reading Day 5 – What Will the Neighbors Think?
This is gonna sound funny….but I feel like I’ve written all this before…its like deja vu in blogging – which is weird. So if I have said this all before, word for word, forgive me please. It totally is where I am apparently AGAIN. Right now I should be preparing for my first… Continue reading I Need Therapy…of sorts.
Thank you so much for all your encouraging words and prayers. I feel badly that I have used this blog so often to share my struggles, and lately not as much my blessings. I kinda feel like I’m just plugging along waiting for God to “fix” some things. He definitely doesn’t work on my schedule…at… Continue reading My Life…Living It
Does it ever feel like what you do is never enough? Today I did something nice for one of my children and another child got exceedingly angry at me. As if I have done nothing for them…as if I have only chosen to bestow blessings on one child and left the others with nothing. I… Continue reading Feeling a Little Less than Full?
