Where is My Peace?

Where does the time go?  I can’t remember the last time I could sit down and put thoughts to paper. Things are just too busy.  Each season seems to be busier than the last.  I keep thinking the next season will slowdown…..apparently it isn’t coming anytime soon. God has blessed me with a wonderful job… Continue reading Where is My Peace?

The Rest of the Story…or Running Away

The other day I was reading the story of Elijah and the Baal priests.  How God rained down fire from heaven and burned up an altar saturated with water.  How Elijah prayed and God answered.  How Elijah was blessed to see the power of God first hand and to be a part of the display… Continue reading The Rest of the Story…or Running Away

What’s Wrong with Happy?

Last week I had the most wonderful time sitting at a picnic table studying God’s word, journaling, and writing some.  It was quiet and peaceful. I felt inspired. I had such a blessed time writing more than I have in months, and guess what?  Not one document was saved…not one.  Technology and me….ugh. I was… Continue reading What’s Wrong with Happy?

What Sized Task Are You Dealing With?

Do any of you feel like you are living in a world of God-sized tasks? I feel like I am. In fact, recently while dealing with a rather big issue in my life, I was again reminded of the God-sized task world that seems to be mine. Unfortunately, right now the biggest God-sized task is… Continue reading What Sized Task Are You Dealing With?

Be Encouraged

Everyone has something. You know that thing. That thing that you feel will never go away. Never be easy. Never be uncomplicated. Never be what you want it to be. Never be overcome. I have a few somethings. Some things I can’t figure out what to do about. Some things that baffle me. Some things… Continue reading Be Encouraged

My First Book Review

A few months ago I had the privilege of being asked to write a review for a book by Shannon Upton entitled, Building Your Home:  A Faithful Mom’s Guide to Organizing Home and Family. I love a good book on organization.  I feel like it has been my life’s goal since my first born took… Continue reading My First Book Review

Shake it UP

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

God said No and That’s a Good Thing

I just have to begin by saying thank you for all the prayers and kind words of encouragement. Yesterday I finally called to find out test results.  I was twisted in knots waiting and decided that it was time to just find out already. When I called the nurse took a minute and then came… Continue reading God said No and That’s a Good Thing

A Strengthening Struggle

I’m in a season of blog starting. I start them and save them and kind of forget about them.  I think it is because I want so desperately to be encouraging and sometimes I’m just not.  Sometime I’m just an all out mess. And my blogs can reflect that mess quite well. And I have… Continue reading A Strengthening Struggle

Up to My…Head

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
