Simply Grateful

As I was sitting and thinking about the year, I figured I should write about it because who knows when I will need to look back and remember just how faithful the Father is to us.  I don't know about you, but every now and then I must remind myself of the daily miracles in my life. With all the distractions, it is REALLY easy to take those simple daily miracles and blessings for granted.

There's Power in Writing

My friend often reminds me that I encouraged her to begin journaling. She shares with me often the power of writing down her thoughts, fears, and dreams. When I made the suggestion to her, I really didn't know the impact it would have in her life.

Persevere | Illustrated Faith

It's been one of those weeks where I've found myself questioning my every move. Should I keep pressing forward? Am I doing what God wants me to do? Am I on the right path?  Oftentimes, these questions begin to overtake my mind when change is on the horizon. I don't mind change, but I would be lying if I said that it wasn't uncomfortable and sometimes terrifying. But even when I am in emotional distress, God always shows up.  This time was no different. The Persevere kit from Illustrated Faith came to my mailbox at just the right moment.  I am usually surprised by the monthly theme so when I read theme on the envelope, I knew it was a word for me--persevere. 

Reflections From a Sick Mama

Yep, I am sick again. This is the fourth time in the past four months that I have been really under the weather.  This is my third bout with Strep. Before you ask, I do not know why I keep getting Strep. I change my toothbrush, linens, and disinfect. No one in my family has caught it. Each time it presents itself on a Monday evening making the week change its course before it even gets started.
