It has been a while since my last post and I am so sorry for long hiatus! It has been a crazy time since I last posted. I was preparing for a school Christmas play with my students and finishing up 2 classes with finals the same weekend. WHOA!! With God, I survived it all! LOL! Now, all the laundry and the dishes piled up. The house kind of got super messy and I have to be honest…Chris and I win for gift-giving of the year with our kids. We were set to travel after our Christmas eve service so, we gave our kids giftsRead More →

You make sure everyone is fed, you make time for everyone even when you feel like you have nothing left to give. You give that meaningful hug and kiss! Even putting a Band-Aid on that boo boo is important and life-changing to your little love!Read More →

  Dear friend, As I write this, I am also reminding myself these things. Please hear me out: I see you struggling. I know how you feel when it seems as if the world is falling apart. No one seems to understand what you are going through. Some days you are as happy as those around you. Those days, you aren’t really faking it to make it. There is a glimmer of hope. Happiness IS attainable! Some days, you aren’t as hopeful because you are disappointed with how things are. There are also days where you have had enough, you just want to hide orRead More →

Sometimes being OK, is just not enough

Sometimes, just being able to smile is a hard thing to do

There is so much turmoil I feel insideRead More →

We give up easier than trying… We don’t fight hard enough for those near and dear to us because finding a way out is easier! Don’t you know that there is Someone who fights for us daily? We struggle with thinking that we are alone in our situation. No matter how hard life knocks us, God is FIGHTING for us! His ultimate show of fighting for us was sending His Son to die on the cross for us with a promise of rising again after 3 days and a promise to come back again for us! What a VICTORY we have in Christ!! He didn’tRead More →

“Ok, God, I know You can heal Bella

I know You can make her better

But if Your healing isn’t exactly the way I think it is and Your plan is different from ours

Then, I am OK with that

I thank You, for gifting us a wonderful 2 years with this little determined little girl

Do what You have to do to make her better,

Amen”Read More →

Sometimes in these episodes, I forget that I am His…that no matter what, He is always with me. I may not understand why things are the way they are but He sees everything. He knows what’s going on. He is always where I am and I can’t go anywhere where His presence is not around or with me. That is how much He loves me! As far as fighting well, we just need to STAND. He is fighting for us! He has the Victory!Read More →

Just be there, be available. SEEK US OUT when we aren’t acting like things are OK because more than likely we are not ok at the moment!Read More →
