Tired..

Current situation….. Not going to lie, this afternoon has been a bit cray. My little people have been off the chain. (Did I miss a full moon somewhere?) Loud, crazy, messy and did I say LOUD? They raised their voices. I raised mine. No one was being heard. Tiny people quickly release those frustrations andContinue reading “Tired..”

Little Victories

Today, it happened. And I can’t contain myself!   Today, I stepped on the scale and lost it. It’s not as easy to lose the weight after baby # 3 and God knows I’ve been trying. And today it has finally paid off. I’ve lost…. Not 20.. Not 15… No, not even 10.  I’ve lost…….5……Continue reading “Little Victories”

No More Excuses

❤ Disclaimer: Pardon my scary no-makeup naked face and hear my heart. ❤  As a mom of 3 little ones under the age of 7, time fills up quickly. My middle child is up before the crack of dawn each day so that takes my morning devotion time most days. My oldest hates school duringContinue reading “No More Excuses”

Don’t Hide Your Gift <3

Since the beginning of time, God has been in the fixer upper business. He doesn’t generally pick those in the front of the line.  He’s known for patiently waiting on those the world overlooks.  The rejected, despised, “too young,” “too old,” inexperienced newbies.  He takes the ones who are picked last in gym class and brings themContinue reading “Don’t Hide Your Gift <3”

Your Prayers are Precious to God 

Reading in Revelations this morning, I was humbled to the point of tears.

(I know sometimes it really does feel this way, doesn’t it?)  No, my sweetContinue reading “Your Prayers are Precious to God “

In the Potter’s Hands 

Sometimes we find ourselves being thrusted into uncomfortable, unfamiliar places. Life gets unbearable, painful and just plain sucky at times. It’s easy in our human nature to tense up, clam up and close up. But instead – God wants us to grow. He wants us to prosper and gain wisdom and knowledge. And sometimes weContinue reading “In the Potter’s Hands “

Step Into the Light

Light and darkness cannot coexist. Either there is total darkness without the presence of light, or there is light overtaking the darkness.  Think about it. Your bedroom is pitch black because all lights are off. When you turn on a lamp or flip a light switch – instant light! The darkness can no longer remainContinue reading “Step Into the Light”
