2020 seems to be the year to remember. So many things have happened in these long 7 months that it'd take a whole blog post to rehash it all. But this post is not for that. Instead, I want to share some of what I've been struggling with and hope that I can encourage you. … Continue reading Be Anxious In Nothing
Good Christmas Eve all! I just wanted to share an experience my husband and I had this week that has encouraged us and hopefully will encourage you. We are humbly and gratefully expecting our first child, a bouncy baby boy due in February and were at my doctor's appointment Wednesday for my first bi-weekly check … Continue reading Let God Use You
Wow! My life has been a nonstop vacation for the past two weeks. Last week my husband Nicolas and I went to a large church convention that lasted Monday night through Friday morning. This week it's his family reunion in Austin, Texas by the San Marcos River. And amazingly enough, these two weeks have provided … Continue reading There’s Not a Friend Like Jesus
Luke 9:23.. " And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me." How many times have I read this scripture, seen it splashed on farmhouse décor, coffee mugs, and shirts, and never really stopped to think about it. … Continue reading Thy Will Be Done
The New Year has come in a whirlwind! 2018 disappeared almost faster than it came! But I entered into 2019 armed with my New Year's resolutions ready to do business. Now here it is in March, and I do believe I've made a little progress. This post is not actually about my resolutions. Instead, it's … Continue reading No More Thinking About It, Just Do It!
Have you ever sat still for a moment, maybe at home, and felt a sudden tidal wave of worry and anxiety bear upon you? And this tidal wave, you realize, isn't just now hitting you, but instead has been chipping away at you like the waves on a coastal cliff. This was me a month … Continue reading Be of Good Cheer- Encouragement During a Storm
These past two weeks have been a whirlwind of troubles. And I don't know about you, but most of the time I end up worrying and fretting way too much instead of praying and trusting the Lord. Then one day, early in the morning like today, I decide to open my Bible app to see … Continue reading Today, I Choose..
It's funny to me how I can be oblivious to myself sometimes. Truly. Because I have always felt like I was one of those people who deeply understand themselves, and knew my true person. But to be honest, I've changed a lot over the past few years, and I've realized that I'm not the same … Continue reading Think On These Things: 5 Ways to Think About the Good Things
Thoughts, thoughts, thoughts... And more thoughts! Being of an anxious, overthinking, and sometimes fearful disposition, I battle thoughts running through my mind like that scene in The Lion King where Simba sees the herd of wilderbeasts fleeing the hyenas and tripping over themselves and running into everything in the canyon. Thoughts and questions and scenarios … Continue reading 10 Ways to Help an Overthinking Mind
This January has given us Georgia residents some major foggy mornings, to the point that visibility is down to, oh I don't know, less than 100 ft (which is not much when you're driving). One such morning I was driving to meet my mother for a shopping trip. I had decided that because it's so … Continue reading A Foggy Morning, But Through It All
