Unplugging & Reconnecting

Here I sit. With picture ready to post, but no words to share. This is an intriguing season for me as I love words, and sharing words with others. I have found myself in a place in time without words to describe what is going on in my heart and head and it’s strange. I…

So it begins…

My tired eyes lifted open, I gaze around my room. My eyes fall to the right and was met by the slow breathing of my two year old, fast asleep. I gazed at his still and precious face. I smile. Beyond him is my husband all snuggled in with him.  Then, leisurely but surely, our…

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains. . .

From where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber.      Psalm 121:1-3 “A season of fresh beginnings. Of threshing & conquering mountains that have long ruled my life. This year, when…

I will make you into a Threshing Sledge

This verse is messing up my world. In a good way. See, if you follow my posts, you would know that I am striving to be a more diligent person. For some reason it seems to be an unattainable goal for me. At least, in my head it is. I feel as though I get…

Dust Yourself Off and Get Back Up

This life stuff is so hard sometimes. And you don’t want to mess it up, but sometimes we do. We just do. I mean we are only human. Sometimes I wish I could have it altogether like some other people I see. Then, I get to know them more and find out that they in…

Restless & sleepless through the night, I longed for my Beloved

  Here I am. In the middle of winter. Physically cold outside and literally some days below freezing. I find myself in a winter of my own… in my heart. I have felt dull and useless. I’m not sure where along the lines this has happened. I feel as though my flesh has become louder…

Am I Really Lazy?

Here I am again. I always seem to find myself laying wide awake in my bed with thoughts tumbling through my head. I can’t help it. I’ve been like this for as long as I can remember. As soon as my day calms down and my head hits the pillow, thoughts come rushing to my…

Conversations

Here we are driving. Just my hubby, me and our beautiful newborn little man. We had been able to sneak out of the house with the assurance the Nana and Baka (meaning grandpa) were listening for our 3 other little ones. As we are driving my husband tells me a story of a thought that…
