What’s Your Heart Attitude?

Don’t rejoice when your enemies fall; don’t be happy when they stumble. For the Lord will be displeased with you and will turn his anger away from them. Provers 24: 17-18 Our heart attitude can be entirely different from the attitude we portray on the outside. I know, I am speaking from my own past experiences and having a not so great heart attitude because I let my hurt run my heart. But my Read More »»

This Is How I Fight My Battles

I have a post coming, soon, sharing my word(s) of the year. I've been mulling over what I wanted to write as my first blog post for 2023 and I thought my word of the year post would be the one to start off the year, but I just felt like it wasn't quite right. Not that it is a bad post to start with, I mean it does fit with my self-growth for the year, but I just had a little nagging feeling there Read More »»

I’m Stuck In a Paddleboat and I Am Pretty Sure I Need a Ship

I need a ship and all I have is this little paddleboat!   This ocean of grief makes me feel like I will never find my way to the shore of happiness again. This is such a strange feeling for me, I am the person who always has a smile on her face, finds the positive in literally every situation (and I do see a positive of my mom being healthy and whole in heaven, as that is what Read More »»

Don't grow weary.... That's a much easier phrase to preach than it is to live, right? To be completely honest there are days I simply want to throw my hands up and say, "I'm done, I'm tired, I'm weary, and I just don't want to do this anymore."  But it's in those moments I am reminded of all Jesus did for me.
