Don’t you just wish you could know how something is going to turn out before you do it? I really do. I’m a terrible over analyzer of my decisions. Oh how I wish I knew the outcome of my action before I follow through with it. To know if I will regret it. To know… Continue reading Do I Really Have What it Takes?
Have you ever wanted to just give up before you even started on something? I have to admit, I’m not a champion in the area of follow through. I usually can come up with some great ideas though! And sometimes have the momentum and willpower to go a ways with them or *gasp*…maybe even finish.… Continue reading When You’re Just not Feelin’ the Resolution
Fear. Such a small word for something that can encompass so much. Our thoughts, actions, dreams, decisions. Every area of our lives if we allow it to. As far back as my memory goes, I can remember being a fearful girl. Afraid of the dark and waking up with nightmares, I would end up in… Continue reading When I am Afraid…
We all have things about us that maybe a lot of others don’t know. Maybe a few things, maybe many. One of mine is this….if I have an abundance of things going on in my life at once, so many activities, responsibilities and just extra things on top of the normal stuff (add in emotions… Continue reading Finding Peace in the Chaos
There is a hallway in my grandparents’ home with ledges that line both walls. These little ledges are filled with pictures. Family gatherings, weddings, baby pics, snapshots of relatives near and far. Some in black and white, some more recent. I love looking at these walls every time I visit. We were staying there this… Continue reading Reaching for Hope
Each night before bed, we like to pray as a family and encourage our kids to start out with some things they are thankful for. Every single night our six year old begins the same way…”God thank you for God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, angels, weapons, axes, pickaxes, and swords…” and then he continues on with… Continue reading Right In the Thick of It
Some nights, even though I’m exhausted, I stay up too late because the kids are finally in bed and I can do whatever I want to do. Because I know that as soon as I go to bed, I have to get up tomorrow and do so many of the same things over, only to watch… Continue reading What’s the Point of it All?
I’ve done it once again. Running, running, running myself ragged. Trying so very hard to get it all done. Feeling like I have to squeeze every minute out of the day to finish what’s in front of me. Searching for things to give me energy, help me get things done, or make me feel a… Continue reading Why Do I Wait So Long?
You know those days when you have so many emotions rolling around in you, but no time to sift through them? Too tired to even start to unravel them? Yesterday was like that for me, so I just went to bed early. When I woke up, they were still there. I was reading a devotional… Continue reading He Knows the Depths of Us
I was sitting in my room just finishing up some things on the computer, when I heard him bounding up the stairs. Our 9 year old boy had been out picking up his gear for practices to start that week. He had been talking about this and looking forward to it for months. His first… Continue reading Why Can’t I Just Pause This Moment?
