I have been kind of struggling lately with all the things of this world. Friends, my faith is secure, I know who made me , who loves me, and where I am going, but I am human and I have good old (or maybe bad old) human thoughts. I think it may be partially from my rebirth on Facebook. You see and are bombarded with so much life stuff at such a high rate in such a small amount of… Read more »

I don’t usually take to this space and talk about controversial things. This place is a place of encouragement, a place for hope, and for love, and for honesty. But today, I had to step away from any and all forms of social media. I had to rid myself of the hate and evil of this world. I had to just make it go away. I wasn’t promised this life would be easy. I don’t believe in a God that promises sunshine… Read more »

Make me pretty? I look down from the mirror and see the most beautiful little girl staring up at me. I lift her up and sit her on the counter. My love, you are beautiful. Mommy can’t make you pretty, you already are. No I not. And so it begins. I watch as she swipes the eyeshadow over her eyelids and brushes her cheeks with my blush. She doesn’t even know how beautiful she is, and she is only three.The… Read more »

source Can I just start out by saying, God is good. Like, so good. I have spent some quiet time away from this space lately, and to be honest, I miss my fingers punching these keys, and I miss my thoughts just pouring out, but it has been good. In a world that is so fast paced and one that never turns off, quiet is good. I think I can speak for most moms when I say that I spend… Read more »

I read once that you can’t keep having babies just because you like having babies. Such wisdom right?! At least for me. I love babies. I love everything about a newborn. Being pregnant, the birth, breastfeeding, waking up at all hours, co-sleeping, baby wearing,  all of it. I guess that’s why I have four babes. Only thing is, those babies, yea, they grow up. Having little people is tough. I am embarking on this new stage of parenthood and it… Read more »

The alarm goes off. I barely even wake from it now. But on this particular morning I look over at my phone to see the time, 4:30 a.m. on the dot, every single morning. I roll over and fall back asleep. I hear the shower going but am in and out of sleep and awake only to the slightest brush of a kiss on my cheek. See you later, love you. Have a good day, love you. I am asleep… Read more »

I have been feeling extremely sentimental lately. I don’t know if it is because the holidays are approaching or if it is because having a baby in the home again has made me much more aware of the time that is passing. Whatever the reason, I have found myself wandering into the kids’ rooms late at night just to take a peek at them. When doing this I have to squeeze my eyes shut tightly to shake away the picture… Read more »

Six Months. Where did the time even go. This little boy that I prayed over, that grew my faith in God, and helped me face my fears, was just in my belly moments ago. Or so it seems. But now, he is rocking my world. Loving his mommy more than anything and making me feel so very special. God blessed me big time with this sweet little love. With the snuggles he gives and the long stares that I feel… Read more »

2 John 4-5 It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father has commanded us. And now, dear lady, I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another.   This verse screamed out at me this morning. I don’t know if it was because it was saying “dear lady” and I took that as though He… Read more »
