Thankful

Have you ever just took a moment to give thanks? Right now I’m watching my son, who should be asleep, giggle and play. Instead of being flustered because he’s not on a schedule, I choose gratitude. After all, he shouldn’t set the tone; that’s on the parents. There was a time when my heart was…

Waiting games

Today has been interesting. Constant baby squawking that tried to upend my theology. I usually get what I pray for—and I’m thankful! It gets tough sometimes and I feel like sulking in a corner, too. Being too emotional doesn’t fix a thing; it just keeps me from having the right perspective. Have you ever found…

Is Your Faith Alive?

This past week I’ve experienced just about every emotion known to man. I faced fear, discouragement, sadness, happiness, glee, you name it. Why? I was facing some things regarding my son’s health that I’ve never experienced before. Some would just chop that up to, “young/new mom jitters.” I won’t downplay that, yet I think it…

When Nothing is Left

As I was looking on Facebook this morning, I saw someone’s comment that said, “After I finish giving to my own, I have nothing left,” which was in response to a post encouraging others to take care of home before pouring into others. Oh, let me tell you something, dear reader. You may be reading…

What Do You Have to Lose?

Have you ever been at a place that you felt you were at the bottom and you had nothing else to lose? I have, and it wasn’t pretty. It never is. 2004 was the year. And I was over it. I didn’t make a plan, just a decision. As soon as I was about to…

Truth…From a Millennial

  “Too young to care,” is the attitude they say we have. But do we? No one wants to disobey but when the system they created causes you to doubt everything you’re supposed to believe in, what then?   Yeah, we’re the millennial generation, but that doesn’t mean we could care less about organized religion,…

Anticipate

Sometimes I anticipate the day when we have a houseful of laughter from our own dream team. For now, I’ll rest because we never have a dull moment with our first miracle. Our little ones scream, wail, laugh incessantly, cry, crawl at turbo speed, etc. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed but isn’t it a blessing to…

Elevate

Don’t worship me, please.

Scott

Running, playing, throwing the ball, he laughed as his 20s carried on… Kids overjoyed and wife full of vigor he smiled, carving a memory on his heart… “She’s only 55 Lord!” he cried as she exhaled forever…he refused to forget the lady I never met, except for that time in heaven I can’t recall… We…
