Mommin’ is Hard

“You are young, but do not let anyone treat you as if you were not important. Be an example to show the believers how they should live. Show them with your words, with the way you live, with your love, with your faith, and with your pure life.”

1 Timothy 4:12 ICV

I love my daughter. No surprise there. 🙂 I love her to the Moon and Paris and back.

This post gives me so much joy! I am excited to write it, excited to share, and feeling overwhelmed with God’s goodness and blessing at the same time.

Open and Close Doors

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, I could not imagine owning a house on my own.

But God.

And this is the story of my home.

Positive self talk. I ams. Changing the mindset.

They are all so important to life. To living life. To living well!

I have barely blogged this year. Every time I open up to start writing, I’m blank and I close it back up. This morning was no exception and I almost did the same thing… and then I remembered.

Already, But not yet

Live in the sphere of what God has done for you already, but not yet.

Pastor Ryan

Last week, my best friend encouraged me to listen to the message from her church. We attend different churches, each wonderful and one of the gifts of that is to be able to share messages with each other that we didn’t hear on Sunday.

Our Puppy Story!

When my daughter was about five years old, she was begging for a puppy. I flippantly said, “maybe when you’re ten.” That solidified as a promise in her mind. Ever since then, she has randomly told people that she was going to have a dog when she was 10 years old.

Well, my friends, she turns ten in June! Crazy, crazy how fast time goes.

I don’t, He does

My daughter is struggling again with health. We thought the Celiac disease would be the answer – and of course it is AN answer, but not the only one. Something else is going on too and I have no idea what it is. Her stomach issues are out of control again, she’s in pain, fear is abounding and I. Don’t. Know. What. To. Do.

Power Pictures

Today’s post is a series of pictures that I am printing to help hold myself accountable, to stay encouraged, and keep my focus on God’s power and not my own. Most of them are verses taken from Romans 7 and 8 and are in my blog from yesterday. I believe there is power in having the word in front of us as much as possible and I also believe in pairing affirmations/God’s word with pictures that evoke good feelings in us. Many of the verses I put with pictures of myself… because these are God’s promises to me. (And you, of course) They are pictures that make me feel good and will help me stay focused on the goal.

After the verses, there are three more quotes – the first my daughter fell in love with and the other two are quotes that I find powerful and relevant. Enjoy, friends!
