The Space Between

That space between Before & After. That sliver of time between the unknown and the now known. That tiny AND between the here and now. It’s profound what that AND holds. It’s the moment between what you didn’t know and what you know now. It’s the moment between your life before a discovery and the life after the discovery. It’s the space between. The … Read More The Space Between

I’ll be blogging all about our trip later.  I wanted to share a few things that I love and that I find beneficial to me or my family.  We did a lot of walking while there and one of my … Read More Fab Friday Faves

Heart For Missions

She watched and listened from afar. Her young but wise soul taking in every ounce of their conversation. Her eyes were open and ears tuned in and most importantly, her heart was moved. The young man of about 16 or 17 was aggravated with his father. The father said to not get pizza rolls because that wouldn’t fill him up. The young man was … Read More Heart For Missions

The Comparison Trap

    The Comparison Trap is just that… A trap. A trap that leads to feelings of worthlessness, envy, bitterness, and discontentment. It steals our joy. “Oh, don’t worry; we wouldn’t dare say that we are as wonderful as these other men who tell you how important they are! But they are only comparing themselves with each other, using themselves as the standard of measurement. … Read More The Comparison Trap

Heart Issues

    Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭4‬:‭23-24‬ NIV)   My mouth. Sometimes A lot of the time, it would do me good to just count to 10.. Or 10,000. Depends on the moment. Hear me when I say that I’m a … Read More Heart Issues

I’m Not a Good Christian

I was thinking of how often we use the term : “good Christian“. It’s become so cliche. “She’s a good Christian woman”. “He’s a good Christian”. Are they even authentically a Christian? Is there a good Christian? Is there a bad Christian? One implies the other. (Honestly, the term Christian is used incorrectly at times as well.) There are different levels of spiritual maturity. … Read More I’m Not a Good Christian

The ME God Sees

When did I grow up? I’m pretty sure that I still think I’m like 20 something. Until I look in the mirror. Or wake up with an ache. Or somebody that must be not much younger than me says “Mrs. Heather” or “yes ma’am.” Maybe it’s because in my 40s (41 to be exact), I’m learning to like me. Learning to slow down. Learning … Read More The ME God Sees

Choosing My Word

Each year for probably the past 3 or 4 years, I’ve prayed for one word that God would give me. A word that HE wants me to focus on for an entire year. Notice. I did not say a word that I wanted to focus on. Let’s be real. If I chose my word, let’s just say that it probably wouldn’t challenge or change … Read More Choosing My Word

And Give Us Thankful Hearts

      I received a message.. “Do you remember what Daddy said for Grace?” MY mind started reeling. Repeating it over in my head.. Again and again. Was it this? Wait, was it that? Then I finally got it. As close as we can remember. He’s in heaven now. We are left with memories. We are thankful for the memories. A father who … Read More And Give Us Thankful Hearts

Hidden Away No Longer

{Let me preface this post with this…I originally wrote the main part of this post 2 days before God spoke to me through the obedient vessels who are my sweet sisters in Christ. (they know who they are). If you don’t believe that God still speaks to you through others and by The power of The Holy Spirit, well that’s your opinion. Because I’m … Read More Hidden Away No Longer

BEAUTIFUL GRACE

I lost it the other morning. Like from 0-60 in 5 seconds lost it. My poor husband was the victim. He informed me of an important matter and I took it as one more thing added to my plate or stack of plates. They all came unbalanced and toppled to the floor. I have 5 or 6 jobs and you have one!!! I don’t … Read More BEAUTIFUL GRACE
