I Wasn’t Ready to Say Goodbye

It hit me like a ton of bricks. I knew it was coming. We were blessed with the time we had…I was for sure there would be a miracle. Instead, there I sat on my bedroom floor in a puddle of tears. Not ready to face reality. Someone close to me had passed away. It […]

Confessions of a Mom: Who Hates to Clean

As I lay me down to sleep I know my clothes are in a heap I told myself I would get to that But my best intentions again fell flat The dirty dishes reappear each day The counters are in constant disarray I send up a prayer for new resolve Hoping my mindset will evolve […]

When It’s Not the Most Wonderful Time of Year

Did you know statistically, the holiday season is the highest ranked for depression and suicide? “How can that be? It’s such a joyful season.” Because, dear friends, some people don’t know the true joy of the season. The Grinch is right, it doesn’t come from packages, boxes or bags. Christmas does mean more! Very much more! It means the […]

Joy in the Journey

  A preacher once said to the congregation, “If you aren’t going through a trial then you better get ready for one or else you just came out of one.” As a Christian, this statement is so true. It seems we are always faced with different trials, tribulations, and testing. It’s how we handle them […]

Joy in Affliction

“Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed, Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalm 126:5-6  The first time I read this verse I immediately thought of my children. Being a parent is hard! […]

Grief After Loss

 “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.”  Psalm 139: 13 NIV The hands that made all of creation hold our hearts in His hands. We have all faced grief at various levels throughout or lives.  Life is full of trials and hardships that we must all endure.  I know for me, […]

Thank You For My Cutting Boards

  Today I watched a video of a young boy opening his birthday presents. At first, it was apparent that his first present may have been his only present. His first present was a cutting board. He opened it and read the card and thanked his mom by giving her a hug and kiss. He […]

Pushing Through the Pain

Recently in life,  I have been going through a bit of a trial. The strange thing about it is, that once I saw it as a refining moment, my whole perspective changed. It became less about the people and circumstances involved and more about the work God was doing in me. Can I just say […]

Joy With Children

Lately, I have been in this season of life of acknowledging the fact that I have two strong-willed toddlers.  On top of that, one of them is really emotional.  A lot of nights I would get in bed and just pout because the day had not gone as planned or the memories were not anything […]

Joyful in the Lord

Everyday life is tiring. We are worn out and exhausted as a mom! We end the day in defining all our failures throughout the day and promises to do it better the next day. Except the next day comes, and we are back to the same old routine, or somehow our kids are worse then […]
