So Worth It

I realize that I have not been as active on this blog lately as I would like to be, but I've recently come to a very important realization.
My child is worth it.

She is worth my undivided attention.
She is worth my time.
She is worth missing showers.
She is worth messy top knots.
She is worth a face without make up (and in my case- eyebrows).
She is worth a dirty house and a sink full of dirty dishes.
She is also worth all the headaches and loss of sleep and exhaustion.
She is worth everything I can offer, but I know my time is the most important thing I can give her right now. I know that time is short and life is fleeting. We never know what the next hour may bring. I want to live in the now. I want to cherish every sloppy drooling kiss. I want to cherish every hug and cuddle. I want to cherish every cry for "mama" paired with outstretched arms. I want to cherish every smile, laugh, and giggle. I want my daughter to know that I love her and I will always be a soft place for her to land. I want her to know Jesus. I want to teach her right from wrong. I want to lead her down the path that will enrich her earthly life and give her an amazing eternal life.
Sometimes later never comes, so I chose now. I chose her.

Be Careful Little Ears What You Hear

We turned on VidAngel to see what they had added this week and the movie Wine Country was on there. So I decided to check out the filters and as soon as I clicked on language, it turned into a silent film (the black bar is what is taken out)! 😳 250 things I didn’t want my ears to hear made this movie (even with filters) not worth it for us. 95 of those were use of blasphemy. 😔 I didn’t even get to any of the other filters and just decided to find something else. Sometimes we become numb to what we hear and see in movies and tv shows until it’s all there, in black and white bars. I’ve looked up movies I’ve watched before and was SHOCKED at what my ears heard (even if I didn’t realize the sheer volume of profanities). Psalm 119:37 says “Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways.” Philippians 4:8 says “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if

Be Sober & Be Vigilant

The past few (weeks now) have been an extreme journey through a very dark rabbit hole... one I never thought to peek into before now. Just the brazenness of satan to use Christ as a vehicle to promote his own agenda, makes me shudder in disbelief. It’s nothing new, but definitely bolder than ever before, leading unsuspecting souls into destruction. It just makes me so sick, sad, and angry. Angry at myself for allowing the enemy even a tiny foothold in my life, regardless of my obliviousness to it all. May God have mercy on those honestly manipulated by the enemy, even unbeknownst to them. There are many people, preachers, worship leaders, churches,etc. claiming the power of the Lord,  but are we paying attention to the Holy Spirit enough to discern the genuine from the frauds? The Bible warns us about these kinds of people and it's important that we listen and take heed!! "For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and preform great signs and wonders to deceive, if

Unmother

Please note: This was a post I have struggled to publish. I have not used this blog too often to put too much personal information out there, but after studying about  unity and maturity in the body of Christ  through Ephesians, I knew I needed to be authentic. I hope you accept the following with open arms, knowing that I am bearing my very soul to you.Not many people know the struggle that I have faced, but I am beginning to realize that it's important to share in each other's burdens . SO here I bear my burdens, sharing with you in my heartache, that I might also encourage you, bearing your burdens as my own. Today is Mother's Day. Growing up, I never dreamed that this day could be associated with anything but happiness, joy, and thankfulness. When we experienced the miscarriage of our only baby on October 31st 2014, bracing myself for Mother's Day was something I didn't think to do. With the pain of my loss and everything on my plate with Christmas j
