I am the youngest of three girls, which, if you know me, explains a lot!
Honestly, my parents did the best they could with what they knew. I was a handful.
Our house was just over 1,000 sq ft.
Why am I telling you this, you might ask. Well, because I think it is a part of who I am.
I now live in a house where each of my children have their own bedroom and bathroom (with two sinks!!!) I have a room bigger than the family room in the house I grew up in. And my bathroom…it has a toilet with its own space and door. Not to mention there is a separate shower and bath!
We have lived in this house for years and I still find myself pinching my own arm at times when I pull into the two car garage. TWO CARS! What?!
See, because a girl like me does not deserve a house like this or a husband like Chris or beautiful healthy children. And yet, here I am. Sitting right in the middle of blessingsville. GOD IS GOOD. I know that, because if things had gone my way, I’m not sure I would have made it up off the ground.
My husband is the most beautiful man I have ever seen. We fit together like puzzle pieces. He is strong and protective, yet has the kindest heart of anyone I have ever known. The best part being that he is mine and I am his. He makes me laugh and very rarely do we take a serious photo. That is one of the many things I love about this man.
I’m a daddy’s girl. I still work hard to make my dad proud. That would probably be an upsetting statement for him, but an honest one nonetheless.
I am constantly working on the removal of my character defects. One of which is that I am a people pleaser.
I’m the girl who wants you to like me even if I don’t particularly like you. Weird, huh?!
I know! I’m a work in progress and for me it’s about progress not perfection.
There are so many blessings out there just waiting to be uncovered. I believe that God plants things all along our path.
It is I who am not noticing, not He who is not blessing.
I am both humbled and grateful that God gives me words to express what is in the depths and most of the time He allows my mind to slow down just enough to capture them here.
If you aren’t sure about God…believe there is no God…are a bible beater…a seeker…a Jesus freak…a veteran Christian or anything in between, my hope is that something here will resonate in your gut and move you to positive action.
Most of the time, the hardest part is the starting part. That’s why I haven’t exercised in…well…quite some time. I just don’t have the desire to start.
I am a follower of Christ, a seeker of truth, a believer in Heaven.
Were I not, I’m not sure how I would find the motivation to get out of the bed everyday.
I am not going to berate you with what I think is the only way to God. Though I believe it is through Jesus. I am a spiritual being and this body is just my earthly shell.
What I will do is keep it real. I will speak truth…my truth…to the best of my ability and I will pray for each of you, every day, on this journey.
Thank you for taking the time out of this incredibly busy life to listen to my compilation of thoughts. I hope you will visit often, leave encouraged and know that no matter what, you’re not alone on this road. Remember this truth, God does not change and He is never surprised by anything.
