Hey There!Welcome to Nut House Central: An intimate inside look at my crazy life. Where squirrels and nuts are always the order of the day. -Kammie S "Mamma Squirrel"
When you strip away all the material wants, all that unnecessary drama, you’re left with this beautiful thing God gave you. Right now I’m standing in front of my refrigerator, looking inside and I have absolutely no idea what I’m looking for. But what I do know is when I’m out in the middle of nowhere (pic above being that place) I have an overwhelming sense of gratitude. I have a sense of peace and freedom when I look at the skies and the plants and the rest of nature that God provided for us. I don’t want to leave it. I don’t want to go back to work and worry about bills and what’s for dinner the next day and is there enough laundry clean so I don’t have to match socks. (You know it’s true)
And God tells us not to worry about these things but on a daily basis we all fail to follow those instructions to a certain extent. Some fail more than others. And sometimes we fail because we’re constantly trying to share the faith and hope that we have with other people who refuse to see it. We can spin situations to a positive and we can remind others to have what we have in our hearts when it comes to loving our Lord. And I know that I get frustrated because that’s all I can do. I can plant the seed I can attempt to water it. Sometimes I’m pouring water on concrete.
It’s in those moments that the enemy finds a crack, a little hole to seep in doubt and cause you to question everything you claim to base your life on. Those are the moments in time you need to stop and think about what really matters. I’m working on it. Sometimes I get so caught up in the moment I lose track of the blessings. But I’m grateful to have the Holy Spirit to bring me back to where God intends for me to be. And I may not be where he wants me as of yet. But I’m searching for it and I’m trying to take his lead.
And out in the middle of nowhere is where I feel I can hear him the best.

I hope everyone is ready for Jesus to return. Cause this world is screwed up! No one wants to hear the truth, no one wants to be responsible, and everyone wants to blame someone else. Are you flipping kidding me? I don’t let my kids say this to people, but SHUT UP ALREADY! (I typed it I didn’t speak it out loud)
