Smoke and Mirrors

How many times do you meet someone and wonder how they have it all together?  Or how many times have you found yourself envious of what someone else has?  We have all done it, so it’s okay.  No lying needed.  No cover up required.  Doesn’t mean it happens all the time.  It is a moment in passing, especially if you are working on your walk with our Lord.

Really?

Oh joy.  It’s February.  Valentine’s Day.  I am behind on my cool mom stuff I always try to do.  I don’t have my décor up.  I am sure being sick the past 3 weeks may have something to do with it.  But I have the mom guilt.  If you are a mom, then you know what I mean.  Mom guilt makes no sense.  But we have it.

Not Their Responsibility

I have been wanting to write this for a while now.  I  was not quite sure if I could explain it the way my brain has thought it out.  Probably not, but it is worth a try.  Here goes transparency. Continue reading

Children Learning Truth

One of the greatest gifts we can give our children is the ability to be honest.  To teach them that lying is a sin.  We are just going to call it what it is.  One of the things that seems to be hard to overcome is explaining good vs. evil. I suppose it depends on where your religious views lie Continue reading

From The Hearts of Babes

This probably won’t be a very long post.  The picture says it all.  I try to incorporate God into every aspect of my children’s lives.  I am not perfect, I don’t claim to be.  Pretty sure I covered that already?  If not, then there you have it.  I may have seen a few squirrels. I do my best not to be judgmental, and if I have that human moment I am saved by the Holy Spirit kicking me in the face.  Really.  Sometimes we can all just be so stubborn.

Revelation in the cold

*Definition of super cold: ME
I promise all you have to do is ask someone who knows me.  It is 73 degrees in my house right now, and I have on fuzzy socks with a sweatshirt over my t-shirt.  I have on jeans cause I am too cold to go look for my sweats.  Some call it lazy. No, really I am just cold.  Maybe being cold makes me lazy.  See there?  We both win. Continue reading

Righteous Entitlement

There are just some things that make me really angry.  There are some things that I have had to learn are not worth being angry over.  It does nothing but upset myself, send my anxiety through the roof, and once that starts it is difficult not to let it overflow in to the rest of my day.  And then other people can feel it permeating off of me.  That is not what I want.  And frankly, neither does God.
