First Day!

Well we all survived the first day of school!  My first day with students was Tuesday, and MRC & KJ completed their first day today!  Wahoo! I can't believe I have a sophmore and a seventh grader.  They are growing up so fast!

Have a Beautiful Day!

~New Me~

I love this time of year!  As summer break comes to a close, and we prepare for school to start I feel like it't time for new beginnings. I have had a crazy busy summer, yet I have had some time to really seek out God's will for me and my life, as well as my role in my family, ministry, work, etc..  I have to come to a conclusion (with some gentle prodding, or hard shoves in some cases), that I need to begin with me.What I mean by this is I need to start taking care of me physically, emotionally, spiritually before I can be effective to anyone else.  So if I it seems I have pulled back or I am not around much it's me not you! I promise.  Some of the ways I am doing this is by getting healthy, diving into God's word everyday (making it a priority!), and getting rest!  I am in the process of setting some smaller more attainable goals to work up to some bigger ones. One of those I am actually breaking now so I will end for now, but will update soon!  What goal am I breaking?  To get more rest! (I will not use or be on  the computer after 9:30 p.m.)

Have a Beautiful Day!

Our God!

So I was cleaning out the storage closet earlier this week, when I came across a journal I kept just after my Car accident in 2005, and as I read through it, it reminded me that I am not alone in this world!  My God is Bigger than anything the world can throw at me.  And even though I can't see the bigger picture, God knows it and will see me through the struggles of life.  This picture sorta make me think of that! 

When looking through pictures from camp the last two weeks I found this picture and it really spoke to me!  Maybe its because I have been battling with my thoughts lately or feel attacked emotionally, but it gives me hope!  I know and believe that God is Bigger, Stronger, and more powerful than anything on this earth. And that God is with me lifting me up, giving me hope, encouragement, peace like only He can. A Chris Tomlin song plays in my head when I see this picture: Our God.  

Here are some of the Lyrics:
Into the darkness You shine

Out of the ashes we rise
                                                   There’s no one like You None like You 
Our God is greater, our God is stronger
God You are higher than any other
Our God is Healer, awesome in power

Our God, Our God

No matter what the world throws my way, I know my God is Bigger! 

I know this is kinda random, but its me.  I know I am not alone in this battle against the world! So pray for me and I will pray for you! 

Have a Beautiful Day!
