Hormone Therapy

Up, down, sideways, turned around, lopsided, twisted, cattywampus, topsy-turvy and loopy.  Yep.  That pretty much sums it up some days.  Let me be real, some days as in TO-day….  and when I experience these wide range of hormonal emotions, two things are highly guaranteed to happen: 1 – No matter how much I tell myself,…

It’s Your Breath…

I haven’t blogged much lately.  Several times over the past few months, I’ve sat down and started, but never finished.  I used the excuse that I’ve been too busy, when honestly, the things I want to share have just been too difficult…  until now.  I’m not breathing well today. My chest feels tight and heavy.…

Subtly Infertile.

That word does not sound pretty in my head.  Instead it sings a song of failure, inability, insecurity and sadness.  It feels foreign on my tongue and if spoken, it gives way to fear, anxiety and doubt. After 2 1/2 years of trying to conceive, my husband and I decided it was time to see a fertility specialist.…

“You are a good mother…”

This morning I was directed from a book I’m reading, to “pick up a pen, close my eyes, and ask my Creator to whisper His unique designations over me.” Before any doubting thoughts could over take this opportunity to hear from God, I put down my book, grabbed my journal and pen, and went and…

Sweaters, S’mores and PSL’s

Fall is here!!!!   Woooohooooooooooo!!!!  If you can picture me dancing around in my living room with sweats, a hoodie and a beanie on… you have just seen what went on earlier this morning.   I make no apologies for that mental image… and yes Momsy, I did run into the coffee table once or twice.…

Beyond the Shadows

How do we get through the heartache of loss, the pain of death, the disappointments, the betrayals, the broken promises, divorce,….  How do we get beyond the very thing that is hurting our heart? My dear friend Eimi taught me something earlier this year about finding peace amidst the storm. Eimi flew from LA to Dallas earlier…

Unpack the Box

“Unpack the Box” We all have packed boxes.  We pack these boxes with things we don’t need every day, but don’t necessarily want to give up either.  We throw all the stuff in that that we don’t want to look at every day, but in the back of our mind, we all seem to have that photographic memory of…

Deeper Into Your Presence.

“Repent of Doubt” Have you ever felt that the Lord is calling you to do something you are uncomfortable with?  Calling you to a place where you’ve never gone and you’re not really sure if you really want to go?  I have found that when He’s calling me to those unfamiliar places, He’s really calling…

37 Reasons to Wait.

  Today I celebrate my husband’s 37th birthday.  I contemplated giving him a note with 37 reasons why I love him.  But, the more I thought about it, and the more I thought about him and the man he is, the more I thought about what my life was like, without him.  I started thinking about…

He’s in the Waiting

My grandmother used to say, “God answers your prayers in three ways: Yes. No.  & Wait. And most of the time, He answers with wait.”  I have found myself wanting…. no, desperately needing a resolution to a matter with my children for seven long, hard years.   Somedays I feel as if Jesus is right next…
