stamping up north: Give Thanks

stamping up north: Give Thanks


Today has been one of those uneventful days, but a good one none the less. As I have anticipated coming home to write in my blog, I just wanted to share with you what has been on my heart for several weeks. I know my post seem to be random but I am trying to share my journey. I want to encourage you young mothers out there and any mother for that fact to cultivate your adult friendships. Trust me women we need each other. When your children are grown, you will need these friendships. Don't be afraid to be a good friend. This takes work but is so worth it. Sometimes we need to plant, sometimes we need to weed and sometimes we need to water. What do you need to do today? Call a friend.

The Promised Land Journey

Well ladies I attended the Beth Moore simulcast today and thoroughly enjoyed by day. I must confess that I was extremely tired from my 13 hour day yesterday,but I forced myself to get out of bed and go. This is another day in my journey. The main thing that was so profound to me today was and I confess that it is simple but yet so true.

GRACE is the only gift that you can give and keep at the same time. Try doing this every day. I am going to try and do this. Thank you God for your Grace. We have got be secure ladies. Realize your place in Christ. Today's post is short and sweet because I am extremely tired. Have a blessed Sunday and go to churh somewhere.

Promised Land Journey

I am doing a bible study right now, "One In A Million" by Priscilla Shirer I am doing this study for our Womens Ministry at Church. This is really an amazing study. We will begin this study in the fall. More on that later in the summer. I am sharing with you my journey to the Promised Land. I have not made it there by no means, but I am learning along the journey. I was raised in church my whole life so I know the church lingo, but ladies there is fullness of life in HIS word and his Holy Spirit. The bible says "In His Presence is Fullness of Joy and at they right hand there are pleasures forevermore." I want to live in that place, but that is a hard place to stay. Life comes at us so fast that it is almost breathtaking somedays. I want to admonish you to sit in HIS presence, listen and learn. I hope you join me on this journey. THe Holy Spirit wants to help us find our way, "Search me O God and know my heart, try me and know my anxious thoughts; and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way." PSalm 139:23-24 Are you anxious today, turn it over to Jesus and let him lead you, He has it all in control.

Take the Mask Off and be Rea

Well what a day this has been. I have many deadlines at work and I pray the Lord helps me get through the toughest part of the school year with a smile on my face and a song in my heart. Ladies as I was trying to go to sleep last night after having a steroid shot and a B12 shot, I could not help think why I wanted to start this blog. I came to the conclusion that I just want to help women young and old, not that I have all the answers, but just want to be transparent and real. Come on women it is time we take off the mask and get real. We all have either been through it, or going to go through it, so relax and be real. Do not be ashamed of all of those emotions that so easily creep up on us everyday. Give yourself some credit and live intentionally. Strive to be like Jesus and you will live intentionally. Continually ask yourself that question. I know that is old school, but it brings you back to reality. I hope you have a blessed day tomorrow and remember to be intentional.

This is a new adventure for me and an accomplishment that I have been wanting to achieve for a long time. As I sit and ponder the reality of my life, I can't help but think how blessed I am. My husband, (the love of my life) and I have just attended the wedding of our oldest son and welcomed a lovely daughter into our family. What an amazing and stressful journey, but we made it and I am eternally greatful for my children. My youngest son is about to graduate from the local community college and enter the last two years of college. He has moved out into the "Mancave" in our backyard. Ha Ha, I know that is funny, but he is learning how to live on his own and pay rent. Life is good. I must say this Empty Nest is not fun, but we are making adjustments.

Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:4
