Saying thank you for the dirty dishes, and the stinky laundry, and the messes all over the house has been tossed in my face enough times to make me want to gag. Jesus promises us that God will provide each of us for the day at hand. Mercy is new every morning because we get enough for each day.

I don't have the strength right now to walk with intense faith, but I can, from my emptiness, declare God's faithfulness and goodness over my life. So right now I'm choosing worship over worry.

So I want to take a trip back in time a few months and share with everyone an incredible thing that happened. As you may know, Aaron spent two weeks working on a film in San Antonio. We went up for a quick overnight trip his first weekend there, because I was not about to … Continue reading When God sets you up
Slow. Slow down. No really, slower. It's like this refrain that plays in my head daily. I'm nearly 3 months post-op, and I'm still hearing the same words from the Lord. SLOW DOWN! At first it was pretty simple to move slowly. I literally could not move fast. But as I've recovered, gotten stronger, been … Continue reading Practicing the art of slow
Trusting the Lord has been an area of my life where I am covered in stretch marks. Places where I didn't want to grow, but the Lord has had some work He needed to do, either through me or in me.
