I'm done...I think

Pshew! It's been a whirlwind of changes around here, hasn't it?! I finally redesigned my entire website, which was what I was trying to prevent. At any rate, I am loving my website now--thank goodness! LOL! I hope you enjoy it, too.

I am interviewing inspirational people and will be updating those as the interviews are completed. I am also included a new section of reviews, including books, music, etc.

Come back soon!

Thank You, Jesus!

Tonight I am sitting here thinking about all the things Jesus does for me. He lifts me up when my spirit is sad. He gives me wings to sore above the clouds of sorrow. He gives me hope when it seems like everything is crumbling around me.

He comforts me and takes me into His loving arms when I need grace. He is my loving Father. He knows all and sees all, yet loves me anyway. He died for me--for ME--so that I could be saved. Oh what a blessed Savior is He!

He knows my heartache. He feels my pain. He brings rest and peace to a wearied mind and heart. His love is everlasting. It never ends; it never fails.

Blessed be the name of the Lord, Jesus, forever! His mercy is everlasting. His grace and goodness abound.

Long were the days of my sorrow. Tears seared my face until His nail-scarred hands wiped them dry.

He suffered for me. He took stripes upon his back so that I could receive healing from all infirmity. My gentle, loving Savior bore it all for me. Sweet Jesus, You are my King!

Thank You, Jesus. Thank You for everything. Thank You for caring so much for me, even when I didn't care for myself. Thank You for loving me, even when I didn't love myself. Thank You for giving me life and freedom and liberty in the spirit.

Thank You, Jesus!!

I have been so focused on problems and "stuff" lately. It all becomes to overwhelming at times that I feel like I can't even take another breath.

Today I am reminded to enjoy the sweetness of life. Trials and tribulations are bound to come and go. But the sweet things in life are always there, right under our noses if we only stop for a moment to enjoy them.

Here is the sweentness in my life:
  • Baby boy playing "grown-up"

  • Daughter playing school and pretending to be "Ella"

  • Husband honoring our family by defending, protecting, and upholding our American rights

Sweetness abounds. It simply chooses to show up in different forms for different people.

What is your sweetness?

Sorry folks. I know many of you click frequently to check for posts. I am just really bumfuzzled right now. Have been for months now. I can't think straight, much less write anything of any value. If you are a praying person, please remember me in your prayers. I need them right now!
