Two Years of Freedom

I’m finally free-  free from the bondage of food now I eat to LIVE  Today marks 2 years since I found food freedom!  Two years ago today, I embarked on a new way of eating- a plan called “Trim Healthy Mama”, developed by two fabulous sisters named Pearl and Serene. Before I tried THM, I […]

glory gazin’

we’re glory gazin’ chowing down on Chick-fil-a the sky- our dessert!  Having two teenage daughters is… interesting.  I never quite know what to expect.  One minute they are screaming at each other, the next minute they are hysterically laughing together.  It is an adventure, for sure! The other day, I picked the girls up early […]

Windows

Separate  inside from out  behind curtains  we peek out   illumination  cannot hide the life that carries on  inside  I have been thinking a lot about windows. I have always loved glancing into windows of the homes we pass by when we drive through neighborhoods. Shakespeare said it best- “Eyes are the windows to your soul”. […]

a little closer to home

I’ve wandered near and far in search of you looked high and low for a perfect view when all the while all I had to do was look a little closer to home  When my husband has the whole weekend off, I love for us to do things together.  He is a meticulous planner, and […]

born to fly

You can’t keep a butterfly  down born to fly-  won’t stay  on the ground  flitting and floating  you’d think it was gloating that her post-cocoon freedom  was found!  “Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest”-  Psalm 55:6 My girls went back to school this past week. […]

Christmas Dishes

being “present”

The moment I seek and desire His presence- I find He is near Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near.  Isaiah 55:6 Twilight is my favorite time of day.  It is a time of two-fold expectation for me- expecting to see something beautiful in the sky, and […]

What I’ve learned at 40…

I’ve learned that 40 really isn’t that old and not to believe everything I’ve been told the older I get, the faster time goes and the wiser I get, the more I know I don’t know I’m a mom, and a singer- but those aren’t the things that define me because I’m a child of the […]

holding on

My girls aren’t little anymore. Overnight, it seems like the playroom has become a museum- frozen back in a time when the girls pretend played for hours on end with their Barbie dolls.  Doll clothing and toy pieces still litter the floor. There’s a part of me that wants the playroom to stay that way […]
