96 days until #40in2020

Mother’s Day was just a few days ago.  I suppose most of us are aware of that.  This year for Mother’s Day I received a couple of gifts that were inspired by Bible verses! The featured image of this post is actually the picture of the back of my t-shirt.  My husband and I myContinue reading “96 days until #40in2020”

I’m Giving Grace for That!

So…we have been home for nearly 7 weeks now. I quit smoking on February 24th, like 2.5 weeks before the shut down.  What are the chances?  I don’t know what specifically made me choose that date, but it felt good so I did.  I’ll be honest and tell you that I have caved a coupleContinue reading “I’m Giving Grace for That!”

Week 5 of Quarantine

As of today, we have been home for 5 full weeks.  5 weeks that my kids haven’t been at school, seen their friends and just gone out to do their normal things.  5 weeks that I haven’t worked as a substitute teacher.  5 weeks since the older 3 kids have been to our house. 5Continue reading “Week 5 of Quarantine”

This has broken my heart, along with my kids. For some reason this morning I woke up withContinue reading “My Camp”

Epiphany

I guess that I should have made this post yesterday. After all, yesterday January 6th was in fact Epiphany. Only I didn’t know, I needed to write this until I finished my book a couple hours ago. Isn’t it funny how life works? I read the book “Remember God” by Annie F. Downs. I startedContinue reading “Epiphany”

Sweet Spot

I am in the middle of reading “Remember God” by Annie F. Downs.  I am hoping to push through and finish it in the next 2 hours before I have to go get my youngest from school.  Though, I was moved to stop and post!! This idea of being in our sweet spot.  When sheContinue reading “Sweet Spot”

Home: Recognize

A new year means a new 30 day yoga journey with Adriene!  Yoga with Adriene is a favorite for me.  I can do it in my own home, at a time that works for me and without any judgment.  Interested in yoga, but haven’t started yet?  Google Adriene.  Many videos on Youtube available.  Long, Short,Continue reading “Home: Recognize”

Grace

A gentle reminder to be gracious in your speech. To think about what you are saying and how, especially around young ears. Teaching them about how what you say and to whom matters. That being our kindness and tolerance should be noticed in our words. Happy Thursday Friends. May you find your words to beContinue reading “Grace”
