So Many Changes! Positive Ones Are Happening and I am moving!

Here I am, having not been here in a long time.  So many changes and so much going on.  For the last few months I have been living with my son and daught-in-love so I can teach my grands in homeschool.  My husband has been living where we used to live and visiting as he could. This has not been ideal but it was a mutual decision we made. 
     Finally though I can announce that after much prayer and thoughts we are going to be together again.  He asked for and was granted a job transfer to a city closer to where our son lives.  We have found a 3 bedroom apartment 8 blocks from our son.  We will be moving in next week.  Finally after a very long 9 months we will be together again.  To say we are excited is an understatement. 
     I am hoping this will be a good thing for us and for me mentally, spiritually and physically.  We have found a church home here and the people are amazing.  God is answering every prayer that we and so many others have prayed. 


     As soon as we are settl…

Brave in my physical life in 2019

     Last time I talked about being brave in my Quiet time with the Lord.  Today, I am sharing about my brave battle with my physical health.  I have lost over 80 pounds and then my life went through many unexpected changes.  I let all the stress become my excuse to eat any way I wanted to eat.  I quit caring about me or trying to take care of me.
     At the end of 2018 God showed me if I don't take care of me, I cant be there for anyone.  My word again for 2019 is "Brave", being brave in all areas of my life.  I am working on my physical health as well as other areas.
     Pysically I have been able to stop taking all diabetes medications and cut back on other medications.  I have made 3 main positive changes. 

 They are....
     1) This one should be obvious, making better food choices.  Not just what I eat but how much I eat and why I eat.  I pretty much eat anything I want except really limit fried foods and sweets.  I am not on a specific diet but just making better ch…

For Today

Looking out my window.... I am seeing sunshine after a huge storm earlier today
I am thinking..... I have a prayer request heavy on my heart and seeking Gods will and praying for this need
I am thankful....
for friends who love me and pray for me without question.  I have learned a few real friends are better than many fake ones.
One of my favorite things.... I know he is not a thing but he is mine.  This is my husband of almost 33 years and he is definitely one of my favorites
I am creating.... a space for me for my quiet time with the Lord (no picture yet)
I am wearing.... sweats, jeans and barefoot, it's Saturday morning and not really dressed yet except to hang out at home

I am reading....  "Hope In the Hard Places" and "Brave Love"
I am hoping.... God will answer our prayer this week and He will give us strength and grace to handle whatever His decision is
I am learning.... I am brave, I am worth it and this is my year.  I am working on becoming who i am m…

Brave in my Quiet Time in 2019!

This year God led me to the word "Brave".  In this year I am seeking to be brave in all areas of my life whether it be spiritual, emotional or physical.
     In spiritual I am not even trying to read the bible through this year.  I am just trying to make it a priority every day.  I read different devotional plans and just where God leads.  I am seeking to become the woman that God wants me to be.  I am seeking to hear what God is saying to me.  You can only hear what God is saying if you are quiet.

One way I am seeking His voice is making it a priority.  I read my bible first thing in the morning before I open facebook, instagram or get started on pretty much anything.  I also like to read the last thing before I go to bed even if it is just a verse.  Another way I am seeking His voice is through praying more.  Not just my morning, meal and bedtime prayers but talking to God throughout the day about just about everything.  
One of my favorite places to read is outside …

For Today

Looking out my window... Sunny spring day with still a touch of coolness
I am thinking... that nothing takes God by surprise and we need to lean on Him more and less on ourselves
I am thankful... that even when I don't like me, God loves me

One of my favorite things... spending time with my husband
Taken at our Cowboy Carnival held at our church this past Sunday

I am wearing... Tshirt, jeans and my new cute compression socks
I am creating... boundaries so that I don't get lost in the shuffle of life and be me, the me I am happy with and not the me that others want me to be

I am watching... House Improvement shows, not really into a series but just enjoy these that I can sit and watch a episode and if I miss one, no big deal and then just watch the next one when I have time to sit down and watch


I am reading...I hit a wall on reading the bible through in a year but am reading my daily plans at You version on my phone


I am listening to... cartoons and the younger 2 kids playing …

5 Minutes After You Die!

Bro JD Weido
5 Minutes After You Die
1) You will believe but will it be too late for you?
2) You will seek repentance but it will be too late to find it
3) You will Honor Jesus by bowing the knee, every knee will
4) You will be at your final destination---
Heaven or Hell, where will you be?
5) You will be sealed for one of two judgements---
Which one will you face? The Judgement seat of Christ for
Christians or The Great White Throne of Judgement which
will be where you will face the 2nd death of hell
I hope this will make you think as much as it did me
