Reflecting 

Do you ever just sit and think about how different your life was a year ago? I’ve found myself doing that so much this past month. Yeah, there have been days where I’ve thought I’m kinda bored but compared to all that was happening last summer id kinda prefer this summer. Granted three people who…

Doing what’s best for you. 

How do you know when what you’ve done/ are planning to do is actually what’s best for you? I’ve always gotten a lot of negative feedback for going to the doctor every time I don’t feel good but when I don’t feel good you know it. I never lie about how I feel, so how…

Feeling alone

Do you ever have those days where everything just seems to bother you and you just want to lock yourself away because you feel like it’s the best thing to do? That was me today, did I no. Partially because I wasn’t feeling comfortable with being home but partially because people just kept wanting things…

Forgiveness 

Why do we let other people’s harsh words get stuck in our heads? Forgiving those who have wronged us or said hurtful things is one of the hardest things to do. Nobody really knows what one another is facing deep down, so why are we so quick to pass judgment, like “you’re too fat,” “you’re…

Praising God in all times 

1 Blessed assurance; Jesus is mine! Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine! Heir of salvation, purchase of God, born of his Spirit, washed in his blood. Refrain: This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long; this is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all…

Thoughts… For lack of a better title

Do you ever wonder how God chooses who’s mind to put you on and when? God has a mysterious way of working everything together for our good even if we don’t always understand how it works. One of my friends that is definitely going through a much harder time than I am right now took…

Memories

I never really thought about how important memories are to me until today. When someone dies it’s often the case where they’re most concerned with the material objects that they will receive. To me it’s not about the objects but about the memories that you have with that person. If there’s one thing I’ve learned…

Feeling behind.

Do you ever have those days where you look at your social media and just wonder how different your life would be if you were where your friends are, either married or pregnant or have multiple children at your age? Why is it that it’s so easy for us to feel left behind when you’re…

Feeling comfortable with where you are

In today’s society it is often hard to feel comfortable where we are. Whether it be peer pressure related or just self esteem issues. Finding a place in life where you are comfortable is vital when it comes to happiness. Whether it be feeling comfortable spiritually, physically or emotionally it is crucial to just let…

Grieving through memories

I’ve never really been one who is materialistic and has to have the best of the best but when I get something nice I cherish it! One of the hardest things to do after someone close to you passes away, is to go through their belongings. My great grandma and I were 80 years apart…

Timing

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” I think so often when we pray for something related to timing we expect it to be done for us immediately with no concept…

One of the harder parts of grieving

One of the hardest parts of grieving I’ve come to discover is finding a new normal and the said peace with the loss of the person. Holidays generally bring out these feelings more than other days not to say that these things aren’t felt all of the time but being together for special occasions with…
