Babies

6 Feb

My niece was born yesterday. She is beautiful! It brought back a flood of memories of when my oldest daughter ,who will be 9 soon, was born.  Holding the little bundle of joy is pure joy. Babies are like a kiss from heaven  or an angel in your arms. What a gift this little girl will be!

Peace

9 Apr

Easter Sunday is coming up in a few days. We celebrate the resurrection of Christ. He died on the cross for our sins and rose again on the third day. I think this gives me such peace and joy to know that the God I worship and pray to is alive. He is real.

I also believe Jesus still heals and the stripes he bore on his back are representation of that healing. I heard from a friend today that her MRI came back negative which is awesome. Her dizziness she was experiencing is gone. She is just waiting on the test from the mass on her neck. She is filled with peace and hope and all of this other good news continues that hope that everything will be ok. This was great news and I felt it appropriate to write about. We hear all these bad things all the time with the economy and life that I wanted to share something uplifting and positive.

Happy Easter and Passover!

Joy

12 Mar

Joy, what a simple word. It is powerful though. In these tough times no matter what you are facing, I want to encourage you to hold on to your faith and have joy. Things may be at there worst but something about staying positive and having faith and joy can actually help pull you out of the situation. The joy of the Lord is my strength. It can give you strength to have that joy. Hang on and stay strong during these uncertain times. Everything just seems so negative so turn off the news and turn to God. Hold on! I just want to encourage you with some positive news and help build your faith.

Whether you have experienced a job loss, a bad marriage, battling an illness, or whatever you are going through, hold on to your faith in God and hold on the joy that is deep within you. My husband and I have faced many, many trials in our almost 8 years of marriage and 13 years of being together but the one constant that got us through was having faith in the midst of the storm and trying to find something positive in all of it. You will come out of whatever situation you are in.

HOLD ON and DON”T GIVE UP!!
