Back to Light

Hello friends, As you all have figured out by now; I decided to take the summer off writing articles weekly. With everything that has been on going, (I.e. summer activities, family time, the quickness of the season); It’s been hard… Read More ›

Fatherly Love

Those of you who know me, know I grew up without a dad. My mother had also grown up without a dad. Even though my mother and grandmother were both married when they had their youngest baby, that did not change the outcome of how things turned out.

Guidance Wins

I still struggle with a lot of things. I am still human too. No, I have never been perfect and I will strive to always be better. The only thing that helps me through every day, is asking God to guide my ways. I can not see what is coming. I do not know what is happening next. He knows which way we should go. He knows the best direction we can take.

Life is Exhausting

Well with this week being the last week of school before summer hits; There is a whole lot going on. I am not “dreading” this summer but I have come to realize it is going to be almost just as exhausting as the school year has been.

Just One Prayer Away!

All of these people around us are walking around blind to the promises we were given. People walking around with so much anger and hatred. Giving all the evil in the world access to their lives. have told you all before there is an enemy in this world who is here ONLY to steal, kill and destroy everything in our lives.

Growing Moment

Oh boy, well it has been over a week since I last wrote an article. Usually I try so hard to not get behind. If I do I usually have something ready. Well this last week I have not been prepared at all. Definitely the busy time of our year. But my goodness, so much going on and not really a whole lot of time to think. Well I know you all hate when I play catch up; Or try to “excuse” myself. Truly I believe there are no real excuses. When something is your job and you slack at it, the only person you are hurting is yourself. Unless you are a care giver or medical provider.

A day to say I Do

We are finally officially getting married. After 9 years of being together we finally have made an official plan to do so. You see we picked a date, a year from now on our original anniversary day we were o be betrothed. With one thing after another I was not sure how that was going to work out. Especially since we have two kids and we are trying are hardest to save up money for at least a down-payment on a house. That is the thing; I had been so caught up in what day we did it. What year it fell on. Where is was going to be. Who was going to be there. What everyone would think or feel about it. The more I thought of everything, the more I sort of overwhelmed the situation. I know I should have just wanted to be married to the man of my life. That is all that should matter. The two of us, becoming one. Officially in the state of Oregon. 😉

Where Are You Now?

I know this may seem like a silly question. But it is a serious one. It is also one we should think about every day. Not where are you physically. Even though it is a valid concern usually for some. But where are we in terms of working on are our inner goals. The areas where we would like to see change. Setting goals is something we have talked on before, but for some of us it did not move much passed there. Am I right?
