Back in the groooove

Hello Strangers! =)
I know you all have missed me. (ha)
I took a break for a bit to focus on some other things and now that I have gotten in the grove I'm going to attempt to add blogging back to my list.

So what do I write about with my first blog in what...3 months I think?

I have learned alot these past 3 months...alot has been going on in my life and in the lives of my family members. Some tough stuff and some new and amazing stuff.

-I have learned what it means to truly get down on your knees and cry out to God and stay in constant prayer.

-I have learned how precious it is to have that open communication at all times with God.

-I have learned that no matter what goes on in my life, if I keep God fist and do EVERY thing to bring him glory everything else will fall into place and He will pour out his blessings! Nothing compares to the overflowing love of God!

- I have learned that I'm not as naive as some people think I am. Lets face it, some people are just plan CrAzY and thrive on stirring up drama..I have since learned to ignore it and keep on a going and decide to not feed into their joy of  living a drama filled life! I now realize some things never change, and there is a reason why drama seems to follow them. (I'm sure all of us have someone like that in our lives lol)Can I get an AMEN!

-I have learned what it truly means to be there for someone in their darkest moments and seek God for every single word that I say to them.
-I have also learned how angry, mad, revengeful I can and want to be at times. And it is still a constant battle for me to keep my focus on the fact that God sees the bigger picture and WILL uphold the righteous and those that Love him and truly seek him. It is never an easy thing to see someone you love go through something so raw and devastating.

-I have learned to give all my hurts, fears, cares, worries, emotions over to has been a slow process, but one that I strive to do daily.

-I have learned that with GOD all things are possible.... I have learned to not just say that phrase but believe it with all my being.

-I have learned how important my church family is to my family and how amazing they are, they have came together and truly uplifted my family in this time of hurt and heartache. I can NEVER thank them enough for what they are doing!

- I have learned that seeking God is an awesome thing...especially if you allow Him to teach you and change your perspective on things that you thought you couldn't get past. It's amazing what He can do to our lives if we just surrender everything to Him.

-I am blessed beyond measure to have such a loving and supportive Husband. He never ceases to amaze me.

-I have learned we only get one shot in this life to make a difference, so now is the time to start making a difference in peoples lives and showing the love of JESUS! Who know when your last breath could be!

-I have learned to Purpose in my heart EVERY day to keep my focus on God and nothing else, to wake up each morning and ask myself...What can I do to bring God glory today and share His love with someone else?

I could go on in on about What God has been teaching me lately...what is He teaching you? Are you letting the cares and the worries of this life or even just the business of life to overtake you and blur the purpose God has for you?

What joy for those whose strength comes from the LORD,

when they walk through the Valley of Weeping,
it will become a place of refreshing springs.

The autumn rains will clothe it with blessings,
they will continue to grow stronger!

Psalm 84:5 - 7


  1. Welcome back! I DID miss you!

  2. I have missed keeping up with my fav. blogs! yours being one of them =)

  3. Hehe..apparently I wasn't the only one who has to make a come back. ;)

  4. lol I wondered if you were going to notice that!

  5. Hey! I missed you, too! Thanks for sharing this awesome post!

  6. It sounds like your time away has been very productive! God talks to us, but we just have to make a decision to stop and listen.

  7. Just found your blog from a friend that goes to church with you. I am going through a hard time right now and they suggested that I look you up. I enjoyed reading your post today but found it discouraging to hear you call someone crazy. I am struggling right now with an old boyfriend that is telling everyone that I am crazy. I know how bad that hurts. Everything else in your post really uplifted me though.

  8. Hey Shelby, So glad you found my blog =) who from church sent you my way? Sorry that you took me saying someone being crazy as discouraging I don't say that to discourage anyone. But because of the situations my family members and I are going through I can honestly say the situation I'm going through in my life is pretty crazy =) And the people that are causing the pain and hurt are acting very crazy.I'm pretty honest when I blog about my feelings on here...I'm not perfect by no means but this is where I pretty much speak the truth about things that are going on in my life and the feelings I'm feeling... I hate that your old boyfriend is calling you crazy, my prayer is that you will not find your self worth in what he says about you but what God says about you. and that is that you are beautiful and precious in his eyes.

  9. Thank you for responding back to me and clarifying things. I appreciate that. My dad is always telling me I take things to personally and that I am too youong to care what people say about me. I found you through Summer's mom Mrs Hill.

  10. Funny, Angie & Summer have no idea who you are. I think I may have a hunch. And everything still stands the same. You are beautiful and precious in God's eyes and I wish all the lieing would is really all pointless.
