After my plea to you all for prayers last week, I must rejoice. Our prayers are being answered. While my lifestyle changes will not happen overnight (or they haven’t yet), my hope has been restored. I have a renewed sense of faith in the fact that I can do anything through Christ.

It may take time and practice. I may not change old habits overnight, but I will make strides. Little by little, with baby steps, I’ll find God leading me down the path to a healthy life.

I want to thank all of you for your prayers and suggestions. You all are wonderful friends and I feel truly blessed to know each of you. God brings people into our lives for a reason…and He has used each of you to touch my life, and I am humbled at that thought.

So on this beautiful Wednesday, I will not complain about my messy home, or the whole in the ceiling that is leaking, or my mounting inbox, or backed up reviews, or the homeschooling that needs to get done, or anything else in my life today. I am grateful for all of it. They are tests of faith (and patience) and I will choose to be proactive, with the Lord’s guidance, and all my day will fall in line to glorify Him.


  1. Beautifully said! :) I read something recently that made me think: "Right now, our lives are pushed along like a twig in a river. We sometimes feel out of control, with no room for choices, only responsibilities. Yet if we take a moment to still our minds, we can maintain a connection with God. In muddy water, if it is still, the dirt will fall to the bottom and the water will become clear."

  2. So glad to hear you're feeling better! <3

    And I agree--though sometimes we can become so bogged down with responsibility and hardship (and that it IS okay to admit it), it is nice to be able to see them as things to be thankful for.

    I wanted to tell you also, totally stricken by your profile picture. Beautiful!

  3. Annie- That's an awesome saying! Thank you for sharing that.

    Lisa- The pic is probably the only one I like of myself. lol... Thank you for the compliment.
