Happy Mother’s Day 2016

Happy Mother’s Day, Sweet Friends! We hope all of you have a very blessed day surrounded by your babies, whether they are BIG or SMALL…. because you know they will always be your babies no matter how old they are!

Today I was beyond blessed because I got to spend the day with my sweet HUSBAND (who’s health is continuing to improve daily… YAY!), and my 4 little JEWELS that God so graciously BLESSED me with. They surprised my with a yummy breakfast, coffee, the new shirt that I am wearing today,  handmade Mother’s Day cards, and flowers picked from our garden!Continue reading

What’s In Your Mug Today? FAITH!

What’s In Your Mug Today? FAITH!

Happy Saturday Morning, Friends! This morning I am sitting on my swing with our puppy, Gingerbread, and sipping on my cup of coffee. It was just me and all of the glorious nature that God created. And as I watch the birds singing and squirrels playing without a care in the world, I am reminded that they never have to worry about what they will eat. You see, God takes care of that for them.  In Matthew, it says, ” the the birds do not sow nor reap, yet the Lord feeds them.”

The truth is, God takes care of us the same way… EVEN MORE SO! If He would take care of the birds, why would He not do the same for us? And we are of more value than the birds! The issue is, we do not always allow Him access into our lives to do so. When this happens, we try to desperately stay in control of every aspect of our lives, and we end up doing the exact opposite…. losing control of EVERYTHING! We were not meant to hold such a heavy burden. This is a job designed specifically for God to do that we are trying to do on our own. And when we do not hand this job over to Him, we open the doors for so many other issues to come in.  Like… insecurities, worry, fear, anxiety, depression, etc.. These things will debilitate you! Continue reading

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture “Graduation Day!”

Happy Thursday, Friends! Here are 5 things that you should know about this picture….

1.) These cutie pies are our 3 oldest children. Brice, Sophia, and Colton. Our PRIDE AND JOY! (So is our youngest daughter..pictured here) Today we have spent the majority of our day at our youngest son’s (on the right) graduation and celebration afterwards. We have always given each of our children the option to pick their restaurant of choice to eat at after their graduation, and he chose Mi Patio. Or as he likes to call it…”Meat Patio.” And yes, he is being completely serious about this. Which makes it even more hilarious! Haha! Mi Patio is one of our FAVORITE local restaurants, so I was especially excited about this choice.  Continue reading
