A Sunday Well Spent

17 Jan

I’m a little ashamed that this is the first time I’ve blogged all year. 😛 Hehe!!

This Sunday, I was so inspired by life that I knew I had to compile all my thoughts into this blog.

Almost a year ago, Sunday’s were filled with anxiety, stress, and tears. It was one of my least favorite days of the week. Nowadays, Sunday’s are quite different. A really good different.

Within the last year, my momma started an unspoken tradition of lunch at her house every Sunday after church. Previously we would just go to a restaurant in town, but being in a small town we were very limited with our choices.

It isn’t the food (though it is always delicious!) that makes Sunday lunch so special; it is time with the people I love. We all sit at the dining room table, eat, talk, laugh. It’s perfect.

Our conversations are sometimes filled with tears, sometimes laughter, but always smiles.

After lunch my nieces play and we all lay around and relax.

Sunday morning church fills my soul and Sunday lunch fills my heart (& stomach! 😋)

This time with family is something I so cherish. God is so good and I am so thankful.

Find time to cherish the little things.

A New Season 

21 Jan

A new season has started and I’ve been warring with myself on just what I would say (or write) about it. 

For a long while I’ve been in a season of waiting. I have felt a little lost and unsure about the future. Not knowing what I wanted to do or what my purpose was (is). I’ve spent many sleepless nights praying and feeling unsure about things. My anxiety has been the worst in my whole life and I just didn’t understand when God was going to bring me out of this season.  Or what the purpose of it was for that matter. It had even gotten to the point where I chose to visit my doctor and begin taking anxiety medicine. On a side note, I fully believe that God can (and does) help us through modern medicine. And I’ve learned that it’s nothing to be ashamed of if you do have to take it. I simply chose to keep it to myself and my immediate family. 

Through these uncertainties I’ve come to realize (and appreciate) the constants that I do have in my life.

•My Savior; He remains a constant in my life. I am reminded daily of His grace and His peace. Two things I couldn’t live without.

•My husband; he loves me when I don’t deserve it and accepts me as I am. 

•My family; I couldn’t live without them. 

So here I am on the verge of entering into a new season…and you know what I feel? Nervous. Many may already know this, but Thursday was my last day at my job. I’ve been there three years and I have learned so much. Not just about my position, but about myself, my goals, and my dreams. Leaving a job can be scary. You become comfortable and complacent making any type of change utterly terrifying. As I walked out of the building of my job I felt so many emotions. Excitement about the new opportunity, nervous about the unknown, and hope for the future. But the best emotion of all was a complete peace. That’s how I knew this was the right decision. That is how I knew this was the door God was opening. 

See I spent a long time searching, praying, and waiting for God to open the door. Now that He has, I still don’t know what the future holds, but you know what I do know? The One who holds my future.

So if you are waiting too, don’t give up. God has plans far greater than we could imagine. He wants to give us a beautiful life. He is such a good God. 

Don’t give up.

5 Feb

This has been one of those weeks. A terrible one for sure. It was by the grace of God that I made it to the weekend. 

I’ve been sick every single day, been exhausted beyond belief, and had multiple obstacles to overcome (or trip over). I do believe I’ve come home and cried everyday. Let’s just say, it hasn’t been easy this week. 

So let’s switch gears and let me take a minute to brag. My sweet husband, bless his heart, has had to deal with the hundreds of emotions and tears this week has brought. He has been so good to me (he always is). He has listened, he has given advice, he’s prayed, and he’s been my shoulder to cry on each day. More and more I realize how blessed and thankful I am for this love we have. Thank You Jesus! ❤️ 

He has been the strong one this week. Who am I kidding, he’s always the strong one! But truthfully, I’m so thankful for his loving heart and his patience. 

Also, huge shoutout to the rest of my family. Thank you for listening to me complain and cry each day, and thank you for your words of encouragement. 

Through it all, I cannot give enough thanks and praise to God for carrying me through each day. I realize more every day that I would truly be lost, in every sense of the word, without my Savior. I have cried to Him, praised Him, and even questioned His plans for me; but He still carries me through and He still has such great things in store. Thank You Jesus!!!! ☺️
