Life

Each step of life is a journey that you choose to walk.

Each moment of life is another line, sentence, paragraph and chapter of the book called your life.

Enjoy all that life has to offer, good friends, good food, good coffee and as always wisdom and a good laugh.

Thankful thoughts



As Valentine's Day approaches my heart seems to be overwhelmed by all the people that are in my life. One of my friends on Facebook is posting everyday what she loves about her husband. I love reading her daily posts. It dawned on me this morning that I need to tell my husband how much I love him each day. God has given me the perfect help mate, and I fail to tell him that enough. I am so thankful.



God is wonderful! It has taken me many years to realize when He is speaking to me, but it is getting easier. A few years back my marriage was really struggling. As I prayed for guidance and answers, God began to work on me! In His great wisdom, God has taken our path and put it on a course of success. Right now we are in a series on marriage, and I am in a counseling group to help me to heal in an area of my life that has been untouched for years. I am so thankful.



It has also come to my attention that it's not too late. It's never too late to heal and grow. After all this is a journey. I have shared a portion of my journey with many people, some for a short period of time others it will be lifetime, and I am just overwhelmed by the grace and love that my friends have given. They loved me when I was unlovable, hung out with me when I said I didn't want the company, and those always timely phone calls, emails and letters when I least expect them just to say "I'm thinking of you". I am so thankful.



My greatest blessing, my children. Sometimes they get the worst of me, but they have the best of me. When I look into their eyes I see just how much God's love is poured out. Not just to me, but to everyone. How can you not see God when you look at your children. For someone who was not suppose to be able to have kids (love when doctors tell you that), to now have 3 very fast growing kids, nothing amazes me more than they do. I am so thankful.



One of my greatest joys. My work. To be where I am right now in life is far beyond what I thought I would ever do. I love working in music, in radio, in ministry. God truly uses the unworthy to further His Kingdom. There are many days that I think I should pinch myself to wake up from this dream. I have been reminded, a lot, over the past few weeks that I am not to look at who I was, but who I am and who I am becoming through Christ Jesus. I am so thankful.
