"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”- William Butler Yeats

a bushel of blessings

I have so very much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving Day, starting with my Savior, whom I would be nothing without. I thank Him for my beautiful family, for my friends, for us being able to have food on our table every day, a warm bed to sleep in every night, and for being able to live in a country where I am free to worship my God publicly and free to speak my mind. We are thankful for our military and their families, especially those in harms way, that sacrifice so much to allow us those freedoms. May God bless you and keep you safe.

To my friends that come on here to check on me, even when I spend days without writing, I wish every one of you and your families a very blessed Thanksgiving.

he walked in


Twelve years ago today, he walked into my life, (actually "typed" into my life since we met online) and forever changed it. He has since become one of my greatest blessings. Ever.

On that late night in November, never did I expect the stranger I had just met to not only become my husband and prove to me that soul mates really do exist, but not in my wildest dreams did I ever think that God would use him so powerfully to bring me back to my Savior.

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that we would not only add one, nor two, but three precious children to our newly blended family.

Never did I think I would become the happiest woman in the world by saying "I do" to this stranger.

Never did I think he could wipe my tears away and make me laugh hysterically in the midst of a pain and sadness.

Never did I think I would find myself standing in awe of him as I watch him fulfill his role as an amazing father, playing with our kids and leading them by example.

Never have I felt what love truly is, until I felt it through the eyes of this stranger.

Am I ever glad that I really believe in never saying never!

Happy 12 years together, baby.

I love you with all of my being.
