Man eyes

Oh my goodness!! You all know how much I adore my hot husband, I am blessed beyond measure by his love. The last week or so, he has really had a hard time finding things. Okay, maybe the last 5 years! So I have started asking him "well, are you using man eyes?!" because every time he can't find something I will walk in and it is literally right in front of him! I do love my husband! 

This morning I was praying and whining to God about some
Things and He said "you sweet child are looking through man eyes..." I am so thankful He sees everything even when I can't.

The other night, I was trying to get Claire back to sleep. This is very common, as neither of my sweet girls sleep through the night. We were on the couch... I thought she was asleep so I eased myself up. She moved, so I paused laying half way on the couch and half on the floor! Can I get an "amen" from all of you, that have found yourselves in the most uncomfortable positions...doing everything to keep your babies asleep?!

Well she woke up and said "momma, lay with me" to which I replied "I am" still half on the floor. She said "momma , laaaayyyyyy with me!" she knew I wasn't fully on the couch. She knew I was already trying to get back in my bed. As I got all snuggled up on the couch with Claire snuggled sweetly next to me, I thought about how often I am just halfway living my life for Christ. And if I think He doesn't notice, I am so wrong. He wants it all. No half way. Everything. And why wouldn't I give Him that, He gave His all for me?

Good morning friends...

My friend sent me a text this morning to tell me to look at the sunrise. I am sure it was beautiful, but I didn't look. I chose not to see it. The last 9 days my heart has been overwhelmed with a shadow. What's worse is that I am getting comfortable with my shadow.vi have fallen so far that I am not sure where to go now. I know Gods truth, but to let go of the fear my mind is holding is paralyzing. This is as transparent as I know how to be. And I am sharing because I know someone out there is avoiding today's sunrise. What I found this morning is that by ignoring the sunrise, I am avoiding the Risen Son in my life....so I will ask Jesus to come today and remove this shadow from my heart...and yours

Can't wait

This morning I was talking to Claire. I told her "daddy doesn't have a game today!" her reply, "I can't wait for today!"  sometimes she says things without knowing the meaning...sometimes like today I think she knows exactly what she is talking about!

Today, our Father is waiting for us. He has nothing else to do but listen to you. Get excited about being in His presence. Wake up thinking "I can't wait for today!"

The hold

The other night, I was trying to get Claire to sleep. She was fighting me, big. She was so exhausted that she couldn't go to sleep. Finally I had to activate the "mom hold" you know the one. I got her snuggled close to me and made her be still while I walked and rocked. She was asleep in about 5 minutes.

Yesterday, God got me in a hold. He forced me to be still. "I will make you like down in green pastures..." when I see this verse I often miss the fact that if we choose to ignore His invitation for rest in Him, He will make us rest. Stop avoiding rest today. Run toward His invitation to fall apart in His arms....it's a sweet sweet place to be

I'm your girl

Last night John was getting Claire near to sleep. I heard them talking so I listened in! Claire said "I'm your girl daddy!" ohhhhh melt my heart! 

As I was getting ready his morning I thought how wonderful it would be if those were my words to My Father. I'm your girl Lord. Whatever You ask of me, yes Im your girl. Your will Lord, I am your girl. Wherever You lead, your girl will follow.

See you

Last night we were walking to the car. It was already dark. I had Lily's hand but she was afraid. She said "I can't see you." I squeezed her hand and reminded her of my presence. Again she said "momma I can't see you....it wouldnt be scared if I could..." it just melted my heart.

A thousand times in the last week I have said the same thing to God. Lord I can't see you, I am afraid. He always reassures me and I reply as my daughter did. But if I could see you Lord...

Rest your heart today. He is there. He has your hand and He will not leave you. Rest in faith. Hebrews 11:1
