Growing is painful.  Some days, I feel like I'm figuring it out, some days not so much.  I'm a people pleaser.  I want to be liked, loved.  I feel guilty sometimes.  I try too hard, and maybe I'm being paranoid.  So forgive me, please.  I'm trying not to beat myself up because it does no good.  I want to be the best me, whomever that is.

Some questions

what is your greatest hope?
What makes you smile?
What dream do you have that nobody knows?


Friday five

shorts or pants
Spring or summer
Sweet or Savory
Car or train
New England or New Zealand

Lately savory
New England

In Christ

My heart is full, my heart with peace
For in Christ
I have found everything
A future
A dream

It's all there!
Call him:  John 3:16


one good thing

Name one good thing today?

Five Dinner Guests

I'd have dinner with:
Helen Keller
Theodore Roosevelt
Pope Francis
St. Francis of Assisi

This list encompasses luminaries who have used their God given abilities greatly to impact the world past or present.
Jesus, my Savior needs no explanation, but I'd love to see His Face and Faith in action.


I've seen these on so many blogs, and I like to see and read them.

Skinny Pop isn't so skinny, when you want to eat the entire bag. White cheddar, looking at ya.
I haven't had coffee in a while, and as I write this, I want some.
I love Diet Coke, but it's not mutual with my waistline.

Gut check

I just listened to a song "Grace is Sufficient" by Shane and Shane.  My gut reaction is:  Is God's Grace Sufficient for me.  Sure, Yes, should be my immediate answer.  Often not, it isn't.  I was reading yesterday in Journey magazine on a topic of perfection.  While I sought perfection, I let all the good stuff go, trying to attain something I couldn't.  Do I feel shame?  Sure.  Every time I screw up, it just reinforces my need for the Perfector and Finisher of my Faith.

When a friend told me I was "killing it at life"; I had to smile, for it's not what I feel.  It's beyond flattering and motivating.  But then I think, God, You must be doing something right.

God Bless you all.

I realize that your life is not just your own. Many people have been so important in my life.  I get emotional thinking about it. So thank you!

What I'm learning

People want honesty, bumps and all.
Jesus didn't give me what I wanted, He gives what I need.
Thankfulness comes in all forms.
God Bless,

Monday Grace

It's a new day!
I'm grateful.
Make it a great Monday.

You know you haven't been out of the house when you consider putting on makeup to go the plastic surgeon.

Being at 50% on your IPad before 11am is a bad sign.

Not too good at confessions.



A little nervous.
Prayers please!
Thank you,

Some thoughts

I won't lie, the past few days, have wreaked havoc on my head, but most importantly, my spirit.  Who knew stitches could bring a girl to her knees.
What I've learned: Anyone can brighten your day.
                               Anyone can speak validity into your life.
                             Kindness is King...He is for sure
                               When you're ready to give up, somebody is there to pick you up.
                                I have to be kind to self.                            

P.S.  I still haven't brushed my hair, so if you see me, be kind please.

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
James 5:16
It wasn't my first choice of verse, but it applies so well to what I've asked for in a previous post.
God be with you all.


I'm asking for prayers.  If you would, please pray for me.

friendly reminder

It's amazing how a post, a church sermon can provide a friendly, but subtle reminder.
Have a blessed day!

Thanks, Sheri

honest confession

I don't like to complain, and all is fine, I'm just in a state of not knowing.  If I'm honest, I've put Jesus on the back burner, and I feel it.  I have let comparison and envy into my heart.

Jesus wants me, and I want to want Him genuinely.
