A gentle whisper from the LORD...

"Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper." 1 Kings 19:11-12

A Moment to Confess

If I were truly honest with you, I would tell you...

Even if my house was clean and neat the last time you were here, most days it's not.

I drink too much coffee.

I still get scared in the dark.

I'm 35 years old and still love the color pink. 

I have to pray every night that the Lord will help me get up in the morning...I'm not a morning person!

I'm extremely self-conscious around people.

Today, I was not a sweet mama to my children. 
I posted about Christ serving...it was meant for me more than for you...I forget sometimes my main job is to serve my children.

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast."
(Ephesians 2:8-9, NIV)


  1. I confess...that if I had to move my fridge, washer and dryer or oven while you were here you may never come back or eat anything i make. That I, too, yelled at my kids. That I posted about honoring your parents so that I would remember why I must teach this and model it.

  2. We are so much alike...guess that's why I like you so much :) You are definitely NOT alone!
