Christ’s faithfulness



Deuteronomy 11:18-21

“You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. “You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up. “You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates,…
so that your days and the days of your sons may be multiplied on the land which the LORD swore to your fathers to give them, as long as the heavens remain above the earth.


On wings like eagles


But for those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

It’s been a couple of months now since i’ve had the time to post anything. I have two toddlers running around the house with a case of the trouble twos. You can imagine what I have been going through. Nonetheless, all the love and lessons i’ve soaked up in the past couple of weeks have been well worth the chaos.

I suffer from depression and anxiety, and these past few months have been sucking my soul dry. I’ve fallen behind on a ton of things; To name a few: being the best mother I can be, being the good wife my husband deserves (because the Lord blessed me with such a patient, humble and kind man that deserves the best I can offer). Through this struggle I haven’t felt the will to seek God. I know, how horrible does that sound. I just haven’t felt Him close to me at all, it’s caused me to fall behind on prayer. The most important thing in a Christian’s life. Prayer. Everything has just seemed to be going so wrong.

Well my husband (may God bless him even more for being such a sweet man) decided to take us on a trip. Just us and the boys. Away from all the chaos and problems etc. Saturday morning he wakes up a bit earlier than usual. Helps pack things for the boys and to my surprise even got my stuff ready to go. The day was starting off on a good note. Well, once we were there we unpacked and headed off into the big blue. I can’t explain the calm I got from being out at sea with no one and no problems around us, just the big beautiful blue sky the sun, the breeze the water and all the trees (you catch my drift)…

Well watching my boys and husband enjoy that happiness that bliss of being together having one anothers company doing something we all enjoy, well that feeling just slapped my eyes wide open.

I mean how can I describe that feeling? I just know something clicked that instant in my being. I was realizing that I am truly truly blessed and loved beyond measures. I had been given the opportunity to see with spiritual eyes the great glory and kindness and mercy and love that God invests in my life every single day. Through my husband, through my children, through my breathing. I mean it was something many can’t and probably won’t even understand. But I do and that is all that matters. I had hit rock bottom and even with my lack of seeking the Lord He had such great compassion and mercy on my life, that with love He showed me He was still there. With love He put the need of having to take a trip in my husband’s heart guiding him to lead us where I had to be. So that with love He could make me feel His presence again and be filled with His Holy Spirit… with such great love and compassion. How great is our God? Honestly, how great is our God?

Nothing on earth, or the heavens, nor under the waters, is there anything nor will there be anything or anyone greater than He. I am thankful and I am humbled. Blessed be the Lord Almighty whom has had such great mercy and love for me since the moment He knew I would exsist. I know He will perfect His work on me.20161226_130718.jpg                        Romans 8:28

“And we know that all things work together for the good of them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.”

Blessed & Thankful

I used to worry that i’d need a daughter in order to have the kind of relationship I wish I had with my mom a “you-can-tell-me-anything” closeness, which I would have cherished so much. But today during our little family time, I realized with a start: I have that with these boys.


Though my father and mother forsake me,
    the Lord will receive me.

Psalm 27:10

God is our joy and our triumph.

 The name of Jesus, when we can speak of Him as ours, is balm for every wound, a cordial for every care. It is as ointment poured forth, shedding fragrance through the whole soul. In the hope of a heavenly crown, let us sit loose to earthly possessions and comforts, and cheerfully bear up strength at His feet. Yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry; and where he is, we shall be also.


  But let there be spaces in your togetherness    and let the winds of the heavens dance        between you. Love one another but make  not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving         sea between the shores of your souls.

Shoulder to shoulder


“Even the biggest of boulders cannot knock down two brothers standing shoulder to shoulder.” -unknown 

As time goes by & I observe these two, I notice how much love they have for each other. I notice how close they are becoming. I absolutely love it!


I mean ever since Ehzrah found out he was going to become a brother all he would do was play with my tummy. I remember he’d be feeding sometimes when all of a sudden he’d come up to me and lift up my shirt and try to feed his baby brother “ziah” by shubbing food down my belly button. Yeah, I thought it was the cutest thing ever. There were times at night he would turn over (after dada had laid him to sleep) and he’d hug my belly and kiss it good night then later give it a kiss in the morning. These moments made my heart melt.

Growing up my husband & I don’t remember having that type of bond with any of our siblings. So it really warms our hearts and makes us really appreciate & be thankful for what God has given us. This is why Rich and I make it the number one rule in our home to always love one another like God loves each and every one of us. I can practically guarantee you that the more you say “I love you” to your child, the more your child will say “I love you” back. The more hugs and kisses you give, the more your home will be filled with love and affection. And when your children feel free to express their love to you and others, you’ll know you’ve instilled in them perhaps the greatest value of all.

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

John 13:34
