But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior;
             my God will hear me.

This is my grandpuppy A.J.  Recently I got to puppysit while his mommy and daddy went to their premarital counseling.

He sits at the door eagerly waiting on his people to come back.  I try to get him to play and he will for a little while, but he knows that they will return for him and he anxiously waits by the door so he won't miss them.

He made me think about waiting on the Lord.  Am I eagerly waiting to hear from Him, eager to see what He has for me each day?  Am I watching in hope, knowing that He will hear me?

Life is Good,

Happy Mother's Day

On this Mother's Day, I am so thankful for my precious Mother.  She was a beautiful example of what a godly Mother should be.  She is a prayer warrior and I remember her studying her Bible daily.  Thank you Mom, for taking care of me, and loving me always, especially those times that I am hard to love.  Thank you for being a wonderful role model and giving me the tools I needed to become a mother myself.

                                           My mother,  my daughter and me

And thank you to the loves of my life.   Life with you has never been dull,  motherhood was a wonderful adventure.  You've made life interesting and have kept me on my toes.  You are fun and funny and I am blessed to be your mother.  I love you both so much.

Life is Good,

So Long, Insecurity

On April 24th, my friends Leah, Kristen and I joined about 10,000 other ladies at First Baptist Church in Woodstock, GA and 300,000 worldwide to hear Beth Moore speak on her book So Long, Insecurity. Yes, I am slow but it has taken me this long to process everything. It was wonderful day of worship and fellowship with old friends and new. I am ready to say goodbye forever to my insecurities. They have taken up too much space in my life

Here are some of the points of the day: A Secure Woman is:

  1. Saved from herself (Insecurity is a twisted from of self-interest)
  2. Entitled to truth (The more we live withdrawn, the darker our thinking becomes)
  3. Clothed with intention (We can't be weak willed women)
  4. Upended by grace (Grace is the only thing that we can give away that we can also keep)
  5. Rebounded by love (We are loved by God regardless of our pasts)
  6. Exceptional in life

We traveled to Atlanta the day before the event for some girl time. I hadn't seen Kristen for several months and there was a lot of catching up to do. Kristen had never been to Phipps Plaza and so we decided that it would be a good place to get a bite to eat and do a little shopping.

We then met a group of Siestas at Pappasito's for dinner. I knew a few of these women through their blogs but hadn't met them in person. It was a great time with about 30 ladies. And the Mariachi Band!

Karen, Leah and Abby


Lora and me. I was so excited to meet her. I feel like I have known her forever. I also met Yolanda and Georgia Jan, but failed to get a picture of them. I was so excited it's a wonder I got any pictures at all!

And no Mexican dinner is complete without a Mariachi Band!
