My Past Was Made Clean By My King

I stumbled across this amazing and soul changing art work earlier this week on Pinterest. During the week I was having deep thought about how far Jesus has already brought me. I found myself teary eyed one day while I was on my lunch break after thinking about the goodness of God. How the God we serve is such a forgiving, uplifting, and loving God.

All I can honestly say is, "Well, whenever God knows we are ready." At this point in my life, God knows that I am not ready to become a mother nor is my husband ready to be a father. However, I love envisioning having my own family with my husband in my daydreams.

Be Thankful For Your Struggle Because...

The month of July isn't even over as of today. So much has happened in these past two weeks that it has been mind blowing. The day that I started my job my husband lost his. Yes, God moves in mysterious ways. (I will touch on this more.) I am now in my second week of being at my new job.

I asked as I pursed my lips together and positioned my scanner to start ringing up items....
