You Can Rest

Let my soul be at rest again, for the Lord has been good to me. - Psalm 116:7

It always comes back to this. When bouts of anxiety creep in, or fears of an unknown future try to take up residence in your mind, just remind yourself of His faithfulness.

He has been good, and you can rest.

When things don’t work out as you imagined, or people don’t behave in the manner you expected, just remember His infinite love for you.

He has been good, and you can rest.

If life feels as if it’s at a standstill, and you just can’t see past the hand in front of your face, reminisce on how far you’ve already come by His grace.

He has been good, and you can rest.

My life has been filled with questions... I’ve faced my share of fears, rejections, hurts, and disappointments. And if I chose to focus on them, geez.

But, what about the joys? Obstacles overcome? Pleasant surprises? Strangers that perfectly fill voids in my life? Gifts that come straight from above?

I want to think on THOSE things! He’s proven faithfulness, love, grace, and impeccable timing over and over!

And when I remember that... no matter how dark or long the night... I feel peace. I get to rest.

Sharing Life with You

Thank you for a life full of adventures!

Feeling a little emotional today thinking of my marriage to this guy! Just overwhelmed with gratefulness that I get to share my life with him.

I don’t like to give credit to hard situations and tough times, so I rarely talk about them... but, nonetheless, we’ve faced our share of them. Life hasn’t always been fair. People haven’t always been kind.

We still have questions without answers, confusion about patterns we see, and hearts full of dreams still not fulfilled.

But!!! We have each other. We have a strong faith. We have God on our side. We have the most incredible friends! There’s a long list of things we’ve overcome, learned, and changed.

And... we have FUN!

I’m just feeling the gratitude today a little more than usual, so I wanted to give a shoutout to the love and joy of my life!

2020 has slowed the fun down just a bit, but we’ve made it work! And there’s a lot more to come! Can’t wait to see the rest of our life unfold

Be Brave Enough to be Who You Are

Be a kind human.

To others. To yourself.

Do you know you’re incredible? Loved? Perfectly imperfect? Beautifully unique? Wonderfully complex?

Do you understand that you’re truly one of a kind? Able to accomplish things no other soul could?

Do you allow yourself to belly laugh? To dance like a maniac? To walk into a room humbly confident? To play the game you’re not so good at? To wear those bold colors you love so much even if you don’t think it’s “you?”

Friend... DO the things!

Life is too short to be anything but happily pursuing what you’re called to do!

Don’t let anyone hold you back...
Especially yourself!
Embrace your quirks. Acknowledge your strengths. Perfect your weaknesses. Make your moves!

Be brave enough to be who you are.

To wear the crazy prints, get that rocking haircut, schedule that tat appointment…

Are you? Have you? Will you?

Finding myself in my 30s has been the best ever. Seriously. It’s come with lots of emotion, but walls have been busted and I have room to dance like the crazy person I am.

I hope you’ve learned to love yourself for all the strengths and talents you possess and in spite of those things you’re working on.

We hear it all the time, but it’s worth repeating. Life is short, so live it… and live it well!
