Such truth...

It's been a while since I have written a post that was heavy on my heart. I love posting the daily life we live, the small things that we might someday forget, the little pictures that don't go to "big" events in a scrapbook so they are never printed, etc. but sometimes I have a heavy heart. Sometimes the Lord just calls me to that's what I am going to do today.

This summer has been a summer of so much growth for me personally. I have taken a step back from so many situations. I have watched so many little "things" happen. I have been shown true love...and because of that I think I have become better at giving true love.

If you have been reading for any period of time you will remember I attended a women's conf. in March. It was perfect timing, God always knows, right?!!?!? I was shown so many things those 2 days.

Personally I have learned I am not the same person I used to be. Period. That's all. Just like everyone else I know change has happened in our daily life. We all deal with things differently. Some run, some hide, some like to act like it didn't hurt them...

I think for so long I was searching for "old" self. It wasn't until the Lord showed me I have changed...he has changed me. He made me who I am. God continues to mold me into what he wants me to become, as long as I allow him. The hard part of this (for me personally) is the "change" part. Being an honest human priorities, my outlook, the way I love, my needs, all change.

After realizing this about myself I began to reflect. Then one day I woke and thought...wait, if I am not the same person neither is Mark. ;) Hmmmm....I haven't actually sat down and read blog posts all summer. Funny the first one I would come across would be THIS ONE posted over at scissortail SILK.

Please take a second and read...

Think about her words, she says this better than I ever could. Maybe this describes you with a friend, husband, family member?!!? Just pray about it...


  1. I needed this so much! Going through a difficult time in my marriage & not sure we know how the "change" together! Breaks my heart...

  2. You have no idea how perfect the timing of this post coming into my life is! I married "young" (21 and 22) and I sometimes struggle with the fact that my husband and I are so different from the driven, optimistic, idealists we used to be. Growing together can be hard but is so worth it. Thank you so much for sharing your heart! I needed a reminder of how blessed I am to have a husband who has grown with me and loved me unconditionally :)


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
