//  Can we get honest here for a minute? If I were to ask you what is the ONE thing that trips you up in life, what you say?

I’ve been thinking about this today and I’d have to say that comparing myself to others is my Achilles heel. It knocks me flat every time. Feeling confident and secure until that moment when someone else comes along… someone prettier, happier, skinnier, wealthier, more talented, more popular, more disciplined. You name it.

But it’s usually when I’m tired or feeling run down that this happens.  It happens when I let my guard down.

But isn’t that the nastiness of our enemy? He knows exactly when and where to strike―when we’re weak, and in the point of our weakness. If I was an athlete, I would tape up the sore muscle to keep it from further injury. If I was a soldier, I would protect my vital organs from fatal attack.

So why is it that, as Moms, we don’t anticipate and protect ourselves from what will surely come at us? The enemy ALWAYS attacks those he’s most afraid of.

You are the gateway for atmosphere, easily changing life as we know it

down here on the ground.

When you are at peace and still, I delight in the warmth of the sun on my skin.

Images flood my mind of sun-kissed days gone by,

when heat and warmth would melt away my winter blues   Read more

Post-It Notes!

I love them! Any shape, any size, any colour. Not only are they brilliant for reminding forgetful kids (and husbands) what they need to do today, they are also brilliant for SPEAKING LIFE TO THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN MY HOUSE!
