Have you been hurt by a parent?
Is your relationship with them unhealthy or toxic?
Has it made you confused and angry?
Do you need healing?
Have you been looking for an easy way to cook for your large family?
I have been wanting a Blackstone forever and then earlier this year the whole family surprised me with one and we have been using it ALL summer long.
If you already have one, then you know what I am talking about. The taste can't be beat in our regular kitchen and it is our large family's best friend!
"The wise of heart is called discerning and
sweetness of speech increases persuasiveness."
The Lord has been putting this on my heart lately.
I know that there is no one perfect out there when it come to their tongue.
We can use it for building up or for tearing down.
Words have the power of life and death.
Do you remember where you were on September 11?
I know I do. A friend called me at home in the morning and told me to turn the TV on. I gathered up my littles and went down in the family room and flipped it on and could not believe my eyes. I quickly called my husband who was at work. We saw the second plane hit much to our horror. We were in utter disbelief to see what happened next with the towers full of helpless people collapsing down unto the city below.
This past week and year has brought many to feel upset, angry, and anxious about what is going on here in our country and around the world.
Do you have a child that is planning to go to college?
We just had our second oldest son leave for college last week and is desiring to major in criminal justice. He is also excited about playing football there as well! We miss him but it is definitely a "happy" sad.
Every few months or so I try to share what we have been doing here on the home front.
Earlier this year we updated our upstairs bathroom--it was so fun and I *love* it!
I wanted to share a bit of what we did--hopefully it will inspire you to improve something in your home. Even if it is a small thing--it makes all the difference.
I have been going slowly around the house trying to update each room bit by bit, and am so glad we were able to do this one!
We painted it mostly white with some black accents like the cabinets, vanity mirror, and shelf.
I bought two different shower curtains. Mainly because the one I really wanted was going too take long (and I needed one right away) to get here so I settled for just getting two.
