Happy Birthday Mom

Happy Birthday to my wonderful Mother!  She is always there when I call and need her to listen.  I pray that she has a fabulous birthday!


Mom babies on couch


I have absolutely no idea how she did it with triplets.  And look at Schultz, he was looking at the camera asking, “please make it stop.”



And one from Easter this year.

Yay For Fridays! Bible Verse Edition

I decided instead of picking a bunch of random things I was going to share my favorite, go-to Bible verses.  My problem is I have so many more favorites than 5.  I am sticking to 5 but it was hard!
1- Philippians 4:6- “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
One of my all time favorite verses.  I tend to have a worry problem and I know that is against scripture.  So I mediate on the worry verses quite often to help me remember what God’s promises are and what He says about the issue.  I also love 1 Peter 5:7-”Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 

2- Colossians 3:17-Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”


3- 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18- “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
I try to keep this as my life verse.  It is so hard to remain happy and joyful in hard circumstances but this verse says it all, it is God’s will for us in Jesus and I need to do it.  I also think when we try to focus on being joyful no matter what the circumstances the light of Jesus can shine from even the darkest days and we can help lots of people that way.

4- Lamentations 3:22-23-Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
I love this verse.  No matter how much we feel we failed the day before, how much we think we screwed up, every day is a new day.  It is a fresh start and we don’t have to let yesterday affect today.  

5- Isaiah 40:31-But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Another one of my life verses.  God’s time isn’t our time and while it is a hard reminder He has it all figured out.

Verse of the Moment

I have a chalkboard in my kitchen where I write the “Verse of the Moment.”  I change it when I feel fit and it is normally a verse that has really spoken to me recently or one I am focusing and working on.  It can be one of my favorites, one I find etc.  I thought I would start to share them with you occasionally as I change my board.

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”

– Colossians 2:6-7
