Life is sweeter and has more meaning with you in it. You are a gift in such a special and cherished way. God has blessed my life with your life. You smile fills a room and lifts my spirit. You are the answer to an unspoken prayer and continue to touch everyone you embrace. You have a protective heart and love so completely. Thank you for honoring me with your life. Because of you my life is forever changed, for the better.

Love you L!


My Son

He’s everything I could have dreamed of and more. His spirit fills a room. His smile makes me smile because it is pure and filled with honesty and love. I am thankful for his resillience and his unwavering faith. He’s taught me a lesson in love and for that I can only love him more. He’s my heart, my soul and the blood in my veins. I hope to see him grow into the remarkable, loving and kind man I know he will become. Because of your life I am better than blessed.

Love you E!

Thankful for my trials

There’s no way I can continue the work on this blog without a testimony.  In the middle of setting up my first blog, God delivered me a big surprise and I couldn’t be happier.  Sometimes I am so busy asking, praying, wanting, craving & yearning for something else that I forget about what I already have.  I recently was faced with a trial in my life..literally.  My prayer was simple.  I wanted my life to remain the same, unchanged. 

I’ve worked hard to reach the place that I now live and love.  For me to walk away from this trial with less would mean I would be able to give less and somehow feel less as a result.  This was a high price to pay, especially when so many factors were out of my control.

This is one time when I was certain of God’s answer to my prayer.  I received a written response.  God simply found no reason for a change and took care of everything else.

…thankful for my trials.
