Weekend Snapshots...and on being reminded..

A little lake living a visit to our small county fair,some much wanted & needed girl time filled this mama's cup this weekend!


Girl time with one of my best girlfriend Jess from One Sweet Life 

She adores her grammi

FULL of JOY

Violet joy is 10 months and well almost 11 months in one week can you believe it!! *TEARS**



 This weekend while visiting with my best girlfriend we talked about something that has been on my heart for sometime and that's 
"Gods Promises" and how in lonelier and discouraged moments
in life we loose them..well not really lost but our eyes and heart are blind to them
We easily give into false things
We become stagnant in our faith 
We forget what is truth from our heavenly father, those sweet promises that once lifted us up and pushed us forward to next season or step in or DAY even is forgotten just like that
We can and repeat the discouragements or lack of them around us to ourselves 

I have to be honest and say so much of what we talked about convicted me to ask some tougher questions about myself and what kind of woman i want to grow into this next year..
and in sharing our hearts i felt iron sharpen iron literally so to speak
If your in your in a moment of doubt about what God has planned for your life don't loose HEART! 
In the bible in the book of Habakkuk(so stinking small like 3chapters:)
 there's this awesome answer from God to Habakkuk and it goes like this
"Write down clearly on tablets what I reveal to you, so that it can be read at a glance. Put it in writing, because it is not yet time for it to come true. But the time is coming quickly,and what i show you will come true!
It may SEEM slow in coming, BUT WAIT FOR IT; it will certainly take place, and it will not be delayed.-chapter 2 Habakkuk

This little story was pressed against my heart last week in the mist of deep discouragement and then i found it highlighted and dated even from 2years ago!! Yep it was definitely a lift to my heart and a reminder of how i have to keep guarding my heart from joy stealer's and take captive every thought..
Happy Monday friends and God Bless you!!!
with much love, this girls journey
