I Regret To Inform You…


That this will be a short post.  My brain is fried, Youth Group has drained every last ounce of energy from me!  I am going for a run to clear my mind and invigorate my body!   Wish me luck!

Before I go…

This weekend really knocked my noggin.  Made me think, asked me all the questions I’d been asking myself, and forced me to answer them.   These retreats always reset my spiritual clock, and put me back on fire.  The trouble is losing that fire.  Here is hoping I don’t anytime soon.  So many things happened this weekend that just confirm who God is, and who I am in him.

I am:

Not in any position to judge others.

In danger of offending some by my choice to follow Christ.  Oh well. Its totally worth it.

Commanded to love others, no matter what, as Christ loves me.  unconditionally.

Not alone.  I do not have to do this all by myself.  I CAN’T do this by myself.  Yeah.  I need help.  And Jesus is my go-to guy.

Loved, 100%, paid for by a sacrifice none can match.

I am a mother of a growing group of sweet kids. We laugh, we cry, and we grow together in Christ. Every day is a new adventure. I love chocolate, sticky kisses, quirky smiles, and funny qoutables my kids come up with. :) Belly giggles, snuggling, and homeschooling round out the list of loves. Not every day is easy, but every day IS a beautiful gift. Our life as a family is slowly changing and growing as a result of a renewed interest in God's Word. His influence has been a slow process of sanctification, and this blog is evidence of it. Past posts, and current posts have changed in tone and goal, and are a testimony of all that has changed in our lives. <3 "Now, All glory to God who is able through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we could ask or think."

  1. Amen Liz, I know what you mean when you loose the ‘high after a retreat. I’ve found that the best way to keep it up is fellowship and being in God’s word as much as possible. I know when we’re busy that is tough though. I regret to inform you (and myself) that it is an on going process. That frustrates me. As always thanks for sharing.

    • Glad to hear I’m not alone! I’m trying my best to keep my nose in the book so to speak. There is nothing like being in a room with a ton of other christians to bolster your faith! the toughie, is keeping it up after you’ve all went your separate ways!
