I've been quiet lately. We have been really ill this week, thanks to a bout of Norovirus making its way through our elementary school. While I am never thankful for illness, I can certainly be thankful for the reminder to slow down, appreciate my health, and love on those most important to me.
Healing: Takes Time...Time: Is A Gift!
. #flashbackfriday 2010 4th baby. Our marriage was rocky at best. Remembering this day usually brings up old hurts, fear, sadness, and regret. Today however I saw this picture in a new light. I was given a gift of healing in THIS present moment to heal that moment in the past. Someday I will tell the whole story, some find it funny, some find it appalling. Either way its a piece of me and a peice that time has finally healed, Christ has healed this part. I can look at these people and feel love for who they were and compassion as I know the whole story and where we are now. (@thisisdutcher) I guess the lesson for me is that healing doesn't happen right when we want it to or when we are overwhelmed by the pain and want to be done with it. There isnt' a chart that says ok this person can now be healed of this or that pain. It's in His hands His time. IT'S His gift to give. The only thing I can testify of is this. When l rely on Him I am in His rest and I'm available for when He wants give this gift. Keep going, get up everyday, and when you get knocked down or fail, cry it out and then get back up again. Whatever your struggle, lay it all out there.Then wait on Him for he will bless you!! In His Time. #patience#thankful#sevenyearsofhealing#momenttomoment#nothealedinaday#timeheals#Godgirl#marriage#remarriage#perfectlyimperfect#lifecoach#giftsfromGod#lovemyfamily#dutch7
I will never get tired of posting these pictures. For me this isn't a fad or seeking attention. I am proud that this has become my lifestyle. I don't just look better, I feel so much better everyday. Working out makes my bad days easier and my good days the best. Everyday I see something new in myself and I am loving it! I love myself and I want to inspire everyone around me to love themselves too. I wouldn't be where I am today without the support of my family and my gym fam. I am so thankful to be given the opportunities I have received! 🙏🏻💥💪🏻 #fitmom#fitlife#lovemyself#thankful#gymfam#anytimefitnessgtown#onlyupfromhere
