I love this verse...

I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me, so that they will never turn away from me.
 I will rejoice in doing them good.....
 and will assuredly plant them in this land with all my heart and soul.
Jeremiah 32:40-41

We loved our trip to Florida! We watched every sunset and played in the ocean for hours. We collected seashells and ate the most delicious pizza ever! I am so happy we went.

"For He chose us in Him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and blameless in His sight."

I Never Knew....

I never knew exactly how my life would turn out. I had ideas of what I wanted my life to look like but sometimes it looked fuzzy. I didn't become a believer in Jesus Christ until I was 16 years old. I remember going through insomnia, and depression before I got saved. I remember holding my mom's hand in our living room trying to explain my deep longing for peace. Looking back, I can now see the spiritual battle that took place around me...the battle for my soul. During that time I felt alone, confused, and I didn't have any hope to feel myself again. Jesus came into my life like a warrior...changing my heart and my life. He became my King. I am so grateful God pursued me over and over. He was patient with me.

As I sat in church on Sunday morning I began to tear up because I never knew. I never knew the beauty He would make of the mess I was in. I never knew I would have an awesome husband, with awesome friends, and a life I would deeply love. I never knew the places He would take me, or the trials He would entrust to me.

I never knew...how amazing this relationship with God would be.

He is good and we can trust Him.

Love to you,

The Game

My dog is super smart. Sometimes I think he is smarter than me. When I am cleaning the house, he likes to play a sneaking game with me. It goes something like this: I clean, move things around etc and I usually always find his toys and place them in the laundry room. I leave the room and when I am gone he goes into the laundry room, get the toys and throws them back on the floor. He may look innocent in the picture above...but I tell you, he is not! Those toys in the picture above were just put away. :) The funniest thing is that he waits until I leave the room to make his move. I love you zeekers!

Sunday Night Smoothie

Usually on Sunday nights, if I haven't been to the store yet...I am looking all over for some healthy food but we are usually all out. So, I use all my slick tricks and create a smoothie from my own imagination. I just look for what I have left and put it altogether. Final product: Crazy delicious!

Sunday Night Smoothie

A cup or two of left over pineapple
One last cup of strawberry yogurt
One cup of coconut milk
A few shakes of wheat germ and flax seed mill
One frozen banana
One cup of frozen strawberries

Blend as desired

Side Note: Before you think about throwing out your old bananas at the end of the week, you should peel and freeze them. They make smoothies rich and creamy and you don't waste anything, which is a bonus!

Just give it to HIM

Sitting in church tonight, I was encouraged by the fellowship and prayer. We were encouraged at the end of the prayer meeting to take our desires and needs and to GIVE them to the Lord. God has consistently reminded me of that fact...that He is in control. He knows our steps and our story. I was also encouraged by this post today: http://blog.dayspring.com/, please take a second and read over it. You will be blessed! HE knows your story!!!
