Nothing Can Prepare You for Losing a Loved One

Even though you know death is approaching, nothing ever can prepare you for when it comes. I am thankful for the peace and love of God during these times.

On August 7, we lost a great matriarch of our family, Verna Lee Edwards, my granny. I have always known that I come from a strong line of women, and these past two weeks have proven it to me in an even greater way. If you read Proverbs 31:10-31, you will see a glimpse of what kind of woman my granny was like. She was all of that, and so much more to me. There is nothing I could write that could describe how I am feeling right now, and how much she will be missed by all of us. It gives me great comfort knowing that she is gazing upon the beauty of the Lord right now and feeling no pain, and enjoying her eternal life with Papa, in the Kingdom of God.

You have left a great legacy in our family, Granny. I can hear our Father say, "Well done, good and faithful servant," as He places a crown upon your head. I love you forever and always.

"God has you in His arms, I have you in my heart."

Unanswered Questions

This morning as I lay in bed trying so hard to go back to sleep, (because I know I need it) all I could feel was the pain in my stomach. All I could see in my mind was a big ball of yarn in multiple colors that was knotted together with no end, and no beginning. These knots represent so many questions that are going through my mind right now. Continue reading

Waiting Feels So Wrong

I often do not know how to start out any post I write, and this one is no different. Well, actually, it is different. It is different because it is about my granny. My grandmother, or "granny," as we call her, has been given days to live Continue reading

I Know The Best Filter

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it at least 100 times…”If I could figure out how to put this beauty filter from Snapchat on my face when I go out, I would do it in a heartbeat!”   I can just imagine walking in the mall or somewhere with this huge phone in front of my face and only letting people see me through the lens of whatever filter I chose for the day.  I have to say, I do enjoy playing with those silly filters and creating stories on Snapchat. I think it’s fun!

One day I was looking to see what new filters came out, and I heard a still small voice speak to me, “All anyone needs is My filter, the blood of Jesus.”  To say that it resonated within my spirit would be an understatement.  All of a sudden, Continue reading

Connector Trails

Yesterday I went mountain biking and I made a big mistake!  Now that the park is closing earlier, we were not able to park where we sometimes do at the trail head.  We only had an hour to ride, so we decided to park at the bottom and take the connector trail up to the main trails that we wanted to ride.

A Couples’ Ride

My husband emailed me this video today and I laughed practically the whole time while I watched it.   Why?  Because it reminded me so much of our earlier rides together when I was just learning.  Don’t get me wrong, I am still learning, but I have come a long way from last year.  Whoever made the video reversed the roles.  Probably to keep a lot of arguments from breaking out with couples.  LOL

 

 

 

 

 

Trying To Find Balance

I’m still trying to figure out how to do everything that I feel I need to do, and want to do during this part of my journey in life. Do you ever wonder how everyone seems to have it together, but you? I see people posting on Instagram and Facebook everything they do, and it makes me feel a little frustrated. How do they do it all???? Continue reading
