Emerald Isle. Cross Lake. Shreveport, LA.

It is difficult for me to believe that Saturday is going to be the 4th of July. My life is unrecognizable when I attempt to look back twelve months, much less 18 or 24. I still have hope. I still have joy. But so much is so different. I am truly sorry for the things I took for granted, but with each quiet moment I am making peace with permanent losses so I can be prepared for the opportunities that I know lie ahead.


What cause are you fighting for?

Life is short. When I think about all of the energy that people invest into negativity, it just seems more important to me to try harder to help someone else. There are so many people out there who need help and hope.

Cloudy Day Inspiration (Smile).

It’s a cloudy day outside and in my life, but I know the sun is coming back. When I think about all of the love and positive people in my life and how much I’ve been blessed and able to share what I’ve been given with others, I just have to smile. This video is for anybody who may need some inspiration (you have to get past the opening skit, but it’s worth it). Have a great weekend.

The illusion of control.

Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? (Matthew 6:27 NIV)

Sometimes, all I can do is work as hard as I can, hope for the best and be prepared for the worst because I have absolutely no control over the situation. I am thankful that in these situations I can trust in a God Who will always make things work for my best.
