Me and My Hubby, November 2007
I am a lover of the Lord. The Lord, my friends and family are of most importance to me. My children are pretty much my life these days. My husband, my closest friend. Born in Memphis, TN; raised in Jacksonville, NC from 3-15. Back to Memphis at 15, graduated from Germantown High School in 1994. Years later went to college to work towards a degree in journalism, but again, life got in my way with the kids and all and I didn't finish. I went for about 2 plus years I suppose and finished most all of my basic courses. Sometimes I want to go back and finish, other times I don't know if that is the plan I should follow anymore. I still enjoy creative writing though. I'm not sure I'd make it as a journalist these days in the news world!
Currently, I am happily married and have been for going on 14 years. We have three wonderful children. One girl and two boys.
My husband and I try very hard to stay youthful at heart, playing games with our children and doing other activities with them to keep life fun and interesting. When things get tough we encourage our friends and family to try to just laugh. Many times we are faced with things in life that truly tug on our heart, but our faith in Christ which can bring about joy and laughter can do amazing things. I've been known to laugh during a funeral! Perhaps it is my coping mechanism or perhaps I understand that simple songs of joy and dances of excitement are going on heaven when a person is taken to heaven. So I laugh little!
We are extremely involved in our church and try very hard to make an impact on our community to let them know that they are loved by our Creator. I am in no way judgmental to others as I understand that Jesus wouldn't be that way. Though it is difficult in today's world, I must press on to love on everyone. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.
My mind likes to keep me busy as it seems to rotate unique ideas, get overly anxious at times and leaves me often feeling uneasy and unsatisfied. Writing or journaling has been something I've enjoyed since I was a very young girl and it somehow seems make me more content. In my twenties, I've coupled my passion for writing with a passion for photography. I am always searching for something new and exciting to occupy my mind with. I pray often for comfort and peace for my unsteady mind and heart and am learning each day to rely more on God. He has always been there for me and has never ever failed me. Sharing what God has done in my life through my writing, photography and personal testimonials is something I feel God desires for me to do.
By the way, I love the beach, ocean views, lighthouses, sand and waves, warm weather with sea gulls...
I'd like to lose weight which should increase the amount of energy I have and enable me to keep up with my kids and do more exciting things as the Lord would guide me to do.
I have joined a fitness club, but I don't like to go! I want to try to excercise at least 4 times a week, but I often over exercise several days and weeks in a row and then stop for a week or more. I'm afraid to miss a dy because the one missed day spreads into weeks missed. My favorite type of exercise is running! I love to see things pass me by, Gods beautiful creations while listening to my IPOD.
I can do all things in Christ Jesus my Lord. We can accomplish the daunting task of losing weight while joyfully living under Christ.
Stopping by to say hi.
