The pictures in my slide show are ones that I have taken in Tahiti, Ireland, Hawaii, and on 2 different trips to Australia. I love landscape photos and have been blessed to be able to capture photos of some of the most beautiful places in the world. Enjoy!

About Me

Constant thinker and dreamer...just a girl livin for Jesus who wants to make a difference in the world.

You don't have to go it alone...

Well I found out yesterday that instead of coming back to the U.S. from Israel on March 8, we are going to be going to Greece and then finally coming home on March 15th.  I can't believe it!  And I also can't wait.  I can't wait to see the beauty that God has created in this world.  There is so much bad stuff all over the tv and the internet and the news.  Has anyone ever just stopped and said "Wow, look at all the beauty that God has provided for us.  Why are we tearing it apart?"

There is so much potential for love in this world that it is unimagineable.  How is that possible, you ask.  It's because God loves us.  John 3:16 says "For God so loved the world that He gave his begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have ever lasting life."


Jesus died for US!  Not just for me, not just for you, but for everyone!  He sacrificed his own self so that our entire world would not have to pay for our sins.  Jesus paid the price for us.  How can it get any better?
I have a hard enough time trying to figure out my own problems.  Why not just give them to God.  Let him take control of my life.  We don't have to worry, he does the worrying for us.  Can you believe that worrying is actually a sin?  It's because when we worry, we aren't giving it all to God.  He will work it out.  If it's in God's will for our life, He will work it out for us.  If it's not in His will for us, then like flour through a sifter, he will get rid of the impurities for us.  Why should we worry about life's imperfections?  There is someone who will take care of this for us.  He is God.  Do you want God to be your heavenly father or do you want God to be your judge?
When it is my time to leave this earth, I want to be welcomed by God with open arms.  I want him to look at me and say "Welcome home, my child.  Welcome home."

God has gotten me through so many emotions in the past month.  He hears my prayers.  He knows my heart.  He has given me comfort and peace.  I am so thankful that I have not been alone in this time of my life.  He is always with me.

It's time to get on with my life and see what God has in store for me.  I can't keep holding onto "what ifs."  What if those "what ifs" don't ever come around.  Then that is time wasted that could have been spent being productive for God.

I have learned that a woman doesn't become a woman when she turns a certain age, or when she marries, or when she has children.  A woman becomes a woman when she becomes what God wants her to be.  When a woman becomes what God wants her to be, then her role as a wife and as a mother will be perfect.  God will have molded her and made her into the woman that He wanted her to be.  Not a woman that someone else wanted her to be.

It's now 3:51 a.m.  I have been awake for an hour with endless thoughts running through my mind.
God, I'm giving it all to you.  You know the answers.  You know the heartache.  Lord, continue to give me peace and comfort in my time and need.  Be with everyone tonight and just touch their hearts.  Let their heart know the peace of God that I have come to know.  Keep your hand on my daddy as he lies in the hospital battling pneumonia in both lungs.  I desperately wish I could be there by his bedside.   Thank you, Lord, for all that you have given me in my life.  I could never repay you.

You don't have to go it alone

There are days when you stagger
and days when you fall,
and days when you can't seem
to stand up at all.
But you don't have to go it alone.
You don't have to carry the load.
You can give it to Jesus at the side of the road
You don't have to go it alone.
There are days when your heartbreak
is too much to bear
and days when you're too hurt
to offer a prayer.
But you don't have to go it alone.
You don't have to dry your own tears,
You can give them to Jesus along with your fears.
You don't have to go it alone.
Cause there's power in the blood
and true love from the cross
a companion for everyone
who's ever felt lost.
There's more healing and comfort
than you've ever known,
You don't have to go it alone.
