It is what it is

The phrase in the picture above. It’s one of my favorites. Coined by my bestie and I to remind ourselves to not worry over things we can’t control. It has carried us through tough things. Even trivial nuisances. I even have a bracelet to commemorate our adoption of the phrase. However, I heard in a [...]

Placing your burdens in His hands

"You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.” Matthew 21:22 Prayer. It is our connection to God. The way we seek answers, and intercede for those we desire to be healed, saved, or to find peace. Prayer is a daily act of thanksgiving, surrender, and sometimes even our heaviest [...]

Together We Have Him

The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by their hand. Psalm 37:23 I love snow. Well, let me rephrase that. I love "looking" at the snow. I love watching the dense white flakes fall [...]
