Sunday Inspiration

Sunday, January 25, 2015
Happy Sunday to you all. I hope your having a wonderful night. I am getting this up a little later than normal because it's just been one of those days when we have hung out together, watched tv, played games, and enjoyed each others company which takes precedent over blog posts. Sorry. 

Here this past week has been a roller coaster of emotions. We have been dealing with some kid issues that have shocked and hurt us all at the same time. We have prayed, talked, and found our way down south on a journey neither of us really expected. We were just going on faith that it would work out how we hoped. We have never been in any situation like this so everything is new. While I was there I experienced every feeling known to man. But I knew that God was with us every step of the way. I also knew that so many of you guys were with us...sending your love and prayers. Our entire family thanks you for taking the time to pray for us and for our children. It totally touched our hearts. It is because of your prayers that I think everything turned out the way it did.

The older I get the more I understand faith. God gives miracles to those who believe, courage to those who have faith, hope to those that dream, and love to those who accept him. I have always seen things with the glass half empty outlook but as I get older, I am learning that just a little faith goes a long way. Having faith gives you an opportunity to see things a different way. Knowing that God is leading the way, you just have to take one step at a time. Eventually all the pieces fall together.

Through this journey I have shared with you for your support, advice, and prayers. I have been an open book for years and while I find nothing wrong with sharing, others do. I responded to some of them in this post, but after thinking about it more, it probably was a waste of time. People are going to judge and criticize no matter what. I shouldn't waste my time because explaining something to someone who is dead set in their opinions is going to lead no where. Its hard because a part of this blogging and youtube journey that I have been on for over 5 years has allowed me to feel safe enough to share my thoughts and opinions on basically everything without any fear. But now when I sit down to edit a video or write a blog post, I am more cautious which is kinda sad. I don't write for them or make videos for them. I make them for us and sharing them with this wonderful community is just a bonus. Some might like it, some might not but either which way, I am going to continue to just be me and trust that God knows what he is doing.

" For we walk in faith, not by sight" 2 Corinthians 5:7 

My worries will get me no where. Most of the time we worry about things that never happen. Instead, I will continue to give all those problems to God and keep my focus on the most important things. I am still learning to control my thoughts but each day I push out a little more of the negativity and let the positive in.  Thank you for supporting us. Thank you for inspiring us...and thank you for sharing in our life.

I hope you have a great week. ♥
