The Long Medical Update


Some of you may recall about a month and a half ago I posted about having some health issues. During that time I was also struggling a lot with bouts of nausea, anxiety, depression, things I generally don't normally struggle with. I tend to be more of a worrier than I should be and the Lord has certainly been teaching me to give everything to Him and surrender all need to know how things will go, but there seemed to be something else going on that I just couldn't pinpoint.

That is until the last couple weeks, when it became apparent I couldn't go on pushing the fact I was really struggling out of my mind anymore. I needed answers.

It's Someone's Birthday Today...


And that someone happens to be a very good friend of mine, one I know doesn't often share when her birthday is for the sake of being modest and private.

Someone who cares so deeply for others and often stands in the sidelines giving encouragement.

Someone who dedicates herself to her writing and research, does everything she finds to do with all her might, and is probably the most mature young woman I've ever met.

Someone who loves the Lord and encourages everyone to do the same.

Someone all of you know well and love dearly, and enjoy just as much as I do.

The Faith-Killing Ladder



Did you know there’s a ladder out there that each of us will climb down that’s a “faith-killer” ladder?
It’s a different ladder for each of us, but once we begin to climb down that ladder we will fall into a pit of all sorts of issues, and it’s a hard ladder to climb back up.
Each of us has a different faith-killer ladder. It’s a ladder that makes us doubt God or believe lies about God, a ladder that causes our relationship with God to become tainted.
How many of you struggle with a faith-killer ladder?
I would imagine all of you do, but today I want to share my faith-killer ladder and the three steps on that ladder that lead down to my pit.
They are known as Worry, Anxiety and Fear.

Pen Pal Shout Out



I was thinking today how blessed I am.

While lying on my bed this afternoon I was contemplating my growing friendship with fellow blogger and writer, Ivy Rose, whom if you follow her blog are aware she underwent surgery today. I was praying for her a lot and just wondering how she was doing, when I got to thinking how I met Ivy.

And how I met Jesseca.

And how I met Megs, Kai and Tiff.

And how I met Kaitlyn K. and Rebekah Eddy.

Onward


When I look and see what my last post was, I am reminded of a quote I saw the other day by C.S. Lewis.
"Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different..."

It's been a long time, blog readers. A very long time, but I think I'm ready to take the step to get back into blogging. And I'm glad. These last couple months have been difficult, but God is good, and He's taught me sooo much that I want to share with you.

Hiatus


Dear readers,

I am currently going to be taking a leave of absence, despite the fact I made a goal to write a blog post every week. I think I need to take a break (sigh, again) to reevaluate some things in my life that are rapidly changing.

My work situation has changed. My horse situation has majorly changed. Life in my family has changed. And, yes, even my writing has changed to the point I feel I need to refocus and figure out what my writing goals even are.

Thank you readers, for understanding, for always being an encouragement, and your continuous support. It means the world to me. :)

God bless and take care!

Stallag 13...Erm, Bible Camp

EDIT: I KNOW I spelled "stalag" wrong but because I put some work into this picture... I'm just going to let it slide. So forgive me, typo shall exist throughout post. ;) 

Hello, dear readers!

As I previously mentioned, I was out of town last weekend on an excursion. An excursion that included a river, snow, kitchens, wood, friends and my first time away from any family for over twenty-four hours. It was an exciting time.

Where did I go, pray tell? Well, I went to Stallag 13!
