Thoughts From My Heart To Your's

Hi Sweet Friends,

I absolutely loved writing the post Thoughts from My Heart to Your’s. So, I decided to follow it up with Thoughts from My Heart to Your’s II. I may even turn it into a little series… seriously though, I love writing in this format!

Thoughts from my Heart to Your’s II

I’m thankful for… my family, my sweet sister-in-law, my best friend, my church, and all the people who support me, pray for me and encourage me.

Winter is coming. It’s time to warm up hands and hearts.

Love, sweet love. I see it when older couples tenderly hold hands. I feel it when my little guy snuggles in my arms. I treasure it when I look at old pictures and cherish the memories.

Fresh air and nature are good for the lungs and even better for the soul.

Knowledge is valuable. I don’t know what I would do without books. Life would be dull and my days would be boring without any learning.

With full stomachs, full houses, and full wallets, why are we so often discontent? Could it be that our hearts are full of self, instead of being filled with Christ?

Laughter adds light to the eyes, beauty to the smile, and joy to the heart. “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.”

Dates on a calendar represent the days of our lives. But those little white boxes running together can never describe the details of those days. The tears, the laughter, the heartache, and the joys of the past. The hopes, the dreams, and the plans of the future… “Oh Lord, ‘Teach us to number our days…’ and help us to remember that our life is but a vapor.

Time with people is precious. Breakfast with my cousin, shopping with my sister, lunch with a friend, phone calls from my best friend… may we never forget the value of time spent with others.

Words can bring health and healing or pain and destruction. When I speak, I want others to be encouraged, strengthened, and blessed – not torn down or discouraged. I want my words to reflect the Savior who saved my soul. May my words point others to Christ.

Twenty years old – I am no longer a teenager. Where did the years go? I can still remember my first night in youth group… glasses, braces, nervous giggles and all. Thank goodness those days are behind me.

In our house… the smells of food waft from the kitchen. Toys, books, and music fill the living room. Twinkly lights, stacks of books, and sweet flowers… that is my room and this is my home.

Completed  projects, finished books, and to-do’s crossed off my list… sometimes late nights and early morning are so worth it.

As I write, I can hear the wind outside my window. God’s Creation is majestic, even in the harshness of the wind.

My heart  is… happy, content, and at rest. Being a child of God means I walk by faith and not by sight… I can choose faith over fear. What joy and peace that brings to my soul.

“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength and my redeemer.” Psalm 19:14

Before you go: I just want to give you gals a head’s up that my posting schedule is going to be changing. I will now be publishing new posts every Thursday morning at 7 am (EST). I will occasionally post lifestyle posts (like this one) on Monday mornings. The devotionals will still be sent out on Saturday mornings. 🙂

See you back on Thursday!
