Not that kind of blogger....

Some blogs separate themselves.
They blog about their religion, but not about their family or anything else.
They blog about about their family, but keep their religious beliefs quiet.
They blog about funny things, but never the serious.
They blog about happy times but don't want to "be discouraging" and vent....

I am just not that kind of blogger. 
It's okay, that there are blogs like that...I follow many of them.
But I can't separate myself out like that. 

Because I am not a bookshelf. I am not a series of events, or a series of "qualities".
Everything I am, it's's all wrapped up into one. 

My kids, my husband, my faith in Christ, my good days and bad days, my funny moments, my venting, my's me. 
All of it is who I am, and to separate it out would not be a representation of myself. 

It's Friday. But it's also Good Friday.
The day I remember, along with millions of other Christ follower's, that Jesus died on the cross for me.

Such a gut wrenching reality check, that He took my burden and willingly gave Himself for me...pardoned me.

I am eternally grateful for His sacrifice and forever in awe of it.

Tonight, we make Resurrection Rolls, to teach them....even now, the miracle of the Cross.


  1. I'm not that kind of blogger either. But you already knew that:) A blessed Good Friday to you!

  2. I love this! I feel exactly the same way! When I started my blog I wanted it to be about my pregnancy and raising twins but then I discovered that I couldn't separate myself out like that. I have good days and bad days and my faith is a huge part of who I am. I figured if I was going to blog I had to show all of me. I'm so glad you do that! It's why I love your blog!

  3. Love this post! I feel the same way! Have a great Good Friday! I love the Resurrection Rolls and I love that you're teaching your children at a young age! Blessings Friend!

  4. Love this! Who are we and what on earth are we doing if we're not honest?! Thank you for sharing, I was blessed to read this today. :-)

  5. Love you!!!! Enjoy your Easter and really, truly, we gotta work on that coffee.....

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

Excited about Chemo, Preaching and Pumpkins.

As the days draw closer to my next round I find myself almost excited?!?!  Is that just the weirdest thing? I know what to expect now when I go, I have the BEST support system and I know it means one more round down and one more day closer to being done with all of this. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my week break in between, but I don’t feel anxious going in. I feel hope. Something I thought was going to be allusive this entire process.  ( PS: I reserve the right to change my mind about this at any point along the way!!) Tomorrow brings a blood draw, appointment with my oncologist (okay that always makes me nervous- I like the PA better) and then another Pre-Chemo Movie Night with friends and family. If Cinemark stops this before I’m done with chemo I’m going to have an issue!!! Oh and I get my hair cut!! You know, even if I mostly only go to doctors appointments you gotta keep the hairs lookin good. Tonight I got to teach/preach for the first time since March. I had a lot of anxiety go
