A Fresh Start

Hey Friends!  I'm baaaaack!  I've been so excited to reopen my blog and share with you the things that God has put on my heart recently!  I've decided that this time around things are going to be set up a little different, though.  Since I've been gone I've made some changes to my life.  My first grandchild was born this summer to my daughter and I really wanted to make my time with him one of my top priorities.  When my children were young I missed so many moments because I was always so busy with "life" that I was never in the moment.  I have vowed that this time around was going to be different.  I left my position as a children's pastor to accomplish this. I miss working with the kids, but now my energy and creativity is back at home, where it belongs.

Not only have I put my energy back at home, but I've had time to refocus on the things that really matter to me.  I have reprioritized my loves and interests to make room for things I love and new interests that I have discovered.  That is where a blog revamping has come into play.  Although I have accepted that I will not have the opportunity to blog everyday, I have some new directions I am going to take my blog.  I hope that it will inspire you as I open my heart with new creativity and realizations  of a momma with an everyday life, lived for Jesus as best I can.

Monday will alternate between "Mommy Mondays" and "My Life Mondays".  I will share my experiences as a Mom and encouragement (hopefully) and frustrations as we walk this journey of motherhood together.  Some days will just be about me and my story, because we all have a story to tell.  I might share pictures of my family and life's challenges as a mom of adult children.  Also, some of the challenges we've been through on our journey of adoption.  The good and the bad.

Tuesday will be "'Round To It Tuesday".  There has been many projects that I have wanted to get to but have never had the time.  Some are very fun and interesting projects that might produce creativity in someone.  So, I'm going to share some of those things with you and hopefully motivate someone to  do the same.

Wednesday will be "Worship Wednesday".  Music inspires me greatly and has had a huge impact on my life, getting me through some of the toughest times.  Sharing what a song means to me at a particular moment in my life, we can connect through music and worship.  Perhaps I will even be able to hear how a song has affected you.

Thursday will be "Deep Thoughts Thursday".  I clean houses for a living.  When cleaning, there is a lot of time for thinking.  This is when God speaks His truths to my heart the most.  I want to share what Good News God has put on my heart.  I believe He knows who needs to hear the words I pen and the Holy Spirit will speak life into YOUR hearts as I share from His Word.

Friday will be "Refashion Friday".  This is one of the newest creations that has gained my attention recently.  Inspired by, I have started my own thrift store shopping and creating new fashions.  I'm excited to share what I've created and will be sharing on my new blog first, All Things New.  I've already finished several refashion projects and can't wait to share them with you.  Follow me on my new page also, to be notified of contests and promotions.

The weekends will be a Wild Card, if I post.  So, to start the fun, I am participating in a giveaway for those who follow my page.  You can follow me on Facebook, Instagram,  and Pinterest and be entered to win $400!  Good luck and God Bless!
