For fun, I thought I’d post again today.  Plus, I’ve had a sleepy puppy all morning so I might as well take advantage of the quiet and snuggly time. I saw this on Alece’s blog and she gave credit to Brene Brown who said, ” I believe a joyful life is made up of joyful moments strung together by trust, gratitude, and inspiration.”  I did add the last FAVORITE part to it for an extra dose of joy =)

I am TRUSTING that god has a plan in this crazy wild ride that includes grad school, internship hours, marriage, and wonderings about how it’s all going to come together and work out. I’m trusting that all that I’m doing today will not be wasted and will not be for nothing, but that it has a purpose. 

I am GRATEFUL for slow mornings with my puppy and my Bible and for nights with my husband.

I am INSPIRED by bright colors, sunshine, friends, puppies, music, pinterest, traveling

My FAVORITE parts of the week were watching the voice with the husband, getting planet earth, and napping with Boaz.


How about you? What’s your TGIF look like today!? Any other ideas for another word that would work for the F?


5 minutes of fun, free writing on a Friday! Thanks to Lisa-Jo our prompt this week is….


i’m waiting here for you Lord. you’ve never left my side yet I sit in the silence waiting for the gentle nudge for me to be not afraid. you’re calling me out upon the waters. i know not where we are going yet i trust you for you’ve never failed me before. even when i was ever so angry and upset and disappointed….you were faithfully working behind my understanding, faithfully planning something even better and something set aside just for me.  yet in the same breath, you’re right there with me my fierce protector who shelters me from the one who steals, kills, and destroys. he may try to take my joy. he may try to take my hope. he may try to take my trust. but you’re the one who makes all things new. you won’t let my feet fall and  you hold my right hand. i’m secure in you. so i’m walking toward what we do not know. we’re walking toward you. hand in hand. learning this crazy dance called life and marriage. where you lead. we know not. oh how i so sometimes want to hand you a detailed plan, but then i’m reminded that you know so much more. there’s a reason you’re god and i’m not. so let meet us here. meet us in the questions and the wonderings.  meet me here, lord. i’m waiting here for you.
