Home of the Brave.

I’m truly grateful and have a great respect to those who fought and are fighting for our country.  Independance Day is truly a great reminder to celebrate all freedom not just our country’s but personal and spiritual freedoms.  Independence Day becomes more meaningful to me each year since being free from the home of the…

God Restores.

After sharing a fraction of my story to a good church friend, she said to me with the most upmost confidence and knowledge that they believed God can restore anything. I believe that as well. It’s a comment I’ve heard many times throughout, since my separation. The thing is, to know what God is recovering…

Easter Odds and Ends.

Here are some cute simple last minute Easter decorations to welcome your friends and family this year to your Easter gathering.  Happy Easter!

Friend Powers.

It just amazes me how some people are so full of themselves that it sucks up all of their friend powers. It seems crazy to me to be anything other than nice but ok. When you’re the person that’s had to leave a relationship it seems a lot of judgement comes upon you. Last night…

DIY and be merry.

Oh I love coffee and things you can do yourself! Especially having the freedom to do things yourself. Here’s some great ideas for displaying your mugs and wine glasses. I really like my coffee mugs. I especially like the bunny one I’m drinking out of these days.   So this doesn’t relate to coffee but…

Hurt people, can hope.

I’ve often thought of this statement I’ve heard, ‘hurt people, hurt people’. I’ve also seen; healed people, heal people and loved people, love people. These statements really make you see people differently, without judgement but rather heart to heart. People don’t murder because they’re awful people, it’s because they hurt. People don’t heal people with…

Don’t loose your marbles.

Don’t loose your marble in 2017! Marble countertops is another trend this year. Some marble surfaces can be a bit busy looking in my opinion but some of these looks are very nice, clean and sophisticated. I really like the idea of using the surface being accented with just the island or with another countertop…
