Kindness in giving creates love. Just like a flower that constantly produces sweet nectar, we can also be a beautiful giving flower that brightens up the world by simply giving without expectation. [ Your relationship should NOT be the main source of your anxiety ... That's not a relationship; that's a prison. ]
What is truly attractive in a partner isn't always about looks ... It's about their faith, their heart, their commitment, & their willingness to care about your feelings. 💏💞 You should never have to constantly tell somebody how to respect you ... That should come naturally with their love for you if it's genuine & selfless❤💙 Don't settle for less than God's best for you👍🙌 𝓛𝓲𝓯𝓮 𝓘𝓼 𝓛𝓸𝓿𝓮 😍😍💘💘🔥 #KingdomMinded#TakeThatBattleToGod#ThePrayingHeart 🙏❤💑💙💍🙏🏻

Next up.. 10th year and the goal is to go back to Hawaii where it all started. ❤️ @shen_fran#Godfirst

Tonight was rough. Tonight I wanted to give in. Tonight I lost my perspective. I normally sit next to my son every night and wait for him to fall asleep - 10 minute tops. But tonight as it hit the 30 minute mark I was on the verge of tears. There was no sign of him being tired as he rolled around, blabbling his baby talk, clapping his hands and then doing it all over again. I could feel my frustration building. Why would he not fall asleep? I was exhausted from the long day, I was tired, we had accomplished a lot that day but it
had tired me out. I wanted to sit on the couch, drink my tea and snuggle with my husband and head to bed. I wanted rest.
Then as I looked over the crib and down at him, God spoke to me. I am blessed. I have a son. A son who might not be sleeping at the moment, but a loving wonderful and beautiful son. He reminded me of what some people would give to be able to sit and watch their child fall asleep. To watch him slowly relax once he sees the protective silhouette of a parent sitting next to him. Knowing he's not alone but with the person who would give anything for him in a heartbeat. He is a blessing.
God reminded me that this is a short season and a season that one day I would look back at and miss. Miss sitting next to him. Miss him reaching through his crib to feel you and make sure you were still there. So I made a decision that moment, this is a season that I will enjoy, for I know that one day the door to his room will close between us, but for now I will enjoy the doors closing behind us. Keeping us in the room together, being his
comfort. God, thank you for this blessing. .
Throwback picture of when we fell asleep together ❤️ .

Jeremiah 29:11 I’ll be the first to admit that when things start going down hill I immediately try to take control and take everything into my own hands instead of trusting in God and really listening and turning to Him when times are tough. Let me tell you,I come up short every time I do.haha I’m learning to release the reigns and hand them over to him and I’m excited to go through a season of growth 🙏

Isn't it amazing how birds just wake up singing a beautiful song? It's as if their whole purpose in life is to soar through the sky with their wings spread far and wide to bask under the sun and eventually swoop down to catch a fat, juicy worm. Birds live a carefree life but that should not be mistaken with a responsibility- free life because birds still need to build their nests and hunt for their food. Yet, they do all of that with a beautiful song in their mouths!
It's no wonder that Jesus points to birds when He sees people feeling anxious and nervous about life, so He says, "Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?Matthew 6:26-27 Jesus not only assures us that God places great value on us, He also tells us what to do instead of being anxious about life, " But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." By doing things God's way, there is sure success! By living to glorify God with all you do, you will shine in the darkest of places! So....even though our needs are very real, put your worries away and stop to read some scripture, then do what it tells you to do. Read. Do. And you just might get the creative thought you were looking for or you might think of the solution to the problem you've had for some time. Or....it might lead you to make a decision that will point you to the right people.
Be like the birds...live in your purpose....move in your purpose....speak in your purpose....and maybe a song will bubble up in your heart too!
