I was thinking about this with Jesus this morning.
I want to be like this in my relationships.
Open Trusting No defense
Because that’s how I roll Not because the world is perfectly safe
That’s how I can be impregnable, unassailable, undefeated.
If, through the process of healing and growth, you have found yourself in that in-between place that feels like an abyss, understand that He is the pro at restoring the years you feel have been lost. Don’t try to construct a spaceship to get you back to earth as quickly as possible. Most of us are ill-equipped to man, much less assemble, that ship. He IS working all things together for good, even if you cannot see or fathom it. Leave space for the space. **Fellow wordpress blogger kerri on purpose

The way the 🌎 is right now doesn’t get to determine my reality. That stuff is there and I need to be a good American, but it is not my only reality.
Jesus Christ is.
I needed this today.
(Jesus I need some help here. #primethepump)
I appreciate these things:
Dogs friendly ears
Babies that smell like milk
Cleaning with some good music on
The fuzzy hair that stands up on baby elephants heads
Ears– so many different kinds!
Tulips–so graceful and elegant
Soft chenille pillow cases
earl grey, hot
Cool, green grass
Thank You Jesus. You did good. 🌷
Some kids that I care about are making bad choices right now.
Broken hearted parent
I know Jesus will not blow sunshine about this.
He will tell me the truth. Not everything that my kids do as adults is about me
But some of it is.
I did make some really bad mistakes
Especially when the twins (child #4 and #5,) were little and I was in the worst of my addiction and disassociation and losing time.
Especially when my kids got older and we got in adult-type arguments.
I remember new stuff all the time. Now that I am flat on my back in bed. I try not to obsess over it.
I own it. I’m sorry.
I’m learning new skills.
That’s all I can do.
God can do more.
Will Restore The
Those bad choices stole from us.
I’m grafted in to Abraham in Jesus. I claim this promise in all it’s spiritual richness and meaning. It’s mine.
He’s got a multi generational plan going here.
I trust Him at His word.
I was just thinking about something with Jesus.
Hubby and I have friction over whether to go out or stay home quite a bit.
Bring it on!
We have regular dates
1. once a week for conflict resolution
2. and once a week for fun.
And he will often say he wants to
While I have been home all the time and want to get out of my sickbed and see something beside my walls.
This song came to my mind as I was pondering……so I looked it up on YouTube and was listening to it again prayerfully with God.
I suddenly saw that this– our home– is
my husband’s Oasis.
rest and relax and let his hair down in respite.
Of course he would not want to leave it!
sweet that he wants me to be in it with him.
I think instead of being resentful at him and thinking he wants me to be constricted and limited,
I will reframe it reboot my heart
and find it endearing
that he wants to be safe at home with me.
We still need to compromise maybe every other time we can go out or something. I need that.
it helps me to understand where he’s coming from you know?
I used to think I was hot stuff. I did everything. Was in control of it all. Kept all my plates spinning. Was a bit bossy and abrasive, frankly.

Then MS happened and DID happened and foolish life choices happened…all
But all that doesn’t matter now.
As much as Jesus.
He’s got a plan for me which is good and hopeful and full of promise. (Jeremiah 29:11)
He’ll work it out.
He will give me beauty for those darn ashes. (Isaiah 61)
Paul tells himself the truth
God’s not like that . He gets it.
I think our feminist-influenced media gives our guys too much grief, not enough support.
They put the bar up there so high, that
no guy could reach it.
I think the average guy loves his family and wants to take care ❤ of them.
But the MrRogersmeetsscottishhighlandlaird ideal that the media idealizes is NOT real life.
Am I right?
I want my hubby to feel relaxed, accepted and admired at a 7 with the occasional 5 and occasional 8 or 9.
I want to be secure in my relationship
Jesus is my 10.
Always strong and confident, always tender and empathetic. That’s my God.
