Amazing what getting good quality rest will do for you.🙌🏼 Amazing what getting too little, poor quality rest will do to you too.😴 . This past week after getting back from Dallas, I was already tuckered out from busy days and less sleep (no naps for this pregnant mama🤪) than usual. Upon getting our boy back in our arms and catching up on all the kisses 💋we’ve been struggling this past week with any of us getting good quality sleep and any good amounts of it due to us battling his asthma—especially as it worsens when he’s laying down—it’s been one long and tiring week and it’s affecting me in more ways than one. Add into the mix overwhelming topics of planning for our FUTURE to include all things life insurance and the like can be mind boggling to someone like me who it just doesn’t always make total sense to can mean mind boggling. 🤯 Oh and, dreary rainy weather ALL week with no sun.😭☀️ Low energy, less motivation to workout, anxiety and worrisome flaring up, and foggy ness taking over mental clarity have been all things making up my week. A.k.a. Not very fun.🤦🏻♀️ . But what has helped:: Daily prayer and leaning into God and His presence in my silent time with Him each day, taking a break in the middle of the day to meditate on my Rosary, moving my body somehow each day even if it just meant sometime stretching or a 10 minute core workout, getting in all the healthy nutrients to fuel myself so my immune system doesn’t turn against me, giving myself GRACE to not have all the energy to keep everything as spotless and tidy as my usual self does, and just being thankful as I lay my head down each night for all that God had provided us with. No matter what trials and suffering you may be enduring at the moment, there’s always, always, something to be thankful for.💫💖 ‘After your season of suffering, God in all His grace will restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.’ -1 Peter 5:10
The Word of God is full of valuable information regarding the way we are to live our lives and what direction to go. Jeremiah 29:11 - I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths. And, we have comfort in knowing He is with us always, even unto the ends of the Earth - Matthew 28:20 #godsvoice. #godsplan. #god. #hisway. #myfaith. #faith. #purpose. #anointing. #wisdom. #guidance. #christlife. #jesus. #christ. #christianentrepreneur. #iamachristian. #religiondidntsaveme. #rdsm. #yahweh. #yeshua. #religion. #belief. #grace. #mercy.

And while you're down there thank #god for #graceandmercyandunderstading We all fall short of the glory, we all got plenty," he told the actors. a good way to make sure you pray every morning is to place your #shoes "way under the bed at night." Doing that he says ensures that you "gotta get on your #knees in the #morning . I think a role model is a #mentor – someone you see on a daily basis, and you learn from them. You #pray for rain, you gotta deal with the mud too. That’s a part of it. #myfaith helps me understand that circumstances don’t dictate my happiness, my inner peace. The chances you take, the #people you meet, the people you love, the faith that you have. That’s what’s going to define you. #success ? I don’t know what that word means. I’m happy. But success, that goes back to what in somebody’s eyes success means. For me, success is inner peace. That’s a good day for me. What it taught me was #forgiveness. It taught me that when people present themselves in a certain way, there’s probably some back story or issue or reason for the way that they are. It’s not you. It’s them. And a lot of times, its about something that’s completely out of their control. ~ #denzel Washington . ~DalaiLama “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so #anxious about the #future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” - #dalailama#happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. Our prime purpose in this #life is to #helpothers . And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them. #myreligion is very simple. My religion is
