Living Life

There are a million things to be worrying about in life right now

But guess what 

I'm not going to
I'm going to live. Life is such a beautiful gift. 
As I was driving today, I was overwhelmed by something simple, yet profound.
I'm alive. 
God has protected us each and every time we have gotten in a car and driven, each time we go out, each time we do ANYTHING really. 
Were alive and living.
Life can be tough, it can be exhausting and overwhelming. Lee and I are especially feeling the strain of life right now, but I am choosing (against my human nature) to live life and to love it. 
In the bad and in the good. 
It is a blessing


  1. Needed to be reminded of that! Thank you =D

  2. this post - along with all of the research i have gathered about you confirms that we are basically twins. except you are much cuter.
    I will also be marrying my HS sweetheart, first and only boyfriend, and I would loooove to talk to you about that sometime. Maybe after our first conversation? haha :)
    nice to meet you, so glad you found me!

  3. such a good reminder of God's love and protection.

  4. Such a good reminder!! I feel like I wrote this! exactly what's happening with us right now. But, through it all God is in control and His joy is MY strength!

  5. Thanks for entering my giveaway! So glad to have found your blog. Have a great rest of your weekend!

  6. So true :) Thanks for the reminder.

  7. Amen to that. Having another day, another hour, another moment to live and breathe and be all while connected with Christ is such a beautiful thing. All matters of this world we tend to stress over aren't worth the worry. It's hard to remember sometimes, but it's true. Grace and peace to you and Lee. :)

  8. So true! I'm currently reading a book called "One Thousand Gifts" that's all about be thankful for the little things. I know the Lord has blessed me with more than I could ever need, it's amazing how your perspective changes when are you are thankful :)

  9. amen :) very true. every breath we take is only because God is merciful...that astounds me so often (well, okay, when i take the time to step back and really consider my existence, when I am not caught up in worldly things). But God is good. All the time.

  10. This is so true. I agree 100%. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves of the smaller things in life. Thanks for the reminder and inspiration!
