Angels In Disguise

Yesterday I was on my way to Wal-Mart to buy mt weekly groceries. Turning off of the main road into the parking lot, there is a gas station at the intersection. When I turned in, I noticed a homeless woman standing at the corner. I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I kept driving. As I was pulling into the Wal-Mart parking, lot the Holy Spirit spoke to my soul and I was reminded of the verse in the New Testament that says, "many have entertained angels in disguise."

Convicted over my lack of compassion, I turned my car around and made my way to the gas station where I bought the lady a sandwich and hot chocolate. I walked it across the parking lot to her where she humbly accepted the purchase, hugged my neck and said, "God bless you."

I walked about fifty feet back to my car and when I turned around to wave, she was gone. Gone!! Chills went through me. I looked everywhere and there was no sign of her.

I'm crying as I type this because I know that moment was so much bigger than I am. It was a moment of conviction for my lack of compassion, a moment of humility as I witnessed the women's gratitude, and a moment of overwhelming awe as I experienced the magnificence of our King.

I will never know whether or not that woman was an angel, but I will always remember the day my Abba Father taught me a valuable lesson and reminded me to be kind to strangers because some have entertained angels in disguise!

"Do not forget to show hospitality to srangers for some who have done this have enteratined angels without knowing it." Herbrews 13:2

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
