We live in a culture obsessed with "signs." It's in our literature, our music our entertainment. I mean think about it. We have blockbuster hits like this:

We have comedians who base their entire setup around the concept:

Then, we have this:

Bruce Almighty....and this is where it all begins!

Yesterday we were watching Bruce Almighty while getting Eli ready for bed. Now, I'm not a particular fan of the movie because I think it is slightly irreverent, but that's not the point! I was watching the scene where Bruce is driving down the road and praying for a sign from God, meanwhile they were all around him. He, of course, is blinded by his rage and doesn't pay attention, resulting in a car accident. At this point he jumps out of the car angry at God for not intervening, for not helping him and for not directing him. Bruce's accusations were absurd because anyone could see God's direction for him.

Right there the Holy Spirit revealed to me a prfound truth. We may not go as far as mocking God in our distress as Bruce did but on some level their is ignorance in our own blindness. We not see litteral street signs pointing us on the right path, but we do have God's word to map our course. You see we all live a version of this scene at some point in our lives, and the audacity of Bruce mocking God is just as absurd as our lack of faith or our anger at God when it was us that did in fact disobey.

His word it our street sign and clearly lays out a path for us. Like Bruce the choice is ours. We can either follow it or we can be blinded by our self pity, either way the directions are before us.

Being the ever philosophical person I am..ha..I thought nothing more about this and went to bed.

Here's the crazy part: I have come across the following verse on three seperate ocassions this week:

"The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up."


The truth is I've been covering one particular area of my life in prayer this past week, wondering what direction God would have me take. We'll there is my answer...plain as day!

Where is your sign pointing?

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
