Adventure in His Hands

If you have looked anywhere on my facebook this week you will see two new albums full of adventures from a 60 hour road trip that was 1200 miles full of adventure and a beautiful wedding for my close friend Drew. It was a pleasure to be a part of such a milestone in his life and I wouldn’t have missed it for the world! The drive was long and tiring but I believe that in everything an adventure is to be had. Adventure was definitely had but there were also some sweet quiet moments within my being. Driving home Sunday in all the beauty of Tennessee, thru the tornado damage of Mississippi, and onto the flat farmlands of Louisiana, I had a “bring-me-to-my-knees in awe of The Creator” kinda moment when that still small voice said "Not one of these flowers are here by chance....not one of those trees are snapped in half by chance....all of this You see....All of this you in MY HANDS...yes even the leaves and the flowers...I have ordained them all in their place for such a ti

Blogging Off The Weight & More

First Easter

Night before last I was driving home from Marksville and because my ipod was dead I was forced to scan the radio for some jams. I landed on a couple of fun songs but then I landed on Delilah. Please, bare with me as I bared with Delilah! I have not listened to her in literally 5 years but that night I got suckered in by her soothing manly voice, cheesy songs and stories that pull your heartstrings. I drove down the road as a woman told her story. Her story was one I am sure we have all heard but it never makes the listening easier. She thanked Delilah for what she does because she and her husband used to listen to Delilah's show every night. This woman had just lost her husband of 45 years to cancer. She went on to say that while she has family there with her, there is still a gaping whole in her life where her best friend, her lover, her husband once thrived. She kept her husband at home, even when the cancer had taken his sense of speach, but when they sat in those night hours he
