Be Still

Good Monday morning, friends! Take a few seconds to look at this short clip. Did it make you smile a little? Which one are you — the alert pup or the sleepy one? I bet you already know which one I am.

In our house, I’m the first one up every day. By the time my husband wakes up, I’ve been up for a couple hours talking to the Lord, writing, drinking coffee, hydrating, and eating breakfast. The second I hear him moving around upstairs, I have to contain my excitement. Part of me wants to dart upstairs to share everything that I’ve been thinking about while he slept, but I know that wouldn’t be fair. All he can muster in the wee hours are a hug and a kiss. I’ll take that though, but it’s so hard to be still.

Our prayer life can be like this, too. For…

Introducing Captain Jills Journeys!!

Capt Jills Journeys

Whoo-whoo! I’m heading out early tomorrow morning for a job. I’ll be joining the ship in Corpus Christi and heading offshore for sea trials. It’s only temporary, and it’s only as an AB, but it’s a job. At sea!

It should be interesting. I googled the ship I’m going to. It’s a ro-ro (roll on- roll off). I’ve never worked on one of them before. It’s a MSC (Military Sealift Command) ship. Here’s a picture I found on google.

USNS Mendonca

I’ve tried to avoid working for MSC since they seem to never let you off (at least as an officer). I don’t really want to do a 4 month long hitch and then stay for another couple months since they can’t find a relief. Then they want you back after only a month off!

Still, I’ve been considering even going to work for them. I’d rather be…

Meet Better Twogether!!

Better Twogether

It doesn’t take much to motivate some folks. They are intrinsically excited to move forward with passion. Their vision is clear, and they remain focused on achieving their goals. There are others, however, who have the vision and the passion, but their fears outnumber the reasons why they should keep moving forward. They lack the courage to keep going because they don’t know where…

Rude Girl - Living in an Aspie World

Hello all my amazing readers and followers!

I hope you are all having a lovely Friday. I am back with another Favorite Friday questionnaire. I haven’t posted one in quite awhile because I wanted to find ways to be more organized with this series so I don’t have to repeat so many questions. I came up with an idea that I think will work for me. Although some will be repeated from my first two series as they were general questions, but I am going to do my series in categories. (ie: favorite foods and drinks, favorite music, favorite movies etc) Basically it will break down the questions into more detailed information and a series will focus on one subject. I got this idea from a website which I will bookmark and follow. Hopefully this makes sense, if not I am sure you will get the idea as I do…

Minimalism: Less is more

RAFA FARIHAH

It’s officially the first day of fall but this Houston heat hasn’t backed down even a smidge. It might even be mid to late October till we get a cool breeze around here during the daytime. My wardrobe sure as hell won’t be waiting around for that (trust me, we’d be waiting till January for a decent drop in temperature).

It’s a new season, and I’ve got a new fashion approach I’m willing to take on. It’s trending, it’s in, and it’s what all the broke college kids are talking about these days — minimalism. You mean like minimal body coverage? Ummm, no. It doesn’t mean minimal effort either. Minimalism is about living with fewer material possessions and making the most of what you have so you can focus on what’s really important in life. This can mean redecorating your home in the simplest way possible, reducing clutter, and donating…

When Family Doesn’t Deserve You (Displaced Loyalty) – Level Up Stud

Clearing…

Aria-Bella Rises

clear yes

The last couple of days have been big, tough ones but also very cleansing as well.

I finally, after almost four months, cleared up all of my pooches stuff – the stuff I couldn’t bear to put away from his last couple of days with us.

It was hard, gut-wrenching and full of tears but I also knew deep down where it was no longer staying quiet that in order to move on, I needed to do this. Didn’t make it any easier and even a day later, my eyes still drift to where those things were and they are no longer there and tears want to come.

But I was holding myself back, caught up in the storm of horror that the last 48 hours of his life had become. It was taking me back there every single time I caught a glimpse of them, which being in the…
