When Journaling

January 15, 2016

Lesson of the Promised Land

My daughter came to me this morning and asked me to read her journal. Here is some soul deep truths she spilled onto the pages. I am writing it exactly as it is written within her book.

This is a story about Tracy O’Harlem (not real name). There she sat, a lump in her throat, and glistening tears in her eyes. The colorful cover of her diary bekoned her to come closer. The picture of a soaring bird seemed to say ‘Come, tell me your problems and I will comfort you.’ Actually, it seemed everything in the room was speaking to her. The high clock looked down on her saying ‘Now, quit! Only babies cry!’ The figurine of a sad ice skater seemed to be weeping ‘Poor Tracy! So…young!’ So Tracy gulped to hold down the tears, and reached for the diary which she got for her 11th birthday. She tried to count the months till her 12th birthday. ‘Two. Huh.’ She thought, ‘I guess I should start planning.’
She took a breath, grabbed her faverite neon orange pen. Then Tracy wrote.

‘My dear diary, today has just been heinous! First, when I woke up it was fine. but then after lunch…Erin, my two month old sister was screaming her lungs out, Peter was determined to wear ‘big brother undies’ even though, he keeps peeing everywhere but the potty, and Katie and Toss were fighting AGAIN! Momma was trying to get everyone to go outside, so I had to read my bible outside! I – okay pause. My daddy taught me this when I’m tempted to complain. Let’s start over.

‘My dear diary, today has just been wonderful! First when I woke up, it was simply marvoles! Momma’s calming Erin down very patiently. Erin’s so cute! Peter is determined to potty-train. I’m so proud of him! Katie and Ross have been trying to resolve their differences — I’m surprised how well they keep it under control. I’m really glad I was able to go outside because I think God doesn’t want us locked up in a box our entire lives. How grateful I am to be able to read His Word!

‘Do you see the difference, my precious diary? Same events, different attitudes. I pray God will give me a positive attitude.

Once again, I am humbled that I gain more insight from my children than they could ever gain from me.

Remember when we wrote about the 5 Day Adoption back in April? Well guess what…..the kickstarter was fullfilled and it’s READDDDYYYYY!!!!!!

Totally worth the wait!!!

5 Day Adoption

If you know of someone who needs encouragement to get through life’s challenges, mountains of obstacles, and/or is taking a step of faith…please share the 5 Day Adoption film with them.

We pray viewers will be encouraged and challenged to pray and fully trust God in all their circumstances.

This film will not only encourage adopting families and those wanting to help support those who adopt, but our prayers are that it encourages anyone facing life-changing decisions in their lives. We are also praying it reaches into the hearts of women who think abortion is their only option, when adoption is a life-saving option.

If you know someone who could use an encouraging, family-safe movie this Christmas, you can order an On-Demand copy or have a DVD/Blue-Ray shipped to you by ordering on the 5 Day Adoption website.

We were blessed to watch an early release of 5 Day Adoption. I tell you this, knowing so many who are struggling and finding it hard to have faith, this film is for you. This film, truly, is for everybody. As you watch, when you think their struggles can’t get any harder, they do. When you think the film is coming to a close, it’s not even close. Their faith is inspiring and contagious!

This film isn’t even fully about a 5 day adoption. But with that being said, it is very encouraging {beyond encouraging} for those who are taking those first steps into the world of adoption. We know how discouraging it can be. From friends/family who don’t quite understand, to the lengths of waiting to bring your little one home, to the extra expenses that you don’t foresee. You will be rejuvenated to do what God has called us to. And that’s to take care of the orphans.

We are dear friends with the McCoskey family and to know them is a blessing. I remember when I heard their story first hand and my jaw just hit the table. After months of preparation by, another dear friend, Kevin Peeples, this movie will be ready for viewing December 14th! You will want to gather your family around and enjoy an evening learning how to cross the Jordan.

5dayadoption
On December 14, 2015 you will be able to order via DVD, Blu Ray or On Demand. Make sure you’re ready to share 5 Day Adoption with others, because you’re gonna want to!

Blessings!

Plexus Carrier

What I recommend for most people when they sign up with Plexus is to start with Tri-Plex. The Tri-Plex is the Plexus Slim pink drink, ProBio 5 and Bio-Cleanse. I do what is known as the Fab Four. It is the Tri-Plex with the addition of the XFacto. That’s a lot of pills yo. And when I first began I had a hard time remembering if I had taken them all throughout the day, because you don’t take them all at once. So here’s my simple solution that has helped me immensely!

 

Plexus Carrier

When I was in the check out lane I grabbed one of these mint containers. When I got home I just emptied the mints into a baggy. I then grabbed allllllll of my capsules for the day and inserted them. I take the Plexus Slim in the morning so there’s no need to squeeze that packet in 😉

 

Plexus Carrier

So there ya go! Easy peasy fix! Simple to carry around especially if you’re going to be out and about.

If you’re ready to go PINK get in touch with me and I’ll be happy to help start you on your journey to a healthier way of life.

Plexus Introduction

I had just moved to Tennessee. It seemed every single person I made the acquaintance of sold Plexus. Like everyone. So I swore I would never have anything to do with Plexus. Whatever it was. Because that’s how stubborn I am. And honestly, I didn’t have the money. I had set it in my mind that it was a typical weight loss Multi-level Marketing gimmick.

Wow, was I wrong. Continue Reading…

This is going to seem so silly but I wanted to encourage you! And honestly, it’s really funny.

So…it all started when our checks finally arrived in the mail. The checks I had been so eager to deposit to finish paying off the credit card! A few days earlier while driving to the grocery I got a flat. So my husband was now at the dealership getting the tire replaced. Being creative I thought I’d drive up to his work and surprise him with the checks {in a Father’s Day card} and allow him to be the one to pay off the card. Here is how that first part went:
