optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

Running

I don't really want to run today. I can't go to the gym... Its hot outside, I hate carrying water, etc. But yesterday a good friend of mine said "everyday you are not in the gym, your competition is" apparantly his football coach told him that and it stuck with him, and it inspired others yesterday.

I could easily dismiss the quote and say "I'm not competing anymore" but I am. There are hundreds if not thousands of voices in my head... things that people have said to me, written, or just made me feel that have made me believe that I am "too" something or not good enough.

I don't know when it happened, maybe it was the moment that I bought that smaller size or maybe it was the day when I realized that it truly was the other person who was missing out, and it wasn't me, but somewhere, somehow I let God speak to me, I let Him tell me who I was. I decided that even if some people don't understand my motives, that I will be who I am, I will use my gifts, and I will love and support those I love, and if people don't understand, I am not sure what to say to them.

Do I know that I need to lose more weight? Yes, I do, I know that everyday is a choice to get closer to my goal. I don't need anyone to tell me, I know. Do I know that it was my choices that got me here, and it will be my choices (and attitudes) to the place where I want to be? YES!

In the bible it says that I am God's Masterpiece (Eph 2:10 NLT) and that He will continue to work in me, and maybe I am not a size 2 (or 4) and maybe I never will be, but I'm really starting to see who I am and who I was created to be! I will not stop, I won't back down, until I get to where I need to be, on the inside and the outside!

1 Cor 9:24-25 24Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.

Preparing for Winter

10 qts Peaches
‎17 bags of green beans
4 bags of broccoli
8 bags of squash
6 bags of zucchini/onions/garlic
8 Pints Pickles

I am glad that I decided against the case of tomatoes this weekend, that would have been way too much! I'm pretty excited about getting all that done!

I've never canned before so I decided to start with pickles, Kosher Dill. I used a mix with pickling cucumbers, I need to wait 4-6 weeks before I can open them! I hope they are good, its been like music to my ears hearing the snapping of the cans.

I think I want to do 4-6 more bunches of broccoli and when I do the tomatoes, I will do salsa and tomatoes.

I was going to buy the canning jars at the farmer's market but thought I'd shop around and ended up finding the same wide mouth pints for $4 cheaper at Kroger ($6.99 vs $10.99) so that made me happy! I've got qt jars just need lids. I may go get one more case for homemade applesauce that I do every year.

It makes me happy knowing I am preparing for winter, and also preparing yummy food and a cheaper price that buying it in the winter.

Anyway, that's it from the mom who loves in food!

'Highlights' from the last couple weeks

Its been a good couple weeks that I just haven’t felt ‘right’. I could list a million reasons (ok, maybe 20) of all the reasons why I could have just packed up, and left. Hurt, hurt, and a little hurt on the side. Today I had this crazy day all to myself pretty much to think. I got highlights, after about a 4 year reprieve. So I’ll give you the ‘highlights’ of the last couple weeks.

Its been kind of crazy just in general. I needed some time to myself, some may say ‘well deserved’ but if I got what I deserved… you know. Pit of Fire. But I know that even Jesus needed to chill out and recharge, relax, refocus, not sure what He did. But I needed some ‘chill’ time. So today I got my nails done (every two weeks always), my once a year pedi (yes, really, I only treat myself to one a year, its all I need), I have great feet, and highlights. I did learn that I can only take so much time in a salon before I am about to lose it.

I went to Blocks and got green beans, peaches, pickling cukes, acorn squash, and a whole lotta yummy goodness that I will prepare for the winter to have summer’s goodness when its cold outside. Gonna snap green beans while watching a movie. I haven’t been to Blocks since flower season, I forgot how super crazy and crabby people are there. I just tried to smile and say hello! I know people are in a hurry, its crowded, etc, but really, its great produce and a phenomenal price, be thankful people! I also decided that I am not sure why I plant a garden, it just is so small, and so ridiculous and I don’t have time to tend to it, next year, I’ll just do what I always end up doing, going to Blocks for all my harvest! And a bushel of green beans is A LOT of green beans! Oh, and the ziplock vacuum seal things IS FABULOUS!

I’ve been playing ‘the’ meeting in my head that happened almost two weeks ago, I can’t seem to shake it which is why I was up at 5:15 this morning and couldn’t sleep. Oh, why? Yikes. It’s a terrible thing to play something yucky over and over in your head. I just keep trying to remember 1 John 4:19.

But anyway, I put together a list of ‘thank You’s for God, I just keep replaying them in my head and expending on my list by the minute, completely changes your attitude if you ask me, you didn’t, but you’re still here…

Remember, it is not always when we have something that we celebrate. That was said by some really smart guy in Africa.

Keep loving because its like Mother Teresa said… I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

And that’s my ‘highlights’. And in case you’re wondering… my hair, it looks AWESOME!

Dear God,

Thank You for...


Running, the ablity, the super great high after

Kathy Kane's flowers, they are beautiful scenery as I run by

water, it refreshes me, also thank You for letting me come thirsty

Running shoes

Sports bras

cool nights

mp3 players and arm bands

Phyllis

Megan & Cal

running by the water

walkjogrun.net

the fact that when I look down i can't see my belly sticking out

the money to buy new pants

sexy shoes (to wear with my new pants)

You...

I can't even begin to tell you...

...how stressed I am.

I need to get away... but to where? I'm not sure since I am pretty low maintaince, I need a place to put my head to rest, a toaster for my Ezekial bread and a place to store my water. For cheap. And a place to sit in the morning a soak up the morning would be pretty great.

I need a place for God to speak to me, to breathe in clean air and refocus or focus. Whichever.

I need a place that I can set my bags so that I can go out on an adventure in the woods or to a cute little mom and pop place for lunch.

A place where the sun shines. Blue skies and clouds.

I can't begin to tell you how stressed I am and how a little get away will calm me down and soothe my soul. A place where I can breathe and cry. I'd go camping but I hate camping lol.

I am going to try to find some place up north or to the west where I can stick my feet in the water in sandy beach, a place where I can run on a trail.

Not sure where yet, but I can hear it calling me.

To love

To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides. ~David Viscott

Its one of my favorite quotes.

I don’t know how to explain it, but I feel like I was meant to love from the very beginning. I don’t really always do it all that great, and when I’m hurt, I’m even stinkier at it. But from the core of my being, all I want to do is love.

I can’t put into words what this week has been to me, the only day I didn’t cry was Monday. I’ve been so hurt. One by someone who had acted like they were my friend, that they cared about me, and truly it just isn’t that way. I don’t know what I did, if I did anything, I just know that I am tired of wondering how I can fix it. I just decided (and I should have decided this long ago) to put it at the feet of Jesus, continue to be the love I can be, and pray that the relationship is restored. Maybe to some it wouldn’t matter, but to me it really really does.

Then another situation came up and I’ve been asked (told) to do something that I don’t like doing, that from my core I believe to be wrong.

Today, I went to see Eat Pray Love. I walked out kind of just melancholy. It was so good, I love Love and so of course, I loved the movie. Just struggling all week, and I’ve been asking God to speak to me, and He has, I just want to get to the root of this pain so I can pull it out like a bad weed and move on with my bad self.

The root. Love.

You can’t uproot love.

The pain comes from the absence of love.

I wasn’t really paying attention to the song playing in the car, and all of a sudden, this came on…

In my life be lifted high
In our world be lifted high
In our love be lifted high

I thought back earlier in the week walking out the door, and I just started singing this. It was my prayer that day, I had no words, but I had this bridge to ‘Came to my rescue’ and as it came on today, I was just sobbing. At the core of my being, that love, its God. In all I do, in all the ways I love, I want Him to be the center. I think of those hurting, of those who I’ve hurt, for those who have hurt me, let it all be gone, because of His love.

Not always do I do the right thing, I often fail miserably at a lot of things, and often I don’t love like I want to, or should, but everyday, I want It to be my core, His love.

I want to feel the sun on both sides.

1 John 4:19 We love because he first loved us.

choosing to live love

Maybe for some its easy just to live without love.

I truly want to make the world a better place, with love. Though many times I fail.

We come to the end of another week, and I can only tell you that my heart is breaking. In all the good I see around me, I still see so much hurt and fear. It wears me out, it sometimes immobilizes me. It makes me feel like a failure, like I didn't do enough. That people don't choose love, and maybe its because I don't show love enough, my faults get in the way.

This week, all I've been able to do is rest in the peace that is called Jesus. I've been a mess all week, I can tell you that for sure I thought I'd run out of tears because I've cried so much. Apparantly that's not possible or I just haven't cried enough yet.

The other week God put in my heart Gal 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. That's what I have to keep remembering, its etched in my heart and when I think of giving up, I remember that verse. I will continue to choose love, no matter how difficult it is.

Today's verse of the day:
“I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”- Psalm 16:8

Please

How come it never seems enough?

One week in Highland Park

To say the least a dangerous city
A hurting city
A city that needs hope
So many times I prayed for God to restore hope in someone’s life
I remember them.
Their lives etched somehow in my heart
Women
Men
Children
Older people
Crackheads
Prostitutes

God they need You.
They need your hope, your love, your mercy, your grace.
I didn’t even want to be there most of the week.
Do I feel called to Highland Park?
I don’t think so.
Do I feel called?
Yes.
There has got to be something more than this.
How do I love without fear?
How do I just say ‘no fear’?
There is no fear in perfect love.
The bible tells me that.

There are a few prayers I pray that are scary.

Do whatever it takes Lord
Break my heart for what breaks Yours.

And…
Close a door.
Slam it.
Lock it.
Don’t leave an opportunity for me to return where I was.

Don’t let me be afraid.
And when I’m afraid.
Make me push forward anyway.
Let me cry
Buy my tears.
And push me forward.
Close the doors to the things that are not your way.
I’m not that smart God.
Make it easy for me.
Take the things that used to be
And remove them.
Less of me
More of You.

More of Your love.

In everything
In everyday
In everyway

I hate change, its no surprise to You – You know my heart – and love me anyway.

But I feel it coming.
And maybe I’m resisting
Maybe.
Am I scared?
I want to be obedient.
I want to be where You want.

Shut the doors to the things – to the ways you do not want me to go

Let me love

Bigger than I thought possible

Let me live love

Let me live this:

I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love (Mother Teresa)

Please

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

Pony

There are twin boys of five or six. Mom was worried that the boys had developed extreme personalities -- one was a total pessimist, the other a total optimist -- their parents took them to a psychiatrist.


First the psychiatrist treated the pessimist. Trying to brighten his outlook, the psychiatrist took him to a room piled to the ceiling with brand-new toys. But instead of yelping with delight, the little boy burst into tears. "What's the matter?" the psychiatrist asked, baffled. "Don't you want to play with any of the toys?" "Yes," the little boy bawled, "but if I did I'd only break them."

Next the psychiatrist treated the optimist. Trying to dampen his out look, the psychiatrist took him to a room piled to the ceiling with horse manure. But instead of wrinkling his nose in disgust, the optimist emitted just the yelp of delight the psychiatrist had been hoping to hear from his brother, the pessimist. Then he clambered to the top of the pile, dropped to his knees, and began gleefully digging out scoop after scoop with his bare hands. "What do you think you're doing?" the psychiatrist asked, just as baffled by the optimist as he had been by the pessimist. "With all this manure," the little boy replied, beaming, "there must be a pony in here somewhere"

who's afraid of the big bad wolf?

You know that I am always fearful.




Today I thought of something.

There is only two things that I would be most afraid of losing.

Phyllis and Jesus

I mean I love the rest of my family, but those are my two most important things.

Those two things will not ever be taken away from me.

Phyllis knows Jesus so we will always be together

Jesus has promised to never leave me nor forsake me.

Nothing to be afraid of....

hands of provision

I love this picture from IKEA, I'd be thrilled to give credit to the correct person, however I don't know who took it or even how to find it on the web, I've tried.  So I took a picture of my new picture.  I need to paint my dining room and kitchen (ok have it painted) so I can hang it.  I love it! 

Its a very simple picture.  Its not the Hands of God but some small child I think holding currants.  Most people probably don't even know what currants are, they are not the most popular of fruits, I probably wouldn't even know, but I remember when I was little eating currant jelly.  I don't remember what it tastes like, but I do remember liking it. 

Maybe its because the voices in my head are so loud that I can't seem to hear anything, its complete chaos in there (my mind seriously is a dark and scary place)  but this picture is so simple. Two hands holding currants.

It reminds me that God always provides.  Today He provided me with a friend who wouldn't take no for an answer.   It was what I needed.  I just needed to talk, and to cry, and to laugh. 

I can't wait to put my picture up.  I do need to go get a frame, why I didn't get one at IKEA I am not sure.  I guess its a good excuse to go back :) 

I'm not physically tired, I am not even spiritually tired, I just don't know where to go.  I feel kind of 'stuck'.  I know that I have to clear out the craziness, I know that I want to go in His direction, I just don't know where His direction is for me.  I know that I have to be still (ever notice that I struggle with that... lol)  but I also know what so much He has put Gal 6:9 on my heart.
 
Gal 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

God's provision.

Reaping a harvest

He always provides.

Always.

crazy!

I wish I could tell you right now about the events of the last week. I will, eventually, just not yet. But I came home to my room painted, I had hired someone to paint my room while I was gone, I figured it would be easiest since I wasn’t home, I moved all the stuff out of the room and he painted. I am blessed to have some great people in my life that stretch me and love me. I came home to my bed being made, new sheets, flowers, and just feeling this overwhelming sense of being loved.

I picked out the colors of my room in literally 5 minutes. I guess sometimes its better to be lucky than good. If you know me, you know that I am not a decorator, its just not my thing. When I moved into my house, every room but Phyllis’s was buttercream. I just am not good at these sort of things. So I chose the colors of my room and I love it, though all week I kind of anguished over it. I feel settled there.

I feel like everything in my life is in a constant state of flux. I love the saying ‘in those times I can't seem to find God, I rest in assurance He knows how to find me. ~Neva Coyle. I feel like I’m just trying to be quiet because I am afraid that if I speak it won’t be good, and besides, hurting people hurt people. So I’ll just be quiet and let God do the speaking.

I am excited to go back to working out. I missed it last week. Zumba on Monday and Tuesday whether the team is there or not I will be there. Thursday will be my trek to Cranbrook. I love it there, its so beautiful and each time I go, I see something different, but always wonder through the beautiful house/garden. Its so amazing to me, the colors are so alive.

So that’s it, I’ve got a lot going on and I might be doing a lot of writing this week.

Lovetoyouall!

Home Again Finnegan!

This is gonna be a short post, I've GOT to go get my nails done, but I absolutely feel the need to write.

God moved this trip and it was great to see what He did for the kids.

Me, my feet hurt so bad on Thursday, I almost wished that someone would have cut them off.

Its Saturday, 'the morning after' and I can't actually explain how I feel, because I've felt every emotion I think possible this week. The one that stands out the most: fear. I have had to be on guard all week, I seriously at one point thought 'where is Sara for all these crazy people?'. Seriously. I saw enough crazy people to fill a whole hospital. (and I am sure I'm not supposed to call them crazy)

I'm super thankful for the following:
1. Others who are naive
2. Protection (I think this should be all 10)
3. People who love Jesus
4. Getting to hear the things the kids saw God do, and hearing them worship
5. Pizza on the last night
6. Coming home to a freshly painted room, furniture moved, balloons, flowers, made bed, no dishes in the sink.
7. Being home safe
8. A daughter who doesn't mind doing laundry
9. A bathtub
10. Sleeping in my own bed
11. And a Jesus who never leaves us

The Word

In the last half hour, I have received two messages about how it's so impportant to keep the Word of God in your heart and your head. It is the living Word.

In the Book I'll have what she's having by Bobbie Houston, she says "When the Word of God is entwined in and through your life, nothing can prevail against you because nothing can prevail against the living Word."

And then I turned on the TV, Ever Increasing Faith Ministries it was about the parable of the seed.

Tomorrow we leave for the mission trip, last year I hardly opened my bible. I was "too busy" and I will tell you that by the end of the trip, I was S-P-E-N-T. I figured it out AFTER we were home. That lesson spoke loudly in my life. Be in Word or you'll be of the world.

This past week was quite a week in a lot of ways. I was so thankful to have His Word coursing through my veins. Even though I cried, He spoke to me with His Word. On Thursday, the scripture that was loud and clear - Romans 12:21 Do not repay evil with evil, repay evil with good". Even though that's easy to say, sometimes its really not that easy to live. If it is for you, please send me a note and tell me how you do it because for me its a struggle.

I'm excited about this week, but always nervous things won't turn out or there will be an issue. God's Word says "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God" (Phil 4:6) I'm going to heed that. God has given me some great talents and gifts and I know that in Him nothing is impossible.

Today is a busy day of packing, washing the walls in my room that will be painted next week and more packing. I am going to draw on His strength this week, and I will read His Word to give me life!

John 5:24 "I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.

Love is spoken here

Yesterday I was made well aware of how important our witness is. I was thinking about so many things and how at the end of the day, I want to be more like Him.

I've heard it said 'preach the gospel everywhere you go, use words only when necessary'.

Our witness speaks volumes, doesn't it? And I'm not saying we need to be perfect, because if we were perfect we wouldn't need Jesus, and OH HOW WE NEED HIM!!!! But in all things, above all else, in the chaos, in the stress, in the hurt. Love. Let love be your witness.

No saying mean things in a funny way.
No saying mean things.
Speaking love everywhere we go. Especially when its hard.

We are about to leave on the Detroit Mission Trip. I have a big sign that says 'Love is spoken here'. I want that to be remembered.

It says in Eph 4:29:
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

What if everytime someone said something bad about someone (true or not) we didn't stand there, we didn't jump on the band wagon, what if for every negative thing someone said, we said 2 or 3 OR 5 positive things about someone. What if we truly spoke life.

what if we remembered that garbage in will produce garbage out? What if we only built up so that people would stand so tall that we would accidently mistake them for skyscrapers?

What if we lived by the phrase 'love is spoken here' and lived it in words and in actions?

Who is God to you?

Its been a long week (and its only Tuesday) and I came across something that I’ve had for a long time, one of those things that you never want to loss sight of, is who He is. And He is so much. I heard on the book on CD ‘Crazy Love’ that if we try to think about how Big God is, its like trying to put the ocean in a pop can. I can’t remember exactly but hopefully you get the point.

Being that I live in the world but I am not of the world, it is easy to remember where God rescued me from. A self centered woman who was a big fat mess.

In each one of these things that Jesus is, I don’t think I can wrap my arms or mind about how/who He is with each word, and sometimes I am in awe and its paralyzing about how big He is, and the craziest thing is that He loves me! He cares enough about me to grab a hold of me and my heart and makes a beautiful flower out of a prickly weed.

Its amazing.

As I sit here, I could just cry in pure joy about His goodness. He is the good in all things. When there is so much chaos in my head, He is good. When its LOUD!! He is good, when it’s quiet, He is good, when there is a storm, He is good, when the seas are quiet, He is good.

He is good in all things.
