Feelings are Not Facts.

Our feelings. 

Are they valid? 

Are they something to rule our lives? 

Are they something that should guide our decisions?

Our feelings can change at the drop of a hat, tune of a song or embrace of a friend. So can we even trust our own feelings if they are so quickly changing?

Be an Expert in the Good of Your Husband.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Our words. Our thoughts. Our feelings. Our emotions. They can all be directed toward negative or positive. We each go through our own seasons of being in a valley or hard spot. Including our husbands. Let's be such an expert in knowing and speaking good about our husbands that the world around us would think he is super man! 

Do you know what your husband is good at? What are his talents? What are his Gifts? What does he do well at? What does he work hard at? What does he succeed in?

10 Ways to Save Money.

Who doesn't love to save money or be able to live off a smaller budget!?! Living in a household with only one income we must stay within budget. We strive to spend less than what we take in so that we could build up a savings account, even if very slowly. Yea, sure, sometimes we fail at this but we pick ourselves back up and try to do better the next time. 

God wants us to be good stewards of our money. Everything belongs to Him anyways. He blesses us with what we have. He is the one who created us with our strengths and skills to be able to work and make a living. We should honor Him with our finances.

Who is in Control?

Not I. 

Sometimes, to be completely honest, I wish I was. Proverbs 19:21

I can get full of myself and act like I'm in control. It usually comes crashing down in a comical fail, like tripping over air. I feel the need to make sure I'm protected and have everything under control in my world so I don't get hurt by others. I've learned that apparently I'm not Super Starla. Big shocker! I may feel like things will be better if done a certain way; however I'm not God. This is His universe, not mine. I didn't create this universe. I wasn't there when it was set on it's foundation. 

God is in control. God is enough.

For the Wife and Mom who is Tired of Waiting.

I've been there. Tired. Exhausted. Trying to hold it together but the frustration that you try so hard to keep a lid on boils over onto your loved ones. Immediate regret fills your heart for your lack of patience, pushing back the tears at the thought of hurting your loved ones, especially your kids. 

You apologize and try harder. 

Trying to be everything to everyone. An overwhelming schedule and "To-Do" lists that others tell you should be easy. First one up in the morning and last one to bed at night. 

Still tired. Still exhausted. The cycle continues.

Iron Sharpens Iron

Do you have that one friend that loves you where you are? No matter the mess you are in?

Someone you can call in your happy moments and share in those painful moments?
