I have been battling this ridiculous cold / allergy issue again and it's driving me crazy. It comes and goes, and then when I think I'm finally over it, it shows up all over again and leaves me exhausted. For the last month I have had so much sinus pressure, on and off sore throat, etc. (Etc.= I'll spare you some nice details). My tension headaches have been gone for quite some time but hav...Read Full Post »

This last month has been very chaotic for reasons I'm not quite ready to announce yet. I started off feeling guilty for not sharing the "why" in this blog until I realized those were my immature, pastors wife, ways. No one taught me these ways, but myself! Being young, naiive, and terrified of having such a large title can sometimes makes you put on certain habits like...Read Full Post »

If you have followed my blogs the last few months, you know that I have battled this out of body experience that has been labeled as anxiety, or even social anxiety. It has been uncomfortable and at times, scary. If you read through my previous blog appropriately named, “un-cute life events”, you can see all the appointments I had gone to at that time. In short, I was having headaches, had a loss of energy, tempora...Read Full Post »

And there I was, right where I needed to be. Anxiety dull, but heart happy. Soul clinging to this moment and pushing all else away with every bit of strength the Lord equipped me with. Tears wanted to run wild, but I just breathed the emotion, the gratitude, in deeply. Closing my eyes, my hands pressed high, I worshipped my Jesus. My Father. My protector. My comforter. I looked over at my friend and the tears did...Read Full Post »

Trying to keep going, trying to keep moving. Don't stay still. Is it possible to feel like my head is not attatched to my body? No, just keep moving. Don't think about it. Read my Bible, pray, homeschooling, yoga, did I forget to eat? I feel happy and accomplished and yet my head is somewhere else. Why today? At least it would make more sense if it came on the hard days.

How amazing are our minds? How powerful they are! Last year if someone would have said "our minds are so powerful!" to me, the first thing I would have thought of would have been how cool it is that we think to move or to talk, and it happens! But today, after having experienced anxiety, and after going through counseling for the last couple months, I have a whole new respect for my mind. J...Read Full Post »

Proverbs 28:1 "The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion."
I woke up about a month ago and opened my Bible. This was the first verse I read. And then I read it again. I tried to read past it, but then came back to staring at it intently. Have I been acting out the wicked man's role, in a sense? Not dealing with my em...Read Full Post »

Who am I? I was a girl, but I guess I passed the 18 marker and that made me a lady? When I passed like what, 25? Did that make me a woman? Or did I become a woman when I got married? Or was it when I had my first baby? And my name is Aly, but now that I'm a wife, is that my new name? We got married when I was 19 so I still felt like one of the 'girls' but suddenly didn't feel like I fit i...Read Full Post »

Psalm 30:5 "Weeping may last for the night, but a shout of joy comes in the morning." But what if you don't allow yourself to really weep at night? Then mourning comes in the morning.
My husband and I had been married a few years and we were both itching for babies. We weren't financially solid or have all our ducks in a row, but we were young and in love an...Read Full Post »

Kids cuddling on the couch- Instagram worthy. Kissing my husband in the rain- now that's cute! My dog jumping into the ocean- that's a fun moment. Sitting in the doctors office for the 15th time in only a couple months- not so cute. I wish that was an exaggeration. Yet that's the literal number and it isn't including the chiropractic appointments. Prior to this "season" I R...Read Full Post »
