My life, my story. My life for His glory.

Worth Reading

Excellent article and great reminder that we need to “be the church” and that when we live our lives for Christ people will be drawn to Him by the love that we show others.


This morning I was in bed, tired and hurting and watching my youngest, Decker zoom around my room doing his usual silly antics and loving on me. I thought to myself that I could watch him just be his wild, lovable self all morning…and then I kicked him out of my room. Only kidding. 😉 Given that I often am forced by pain to spend large amounts of time resting in my bed, Decker has spent most of his three years of life, hanging out with me in my room or on my bed. He never tires of running into my room yelling “mommy’s awake” the very moment that he hears me drag myself out of bed to get my meds. He flips around my bed climbing all around me and excitedly chatting about whatever imaginary character he has decided to be that day. Unreasonably smart, he tells me stories of all the morning adventures that I have missed. He adores me even at my grumpiest and is always the loveable little sparkplug that I need to start my day. Decker Bryant–God made you especially just for me and I am so thankful for my busiest, challenging, and amazing boy. God has big plans for you and I can’t wait to see them come in to fruition.

True Beauty

When I looked into the mirror of the world I saw, 

Only imperfections and my every flaw.

Never achieving or believing the worth of who I was, 
Felt a failure who was broken, and a worthless cause.
Finding fault with every blemish, every broken part,
Ugly thoughts that skewered my life’s most damaged heart.
I could never measure up to others though I tried so hard.
How had I been dealt the hand with the losing card?
When I looked through the world’s image I was told a lie,
Told that my imperfections made me up inside.
The inside and the outside were at total odds,
Until I looked into the mirror of the eyes of God.
In Him I saw the beauty in a heart repaired.
In Him I saw the beauty in my graying hair.
There is beauty in the wrinkles and their stories told,
Drawing lines across my face as their many tales unfold.
There is beauty in my laughter as my heart finds joys.
There is beauty in the growth marks of my girls and boys.
God created me so perfectly to do His will. 
It is through Him and His purpose that I feel fulfilled.
Where I had felt a failure, I had been perfect made.
Long before I gave my heart to the One that saved.
He had created me with beauty, I had never known,
Until I looked into Christ’s mirror and saw the image as my own.
The mirror of the world will always tell you lies.
Turn your heart toward the image in your Father’s eyes.
