Are You Speaking Life Or Death

                                                          


                   I have even thinking a lot about words lately.How they impact us not just in the moment. Also it's effects of them in the future. 

                    I believe we are very guilty of speaking our minds in the heat of the moment. We opened our mouth and spewed whatever we thought was right at the moment. Whether it was right or wrong. Said in love or anger. However no matter what those words settle in the heart to whomever they were shared with. They either caused a crater of hurt or stitched with love.

     I went to my Daddy about these things. I know His Word has some things to say about the tongue. 

        Proverbs 18:21 Tells us the power of life and death are in the tongue

Proverbs 10:32 tells us our lips know what is fitting.

The lips of the righteous know what is fitting, but the mouth of the wicked only what is perverse” 

Proverbs 10:31 tells us our lips can bring forth wisdom.

The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom, but a perverse tongue will be cut out” (verse 31).  

This is only a few scriptures on the tongue. However what power such a little part of my body has. It clearly teaches me that my words can bring much hurt or much good!  I took sometime to consider my words. Over time I grown leaps and bounds in the area. I can remember a time in my life I would just say what hit my mind not thinking what long term effects of my words would have on someone else! I now try with all my might to think before I speak words. Let me give you a illustration I have used many time in our children's ministries! 

   Our words are like toothpaste. Once I have squirted it out I am not put it back in the tube! Our words are the same! I can not take it back. They are out there good or bad.

      Our words have a negative and a positive effect on our lives. A good example of this, is if someone has always told you were fat and need to lose weight. No matter how small we become when we look in the mirror those words will always be there. Making us feel that I will never lose enough weight to be considered skinny. Now if you have been told you are beautiful over and over by those around you. When you look in the mirror you will be confident and not feel rejected but accepted. No matter what size you are! 

            Today though we live in a much different world than what I was raised with. Used to be if we wanted to get a mass message out with word good or bad in school. We would write a note and spread that not to everyone we possibly could. Now once that would be how a rumor  would begin and the social networking would begin! Eventually the rumor would make it to the person it was about! Good or bad those words just affected that person. Those words either spoke life or death! 

          Let's say the rumor was this .... I think Shellie's hair is a hot mess today! I don't know what ever made her think she should wear Minnie mouse buns at her age. She needs to dress and act like an adult not a child. 

     When I would hear that people thought of me, I would constantly think that no matter how I wore my hair or the clothes I decided to wear that day. I would think people were judging me and chances are I would never wear my hair that way again,

Now what it this was what was said... I love how Shellie is confident in herself. That she rocks her Minnie buns with her princess shirt and tutu!

  Now when I get dressed the next day and fix my hair. I am gonna feel confident in my appearance.

I am not going to be worried people are making fun of me for being me. 

    Today however things has changed so much! We now have cell phones we can text to send a message, we can email, and we have the mighty social media. Post pictures and give a sense of a perfect life. Or to used to make someone they are not good enough to have been included. These ways give us away to say things we want in a boldness. Often more times than not we are bold in a harsh way not in a way of speaking life. The screen gives us a sense of empowerment. We sometimes become a social bully. Sometimes we don't intend for that to happen it just does. We kinda feel like well if everyone else is giving their opinion theirs should be heard as well. Or instead of speaking like a sponge I absorbed your comments thinking they were meant for me!

 Please don't take me wrong it's okay to think for yourself and have a opinion. It does not mean I need to tell it outloud. The Bible says the power of life and death lies in our tongue.

                                        


      Before I speak or type anything I need ask myself a few things. Is it needed, is it kind, it hurtful or helpful. Here is a biggie! Would I say these things in person the same way? If the answer is no to any of these we should not say or type them. We shouldn't post things that makes others feel less than they are in their social group!

            We teach our children to be kind, not to be a bully,and to be the person God made them to be.Why are we not practicing those very things. In our world today there's so many things going on that spark the temptation to insert our opinion.

   We often put on a mask and become a totally different person than you portray in person. As if we have another personality. This person who becomes invincible online is the exact opposite in person when we are in a crowd of people. We are respectful and hold back our opinions. Most likely because someone you care about is right there with you, there is nothing worth saying to hurt the one I care about! Friend it's the same way when we are on social media. Those people we love and would never say anything to hurt them. Are right there on social media, hearing about a text or email. That just spoke death over them. This time of year for this year is and wonderful time to use politics for example! Everyone has an opinion! All of think that one or the other would be better to run out country than the other! Now using that as my example. At the end of the day God is gonna place the man he wants there in there. There is no reason for me to bash someone I love because they think the person opposite of them should be in office. Their choice should not make me spew comments, post, or gifs,that ever make them feel that I am speaking to them and making them feel like I do not love them. I am one way online and another in front of them. That is not what God intended for us!

    Guys social media can be used for so many wonderful ways of encouragement! It be used to speak life and wisdom. It should not be used to speak death. Something that my amazing husband has been teaching in his G.A.I.N.S Leaders course. Is that is we let negativity be absorbed it becomes an extension of who we are. We begin to compare and kill the things God has placed in you! We have let the power of the tongue steal the unique person God created you and I to be! 

Dolly Parton said it best when she said... "Find out who you are and do it on purpose." I want to add on and off the screen! 

Let's choose today to use our words to grow wisdom and love! Not negativity and hate.

 Think of the testimony's we would hear of God's Grace and love! If people knew they would be hated and killed with negativity because we may be uncomfortable. Our story is all different that is what makes us special!  

Ask yourself in closing are you proud of your on screen words?If not it's never too late change them!  If your being influenced by others maybe you need to make the decision to unfriend people who feed negativity. It's okay to do that you owe no one a explanation of why you are choosing to better you!

I know this may not be my most popular post! God laid this on my heart last Monday! It has taken me a week to get it typed out because I wanted to make sure I was not caught up in the negativity of the online world but rather sharing life and positivity! 

    I can't thank you enough for sharing a moment of your time with me today! I can not begin to explain how much that means to me!

                  Prayerfully Yours ~Shellie~

Good Morning World

                                                           


 

                There I something very special about the quiet of the early morning hours. when the sun has yet to rise and all around you is still sleeping. The birds has not even woken with their songs of praise. 

I recently began what I like to call brain dumping before going to sleep at night. This is a type of journaling about my day without a structured writing. I began this to quiet my mind at night. When I was unable to sleep last night. I decided this morning it was time to get up and try to get a few things accomplished. Blogging was one of those things on that list. As I was in my kitchen pouring some Sprite to chase away the nausea. I was reminded of the proverbs 31 woman. The Bible spoke of her rising up early and cooking for her family... I pondered on this thought... Due to the fact that not everyone in my home likes to eat breakfast. I wonder though could that thought go a little further. Feeding can be more than physically feeding them as well! We need more than physical food to begin our day. We need to be spiritually fed as well. We should begin each day with Jesus. We should feed our family not just food but we should feed their hearts as well by planting spiritually as well. I know Mom I can hear the deep sigh of your heart as you read this and you think oh Shellie I can add not one more thing to my morning to do list before I send my family off for the day, or as you head to work, or perhaps you begin your homeschool day. As I pondered on this, I prayed and asked my Daddy what are some ways that any schedule can do this and get out the door with out feeling overwhelmed. One thing particular stuck out in my mind! 

     We all go out the same door! Whether you are headed to the car to head to work, out the school bus, or even just to take the dog out! 

       One of the easiest way to make sure scripture is one of the first things your loved ones reads! Place a index card with scripture on the door where they will see it Every time they open the door! You can change this daily or leave it up and change it weekly and challenge your family to memorize the verse by the end of the week! The change it every Saturday! You may think why not Sunday? Well.... Because Sunday is hard enough without adding one more thing! If you make it apart of your Saturday routine it will become apart of you Saturday flow! Pray about the scripture you post so you know if it is something that will also minister to our hearts and souls through the week! 


We can also play praise and worship music in our home as we your getting ready to start your day! Play it in your car set the mood for where ever your going! When we choose to start or day with our Daddy we can't go wrong. 

                Also when we start to train our children to do these things now! They will take these things into their adult life! Even if your kids are grown it's never to late to fill your heart with God's word or start your day off with Him! I can't imagine anyone else I want to invite to spend the day with me as Jesus!

            As it is really early in the morning for me and my lack of sleep is catching up already. I am gonna go get some coffee and turn some praise and worship music on Pandora and plug my ears up with my earbuds! Give Jesus the  most of my morning then go take a nap so I can conquer today!  Praying for you and your family this week! Stay safe and healthy my friends! 

               Prayerfully Yours ~Shellie~

Chapter Forty- Four

                                                         

       Forty-four! Wow how can that even be. Some days it seems like yesterday I got married. Started a family of my own. Here forty-four years has passed and I will be a grandma twice over by November. Some people dread the aging process and the growing old. I on the other hand embrace the years that I am allowed to have and cherish. I actually look forward to gray hair. It's a sign I have been here long enough for that change to be embraced! There has been multiple times in this girls life that I was very unsure I would see a Birthday again. The past four years has proven that more times than not. However their is nothing like the looking back process and seeing your Abba's hands scoop you up and carry you from one moment to the next. Reminding you the story isn't over. I have a story to tell and it won't be easy to share. I have made myself a promise it would be in book form before I am forty-five. You see I have always said all the hurt would be worth it if my story saves just one person from the horror I have encountered! It's time. Chapter thirty three has been a hard year for me. In more ways than one. Sometimes the battles we fight inside alone are far harder than the ones others can look on and see.

        As my Daddy veins chapter forty-four of my life today! I celebrate with joy and thanksgiving, There is not much I would change in my life at all and these past four years are one of them. I have grown closer to my Daddy and see Him work in miracles in more than one! He has sent us blessings we would never change! They have brought so much joy! 

                                       


                    So today as I celebrate turning 44 years old with my family! I will celebrate all the wonderful things to come and stories that will be told as we move to the next chapter before me!

     Thank you for stopping by! For sharing part of my day with me! I am honored you shared some of your precious time with me today! I am praying you have a wonderful week to come! 

                        Prayerfully Yours ~Shellie ~

It's Time To Save Our Children

                   

                                   


This will not be a popularity blog. I am well prepared for it. I am a sexual abuse survivor. I was abused by someone who should have loved and protected me! Instead they stole my voice, my trust, and parts of my childhood! At times that person still steals sleep because he haunts me there. What is wrong with our country? Why are we standing back and not using our voices to protect what should be most precious to us, our children! It is time that we bring what was taught not to talk about to the table and give it voice. Sexual abuse or sexual exploitation of any kind to a child or a teen. We have to quit turning a blind eye. We have to have ears that listen and voices that speak out when we see something is seriously wrong! If we suspicion something is wrong we investigate and find out!

     Wake up Momma's we must protect our babies!My heart is disgusted when I turn on the t.v and little girls are dressed like little teenagers. Thing is it's not just on t.v it's in our homes. We buy the clothes because they want to fit in! Ladies we were not born to fit in we were born to stand out! That does not mean I have to be dressed sexy in order to do that! My heart is broken everything I see a little girl dressed like that when God knows as well as I do she should be dressed in some kind of Disney Princess shirt. Singing let it go to top of her lungs. Not worried about not looking cool or uncool because they play dolls! See though here is another problem little girls are not the only ones affected by this our little boys are as well and there is no excuse for it! They feel like they have to be buff and know about sex and joke about it because it makes him look cool. We tell our girls when someone grabs their behind or gropes them. Boys will be boys and make it sound like it is okay! No, there are two problems here! Boys should be taught that girls are to be held with the upmost respect and girls should be taught to do the same with boys.There are grave consequences for our actions if we force our self on someone of either sex. We should be teaching our girls to do the same! 

          I have seen on the news,instagram,and facebook. All about the child sex trafficking how hundreds of children are being rescued! I want to know why we are just now looking for the why I have we not heard of their missing reports? Why was it so easy for them to be obtained.My dad was who abused me, he was a man of many mask. He was mixed up in some pretty horrible things. During many talks about me being a bad girl he was gonna teach me how to be a Daddy's girl. He told me of how boys and girls were abducted every year especially around October. They would be kidnapped from the south and sent to the north, north to the south, east to the west, and west to the east. He reminded me more than once he could arrange for me to be one of those children. Out of fear I did not tell of my abuse till I was married.

I want to speak out now as we are being made aware of laws to be voted on for pedophilia to be made legal! For the legal age of consent to be 12yrs old! I want you to think about that 12! I am our children's church administrator at our church and the kids stay with me till they turn 13! I hear them talking and say boys are gross one Sunday and cute the next! I want to ask you Moms something do you want it to be okay for a 50 year old man to identify as a 12 year old and have sex with your daughter? Mom how about you would you like some 40 something woman to identify as 12 and have sex with your son? Because this a two street here this isn't just about girls being abused! It's boys and girls!

Our children are being groomed right up under our eyes and we are sleeping through it. Girls and boys are like twerking making sexually explicit dance videos on tic toc and all the while we think awe they are just having fun! How about the sex rooms on Roblox ? Guess what they are being approached by adults pretending to be kids! Asking for pictures of your child! Guess what they are sending them! Because that seems like new cool thing everyone is doing! So I should do it to! Momma's it's time you take the computer, phones, and tablets ask for passwords and invade your child's privacy! Because it may be the very thing that saves their life. Remember when I mentioned children being taken? Well I promise it's not to send them to loving people who care about them. No it is to people who use them in the sex trade they are auctioned off to the highest bidder. They are given drugs and they become addicts! When they are done with them they kill them and throw them out like this mornings trash.

  That is they are lucky enough to be stolen for that reason because there is a darker reason! Satanism is real and they kidnap for rituals they are raped and sacrificed and endure a grueling death all in the name of satan.

 It's time we take our children back! Teach them it's okay to be kids and play. It's okay not to want to date. Teach both to dress modestly. It's not okay for little girls and teenagers to be dressing sexy! Please reach them how to dress classy! 

    Teach your child it's not okay to keep a secret for an adult! If someone ask them to, they need to come straight to you and tell you the secret! Teach them it is safe for them to come tell you anything thing no matter how scary they will not get in trouble it is okay they are safe! As your child if someone has touched them! Teach them the areas no one should touch unless it is them or a Dr after a certain age. Teach them to clean themselves as quickly after potty training! Teach them they way someone should clean them and no other touches should be involved. I know some of this sounds extreme! Trust me it's not! It's time to save our children! To take our homes back! More times than not a child is abused by a family member or a family friend whom you trust. he abuser grooms your child to think it okay! It's not okay to take pictures of little kids being abused and posting it all over the internet as pornography! For people to watch and get pleasure from! It's not okay to let our kids to watch pornography boys and girls alike and say oh it's just a part of growing up everyone does it! Is that how you want them to think they should have sex with their spouses when they get married? Lord I hope not! Maybe I am to much of

 a romantic....

      Sexual abuse and sexual exploitation have serious repercussions!  The damage is often so bad that it leads to suicide. Because they think they did something wrong for Uncle so and so to touch them that way or Aunt Sally to come on to you teenage boy and touch him and make him think of her in ways he knows he shouldn't so he isn't sure why he's so messed up! Or a Daddy who should be your hero steals everything beautiful from you! This abuse leaves deep scars that are often hard to heal. You don't truly understand till you have held that abuse victim when they wake up screaming in the middle of the night because they are reliving it in their sleep, or the smell of someone in the store caused them to have a flashback of the man who tried to grab them and they no longer feel safe, or how about when she marries the man of her dreams and he goes to make love to her the way God intended him to love his wife and she cowers away and cries and can not even be touched. When your son can not stand to look at himself in the mirror because he thinks something wrong with him for male family friend to think it was okay to touch him and now he's confused! 

     Momma's I want you to know I write this out of love, concern, and personal experience. We have the power to protect our homes! TO PROTECT   OUR CHILDREN! They are gifts not sexual toys. Anyone who can look at a four year old and become aroused is beyond sick!    

We can turn this around and save them!

Have all social media passwords! Look through their phones. If they don't have teen in their age the don't need a phone. Supervise internet and game use. 

Know who they are spending time with. Ask questions about what they did. If your child is uncomfortable sound someone there is a reason! ASK! You are not going to know most likely if you don't. remind them they are safe and will be safe if they tell! 

Dress our kids as kids, teach them to act their age! Encourage them to play and watch shows that encourage imagination and for them to act their age. Don't let them watch something just because Suzie's Momma let's her. Teach them the same rules apply a even if they are at a friend's house. Have consequences for breaking rules. After all we are their parents we are suppose to keep them safe. If you don't like someone they are playing with because of their behaviour. Don't let them hang out. It's okay to set boundaries for or kids and make them stay with in them. I work with kids and can not believe what they tell me they hear at school about sex. Teach your child that sex is meant for adults who are married. If they are teens it's time for hard conversations like are you ready to become a parent! Because it only takes one time! After all that is how God intended for sex to be between husband and wife! Teach them it's okay for them to ask you questions about sex. It should be you they come to.

Make it clear no one should touch them where their bathing suit covers. teach good touch base touch. As soon as they are sold enough to understand!

After all they want to pass a law where they want the age of consent to be four years old! Can you imagine what this would do to a four year old physically and mentally?

If your a survivor speak out! It's time we come out of the shadows and tell our stories so it's not taboo! When we speak out we make it feel safer for them to come forward! When they feel safer we can put a stop to the abuse! We make it clear under no circumstances are our children for sale,they are not sex toys for your sick pleasure, and we do not want laws that say this is okay instead we want laws that take your life for stealing thiers!

Please pray for the safety of our children! Let's come together and be bold and strong and say no more sex trade, not more sexual exploitation for child porn or grooming, no more sexualizing children in movies acting like adults, no more hiding the abuser in our families or close friend circles! 

The Bible clearly says that is better for you to fasten a milestone about your neck and drown than to hurt one of His little children! 

Matthew 18:6

Thank you for stopping by and letting me share my heart. Which was really not easy to do! It is however time to come out of the dark as shine light into the dark places to ensure no one else has to go through what I have!

Seasons of Change


 I am not sure about you.... I am ready for the cooler days of fall. All the things that it ushers in. For me it means I will soon be putting up my Christmas tree!

One of the things I love the most. I love the gleam of Christmas lights. While all snuggled up in a blanket. This year will even be even more fun. Grandbabies make everything more exciting!

However before I jump to far ahead of myself and wish important time away.

September has arrived in all of her beautiful glory! I will celebrate my 44th Birthday on the 26th. I am so blessed for every second I spend on this earth! It's like the weather knew I needed a touch of fall to usher her in! The temperatures have been cooler with a hint of the fall crispness.

I truly do hope that it last and we have a beautiful leaf changing! That displays all of God's creativity!

I have not been feeling well so I have been spending some time reading lately. I ordered the Little House On The Prairie series! 

I have to chuckle at the thought of this! Because as  a little girl I would have rather died than watched the little house show! My sister and I actually had some really nasty arguments because little house and duck tales came on at the same time! 

Now I love the time period and I am intrigued by the books and their way of life!

I am more than half way through the Little House In The Big Woods!

I am intrigued by the simplicity but truly fascinating lives! 

In some ways they had it all and just didn't realized it!    

However I am quite thankful for indoor plumbing!
 I love the verse below!

My life has taught me so much about the season of change. I believe that is why I can accept the changes the pandemic has brought so much easier than others 
           You must choose to find joy and be thankful rather than pine for things that have long passed. 
Some may say that sounds rather cold. I don't mean for it to. I have just learned that there is a beginning and an end to all things good or bad. How we choose to deal with them will affect how we handle the change that comes long with it.
 I actually love the slower pace of life. I do however miss church,visiting family, friends, and going to the store.... I was reminded through the little house book all of those things were not always there or easily accessible. Things have came kinda full circle of you look at history!
 
     Ecclesiastes says there is a time for all things. For me it is a time of rest and healing.Not in the way that most think. Healing sometimes is for the soul and when the soul heals come a rest that brings along a strong peace for your heart.
    It has taken me a little bit to see that was something that was taking place! I am glad I did though! It has confirmed to me the same way my Daddy has to so many before me! He is there for us. We may not understand the whole picture right now but we will! Just think about Noah! He had never even seen rain! No wonder he thought it was crazy to build a boat! When he had never even experienced rain fall from the sky. Then imagine how crazy he must of felt when he was told to fill the ark with animals. He was trusting what he had not seen yet! Trusting his heavenly Daddy knew exactly what he was doing. I know there are so many. I have spoken too that is struggling because the life as we know it has been turned upside down. Some people want to act as nothing ever happened. Some it has caused depression and unrest. I have found myself in the curious side of things. I want so much to see what He has in-store for His people during this time.I am not sure when or what He has instore. I have believe it will be spectacular!After all He touches is truly spectacular! I have found myself longing for a time of rest and peace.For all of us including me that comes in various ways!
       As I  close today I want you to know whatever season this finds you in! You are loved and prayed for! Our Daddy In heaven loves us more than any human possibly could! Never give up when He's up to something truly amazing!
      Thank you for stopping by! I pray the rest of the week is truly wonderful! 
                  Prayerfully Yours ~Shellie~

School Days Gone Bye and a Homeschool Project

  

Oh I truly miss the smell of school supplies! My kitchen table scattered with open books and open planners.
My days of a homeschool teacher have passed but the years and memories will be ever so sweet.
I would not trade them for the world!

Oh how I loved the mornings spent doing devotions and learning side by side with my two girls!
I think I learned as much as my girls did when we spent time diving into history and days gone by. Teaching them life skills that they would carry into their own home one day.
Our first day of school was always kicked off with a field trip!
All though this Momma has hung that hat up. I would love to share some of our favorite projects  with you! Even some of our favorite books and fun things we did along the way to bring them to life! 
I want to start off by sharing one of our middle school or high school year projects!
My youngest loved dolls of some fashion and form all the way through her early high school years. So one year I came up with my own Motherhood 101. This was our own form of the baby project.Like they did in public school. All except we used our reborn dolls. Please do not feel like you need a fancy doll for this project because that is not the case! The beauty of it is you can pick and choose what you want to use and discard the rest.
Below you will find all the links you need for the project. From instructions, printables, and fun supplies to make!
If you decide to try it out! Please let me know what you thought! Be creative and have fun I know we sure did!
Thank you for stopping by today and checking out  a project my youngest daughter loved  and my shared daughters who joined us for homeschool for a few years and got in on the fun!
I am praying for you and your families school year! 
Prayerfully Yours 
~Shellie~

Thankful and Blessed

 


My heart longs for the long cool crisp days of fall! 
The Long hot summer during a pandemic is hard on anyone! Especially those of us that can not get out . So I broke out the fall decorations. In this house it looks and feels like a crisp Autumn day!
Something about the colors that show off my Daddy's creativity makes my heart warm all the more! 


Our week here has been filled with some amazing days  filled with baking. My youngest made homemade apple dumplings from my Mommas recipe! It smelled so good in here while they baked! The taste I childhood was so delightful honestly! It brought back good memories!


The next day Jody went out to get ice cream to go on top of them! Oh my.... Is all I can truly say!
I tried a new  braided bread recipe and I was not the fondest of it. Even though it wasn't my favorite I enjoyed the time in the kitchen baking along side my youngest.


We celebrated my husbands accomplishments this week! He voted for the top ten in the Author Academy for his book He released! To say I am proud of him is a understatement!

If you are interested in reading Going All In you can find it in any major bookstore also on Amazon!
 
My sweet oldest has entered into her 3rd trimester! I can not believe how fast time has flown by! Baby Ellis James as his name was announced this week! Will soon be making his appearance into this world! We are ever so excited to meet him! He will one spoiled little boy that is for sure!

All of the days that passed this week has not been easy,,,, I have not felt well the ending part of this week. I feel off I am unsure how to put it into words.
This feeling however had made me think a lot about the woman with the issue of blood, How many days she felt off and could not put into words after so much blood loss over time. She had to fight chronic fatigue.
She was ostracized from her family, friends, and worse of them all the temple. It separated her from God! Guys could you imagine 12 years of this! Not really having anyone there with you. To love and support you through the hardest and darkest days! Even on my hardest days I am surrounded by those who love me! I can go to my Daddy freely!He is always with me! I am never without Him! However when she pressed through that crowd and just reached out and touched the Hem of HIS garment! She knew right then she had been whole! Jesus knew to! He felt the power go from Him! Her faith in Him had healed her! 
Guys!!! I have cold chills as I type this! He's still that same God sometimes our healing looks different from someone else's! Does that mean we should pout and sulk? Absolutely not, I should rejoice with my brothers and sisters in all matter of healing! I often say and mean from the depths of my soul! Someone else is praying for what I have and at times even for me that is hard to imagine. Still they are! I am praying for the complete healing the woman with the issue of blood received! Even if I don't receive it on this side of heaven there will be a day! I believe it will be sooner than later that I stand in front of my Jesus and have just that!
Until then we press on for Jesus knowing that no matter what He is worthy of all my praise! 
All though I know there was a time in my life I did not know Him.... I could not imagine not knowing Him today! He loves you as much as He loves you! In this scary world we live in today is my hope and my peace! That one day there will never be days that are riddled with pain or words to express how we feel. All we will have to worry about is worshiping the one who gave everything so I could have it all! 
I can't thank you enough for stopping by to share just a few moments of your time! Time is so precious I know!
Praying for you in the week to come!
Prayerfully Yours ~Shellie~
