Monthly Reflections | February

What I'm currently up to in life and on the blog. #currently #takingstock #monthlyreflections

I don't know about you, but February has flown by.  I feel like we only just started the month and here we are at the end already.  It's been a month of self-reflection for me, as I've done a lot of evaluating where I am and where I want to be.  In February, I put some steps into play to make my life a little more efficient.  I've also prepared for a lot of new creative endeavors in the month of March, so there are a lot of exciting things to come this spring.

Blaming God for Tragedies

Keeping the faith even in our darkest moments - Blaming God for Tragedies - A Simpler Grace

"Pain is the soil where the deepest kind of faith in God grows."  - Sarah Sumner 
via 'Where is God in Tragedy', Relevant Magazine.

Throughout the seasons in your life, you are bound to endure some form of tragedy, in one way or another. These events could be anything from being involved in a serious accident to losing someone close to you. No one ever wants to think about these things happening for fear of jinxing themselves, but they happen every day and to everyone. I am no stranger to tragedy. Today I'm here to share a story of pain, anger, revenge, and understanding.

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day weekend.  Mine was quiet, but that's exactly how I like it.  :)

Hello and happy Monday!  Today I'm feeling super motivated to get things done after a tough last week and a long weekend.  I love waking up with a really long to-do list and actually having the gumption to tackle it!  Don't you?

It's been a tough week. My nephew has been sick and has been running a fever and my sister had to take him to the ER early Saturday morning.  We also suffered a loss when we found out that one of my brothers had lost his unborn child as a result of a miscarriage.
