Eternity....forever.

My heart was broken this weekend seeing some of my own family members who don't know the Lord and want nothing to do with Him. I really don't have words except I will not stop praying for them and for their hearts and their eyes to be opened to the truth. I pray that they will come to know the truth before their day of judgement comes. Do you realize that if you deny God and His Word, you will be separated from Him for eternity? Even if you are a nice person who does good things! The moment you die is your moment of judgement, you will meet God face to face and if you have denied Him He will separate you from spending eternity with Him and send you into Hell for eternity. Eternity is forever! There is a verse in Matthew 13:42 that describes hell as this "a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." Picture yourself on the hottest day you've ever experienced, in the most pain you have ever felt, and having your face slammed against a block wall constantly because you are so miserable. That is real! And, you will never be one day closer to the end. I don't mean to be harsh but I am not about to downplay or sugar coat something that is so real and so important. Friends, this is reality and we need to turn from our selfish and evil ways and get on our knees before the Lord and commit our life to Him! This life here on Earth is not about us in case you were wondering. We are here to serve others and to share the Love of Christ with them. It doesn't matter if we are rich or poor, fat or skinny, smart or not....God has you on this Earth for a reason and that is to serve Him by serving others. Put yourself aside for a day and try it. I'm sure some people might label me as a "Jesus freak" and that's ok. I would not put myself in that category but I definitely am not ashamed to say that I love God and believe in Him with all my heart and my desire is to serve Him each and every day. I have been learning so much this past month about the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I can't help it but want to share. I could go on and on but I don't need to. If you have heard the Word of God, which you have if you are reading this blog then you will account for that when your time comes and you meet the Lord face to face. Have you accepted His truth or have you denied it? If you were to die tonight, where will you be spending eternity?

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!

10 years..

Friends. 
It's been 10 years since I created southernatheart. 
10 whole years. 
I remember sitting in our little cottage in Southern California logging in and creating this blog like it was yesterday. 
I've always had a passion to write.  I have piles of journals from my teen years and early 20s.  Writing has been and still is therapeutic for my soul.  Whether it's pen to paper in a journal, a blog post or like the most recent years a post on Instagram.  It's how I express myself and my thoughts best.  Documenting life through the good times and hard. 

These past three years I've simply ignored my blog because I lost the desire and all the extra time to sit and write. 
Something stirred inside me recently and that was to log back in and get this thing going again. 
I don't know what it's going to look like, nor can I tell you what to expect here but we'll figure that out as we go. 
Exciting things are happening I expect this blog along with Instagram to be part of t…
