Peace. Love. & Prayer

Chris and I just want to thank all of you who have been praying for us and sending us words of encouragement. There is nothing greater than knowing you are being prayed for. There is also no greater honor than to be able to lift a brother or a sister up in prayer! As you can imagine, Chris and I have been deep in prayer over the past few days. It got me thinking, why aren't we like this all the time?? Yes, we pray everyday for others but not like we have been praying this past week. It has really opened our eyes to how lazy we become when things seem to be going good. To be honest I feel selfish. I should be lifting others up before the Lord a lot more than I have been! I'm thankful for this reminder and it is my prayer that I will be faithful to pray for others everyday just as we are being prayed for everyday! A big prayer of ours (obviously) has been for Kate. I believe our prayers have already been answered. The peace that we have is from the Lord. There is no other way that this peace is possible. A good friend reminded me that when I feel pain from the cyst I have (which has been multiple times a day) to stop and pray for Kate's cyst. My friend is doing the same thing as she has the same cyst I have. How cool is that? Such a great reminder to just stop and pray, no matter where we are or what we are doing. Chris and I wait with great anticipation for our appointment with the doctor on Friday morning. We can't wait to see Kate again and see how she has grown! I am growing so I can only imagine how she has! :) Please be praying for us for Friday that all of our nerves and anxiousness will be gone. Please also pray for wisdom for our doctor and most of all for the cyst on her brain to be gone!!! We believe!!
"May Christ through your faith dwell in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love" - Ephesians 3:17

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. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
