THANK YOU JESUS!!!!

My heart is FULL. My eyes are PUFFY.
I do not have the words to THANK Him.
As most of you know, I have been praying for a sweet little 6 year old girl who stole my heart last July. Her name is Kate McRae and last year she was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of brain cancer. Hopes were slim to none for a cure but we prayed...and prayed...and prayed...and we're still praying.
Precious Kate had her PET scan a couple days ago to see if there was any active cancer. I can't tell you how I've prayed for this girl along with hundreds of thousands of others who trust in the Lord. It's incredible. We have pleaded and begged the Lord to touch her with His healing hand.
Tonight, we got the news that the scan came back NEGATIVE! NO active cancer! It is dead! I have been crying for 2 hours now. Chris was so worried something was wrong when I came out to tell him the news. He too proclaimed that it is a miracle. My heart is overjoyed. I don't know when I have cried tears of joy like I am tonight. Thank you JESUS!!! He has heard our cries and has answered them. There is always that chance that it can come back but we are rebuking it in Jesus name. We are going to continue to pray for her complete healing, as if the cancer never existed! We are so thankful that the Lord is giving her more time here on earth...praying she has many more fruitful years to share here what the Lord has done in her life.
He is so good.
I could go on and on of the Lord's goodness towards us. Instead how about you take some time and reflect on the goodness and mercy He has shown towards you!!!
Check out her blog at www.prayforkate.com and you too will be crying tears of joy.
Thank you Lord. We do not deserve your love, we are so thankful...

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…
