Standing in truth

I don't even know where to start or how to start this blog. I have a million things running though my mind. I'm frustrated, disgusted, sad and disappointed. I'm a very passionate person as y'all know. I hate politics and try to stay out of them but I can't ignore this one. California's Prop 8 to protect marriage between a man and a woman. I voted YES to keep it between a man and a woman. I voted TWICE, why? Because the first time riots broke out and people whined until it went back to court only for a liberal judge to overturn what the people had already spoken! We voted a second time and again it passed and again a judge has overturned it. Remind me again why I vote?! Where are my rights!? Equality, really?! So frustration is there and I am literally disgusted at people comments towards my view. You can call me a Jesus freak, you can call me a Christian who is ignorant, you can call me a naysayer....call me whatever you want. I DON'T CARE! I've heard it all today and you know what, it makes my eyes open up even more to see how disgusting this world is. It is a fallen place. God said it would be. If this world were perfect why would we need Him? People, I am not backing down. I have read the Word of God....it is real and there will come a day when every single person has to bow their knee before the Lord and we will be judged. Judge me, call me a Jesus freak. I am one. I love the Lord and I fear Him. I will not conform to the sins of this world to be "accepted". And by saying that in no way means that I don't sin. I sin daily but I will not fall into the lies that the world has made so many people believe. My heart is literally grieving for those who are so lost and so blind. I understand that many of those people will never realize how lost they are until their day comes and it makes me sick. How I long for all of those I know and love to see the truth and to live by it. I don't care what the world thinks of me. I'm not here to be like everyone else. I'm here to be a light to this dark and dying world because we ALL need a Savior and I will stand firm and stand for Him until the day the Lord comes to take me home.

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

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…

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…
