Day 50 of 72 : new blog coming & naked juice

good evening I type the fan is blowing on my feet.  It feels so good with this heat wave we've been having.  I am thankful for air conditioning.  truly!   I am feeling like a school girl with a secret lately. I've been MIA and I apologize for not being able to visit as much but soon.

I'm working on a new blog.  I'm often torn between posting about everyday life and my love story with God...SO...two blogs.  The House of Belonging will be about our everyday ( messy ) life, projects,decor and being the momma of 5 kiddos and grandmama to 3.

A Crushed Sparrow (more info coming ) will be a blog where I acknowledge my brokenness..being crushed in life and how God has taken ahold of me and through life's circumstances, my choices and His grace He is moulding my wings to fly once again.  To sing the song that He has given me and in so doing make this a place where you can know someone else understandsA place to be reminded of how much God loves us and it is this love that we need...not the constant judgements we pour on ourselves.   My heart prayer is that in me chronicling my my taking of my mask that others will learn from my mistakes and victories as I seek and pray for Him to revive my heart to serve Him wholeheartedly...

and I would love for you to come along.  Your my friends.  I look forward to sitting with you and hearing your story.  What is really behind the mask that you wear.  This will be my place where I am raw, real and that makes some uncomfortableand that's ok.  This is me..who I am and I will not be different because it makes some uncomfortable and they just want a feel good post:)  I know there are many other women like me.  We all look different but inside we are much the same.  My heart is to get past that and get to the story of what makes/or made me ME and you YOU.

(these are the 12 girls in Grace & Madi's teepee...)

SO girls...I miss ya and I will be around soon.  I am opening an Etsy store also.  Stay tuned!  If I'm going to go it alone in the future I gotta start thinking about a job right?:)  I couldn't do it without any of you. Your prayers have been the wind beneath my wings and I know that one day I will be soaring high...and so will you.

One last thing...sticky and suffocating weather calls me back to drinking Naked are my two favs!
