In celebration of our upcoming 10 year Anniversary, we stayed at the Sandals Royal Bahamian, an all-inclusive adult couples-only resort in Nassau.

We spent the days on the beach or at one of the two main resort pools. The Manor Pool was for relaxing and the Windsor Pool was for fun!

Night 1 was on the private island, Sandals Cay. We took a ferry boat over to it for the Island Beach Party with a great dinner, games, entertainment & a beach bonfire. What a fun night!

Night 2 was a Mediterranean Buffet at Spices followed by  a romantic stroll on the beach  and watching the beautiful sunset.

We ate lunch at the Royal Cafe after spending the day lounging in the Manor Pool. What a beautiful view before us of the main beach and the pier.

The 3rd evening we had a perfect spot in the big red couches in front of the fire pits. A live band came and couples danced in the sand. We finished the night with new friends at Cricketer's Pub.
The last day we had our Vow Renewal Ceremony on the beach.
It was just like a wedding ceremony with a preacher, photographer and everything.
What a romantic moment that I'll never forget.
We got a wedding cake and champagne in a gazebo in the beautiful gardens. We had our "honeymoon" dinner at Kimono's. It was like the Japanese steakhouses back home that I love!

And everything has changed

I find it so hard to put this into words because it's so big, but I can try to sum it up by saying The Unedited Retreat pricked my heart & put me in a posture to truly hear from the Lord. And I am so grateful. My testimony begins last year at Pine Cove Family Camp when a verse struck me, hard. - Gal 2:20. Not that I hadn't heard it before but that maybe I felt it deeper. 
“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭2:20‬ ‭ESV‬‬
No life of my own? Had I really been living that way? Complete surrender? I started "trying harder" after that.

I attended another Unedited Movement event in the fall with my eternity-friends. 😊 I came home & begged Mike to go with me to visit our Pastor. By God's grace my heart was dug up from where it had been buried under a moun…

The Chapter I Would've Chosen to Skip

Looking back on 2017 I find that the month of October just doesn't fit. It's in it's own category. It doesn't fit into my life..and maybe that's the point.
I started PT this week and had to start from the beginning and tell the whole story. So I thought I'd document it before I forget the details, before I lose the story.
On October 3rd I had a pretty minor procedure done in outpatient surgery. The next day back home and rested I was feeling great. Friends visited and I was sure I would be recovered in no time. That afternoon I loaded my kids up in the car commenting on how wore out and achy I felt and thinking I've overdone it and probably should've taken a nap. By the time I got to town dropping one kid off and headed to my next location I began to feel like my skin was burning and I was struggling to drive. I got to our gym and lay down in the lounge. I was shaking and crying and curled up in a ball by this point. My husband came and said he was taki…

The Problem is..

Every problem is rooted in sin.The problem actually IS sin. Whether it’s their sin, your sin, it’s all sin and it’s at the foundation of every conflict, hurt feeling, misunderstanding, and unloving act. Sin is our problem. It’s your problem.
Do you feel something in you that wants to flee right now? What if I said this to your face? Would you receive it?
It is in our nature to fight against it. We seem to want to point fingers, blame’s not us, it’s them. We have no sin, right? Of course not. Most people will admit that they are a sinner, but they will not own up to their actual sins. Instead we justify it, make light of it, try to explain it away. We call it a short-coming or maybe just a mistake. And everyone makes mistakes.
Why are we so adamant to deny our sin? Satan is the Father of lies
I just listened to a John Bevere video clip explaining that Hell was created for Satan not for man. It was a place for him & his angels. So he is out to deceive and mislead as…
