- 5 YEARS AGO TODAY.
I remember getting the phone call 5 years ago today that my sugar levels are too low and that I will be scheduled for an emergency C section the next day.
Panic stations set in as I was about 4 weeks away from Levi's (my son) due date. The day was filled with last-minute shopping, packing, nursery preparing and then finally the night time fell and we went for supper - Then like a TON of bricks, it hit me - Tomorrow I would not only say hello to Levi but I would also Say goodbye to Tiggy, my sweet beautiful daughter.
Many of you know that Levi was a twin and that Tiggy fell asleep forever at 16 weeks. So although she shares a birthday with her brother, I will always celebrate her life as well.
I haven't spoken much about my brand new tattoo ( ok I only have 1 ) but The butterfly in front of Levi name is for Tiggy, To represent that she lives with us and always will be part of Levi and I.
I would give anything for her to be here celebrating her 5th birthday but she will always live on in my heart and will NEVER be forgotten - Happy Birthday sweet angel, today my post is for you!!!
A huge thank you to @tattoo_art_foxtini for bringing my tattoo to life SO beautifully just 2 months ago. You are so talented!

- And just like that, I've lost my wisdom. On a scale of 1-10, my pain rating is now at around 3. Gotta love morphine!! My face is numb and my mouth is full of blood.

- A powerful reminder today and everyday!
We all have trials AND testimonies 🙏 I’m not talking about the little things, I’m talking about the ‘trials’ ~ the single parents ~ the parents who buried a child
~ the spouse that cheated and/or continues to do so
~ the medical diagnosis ~ the addictions of a loved one ~ loved ones that aren’t saved and lost
These are examples of trials; how are we praying and trusting Gods plan? How are we showing love and compassion in these trials? Let’s make a personal connection of 🙏 prayer. We may have never had an experience with these trials, it would be easy for some to say get over it, it gets better and so on but this is where our compassion comes in. Feel it, pray through it. 🛡 How are we wearing His armor?
How about when we’ve been wronged and sorry isn’t enough. Sorry doesn’t count if you can’t back it up w repentance. 🙏 not one of us is more righteous than the other ~ we should be walking in repentance daily
If we don’t have the conviction and repentance in our hearts, something is wrong and dark.
Even if we don’t want to see that person again, How are we reconciling it ?
Let’s have a heart of compassion and real peace in all trials, in that is where we will find our testimonies 🙏
Recognize our ground, feel it and be humble.
We must recognize the ground and align in His word.
Gods word tells us we are to be ‘shrewd as snakes and gentle as doves’ ~ we must also remember that where we are ‘not welcomed, unheard and disrespected, we are to leave’. ~ know your circle, your trusted prayer partners.
Know that it is okay to ‘out grow’ some people.
🌱 growth comes at different times for people 🌱meaningful conversations will become the norm 🌱 goals are set higher 🌱 compassion, love, joy, peace, kindness become the necessity 🌱 jealous and competition are not a factor 🌱 staying focused on Christ is a daily routine 🌱speak life and love and gratitude into all things .
