Quote, Song and Thoughts of the Week | July 27

“The best kind of friend is a praying friend.”


Hello my beautiful friends and readers! ❤ I hope you all had a great week. I had a very scary and crazy one. My goodness! I’m so glad it over. Next please! Jesus help us. I thought the week before was bad… yeah, it can always get even crazier and more expensive.  If you missed my “Quote, Song and Thoughts of the Week” last week, here ya go: 

Quote, Song and Thoughts of the Week| July 20th

I have certain health problems like many of us do. However, my health anxiety makes me think of the absolute worst case scenario no matter what is going on. I have to change some things I’m doing and yes, I may have to take medicine I am afraid to take. I have no idea how my friends who have been through much worse things medically have kept it together. I am so thankful for the people God places in my life who pray for me and share their stories with me. They give me hope. (You know who you are and I love you!) {{hugs}} ❤

“Coffee smells like freshly ground Heaven.” 

Speaking of having to change some things, I am currently on day 4 without my iced COFFEE or any coffee for that matter. This is hard. Oh, the headaches. Next is… sweet tea. I fail at that one every time. Pray for me. 😦

My youngest daughter is excited for school to start next month. I mark the number of days left on the calendar for her. She picked out a pretty new backpack and a very cool water bottle at the store. After my doctor’s appointment, I wasn’t feeling up to our weekly kid’s movie, but I took her anyway. I’m glad I did. She doesn’t ask for much and it is the highlight of her week. 🙂 

In case you missed them, here are the post I got finished this week:

Just when I thought things were not as bad as they could be and I began to try to get my life back in order, I had a dental emergency. This month alone, my mouth has cost me over $2,000 dollars. I do have insurance, so that will help some. I tried to calm down and relax. I had a date this week with my Man. We went to see the new Spider-Man movie. It was good. I didn’t need the action though and my anxiety started all over again. I used to love all kinds of movies. These days, I prefer Hallmark movies on TV and romantic comedies. I feel like I live in a scary movie everyday of my life and I don’t enjoy watching action/horror that much anymore. I just wanted to go home and we enjoyed a dinner from Olive Garden (his favorite restaurant). My Man is puzzled by my anxiety/behavior. He wants me to be the woman he met. He told me that I am in here, I’m in here somewhere and he wants me back. I don’t know where that woman is. Maybe she is buried deep down somewhere inside me like he said. This week, I will be searching for her…


Dollface came over for our weekly Girl’s night, but I didn’t feel up to doing my nails. I cannot decide what color to go with. I had taken all of my polish off and went completely natural. I tried to find a new color that “spoke” to me while I was grocery shopping, but I wasn’t feeling any of them. I think my nails reflect how I am feeling inside right now… stripped, unpolished and REAL. 

I was having a little crying breakdown in the shower the morning after “Girl’s Night” and Dollface slipped candy and a note under the bathroom door. We do that to each other. 😀  I wrote down 2nd Timothy 1:7 in my planner so I HAD to see it. I tried to enjoy the scenery and snapped that picture of the palm trees I love so much. 

My post picks this week are:

    You are amazing, even as you have struggled with a lot of anxiety and stress this week. You have been through so much and I’m here for you ❤ I don't know how you do it!

    Thank you for sharing two of my posts! You're so sweet, Mama! 😀

    I know you feel unpolished and not super strong this week, but you inspire me every day. I love you ❤ We'll keep trying to find happiness in between the craziness!

    Honest and piercing! I love that, I am always inspired by people who are willing to display themselves honestly! I have always tried to teach/preach so that people could apply what the Bible speaks of and that is only effective to people who realize they are NOT perfect! None of us are perfect, in the natural we have flaws and warts and such, yet our Heavenly Father still loves us, imperfections and all!!

    I also take a lot of medication, don’t like it and never did. I come from a background with “peers” who claim I have little to no faith if I depend on them. I’m also in a wheelchair. Not tied down mind you, but an accident in the early nineties took a my left knee cap and it was downhill physically from there. My mind still works, my spirit is still strong, like you, God still uses me, the Holy Spirit still speaks to me and in fact when I thought my ministry was over, the Lord showed me where He really wanted me!

    I encourage others like you to not look at this form of media as just a hobby! We live in an age where four walls no longer confine us to 100, 200 or even 500 people, but the Lord has expanded our ability to reach others all over the world and since each of us have a UNIQUE gift to offer, it reaches just the right people who need a touch from it at just the right time!! That’s God’s way of keeping the Body of Christ, renewed, alive and strong!

    We NEED one another and that is why I always find inspiration, insight AND encouragement in so many different areas! Welcome to the Blogosphere Sis and to a new avenue of ministry (SERVICE) that is already touching hearts all over. Don’t be surprised when you find the Holy Spirit touching hearts in places you may never have imagined!!

    God bless you as you continue to serve (minister) to the Lord and to each of us, His children! My prayer, yes prayer, not wishes, is that you receive abundant and rich blessings from Him, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords continually!!

    Oh my gosh, I am so sorry your anxiety was on high alert 😦 Glad you were able to get some time with your Man though. But the you he is wanting back has changed and evolved to handle the stressors that life has been thewoing at you here lately.

    That’s why we as men are told to know our wives. Parts of the old you are still inside, yes, but we all change and evolve and we must learn to appreciate and love those changes.

    The real you is still there. The one who loves God and family. The one cares so deeply for those around 🙂

    Thanks so much for including one of my posts. I truly appreciate the fact you enjoy reading my posts and that some of them touch you enough to share with your readers 🙂

      Yeah, it’s been… really bad lately. I’m running out of ways to cope. Medication is my last resort. 😭 I’m getting desperate though. Life is just… overwhelming at times. Can’t get my head above water right now.

      “Evolved”, yep. I agree.

      I was telling Des the other day that I thought I had handled everything that happened in my life very well, I kept going and no one knew what had happened. I was THAT good. I was supermom, supersister, superdaughter, superfriend, superwoman and superlover. Then, it all caught up to me and I am breaking. I can’t do it anymore. My body won’t let me. It’s almost like I can hear it saying, “Enough… enough.” as I close my eyes and envision myself laying back, breathing… letting it all go. Then, I snap back to reality.

      I agree, we do change and evolve. Most of us do anyways.

      Thank you, I am still here. 💕

      You’re welcome! Brother Stuart, I could share all of your post every single week (yes, they are THAT good), but we can’t let anyone know that you are my 2nd favorite blogger. 😉


      • Stuart L. Tutt says:

        Well, there are only three supers that you should be…supermom, superlover to your Man and superdaughter to God. You will always be my superfriend just by being you 😊

        I know you don’t like meds but sometimes that is God’s way of healing.

        Thank you for always encouraging me in my writing…even on the taboo topics.

        Thank you brother Stuart. 💕

        True. I need to start looking at it that way. 🤔

        Of course! I’m looking forward to whatever God lays on your heart.
