What's in Your Heart?

“I’m committed to being awesome today. Join me!” Had you ever had one of those days where you wake up in the morning and things don’t seem to be lining up? The days where your alarm clock doesn’t go off. Your children are cranky and moving like turtles. Your iron put a stain on your last clean shirt. You can’t find your car keys. To top it off, once you get everyone and everything out of the house and into the car, the car doesn’t crank up.

In spite of me having one of those starts to my day today, I am choosing to be awesome.  Proverbs 23:7 tells us “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…” It all starts in the heart. So, what’s in your heart? Spend today thinking about the deep seeded things of your heart. Are you overflowing with love or anger? Are you maintaining with disappointment or joy? Are you filled with envy or contentment? Are you walking in fear or faith?

The thoughts and feelings that reside in your heart are the thoughts and feelings that will dictate your words and actions. Choose today to replace any negativity with positivity. You won’t regret the shift.
Are you committed to being awesome today?

I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
