31 Days of Hindsight: 22 Will Have To Do

So today is the last day of “31 Days of Hindsight” and as you see, 22 is the new 31 for me:) One of the things I believe God is working on in my life is letting HIM set the goals AND chart the path. I have no doubt that HE asked me to take the “Hindsight Journey” but I […]

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 21

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 21 I love reading back through my journals and actually finding poetry I have written, poetry I would have forgotten had I not recorded it with pen and paper. I wrote this poem  (as well as jotting down the details of some awesome golf strokes), while on a golf cart, riding alongside my 15-year-old, as […]

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 20

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 20 Day 20 on this hindsight journey is coming to a close.  I opened up a journal from this past year to get some gold and God did not disappoint.  He reminded me of an idea HE gave me, one I have definitely dropped the ball on. However, God ideas do not have an expiration […]

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 19

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 19 Continuing the look back has been a great joy! I have revisited so many memories logged in my journals that I may have otherwise forgotten.  I hope you are looking back alongside me at your 2016. May we continue to sift out the gold gleaned, treasure it in our hearts and let it prepare […]

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 18

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 18 As I look back tonight before bed, I see how God, yet again, wove my yesterdays and today together in a seamless tapestry.  Luke 1 and 2 are my hindsight journal notes speaking into today and today is actually the Sunday before Christmas, how timely! The message at church revolved around Mary and being […]

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 17

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 17 As I continue to look back and glean, in order to grow and go into 2017, I see so many lessons and nuggets of wisdom God was whispering in my ear.  I am so glad I am taking this opportunity to put them in writing here, to remember and share, and hopefully continue to […]

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 16

Hello Day 16!!!!! This look back is proving to be a “bucket full” of amazing memories, memories of people, places, circumstances, songs, poems, books, and  memories of God’s faithfulness above all else! If you are taking your own look back alongside me, I would love for you to share some of the gold you have gleaned from your 2016 year-end […]

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 15

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 15 Today is day 15; therefore since we are just about at the half-way mark on this 31 day journey, I am adding a reminder of WHY it began in the first place. If today is your first day on the adventure, I hope you will read days 1-14 when you get a chance and […]

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 14

31 Days of Hindsight: Hello Day 14!!! As summer 2016 was approaching, my theme song became Pieces by Steffany Gretzinger . My journal is covered in the lyrics and my social media reflected the dance Jesus and I were taking together.     *** Check out the post below for more on what this song meant to me. I believe it will whisper […]

31 Days of Hindsight: Day 13

**Check out Day 12 for the prelude to this post! __________________________________________________ 31 Days of Hindsight: Day 13 ***Ok readers, I kid you not! As I was typing the declaration below, I got a text from a sweet sister asking for prayer over an ABUSIVE SITUATION! I promise you that that is not an average text for me.  How present and good […]
