Note to self:


Sometimes more than any other person out there, I need my own heart to hear the message I share with the world. Earlier today I left a comment on a friend's blogpost. As soon as it posted and the words I had just written stared back at me from the computer screen, I just knew that I was the one that needed to see and believe in what I had just shared.
Maybe your heart needs to hear this same whisper of truth too.

Jody, I often have this exact realization when doling out advice, answering Facebook posts, blog posts, etc. I think I need to listen to myself more and I would be better off. :) I enjoy all of your wisdoms that you share.

Well I know your readership far exceeds the intention for these little blog chains, but I have been reading your blog since back in 2006. You were actually the very first blog I really ever followed and were my introduction into blogging! So anyway I have nominated you for the Liebster award, or am inviting you to participate in the Liebster project or… anyway I am still a little fuzzy about pay it forward blog awards but you are on my list of 11. If you do decide to participate I look forward to your Liebster post! The link to my own Liebster post and the details on how to participate is here:http://stumpsandbeans.com/2013/02/15/this-intimate-personal-and-vulnerable-side-of-blogging-sh-is-going-to-take-some-getting-used-to/

Best to you Jody! Seven years later I still enjoy checking in on your blog :)

I love to visit your blog site. your number 1 song, "unknown hymn" was one of the songs at my mother's funeral back in October, and to hear it again brings me bittersweet comfort. bless you.

So very very true!! Sometimes it has to be a daily choice, too. This summer my husband and I almost called it quits and I had a big decision to make. I actually left for 3 weeks with my daughter and had serious thoughts of leaving my husband after almost 19 years of marriage. But I allowed God to work in my heart and I came back after a lot of prayer, bible reading and soul searching. I had to allow God to work in me and give me Grace to fight even when I didn't think I wanted to...
