See You In A Little While

Since the beginning of the year, it seems I have attended funeral after funeral. My heart breaks for the families because I know the feeling of loss they are experiencing. The pain is almost more than you can bear.

Many of you know, I lost my Mom to cancer in 2009. Although I may not mention it as much, there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of her. Oh how I wish I could pick up the phone and call her and hear her sweet voice.

Mom continues to influence my life, not just in the memories I have of her but also by the words she wrote in her Bibles, books and her journals.

I recently found this in the front of one of her Bibles. “Lord, as I gaze intently into your Word, reveal the things in my life that need to be changed. Then grant me the grace to make those changes, so I can live more fully to your glory! Amen”

See You In A Little While
What a legacy Mom has left for her family. She pointed us to Christ while she was living but she continues to point us to Christ even in her death. What a blessing!

This is another song from Steven Curtis Chapman’s latest album. It’s entitled, See You In A Little While. He wrote this song after losing his grandmother and if you know their family story, three years ago, they also lost their daughter.

Mom, I”ll see you in a little while and I can’t wait!


I hold your hand and watch as the sun slowly fades
Far in the distance the Father is calling your name
And it’s time for you to go home
And everything in me wants to hold on
But I’m letting you go with this goodbye kiss and this promise

I’ll see you in a little while
I’ll see you in a little while
It won’t be too long now
We’ll see it on the other side
The wait was only the blink of an eye
So I’m not gonna say goodbye
‘Cause I’ll see you in a little while

And just one more thing before I let you go
Please tell my little girl I love her
Though I’m sure she already knows
And ask the Father to please tell the Son
That we’re ready and waiting for Him to come

I’ll see you in a little while
I’ll see you in a little while
It won’t be too long now
We’ll see it on the other side
The wait was only the blink of an eye
So I’m not gonna say goodbye
‘Cause I’ll see you in a little while

Maybe you’ll teach me all the songs they sing in heaven
Maybe you’ll show me how you can fly
And I’ll hear you laugh again
And we won’t remember when
We were not together and this time it’s forever

I’ll see you in a little while
I’ll see you in a little while
It won’t be too long now
We’ll see it on the other side
The wait was only the blink of an eye
So I’m not gonna say goodbye
‘Cause I’ll see you in a little while
I’m gonna see you in a little while

Have a blessed Sunday!

And The Two Became One

I’m not an eloquent writer. Although I write a blog, it’s a blog about fashion & beauty so it doesn’t require deep thinking or imagery with my words. Today I wish I was that kind of writer.

Twenty two years ago on this very day, Wayne and I married and the two became one.

It was not a Pinterest worthy wedding. It was simple but sweet. We were surrounded by family and friends who loved us at the church where my husband was on staff as Minister of Music and Youth.

We committed to love each other and above all to we committed our marriage to Christ.

As I look back over the last twenty two years it has not always been easy because life happens. We’ve had a wonderful marriage but we’ve also had difficult seasons.

I’ve made more mistakes than I care to admit. If I could go back I would do some things differently.

It’s taken me years to figure some things out……..I’d listen when I needed to listen, I’d forgive and forget, I wouldn’t want to be “right” so much of the time, and I’d enjoy each moment more because life goes by so quickly.

I am blessed with a husband who is not only passionate about me, but more importantly he’s passionate about Christ and so today I celebrate our life together. Here’s to many more years of serving the Lord together!

And The Two Became One

We were married in the 90s and if you had a christian wedding during that time, you might have had this song sung at your wedding. We did, and I still love it today!

Have a blessed day!

Before the Throne of God

Happy Sunday Friends!!

“I can think of no moment more incredible, and no place more beautiful than before the throne of God. The daily battles become more painful. The race becomes even more draining. But we discover he has given us the greatest gift of all; a sinless Savior that died for us.

We are undeserving, sinful, wretched creatures, and yet we have a God so gracious, so merciful, so loving that he sent his Son to die in our place for our mistakes. Before the throne of God above, we have the perfect plea and we look upward and see that He has made an end to all our sins. -Brian Kim

Thankful today for a loving God, and thankful that my name is graven on His hands and His heart!

Have a blessed day!

Begin Your Day in God’s Word

Begin Your Day in God's Word
I didn’t take this picture but saw it on facebook from Women Living Well. It reminded me of how I love to start my mornings.

The last few days I feel like I’ve been bombarded with sad news. Friends that are suffering with cancer, marriages that are struggling and families dealing with serious problems.

I never have all the answers, nor do I pretend to. But the one thing that I know is spending time in God’s word is not wasted. It is manna for our soul!

Today, take time to spend some quiet moments in His word. I promise you’ll be blessed!


Have a blessed Sunday!

The Hands & Feet Of Christ

Follow the Compassion Bloggers in Nicaragua
This past week my sister has been in Nicaragua with Compassion International. I’m so happy that she had the opportunity to go on this trip but I have missed her (don’t tell her that) and I can’t wait to see her. She flys home today!

Traci was able to meet the child she sponsors through Compassion and his family. He is such a handsome young man!

The Hands & Feet Of Christ

She went to his home and as I looked at this picture, I noticed the dirt road they’re walking on to get to his home. It’s such a contrast to the paved road I drive on everyday to get to my house.

The Hands & Feet Of Christ

I’m so thankful for the ministry of Compassion International. By sponsoring a child we get to be the hands and feet of Christ. We can make a difference in a child’s life!

This is Jenifer, the child I sponsor in Peru. I keep this picture in my office and pray for that sweet face everyday. I recently got a letter from her with a picture she had drawn and I treasure it.

The Hands & Feet Of Christ

The words to this song say perfectly what we need to be doing. Here are the words to the chorus:

I will live
To carry Your compassion
To love a world that’s broken
To be Your hands and feet
I will give
With the life that I’ve been given
And go beyond religion
To see the world be changed
By the power of Your name

I don’t want to get to the end of my life and realize I didn’t make a difference in the power of His name. That’s why I want to be a part of Compassion International. That’s why I open my home to foreign exchange students.

Because Christ has made a difference in my life and I want to share it with the world!

Where is Christ calling you to be his hands and feet?

Have a blessed day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I shared this picture and these words on my facebook page yesterday and I wanted to share it with you too.

Happy Mother's Day!

In honor of Mother’s Day, I have to say I would love to have one more hug from my Mom, one more time to hear her say “I love you”, one more time to wake up and call her first thing in the morning, one more time to hear her say, “Cyndi you’re a great Mom!”, one more time for her to remind me of God’s grace and how it covers all my past mistakes.

But I know more than anything Mom would want me to say to you, “Love Jesus with all your heart, your soul, and your mind.” She would say “Run to Him, don’t walk, because He’s our only hope!”

Happy Mother’s Day friends!!!

***If you’ve been reading my blog for very long, you know how much I love my Mom and how much I miss her. Today I’m praying for all of you that have lost your Mom’s. May you feel the peace and comfort that only Christ can give.
