Let’s work on pulling out that mote…

Things that I’m not:

°organized

°very good at socializing

°financially savvy(although I am better)

°good at writing thank you notes, although I am trying.

°rich(far from it)

°patient

°unselfish(which means that I’m selfish, most of the time)

°perfect(Who is?) Thank God for GRACE….

We all have our failures that we live with and struggle through, day in and day out. Why, do we always judge others so harshly? Have we walked a mile in their shoes? Are the “crimes” they commit any worse than the crimes we commit? Do we have a plank in our own eye that needs to be removed?

Just thoughts I’ve been thinking through, lately. Felt like getting them out of my head.

Much love,

A Holy Experience – What Christians Need to Know about Mental Health

http://www.aholyexperience.com/2013/04/what-christians-need-to-know-about-mental-health/ I love, love, love her way with words. I am weary, weary of death, weary of sadness, weary of ugly attitudes and people devouring each other when we should be loving. Weary of weariness, bone deep tiredness so deep it aches. Hope is in the morning and Jesus is always waiting on the other side, holding out his nail scarred hands. He knows. He gets it. He understands. He HEALS. Love to you all, ~Jules~

My new blog home!!!!

Well, I have moved to wordpress and started this blog so I can post here quickly, and spend less time on social media and cut my fb time down to almost nothing. 🙂

I have a lot of work to do on the blog but I’m excited! I am loving my phone app!

Check back with us! I am going to try and post more here instead of Facebook.

“See” you soon!

Love,

Jules
