Not Today Drama LLama! Not Today! … #Arise

no-drama-lamaWhen thoughts take over and rule your mind,  Drama llama is not far behind!!

You need to control your mind…

Breathe in truth, Stay humble and kind…

“Love is patient and kind.  Love is not jealous or boastful or proud.”

1 Corinthians 13:4

Do not let your thoughts take over your day.

Learn to not feed them… Don’t analyze.  Don’t criticize… Don’t over think…

Just don’t.



Stay busy.

Stay productive…

God is never in the weeds… He is always in the light…

Love yourself enough to stop breaking your own heart…

God’s love is pure… strong and full of goodness…

Not today drama llama… Not today :)

Live in Love,


“Yes, you have been with me from birth; from my mother’s womb you have cared for me.

No wonder I am always praising you!  My life is an example to many because you have been my strength and protection.

That is why I can never stop praising you;

I declare Your glory all day long.”

Psalm 71:6-8

(For some extra love read all of Psalm 71… God is for YOU :)






He Fills My Life With Goodness… #Arise


more-kindness-than-necessaryHow true is that?

I’ve been on both sides of this situation so many times…

I have felt the sting of someone not noticing me, or my hurting heart…

I’ve walked away from situations where I am immediately convicted of my harshness…

That feeling of hurting someone, hurts….

Life is hard.  We should be kind while we still have time.

This I know…

The more I pour my heart,  and my life out in the presence of God, the more my eyes see, and my heart feels…

The more I want to be like Him… Kind, patient, loving….

God always sees our best in His eyes… He always has our best in mind, and always wants us to extend His goodness wherever we are…

“Follow God’s example in everything you do, because you are his dear children.

Live a life filled with love for others, following the example of Christ, who loved you 

and gave himself as a sacrifice to take away your sins.

And God was pleased because that sacrifice was like sweet perfume to Him.”

Ephesians 5: 1-2

This scripture is what The Sweetest Fragrance was birthed from….

Praying… loving… living my life to be a sweet aroma of His goodness and grace…

It’s a daily battle… I lay my  wants and desires down… I seek Him.

I seek His grace… His hope.

His care over my life…

Then I walk…

Dear Jesus,

How I pray wherever my day takes me, Your light of love will be known…

May I continually lay down my hopes and desires and seek all that You are…

That my life will be a sweet fragrance to those who are hurting, to those who are searching for love, light, and unconditional grace…

You are my everything…

You are my hope…

Thank you for filling my heart with Your love, and my moments with Your purposes…

Thank You for Your sweet forgiveness that my soul craves in my darkest hours…

You fill me with hope… Strengthen me with goodness, and send me on my way with light…

Thank You for all that You are…

In Jesus Name

I pray,


Live in Love,




Every Hour… Every Day… #Arise


Every hour … Every day…
Dear God,  I love you so much…

Your presence is the very peace of my soul….

How I thank you… how I love you, and how I need you..

“His compassions never fail. They are new every morning …”

Lamentations 3: 22-23

Thank you, Dear Jesus, for your much needed compassions…

I can’t imagine the heart ache my heart would feel, in this crazy world, without my hope being in You…

I praise Your Holy Name…

I love You,

In Jesus Name,

I pray,


Live in love,

Courage Dear Heart… #Arise

courage“When you go through deep waters, and great trouble, I will be with you.

When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown!

When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will

not consume you.

 For I am the Holy one of Israel, your savior……. because you are precious to me.  You

are honored, and I love you.”

Isaiah 43:1-4

You are precious to God…

He will not let the fire of oppression consume you…

Stay focused on the good.

Stay basking in His light.

God is in control :)

Live in love,



Feel the Goodness… #Arise


As I say good bye to summer, my soul is drawn to the freshness of fall …

I am reminded of the overwhelming freshness I felt when God held me, cleansed me, and forever changed my heart.

His hope and sweet forgiveness seemed to come out of nowhere… like a cool breeze on a summer day, and the beauty of watching a leaf fall to the ground on a fresh fall day. So peaceful … so sereal!

May your day be filled with a fresh outlook… and totally full of all the pumpkin things!!

I love you guys!

Live in love,


“He has put a new song in my mouth. A hymn of praise to our God…”

Psalm 40

Live. Love. Laugh Often… #Arise


When I look too far ahead, I always feel anxiety.

When I look back, I may feel sadness for lost time…

When I look at the moment I find myself in, I can breathe…

This is the what is real.

Learning to let go… Learning to live right Now.

Not taking life so seriously.  We all fail.  We all mess up…  It’s a journey…

Living with a joyful heart, is trusting God has a way, because He is the way… This is where we live and breathe and learn and grow…

We don’t know what the future will bring, but we do know that right now… right now, we are creating the past.  We are creating our legacy…

We have to chose, every day,  to live in the moments that are happening right in front of our very eyes.. Not distracted by thoughts upon thoughts upon thoughts..

Too many thoughts of what is, or what should be, what could be, what if…Keep you in your head instead of in your life... All of them take us away from the productive moments of living in the present…

We need to chose life.

When God sent Jesus to our hearts, He chose YOU… He chose You in advance to free you… He chose YOU because He knew the goodness and beauty you are capable of…

The love and difference your life is making in this crazy world.

Believe Him…

Trust Him.

You will never, ever, ever, be perfect… but better than that… You are loved.  Forgiven.  Chosen, and redeemed.

“Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins have been forgiven…. Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

Luke 7: 48-50

Go in peace.  Move forward moment by moment.  Let it be that simple.

Wake up and smell the coffee… the rain… the flowers… wake up and live :)

Dear Heavenly Father, by your grace and by your might you have already stopped the war in our minds, Your very word is what has replaced our compulsive thinking… May we have the wisdom to see that.

May we chose to live in the love of your words,  replacing our thoughts with your sound peace…

That is the only way to live in the present… To be productive… To be free.

By Your love.  By Your grace.  And By Your words of peace…

Thank You for covering our minds with Your blood of truth…

May today and everyday, be filled with wonder, hope, and hustle :)

I love You,

In Jesus Name,


Live in Love,


“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

John 14:27

I want to be like the pink Llamacorn… :)

Do not let your hearts be troubled!

Live, Love, and laugh :)



She loved Kind Words, Good Vibes, Sunshine, And Tacos :) …. #Arise

tacos“The only thing thing that counts is faith expressing itself in love.”

Galatians 5:6

The voice of God is warm, kind…

His voice  pours freedom over your soul.

Listening to the voice of heaven, is always a tuning process…

God speaks to our hearts in softness… love, and always great compassion.

His voice calms our fears… and stills our hearts.

His voice speaks grace over guilt.  Hope over dismay.  Peace over confusion…

Let Him fine tune the song of your heart….

That you would love good vibes… warm sunshine, kind words, and the freedom to be yourself…

God’s love has no fear… God’s love draws you near ….

“Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear.  If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced His perfect love.”

1 John 4:18

Oh, Dear Friend, If you live with fear, or shame, guilt or condemnation, you are not alone…

That is our human nature.


But God in His all consuming love came that we would be set free…

His voice draws us to trust Him…

To run to Him, and to live in Him.

Our Human nature is always in contrast to the Spirit of God…

God is love.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for today. Thank You for soothing my soul, and touching my heart.

Father, if any of us are struggling with the song of your love, how I pray You would meet us right where we are, and tear the root of condemnation from our very soul….

You are light…

Your are hope….

And Your voice is goodness over me.

“He has brought me to the banquet hall, and His banner over me is love.”

Song of Solomon 2:4

He has lead us to the land of plenty… the land of hope, goodness and freedom.

His banner over YOU is LOVE…

Thank You, Dear Jesus….

I love You,

In Your Name,

I pray,


Live in Love,


Love your people… Be kind and eat tacos!  :)


Let It Go…. #Arise


Philippians 4:6

That thing that is weighing your spirit down, tearing your  heart apart… How I pray you feel relief …. comfort… and so much love.
God hears your whispers,  and sees your heart.
He is working things out for your good, and will never let you go Trust God’s timing and be at peace…

You are my heart and inspiration .
