A peaceful place dedicated to women of all walks and backgrounds who love Jesus. A sliver of hope and "oh yeah" moments among the craziness of the day. A place where I will come and share everyday thoughts, experiences, stories in purpose of letting women know, "hey life is not perfect, but I know of someone who is."
As I sat and pondered about the title of the blog, I googled blog ideas, names and honestly did not like any of them. I wanted something relevant, and simple as our lives are complicated as it is without a complex blog title to analyze. In the quiet of the night, with my puppy finally asleep and the kids somewhat quiet, it hit me. There are many moments in my life where my roles take me places where I just have to pause and remember to breathe. Working in the medical field we would have crash carts in various places containing syringes, electronic pads, oxygen masks, etc with the sole purpose of helping a person breathe again, to get their heart to restart. From a spiritual standpoint, Jesus is our live support, for He contains the equipment to restore our hope, faith and show us mercy and love when at times we cannot love ourselves.
I hope this gives a glimmer of explanation as to the title of my blog which is called "Just Breathe." When you are at the doctors office with a sick child, all you can do sometimes is just breathe. When the mail is piled with bills you cannot pay because of a work layoff, all we can do at times is just breathe. When you lock the key in the car for the fifth time, or your house refuses to stay clean, remember to just breathe. Jesus is our spiritual life support and we cannot resuscitate ourselves no matter how hard we try (and believe me I have tried many times with failure.)
I look forward to this journey together as I will be posting once a week, maybe twice as the Lord gives me the words. I welcome your thoughts, comments and life experiences.
Colossians 3:15- "Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."
