Console my Broken Heart

My heart is breaking.

I had so many things I wanted to share with all of you this Monday.  But I will save them for another day :).   Because there WILL be another day…lol.

Yesterday our parish priest shared how our Bishop is moving him to a different parish because he is needed there.  My heart breaks because we just got here.  I have truly fall in love with this priest in such a short four month period.  When he broke the news yesterday, my eyes welled….and I could barely speak about it during the day.  It created such a deep loss within me.  I went to Console and Bergamot to support me.

It had me pondering WHY!?  Why did I feel such loss?  And then it hit me….I HAD FULLY, VULNERABLY, WILLINGLY, FINALLY LET SOMEONE  INTO MY LIFE WITH NO GUARD, NO HESITATION!!! 

The realization that it hurt so deep was because I truly loved this man and all he has to give to his church, his congregation, with no reservation.  My wounds of past vulnerabilities had truly been healed.  And that gave me great joy.  

Then I had to remind myself to have that Godly detachment.  And again…I had accomplished that as well.  I was able to recognize that we cannot cling to things and people, only God is our true rock…..YET we are to love others with our WHOLE heart, mind, soul….this is not always easy…..right!?  Especially when we are wounded!

YET….I did it!  And that gave me amazing joy and peace!

So when you find yourself clinging to someone or something, reflect on why?  Give it to God.  And when you find yourself feeling great loss, give yourself the grace to to heal and move forward yet remember we must only cling to God!

As always….sit…pray…oil up…and tap through your day!!

Drops of blessings and hugs dear ones!

PS…..Last week was abundantly full with my darling daughters theater schedule and this week will be as well due to it being production week, so there will more than likely be only one posting this week, but who knows…lol.  I am also going to stop trying to figure out the right “formula” of when and what to write for you all because that’s not being true to me, thus not true to you all!  But more about that soon ;)……Til then….

Have an amazingly blessed week!

Food, Fitness, and Faith on Friday

Really what I should say is:  FAITH…then food…then fitness…:)

I recently was listening and reading about how our food, our nutrition, is 80% of what we see in the mirror and our fitness is only 20%.  What does that mean?  It means  we truly are what we eat!  If a person has aesthetic goals than spinning their wheels on the treadmill for hours and hours at a time each day is not going to accomplish the physical look and goal they are trying to obtain.  A person MUST evaluate how they eat, why they eat, and what they eat.

The 20% of fitness truly can be just 3-4 hours a week or even less when a person focuses on strength as their primary goal rather than aesthetics.  Then, the looks just fall into place if that is a person’s goal.  A routine as simple as walking for 20-30 minutes each day, lifting weights 2-3 times a week for 20-30 minutes, and one sprint or metcon kind of workout a week is truly all that is needed.  This is basically what I do.  My walking may be outside or on my mini trampoline but it is nothing that makes me huff and puff to get my cortisol dumping bad hormones into my body and creating havoc on my insulin and thus adrenals….etc.

BUT I challenge us to look at our food and fitness outside of the box.

What if we put FAITH FIRST. Revolve our every day, our every thought, every action, and our every craving on our FAITH?

What if we gave our FAITH 100%?

Wouldn’t the food of 80% and fitness of 20% become easier?  Less of a chore? More balanced? A better perspective?

I remember once hearing how a marriage isn’t a 50/50 relationship.  That each spouse MUST give 100%  in order to truly experience the beauty and blessings of a marriage.

Thus, I challenge that our relationship with our FAITH, FOOD, AND FITNESS is the the same, in that we must give GOD 100% in order for us to understand and balance the 80% Food and 20% Fitness!

This doesn’t mean we don’t work on what needs to be done to be healthy.  Instead it gives us a better focus on why to be healthy.

A focus on living a longer and healthier life to go out and do amazing works for HIM!!!

Now that is better than any visual in the mirror in my book!

***But….you also won’t be disappointed with what you see in the mirror when GOD/FAITH is the first 100%…..TRUST ME ON THIS!!! 🙂

Blessings and hugs,

Father’s Day on Friday!

Father’s Day is Sunday!!!

I wanted to share how much I have grown to appreciate the role…. husbands, fathers, men….have in our lives.

Whether they realize it or not they are a huge factor in how we as women view ourselves.  How we even treat ourselves.  They can factor into our motivation of wanting to do something or not do something.

Daddies definitely have a HUGE factor in molding how our daughters will view men in their dating future.  How the men in our lives treat our daughters will create a standard for our daughters….for young women.

When a Daddy continually stops to listen to the chatter of their 10 year old daughter instead of fiddling with his phone…it says to her, she is more important than that silly email that just binged!

When a Daddy opens doors, holds her in his lap, and gives her a reassuring hug….it says to her, she is important and deserves to be treated with love and respect.

When a Daddy helps her get back up on the bike, or pushes her to do just one more flip….it says to her to not give up trying even when things are hard.

When a MAN remembers his role in a WOMANS life then it makes it lovely for a WOMAN to remember how beautifully made she is and her role and just how very important that role is!

This Father’s day I am going to give the amazing man in my life a gift that doesn’t just last for a day.  It is not something he can hold.

I want to give him a novena and fast.

I was thinking about this the other day when I came across a Father’s Day Novena.   I thought wow how perfect.  I will start it the day after Father’s Day for 9 days!

For me I love adding a type of fast (even if it is abstaining from one or two things) to my prayer life.  For me it takes my prayer life to the next level.  It gives it direction, purpose.  But again that is for me.

I was even having fun with some ideas of how, what to suggest to give up for 9 days to see how it can be intertwined with the prayer.

 For example:

1.  Giving up nuts, almonds, to pray for a father’s heart to continue to be strong and endure all the trials of this life.
2.  Giving up alcohol or desserts or treats to remind oneself that the true celebration is knowing we have a special man in our life.
3.  Giving up or limiting tv, computer, electronic time to remember to connect more fully and deeper with that man.
4.  Giving up that one thing that reminds you of a deceased father, grandfather, important male figure in your life!

Take a moment today, this weekend, next week….to reflect and pray for the men in your life!  And if you feel they are not living up to what God has called them to be or do….then pray for them to have the courage to be the men they are designed, created to be!  Pray they continue or start having a strong armor for Christ!
NONE of us can do this alone.

WE ALL can use prayer!

Have a Fantastic Father’s Day full of….
Fun…
Food….
Fellowship…
Faith…
and our Heavenly Father!!!

Love, blessings, and prayers always,
~K 🙂
