Please Pray For My Mom (Oral Surgery)

August 11th update: She’s feeling a lot better and is in much less pain now! She’s still taking OTC pain meds to cope with aching in her jaw and gums, and her diet mainly consists of very soft foods. 😊❀️ Thank you all for your prayers!

Hello! πŸ™‚ ❀ In this quick update post, I’d like to ask you to please keep my mom in your thoughts and prayers. Yesterday afternoon, she had a molar and a wisdom tooth extracted. The surgery was successful, but because she has a history of low platelets, she had prolonged bleeding at the surgery sites for hours afterward. She had to keep replacing the gauze every hour or so until late last night, which was quite painful and difficult since her gums are so sore. She’s been able to drink some water and is taking OTC pain meds, and while she had some yogurt last night, she hasn’t been able to have anything else to eat since then.

Thoughtful Friday || Life + Blogging Chat

Hi there! ❀ My goodness, it has been far too long since I felt like myself on this blog. There are so many things I want to share with you in this post, because even though I’ve been posting on and off for the past several months, I haven’t actually been expressing what’s been going on in my life and how I’m really feeling about everything.

Hi there! I hope you’re having a beautiful day. πŸ’œ There has been a lot going on in my life recently (most of which have been good things!), so I knew it would be fitting to share an update post today.

(This also may or may not be the post idea I’ve fallen back on because I didn’t have another more thought-out post ready for today. haha whoops)

An Exciting Update + A Prayer Request

An Exciting Update + A Prayer Request

Hi there!! πŸ’™ I hope you’re having a fantastic day! πŸ˜„ Well, here’s this month’s first bonus post. πŸ˜‚ I have something SO exciting and very important that I need to write about and share with you!

Yesterday, I found out about a church fairly close to where I live. Everything I’ve read about it so far has made me excited, which is pretty awesome, since I’ve been wanting to find the right church for years.

I wanted to share this with you because I can feel the Lord at work in my heart. πŸ’– I don’t know all of the details yet, nor do I know when I’ll visit this church, but I am beyond excited – in much the same way I first was about Guatemala!

Speaking of Guatemala … 😍

A group from this church goes on a mission trip to Guatemala every year!

I am more than willing to let the Lord work in my life. I’m not rushing into this, or beginning to pack my bags, or anything like that … but I have peace that there’s something beautiful about this church, and that its presence in my life is significant.

Whatever this church experience may mean for me, I love the fact that a group from there goes on Guatemala missions 😍 I just might be part of that group someday!

I’d like to ask for you to pray that the Lord would work all of this out in accordance with His will. ❀️ I have no idea what the future holds, but I do know Who holds my future!

Thank you so much for reading! You have no idea how excited I am about this β˜ΊοΈπŸ’œ

I’m Back! + Where Have I Been?

Hi there! ❀ If you’re seeing this post pop up in your Reader, then I am certain that you’re completely surprised! For lack of a better introduction … I’m back!!!


I Thought I Was Done

Two months ago, I shared a post that told everyone who came across it that I was finished with this blog. It made me so sad to post, but I also knew that it was the right thing to do – the Lord confirmed it in my heart.

I spent these last several weeks believing it was a permanent decision … for the most part.

It brought me peace to say that I was done, and limiting my interactions with others online was what I needed. However, while I may have been “okay” to be done with a blog that I had previously adored, it was in an act of surrender to the Lord’s will that I went through with it.

Recovering From Dental Surgery | An Update

Recovering From Dental Surgery | An Update

Hi there! Happy Wednesday to you! ❀ Yesterday morning, I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed, and it went so well! I wanted to share a little update post to thank you for your prayers, encouragement, and for sharing your experiences, as well as to let you know how I’m doing today! πŸ™‚

This was the first major surgery I’ve ever had. The other minor ones were to remove a few stubborn baby teeth back in 2013, as well as something I had done for one of my toenails the following year. It was strange to have been put under yesterday, and even stranger to be recovering from surgery today!

Preparing For Wisdom Teeth Surgery | My Thoughts

Preparing For Wisdom Teeth Surgery | My Thoughts

I have had this surgery now and am recovering beautifully! Come read my update post here.

Hey guys ❀ I hope you’re doing well πŸ™‚ I don’t usually aim to share two posts in one day, but that’s just how today has gone. The one I posted earlier is about how I’ve been thinking about my responses to my family lately. While talking to my mom a few moments ago, she was encouraging me to write a post on how I’m feeling about the surgery tomorrow … so that’s what I’m doing right now.

I’m more worried now than I was when I found out that the surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. I figured this would happen, and it makes sense, but I wish my anxiety hadn’t grown. I’ve been reading the Bible and listening to uplifting songs these past couple of days, and that has definitely given me peace, but my fears have been giving me trouble.
