Days like today remind me of my childhood. Going to the park... my sister and I would look at each other and grin we then put our cute little sneakers firmly on the sand as I counted....


As I counted the last number my heart would start beating hard as my feet started to move and my arms started to swing as Carole and I raced to the seesaw.

We both jumped on either side as our blond hair blew in the air we had no care or worries we were just two sisters on the seesaw.

Of course the seesaw seems different now because this seesaw doesn't make my hair blow in the wind it just makes my head spin. ;)

This seesaw is called the seesaw of life.

Have you been on it?

My constant thought today was I really need an ice coffee.


However, even though my day was rocky there was moments where I could smile.

Like going on break and finding my sweet sister Carole online so I could share my heart with her. Some fun games of words with friends and most of all the sweet reminder that God is with me.

I love it when your day is giving you a stomach ache and a verse is a laid on your heart.

I'm so thankful that God can put his mighty hand on the seesaw and make it stop.

As usual I just needed to write and now I am feeling better.

I just got back from my spring break. And let me tell ya it was so refreshing. I think I needed a break, and to be honest I didn't want it to end. I was having such a great time with my Mimi. However, it was wonderful to see my "little" people again they are good for my heart. :)

It is always nice though to have a few days off to recap, refresh and get re started for the rest of the school year.

I think we all need that once in a while.

Tell me what have you been doing this spring?

5 years ago...

...tonight....I sat at the old family computer and I started this.
My posts are so few and far between these days but I can't help but post. I was talking to my mom tonight about it. She was teasing me at how little I post. I laughed and said but I can't close it.

I just can't. Writing has always been my "get a way" I love to write and I truly love to blog.

I look around at the fellow bloggers that were blogging when I started and most of them have stopped blogging and instead have a facebook page they have their faithful blog readers follow.

I just wonder how many of you would follow it if I did that? I would still keep this blog going and give you the heads up on that page when I write something over here, Just something I have been mulling over for a  while and thought I would ask my faithful bloggy readers on my fifth blogging anniversary. :)

Even though I am not having a big fancy giveaway this year I wanted to direct you to one dear friend of mine who is having a big fancy give away and I know she would love if you entered so go on over to Morgan's site and say "hi"

I just wanted to thank all my faithful readers for always checking on Pieces Of My Heart!! :)

Happy Easter

Thursday, April 5, 2012


The Lord is great. He is so patient with me even when I act as horrible as a two year old throwing a tantrum sometimes, not outwardly but inwardly. As I pray or just sit and sulk I use the word "me" or "I" to often as I let the hot tears stream down my face.

I start feeling like I am not getting my way so something is not right. I then get slap with reality. Maybe it's something I hear on the radio, or read in an article or just looking at some of the families I  know who are struggling. And then it dawns on me I am not being fair. I am being very unfair. I have so much the Lord has given me so much and yet I complain.

The Lord has blessed me beyond measure and I stomp my feet like a spoiled toddler.

I was thinking about that this morning as I looked at my sweet students in front of me I don't allow them to complain to me if they didn't get the flavor jelly bean they wanted however I complain to the Lord when something doesn't go my way.

I know it's good to examine yourself make sure you are doing all you can to do to be the best Christian you can be and so many times I have failed.

Even at that. The Lord once again says here you go.

...and in His hands is a heaping full of Grace...


What a word. What a meaning.


Makes my heart flutter.

How about you is the Lord handing you some grace today? Grab the grace and loose the pouty lip! :)
