WELCOME TO MY BLOG
For the last 29+ years, I have had the privilege of being a mom. What a joy and a treasure to love and raise a child.
In 2010, when my second (and last) child left the nest and I nearly lost my mind! As I began to reminisce about raising my boys, I found that I wished someone had told me things I have had to learn the hard way. So if you are a mother of small children- ENJOY this time and cherish these moments. For all too soon, they will be gone. If your children are grown – it is never too late to love on them and be the mom they need.
Over the last eight years, I have found writing about my boys and memories that I have, has helped me process them not being in my life on a daily basis. The one thing I was woefully unprepared for was not being needed in a mom role on a daily basis! That takes some time getting used to. I have also found me again, Kelita, the individual. I have more time to dig deeper in the word and in His presence, and let me tell you, nothing heals a heart like the presence of God. It is only in Him will you find your true identity and purpose! Life is not over, you are just entering into a new era.
I have found great comfort, wonderful insight and instruction for my life in being worshipful before the Lord. In the words of a song that I love, “worship is my warfare, my praise is a weapon,” the Lord told me a couple of years ago that worship was my warfare…… I loved hearing that! It released me from the notion that I had to be all serious and battle minded every second! See, I love to worship and praise. I have been singing in church since I was 2, and He is truly the answer for every situation, so worship comes natural to me!
How awesome that simply worshiping causes angels and God Himself to fight on my behalf! WOW! To worship, to decree and declare, and to move into greater intercession are all so important to me. I may not be needed as a “mom” on a daily basis, but how much better will my boys’ lives be as I worship, decree/declare and intercede on their behalf on a daily basis! I AM still needed daily! I just had to shift roles. This role not only allows me to still minister to the lives of my children (and future grandchildren) but to those around me. Isn’t God good?! My job is to be obedient, be a vessel He can use and to trust Him regardless and no matter what.
I hope you enjoy hearing about my boys as much as I enjoy writing about them. I hope I inspire you to pray more! I hope something you read makes your load a little lighter. If you have lost your identity, it is my hope that you will find YOU once again. Let go of the apron strings and trust the foundation you put within them. And if the foundation was a bit rocky….God’s got you covered there as well. He is not in time…..He can go back and make the crooked places straight. Spend time in His word and His presence and allow the work of His Spirit to help you navigate the days ahead. I hope you will join me on this journey.
