God can Heal a Broken Heart but He has to have all the Pieces.

Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength, they will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Sharing In The Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

I am linking up for the ULTIMATE BLOG PARTY 2011 WITH 5 Minutes for Mom!

Hi I'm Heather! I am called many things; a child of God, wife, mommy, daughter, sister, supervisor, grandaughter, aunt, niece, Hev to my friends, well, you get the point. None of these things define who I am as a person just what label I have been given at any particular time. Most important is that I am a child of God, a Christ follower, a woman trying to abide by his Word to grow a deeper relationship with Him.
In January 2010 my life took a turn in a direction I had never imagined. It was always something you "hear" about but never can fully understand, until you are stuck right in the center of it and there just isn't a way out. On the 30th of January in 2010 my little brother (only by 15 mths but still little to me) was murdered. I fell apart but not completely because fortunate enough for me I knew enough about God's love for us. I had began my journey with Christ to truly know Him and not just about Him about a year before this happened. He is WHO has held me up, put back the pieces I lost and is still holding them together.
Some days I lose it, some days I just cry, some days I find joy and happiness, some days I can feel peace, but everyday I am reminded of what was lost. Taken so selfishly by someone who tried to be God.
I have 2 sweet and very precious daughters, Ava is 5 and Zoe is 2! They brighten my days and can also make mommy a little "you know what," trying to find that 5 minutes for myself. I have been married for 7 years this May to a wonderful man, Rob. I am learning to deal with my grief, my responsibilities as a wife and mom, my work responsibilities and continuously learning to depend upon God's strength to accomplish the things in my day. This blog was really started for me, as a way to release some of my feelings and show how God has helped me. I have met so many wonderful bloggers in the process and am so thankful for many of their encouragement and prayers.
I live in Georgia right where I grew up! I love that I am from the south but I am also interested in what the rest of this world has to offer.
So please stay, look around and if you think you will like me, I would love to get to know you!
God Bless, With Love,
