Yesterday: First day of school. Today: Still having mixed emotions. These kids are my everything. It is so hard to let them go out into the world where they can be influenced and changed. But if Carl and I do our jobs right then we will have amazing humans out in the world. It's always difficult to be left alone during the day and I count down the minutes til they get home to share all the awesome and scary things they face each day. I love being the first person to be there when they return safely home. All I ask and pray for is that they will change the world and the world won't change them, but for good, from life lessons and experience. #blessedmom#adoptionmom#schooldays#changetheworld#lovefirst#havecourage#bekind#kyagirl#zanderman#bealeader#prayalways#Heiswithyou#myheart#times2
Sad to see the events in Charlottesville and Barcelona. Surely hatred is trying to divide us. We are not called to hate but to love! When I look into the face of my "enemy", I see my brother. Let love take over! #light#lovefirst#lovealways#calledtolove#wisdom#bless
The more time I spend with this amazing soul, the more I get to learn about myself. We share the deepest conversations on love and light and our place in the world.
Gifted with an enormous heart, she's made it her mission to make our world a little bit brighter. She's an absolute oddball like me so we get along like it's no one's business.
Those of us who know her often talk about her kind heart, which is a testament to the impact she has on the people around her. Oh and her writing's amazing too, so be sure to check it out.
Almost everyday I get to connect with people at this kind of a level. We share our vision of a better world and where we believe we can play a small part. The conversations flow and amazing thoughts & ideas transpire.
Just an amazing time to be alive 😊
When I hate the hater there's really no difference between the two of us.
I'm not better or more right just because I believe I'm enlightened, thus believing my hateful comments of hateful people are justified.
I either speak life or death. What I give out, returns to me.
When I give life, I receive life. When I give death, I receive death.
Blessing and cursing cannot come from the same mouth simultaneously.
In most circumstances, we only know part of the facts. We give our opinion based on the facts we have or the emotions we feel concerning our experience.
I've passed judgement many times over the course of my life. Many times it would've been wiser to close my mouth and open my heart. May I lead with my heart. Always. - Kate Troyer
Each being on this earth matters to God. He created them in perfection and they are so precious to him. Nothing can separate anyone from receiving the love of God. So if we are ALL created in the image and likeness of HIM and we are called to love like HIM.... why do we believe that ones color has the power to disregard the truth that was written? That one person is inferior to the other? That hate is the answer? ---- Division, destruction, confusion, and hate are not works of our Heavenly Father. The enemy is well at work and it's time for people to stand up for what is right. As someone who loves Christ and studies his word to walk in it... I won't ignore racism. In fact I will proudly stand to say the Lord grieves at the hatefulness that consumes many in the world today. Do not be ignorant, silent, or speechless. Stand for what is right and lead with the love of the Lord inside you❤ May the peace of God surround our nation and hearts turn to him. May the blind see clearly through new eyes like you! Incline hearts back to you Lord and mend the division that has been created❤🌎🙏🏾✝️#faith#hope#love#peace#nohate#lovefirst#loveall#wedontseecolor#onenation#undergod#jesus#lovewins#loveheals#noracism#standup#perspective#walkinlove#walkintruth#bethevessel#keepitreal#chooselove
