I’ve been told I have resting bitch voice... more often that I’m willing to admit. Not an excuse... but I’m yankee, I’m Irish & I come from a long line of em. We are loud, overly honest, passionate, & just a tad opinionated 😜 but we love & care relentlessly! If I’m ever excited or passionate a topic, I have been told I sound like I’m pissed... & I’m not... at all. So needless to say... the struggle is real. I CANNOT hide my emotions. I’m VERY transparent. But the upside is, that I am, who I am, whether at church, home, work, etc. I don’t put on a “church face”. I’ve been elbowed... I don’t know how many times for cussing in church. God knows my heart... why pretend? Why not just be me & pray for the strength to change the areas of my life I’m less than proud of. I feel like I struggle w/ this, more than most, but I’m probably making it bigger than it is... due to criticism & insecurity. So, most of time... I feel like if I don’t talk in a fake sweet voice during disagreements that it almost always turns into an argument because of my tone. And when you already sound pissed every time you open your mouth... adding the passion of disagreement to that... DOES NOT HELP! So how do I combat this.... honestly I haven’t figured that out yet. I try to keep a watchful eye on my emotions, anxiety level & my investment in the topic. I’ve been told I have gotten better over the years... but I have a long way to go! The situation ALWAYS has a better outcome if I have time to prepare. But life doesn’t always give you “prep time”. So... I pray daily about this. I ask God to give me the strength to not let anything come out of my mouth that isn’t helpful or loving. And I fail CONSTANTLY... but, I also get it right a lot too. I’m learning to go back & apologize for my tone, when I recognize I was wrong. #GodsLife#WhoAreYouLivingFor#RememberWhoseYouAre#SpeakTruth#LoveOthers#GodIsGood#God#Jesus#HeLivesInUs#GodsPlans#GodsCalling#ThisLifeIsntAboutYou#ThisLifeIsAboutGod#BeThankful#PraiseHim
A couple days late...story of our lives over here haha #ethanjamesdufresne is weighing in at 10lb 6oz and height is 23inches.
Crazy to think how different each kid can be...Charley only gained 13oz at her 1month (and this mom was so emotional about feeding crying all the time bc she wasn't transferring milk or gaining weight) and this guy has gained 2lb 3oz! So thankful for a healthy report and to see God's faithfulness with this round of feeding a kiddo! #dufresnepartyoffour#godisgood

My last #quoatablequote was from the beginning of Unexpected. This is a quote from the end of this exceptional book. It was a balm to my soul. I basically want to buy it in bulk and send it to like 20 of my friends. There are so many people who are hurting right now. When the light gets shone on the dark places it can be unexpected and even painful but when I go back to resting in the fact that God is good. He does good. He is working ALL things (especially the unexpected) for my good and His glory it helps to calm my anxious heart. I hope it helps to calm yours as well. Get the book!
