• Holding On . . .

    November 29, 2011KarenBeth

    I think that this photo represents what we sometimes need inside to move forward. There are times that God gives us the strength to fight it, move around it, be with what is hard… and there are times we wish he would carry us through it. Sometimes you have been doing it yourself for so long that it almost seems impossible to allow someone else to carry you through it. It’s easier to ask God for help, because we can’t see him – but try asking other people in your life to help carry you through something that is truly…

  • Taking a Leap of Faith

    November 10, 2011KarenBeth

    When I saw this quote of faith, I immediately thought about the journey I have been on for almost 5 years now. My leap was deciding that I wanted to heal inside, and it’s been a hard process thus far, hasn’t been easy. Wings are not easy to build when you are used to just falling, or better yet never having the courage to take the leap to begin with. I have certainly had some support along the way. I don’t think any of us can take a leap without making sure someone is there to help in case you…

  • Black and White?

    November 1, 2011KarenBeth

    I took this photo today, I was in my car, sitting in a parking-lot, and I knew it had beautiful colors.. the reds and the oranges, the vivid sharp-ness of fall.. fall is one of my favorite times of the year, because of it’s colors and the weather. When I took my phone out to take this photo, for some reason I put it on “black and white”.. and I didn’t realize until now why.. why would I take a photo of something so beautiful, and make it black and white before I shot it? … I posted this photo…

  • Letting Go . . .

    October 29, 2011KarenBeth

    At some point in our life, we all let go of something – there cannot be life, without letting go of something or someone. We let go of old things we held onto, we pack them up in boxes and store them away, and we forget about them. We let go of friends that go their own way, as we go ours. We let go of people we love that have passed on. There are some things that are easier to let go than others, and there are some things that are devastating, and sometimes those devastating things are the hardest…

  • Long Road Ahead – “For Me”

    October 25, 2011KarenBeth

    When I saw this photo, my first reaction was “OH CRAP!” .. That is one big hill to climb! This is not really my idea of a “good workout” This looks like a leg killing, back aching, body sweating, emotional HIKE! But how else can you get to goodness, if you dont work hard for it? I am not putting this lightly.. this truly is a hard hill to climb. Sometimes in life we need to climb the big hills to appreciate what is on the other side.. for me I feel I have been climbing this hill most of my…

  • When Prayer Just isn’t Enough!

    October 24, 2011KarenBeth

    I was / am truly disappointed in God this past weekend.. yes I can actually say that and still love and honor him. I think God understands it when we can express our disappointment, because he knows that we do not understand the path that he has laid out for us. It’s hard to comprehend that God is looking out for us; protecting us – when we feel pain, sadness, or when we are struggling or suffering! This weekend was one of those moments that “prayer” was just not enough.. it wasn’t enough for me. No matter what I did, no matter how hard I tried, it got…

  • Holding onto Hope . . .

    October 21, 2011KarenBeth

    We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain – Hebrews 6:19 I truly believe that we cannot move forward in life without hope. What is hope? Hope is a feeling, its a need; a wish.. hope is something that drives us to move through whatever it is we are struggling with inside. Hope to me = Goodness and we all know that goodness is a feeling of content. For me, I hold onto hope everyday, and it holds onto me, or I would not be where I…
