The Weekly.

Good Morning, My Friend…

Sending you sunshine and smiles today as you enter another week…

Reading this book by the gifted, Meghan Fate Marshman, Meant For Good and learning to be intentional in finding the goodness and kindness of God when a week full of struggle presents. 

Clinical.

Twins and Mag and Pre-eclampsia oh, my….

This week held a few of the more challenging shifts as I welcomed my first family of twins, supported a pre-eclamptic mama on that terrible magnesium, managed too many babes in -utero that required emergency intervention, assisted in a trial of labor after caesarean, moms on drugs and babies withdrawing, and my first Code Emergency CS. It was quite a week to say the least….this week reminded me in so many ways of the fragility of life and pushed me to look hard to see the good. 

This week reminded me of how precious life really is. When the moments of concern came and the moments of wondering and waiting and looking for hope, I found my purpose in these moments and there was the goodness of God as I shared kindness with these precious mamas and babes. When I reached out my hand and held that mamas face, telling her she was safe. That we would remain by her side to help welcome her struggling baby. And to that mama on mag, that drug that just zaps your body of all strength and might…to that mama, I held out my hand, I turned down the lights, and offered a whisper of hope saying that this too shall pass. 

What beauty in the struggle this week had to show me…and what Goodness I have found in seeing God’s purposes be brought about even in the struggle. 

.

How might God be challenging you to LOOK for His goodness that surrounds you this week? I’d love for you to share your thoughts in the comments. 

Must-Haves: 

*I love the natural beauty of these bracelets! Perfect for creating the stacked look with such simplicity and grace.

*Essential Oil Goodie of the Week: Dragon Time – this stuff is my lifeline during that lovely time of the month for us ladies 😉 I use this to solve all the PMS problems, using a roller bottle atop and applying to the abdomen multiple times a day. Such a great support for your hormones during that time!

******************************************************************************

Love on your people & keep in perspective your beautiful legacy in light of eternity.

Love and Blessings,

 Lindsey xoxo

    Beautiful post young Lady! I am looking for goodness this week in the eyes of rugged construction workers, and helping them to see the importance of working in a safe manner so they may have the blessed opportunity to go home to their perspective loved ones, and trying to model that in my own life as well. We are not guarenteed another breath, never mind another day. So being kind and embracing every moment we get with others is vital., so we can shine the love of Christ when He calls us to it. In actions, and even in words as He leads.
    Love you Sunshine! 🙂 XOXOXO, Daddy

  4. Thank you for challenging us to search our thoughts and hearts to look for where we see God’s goodness shining amidst the hard and messy stuff of life! I had to pause to really give some time to think about how that question challenges me personally. In a season where I am faced with challenges to my health and my energy runs low and it’s hard to escape the “physical” discomfort and remain disciplined to the practice of “remembering”, I truthfully sometimes find it hard to “see” God’s goodness amidst the “circumstances”. And so this question challenges me 😉. I am continually learning how important it is to pay attention to what I’m “looking at”! Where is my gaze?! When I choose to look to God and His Word, I see where God is so beautifully “reminding” me that He, the Sovereign Lord, is my strength and it is He who enables me to find Victory and Triumph in challenging times (Habakkuk 3:18-19) Jesus is my source for all I need and thus I can rejoice in His goodness. He has blessed me with His Truth that even if my circumstances lead me to feelings of fatigue and discomfort, I can choose to meditate on His Truth and allow His promises to bring me hope and fill me with His Joy. That is a Good God…His goodness surrounds me and I can find rest in knowing that I am loved by a God who uses ALL THINGS for my good (Romans 8:28-29). 🥰

Yes and amen🤍 I really love your question, ‘where is my gaze?’…this inspires some deeper contemplation and the opportunity to look for the beauty of God that surrounds us. Always so thankful for your grace and wisdom🤍

    We don’t always see where God is calling us to serve because it doesn’t look like we imagine, it doesn’t feel like we imagine, and yet, God equips us to bring His light and life to others. We do what we can and leave the results in the Master’s hands. Thank you for sharing.

    Dearest Lindsey, God sent your post to me today to reassure me of His Goodness, and refocus my eyes on the hope we have in our God who is always good. My granddaughter, Ellie, has a sweet friend, Britney Budwell, who ,as I type, is delivering her set of twins who are only 26 1/2 weeks. I must admit I am fighting fearfulness for her and the precious twins. But how can I be fearful? God has a plan for each one of His children and He is able to perfect these precious lives into that plan for His glory. Thanks for sharing your personal walk within your nursing of Momma’s at this time in their lives. I am encouraged by your hopefulness in a Good and Loving Heavenly Father. Blessings, Sharron

    1. Oh friend, praise the Lord for His faithfulness to use each of our stories to show His glory and bring hope. Praying for this dear mama as she welcomes tiny humans into this world~ she has a long journey ahead, but one filled with strength and grace.
