The Weekly.

Good Morning, Lovely!

It’s been awhile….

The past month has held a lot for me. A lot of learning, personally and professionally. A lot of trying to find answers to this wandering space I feel. A lot of pushing in and letting go and learning to trust my unknown future to the One who already knows. A lot of discovery in finding that the emptiness of happiness comes from chasing happenings whereas JOY comes from focusing on Christ. Being challenged to focus on that JOY and anticipate the goodness of God in all things…

The past couple weeks have brought some challenges with unique patient situations….new moms and CPS cases, sick babes and overwhelmed mamas. It’s been a lot of bending down at the bedside, holding the hand and gently stroking away the tears of fear and anxiety, reassuring the mom in the back of the ambulance as I help transport her and her baby to a higher-level of care, learning how in the world you speak with grace to that 19 year old, who you just had to report to CPS for too many reasons to count while the lady down the hall just delivered her stillborn baby at 25 weeks…

In this place called labor and delivery….with the rhythms of joy and mourning that pass through here, I’m reminded that our longer journey through life is a lot like this place. Life has no waiting rooms-Life only has labor and delivery rooms. And waiting rooms are actually birthing rooms and what feels like the contraction of our plans can be the birthing of greater purposes. Sometimes we get to see these greater purposes in the first cry of new life and other times the greater purposes come through great sorrow and mourning. Learning how to live in this place I get to call my work and it’s teaching me how to live outside this place too…learning that the rhythm of joy and mourning has a purpose…

Must-Haves://

*Love, Love, Love this floral sheet set! Just bought this set for my room and I am loving the feminine beauty that it brings to my space. All things flowers, all day long!

*Essential Oil Goodie of the Week: Ylang Ylang Essential Oil~ This oil has been one of my go-to oils lately. It’s scent has a warmth and beauty to it…paired with vanilla in the diffuser creates a relaxing and inspiring mood. Ylang Ylang is great for hormonal stability and I love rubbing a drop or two on my wrists when I’m feeling a bit moody!

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

Love and Blessings,

    You may never see those moms again, but I bet they will never forget you and how you helped them through such difficult moments! You bring such compassion and love to those around you! So proud of you, and love seeing you walk out this calling!
