My name is Christy Vines and I am a Texas girl born and raised. I probably have an accent, but it doesn’t show since I’m surrounded by other West Texans. I’m a wife and mom to two precious girls, a handsome little boy and we are expecting to add another baby late this year. This blog is a place I can put my thoughts “out” there, mostly for family & friends who are interested in what is going on in our day to day lives. Also I hope to offer encouragement to other women who are attempting to navigate through this world with grace & dignity. (Proverbs 31:25)
I think I always expected something absolutely magical to happen once I began actively walking in relationship with God. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change this life I lead for anything. However many days it is less than magical. Life can be boring, mundane, frustrating… you name it. BUT with Christ, my life always has purpose. I love the Lord and have a passion for His Word. I strive to see life through the lens and perspective of scripture in the midst of all circumstances. The Word is TRUTH and in this world we live in, we so desperately need this consistent foundation to combat the difficulties, emotions & circumstances challenging our beliefs.(2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
My prayer is the Lord may use this blog to encourage and comfort women struggling to find their identity in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17) Life is difficult. We need each other. We need each other to be real and not try to “dress it up” all of the time. Because of the community of believers God has placed around me, I’m learning it’s okay to be real. I’m so grateful for the women God has given me to share life with. I pray we don’t forsake one another as we make our journey through this life.
