My Love Story {Today is a Good Friday}

This pic was taken after I prayed to accept Jesus in my life.  

Today, as I reflect I still remember that special day I gave my life to my Lord Jesus.  

I had the blessing of having my husband Ruben lead me to Christ.  At the time, he was my boyfriend and we had only dated for six months.  You see, it was all part of the plan.  God’s plan.  The Lord works like that.  He knows us better than we know ourselves.  

On a quiet spring afternoon, Ruben drove me to this little church.  We walked inside.   No one was there.  Since Ruben was part of the staff, he had a key.  So we had the church all to ourselves.  I thought we were going there to eat lunch and play drums.  

But God! 

Little did I know, I was minutes away from making the greatest decision of my life!  

We sat together on a pew.  Ruben began to explain the plan of salvation to me and had me read verses in the Bible.  He told me that Jesus came to forgive me of all my sin.  

I knew this was serious.  I felt the atmosphere change.  Tears flooded my eyes.  My heart felt like it would explode.  There was a battle brewing up inside of me.  

Then, I got down on my knees with Ruben and prayed.  

For the first time, I knew the answer for my life was Jesus.  I wanted Him.  

I asked him to forgive me and told Him I wanted to serve Him all of my life.  

It was simple and beautiful.  

At that moment, I felt clean.  I knew I was different.  

All of the pain of my past was healed and the shame of my sin was gone.  

I can’t believe it has been 20 years already?  Time sure goes by fast.  

Even now, as I write this, tears come to my eyes.  Tears of thankfulness.  Tears of joy.  

I'm so thankful to Ruben, my husband who was obedient to the Lord.  He shared the gospel with me and that is truly special.   That is true love.  

I can say that serving God and living for Jesus is the Only way and the Best way.  

Without Him, I am nothing!  He has delivered me from fear, curses, and death.  
He has given me love, joy, peace . . . Life and life more abundantly.  Freedom! 

This is my story, my Love story.  

I encourage you to remember your love story!  The Love story between you and your Savior.  Talk about it.  Tell your children.  Tell others.  When we are in love, we want to share it.  Don’t we?  Share His love.  He loves you my friend!  

Fall in love with your First love again. 

Blessings and Shalom, 










My Love Story:  A Poem to Honor My Lord

On a Good Friday 20 years ago, a young woman gave her life to Jesus.  

She was 18 years old.  

Her guilt and shame was washed away.  

She was forgiven and made whole that special day.  

A new journey for her life she was embarking.  

She was no longer on the road to death and destruction but on the road of life.  

Life and life abundantly.  


She became a child of God.  A woman of faith.  God’s Beauty.  

It was a day the angels partied in heaven because her name was written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.  

It seems profound that all of this could have happened in one moment.  

A moment of surrender. 

A moment of giving up her desires and dreams 

For the One she had been searching for all of her life. 

Nothing else could pay the bill.  No one else could satisfy. 

No, that day, she was overwhelmed by the love of her Savior.  

And for the first time, she knew the truth.  


It would be a growing journey of faith, trials and perseverence.  

Only God knew. 

With arms wide open she fell into the arms of her loving Father. 

Walking by faith and trusting His every step as He led her along the way. 


20 years later,

I am that woman.  

I am no longer young. 

Through it all, I have trusted. 

I have seen the true love of a redeeming and forgiving Father. 

Through the years, I have seen 

the power of prayer

the power of love 

and the power in the blood 

Of the Passover lamb.  

A tender sacrifice, yet so profound.  

He gave His life so I may be found. 


With one trace,  He reached down and gave me peace and loving grace. 

Where would I be, if that day I would have not chosen Him?

Where would I be without the life I have in Him?

Surely, He has saved me.  

To God be the glory, for the things He has done.  


Now it’s your turn.

Today could be your Good Friday? 

Surrender if you haven’t already.  Jesus died to set you free from sin.  

He has the power through his blood to forgive. 

He is calling you back to Him.  

Ask forgiveness for your sin and call upon the Name of the Lord to be saved. 

This is your story.  This is your song. 

Praising your Savior all the day long.

Best Ways to Wear Pretty Pastels This Spring!

I love spring!  It's my favorite season.  

Maybe, it's because I got married in March?  Could it be because I gave birth to my daughter  this season?   I'm positive it's all of the above.  I'm a little partial.   

Also, spring is the time to celebrate Jesus' death and resurrection along with observing the Passover Feast with our family.  

A time of friends, and family gatherings.  Love and Life!  Fullness and Joy! 

I just love the concept of all things becoming new and full of life again after a long dormant winter.    I am reminded of this favorite Bible verse:  
My beloved spoke, and said to me: 

Rise up, my love, my fair one, 
And come away.
For lo, the winter is past, 
The rain is over and gone. 
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of singing has come,
And the voice of the turtledove
Is heard in our land. 

Song of Solomon 2:  10-12

So from that, I share my inspiration with you!  


I really love wearing pastels during springtime.  I think it's fun to add color to my spring wardrobe and makeup.  So when I saw that pastels are in this season, I was completely overjoyed! 

I'd wear them anyways if they weren't in style, but you know what I mean.   
Here are some ways to wear them this season.

MM: Marriage Monday {How to Find God's Will For Your Marriage}



When Ruben and I were planning our future we saw it clearly, but sadly we were not seeing what God was seeing for us. 

Our ambitions were selfish and methodical. 

Like many, we had a plan. 

We were on a road to becoming elementary school teachers. My husband was specializing in Bilingual education and I was specializing in Early childhood and were already selected for the Teacher Preparation Block Program at Arizona State University. 

"Those days" are what we called our Hell Days, because deep down we were running away from what the Lord had called us to do.

Ruben and I worked so hard during long nights of writing reports only to never sleep then go to work and do it all over again. Some weeks went by where we never slept, and when we did, it was hibernation season for the both of us.

At this time, we were newlyweds, married only a few months.  As semesters went on, the pressure on our shoulders weighed heavy. 

We tried to enjoy our new marriage, but college took priority. We weren’t going to church at this time.  There was no time.  We were doing nothing for the Lord's kingdom purposes, yet we believed that someday we would. . . on our time. 

Our plan was that after we graduated and after we had our teaching careers and after we had our new home, and after we had our new car, then we would work for God and do what He had called us to do. Only then. 

 Someday I'm gonna, someday I will.  

You see, Ruben and I had plans for a future. You know? The American Dream.  We had a "do better than our parents did" mentality.  

We were going to be the first ones in our families to earn a college degree. Our dreams of becoming a living success were going to come true.  That's what I thought.  

Finally it hit!  

During a night class, a sense of dissatisfaction came over me. We were sitting in groups and as I looked across the room and saw Ruben in his group, I said to myself, “what am I doing here?”.   

For an instant I felt like a fish out of cold water. A feeling of repentance came over me and I jumped up and ran out of the room. As I approached the hall all I could do was fall to the floor and scream. 

Tears were flooding my eyes and Holy Spirit was speaking to me, “YOU both are not following my will for your lives!". 

As I talked out loud to Jesus, on that university corridor floor, on my knees,  I knew I was desperate. 

It was either going to go two ways.  I would have a nervous break down OR my entire life would be changed. 

I surrendered as I screamed out, “If I’m not suppose to be here, then where am I suppose to be? Show me Lord!".   

I heard no answer. 

I felt someone grab my arm.  It was Ruben. “What is wrong with you!” he said with this deep look of concern on his face.  I said, “I don’t know”.   He was so confused by my crazy behavior, as he helped me up off the floor and said, “we’re leaving!”. 

When I heard those words, a funny sense of calm peace came over me.   As we slowly walked out of the corridor and walked off the campus I was so relieved.  

Later that evening, deep down, the words of Holy Spirit lingered.  It was the turning point in our marriage.  A time of sweet surrender.  

How many times do we surrender our marriage to God's will?  

Over and over again.  

God's will for marriage is perfect.  

I have realized the Lord does have a plan and purpose for the marriage covenant. 

It's a beautiful plan.  An expressive plan of His craftsmanship.  

Two becoming one flesh for His kingdom purposes. 

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 tells us:  
Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor.  For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up.  Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone?  And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.
A powerful thing you can do as a married couple is surrender your will to the Lord! 

Ask God what He wants you to do together.   Become a "Power Couple" and say "Here we are Lord, not our will, but YOUR will be done in our marriage".  

Make time to follow His will today.  

Don't allow the foolish things of this world to take priority over following God's will for your life.  It's not worth it.  

Surrender your marriage to Jesus, His way is perfect. 

Blessings and Shalom,
