What will it be like?

🎶🎶What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see when I look upon His face the One who saved me by His grace. When He takes my by the hand and leads me through the promise land what a day, glorious day that will be.🎶🎶

Tonight at 6:37pm our church lost an incredible lady. She was a prayer warrior and sacrificed so much for our church. She was a prayerful lady. She is loved by SO many! She was one of my elders that I looked up too. (And I don’t look up to that many people). She had a big impacted on our church and everyone she came in contact with. She will be missed so dearly!!

But I started thinking:

What she is experiencing right now is what she has lived for her whole life.

She is walking on streets of gold.

She has gotten to hear “Well done my good and faithful servant!”

She has seen Jesus face to face.

She has gotten to see the ones who have gone before her again.

She is living in paradise!! I can’t even imagine what she is experiencing right now. Oh, what a day it will be! I know we will all grieve the loss of her, but we can also rejoice, for she has gone on to her prize! God’s will has been done. Heaven needed her more than we did and we will get to see her again one day, one glorious day.

So even though we lost her, we also know she doesn’t have to deal with anymore pain or suffering of this world!

(She had cancer 4 times but she doesn’t have to deal with it NO MORE!)


This song just came to my mind here are the lyrics:

Why are you saying goodbye?
Why are you so far away?
I barely can see you now
The light is beginning to fade
I still remember your touch
And the sound of your voice
You would have stayed if you could have made the choice

Now that you know where Heaven is

You wouldn’t trade that world for this
You wouldn’t give up the streets made of gold now that you know

Now that you’ve reached that Holy Place

Now that you’ve looked upon His face
The half has never been told, now that you know

The river of time will roll on

Days will turn into years
As long as you’re in my heart
You will always be near
If you were offered this life once again
And eternity’s bridge could be burned
I’m sure you’d say “no”, you’d never want to return
Now that you know where Heaven is
You wouldn’t trade that world for this
You wouldn’t give up the streets made of gold now that you know
Now that you’ve reached that Holy Place
Now that you’ve looked upon His face
The half has never been told, now that you know

I know I’ll see you there
Now that you know where Heaven is
You wouldn’t trade that world for this
You wouldn’t give up the streets made of gold now that you know

Now that you’ve reached that Holy Place
Now that you’ve looked upon His face
The half has never been told, now that you know
You wouldn’t change a single thing
Now that you’ve heard the angels sing
The half has never been told, now that you know.

Now that you know where Heaven is you wouldn’t trade that world for this. Go live with Jesus now Sis. Pat! You have definitely deserved it. I love you, Sis. Pat!❤

All I can say is “Thank you!”.

THANK YOU!! EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. OF. YOU.

We have officially made it to 200+ followers!🎊 I really appreciate all of you! And I’m not just saying that, I really do. You have inspired me to keep blogging. So… I thank you!❤ I hope you all enjoy reading my blog.

I never thought I’d have 200+ people reading what I have to say. (Kinda cool).😜 Thank you all again! I love ya’ll!❤


Totally off topic: but ya’ll keep me in your prayers please. I have this abscess or something on my right gum inside my mouth. There is a little pus coming out of it so I don’t know what it is. It could be my wisdom tooth coming through but I still don’t know why pus would be coming out though. It’s making my body feel tired and exhausted so hopefully the dentist can give me some meds for it. I think I’m going to the dentist tomorrow if I can get a appointment in time. Keep me in your prayers!


Question: What do you want me to blog about more?

Stay strong!! ~ Vanessa W

It’s Spring!

It is officially Spring ya’ll!!

It is currently 70°F and sunny outside. (I’m actually in a tree right now.😂) Don’t believe me?

I’m in a tree blogging.

So I wanted to share some pictures I’ve taken over the last few days. To help you get into Spring.🤷‍♀️😂

The last one is my favorite!😍

What is your favorite?🤔


Story time: So within the last 24 hours I have busted 2 of my knuckles. I have managed to pinch a piece of my skin off of one of my fingers. I have burned 2 of my fingers and I have somehow hurt my arm and it hurts to pick things up…. And that all happened on my right hand/arm. Apparently I need to wrap myself in bubble wrap or something.😂 Here are some pictures.


Hopefully, I’ll stop hurting myself.😂 (This was all on accident, I’m not actually hurting myself on purpose.)😉

Thank you all for reading! I hope enjoy Spring!!❤

What is Hope?

What is hope? According to Mr. Webster, it means to cherish a desire with an expectation of fulfillment.

Hope is a confident anticipation of good. It is not just wishful thinking or thinking positive. It is not the same as saying, “Well, I hope so.” Hope is as solid as a helmet, but no helmet will protect you from danger if you have laid it aside. When we lose hope we lose the battle.

You may feel like your world is crashing in around you, but you must be able to say to yourself, “Something good is about to happen.” Many times you won’t feel like it. You may feel abandoned, and have no idea at all how you’re going to make it. You’re going to have to reach deep into God’s resources, because no one has any reserves of their own to keep moving forward.

The whole thing is a heart battle and there are three typical responses to pain or rejection that deaden our hearts:

  1. We move away from people and God.
  2. We move toward some other source of relief or acceptance.
  3. We move against others.

In order to learn to hope again, one must go back to their ABCs, to their foundations. I figured out three core values:

(1) God is good all the time; (2) “all things work together for good to them who love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28); and (3) something good is just about to happen.

Hope is vital to your well being. How can you start to find it again?

  • Evaluate your responses to your pain. Get help to find your way past automatic reactions such as bitterness and despair.
  • Figure out the core values of your life.
  • Put on your “helmet of the hope of salvation” ( 1 Thessalonians 5:8), which protects your soul and spirit.

If we don’t have hope we have nothing. Keep holding on to hope and Jesus even if you have nothing else to hold on to.

The theme “Marching on” means to keep going no matter what. That’s what it means to me. No matter what you have been through you can keep marching on. This song just came to my mine and I have to share it. It’s a song I used to sing when I was really little but this reminded me of it.

I may never march in the infantry
Ride in the cavalry
Shoot the artillery
I may never shoot for the enemy
But I’m in the Lord’s army!
I’m in the Lord’s army!
I’m in the Lord’s army!
I may never march in the infantry
Ride in the cavalry
Shoot the artillery
I may never shoot for the enemy
But I’m in the Lord’s army!

That is from one of my friends. Lol. And my family would pinch me too! So, I kinda have to wear green on St. Patrick’s day. Haha!

4.If you spotted a leprechaun, followed him, saw a rainbow

and a pot of gold…what would the gold be to you? Actual gold? Or something else?

I would love to look in the pot of gold and see Jesus and see what heaven looks like! That would be pure gold to me! Money is nothing to me really…

5. What shade of green is your favorite? Provide an image if possible.

Image result for neon green

What I like the best about March is Spring break!! What I like least about March is Spring break ends…lol.
