The Mask


While the world is in an uproar and hoarding as much as they can for themselves, I’m being savvy and cooking only what we will eat for the day, staying inside, keeping our 1 meter distance between us and the next person, and creating my own necessities, including bleach wipes and most importantly face mask for my little one. When hospitals around the world started running out of PPE, I knew I had to do what was necessary to keep my family safe. We have stocked up on water and toiletries. When we go to the grocery store, we get what we need to get through the week, and now I don’t have to worry about being out exposed to anything without proper protection. It definitely doesn’t take place of the N95 mask, but something is better than nothing. I will post materials needed, steps, etc. in separate post. There are however, many tutorials out on making your own and you don’t have to be a world renowned seamstress to make them.

The best thing right now is for people to stay home. If you have to go and you don’t have a mask, use a scarf or anything that you have to cover your nose and mouth while out in public areas. If it’s not emergent stay home please! If you are sick, stay home! I live in Italy and this is day 13 of lockdown for us vs day 3 or 4 for the US. We only leave the house for grocery, work, or emergent medical appointments. If we are caught doing anything else besides that we could be fined and/or jailed! Italy is taking this very very seriously. Praying everyone is staying safe and please pray for this virus to soon pass!





Taking it Easy


Call into existence the things that do not exist (Rom 4:17).

As I spend the day resting, I cannot help but to thank God for the days events. Today after 10 years of TTC, we had our FET, and it was the most amazing and exciting thing to watch! I will keep you posted as the days go by, but for women that go through this journey to their life miracle, keep your eyes on God. Don’t dwell on your barrenness because it is just temporary. I have read about many women that have been trying for 1, 2, 3 years and I can feel the weight of the pain it causes. I don’t compare my long journey to anybody else’s, because regardless how long you have been trying, it is a painful, depressing, and sometimes lonely place to be when month after month you end up with disappointment. If we don’t guard our minds, and be careful about what we chose to dwell on, we begin to focus on all that is impossible! This type of thinking can keep God from doing great things in your life. He wants us to lean and depend on Him. With man it is impossible, but with God all things are possible. My little bundle of joy is nesting snuggly in my womb where he/she will grow for the next 9 months. I already believe that it is well, because God did not bring my husband and I this far for nothing. Whatever it is you are praying for, call it into existence before it even manifest. That is how you activate your faith and allow God to work mighty on your behalf. Thank you for reading, and stay tuned in days to come as I keep you all up-to-date! Please like, comment, and follow. If you have been through infertility and want to talk please comment and we can dialogue and encourage each other through this life journey. 

Xoxo, Al

Ice Cream Date


Happy Resurrection Sunday to you all! What a beautiful day it was! I pray that your day was filled with prayer, praise, and power in the name of Jesus! Lent has come to an end which means babe and i can enjoy some delightful delicacies in moderation. We have gone 40 days without sugar and I included dairy in that mix. We had a great time in service today, the weather was amazing, and what better way to close out our day then to stop for a sweet treat. Cold stone is one of our favorite stops. I decided to get my usual “cheesecake blast” Love It, but opted for a waffle bowl today. Why, I didn’t even eat half of the waffle bowl. “My eyes were bigger than my belly” as they say. The chocolate was too much for me, but the ice cream, was on point as always. I am predicting this to be a positive week, full of God’s rich blessings. Our day started off at 500am, the word from my Pastor was outstanding as usual, and babe and I are awaiting some exciting things that have been promised to us to come to pass. How did everyone spend their weekend and your Easter Sunday? As always thank you for stopping by and reading. Please like, comment, and follow.
