Life Undefeated is Back in Business

Great Monday morning to you!

Last June, I took a break from blogging due to some health issues.

Well, God has been beyond amazing. He is too faithful to fail. I am SO GLAD to announce that I’m back to posting here!

Overwhelming victory is ours through Christ.
(Romans 8:37)

I still have more recovery time ahead, so my other two blogs are still on hiatus, but I’m coming back to them as soon as possible. It’s not long now. I just felt it was time to start back here.

I’ve missed you all and love you so much. I have a lot on my heart to share and I’m beyond excited. New post coming next week!

Tell me something great! What’s been the best part of your Monday? What has God been up to in your life?

P.S. No more is up and running with an all-new design!

    Hellooooooooooooo madiiiiiiiiiiii 😀 😀 😀
    *throws chocolate at you* My Monday has kinda sucked so I’m aggressively cheering you on. Hmm the best part of my day so far….I’m eating my chocolate bunny today. If say I cannot, because its too big, or my mother won’t let me eat it all in one sitting, you are a fool. Just you watch me.
    Now I’m off to explore your new blog design ? *peering suspiciously*
    Most crazily, ~Olive

    What wonderful news! I’m so happy to see you are back. As you noted, I hope you take it slowly.
    Overall, i kind of have a “case of the Mondays.” It’s overcast, raining, and quite dreary here. However, I just had a lovely lunch, finished a great book, AND got your terrific news! A wonderful Monday indeed!

    • Madi May 13, 2019 at 2:52 pm - Reply

      Thank you so, so much! Will do. It’s super rainy here, too—not my ideal weather, but still a great Monday as well. I hope you have a fantastic rest of your Monday and thank you for commenting! ❤️

    Praise God, Madi! I’m so glad you’re back 🙂 GOD IS GOOD! Seeing you back is so encouraging… perfect for a dreary, rainy monday full of studying for math finals (blech). The most exciting thing in my life recently is that my Mom is expecting a baby girl… we’re all so excited! ❤
