Guard Your Heart

Guard Your Heart

Don't keep looking at the darkest skies They'll only swallow you up in lies  Don't forget there's a silver lining  Behind those greys is something worth finding. Don't keep buying what you cannot feel You may not see it That doesn't make it real Don’t forget that the sun still shines  We're not alone  But [...]

Power Outage

Power Outage

I'm not a big fan of sudden, unexpected power outages. As the case may be they're almost always sudden and unexpected. Life is the same way. Things have a way of changing on a dime.  Thankfully our power outage occurred on Monday morning after I'd posted on my blog, caught up with a friend, and [...]

Fighting Words

This isn’t what I planned on posting. I'm not feeling happy with what I was going to share, and to be honest the day is attempting to kick me in the teeth. As I started to get tearful, hope and joy began to run the other way. Get back here!!! Stop being cowards!!!! Okay, that [...]

Walking and Talking

Walking and Talking

Not to be confused with "Walkie-talkieing." Although... The above photo reveals the shoe of champions. No, really, they're called "Champions." I had such an amazing weekend. However, I didn't realize that it had gone so swimmingly until late Sunday afternoon. I've got some stories for you this week! Saturday morning I woke feeling emotionally flat. [...]

Comedy Relief

Comedy Relief

This is a little add on to my "The Sound of Rain" post. Andrew and I watched Louie Anderson's comedy act last night. When Louie got to the bit about rain I told Andrew that I needed to look this one up on Youtube. It's the perfect offset. Accepting Jesus' authority doesn't mean that life [...]

It’s Okay…

It’s Okay…

It's okay not to feel okay. These words are just as much for me as they are for anyone else who is struggling right now. There are a lot of really strong people doing a lot of great and brave things right now, and to be honest it makes me feel so inadequate. I was [...]
