"You will find that it is necessary to let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy. So let them go, let go of them. I tie no weights to my ankles." C. Joybell C. I read this quote recently, I admit: rather than the authors voice or perspective, I heard the heart… Continue reading heavy burdens.
I brought this big fella out of storage and into the nook where I do yoga a little bit ago. It's a shitty mat job (I did it myself years ago without the proper equipment - it's sad) but I love him. I called him 'the bone daddy' after Jack Skellington form The Nightmare Before… Continue reading beautiful things.
"You're always one decision away from a completely different life." I saw this a while ago and it's been floating around my mind for a bit. And just thinking in context, I have a few friends going through some very personal but very familiar stuff, and I'm just struck by just how absolutely true this… Continue reading make a decision.
I stopped my cousin mid-sentence yesterday because she said something that totally took me back. She was telling me about her plans for next week, and she said she'd be doing something on the first of September. And that the first of September is next Friday. I interrupted her to ask "how are we already… Continue reading life is short, but you can’t rush healing.
I was talking with someone lately about Christian things, and nothing makes me feel more like a freaking hypocrite than giving godly advice, even if it's good advice. This sucks because a lot of the problems I've had in my recent Christian history is with hypocrites. I've let so many people come into my life… Continue reading on hypocrites and Jesus.
I've found that writing in the moment of a thought or a feeling has done me much better as of late than sitting on something to write about and work through later. So right now, I'm writing from the passenger seat of our family van on the way home from vacation. We're in the rainy… Continue reading tell me your story again.
Maybe because I just listened to a message at church about "not checking your brain at the door" (about how intellectual people can be people of great faith), or maybe I'm just petty, or possibly a little hormonal (not pregnant, just female), but on our way home today, as we listened to our local Christian… Continue reading wounded is wounded is wounded.
I'm Sam. If you're reading this, you most likely know me. I'm going to share a lot of info here most likely, and while I'm not ashamed, there's a lot of mistakes I intend to cover that I don't want to sound proud of either. I hope that doesn't inhibit our friendship here. A few… Continue reading formerly known as having it all together.
Guys. I was so excited to start a new blog (which I did - and it's whatever, but I've decided that samfindsfaith.com is my blogging home and I'm back here now) and rant all the time about my messed up imperfect life, and I suck at that too! One post in, and its already like… Continue reading okay, so sometimes I suck at being a blogger.
A few weeks ago, our church went through a major shift. We meet in a middle school auditorium and we’re just about to a point in our growth that we need to graduate from functioning as a church plant into an established church. Anyway, this post isn’t about that. This post is about something that… Continue reading He says what He means and He means what He says.
