beautiful things.

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.

I’m good! It’s okay! I’m fine! 

I'm reading a book right now called Nothing To Prove by Jennie Allen and it's great. I'm sure I'll write about so much coming out of my heart because of this book in the near future. But right now, I've got to be real about something. Because Jennie talks a little bit about this in… Continue reading I’m good! It’s okay! I’m fine!

life is short, but you can’t rush healing. 

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.

on hypocrites and Jesus.

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.

tell me your story again. 

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.

I conquer.

A few weeks ago, I submitted an application to volunteer at my church. Because I'm an adult, I had to sign off on a background check, supply a few personal references, and answer some questions about my life and capabilities. One question in particular asked if I'd ever been a victim of any physical or… Continue reading I conquer.

one day at at time.

Okay, I'll admit it. I've got more than a few bad habits. And one of them happens to be that I tend to worry about stuff that isn't happening yet. I get so caught up sometimes in what might or could be that I start missing what IS. And you know, sadly, I've done this… Continue reading one day at at time.

too much humility is pride.

Tonight, I learned a very interesting fact about pride. Turns out, it's not always what you think it is. See, when I think of pride, I think of people who think of people who won't admit they're wrong, people who think they're perfect, or people who won't accept help. But it was pointed out to… Continue reading too much humility is pride.

don’t ‘what if’ yourself to death.

I spend way too much of my time saying, "what if..?" Before today, though, I never really believed that was all that bad of a thing. I spent 2 whole days, "what ifing" my life and the path that it may or may not take. But... Last night, I literally laid myself down though, after… Continue reading don’t ‘what if’ yourself to death.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…

I feel like that name makes people uncomfortable. I'm not sure why - I mean, it's not like saying Beetlejuice, He came here to save you... But, hey. Who am I to understand other people's thought processes... [This post might go in a few different directions. I'm not sure what's going to happen here, so… Continue reading Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…
