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.

better than the best day of your life.

The morning of September 6, I literally decided that I was going to find a Psalm and read it. So, I flipped through and seemingly randomly selected Psalm 84. One particular verse stood out, it was Psalm 84:10: “Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper… Continue reading better than the best day of your life.

all dogs go to heaven, pt. 2

Murphy had been the best of all friends, the most compassionate companion, and the most loyal of all dogs I’ve related to in my lifetime. He carried more character and spirit in his eyes than most people I knew. He was the first man in this life to love me unconditionally and his goofy and… Continue reading all dogs go to heaven, pt. 2

Anyway, in light of everyone feeling like it was going to be the end of the world, because the Mayan's said it would… Continue reading 12.21.12 and the doomsday preppers.

why God lets bad things happen, pt. 2.

About a year ago, I sat down and wrote a short post about "why God lets bad things happen." At the time, I was a brand new baby Christian, barely saved a month, and I was standing next to my best friend from high school as we buried her little sister. Morgan was 20 years… Continue reading why God lets bad things happen, pt. 2.

hit me, baby, one more time.

I read a quote yesterday by a man who was talking about God "revealing" something to him and this is how he worded it - I loved it: "When I say God has "revealed something" to me, it's really just a polite way of saying "hit me between the eyes with a 2x4." A lot… Continue reading hit me, baby, one more time.
