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 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.
In the musical, Children of Eden (while not completely Biblically accurate, still a beautiful show), the story of Creation and the Fall are depicted in Act 1. Eve was deceived and eats the fruit. She tricks Adam by making it into a juice and lying to him about what’s in it. God confronts them, but,… Continue reading we don’t want God, we want blessings.
The devil is not a nice guy. Not. At. All. And I'll tell the truth about something that some people might not like: The devil has a least 2 things in common with God. The first: he wants our souls for all of eternity. Like stated in Luke 22:31; "...behold, Satan demanded to have you."… Continue reading some things I’ve learned about the devil.
Sometimes I close my eyes and pray, "God, I'm just sorry. I don't know what else to say. I don't know why I fail You the way that I do. And Jesus - the perfect spotless and blameless one - what do I say to you? The one who overcame all temptation to sin in… Continue reading You love me anyway.
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.
You know, it's funny. I knew months ago that I'd be writing this particular post someday... But all I had was a title. I set the title and started trying to write it a number of times. See, the way I've always gauged whether or not God approves of what I'm writing is if He… Continue reading You give and take away.
I feel like half of my world has been turned on its head this past week. It's as if my life were a puzzle and someone just came by and took a third of the pieces. It's funny how much of a void one person can leave behind. With my boyfriend, left his family, and… Continue reading overcome.
A few Sunday's ago, I was having a really rough morning. I work on Saturday nights, and I had gotten stuck there late, so I was exauhsted on Sunday. I also usually allow my 2 year old to wake me up, and wouldn't you know it? She took her time that day and slept in. So I… Continue reading the renewal of a not-a-morning-person.
I'm not perfect. But sometimes, I feel like some of the people around me, especially those closest to me, just expect me to be perfect. Whether it be that I always keep my emotions in check, or I graduate from college, or I don't drink, or I don't gossip, or I don't have a rockin'… Continue reading why I’m not a perfectionist.
