I don't have much of an introduction other than I'm so tired of watching people hurt other people. I'm so tired of opinions and weak convictions. I'm so exhausted by the news and the pain I see. I'm sure many of you can relate. Thank you Shia. I stumbled on such a powerful story in … Continue reading Thursday Thoughts.
I'm not even sure how to start this post. I wrote out three sentences and deleted them all. I'm not going to reveal anything earth shattering so chill (😆)- but I don't know how to put into words what God has been trying to change in me. So this isn't a conventional post- just shooting … Continue reading Good/Bad
Since I had different friends growing up, my mom always warned me when I went to their houses, "if something or someone ever makes you feel uncomfortable, you call me right away, and I will pick you up." One time, I went to a friend's birthday party and her mom rented us movies (from BLOCKBUSTER!) … Continue reading Generous Obedience
CLIMBBBBB EVERY MOUNTAINNNN! Have you ever climbed a mountain before? I have in Guatemala, years ago. You needed some endurance for that hike but it was manageable. I still remember the next morning waking up literally in the clouds. It was the craziest thing. I also got a picture with a donkey. So.... I guess … Continue reading Zigzags & Circles
Kids can be ruthless sometimes. Back in my high school days I used to babysit this 5 year old boy. He wasn’t so bad to watch but sometimes he would have the worst tantrums (like kicking-me-in-the-face tantrums). I remember he used to love to play this spy video game and he would get so mad … Continue reading I Want What I Want
Ok, so I am throwing my original post out of the proverbial window and going with a recommendation topic from a friend. Ever walk into a place that was so intimidating that you automatically felt defeated? Ever face a big project, a new experience, that left you deflated instead of inflated? Ever step into a … Continue reading Why Name a Post “Home Depot?”
It's 8:25pm at the moment, our turkey burger dinner is still on the stove, Matt is still outside seeding our grass and my cat is walking over my laklsdl;jtp[e pw ;... laptop (okay, I did that just for the effect). Seems like the perfect night to write! So I'm just gonna go for it! Ever … Continue reading Apples to Oranges
Iffff you'reeee happy and you know it and you really want to show it. Iffff you'reeee happy and you know it- CLAP YOUR HANDS! We've been singing about wanting to be happy ever since we were young! Now that we are adults, it's easy to lose our contentment. When we are blinded by our difficult … Continue reading Iffff you’reeee happy and you know it clap your hands!
Let's talk about something simple/complicated.... Kindness. Kindness is really a simple concept, but it can be hard at times for multiple reasons. We all can agree that our world needs more of it but sometimes, we don't even do it ourselves!
You just gotta show up. Recently I shared a story with someone about something I received from another person (I promise the Dr. Seuss trail ends there). A total gift! Their response to my story was, “it just seems like God is blessing you because you are a pastor.” I kind of didn’t expect that … Continue reading Show Up
