Today’s thoughts have been stirred by Lysa Terkeurst from her blog post entitled “And then I received another rejection letter.” Lysa is now a renowned author and speaker. Her post today reflected upon all of the rejection and doubt she went through for years before ever being published. She quotes 2 Timothy 4:2, “Preach the Word; be prepared … Continue reading

Snow White and the Wine Stain

Snow White and the Wine Stain

Whether you drink it, cook with it, or have seen a movie with it, you know the second that wine hits that pure white fabric, it is there to stay. There is no amount of magic that can restore that crisp white. You can seltzer it, oxi-clean it, bleach it, and Aunt Hilda’s trick it, … Continue reading

I Went Out Last Night

I went out last night. That is how every bad country song begins. Last night, as I was comfy on the couch with some girl friends, eating pizza, talking, warm and comfortable when they decided I needed to go out. Of the five of us, 2 were dating, and the three of us were single. … Continue reading

2014~ The blur

I didn’t even remember my username or password. I wanted to write, but I did not. I had things to say, but I could not. I needed to put words into sentences, but they came not. 2014 was the year I questioned everything. Every post I deleted. Every thought I negated. Every truth I denied. … Continue reading

~2013~ A Year in Review

What did 2013 look like to me? Chaos. If I had a bird’s eye view, I am sure it was hilarious watching me scurry about dealing with change in every facet of my life.

The Wallflower

He was walking straight towards me. I averted my eyes, thinking that may deter him. Then, I see the toes of his shoes inches from mine. My heart is pounding.

Happiness and Sleepless

Tonight I tried to go to bed on time. It has been two hours since then. I have no motivation to sleep tonight. I am headed to my hometown tomorrow to spend a weekend with the family. I don’t even have anything packed. I am just excited to be going. I am also ridiculously happy … Continue reading

Tears on a Treadmill

[I forgot to post this on January 5] I have never been more appreciative of an empty gym than I was today, as I had a breakdown right there on the treadmill. It was one of those moments when inside, my heart just broke, and there was no stopping the flood. This is so not … Continue reading

Let Me Guess

Let me guess: you are going to eat a salad today, drink a few glasses of water, and go for a little jog? Hey- me too!  :) I don’t really do New Year resolutions. I more or less resolve in general to live my life to the fullest and best of my ability. Jesus said, … Continue reading
