• My list was…

    Eat more donuts!!!  There you have it, folks, easy peasy!   Oh, wow, if only that were true!! Seriously, now (kind of).  Since May 20, 2020, I am still down 9.6 pounds.  The scales have lingered around that number for a…

  • I Want an Empty Cup!

    I stumbled upon this quote recently and while I’ve heard it many times, it struck me so strongly.  I thought about the irony of how I used to feel so empty.  That emptiness caused me to feel useless, lost, hopeless… …

  • Beautifully Broken

    I have a newfound love for the beach so much so it kind of shocks me.  I used to think it was just uhh… too sandy and the water was scary (that part hasn’t changed much for me).  I may…

  • Revving the Engine.

  • The Person in the Pew.

    If I’ve learned one thing (among a thousand) it’s that you never know what that person in the pew is going through on Sunday morning.  It may be the person a few rows ahead or a few rows back, it…

  • Outside looking in.

    While I want so desperately for this to be a positive space all the time, life just isn’t like that. Things happen, not always good things, but they make us who we are, right?  And if you’re like me, memories…

  • The Morning After.

    I sat here this morning trying to envision what Jesus’ followers must have felt like the morning after they watched his execution.  While I cannot attest to its biblical accuracy, I can only attest to this being what I picture…
