One Word 2016

By now you guys know that I don’t do New Years resolutions and instead choose a word to help guide me through the year – or I should say, I pray about a word and, eventually, God will lay a word on my heart with so much gusto that I couldn’t shake it if I […]

Singing A New Song

One year ago… today…  I drove away from home. It’s the second time in my life when all my possessions were tucked away into a truck to be hauled miles and miles away from the place I called home. When I left Michigan, it was hard, but it was for work. I didn’t have a […]

Underface

Shel Silverstein has been one of my favorites since I was young. I still flip through pages of his poems and find my inner girl, my inner broken soul, and my underface. While the last several months have been really super and I’ve been blessed over and over by people who love me and I […]

Being Victorious… and that’s okay.

2 Corinthians 2:14 (NASB) But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.

I’ve been having a hard time with this first blog post, from my new home. In part, I feel like I have too much to share. In part, I don’t know what to share and what not to share. And finally, some of it is really good and some of it is a struggle. All […]

Freedom Reigns!

I’ve been putting off this post. I had to wait. To be sure. To have all the kinks worked out. It’s true! After months of planning and sorting and figuring, my man child will be joining me in Texas, after all! His plan was to stay here until next summer and join me then, but […]

My cup is full… and then some.

Today was beautiful with just a splash of suckiness… Suckiness is not a real word. I made it up. It’s gonna be all right. And it was only a little “sucky” because I was sad. For seven years, I’ve been held tight by an organization that molded me. Changed me. Loved me. Cherished me. My […]

Finding my serenity, finally.

Psalm 119:10 – I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. In the last couple of weeks, things have become a bit manic in my world. I knew when things started happening; it would be fast and furious. It has been. It is. The good news is that […]
