Everything is Meaningless

While many people hate and bash on New Years and setting goals, I personally love it. I think it’s a healthy and helpful holiday where we can take time to reflect on what the last year looked like and come up with tangible and reasonable things we can do to make ourselves more healthy andContinue reading “Everything is Meaningless”

Rooted in Christ: I Hope You Dance

Ed and I were blessed to have gotten to go on a little get away trip this weekend. The trip was originally planned for his birthday over a month ago, but the weather had different plans for us that weekend. We were very excited to finally go to this secluded cabin, as we were eagerContinue reading “Rooted in Christ: I Hope You Dance”

Because I Said So…

Because I said so. When I type the words above, the first thing I think of is that my teachers always told me to never start a sentence with because. Then I actually start to think about the words themselves and the times I’ve heard them either spoken to me or when I’ve felt entitledContinue reading “Because I Said So…”

The Waiting Game…

Something so lost in our society today is the ability to wait. We are so used to getting everything so quickly, with Amazon packages on our doorstep within 2 days of ordering, food coming right out of the drive-thru window within a few minutes with hardly any work on our part, and possibly the worstContinue reading “The Waiting Game…”

Emphatic Prayer

I was going through our wedding photos this morning to finally have them printed and I was so moved by one of the photos. It’s not the first time I’d seen it, but it hit me differently as I noticed and was moved by the people in it and what they were doing… As EdContinue reading “Emphatic Prayer”

The Forgiven, Forgive

As a teacher, something I really struggle with is identity. For me, a good day can quickly turn into a bad one with just one email from a parent with a concern. This has been a struggle I’ve had for a while now, and it is just so hard for me to overcome. I findContinue reading “The Forgiven, Forgive”

Look to the One Sleeping

Well, here we are almost a month after I wrote my last blog post. I’ve “committed” in my mind countless times to finally sitting down and writing this specific blog post because it was a lesson that was so impactful to me while Ed and I were going through the closing process on our home.Continue reading “Look to the One Sleeping”

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

This week and today, in particular, I’ve felt a deep heaviness, sadness, and even a little anxious. I spent some time looking at news articles online in an attempt to understand WHAT in the world is going on right now in our country. Insurrection. Impeachment. Martial Law. After reading a few articles, I felt anxiety.Continue reading “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”

2020: Looking Back, Moving Forward!

Today is a very exciting day for me! It is currently 5:51am as I am writing this, and I am SO excited!! In just 16 days, I will complete my very first reading of the ENTIRE Bible! I have called myself a Christian for many years, but never read the entire Bible cover to cover…afterContinue reading “2020: Looking Back, Moving Forward!”

A Friend in Jesus

Today, I am sad. I am sad because of a rekindled friendship that has once again been lost. I am sad that there is a lack of communication, unvoiced hurts. I am sad that I didn’t even get the chance to talk it out, but instead am cut out of your life, as thought IContinue reading “A Friend in Jesus”
