My Agenda for Strength

I’ve been trying to get strong. Physically. Mentally. Emotionally. Spiritually. My arms are still the same ones that wiggle when I wave. I’m still forgetting stuff. I’m still a bit emotional about things that I could probably let slide. And I’m still working on letting God handle things without so much input from me. My… Continue reading My Agenda for Strength

Living Strong

I’ve been thinking about strength lately, mostly because I really need some. I’ve been praying about it a lot too. And I realized that I’ve been living under the assumption that at some point God will just zap me with strength so I can get busy doing all the things I think I need to… Continue reading Living Strong

Let Him Have It!

Recently someone asked me what God is doing in my life.  What big things has God done? And I had to think… Sometimes it feels like I’m in a perpetual state of weary and I can’t see beyond the next moment…and other times I’m so desperate for a change that I look ahead with either… Continue reading Let Him Have It!

Somebody Save Me Please

What if this life is about more than surviving?  Have you ever heard that saying about thriving instead of just surviving?  I don’t know what I think about that quote right now.

I’m sitting at the pool feeling guilty because I’m not in the pool playing with my daughters, but we can only stay a few minutes before I have to leave to take my son to a school function.  I have spent the majority of my summer in the car and I’m sooooo tired of driving. … Continue reading Spilling Guilt

Are You Feeling Toddlerish? I Have Some Fruit That Can Help.

It’s official.  I’m 5 years old. I’m fussy.  I’d like to stomp my feet.  I could plop down on my bum and cry. And I definitely don’t feel like sharing. I feel like I’ve shared quite enough already. I’ve long said…well, 5 years long…that it’s important not to make our children feel badly about spending… Continue reading Are You Feeling Toddlerish? I Have Some Fruit That Can Help.

Are You Giving UP?

  I was talking with a friend lately about how it feels like for the past 5+ years God has asked me to give up A LOT! Sometimes it feels like all I’m doing is giving up people, things, hopes, and dreams… Sometimes it has felt unbearable and sometimes it has been relatively easy. Sometimes… Continue reading Are You Giving UP?

Ducks in a Row? Nope…not even in the same pond.

You know that old saying about getting your ducks in a row? My ducks aren’t in a row…in fact, I’m sure my ducks aren’t even in the same pond. I really want them to be…at least in the same pond. Golly, I don’t care about lines. I was never particularly fond of staying in the… Continue reading Ducks in a Row? Nope…not even in the same pond.
