Rainy Autumn Mondays Unto the Lord

We were thankful for the rain Monday morning. The dry ground was thirsty! I was glad the girls got their pumpkins carved the evening before, just in time. We don’t celebrate Halloween as its roots are not even close to God-honoring, and in my conviction, I cannot celebrate it, but I did wait for theContinue reading “Rainy Autumn Mondays Unto the Lord”

When a blogger has more tools than they know what to do with.

Request accepted. I was in.  They let me into the group. Now I would have even more advice for the vocation I was in! But I scrolled through and became overwhelmed with the amount of information before my eyes. Immediately, discouragement tried to set in as I felt ill-equipped to find the “starting line.” SometimesContinue reading “When a blogger has more tools than they know what to do with.”

When my eyes try to lock in on too much at once they become strained, my mind overwhelmed. Even as I write this, I have another tab pulledContinue reading “What do focus, pace, rest and progress all have in common?”

A Tale of Transforming Taste Buds

My four year old was feeling better, we got our dog back from the vet, school work was through and the evening knocked at my door. Feeling like a young child inside because free time around here doesn’t happen as much I’d like, I went to my room to fish through the Netflix shows hopingContinue reading “A Tale of Transforming Taste Buds”

People & Prose

Finding My Voice Remaining Authentic -Taking Risks- (When my computer isn’t glitching that is hence the late post that keeps trying to go bye-bye.) Last Monday I wrote about writing from the heart and the sort of fog that encumbered the atmosphere due to an unexpected event occurring. That week was also filled with anotherContinue reading “People & Prose”
