One Hit Wonder? No thanks.

A few weeks ago, I heard my pastor ask a question. I’ve wanted to write about it ever since as it’s something I like to read, talk, and journal about. The question was:   Do you want to be a “One Hit Wonder” or a person of longevity and endurance in your walk with Jesus? One Hit Wonder A One… Read more →

Half Way and Challenged

Monday is June first. Only 5 short months ago did we shout “Happy New Year!” with plans to live 2015 well. Now, we’re almost half way into this year that still feels new to me.   Do you like how you lived your first half? How do you want to end the second?   In the quiet, secret place of just me and the… Read more →

Food.

If you could see my library of un-finished blog posts you’d see about eleven “drafts.”  I start a thought and can’t seem to finish any of them.  Is that what they call “writer’s block”? In a sincere effort to help me, my husband has said the past few weeks as he’s leaving for work, “So you going to write today?”  Ha.  He’s… Read more →

Family Day Cover

The husband has the day off (it’s Family Day here in Canada…cool holiday, huh?) so we decided to record a bit. A lovely lady sent me this song last week and said it reminded her of Ry and I.  I think it’s so sweet.  Thank you, JJ Heller for writing such a adorable song! 🙂 Enjoy! Read more →

The Beauty of Being Known

I love new beginnings. I think my heart jumped a little when I woke up and knew it was January first. A brand new month in a brand new year. Since I am an avid journaler,  I often write down what I’m thinking for the coming year and now that I have a husband to do life with, there have… Read more →

On feeling far from God

Have you ever felt far from God? I certainly have. In fact, I kinda do right now. Isn’t it sort of freeing to admit? Some would have a cliche response like: “Well…if you feel far away from God, He’s not the one that moved, you are.” Or maybe ask that question…”What have you done to feel far away?” (Yeah, like any of that… Read more →

Be kind to yourself

I will spare my lovely readers from any details but I had a turn for the worse this past week and was really.really.really. not feeling well.  The kind of not feeling well where you can’t even read (and folks, I always have a book going) to pass the time because you can’t concentrate. You don’t expect 8 months into marriage that your husband would be… Read more →

My Crutch

Yesterday marked three weeks since I last posted. The day of my last post on September 10th, I had an idea for a possible post the next week.  When I have ideas of things to write, I find any scrap piece of paper I can get my hands on and scribble it down.  I used to not jot things down, thinking… Read more →

“Let peace be the umpire”

If you’re anything like me, decisions and choices and needing to figure out what the heck am I going to do with my life has caused A LOT OF STRESS.  I say that in the past tense because I think…a little bit more…something is starting to sink in.  Maybe it’s moving away or experiencing lots of new things recently or getting married… Read more →
