Digging

It was therapy day, I think my therapist’s goal in life is to get me to cry. We joke about it, but it is not all bad. Crying is very cleansing and it helps me know I am not dead inside. I feel things deeply, so deeply that it can be overwhelming. I ask a lot […]

A mother’s love?

Today is my oldest daughter’s 22nd birthday. I’m filled with joy, I’m filled with awe, I’m filled with wonder, I’m filled with love and more than that, I’m filled with a knowledge of the miraculous. But, with those wonderful feelings… a sadness persists. A sadness that creeps into my heart and turns to anger. Turns […]

She Will Be Missed

Last week I lost a friend. I lost her to death. It is a sadness that is hard to explain as I know  she was such a strong believer in Jesus, and had been a widow for years. I know she was getting tired. Tired of trudging through each day wondering why she was still […]

Book Review “53 Letters for my Lover”

This was a tough read. filled with angst from page one almost to the end. It was one of those books that you can only take in small bites, but want to keep reading to see how it will all come out. I found tears rolling from my eyes over and over. I was having […]

I have had my blog for two years. I started this journey because I had to do something to address the overwhelming need inside me to speak to the world. As I have walked the path to use my voice, I have somehow quieted. I always thought I would find more and more to say. […]

Book Review: “After I Do”

“After I Do”, by Taylor Jenkins Reid I loved this book so much I read it in about a day and a half. It was one of those reads that felt like the characters were people you knew, people you would like, and they sucked me in right away. I was happy with them, I was sad […]

A Christmas Gift to Remember

The Christmas season has finally wound down and I feel like I can finally relax a bit. When you are married to a pastor and work in the church office, Christmas is actually the busiest time of the year. Easter is also a very busy time, however it does not come with as many expectations […]

Tis’ the Season

Tis the season to be… Some would say jolly, some might say caring or kind or giving. I say it is the season of waiting, of expectation, of hope. That is what Advent is all about. It is the time before Christmas when we remember that a baby is coming. A very special baby. One that […]
