tears…

they run down my face when i hear this song.  i shared one yesterday that spoke to my soul.  this one speaks something that hurts for me to say.. this mountain’s getting higher with every step…i’m trying not to lose everything i’ve kept…tell me how you gonna walk on coals and water too…    Read More

moments…

there are moments when i love my job.  today was one of those moments. i have been seeing a woman for months for therapy.  she is a beautiful woman who needed somebody to help her work through grief and understand herself a bit more deeply than she had.  i am thankful that god allowed me to help her through it.  her patience and faith in the process was inspiring. today was our last session.  we reviewed her progress, her messages and how she is walking forward.  then, she... Read More

elation to frustration…

so, last post, i told y’all about how elated i was at the miles i have been able to run.  though i am still elated at the distance, i am now also frustrated. my pants don’t fit!!! i am averaging about 10 miles a week and my pants are too tight.  WHAT?!  how is this possible?  i am working out the most i have since i was about 25 years old and my pants are too tight. at this point, i am feeling very frustrated.  and i am fighting all of the thoughts that society... Read More

elated…

by now, you are all aware that i am running 🙂 i love it.  i can’t believe i just wrote that.  good lord.  who ever would’ve thunk it?! well, a couple of weeks ago, something happened that i did not think would ever happen.  i ran four miles. i’m sorry.  you must not have read that last sentence because you aren’t jumping up and down in excitement. i ran four miles. there are some of you reading this who are thinking…”so what?  i do... Read More

i can’t believe i am going to admit this…

but, i am. here’s the admission… i am becoming a runner.  it’s true.  i don’t know how it happened. i have NEVER been a runner.  even when i was playing soccer in high school, i was a TERRIBLE runner.  here is what went through my head, “i hate this.  this hurts.  why am i doing this?  why would anyone do this.”  so, i would stop.  my coach would yell at me.  and yell.  and, yell some more.  and, yet, i didn’t move. fast forward... Read More

delicious but…

you have to stop laughing at how they look first. that took me about five minutes… hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.....i don't care who you are...that's funny... you could definitely make these at home if you can find tiny bananas…and it might be a fun project with the kiddos.  but, if you want to just buy them at the store and keep them in the freezer, here is the box.  they really are quite yummy.  🙂  Read More

dear trader joes…

i love you. i usually take my lunch with me to work.  but, last week, i didn’t have time to pack it.  so, i stopped at trader joes to get a sandwich and these began to stare at me while i was in the checkout line.  so i gave in.  and, i AM SO GLAD that i did.  these were amazing.  it was just enough to really satisfy without loads of calories. the vanilla/caramel/dark chocolate combination was perfectly BALANCED. and, if you need a little something to wash it down,... Read More

creative design for a flat screen TV…

i have a flat screen and i LOVE it.  it doesn’t detract from my living room design.  it doesn’t intrude and i appreciate that.  however, i was out to dinner with a friend last week and saw this behind the bar at the restaurant.  it is not the best picture in the world due to the fact that i took it with my mobile phone quickly.  but, i still think you will get the idea. a frame around the flat screen!  it was beautiful.  and, it would be a great way to make... Read More

a beautiful bromance…

you all know how much i love how charles martin writes.  he posted a video a couple of days ago about a songwriter whom he has befriended.  they won’t like the term bromance, i am sure, which is of course, why i had to use it.  🙂 watch the video.  then, think about this.  who do you encourage?  through your passion, who do you help to become more passionate?  do you use your giftings to nurture giftings in others. if not, why?  i asked myself a lot of those questions... Read More
