Why I Almost Lost it in Public

Why I Almost Lost it in Public

It definitely wasn't the first time, but it still made me mad. Maybe mad is too strong of a word, but I was frustrated and there was a hint of anger under the frustration. My morning started extra early as I was running in a short race with a friend. She was pushing...

A Random Post on Bacon

A Random Post on Bacon

I woke up to the scent of bacon. Then I found out the word for Five Minute Friday was bacon. The connection to bacon on this day continued when I ran an errand later in the morning. I saw a bumper sticker -- Fueled by Bacon. I've always picked bacon over sausage. I...

Lost in a Sea of Words

Can you believe another month is ending soon? And I've been blogging every single day? I didn't have it in me this time last year. I quit before I started. So glad I finally decided to jump all in and get lost in a sea of words. When I'm writing, I do get lost in a...

When Joy Follows

When Joy Follows

We aren't left in the middle of confusion for long. If we're seeking a way through a storm and taking each little action step we know is ours to take, then the mess becomes less messy. Maybe this happens as we shift the full burden from our shoulders to God's...from...

The Value of Connection

The Value of Connection

I have a love/hate relationship with social media. I'm pretty sure the majority of people on Facebook would say the same things at different times. It can be...overwhelming. Too much to keep up with. Too many ads for businesses and companies I've never heard of....
