On What is Temporary

On What is Temporary

"Whatever's in front of me, help me to sing Hallelujah" I just had my music on and these lyrics stood out. Whatever's in front of me...guess that includes the storm I wrote about last week. But how do I do that when the hard situation still exists? How do I sing...

Honor the Space You Need

Well, friends, I didn't want to write a post today. It's the first time during this challenge that I really thought about skipping. I'm tired and my brain feels foggy. It's not from the weather because it was bright and sunny. I decided over the weekend that I wasn't...

When the Cold is Worth It

When the Cold is Worth It

I came back home frozen. My whole body was stiff and that made me even more unsteady on my feet. I could still move, but I told my dad not to let go. He helped me back into the house. Slowly. Because my legs couldn't go very fast. They needed time to thaw. I went to...

Beyond the Green Shirt

Beyond the Green Shirt

In all my sorting so far, I couldn't give away this one green shirt. I went looking for it tonight before I remembered I wore it the other day. Fall is the time of year when this shirt cycles in and out my closet every week. It's my favorite for this weird...

I laughed when he first walked up. Lunch was almost over and we figured he must not be working today. He was on his way out the door, but he sat down for a minute to catch us up on his family. It was a funny moment because he didn't know we were coming and we didn't...

When You Can’t Fly

The past few months have quickly disappeared. I filled my time with the Do Summer challenge along with the normal, everyday things. They say the older you get, the faster time flies. I don't want to talk about the end of another year yet, okay? Can we stay focused on...

Patience Mixed with Action

Patience Mixed with Action

After a rough start to the week yesterday and just feeling stuck in the middle of a hard situation, I took more time to rest and seek clarity on what to do. I didn't find answers yet, but I took one step. I tried a direction because I still don't know which way is the...

The Storm Inside

The Storm Inside

"What’s the word for the day?" "Storm," I told my mom earlier at lunch time. “And I need to figure out when to write my post before small group tonight." She offered, "My Life is a Storm." "Yep, it feels that way right now." Storms come in different forms and I've...

When Rest is Good

When Rest is Good

When it comes to napping, I'm often one who fails. I don't like sleeping during the day. I'm not saying I've never napped because that's what you do as young kids. And you always sleep more when you're sick and try to make up for a lack of sleep in college by catching...
