  • The Unicorns of Life: Jesus isn’t One of Them

    I went back. Today, I went back to a place that makes my heart pound – the gathering place of a lot of people and memories that caused infections in my soul. I asked God to drain those infections. Maybe that’s why I could go back. ...

  • The Single Silver Lining in Sadness

    Spring is here. Life is beginning.  All I can think about is death and the breaking of relationships. When one breaks all you can do is see the other side of it – that lost friend – everywhere. Because she was woven into your life ...

  • Mom Wants it Now, but God is Patient

    What’s causing Mom anxiety this morning? Impatience. My desire for things to be instant. I texted a friend and want a response NOW. I ordered a bracelet and want a confirmation email and a direct message from the consultant. IMMEDIATELY…

  • Do not Despise the Day of Small Beginnings…

    Sometimes talking doesn’t help. Cause the other person is walled off from their own emotions. Talking to them feels like a cheerleader 📣 shouting at a crowd. I grew up with someone close to me who was like that. Only it was worse… Because she always ...

  • Relax

    Calm down. Because, anger and shouting aren’t tools of good parents; they tell the world you’re a lunatic. Out of control and rage-y aren’t a good look, Mom. Dad.

    We have self-control. God is a restraint. Also, Do as I say, not as I do is NOT ...
