You make all things new….even me.

There was a time, not oh-so long ago that I didn’t know what gossip really was. I was taught that gossip meant talking about something that wasn’t true. Just talking about people was a part of my family of origin’s every interaction. That wasn’t gossip, that’s just what you do. This is what we were…

Be Still.

There has been so much warring in my mind these days. That I’m forced to relive the worst days amongst lies and more hideous lies is the ultimate blow. But I pray for peace and the Lord provides. Moments at a time, as I trust Him. He who knows the truth far more than even…

Get. A. Life.

I probably should make a rule about blogging when I’m this frustrated at humans. But tonight I just don’t care, darn it. I am in a twilight zone today: My Facebook is alite with posts that say gays shouldn’t be allowed a place at a table in restaurants of Christians…that obese women are all so…

“I will never”

Have you ever said “Well, I will never__________”? Surely you have. Most of us have. I’ll tell you what, I’m starting to think I will never begin another sentence with “I will never….” because the season of our lives we are entering could be categorized exactly this way: That time God shook all my nevers…

Bullies Suck, Part 2

In regards to my own bullying story, God really erased this time in my life from my emotional radar. I no longer think this way, I no longer am a mad girl, I do not inadvertently test myself against teenage-me and have not for a very, very long time.  I do not carry sadness or…

Bullies Suck

I had a bully. For almost two years. We didn’t call it that, then, in high school. Or I didn’t. “Bullies” were the big scary kid on the playground that pushed kids down- right? Maybe. But there can be more to it than that. Especially with girls. I tell you what, bullies sucks. She was…

afraid.

I’ve been reading the Divergent series (as you know if you keep up with this blog a little bit) and in it there is a deep focus on fear. Not fear itself but what specifically these characters fear…and attempting to overcome those fears. For some characters they remember child abuse they suffered, or kidnapping. One fears…

you want to do what?

I want to be a homeschooler. There I said it. I actually typed it big and bold for the world to see. I want to homeschool my children. This is so bad. I am so weird. I am such an awful parent. My family is going to completely freak out. My sister will be furious….

Revolutionary.

Okay, okay, so I won’t try to tell you you should watch The Walking Dead. I really won’t. But I have been watching it. Yeah, it’s really gross. And the concept is maybe silly. And it isn’t my ‘style’ at all. And no, I don’t believe in zombies. You do know the plot, yeah? A…
