Faking Fruit

My blog has been quiet for a few weeks, but I have been writing. Flipping back through the pages of my notebook, I had trouble finding where I left off with my last blog. I have been busy, which is something I try to avoid. I'm exhausted and frustrated with the limitations of time for... Continue Reading →

An Adulterous Heart

I have to confess that I am in the middle of reading The Hunger Games books. It has been a while since I have read any fiction, and I am beginning to think that it isn’t good for me. The problem is that even a little bit of romance can stir up longings within me.... Continue Reading →

If having this blog has taught me anything, it is that no one is hanging on my every word. So, why am I so quick to speak? Recently, there was a situation in which my opinion was entirely irrelevant.

Choosing To Be Chosen

This week I have been feeling overwhelmed, but not in a bad way. I have been feeling joyful and humbled because of God’s goodness to me. Last weekend, as I charged through some items that had been lingering on my to-do list, I was writing letters to the girls that I sponsor through Compassion International.... Continue Reading →

Putting My Time Where My Mouth Is

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I don’t think that is theologically sound, but I do understand the truth that we as humans tend not to follow through on our intentions. I know that I am walking the path to eternal life in heaven, yet I find myself frustrated with... Continue Reading →
