Why I Hate "CARS"

Posted on

I don’t really.  If I did, I don’t think anything I ever said again from this point on would be credible, so I jest.  But, it’s okay for me, as a mom, to be mad at Lightning McQueen, Guido, Luigi, and all the Ferrari’s in the whole world. Do NOT let his looks deceive you…this […]

Just Write

Posted on

It’s ironic, and not, that the prompt for Lisa Jo Baker’s “Five Minute Friday” is “write.” Just write, but be intentional about it… GO: Because today at lunch with a writer friend, who is writing a book with her husband, I asked, “How do you actually write a book on marriage?  Do you guys, like, […]

All Up in Your Crazy

Posted on

“I will combat my stress and heated difficult parenting moments with trips to the toilet. I read a really darling short story about a woman who locked herself in her master bathroom happily for the weekend.  It was her own special stay-cation, complete with Orangina and crackers. I may have to try that.  Don’t tell […]

Re-entry

Posted on

Spain was mucho awesome.  (I will share more later…) I learned many things there and am inspired upon returning home to make some changes, finish some projects, write about some stuff, throw stuff away, and at the same time, I’m overwhelmed at the thought of any of it. There’s this major crash which happens after […]

It’s Important for you to Know

Posted on

It’s important for you to know I don’t always hate myself. It’s important because it is the truth. And “hate” is a big word, one which isn’t truly accurate for how I feel day in and day out.  But for those of you who struggle with the person in the mirror on occasion, you know […]

Yesterday I woke up sure I was dying of colon cancer. I actually had all the signs according to the NIH.   The last month has proved to be a loose operation around here…and by “around here” specifically I mean me, my toilet, and I.  Almost a month ago I decided to do a Daniel […]

The Written Word

Posted on

Every. Single. Day. All. Over. The. World. Things. Happen. That. Are. Horrible. And I don’t understand.  But instead of being gripped with fear, overcome with worry, or lashing out in anger, I go to The One who sees the bigger picture and I sit.  I sit before The One Who was and is and is […]

Travel with Intention

Posted on

My Mom and Dad made it possible for me to join Jason for a few days down in Santa Fe, NM, while he worked earlier this week, by watching our precious offspring.  Jason and I are good about getting out for date nights thanks to generous family members and a fantastic babysitter, but overnights are […]

The Tortoise and the Hare

Posted on

When I think of turtles, images from Eric Carle’s books come to mind since I have a toddler and these are on my shelves and in my hands most afternoons before nap time. If I said the word “turtle” to my husband, I bet you a zillion dollars visions of pecans covered in caramel covered […]

INTENTION

Was it Venezuela?  Maybe Siberia?  It could have been St. Petersburg, Russia. I don’t remember now. All I know is a million years ago when I was in my young 20’s I met a teenager named Alece Ronzino…we met over a mutual love for the mission field.  I think she was a carnivalite because for […]
