Memories For A New Year

Memories For A New Year

I don’t know if it’s just me, but coming home for Christmas tends to bring out my introspective side. The minute I walk through the door of my childhood home, the memories flood over me, wrapping me in warm blankets of familiarity and coaxing a settled smile to my lips. Home. A word. A place. […]

What We Really Need

What We Really Need

…For Your heavenly father knows that you need all these things. Matthew 6:32b Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up with life and forget that the Lord knows what we need. It’s not even so much that He knows we need food and clothing, but the deeper heart of our Father to provide. He knows […]

What Do You Say When They Say No?

What Do You Say When They Say No?

Rejection. No one likes it. No one seeks it out. And yet it’s a fact of life. The answer isn’t always going to be yes, so the important thing is to figure out how you will deal with that two-letter disappointment. No. Often, we get caught up in the anticipation of answers that could determine […]

Something To Land On

Warning: Single ladies post. But don’t worry – if you’re not a single lady I promise that you will get something out of this too! Some of you readers may know that I’ve moved to a new city – well, “a whole new world” really, to borrow Aladdin’s words. I’m now living in the lovely […]

What’s Your Story?

What’s Your Story?

You may not realize it when you first meet someone, but who they are–I mean, who they really are–isn’t usually on the surface. I’m not saying that what you see is a facade or that everyone is fake, but we are more than who we appear to be. I can’t help but think of the […]

Waiting on Something Better

Waiting on Something Better

I’ve been thinking about prayer a lot lately. I’m currently reading A Praying Life by Paul E. Miller and it’s completely changing my perspective on how to pray. As I’ve been thinking on this and how I ask things of the Lord, He has brought some interesting things to my attention–especially the idea of waiting. […]

Staying Satisfied

Staying Satisfied

I don’t know about you, but I find more often than not, that trying to hold onto satisfaction is like trying to grab a fist full of sand. Just when you think you’ve got a good hold, somethings shifts and it all slips right through your fingers.   No matter who you are, it’s guaranteed […]
