Oh, hello there.

Hello there all. It has been a while, or at least it feels that way. How are you? How have you been? The world is opening back up – how is that for you? Are you excited or weary? Maybe a bit of both? I am a bit of both, myself. How are you mentally?…

Too Much

Have you ever felt too much? Thought too much? Like, everything is just too much? I’ve been feeling that way lately. Super, and I mean SUPER emotional. Lately I’ve felt like I want to move away and live on an island and bum off the land at this point… I can’t do that because soon…

Reasons to Tithe and I’m Not a Pastor.

Originally posted on ArmstrongTimes:
I emphasize that I’m not a pastor because people have their biases when it comes to pastors talking about money. I grew up in the church. I’ve heard all the scriptures pastors used to get people to tithe—you know the ones from the Old Testament like Malachi 3:8. At the end…

Keep that Same Energy.

One of my wife’s favorite phrases is “keep that same energy.” It comes from today’s Bible app verse coming from Luke 6:38 NLT. “Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full – pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into…

Leaving Fears Behind

Well, it has been a while. How is 2021 going for everyone? How are you faring through COVID??? I’ve been on vacation, yet it seems like so much has happened! We moved, we traveled, we finished moving, and my husband and I have a new job and finishing school to look forward to… that is…

Remaining Grateful

Hello friends! How long has it been? Too long as usual.  I pray everyone had a blessed and beautiful Thanksgiving! I did. I fell deeply in love. I ate, and then ate some more. I slept late. I did no schoolwork what-so-ever (this part, I will regret… maybe). My first nephew was born the day…

Not Okay.

The last time I wrote on my blog was June 24th… it is now Sept. 13th. To say I am disappointed in myself is an understatement. What happened exactly? What kept me away for so long? I guess distractions… and life. Maybe the television too. Eh… So what brings me back? Well, the usual… expressing…

Distractions.

The enemy has a way of trying to keep me from productively living out here! The level of “distractions” I’ve encountered these past few weeks (past few WEEKS, not days, WEEKS!) is ridiculous. I’ve been distracted from things that matter to me – from my writing, school work, household tasks I want to accomplish, keeping…

I’ll love the hell out of you… really.

I had a thought a little over a week ago… My thought: You have to love the hell out of people sometimes. It started with my pastor saying those very words. One day he told us that some people are just hellions, or just full of hell-ish foolery, and all you CAN do… is love…
