This post has been sitting in my drafts folder for weeks. Some times I have to pray over my words for a long time before deciding to share. Some things have changed since I first wrote this, but the presence of miracles, grief, and confusion hasn’t. God hasn’t and His grace for our humanity hasn’t.Continue reading “Asking God Questions”
He is big enough to handle your fears. I’d go so far as to say that He longs to. His desire if for relationship and that isn’t built by pretending and putting on a brave face. It’s built with the courage to admit your humanity and allow him to make something better of it.
Preparation. We need it for everything; food, building, family outings or road trips, education, etc. All areas of our life are touched by preparation.

There is frost on the trees at my house and the glittering crystals are getting me excited for the most wonderful time of the year…Christmas. I love Christmas. The lights, the smells, the snow, the look of wonder on my children’s faces, the giving of gifts and, most of all, the pause to celebrate JesusContinue reading “Advent with the Jesus Storybook Bible”

On another note, it was an insanely educational and encouraging experience that can facilitate healthy discussion. I made upContinue reading “Apheresis Awareness (Diary of a Donor)”
I did something last week. I replaced a couple pairs of pants. One pair was replaced due to rips, the other was replaced due to size. They were just too tight.
