I packed my heaviest winter coat. I refolded my fleece-lined leggings and threw in another set of thermals. I checked the weather again on my phone, fingers crossed the storm would have dissipated. Alas, another wave of ice and snow would be pouring out soon. Resigned, we made the decision to cancel our trip. All… Continue reading Redirection

I stood outside my car with the rain continuing to pour all around me. My feet were in wet socks from wading through a puddle this morning. My hair was slicked back into a stiff bun after getting caught in the storm while assisting one of my patients into her vehicle. I silently willed the… Continue reading Junctures in Jericho
Can y’all believe we are still dealing with this pandemic? When it started unfolding, I think we were all disillusioned in thinking this too shall pass...in a timely manner. Yet we are still waiting. For resolution. For normalcy. For predictability. But what I’m still hearing is “I’m _____.” Tired. Overwhelmed. Discouraged. Hurting. Exhausted. Confused. We… Continue reading Still
I wanted to scream. Actually, I did, calling for help. I had just opened the door and found my patient coding. Our team jumped into action performing life-saving measures. I cradled my patient's head and brushed her hair out of her eyes. Orders were being shouted. EMS was being called. I thought of her husband. How… Continue reading Turn Around
Grey received the sweetest book for Christmas called If I Was the Sunshine by Julie Fogliano and illustrated by Loren Long. Y'all, it is just captivating. The pictures are breathtaking and the simple rhymes leave us drawing deeper conclusions. I've been studying the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians this week. In light of all… Continue reading Fruit of the Spirit
It’s hard to believe that this year is coming to a close. When I started writing this blog this summer, I thought I’d “just see how it goes”. It was something God very clearly told me to do, so I figured, whether people read it or not, I am doing what He called me to… Continue reading Abide
One of my favorite things about Christmas is receiving Christmas cards from friends and coworkers. Especially this year, since I haven’t physically seen a lot of the smiling faces hanging on my wall in quite some time. Moms, you did a great job getting everyone looking their best! I know the dads were there, too,… Continue reading Mary, did you know?
Y’all! I have a very important question for you. How in the world do you use your debit or credit card to pay for items? With all of the hustle and bustle of purchasing gifts, I have found myself in this predicament over and over again. One time it works if I slide the card.… Continue reading Swipe Here
We’ve been decking the halls and preparing for the Christmas season. Part of that process has been getting rid of some of the stuff we have accumulated over the course of this year to make room for the tree, gifts, and garland. Of course, it’s also prime time to purge some of the toys the… Continue reading Hidden. Holly. Holy.
