Worship While You Wait

I’m in the book of Acts this week and whew! It’s a doozy. But it’s chock full of accounts that took place after Jesus rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, leaving the disciples and followers responsible for then spreading the good news. No pressure. In studying, I have been flipping back and forth… Continue reading Worship While You Wait

Give Thanks

“Hit it, Harlow!” Every day, we pray together on our ride to school. We start out the same way, “Good morning, Jesus!” Depending on which kid is doing the praying that day, I facilitate the prayer or just listen as Grey or Harlow talk to Jesus. If you know Harlow, you know she’s a ham.… Continue reading Give Thanks

Breathe

I hugged the preacher’s neck and commented on how his words and the lyrics sung by the worship team cut into the fears of the current state of the pandemic. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve suited up, taking ragged breaths through all of the gear meant to keep me safe, and walked… Continue reading Breathe

“And now you know…”

“And now you know…the rest of the story.” I remember listening to Paul Harvey on the radio. This is before XM radio or having access to unlimited music on your phones. I loved how he took a piece of information we as listeners had heard before and then gave us a behind the scenes look… Continue reading “And now you know…”

I was blown away by the hospitality shown to us at Andrew UMC this Sunday! We had so much fun being with this congregation and were blessed by the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with so many new faces.

Provisions

I didn’t grow up on a farm. I take that back. The place I grew up was once a working farm, but by the time I came along, it was no longer in use. My brothers and I spent our days imagining castles and hacking out trails through large, shady trees. We picnicked near the… Continue reading Provisions

Bitter.

I’ve been thinking a lot about bitterness. I’ve been through seasons that left me bitter. I know you have, too. Sometimes, the season is fleeting. Other times, it becomes a fog that just won’t seem to lift even after the morning sun rises and dries up everything else. I spend most of my days talking… Continue reading Bitter.

Halfway

I scrubbed at the sticky smudge on my screen, annoyed that gloop was gunking up my phone and occluding my gaze. I tried to tally how many popsicles Grey had consumed so far this summer – and how many drips had dropped on all of my things. He and I have been having weekly dates… Continue reading Halfway

Meet Me at the Altar

He twirled me around one last time and said, “Meet me at the altar.” I skipped to my room to await the time when my daddy would walk me down the aisle to meet Ben at the altar. All these years later, I have a much greater respect for the altar. In my 23-year-old mind,… Continue reading Meet Me at the Altar
