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

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.

Hold On

I looked down at my 6 lb 9 oz baby and was overcome with joy. The baby that we had prayed over and planned for was finally here. As I gazed into his blue eyes, a thought crossed my mind. “What if you accidentally drop him?” This caused me to hug him tighter. “What if… Continue reading Hold On

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

Hide-and-Seek

I could see little wiggling toes peeking from the bottom of the curtains. Gleeful giggles echoed through the room. “Mom, come and find us!” I called out to my children, asking where they were and pretending not to see tiny hands ruffling the curtains, feigning inability to find them. “Where’s Grey? Where’s Harlow?” “Here’s Harlow!!”… Continue reading Hide-and-Seek

God, You’re So Good

Yall, I've been complaining all week. I know you've been there. Too much to do, too little time. I thought about just throwing my hands up and calling it a day. It's just not in my nature to do so. Our kids turned 2 and 4 this week! We had a sweet little party for them,… Continue reading God, You’re So Good
