Choosing Just to Be

Today I was all determined to accomplish a host of things. And I did. I spent way more time that I had planned on working on the blog page, worked out, and even enjoyed a walk to the school to pick up Princess Anna from school.Everything went as planned, really, until bedtime.When my niece came up with this fantastic idea for a tea party that we can't attend, which led Princess Anna into a meltdown, because they my sister and niece are leaving on Wednesday and we won't see them again for a year.And somewhere along the way, I had…

When Trusting Others Hurts

Last week was a tough week. Well if you include yesterday in there too. Not only was I tired and depressed, but we're in the process of experiencing change and change isn't easy. In the last few weeks, I've been feeling like I burned a bridge with one of my best friends and have been trying to figure out how to repair it (I haven't come up with anything yet). Then last week, I found out that another of my best friends (we've known each other for 16 years) is moving out of the area. Do not get me wrong,…

3 Things I Know About Prayer

Prayer is such a huge topic, so widely studied, so deep and immense that I don't think I could ever fully explain prayer.  But here are 3 things I do know about prayer: Prayer is your line of communication with God.  Without prayer, there is no communication.Prayer is like your communication in any other relationship. can't text God.  You can't call Him on the phone.  You can't send Him a Facebook message, and you can't write Him a letter.  Which makes Him seem really far away at first, but what's really awesome about this is that you don't have…

40 Days of Encouragement

Okay, so I know I'm a bit behind on the times when to comes to posting about what I'm giving up for Lent.  In fact, I was a bit behind in figuring out what I wanted to give up for Lent to begin with. I've only begun celebrating Lent within the last 10 years.  I didn't even really understand its significance until I joined the United Methodist church.  And I don't think the giving up part is anything you HAVE to do to be a Christian--I just do it, because it helps me draw closer to Christ, helps me understand what…

For the Weary

I don't know about you, but I often forget how tired I am. Case in point: yesterday, I fell asleep on the couch while the kids were playing on the Wii.  All I remember: Princess Anna covering me with a blanket, bringing down her pillow and my old stuffed rabbit, removing my glasses, and telling me to let her know if I needed anything.  (My heart explodes with love for that girl.  But I digress...) And today, it hit me while I was in the shower.  I was so busy with the laundry-breakfast-devotions-get-the-kids-ready-for-school-pack-my-stuff-for-the-gym-get-ready-for-work-go-to-work-drop-off-the-kids-because-there-was-a-delay-still-make-it-to-the-gym-and-back-to-the-school-in-time-to-pick-up-princess-anna-and-get-to-the-tax-man's-in-time-and-oh-yes-eat-lunch-and-feed-the-kid-and-pets-in-there-somewhere busy-ness that it didn't hit me until…
