100 days of peace update… finally. Okay, I know this is a bit (or a lot) overdue as I’m now on day 23 of this personal exploration into what peace means and how to find the quiet of my heart I, and I think many people, yearn for. You can read my original post here. The delay… Continue reading Peace = Choice
A 100-day journey to peace and purpose.
I’m sick of it. I don’t want to oscillate between emotional zombie to harried crazy-lady anymore.
I want to be free.
In the sense that I love Jesus and I have embraced the Heavenly Father’s gift of salvation, I am free from my sin. But am I living it? Do I really know what His peace is or where to find it? No. I yearn for it… I’m looking for radical. I’m looking for a bond, and a closeness with God far beyond my imaginings. I’m looking for a peace that truly transcends all human understanding. And I’m looking for His purpose for my life beyond a shadow of any doubt.

Finding the Long-term Perspective in the Chaotic Now Today I’m going to veer slightly from writing about… well, writing. However, the very thoughts in this post come out of the busyness of balancing a family, job, and a time-consuming aspiration to be a writer,as well as an emotional couple of weeks waiting for a beloved… Continue reading Ode to the Joy of Mommyhood
It’s okay to be Okay. I guess what I mean by giving yourself permission to be okay, is that we don’t have to be perfect. It’s okay to NOT be perfect. Salvador Dali said, “Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.” Does that thought make you cringe or make you sigh in relief?… Continue reading Giving Yourself Permission to Be Okay
A pinched weary voice, drones, “Number 7, 000, 899. Now serving 7,000, 899, please.” Everybody in the cramped, stale, waiting room, frantically checks their numbered paper slip. Many groans fill the air, some throw their hands in the air in defeat while bolting for the exit, while one lucky soul, exclaims, “Yes! That’s me! Finally!”… Continue reading Surviving The Waiting Room for Dreams
