Lord, Keep Us Sane

I’m barely hanging on today. It sucks to admit that. I can always tell when I’ve reached my limit when it comes to stress. The first sign is my vocab. I start to cuss. If you don’t ever feel stressed AND you never swear, please just stop reading this now.

The Art of Dependency

Dependency. I’ve always struggled in that area. It’s the whole idea of not NEEDing help because I can do it myself. As a child, I could tie my shoes, pick out my own clothes (didn’t care if they didn’t match). I could color and cut and paste my own projects. I could even brush my own hair (although I rarely ever did). I didn’t want or need anyone else’s help. Some of it was because of my stubbornness. Mostly, I just wanted to be able to do all the things.

All That Really Matters

As a little girl, I wanted to become an astronaut. I was fascinated with space, but I learned pretty quickly it would be  unlikely for me to become one. Besides, space camp was too ekspensiv. I decided my new answer to the growing up question would be “an artist.”

Learning to Listen

So far this month I’ve learned that I really can do 6 AM too. I was hoping by now I could say this girl is on fire, but it’s not so much the truth. Okay, so let’s do a recap. These are the days I’ve been successful in my little #icando6amtoo challenge: March 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 12th, 13th, 14th and 16th.

When You Feel Defeated

Yesterday I went to my own search box on my site and typed in “why I write.” I remember blogging about it awhile back. Up popped Why I Blog. It was dated November 1, 2015. I wanted to remind myself of the why. You can read it HERE.  I gave three reasons, but I’m adding a fourth one today.

God Will Never Let You Down

Last month, I went to New Life Center on a Sunday morning and listened to a message about faithfulness given by my son-in-law. He asked, “Are you looking for a King or for comfort?” Before the message, we sang a song called King of My Heart. The lyrics talk about God being good. I truly believe that he is good but then when it came to the next line, it gave my faith a good shake.

Pushin’ It Real Good

Well Hello. It’s been awhile. The last five months have been filled with excitement and frustration and clarity and confusion and celebration and ima-gonna-just-hafta-go-through-the-motions-what-am-i-even-doin-so-help-me-Jesus-loves-me-this-i-know. I could definitely use some BALANCE in my life, but unfortunately it’s just not in my DNA.

My Need for Prayer

Well, I just took three whole days off. I thought ah, that’s okay, what’s one day? Then two days passed and I thought, Well maybe I’ll just take the weekends off. Then, yesterday came and went. Suddenly it’s October 10th. I think my last post on truth took a lot out of me.

When the Truth is Messy

In May, I had a decision to make. I could tell the truth or continue to hide it. I finally did the right thing and chose to be honest. Mostly because it’s not the kind of person I want to be. Before I get into THAT, Let me back up a bit. About 4+ years ago, I started seeing a mental health professional. I don’t love admitting that but it’s the truth and sometimes the truth is messy.
