Simple thoughts from today, and a brief personal example of how we can destroy our own progress. Love you all.
Is it weird to have a panic attack when you get time to yourself and you aren’t sure you can actually handle it? Not, like, really.
Imagine the respect our Father shows us: we are the masterpiece of His creation, expressions of Himself, endowed with every possible capacity. And yet, we are treated with such respect that we are allowed to look all of His beautiful character in the eye and still choose unbelief. We have the right to walk away … Continue reading “365 Day 155: August 28, 2020”
In the middle of my day, it can be hard to lay aside the practical to rediscover the deep wells that are so easy to find in my quiet moments alone with the Lord. Yet, here I try, purposefully pushing deep into the concepts of the Lord smack middle of a Thursday afternoon.
I can be productive and present at the same time. I mean, currently it’s a bit of a brain bleed but I’m confident that somewhere in Jesus there is capacity for true community in the midst of all the necessary. And I may suck at it for long time, I’m going to practice on purpose, … Continue reading “365 Day 153: August 26, 2020”
After two of the most fulfilling days in recent history, I’m tanked! But the Lord is doing some beautiful work, and I can’t help talking about it! Blessings to you all tonight!
Today was an incredibly rewarding day. I’m entirely drained, but still so full! There’s such an urgency building up in my heart, an irrepressible optimism of anticipation.
It’s like the Lord took my soul and shuffled the deck. Nothing is where it used to be, and yet, it’s a divine riot of opportunity. There’s a lot of repentance and growing to do now, but it’s all beautiful. I have never been more excited for the future, and the ability to say that … Continue reading “365 Day 150: August 23, 2020”
This one is a weepy mess of a thing, and I’m not even sorry.
There is a lot of wisdom and knowledge and best practices in the world. But how do you feel when you know there’s something you should do, be, or feel—but you just aren’t there, for whatever reason? It’s a useless mind-game of weakness and anxiety. Do you know who gets to tell you when something … Continue reading “365 Day 148: August 21, 2020”
“through fear of death became subject to slavery all their lives.” Ooph. Is that a gut-punch for anyone else?
A sore throat (don’t worry, no fever or anything else, I promise!) has been making 12-hour rounds around our house and this afternoon, it hit me. I’m betting I’ll be fine by morning, but right now, words are out of the question. But in other news, I went through Dax’s full daily curriculum today and … Continue reading “365 Day 146: August 19, 2020”
Dax taught me what it means to fix your eyes. And honestly, it’s far more unnerving than I ever realized. When your eyes are fixed, do you even blink?
When I said I’d open my heart on a video every day, I set forth 3 simple criteria: open, honest, and nothing hidden. At the time, I had no concept of how difficult that would be, in terms of setting aside the simple to genuinely open my heart, to be honest about what was in … Continue reading “365 Day 144: August 17, 2020”
As mama, I feel constantly interrupted.
Take Him at His word—like, no really. It’s the most important thing we have, that collection of quiet, personal things He says to us.
Please forgive this departure, in which I share some homeschool organization ideas I’ve developed for this year. I’m pretty excited about them and I’ve put a lot of time into them, so I just wanted to take a day to share.
I didn’t know it was in there, but I’m glad He did.
*Favorite* Miracles and suffering.
Today I did something I was afraid to do. And I’m really glad.
I’m learning to stop worrying about what other people think.
On questions and grace that has room for the questions.
That which is sacred is vital to protect.
Another video on another Lowes trip. Also, I love people of excellence. In other news, another room is complete and clean!
Here you go!
Just because you have things to say doesn’t mean you say them…
On trafficking, the victimizers, and why I keep catching myself praying for them.
Freedom, in its most essential form, will always require courage, responsibility, and investment.
It can be tempting to interfere. But often, though not always, with-ness is more valuable than input.
