On long hair, little decisions, and letting Jesus tweak anything He wants.
He just doesn’t see things the way we often do. He can do a lot with one simple yes.
How lucky we are to be alive right now. No, really.
Big things are often built of that which seems mundane.
Well, it finally happened. This is the one with no video. I just did not get it done today. Grace, grace, and new mercies tomorrow. Love to you all.
Side note: I spent 5+ hours working on this and I think I have more to do now than I did when I started. This, this right here, this riotous hot mess of disorder and grime, is why I procrastinated for a full year…
On kids, cussing, and where the religious line falls.
I think I’m getting a glimpse of how the Father feels when I believe who He tells me I am.
When we can’t bravely offer our yes and our no, it ultimately results in our community becoming more unstable.
The whole versus the one: meditations on the tension of community.
And suddenly I was uniqued qualified to help–to listen and truly help—because I had held firmly to the voice of the Lord when it would have been easier to let it go.
Shew! Only moments to spare! 😅 Just a few gushy thoughts about Jesus, precious King of the Middle.
If I were to give advice to single folks seeking their forever partner, this would be my #1 recommendation: find someone with a truly GOOD heart.
Y’all, this is a crisis. This video is one of the strongest I’ve done in a while, and somehow it’s NOT on my page! This is so my heart, so I’m definitely going to fix that error!
If people rarely get to see your heart, they will not care what you think. It’s possible the development of your unique voice is the number one factor to developing the community and influence you were created to walk in.
Skunks, a happy garden, and a little boy who loves me to life.
I paused, surprised. Waiiit a minute, Lord, I said. Why are You holding back with me?
Fixed tomorrow but here’s the rough link for now. Mostly, just me saying hi and take the night off. Truly, not much to see here today. But love you all the same.
In case you’re concerned that I have a black eye, never fear. That’s just what happens when your Sunday afternoon nap smears up your mascara. Eh well. But side note: this video is pretty important, IMO.
A long time to suddenly.
Comfort: Grace. And there’s no end to it.
A reprieve: an evening spent with Nick and the boys at City Island, Harrisburg, for a fabulous round of mini golf. So tonight’s video is short and uneventful, and that’s just fine with me.
The story of our becoming is a powerful substance. Anytime we walk through awkward to take hold of growth, it’s a transformative, potent testimony that is worth unveiling. Better still, I’m convinced it is worth walking through in transparency.
If your process isn’t some degree of ugly or messy, I’m not sure you’re allowing the process of becoming to go deeply enough.
Posting strictly to follow through on the vision. Visions are never more important than when you don’t feel like upholding them anymore.
Aly is off to camp, and I’m undergoing the traditional post-drop-off Mama reflection.
*Video Posted!* This video is an experiment. I’m actually not sure I have the full heart of God on this yet. But there is a seed here that I’m chasing, and I thought that possibly, you folks might have helpful input.
I was terrified to ask Him to examine my heart. But when I came to know Him as Friend and Comforter, my fear melted away.
*Video Posted!* (earlier note: I am camping with my family this weekend and my internet is more spotty than I anticipated. I’ll be recording tonight’s video and will post in the morning while I’m at the office. Stay tuned! *much love! Diane)
A fool is a fool. That isn’t judgement. Foolishness is revealed quite obviously, by how we treat wisdom in our lives.
