Unwrapped Gifts

It’s been a whirlwind of a year and though I received so many presents during my last birthday I wasn’t able to enjoy them all.  It wasn’t until I found a few in a drawer that I even knew some had been forgotten.  I texted a friend asking if she was the one who had… Continue reading Unwrapped Gifts

Summer Reflection:2017

There have been a lot of changes for me this year.  I posted a collage of pictures from the summer with the title: “What a great summer!” My friend/old roommate commented, “Was it really a great summer?!” 😳 She reminded me that we moved out of our old home this summer and we submitted to… Continue reading Summer Reflection:2017

Being Made

I was listening to a podcast this afternoon that really resonated with me. It talked about young women always having a crush and always wanting to be in a relationship. Story of my life. It seems there was always a man either in my life or in my heart. I remember in my mid 20s… Continue reading Being Made

Live As You Are Called

I have been listening to a woman’s testimony online who has been single 57 years and is getting married today. You may know of this woman. Her name is Nancy De Moss. I haven’t really followed her ministry “Revive Our Hearts” too much in the past but given she has lived a full single life… Continue reading Live As You Are Called

2 Versions of Every Story

So I’m on Day 8 of the True Love Dates Challenge and I really appreciated today’s lesson. Debra Fileta recommended writing out the 2 versions of our story in this stage of life. She encourages this b/c she wants you to see that there are always 2 perceptions we can have in life. The key… Continue reading 2 Versions of Every Story

Over the weekend I came across a few blog posts written by people in different seasons than myself.  One blogger was a “mommy blogger” and was encouraging moms.  She shared about her grand dreams of doing something “big” for the kingdom and listed several single women in history who seemed to contribute greatly to the… Continue reading Are You Content with Your Portion?

A Glimpse Into My Day

I leave class 30 minutes early because I finished my practice tax return in record time.  The CPA teaching the class is impressed.  I’m just grateful.  Seeing as how I registered a month late for the class, I’m totally relying on Jesus for me to get up to speed on the material.  As usual He’s… Continue reading A Glimpse Into My Day

Thoughts on Happiness, Contentment, & Stuff

What if we are never content b/c we are always striving towards an illusion? A lie we were taught in grade school that if we have XY and Z then we will B, happy. We believe this lie because we do not feel happy now. So we think the stuff we want will make us happy.… Continue reading Thoughts on Happiness, Contentment, & Stuff

30 & Thriving!

One movie I can watch over and over again is “13 Going on 30”.  I mean Jennifer Garner does a superb job of being simultaneously witty and adorable.  Maybe b/c I’m more serious than humorous I’m attracted all the more to that quality in folks.  Her character is 13-years-old and longs to fast forward through… Continue reading 30 & Thriving!
