So I’m going through this thing right now… You see, “writing” has been “what I do”… …my preferred way of communication… The words have flowed onto the page every day for a few years now, and really, for most of my life, off and on… And while I still write in my every day for… Read More 4.7.2022 – So I’m going through this thing right now…

I no longer write on this blog every day… (There, I said it… …and do you know how much I’ve wrestled with it?) Do I still write? Yes. Will I still write? I sure hope so!

As I’m sitting here at the table this morning, I’m listening to the cheeping sound of around 50-60 baby chicks that are currently in our living room… It’s a sweet little sound. 🐣 There’s a lot going on in our world right now.

One of the things I am learning about living life in the midst of facing fears and anxiety, is learning to accept… that fear and anxiety might not always just “go away” when I’d like them to “just go away.” Learning to accept… that I won’t always be swept up and “rescued” from all of… Read More 2.19.2022 – Learning to Overcome

I’ll be honest… it seems I’ve been facing a battle within the place of my time of communion with the Lord.

This morning has been a little different than usual.

God has been reminding me from time to time, over the last couple of years, of these memories with Him (that I had forgotten until I found the old home videos).

The other week I slipped into an intense state of anxiety… And then after a little while of getting completely wound up in that I realized I had finally spiraled down into depression.

You know what? Over the last couple of weeks, to be very honest, I have dipped into this “what if, what if” kind of thinking.
