On Saturday November 17, I flew to North Carolina for the start of a six day vacation. On Sunday November 18, while overlooking Cape Fear in Wilmington, NC, on the site that the rivercourt scenes of my favorite show One Tree Hill were filmed on, my mom called me and told me we were going to lose my favorite person on the planet – my … Continue reading 28.
Disclaimer: For the purposes of this story, the gentleman in question’s name is Bill. Spoiler alert: it’s not actually Bill. Okay, people, strap in. A few things from my last post. I have not been doing well. My house has been a MESS, I haven’t really exercised since my 5K on August 11, I haven’t been to church in three weeks because quite frankly, I’ve … Continue reading Leaving it Behind – Literally
Alright, folks, so we’re just gonna dig right in here. You know how I wrote in my last post that there was a guy who was making me smile? Well, a week later, apparently I don’t make him smile. Or we’re not making each other smile. You get the point – no smiling happening anymore. We done. I have the tendency in life to find … Continue reading Goodbye Summer
So, based on the title of this post, you’ve guessed that I’ve had an interesting couple of weeks. Monday March 19 I had a 4:00pm meeting. One of those 4:00pm meetings. You know the ones…where you shut the door and next thing you know, you’re packing up boxes and being escorted out. For the longest time, I had always thought that getting fired was like a death sentence, … Continue reading Well, I Got Fired.

For some reason, I was drawn to this common verse that is quite often used. For me, this means that to be authentic in pursuit of a relationship with Christ, that … Continue reading John 3:30
This morning, I was up early…we’re talking way early, about 5:45 AM. Not my favorite thing in the world to do, but it was for a good reason. Church! I got up, and I kid you not, before I even went to the bathroom, I went to my kitchen and poured some coffee into my biggest coffee cup, my Batman one! As I was getting … Continue reading Batman & Jesus
This past weekend, I went home with my mom to stay with my dad and see my grandparents. Two years later and that still feels weird to say. Sidenote: My parents have been “geographically separated” for two years so I have two homes (three counting my own house) until dad retires in 89 days and they’re back in the same town. Anyway, I went to one … Continue reading Finding God in the Ordinary
“And He walks with me, and He talks with me…and He tells me I am His own. And the joy we share as we tarry there…none other has ever known.” -In the Garden- I don’t know how to start this post. This is my fourth attempt at writing the beginning words because am I really going to talk about God? Am I really at that … Continue reading My Walk With God
