    A Perfect Love

    Understanding love is complicated. It’s not black and white, and there are many types of love too. There’s the love we get from our parents, love we get from friends, love we have for people in general, the love we have for our spouses. There is one kind of love that we aren’t always familiar with. Some of us may know this love, others may have known this love at one time, and others may have never known this love at all. God’s love. The Bible talks about a perfect person coming down to us, in the form of a baby, born of a virgin, sent to seek and save…

    Realities

    Brokenness is hard. Nothing about being broken is easy. It’s vulnerable and humbling. As children, we grow up thinking life is full of these fantastic opportunities and experiences we’ll experience as we get older. We dream of becoming something and doing great things! Little by little, things start to shift. Our dreams, goals, desires, they change. But the idea that life will work out does not. Our high school graduation comes, and we begin to branch out, do things on our own, make something of ourselves. Then the college years come and go. It doesn’t matter that we eat ramen noodles for breakfast, lunch, and dinner or that our car…

    Identity

    This topic of identity has come up a lot in recent years. There’s a big confusion regarding seeing ourselves as we truly are. Who would you say that you are? Do you know? Before you list off a bunch of things, let’s take a moment to sit in silence, really take it in, and think about this for a little. If we take away every title, we have. Mother, father, brother, manager, employee, boss, friend, co-worker, nanny, daycare provider, teacher, engineer, programmer, consultant, customer service rep, who do we have?   Yes, I am a daughter, a mother, a wife, a friend. I’m a speaker, a teacher, a hostess, a…

    Perceptions

    Did you ever have a moment where you stopped and looked at someone and asked yourself, “What do they see when they look at me?” Have you wondered what thoughts were running through their mind? There are times when I look at my husband and wonder why he is still married to me. February twenty-fifth will be our tenth wedding anniversary. I am still very much in love with him. It hasn’t always been easy. He isn’t the easiest person to live with, and neither am I. But we are perfect for each other. I cannot imagine my life without him.  He is the most amazing man I know, and…

    Imperfections

    I want to take a moment and be honest with you. I really hate that I do not have it all together. It frustrates me to know that I can’t go through life making things work out. Why can’t I say the right things and do things correctly and consistently? No, of course not! In a perfect world, I could strut around confident that my attire was not wrinkled. I could walk into a room full of strangers and not get choked up in my words and make a fool of myself. Wouldn’t that be great? I can see myself now. I could go about my day perfectly dressed, smelling…

    Am I Too Distracted To Care For People?

    Responsibilities. We can’t run from them. We can’t give them to someone else. We may be able to postpone them or rearrange them at times, but they are ours to take care of. I remember conversing with a couple of friends of mine a few years back. I don’t remember what sparked the conversation, but what I do remember is a statement that was said. This statement has stuck with me and has made such a huge impact on my perspective and how I care and tend my relationships. We were talking about taking care of children when this statement was said, but it can apply to us in our…

    My Cup Overflows Because Of Jesus

    I love my life. My husband and I get to raise our children together, which is a blessing in and of itself. My house is small, and it isn’t perfect. Storage space is a little low; some trim work needs to be done and probably some painting as well, but it fits my family and, more importantly, it’s home to us. God is such a blessing to us and is ever-present in our lives. I know we wouldn’t be where we are without Him. Our friends and family are amazing. We love spending time with them, and, while not always easy, that time brings us all closer together. Recently, some…

    Reflections

    How does a person reflect on their life? Every perception. Every word that was spoken. What do we think about? I know that every circumstance, while some are similar, is still a unique experience. Some are special, and others are damaging. And sometimes, detrimental. Most of those memories that we have accumulated will come from people. Strangers, family, friends, acquaintances. Still, others will come from circumstances that are out of our hands, such as a hurricane or another natural disaster. I think we will agree that we all reflect on our lives at one point or another while we don’t mind reflecting on the good. The bad, well, that’s a…
