Forgive and Get

So there was this dude from back in the day. He’d gotten himself into some pretty serious debt (the equivalent of millions of dollars) by borrowing from the king of his land, and on budget-balancing day, the king decided he wanted everything settled up. As you’d guess, the guy didn’t have the funds to pay… Continue reading Forgive and Get

Hope & Joy, Coming Right Up

I’m gonna get right to it. There are two things happening tomorrow that I am super excited about! One is an online devotion study centered around hope, and the other is a photo-a-day project that highlights joyful things. BOTH of them begin tomorrow. Hope-and-joy-focused awesomeness. Who doesn’t love that?? So, a bit of explanation: There’s… Continue reading Hope & Joy, Coming Right Up

It has been so enjoyable taking time this month to write about some of the many special people that I love. New friends and long time friends, acquaintances and folks I would love to spend more time with. They’re all special in their own unique ways. But I have to admit there’s one person I’d… Continue reading 31 Days of My People: THAT Girl. {29/31)

Chihuahuas. Brain surgery. Presidents. Elementary school. Bikers. Tin crosses. Jiu Jitsu. Myles Pizza. Social work. Air conditioning. Post-it notes. Tattoos. Jesus. What in the universe could these things possibly have in common with one another? Nothing at all. They have absolutely nothing to do with each other except for the fact that they’re all part… Continue reading 31 Days of My People: Greg & Tiff {28/31)

31 Days of My People: The Target Lady {23/31}

As soon as she spoke and began dragging my items across the belt, I asked her, “West Virginia or Kentucky?” She paused and squinted. “What’s that, young lady?” “Are you from West Virginia or Kentucky?” When she smiled, her plump cheeks jiggled a bit, which made me love her all the more. West Virginia it… Continue reading 31 Days of My People: The Target Lady {23/31}
