Sue does Friday Fluff (a bunch of randomness), and I liked the idea. I just haven't thought of anything really cutsie yet for the title of my weekly (sometimes daily) randomness.But I am in a wicked place, y'all.WIC-KED. (Maybe Wicked Wednesday's?....hm. I'll chew on it.)Remember when I gave up Starbucks for Lent? Yeah. That's out [...]

No Pain, No Gain.
Just a quick post this morning.Have you ever gone through a situation that was painful, shameful, horror-filled even? And were later able to Thank God for it? Even if it was years later?God reminded me this morning that things I experienced, lived through, survived were allowed by Him. Not because He wanted me to be [...]
Learning Patience…I hate it.
So, as much as I'm mourning our oldest child going off to college this Fall (not that I've shared it with y'all...lol), I've become very impatient waiting final notification from his first choice, CNU. So many of his friends have already received their letters...most of them denials, by the way...I have been itchin' for his [...]
Totally Wigging Out Here.
My stress level is through the roof. Overwhelmed. Anxious. Exhausted.So I did what I am supposed to do. What I have to do each morning. I got down and looked up.Psalm 107:13-15 became my own this morning.13 Then I cried to the LORD in my trouble, and he saved me from my distress.14 He brought [...]
Feelin’ the Strain.
Big happenings at church today. My preggo bff, Jen, had a little episode during Sunday school. Just got the word that she is fine and at home. Also just got some commentary on the event from eye witnesses. When she and her hubby scooted out of class, I caught them out of the corner of [...]

Sometimes…it really stinks.
I've been handling it pretty well, I think.Sure, I think about it often. Okay...every hour of every day.But usually, it is at least with a mix of excitement and anticipation, in addition to the grieving.Until some stupid little thing makes it a reality.Makes it crash down on me in an unbearable crush and all I [...]
Just be Quiet and Listen.
I've been really out of sorts lately. It would be so easy to blame it on hormones. Let's face it, at my age I can blame everything on hormones. And for a day or two, I DID blame it on hormones raging...mine and my sweet angel girl's hormones.I woke up this morning (after sleeping in [...]
It was All Volleyball…All Weekend around here, folks.
We camped out at the DC Convention Center for a huge tournament over the weekend. Lucy's team went 50%. Placed third in their bracket overall. They learned a difficult life lesson over the weekend. Lucy is #23.Their coach, Jason, plays all the girls equally. And can because they are all very good players. We basically [...]
Thank You, Father, for using this season of Lent to keep me focused on Your Son, Jesus. To remind me that durng this time, 2000 years ago, He was spending His last days on Earth as a man. Preparing for what He knew was coming. Preparing His Disciples for what He knew, but that none [...]
