What will our story . . . your story be? People naturally find comfort in seeking to be around those that reflect their version of normal, or those with whom they have a lot in common. Every person whatever the race, ethnicity, generation, gender, or socioeconomic status has a tendency to drift this way. It

You are not defeated! Feeling defeat and being defeated are two different things. It’s so easy to feel defeated when the story isn’t over. And let me tell you, if you are breathing, the story isn’t over! There is nothing worse, in my mind than finishing a day of work, or the time you have
We all need people! Loved ones, friends, piers, even those we disagree with, mentors near and far, and those that we influence. Our family didn’t toast glasses of sparkling cider at midnight like usual this New Year’s Eve. I love traditions like this as they somehow connect us to the past, present and future all
By the grace of God I didn’t act on my thoughts or feelings that day. My husband texted me that he was at my office and asked if I could take an early lunch. I couldn’t. I began to think of how he could go get us lunch, bring it back and by then I’d
We shouldn’t be surprised when warfare happens. Why do we think pushing against the grain should be easy? I never thought I would say this, but doing the right thing won’t always make you feel good at the time. Sometimes it’s difficult and it feels opposite to what your mind is telling you, even though

Nothing about it made sense. Our Plans or God’s? Maybe it doesn’t even matter. We had prayed all summer long and felt nothing but a desert in our souls. My husband’s freelance work begin drying up more and more. The owners of the home we were renting decided to sell. We had no visible direction.
Irrational fears don’t play fair. Like when we don’t apply for a new job because we’ve worked on one computer platform for so long that we have convinced ourselves we’ll be quite computer illiterate on the other one. This may sound stupid y’all, but fears often do in hindsight. Little irrational fears combined with larger,
Irrational fears may be silly, or embarrassing, but y’all they are for real. I know they are no joke because of how many times I find myself angsting over or paralyzed by one. I bet you’ve experienced this in one way or another in your life too. The first and only job I was ever
Nothing prepares us for lightning strikes stripping the bark off of trees during storms or seasons of life where it’s hard to focus, as our life takes on new shapes and forms we’ve never seen. Maybe we have less time, or too much time. We may find ourselves pivoting from the path we’ve known. A
I sat in my grandfather’s lap and easily convinced him to get hearing aids when no one else could. Not my mom (his middle daughter), or my grandmother. They may have tilled the ground, and prepared the soil of his heart and mind. But, it was his brown haired, brown eyed persuasive granddaughter, who had
It’s easy to let things go and get stuck in a rut like the groves on a spinning record. We live in Mississippi and because of the “Yazoo Clay” or shifting soil the foundation of homes slightly move over time. This can cause cracks in the walls, and doors that no longer close with ease.
If I don’t write things down, I will often forget. Whether it’s what I need at Walmart, the things I need to accomplish at work, or the bill that needs to be paid by tomorrow. It’s easy, right? We have so much happening in our lives that keeping track of it all can be challenging.
It’s so quiet and yet noisy all at the same time. Traffic is charged up on the internet roadways, while diminishing on our physical highways for a time. Some of us get vocal trying to find our way. Others of us pull back, and observe, while looking for firm footing to stand on, as we
