My Ten Minutes: The Guilt

Yesterday I walked through the day, just putting one foot in front of the other. I had this pit in my stomach that hasn’t gone away, I ate about 2 bites of food and just drifted through the day.  The only other time I remember feeling like this was when I was going through my […]

Ten Minutes: Yesterday…

Yesterday morning at 9am I heard a scream come out of my 5 year old that I had never heard before.  My husband and I were still laying in bed, but I went flying down the stairs.  Blood was just gushing down Noah’s head.  I immediately scooped him in my arms, cradled him like a […]

Ten Minutes: Enneagram Personality Type

I have been writing a lot lately about how much I LOVE Annie F. Downs.  Well, I do, I don’t know how I lived before 2018 without even hearing about her.  She reminds me a lot of myself only she sounds like she doesn’t ever get angry or mad. Anyway, that couldn’t be further from […]

Ten Minutes: Letting Go

First of all, last night, right before I went to bed I prayed to God that he would give me a sign that letting go is the right thing. In my head it is and every time I think about it, I know it would be so good, but something in me just isn’t quite […]

Ten Minutes: Grace in the Waiting

For months I have been thinking on something.  Patiently praying and living while I wait.  Trusting in God that he has a plan.  That he is going to let me know exactly when and how it is meant to happen. Another another note, sometime around Thanksgiving I started seriously thinking about getting a second dog.  […]

Ten Minute: See How It Changes

The charge in my devotional today is to do something.  Make a small decision, an e-mail, a meal or a conversation.  One little thing and see how it changes your life. I mean that sounds pretty intense right?  How many people make a million little decisions every single day and then don’t ever reflect back […]

Ten Minutes: Change Always Happens

Change always happens, this was the topic of my devotion reading today.  Yes, Yes I know change always happens.  Am I good at it?  Umm…that would be a no!  Am I getting slightly better at it, yes, but it seems to be at a snails pace. Change to me is like domino’s.  One thing changes […]

Ten Minutes: Breaking Up With Friends

I wrote about this 2 1/2 years ago.  So, I will post that post right here for you: Losing Friends Because of Life Losing that group of friends was seriously one of the hardest things I have ever been through in my entire life.  Even though, now nearly 6 years later I know that everything […]
