This Is It

“Eat, Drink and Be Merry. For Tomorrow We’ll Die.” Tripping Billies by Dave Matthews Band I read a devotional every day that is called Savor. It is by Shauna Niequist and it is awesome. It is a year long devotional that I started sometime in May of 2018, so I have still have a few […]

Bittersweet

My devotion this morning brought up this idea of “Bittersweet”.  The idea that even in the sweetest of moments there might be a lining of sadness.  On the other hand in the darkest of hours, that there may be a glimmer of hope. As I get older, I understand this idea much more than I […]

Start Where You Are #Thisis38

I know that it is the second day of the year.  Though, I imagine that most people don’t go really hard into their goals until the 2nd day.  After all New Years Day is still in fact the Holidays. Whatever your goal, your dream, your project or your vision for 2019….Start Where You Are!! I […]

Important Gifts #Thisis38

In my Devotion for yesterday was a message that hit real close to home.  A message about the most important gifts that we give to others. Have you guys seen those images/posts on Facebook about “Presence over Presents”?  Well, I love those.  For multiple reasons.  The first being that I have a very difficult time […]

Dust #Thisis38

In my devotional a few days ago this statement really hit me. “I felt like I had been ground to dust, and those words started to put me back together.” Referring to a friend who had told Shauna it was OK to feel however she wanted about a situation, but she didn’t have to be […]

Trust #Thisis38

In keeping with the same theme from the last 2 days, my Devotional today was once again about Gossip. Really crazy to me that this all happened on the same week that I gave a professional development training on Gossip that I wrote.  Always amazes me how when your eyes are open to seeing it, […]

TRUTH #Thisis38

I had the honor of doing a training for about 40 Elementary school teachers yesterday.  We spoke about Gossip and Staff Communication. It is always crazy to me when so many things in your life line up.  Coincidentally my Devotion for yesterday and today were under that same theme.  Yesterday was “The Value of Truth-Telling” […]

Feasting & Fasting #Thisis38

First and Foremost have to give credit where credit is due Mrs. Shauna Niequist!!  The 365 Devotion Savor, is the devotional that I am currently reading.  Each day after the devotion she poses a question to think about. Today it was “Do you approach food in the same way year-round? Or do your habits change […]

As Is!

Often I use my morning devotion as my inspiration for my blog posts.  Well, today is no different. Savor: Living Abundantly Where You are, as You Are by Shauna Niequist is my current devotional.  It is 365 days long and I started it back in May, so it’ll be with me for along time still. […]

Prayer

I don’t really know who the person was that taught me how to pray.  I mean, I was raised in the church so I just always remember doing it. As I grew, praying looked different to me.  I realized it didn’t have to be quite so formal.  I didn’t always have to have a couple […]
