remembering to think

It’s important to think about what we’re thinking about. It’s beneficial to pay attention to what we’re paying attention to. So often we will find that we see what we seek. That’s why it made me smile to see a splash of green on the oh-so-very-gray morning this morning. Once I saw the green of Spring, the gray almost complemented it and wasn’t so bad…even on an oh-so-very-gray morning in our nation. I’m thankful in the midst of struggle, there’sRead more

One day.

One day. One day at  a time. That’s a good slogan or motto. More than a motto, it’s a truth to hold on to.  This truth that we have this moment, this day, and don’t know what the next day will or will not hold is something that doesn’t need to be made light of. This motto, this truth, this slogan reminds us to focus on the now. I love Jesus’ words to “let the day’s own trouble be sufficientRead more

Known.

I’ve been singing a new song a lot lately. If you want, you can click the link below while you read….it’s a great song ❤ And it made me thinking about knowing, and being known…so here are some of my oh-so-informally-written thoughts and reflections. (And if you don’t have time to read, well, please listen to the song…it’s so good…) a knowing can chase away the most gnawing of thoughts… a knowing can be an anchor in hurricane-force winds ofRead more

Ugh. It’s the back to school January blues for this chick. I’ve been trying to focus my mind and have been failing miserably.  I tried thinking of all the thinks*  I’m thankful for,  prayed,  ( (things*, but I think it’s an appropriate typo, lol!)  I prepared lessons, and it all came up a bit short. It came up short that is… until I started to sing…and lift up my voice. So this song was sung/written on the way to DollarRead more

…a few thoughts on interruptions…

As I walked across the parking lot on Friday, I felt as tired as I’ve felt in a long time.It was a Long week. A very long week. This little period between Halloween and ThanksGiving with full moons and sugar overloads and assessments and staff changes have gotten the best of yours truly. I am dog tired. Teacher tired. A good friend of mine was walking across the other end of the parking lot…and instead of calling out to her,Read more

in the quiet

In the quiet morning light Lord I turn to  you In the evening, dark of night Draw me near to you Lifter of my heart, my eyes You are in it all May the moments of my days Seek you in it all See you in it all.  Read more

Remember

There’s a new song that caught my eye before it caught my ear. I  loved the visual first…and then the acoustics drew me in…but the lyrics? They won me over ❤  They are about remembering who God is.  “Oh my soul” needs to remember and be reminded so often….and little things like a good song can do that…   It’s a good thing to remember good things ❤ It’s a great thing to remember the great things God has done.Read more
