…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

Thankful Thursday

  Random—that’s what my thoughts are tonight. But gonna share some little tidbits of gratitude anyway. Am thankful for…. blueberries, fresh, tasty blueberries—not just to save for a recipe, or a salad, or a pie…but to eat right out of a cute little bowl. I’m thankful I didn’t have to share any of them. I’m also sad that I didn’t have to share any of them. And, am thankful for flowers–not purchased for me, but purchased by me for aRead more

little ripples

So, some mornings are more full than others. This morning was one of those for me. I had a few meetings (which come with lots of paperwork where it’s oh-so-legally-necessary to dot all the i’s and cross the t’s.)  To complicate my day  a bit further, our school system has changed computer programs (fun, fun!) which requires a lot more energy and time and focus to be able to complete the necessary forms. I was running a bit late thisRead more

nothing.

“The wonderful thing about praying is that you leave a world of not being able to do something, and enter God’s realm where everything is possible. He specializes in the impossible. Nothing is too great for His almighty power. Nothing is too small for His love.” ~ Corrie Ten Boom   I love this quote so much…because I love this truth that takes the eyes off of me and my abilities (or lack thereof), and puts it on God andRead more

Carry on…

Praying for some dear friends and through some things this morning and found myself singing these words….  I love that God doesn’t pull back from the difficult things in life. He calls us to draw near to Him, to trust Him, to walk in His ways. He calls us to greater things than what we can imagine…but sometimes the pathway isn’t what we’d imagine or choose, that’s for sure. I love that He can use all things. ALL things. TheRead more

plans

“In grace, he leads you where you didn’t plan to go in order to produce in you what you couldn’t achieve on your own.”  ~ Paul David Tripp, New Morning Mercies DevotionalRead more

…a few thoughts on certainty…

I love morning. It’s like a fresh start. Sometimes it comes a lot sooner than I’d like and I’m the queen of the snooze button, but I still love mornings. I read some good things this morning. Some mornings, it’s just a quick devotion. Other  mornings, I get to linger a bit over coffee and music, and some mornings, like this morning, even though I was running a little bit behind, I decided to skimp on other things–not to skimpRead more
