Dear Feeler

I’m going to be completely honest: I’m not really sure how to write a letter to you about my tendency to relate to people first on a rational level over an emotional one the way you do.

Dear Thinker

Did you know I (hesitantly) loooooveeee you? Well it seems like we rarely are on the same page. And it kind of hurts me every time I try to open up to you. But I mean, you’re great...

Beautifully Bold

My life verse is Acts 20:24. I want to soak every syllable, I want to bathe in the selflessness of it, to drink up the love for Jesus that drips from that statement. What I’ve come to love more about this scripture is the verses leading to it.

Waiting on Prosperous Plans,

My husband and I recently planted grass in our yard. If you are unfamiliar with the process, it’s a pretty tedious project. But the main task of this project is to wait. You can’t do anything to add or take away from what you have planted or try to manipulate the process to make the grass grow faster. You simply have to wait and hope that you will see the results sooner than what Google predicts.

We’ve all heard it. Some of the most popular books on evangelism teach it. I’ve believed it. “God loves you, but he’s a gentleman. He won’t force you to love him. He waits for your willingness and permission to enter into your life.”

WHY I SAY BAH HUMBUG

Every time I’ve sat down near a screen these impending days before December 25th, it seems to be showing “A Christmas Carol.” It’s a holiday classic. Probably a tradition for some of you to watch it with your families, or maybe the Mickey Mouse version, which is far more up my alley than the 1984 version with the creepy children legs. Watch it, you’ll get it.

LOVE

Yet another week has swiftly come and gone. The weeks and months have been blazing past me with concerning speed since the month of May. I blinked and it was September, opened my eyes again and it was December.

THE THING ABOUT DREAMS

I’m sorry for all the walls I put up and I’m sorry I have a hard time letting you in. I’ve done this for so long. I do it because it's easier, it’s safer. Exposing pieces of myself is not natural for me. But, I am forcing these walls down because I have things to say. I have things that I need to tell you.
