Smoke and Mirrors

How many times do you meet someone and wonder how they have it all together?  Or how many times have you found yourself envious of what someone else has?  We have all done it, so it’s okay.  No lying needed.  No cover up required.  Doesn’t mean it happens all the time.  It is a moment in passing, especially if you are working on your walk with our Lord.

Really?

Oh joy.  It’s February.  Valentine’s Day.  I am behind on my cool mom stuff I always try to do.  I don’t have my décor up.  I am sure being sick the past 3 weeks may have something to do with it.  But I have the mom guilt.  If you are a mom, then you know what I mean.  Mom guilt makes no sense.  But we have it.

Your Not Getting Brownie Points

Let’s make it simple.  Stop telling your children to treat others better than you are choosing to treat them.  Stop telling them to follow the Golden Rule when you yourself show the opposite.  Guidance and redirection doesn’t have to be put downs and intentionally hurtful. Continue reading

Not Their Responsibility

I have been wanting to write this for a while now.  I  was not quite sure if I could explain it the way my brain has thought it out.  Probably not, but it is worth a try.  Here goes transparency. Continue reading

Glorious in Panic Mode

Squirrels could be a distant cousin from the ostrich.  At least in my world.  Okay probably not but it sounds good and I am going with it.  They can both hide their heads from the world when they feel like it.  Something people with spur of the moment anxiety cannot do.  Even though we want to.  And it’s better than biting someone right?   I just don’t feel like trying to get all the dirt out of my hair.  Selfish me, I know.

False Convictions

“I am so sorry I punched you in the face!”  Even though that hardly seems like an accident, you forgive.  You move on.  At least you try to. There’s a part of you that is hesitant because you just KNOW it’s going to happen again.  You are waiting for it.  Then you realize if you wait for it, you are not in the right Spirit. A little time goes by and you let your guard down and allow yourself to be vulnerable again.  BAM!  And just like that, the left hook you forced yourself to forget about just knocked you into the corner and on to the ground.  Continue reading

Clothed in Vanity

I am  utterly flabbergasted at people.  More so in the  way they portray themselves to the world.  Whether it be their looks, intelligence, success-or their hairline is better than mine.(long story-elementary school thing currently-nope it does not make sense.)  It is one thing to acknowledge your talents and  another to completely use them to make other people look and/or feel inferior to you.
