I’m always amazed by how God works in my life in the ways I least expect. The simplest words uttered by my son have totally transformed the way I viewed time spent with God. “Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength…” (Psalm 8:2) I am still nursing my son, who … [Read more…]
This post has been in my drafts for several weeks. I had almost the entire post written (on my yola site) when I went to do a preventative save and somehow ended up losing the whole thing. Writing this post was by far one of the most emotionally draining things I have done in my blogging … [Read more…]
I feel like my blog readers deserve a bit of an update after all the blogging I did about my personal issues with Facebook and my month-long deactivation in April. If you are new to my blog or would just like to refresh yourself on what I’m talking about, you can read my posts here: … [Read more…]
I have been contemplating writing this post for about two weeks now, but I haven’t been able to get the thoughts out…figured I’d just go ahead and start rambling and hope that something makes sense. After my Moody May post, I had several people chide me for being too hard on myself, trying to be … [Read more…]
This post is a continuation of my inner thoughts and turmoil about my decision to stay off of Facebook or get back on May 1st…if you have not read my previous posts, PLEASE read them here, as they are important for understanding the entire picture of what’s been going on: Deactivate-Activate Doubts and Reassurances On … [Read more…]
It’s been 27 days since I first deactivated my Facebook account. Honestly, they have flown by.
Now that I’m no longer on vacation I’m realizing it’s a bit harder to stay off of Facebook. I’m feeling the urges and desires creeping back…the doubts that maybe this won’t work for me. Yesterday at the hospital, I saw two of my Facebook friends. It was weird for me. I felt kind of disconnected … [Read more…]
We are coming to the end of March. At the beginning of March, I set the goal for myself to “Make March Matter!” March has been difficult, full of many tears, but the difficulties I have faced have been growing pains, exercise pains, soul-searching pains. And I have definitely “made March matter.” I’ve exercised more, … [Read more…]
I texted a friend of mine a few pictures of my ball gown. There was a photograph which I didn’t like because I felt that it accentuated some parts of my figure that need some work… although the words I used in my comment to her were “back fat.” She didn’t let me get away … [Read more…]
Russ and I have been discussing some concerns with our website for quite some time. We want to be able to share with family and friends, especially those who aren’t on Facebook, without bringing ourselves unnecessary danger by having too much information out there on the internet. Thus, we have renamed our website, taking off … [Read more…]
A late-night comedian/talk show host named Jimmy Kimmel declared November 17, 2010 to be “National Unfriend Day…” which is “…a new holiday he hopes will inspire Facebook users to unfriend the social networking contacts that aren’t real friends.”
the guest bedroom: the bathroom: the front of the house (I planted the mums myself): you know it’s home when you start baking pie… There will be more to come in the near future, but this organizing and decorating phase is taking me a little bit longer than I expected.
I feel the need to blog this morning, and I have no idea why. Right now I find myself entirely frustrated with life. I am in no mood to encourage anyone, but I guess God wants me to write this anyway. I was awoken shortly before seven this morning (after being up until after midnight … [Read more…]
