Road Trippin’ Part Six

Okay y’all I’m so sorry this wasn’t posted this morning.  As you’ll probably have noticed if you follow me on Instagram, I went out of town this weekend.  I just got back in town after 2 am, and stayed at my friend’s house instead of going all the way home, so I just got home about 2 hours ago and have been unpacking.  I started writing this on the ride home last night but ended up falling asleep! Anyway, some friends of mine and I made a trip to Richmond, Virginia for another friend’s birthday party.  We stayed at her house and had ourselves a marvelous time.  The birthday party was held about 30 minutes away from her house, and we had so many adventures just getting to where the party was held that I just have to tell! Of course, there was a spiritual parallel to be seen if we looked.

Another Update/Road Trippin’ Part 5

I normally try to do a devotional post on Mondays, but last week and this week, I’ve been more in the “update” mode.  Perhaps it’s because I haven’t written all these posts out ahead of time like I did previously this summer.  You may notice that this post isn’t coming out in the 9 o’clock hour, as I aim for my posts to normally do.  That’s because this has been a spur-of-the-moment week this week.  Incredibly spontaneous, it’s been a week juxtaposing “Be still” and “Go”.

Not Going Back

In Sunday school the other weekend, my class and I were talking about the advances in technology over the past 100 years: about how people used to ride in horses and buggies, then cars and airplanes and space shuttles.   Continue reading “Not Going Back”

Looking for Lovely

Looking for Lovely by Annie F. Downs

This book, oh my goodness! It hit me right in the middle of the anxiety storm brewing up around me last week.  I listened to it on my travels as I drove and it nearly made it cry, it was so personal.   Continue reading “Looking for Lovely”

Road Trippin’ Part 4

I went on a road trip this past weekend towards a destination I had mixed feelings about. I didn’t know what it was going to be like when I got there and I was mostly afraid of the unknown. We were traveling through the countryside and I was praying as we went along. As I looked out the window I saw rows and rows of crops–corn, I believe–growing. From a distance, it all looked to be one big, intimidating mass of growth–no beginning, no ending, just growth and growth and growth and it was easy to get scared at the vastness of it.
