My roommate has a magnet on the refrigerator that says "We plan... God laughs!" and I'll be honest,

 

most days I don't like that little magnet because I know that The Bible instructs us to be wise in our daily plans, so it bugs me because it's not the full truth. But I was reminded again today that there is truth behind this little saying.

 

You see the last couple of weeks I have found myself fighting to not be overwhelmed. I have had a couple unfinished things hanging over my head and I am not the type of person who is spurred on my these kinds of things. Nope, I'm an under-functioner so when I feel feel overwhe...

I've written before about how God so often speaks to me in song lyrics. I'm not talking about the songs we hear in church, even though they often speak to my heart in a beautiful way. No I'm talking about The Killers, Lee Brice, Evanescence, Tori Amos, Travis Tritt, and last week Billy Myers.

 
If the name doesn't sound familiar, years ago she had a hit called Kiss The Rain and it was so good I bought the whole album and every song was great. Last week it came up on my playlist and one song stuck with me: Opposites Attract. The song is about exactly what the title implies: two people who are complete opposites end u...

The process of creating is, for me at least, a very messy one. It usually includes paint stains on all of my pants, remnants of glue and ink on my hands, and tiny pieces of paper scattered all over my nice black carpet....

 


For the past few days I've been working on a project for my small group, which means despite the fact my laundry is folded and put away, the dishes are all done, and for once there's no suitcase half packed in the middle of the floor, my cute little studio looks like a tornado hit it. But honestly, there is no point in picking up the paper and sparkles and random cuteness that will soon be used...

I don't know about you, but when things don't go the way I planned, I tend to run, or quit, or just avoid. In the past if someone hurt my feelings I would simply cut them off and justify the behavior with some crap about trusting people until they proved themselves untrustworthy, blah, blah, blah. If someone got on my nerves, I would just avoid them at all costs. A relationship got complicated or didn't live up to my expectations and I was out the door. Someone got too close, you know the kind of close where they could easily screw you over because they know your baggage, I would get scared and I ran. If I felt I h...

As long as I can remember, God has given me the amazing gift of having women in my life I can look to  as an example. There has never been a lack of women who are older, whether it be by 5 years or 50 years, who challenge my beliefs and thought processes, and I am a far better person because of them.


The other day I was talking to one of these amazing friends and we were sharing how God is stretching and challenging us. This friend is a lot like me, a renaissance woman who's life doesn't fit into a 9-5 kind of mold. I know whenever my life takes a turn off the "normal" beaten path, she will understand. I can't put...

My best friend has been telling me about a show called Touch. I didn't watch it until a couple days ago because I had enough shows I was watching and didn't need to get hooked on anything else. Then I noticed it was on Netflix, so I started watching while putting away laundry and I must admit, I didn't want to go anywhere. Instead I wanted to put my jammies back on, crawl into bed and watch the whole series in one sitting.

 
The show is good, but that's not necessarily what got me hooked. More than being well written and produced, it is a phenomenal soundtrack for a conversation with God. The premise of the show is...
