Engaging Our Five Senses on a Rainy Day

Goodness knows we've had enough of them this winter! Over the past couple of weeks, our area has experienced devastating floods, a tornado, and snow. Gotta love the Carolinas! With March just around the corner, more rain is sure to come. So let's consider some fun and meaningful ways to engage our rainy day senses:   What Can We See? Read rain-related verses. Here are some to get us...

Praying With Our Eyes Wide Open

Praying With Our Eyes Wide Open

Literally. I know, I know. It goes against everything we learned growing up. Bow your heads and close your eyes. To do anything different seems awkward. But within my four walls, I welcome the difference, always praying with my eyes wide open. When it comes to praying with others, however, I cave to tradition.   I don't want to look weird or feel out of place -- and my spirit groans...

3 Ways to Pray More Intentionally + A Tiny Journal Giveaway!

Intentional is my "one-word" for the year. Some think the one-word movement is hokey. I know because that was me not so long ago. And yet, in a world that tugs on us with the same fervor as a hungry toddler, embracing a word that points us to the Word offers an intentional act that can help us stay focused.   Many areas in life deserve more intentionality on my part, but none more than...

5 Ways to Prepare Our Soul for December and a Christmas Gift for You!

  I know, I know. Here I am mentioning Christmas and we've not even carved a turkey yet. But there's a good reason, maybe two. In last week's Tiny House Tuesday, I shared how this would likely be the final 2019 post due to dad's recent surgery. {Thank you for your prayers. He continues to recover well.} Also, despite the desire to create "Silent Night" December days, the real soundtrack...

Tiny House Tuesday // A NEW Front Door Color!

  I tried. Really, I did. If you read Tiny House Tuesday's The Red Door No More, you might remember the giddiness that erupted after painting the front door chartreuse.   For months, the color lived up to its name ⏤ Frolic.   She was a bright pop of color during the day, but when night fell, the color glowed in the dark like a fluorescent beam on steroids. Bless her heart. The...

The Moment Before and After You Hear the Word Cancer

The Moment Before and After You Hear the Word Cancer

"I have a little news to share." I knew dad was taking medicine for a recent issue but it turned out the medicine was no match for the mass occupying most of his bladder. With the biopsy looming two weeks later, I protected my thoughts like a mama bear, refusing to allow "what if's" to sink in and do their damage.   There's a comforting thread of normalcy that hangs in the air between...

Tiny House Tuesday // Steps, Shiplap, and A Hidden Bookcase, Oh My!

  Do you see it? Squinting may be required but the end of our building journey is in sight. Somebody pinch me.   Brian continues to work tirelessly to finish the tiny house because he loves me, but also because he believes God has His own plans for glory through the writing, shared community, and joy that will take place within this 144 square foot space.     Wordpress...

An Introvert’s Journey Toward Biblical Community + Starbucks Giveaway!

Because surely biblical community and coffee go hand-in-hand. For instance, remember the eavesdropping that took place in a North Carolina cafe last October? (If not, you can read about it here.) My being tucked away in a dark corner of a coffee shop isn't unusual, but my willingness to interrupt the conversation of two young women I'd never met? Highly unlikely. If you know me or have...

Tiny House Tuesday // When Two Littles Love a Little Loft

The littles love their tiny loft, and maybe the reading nook too. When Sarah, my daughter-in-law, created these signs last summer I never imagined it would be over a year before two of our six grandchildren had a place to hold them up. Though the nook and loft are not completely finished, the end is finally in sight and as happy as I am, Brian is even happier.   The Reading Nook  ...
