I knew I was a fan of Stephanie Buttermore the first time I ever watched one of her videos. Not only was it clear that she was a kind person, but it was clear that she was an all in kind of person. I have […]
Morning. Not stupid early, but not late morning, it’s 8:30am and your eyelids open after a solid, undisturbed 8 hour sleep. You smile to yourself, feeling that euphoric, passionate, life-is-good-because-God-is-good emotion that translates to excitement to spend time with Jesus. You know He’s going to […]
Song. The song It Is Well recently blew up to me when I learned about its original lyrics (originally a hymn and with different lyrics) inspired by a man who lost his job, house, and four children, and all he could do was thank his Heavenly Father, who had overcome him with the knowledge that they were with Him, and that the rest of his life on earth might only be full of Jesus and to His glory.
Pinterest. I recently remade a Pinterest account at the request/recommendation of a friend of Johnny’s who has become a lovely part of my life, as well. I have had a lot of fun with it!
Awe. I am so in utter awe of Jesus and His perfect timing. With His tender voice, He put something on my heart last week, and I, in my weakness and in flesh, kept pushing it away. And He kept convicting, in various ways, with of course nothing but GRACE and HIS GLORY in mind… beyond my imagination… and in His perfect timing, for His sake, that which He put on my heart has been done in His name. For a time, maybe forever, maybe just for now, my food Instagram will no longer be a thing. Lord Jesus, may your will be my way. Dance. Oh, man… it is crazy how many memories of dance as a child have been coming to fruition in my life! Recently, I’ve been thinking about the profound impact dance teachers, colleagues, and classes have had on my life, and how, now, I am a teacher. What a serious opportunity this is for me to pray over children’s lives, and ultimately that the Spirit would be the only presence in His classroom. Oh man, today while teaching I was so aware of Jesus’ presence and unfathomable love for each child.
Miss You. But love Jesus in you more every day. And that very fact brings me to my knees in trembling awe of Him.
Roommates. Mic Drop…. officially living in the same wonderful apartment next year with Maddie, Mary, Autumn, and BETH! So excited that our dear friend Beth will be living with us for the last year before she lives the rest of her life with her husband to be. This arrangement was so Spirit-led as well, and I couldn’t be more blessed.
Missing… So many friends who distance keeps me from seeing, but never from my heart! Chloe, a little shoutout… I miss you, one of my bestest friends, every day! You are in my prayers all the time, and I am so proud of you.
Children’s Lit. I get to write an essay on Harry Potter… as a SCHOOL assignment… WHAT? #livinthedream. By the grace of Jesus and for His sake I am actually able to focus with a nourished brain on my studies the past few weeks, and so in tune in classes, and learning and feeding in and focused on Christ in literature. Maddie. My precious Maddie, Jesus is making such a testimony of His faithfulness and of what happens when we store up treasures via utmost trust in Him. I am a blessed woman getting to witness it. Coffee. I must say, Starbucks blonde roast with vanilla almond milk is quite truly wonderful. Isn’t the first sip of coffee in the morning such a blessing?
HELLO WORLD! I apologize for being MIA for a few days– I’ve just been at my favourite place in the world. And no, it’s not Nashville, though Nashville is a close second. My cottage is a five hour drive north from my house, which of […]
