Mountaintop Jumpers

Smoky Mountain Air Show Kids Play Vacation Promotion These are the experiences in life that we seek, these are the mountaintops. The grand expressions of the importance of our lives. This way of life can leave us exhausted. I do not believe this is where we are meant to live. In my short years here on Earth, I’ve come to realize most of my life is spent in-between mountaintops. I will, or should, spend more time between the starting up that mountain and reaching the top than I will sitting there enjoying the view. This climb takes time and perseverance. Hopefully, … Continue reading 

The Zone

This week I was chatting with a friend who will be moving this coming week. He and his family are on a faith journey very similar to ours. He and his wife build my faith each time we chat and I’m so thankful to walk out our faith journeys together! As he and I were chatting this morning, I told him that I don’t know how to do this whole thing because it all just feels so different. Let me explain. I have been known to be a planner. I have been known to charge forward and make decisions. However, this … Continue reading

When I was getting ready for bed on Tuesday night, I just had this feeling that Wednesday was going to be a rough day. I was sad the next day was coming and didn’t know what to do with it. When I woke up Wednesday, that was the first feeling I had upon opening my eyes. I did not want to greet the day. While life had been busy the first half of the week, I know (now!) that Wednesday just made me feel behind. I had not accomplished the “normal” things on my list from Monday and Tuesday. The … Continue reading 

Guard Your Heart

I’m sitting here reading through Numbers 29 with all the instructions on which offerings they had to give when and it gives me such anxiety. It literally is so beyond me that I can’t help but skim over this chapter, but then I feel guilty for skimming because I should want to read all of this. Ah! I’m overwhelmed just reading it, I can’t imagine living it out! “Performance Anxiety.” Those are the words that pop into my head. I’ve gotten over my stage fright, but this performance anxiety goes much deeper. This anxiety doesn’t come from performing, but not performing … Continue reading
