I know what size God wears.

In a recent conversation with my bestie, we were discussing various women and how old they are. Now before you get worried, we were not gossiping. We were trying to make room assignments for our women’s retreat, and since the oldest girl gets the biggest bed in each room, age is important. And, it’s a good thing I had help, because I guessed the wrong age every single time! My guesses weren’t just a year { read more… }

the end of Coke Zero and me.

I’m breaking up with Coke Zero.  It’s the end of Coke Zero and me. Well, at least I want it to be, but I’m failing miserably and I want to quit trying to quit every single day because failure and me are not friends. But I don’t just need the end of Coke Zero… Before we can find God, we have to find the end of ourselves.Scripture is clear: the starting line for faith is surrender. There will be { read more… }

how to see April in January.

Please do not let the title scare you. I am not in possession of a crystal ball or tarot cards, although I will confess in my younger years I was a big fan of the Magic 8 ball.  But none of those things is required for me to tell you how to see April in January.  This past Friday I made a familiar trip to the bus station.

palindrome whispers.

Wanna learn something new and practically useless? Of course you do. That’s why you google so often.  So here’s goes: The longest palindrome is tattarrattat.

Tattarrattat is onomatopoeic (now you’re googling something else), and it  means knock on the door. It was coined back in 1922. And did you know that there are palindrome phrases, too? Like “Mr Owl ate my { read more… }

what couch cushions can teach us about prayer.

We currently do not own a couch, so I feel a tad bit deceitful with this title. And since it’s completely my fault we are couchless because I gave away a perfectly good leather couch so I could have a trendy new white couch… and despite all the best promises of the salesperson, said new white couch stayed white exactly two days, after which I no longer liked or wanted it. So we’ve been couchless the last year because can you { read more… }


“You’re going to feel like hell someday if you don’t tell your story.” As a general rule, I don’t use profanity. Please don’t read any smugness into that statement, as I fight a sharp tongue, sarcasm, and all sorts of other trash talk on a regular basis. I keep Psalm 141:3 on repeat in my prayers as both confession and petition. I do; however, tend to avoid most four letter words except if I stump my toe, you’ll likely hear me say, “Cuss. Cuss. Cuss.” It { read more… }
