All’s Grace

Last week got off to a rough start. A funk enveloped me and I wasn’t sure I was going to find my way out. Moving can be hard. A thirty-fifth birthday can be hard. Together they became the double whammy that did me in…at least for a couple of days. But sometime Wednesday morning the tide turned. And instead of grieving faraway friends, failed attempts at romance, and fruitless dreams, I started seeing the love that I often...

For the last almost-three weeks I have been in Dallas, trying to keep track of the time as it flies by. The bulk of the first two weeks was spent enjoying my three nieces who were visiting from their home in Raleigh. We had so much fun, experiencing a Texas safari, swimming every afternoon at the pool, and boating on Lake Texoma. Those girls have some energy. I have a new appreciation for moms everywhere! And then last week was filled...

I have noticed the strangest thing. The more “free” time I have, the harder it is for me to get things done. Since I left my job at Thomas Nelson three weeks ago, I have felt more behind than ever.

And of course, I pick three of the hottest weeks of the year. {I need to have my head checked.} “Why would you submit yourself to such torturous heat and humidity?,”  you ask. Well, several reasons. First and most importantly, I am going to spend some quality...

I have been traveling the last five weekends. I don’t how it happened exactly. I would have never planned it that way but… There was a wedding of a close friend and co-worker in Dallas. There was a Women of Faith conference that my sister and Bianca could attend. There was a baby shower in Birmingham that I was helping host. There was Thanksgiving in Asheville with the whole family. There was a reunion of Compassion...

Happy Thanksgiving y’all. I am in Asheville, North Carolina, with the whole clan. We have four generations gathered together to celebrate. And I am so thankful. Today I have a VERY SPECIAL guest-poster. My eight-year-old niece Macon is going to share about Thanksgiving. Hi.  I am Macon and I am thankful for a lot of things, but I am only sharing a couple of all of those things today.  The definite thing I am most thankful for...
