Well, that was a doozy. Instead of Donatist December and all the manner of Christmas joviality I had planned, we all caught Covid instead and without guile, it was the sickest I’ve ever been in my life, even being fully vaccinated. I’m six weeks out and I still don’t feel all the way back to… Continue reading December, jk.
So the first episode of Doctor Who, Season 1: Episode 1 is called Rose and not Pilot, like I thought 😂 It’s alright, grab your fez and a cuppa, because we’re about to cozy up to one of my all-time favorite shows: Doctor Who. The namesake pun of both my blog title and my external… Continue reading Pilot (it’s actually Rose).
I call it no-rush because this post is a week late, get it?? Happy November! Mild apologies for skipping October’s monthly update; we went on vacation and made incredible memories (and some new friends!) that I’ll cherish for the rest of my years, but I still haven’t finished doing the laundry from that trip and… Continue reading No-Rush November

This phrase used to confuse and frighten me, but now it feels more like a grounding reassurance, a safety and security, a binding to God in love. How does one avoid the pitfalls… Continue reading The Antidote to Me, Myself, and I
"So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up." - Galatians 6:9 Tired. If “busy” was the word of the last decade, “tired” may be the most apt this first year into the new decade. We all… Continue reading In the Weary Waiting
Sometimes, but also so many times I lose sight of the Altar and the altars I’ve built as He’s altered my life and I’ll beg and I’ll plead at an abundant table, beseeching Him not to forget me as He patiently refills my cup with living water. And He reminds me of the prayers I’ve… Continue reading Feast
I keep waiting to post this; to try get my words right, to try and make sure I’m not making it worse. We all watched church together as a family this past Sunday morning; I wanted my children to hear how our community of faith would address the events of this week (that are not… Continue reading Listening.
I sat across the table from a man who had walked in the faith more years than I’d been alive.
