I am pondering these words . . .“Every human interaction offers you the chance to make things better or to make things worse.”
– Barbara Brown Taylor
I am thinking . . . if love is why I’m still here, how many ways can I live out that purpose today that honors the Father?
I am thankful . . . for 21 years of marriage (as of yesterday, September 4) with this saint of a man
One of my favorite things . . . is free and discounted Kindle eBooks, often found here
I am listening to . . . a few new (to me) subscriptions from NPR podcasts (Most Emailed Stories, StoryCorps, Story of the Day, …)
I am studying . . . more about wisdom literature through this series at Do Not Depart
I am realizing . . . my newest round with pain is throwing me even more on God’s grace and intentional surrendering to him; I want to get better at both
I am praying . . . about what God will show others and me as we start memorizing Ephesians 1 in two weeks—registration is still open here
I am appreciating . . . pre-printed sticky notes of Ephesians 1 from Scripture Stickies made special for our memory challenge
I am excited about . . . seeing my kids excited doing things they enjoy, like Jenna taking pictures this year for her school’s newspaper
A picture to share . . . her favorite assignment so far—photographing the on-campus Pentatonix concert (a capella winners of the 2011 The Sing-Off—we loved them!)
