I recently finished watching the movie, Soul, and it’s been on my mind a lot these past few days. If you’ve seen it, you’ll understand why. First, a quick synopsis of the movie: Joe is a middle-school band teacher whose life hasn’t quite gone the way he expected. His true passion is jazz — and… Continue reading Soul
Someone laid on the horn at me for no reason yesterday. So that was fun. I had approached a light in town that had just turned green behind THREE other cars that had all been stopped, so obviously I had to slow down or I would have rammed into the car in front of me.… Continue reading BE KIND.
Today marks the midpoint of the Lenten journey and the one-year anniversary of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Like many others, I gave up Lent for Lent last year (when truthfully, I needed it more than ever). Although we are not out of the woods yet, I have hope that our world is FINALLY heading in… Continue reading Lent 2021
I may or may not have created a Spotify Birthday playlist for myself and decided to add a workout to go with it, hence here we are. 😆 Your new age equals the number of reps you will be doing (Godspeed and apologies to those over 40). As you count each rep, take a trip… Continue reading Birthday Workout
As I sit here in mid-February (almost my birthday – woohoo!) and look out at the snow, I am reminded of how blessed I am to live in an area with four seasons.

Plus, I have a terrible case of the Sunday scaries after being off work for almost 2 weeks,… Continue reading You’re doing great, 2021.
Like many others on this New Year’s Eve, I am taking time to reflect on this wild ride of a year while hoping & praying for better days ahead in 2021. While this has certainly been a record-breaking year of negative news, tonight I am giving thanks for the positives of 2020: Celebrated my nephew… Continue reading 2020 Blessings
One of the silver linings of living through a global pandemic is getting to spend more time at home and READ. I broke my own record this year and read 129 books! That is by FAR the most books I have read in a year. Safe to say, it was tough to narrow it down… Continue reading Top 10 Books of 2020
Happy Thanksgiving! 🍁 Giving thanks in the year 2020 may be easier said than done, but there is always, always something to be thankful for. Need ideas? The classic hymn, For the Beauty of the Earth, has you covered. Thank you, God, for all of these wonderful things and so much more: Beauty of the… Continue reading For the Beauty of the Earth
As we celebrate Christ the King Sunday, a door is closed on another church calendar year. Farewell, Year A. The feast of Christ the King is especially relevant this year – it is a good reminder that no matter who is President, Jesus is King. I thought I would share the qualities of what makes… Continue reading Christ the King Sunday
