2013 Is Over? How’d That Happen?

While spending 30 minutes on the treadmill Wednesday, I started thinking through the year. So much happened, yet it seemed to me as though the end of 2013 brings the hope of an amazing 2014.  2013 was a year of change, whereas 2014 looks like a year of a new normal. Here is a summary […]

It’s Been A Long Time

It’s been a while A REALLY LONG TIME since I last posted on this blog, and I have to be honest in saying I have missed writing here and have not all at the same time. Why I am starting again is somewhat of a mystery to me, but in a class this past semester […]

Redefining Impossible

While searching around youtube this morning, I found this video. It is incredibly inspiring and is an amazing example of redefining what is impossible. I hope you enjoy it as well.  

Quotes to Ponder: 18 April 2012

I have found that many of the new Calvinists simply are not aware there are any viable alternatives to their newfound doctrinal faith. Through reading books by their favorite pastors and teachers, many of them are convinced that all alternatives– and especially the dreaded “Arminianism”– are man-centered, biblically unsupported, and intellectually weak.

Army Ten Miler 2011: Not what I expected

On October 9, I ran the Army Ten Miler. I have to admit, I did not know if I would be able to run this race a month before it happened due to the pneumonia, but I was feeling strong, and my coach agreed to allow me to run it. I set a goal, one […]

Putting Life in Perspective

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in parenting TB for the future I forget to enjoy where he is right now, and today I read an opinion piece from the New York Times that reminded me just how much the future pales compared to enjoying the here and now. Emily Rapp’s son, Ronan, has Tay-Sachs […]

Running 26 Sept-9 Oct

I do not know what it is about traveling for work that renders me completely unable to blog, but I never seem to get it done on the road, so here’s two weeks wrapped in to one (and absent a photo, as I type this on the train!). I had two weeks of pretty good […]

Mistakes and Forgiveness

I am generally not in the business of minding other people’s business. However, there are times in life when I look at the responses of others and wonder what is going on. Allow me to explain my latest experience. Like many others, I ordered a light table from Constructive Playthings.  I saw it advertised on […]
