When Life Gives You Lemons…..

Some things are simply out of our control. I am a federal employee, which means starting next week I will be furloughed one day a week for eleven weeks. I will lose over $500 out of my monthly income. This is completely out of my control. Roman and I are planning a day trip to … [Read more…]


Two nights ago I dreamed that Christina Aguilera was chasing me across Alaska with a gun. She was trying really hard to kill me.

Paint, Icing, and Jesus

This weekend was good. Saturday we had a church-wide work day, and lots of hard work was done by all. I helped our youth pastor re-paint the entire youth room (which was not in the original plan for the day, but okay.) It was exhausting yet fulfilling at the same time. There is something to … [Read more…]
