When the Going Gets Tough…..

…..the Tough dig their heels in deep and pray harder. And that is exactly where Roman and I find ourselves these days: praying a lot harder. “I’m sad.” he lamented over the phone.“Why are you sad?” I asked.“I can’t find a job…..” he said quietly. The past few days have been really hard. Roman had … [Read more…]

Legs of Steel

More like, “my legs have been beaten with steel beams”. So you know what that means? Yup, yesterday was my first day at the gym (a.k.a. the place that smells like sweaty socks). The original plan was for me to do upper body on Monday, and then lower body/back on Wednesday, but she wound up … [Read more…]

I Did It

Yup, that’s right. I did it. I went to the building that smells like sweaty socks (a.k.a. the gym at work) and got the physical assessment done. She’s going to work up my fitness plan over the weekend and I will start hitting the weights on Monday. I am excited because I finally got off … [Read more…]

Don’t Miss This

The women’s class at my church has been going through a series called “Undercover” by John Bevere. Last night was Week 3, and let me tell you…that stuff hit home hard. The basic theme of this study is submission to authority: authority to those who have been placed over us and submission to the ultimate … [Read more…]

Anchovies and Sweaty Socks

Let me go ahead and apologize for any and all references to the word “anchovy”, including the title of this post. I’m having a ‘thing’ with that word right now. Ahem. You see, it all started when Roman sent me a text this morning. He was trying to be sweet, but his phone had other intentions. “You … [Read more…]

Writer’s Block

I’ve always loved reading and writing. I learned how before I was even in K-5 and have been reading books and writing silly stories ever since. But for the past few days, I’ve logged onto this blog several times, written the title to a post, only to later delete the title and log out. I’m not sure why, but … [Read more…]

Step 1: Admit You Have a Problem

Roman and I realized last night that we have become one of those people. You know who I am talking about. You’ve seen them in the park and snickered at them. You may have even seen them on TV and laughed at their silliness. You joke about them with your friends, and vow you will … [Read more…]

TV anyone?

So, this happened over the weekend: Image from: http://www.gtvhub.com/2010/10/30/dish-network-begins-selling-logitech-revue-for-179-00-plus-shipping/ Woo hoo! Goodbye rabbit ears that never worked, hello countless episodes of NCIS and CSI. So what made us finally make the switch? 1. Roman and I did not want to get satellite TV until we got done with school. It was already a distraction with … [Read more…]

Who’s Mouthpiece are You??

It’s funny how we have so many things that we say but then don’t follow ourselves. “Think before you speak” is one of those statements we make to children, but then ignore ourselves. But let’s take that statement and add a little more and say “Think of who you are speaking for before you speak.” Wait, what? Don’t … [Read more…]

50 Shades of Danger

We’ve all heard the song “Oh be careful little eyes what  you see”. We used to sing it in Sunday School and VBS and all of those other great children’s programs. I even remember singing it during class in first grade. (Note: if I have any really young readers out there, you may want to … [Read more…]
