Sweet Dreams

So tomorrow are finals and I've got myself in a tizzy - nervous stomach, lips are sore apparently from chewing them, muscles tired from overexertion and mind reeling from final efforts at memorization.   Your basic it's-finals-tomorrow-and-I-feel-unprepared nervousness.   As a last ditch effort at relaxation before I headed to bed, I swung by a favorite old blog… Continue reading Sweet Dreams

Aaron’s Patience by Tiffany Patterson

Aaron's Patience by Tiffany Patterson is an intense love story, I think. What I disliked:  I really hated how overbearing the male lead was.  He was possessive, demanding, and unrelenting.  Therefore, I hated how weak the female lead was.  I liked her in the beginning, but I liked her less as the book went on. … Continue reading Aaron’s Patience by Tiffany Patterson

Some Girls Do by Clodagh Murphy

“We’re not going to fall. We’re going to soar.”

Congratulations to the Eagles on their win last night, felling our Vikes and soaring to the Super Bowl. Though I can't say I was rooting for the Eagles last night, I just may in a couple weeks.  IF they quit trying to steal our chant that is. I mean, honestly, the chant is all we've… Continue reading “We’re not going to fall. We’re going to soar.”

You have to ask in order to receive it.

Though this line has more to do with family and relationship struggles, it took on a personal/religious meaning for me this week. When driving home from class last week, I let my mind wander freely and uninterrupted.  I was scared when this free brain roaming led straight to my biggest fear: losing my family. I… Continue reading You have to ask in order to receive it.
