This is not about what it was going to be about

I was about to name this post “Slack-tacular,” but I realized that one of my other recent posts was called “Slacker.”  Don’t want to create such a negative trend, when I would like to become a more positive person! So, Merry Christmas, fellow Pressers!!  I hope you enjoyed a refreshing time of reflecting on Emmanuel, … Continue reading

Aftermath…my heart right now

Two posts for the price of one today! Previously, I’d written of some heartbrokenness that I’ve experienced over the past couple of months, due to my over-eagerness, a kind of slack man and a flat-out dishonest man. (yes, those are two separate men)  It wore me out, I tell you.  I spent so much time … Continue reading

Slacker

That would be me. It’s been a few weeks since my last post. When I began this blog, I was excited to make regular, super-insightful posts.

Now, it’s confession time: It’s not that my feelings were wiped and not replaced with feelings for another.  There’s a good possibility that that’s what happened.  (Note: this was not what I was looking for. In fact, I thought that NO one could measure up. Ever.) Enter a friend I’ve known for a few years.  We hadn’t seen … Continue reading

Unexpected Answer, part 1

Less than a week ago, a part of my heart and mind were filled with thoughts of a potential relationship with a certain guy.  I’ll use the term “potential” loosely, since he was not seeing the potential.  He recognized how much we had in common and how much we enjoy each other’s company.  We both … Continue reading

In medias res

It seems strange to begin in the middle.  In medias res, if you will.  That’s where I am right now.  I’m in the middle of my 30s.  I’m in the middle of figuring out my next steps.  I’m in the middle of some “heart drama.”  I’m in the middle of God’s love.  I’d love to … Continue reading
