Last Sunday! (Gratitude, Sermon Notes, and LifeHack Bible Antifragility Excerpt)

Today I'm posting about last Sunday -- about spirit and the Word and worship. About joy and gratitude. That's a bit of a change: So far the majority of my blog posts have been about hair. One of the reasons? Besides the obvious reason that my hair demands almost daily attention, it's because I'm loving… Continue reading Last Sunday!

[Soul] Trading Social Media for Social Meetups

[Soul/Spirit] Songs, Ruthless Trust Excerpts, Message #512, and Mother and Son Wedding Dance :)

I strongly believe that environment and company kept are huge. As we know, the joy of the Lord is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10). This tells me we must protect our own joy as well as others' joy. It can be tough: Grumblers abound! I received a LOT of inspiration about this from a guy I… Continue reading [Soul/Spirit] Songs, Ruthless Trust Excerpts, Message #512, and Mother and Son Wedding Dance 🙂

10th Anniversary Hair, Dinner, Dessert, and Music

On November 9th, my husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary. We will take a special vacation this summer. On the 9th, however, we decided to do a little something: We dressed up, ate at a burger place we'd been curious about, ordered some of our favorite gourmet desserts, and basked in new, good music.… Continue reading 10th Anniversary Hair, Dinner, Dessert, and Music
