A Bitter and Sweet Love Affair

A common hashtag these days is #relationshipgoals. I'm sure you have seen it on plenty of posts unless you live under a social media rock (not a bad thing). The thing is, a lot of the qualities being attributed to as "goals" aren't always qualities we should aim for nor are the relationships being painted as picture-perfect all that they are cracked up to be. It makes me think a lot about what I should be pursuing in my own personal friendships & relationships, my marriage, and most importantly, in my relationship with Christ. And...I've come to the conclusion that I want nothing less than a bitter and sweet love affair...

Fixing My Eyes


I had my annual eye exam last week. Not much had changed in my prescription in the last year but I wanted to get them checked before I ordered a new pair of glasses that didn't come real cheap. With my farsightedness, I can't really read anything without my contact lenses or glasses...but though my eyes are farsighted, my faith has a different problem. My faith tends to be a little more myopic--uncreative and narrow-minded if you will. I want that to be different in my life this year, and I've been having to work out what that is going to mean for me. It's going to mean focus and it's going to mean intentionality. To fix my faith, it's going to mean fixing my eyes.

It's been a good season of filling up but I have been anxious to get back into writing and pouring out. I struggled with where to start back, but the one thing that has been on my heart and mind the most lately is joy and the everyday struggle for it...so if you dare join in the fight, here goes:

When You Give the Lord the Pen to Your Story


Last summer, Landon and I went to shoot guns on our first date. Hindsight is always 20/20, and I see now that this day was just a glimpse of how adventurous my life was going to become. I was changed that day for the better. But we didn't get to where we are today by accident.
