At Thanksgiving, my sweet family member who I always have great conversations with finally sat me down to ask me about it all.  We discussed several things (that I'm not going to lay out here. Your journey is your journey) and then he said - very calmly, with no judgment or instructions...

Mk. Soooo, if we’re being honest, everything after I left school on my birthday/first day of school has been kind of trash. I try to tell it like it is, but I also have to look for silver linings. If you’re my mom or you’re among my bests, you know what’s been happening and you’re holdi...

But pests in the apartment.
But deposit on the new place.
But setting up water and electric.

🍂Leave the situation that is holding you back and causing you pain.

🍁🍂🍃 FALL 🍃🍂🍁 out of love with lesser gods. 

We Christians love to quote the verse about the two greatest commandments: 1) love God and 2) love your neighbor. 

We routinely forget that it says, love your neighbor AS YOURSELF, which implies that you'll do terribly at loving others unt...

🍂🍁🍃FALL🍃🍁🍂on God's grace. FALL on His provision. Fall on HIS faith in YOU. He wouldn't give you tasks so big if He wasn't sure of you. As certain as He created a sun that would rise without fail, as certain as He cannot lie and therefore makes promises on His own name. Fall on the...
