A top bun is the absolute best way to have amazing hair even after rocking a fur hat. When the temps hit negative degrees, I found out that if I put my hair in a top bun, pulled my hat over that, then let it down when I got to my destination, I’d have super waves and not an ounce of hat hair.
Did you know there’s a citrus fruit called a honeybell that is made by crossing an orange and a grapefruit? Apparently they’re only in season for 10 weeks a year, and my mother-in-law sent the hubster and I two huge boxes from Cushman’s by Harry & David.
Sometimes it’s super hard to hand something over to others, even if I know they’re going to do a better job than I did. I learned that when I stepped away from the (in)courage community group that I’d been co-serving (as I like to call it) for several months. The new leaders are going to rock it like no other, and a piece of me wished I could give it another go.
BUT… Right now, the more I take off my plate the more I can really love and invest in those things that are on my plate.
The Gospel of John is legit. I watched this three hour movie when I was home with a cold mid-month. It’s a full-on movie using only the words in the Gospel of John. And it’s so well done that I didn’t even mind watching a dude play Jesus for the most part (sometimes that’s weird for me) and also I thought it brought what actually happened to life better than any other made for TV series or move I’ve seen.
So she’s a big deal, but I just read Liz Curtis Higgs‘ bio this month and it totally floored me. It’s like reading my own story. Minus the Howard Stern and drug usage part. But still, I could relate to every single thing in there… What a powerful example of how truth telling with our stories breathes the hope of Christ into others.
Lastly, I am slow. I take weeks to respond to emails, days to respond to texts, and months to respond to phone calls. My former self would think I’m crazy, but my new self loves taking things one at a time and moving at a more peaceful pace. And, like The Nester says, I like margin.
Good readin’ …
Greg Laurie’s Empty Net Syndrome…
This month’s top posts
And lastly, y’all heard the big news, right? Starting very soon gospel girls will be Pray, Live, Create. The same blog with the same focus and a whole lot of praise for what He’s doing in our lives.
This wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t ask, what did you learn and love? Lay it on us!
