You ever feel unsettled in your mind? Like, you have a lot going through it, and you’re not sure where to put your focus, and you’re waiting to see where God takes you. Not that you’re unsure in your faith, just in what path He’s taking you down. You’re at a fork in the road… Continue reading Forks and Tethers
Y’all….this is me today. I don’t know if it’s the crazy week I had last week, that has continued into this one. Or lack of sleep. Or just life in general. I’m just fried y’all. The puzzle pieces ain’t fitting together. There’s too much going on up there, and I just want to run. I… Continue reading Brain Fry
The Family that Works Together…
I used to work with Jeremy on the job site a good bit when he was short-handed. I actually enjoy going with him and shooting grade, raking ditches, and laying Infiltrator. There is nothing like the tired after installing a septic system in the hot Alabama July sun. Nowadays, however, my job is mostly keeping… Continue reading The Family that Works Together…
A few months ago, I reconnected with Jeremy’s cousin, Tenia. I say reconnected because although we were family and neighbors, we had grown apart and taken different directions in life. In the past 3 or so months, our paths have converged once more, and our friendship has been taken to a whole new level. She… Continue reading Lydia’s House
Sometimes we have to be “selfish” in order to be “selfless”. Let me explain, with a couple of examples. Last night, Jeremy and I were praying together. After, he said he felt like it was a selfish prayer because he didn’t stray away from praying for our family. But I think that’s okay sometimes. Our… Continue reading Selfish?
A Day of Rest and Renewal
I don’t know if you’ve picked up on this, but we’re busy people over here at the Johnson house. There is always somewhere to be or something that has to be done. Last week was a particularly long and busy week. Not a bad week, just long and busy. So with nothing on our calendar… Continue reading A Day of Rest and Renewal
Take a Hike
My family loves to go on hikes. We are blessed to live a hop, skip, and a jump from the state park and like to hit the trails there when the weather is nice and we have the time. Our friend/youth minister, Daniel, loves it even more than we do, and goes every chance he… Continue reading Take a Hike
Can I Be Real A Second
Can I just say…it’s been a week. Not necessarily all bad, just long. Tyler got his braces off on Monday, so for the meantime, the Johnson house is braces free. Except I took Audrey for a consultation on Tuesday. She still has a few months, but it won’t be much longer before we have #3… Continue reading Can I Be Real A Second
You Ever Feel Like You’re Drowning?
I had a good friend make a good-natured jab at me this morning, and I thought, you know what, that hurt my feelings a little. But at the same time, it was just another drop of water over my already covered head. And I know this person absolutely didn’t mean anything by it, and would… Continue reading You Ever Feel Like You’re Drowning?
What Makes a Soul Feel Lost?
What makes a soul feel lost? Yes, we say lost soul for one who doesn’t know about Jesus. But what about those who do, but still feel lost? Not eternally lost, but like they are still searching. What are they searching for? Understanding? Either being understood by others or having their own understanding or wisdom.… Continue reading What Makes a Soul Feel Lost?
