Note to self:

2 Aug

 

Woke up at 4:30am today sick in spirit and body…and with this important newsflash for myself. So today I’m going to try to keep in mind that I am not a failure for not being able to change the world and make everything right. I will be a success when I allow Him to…especially in me.

Many blessings on your time with Him today!

“Touch the Sky”

12 Jul

A little Sunday grace… Lovely.

“I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground…

I found my life when I laid it down.”

 

And if you live in the OKC area, run — don’t walk — to Crossings Community Church to get your tickets for the Hillsong Concert on Saturday, October 17 at 7:00pm. Hope I get to see you there!

And here I thought I’d have all this time on my hands…

“Something really depressing…like a Baby Gap”

24 Apr

Continuing through my stages of grief:

“People are always telling you that change is a good thing. But all they’re really saying is that something you didn’t want to happen at all has happened. My store is closing this week. I own a store…did I ever tell you that? It’s a lovely store. And in a week it will be something really depressing. Like a Baby Gap. Soon we’ll just be a memory. In fact, someone, some foolish person will probably think it’s a tribute to this city — the way it keeps changing on you, or the way you can never count on it, or something. I know because that’s the sort of thing I’m always saying, but the truth is —

“I’m heartbroken.

“I feel as if a part of me has died. And my mother has died all over again. And no one can ever make it right.”

Somebody grab a copy of You’ve Got Mail, put the box of Kleenex in the shopping bag and sit down to watch with me.
