Choosing Life More Abundantly

Here follows an account of the birth of friend from high school’s son. I’m reposting a letter that their family received from the anesthesiology who assisted during his wife’s C-Section. This is just a VERY small portion of their journey. I strongly encourage you to read the rest of the story here: http://www.choosinglifemoreabundantly.blogspot.com/ Some of the issues discussed … Continue reading

Sing, Sing a Song…about Christmas

I was entirely prepared-I even had the first paragraph written out-to write a very, very Grinchy blog all about the commercial aspects of the Season. However, while ruminating on that topic, I was distracted by my quest for new, good Christmas music (tricksy iTunes…). I think the first thing I need to do it draw a … Continue reading

The Mountains are calling and I must go/ A Long Overdue Update/Making it Official

So, I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve written. So sorry about that! I’ve been spending more time with my friends out here in Questa, and getting the know the area better! My mom came out to visit for my 28th birthday, and that may have been the best birthday present I’ve ever … Continue reading

Choosing Joy

You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might also pray in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.

Ramifications of Clothing

I’m inordinately excited for tonight. Why, do you ask? And what does that have to do with the title of your blog? Well, I’ll answer both of those questions, keep you pants on! Sheesh! First off, I’m excited because there is a pretty awesome band playing in Red River tonight, and there’s a guy I’m … Continue reading

“I don’t even need your love, but you treat me like a stranger and that’s feels so rough…”

Above quote is from a song called “Somebody That I Used to Know” by my newest obsession, the band Gotye. *sigh* I love them. It’s just a song lyric that I love, and I am neither currently in love or ‘actively’ heart broken. Let’s see, since my last post I’ve had a rather very awkward rearrangement of … Continue reading

A Girl Who Wants More/Torbellino

The following link is to the youtube video for “Love the Way You Lie” by Eminem. Please take this as my disclaimer that A) this song is gritty, and the video a bit violent and B ) despite the fact that this song loosely inspired the poem that follows, I am in NO WAY in … Continue reading

Empire State of Mind…and some other stuff.

Well, hello people! I know it’s been eons since last I posted. Sorry about that. Well, let’s start at the beginning shall we? I’m fresh off a 2 week vacation that involved a rather lot of traveling, at least in the very begining. Drove the 4 hours from Questa to Denver only to miss my … Continue reading

Warning: Jesus Content

Let’s see, let’s see. What to say? The 3 month mark has come and past. I’m still here, and things are…ok. Well, my job is great. Sebastian and I get on like a house on fire. Family is great. Scenery is great. I just don’t really have any friends. I can say that I’ve felt … Continue reading

Good Morning, Baltimore…I miss ya.

So, I’ve never actually seen Hairspray. But, living in Baltimore when this movie came out pretty much guaranteed that you had at least heard this song. So, I have a pretty good familiarity with this particular ditty. And I’ll tell you what, today, this song is strummin’ my pain with it’s fingers, because, you see, … Continue reading
