Posting the picture above reminds me...we need to get a new family pic. Didn't we JUST take this one? Actually no. This is at least 3 years old. Now, I have a beard, my youngest is a Senior in high school and my oldest is out on her own, ya know...adulting. This time next year my wife and I will be empty nesters.
A simple reminder not to count your days, but make your days count. It goes by quick folks.
Are you an empty nester? What's the BEST part about it? Comment below.
Look, I’m not a writer of the words. So this isn’t going to communicate what I’m feeling as accurately as a true wordsmith would. This is the Executive Summary though…I’ve called myself a Christian since I was 23 (currently 48) but due to how some Christians interact with and respond to other Christians AND non-Christians, I think I’m out!
I’m here to redeem the online space for Jesus. Not use it for judgement and the spreading of hate.
I short video about how cool it is to be given a new name…on earth and in heaven.
Without any understandable explanation, my day started out with me feeling overwhelmed, unworthy, selfish, and if I'm brutally honest feelings of being unloved. I was on my knees taking these feelings to my ultimate Counselor. Even still, I felt so "full". I made my way out the door to face the world with a mask on so no one would think I was weak or that I wasn't in control.
For the first 25 years of my life, I existed in a prison. A prison of an alternate reality. A coping mechanism that led to Munchausen Syndrome and constant lying as a way to deal with anxiety and low self-esteem.
Hi-beam moments. We encounter them on the road. Other drivers. Blinding us. How do you react? In anger? Or with grace?
