Anticipation

Made clear by the bags under all of our eyes on this windy Monday, we lost an hour of sleep this weekend. The prospect of “spring forward” brings with it great anticipation. Anticipating longer days, the feeling that summer is almost here, and hopefully warmer weather! But Saturday night, the anticipation was different. It was the anticipation of losing an…

Love in Action

Yesterday, Pastor Richie said “True love on display is in how you walk: Walk in love, Walk in life, Walk in wisdom.” He paralleled the act of Jesus washing the disciples’ feet to keys to a successful marriage. Pastor discussed this in detail and I encourage you to go back and watch the sermon! But what stood out to me was the over arching theme of…

Power in the Praise

As we begin our 40 days of focused prayer and fasting as a church body, I wanted today’s motivational moment to highlight the power of prayer in my own life. As a worship pastor, much of my prayer life is accompanied by worship songs. Sometimes they are songs that others have written, other times, they are songs that come from the depths of my heart, songs that are…

Still Growing!

13 days ago when Logan was born, I was so Intrigued by her feet. They are so tiny, so soft, so kissible! It is pretty amazing how much I love those little feet as anyone else’s feet totally gross me out! In this moment of awe- the nurse told me that our footprint, and fingerprint never change- they only grow. This fact was incredible to me. The design on Little Logan’s…

That Doesn’t Go There

When I was a little girl, my mom would tell me to clean my room. I would rush in my room and shove toys here and clothes there with no rhyme or reason to putting things where they actually belonged. My mom would walk in and look at me with an exhausted look and say, “Katie- these things do not go there, this room is not clean, let’s try again.” She would…

In the Eye of the Storm

As a relatively new resident of the gulf coast of Alabama, I was not positive on how to react to the incoming storm, Tropical Depression/Tropical Storm/Hurricane Nate… I did not even know what to call it, much less how to prepare for it! I had some friends telling me we should evacuate to ATL, I had some friends telling me nothing would happen, and I had some…

This is My Song

One of my favorite songs is Blessed Assurance. Particularly the lyrics, “This is my story, this is my song.” Another one of my favorite songs is Place of Freedom with the lyrics “I’m gonna sing my song, like I am unashamed.” This week I have been thinking on the power of these lyrics, of the importance of singing “my song.” Psalm…

Rush Hour

It seems to be the culture of Americans to constantly be in a rush. The drive thru line is more than 2 cars long…no way, & if we have to pull forward and wait for our food, that is just unacceptable! This Frozen Dinner has to be microwaved for 5 min then stirred and microwaved again…who has time for that?! That light has been red for 1 min…it must be…

Cut it Off

Over the weekend, my parents were down visiting and my mom said, “Be careful not to let your fingers start swelling or you wont be able to get your rings off.” I did not think much of it as my fingers had not been swollen so I did not take her warning very seriously. Then- last night I looked down to see my fingers had suddenly swollen a significant amount and…
