Unstuffing: Where the rubber meets the road

So you remember, or maybe you don't that I reviewed Unstuff a little while ago.  I convinced a couple other people to read it too, and then I convinced them to come over and talk about it.  Too my surprise, neither of these things were difficult.  I guess people actually like to hang out with one another and talk. 
I personally had to unstuff some things in order to be able to meet with them.  And here's the best part, it was worth it.  I was attending a bible study about an hour away which was not as fruitful as I desired.  I used to have a house that was so stuffed with junk that it was not a place for people to come and be.  You had to step over things, wonder about smells and were always a little suspect of the bathroom.  I'm glad that part of my life is less stuffy.  Because it means that it's less stressful for me to have people over.  I don't have to spend an entire week putting all my stuff away so that someone will have a place to sit down that isn't on top of something or having to maneuver through things. 
But I also learned that not every thing has to be perfect in order to have people over.  I don't have to worry about judgement from others, because God is sufficient.  And because God is sufficient, I can handle any judgment that does come down the pipe. 
I've been listening to Brandon Heath's song Your Love a lot today.  And I think it's because it finally struck me, that God's love is enough.  Here's the video so you can hear it for yourself...



Sorry if this post was a little discombobulated, my quiet time was busted today by the cable guys whose company I swore revenge on when they started drilling in my front yard at 8AM during my vacation.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
