I Lost My Job, But Might Find Myself
There's no sitting at a desk and counting down the seconds on the clock. With my security stripped, there's also an unfamiliar freedom. Maybe it will take losing who I thought I had to become to finally learn who I am--as much as you can know at age 33....

Knobby went away to work in The Cornfields for two weeks. The day after he left (Monday) we had an ice storm, followed by snow. I know that I went to Voice both weeks, so I suppose it started snowing again either Monday night or Tuesday. Essentially: The whole time saw snow all around. and HE is the one that likes snow. While Knobby was away, I started patching and painting the guest bedroom closet that we ripped out, and the little hallway coat closet. The guest closet is the same navy blue as in the hallway. it ties in the accent wall and drapes in there. The coat closet. Have to buy paint AND closet system pieces to install. Liking a more modern sconce, something like these:. HudsonValley Aberdeen in Polished Nickel. RobertAbbey Binary — I wish this came in an antique nickel and a single sconce instead of the double. maybe that makes it feel more modern:. THEN, I found this very different sconce:.

How long did you live with the original kitchen. We lived with the kitchen for a year and a half, through our wedding planning and actual wedding. We were very lucky that the last owners installed new appliances about a year and a half before we moved in, so we did inherit three new beautiful and functional stainless steel appliances which helped aid any limited short-term improvements and... Our original goals for the kitchen remodel focused mainly on practicalities: <$5k, add resale value to our house, improve functionality. As our first home, we understood it may not be our forever home but it very well could be. Therefore, we tried to ensure it not only met our tastes now, but our needs in the future as well as others’. We also knew that we wanted to get rid of the wall between the kitchen and dining room, leaving no header and no ledge on the floor. The consistent opening of the space would improve natural light and daily traffic flow throughout our house. Inspiration for the kitchen really came from everywhere: blogs, Ikea, pinterest, Houzz, real life kitchens in our friends’ and neighbors’ homes.
Inspired by Leigh McLeroy's book Treasured: Knowing God by the Things He Keeps , I'm asking: What tangible pieces of my spiritual history would I place carefully in my own cigar box for safekeeping. What stories have shaped my journey with this ever-faithful, treasure-keeping God. A black folder full of choral music. When I first auditioned for the Indiana Wesleyan University Chorale, I didn’t really care much about whether I got in. Being in a choir was a requirement for joining a ministry team, my real dream and priority. Might be fun, have to sign up anyway, here we go. Yet by the end of my college career, I would identify my time with the University Chorale as the most meaningful part of my college experience, the absolute last thing I ever would have given up.... It’s a staple of the chorale, so all the returning members dropped their folders and launched into the a cappella piece, clapping at the appropriate times and thundering on the risers as they stomped to the beat. On our first major trip, to the Gaithers’ “Praise Gathering,” I got yelled at by upperclassmen for “cutting the risers.
