Silence

On Sunday I was serving at church at the media station.  I don’t mind doing it but sometimes it can be stressful.  It’s also not the most social position to be in.  This particular Sunday I found it really difficult for some reason.  I realized part way through it was because I was already quite stressed.

I came home and I wanted to blog about what was going on in my life but I really can’t.  It’s hard for me because I try to be really transparent on my blog.  It is an outlet for me to process stuff.  Now there are things preventing me from speaking publically.  It sucks and it’s hard.

So instead of writing a blog I decided to clean my apartment on Sunday.  Lately exercise has also become a stress relief but I was too tired and worn down to run.  I know, it is not healthy to avoid stuff but hey, at least I did something productive – and I felt better.

Resurrection Sunday

I have been listening to Rob Bell lately on my runs. He has given me a lot to think about and I plan to post on some of those things later. In the meantime, I have to say this is my favourite version of the resurrection story. The video was just released last night.

Bad Friday


This past week I have had the vague feeling that something is wrong. It’s one of those times when I am pretty sure that God is doing something in my life, that He wants to move me. I am just not sure where…


Today is good Friday. At our church we refer to it as bad Friday. Today the weather is pretty yucky. There is rain, hail, and wind. I managed to go for a run today. It was cold and miserable. I got hailed on. Yeah, it wasn’t a great experience.


But what I do know, is that God is good. This week I had the privilege to visit with my friend and her 5 day old baby. She is beautiful. I don’t care what anybody says she smiles. And today another friend asked me to take care of her baby while she was doing some things at church. What a blessing. Another miracle.


I don’t know what God is doing but I know He is good. And even though the weather was horrible today I was able to increase my running interval. I half wonder if the cold weather helped.
