what i loved & where i’ve been: divorce, birth control & dealing with stress

What I loved…

The one thing Christians should stop saying: This was going around the ‘nets this week, and it caught my eye simply by reading the title.  I’ve spent all of my life in and out of different churches, surrounded by all kinds of christians…and yet, no matter how different they may have been, one thing was generally the same.  They spoke a different language than everybody else, widely known to most as “Christian-ese.”  I don’t blame them and I certainly can’t  judge, for I’m guilty of throwing around my own version of this foreign language at times as well.  But, over the last year as my faith has been challenged, this is one area I’ve been a whole lot more aware of.  Anyway.  We don’t need to make a blog post about it.  And while Jimmy & I had own little debate over this article, I still wanted to share it because it’s a good start to a worthy conversation.

Kids Room Makeover Roundup:  We’ve now been in this house coming up on 2 years, and for whatever reason about 3 months after moving in, I stopped decorating.  I wish I could say it’s because I was done, but the truth is, I am so so so far from it, and it’s driving me ba.na.na’s.  Emily Henderson is one of my most favorite decorators, and these kids rooms she shared this week are definitely giving me a bit of a bug to get back to business.  Soon.  Soon….

Divorce Court:  Marriage is tough.  And I’m sure I’m not the first to tell you, or the first to admit it.  But, I wonder if we find it so extra hard sometimes because we are looking for something out of it that God never intended for us experience.  Take a read, and a listen if you have the time… I’d love to hear what you think.

Things your doctor may not have told you about your birth control:  This just straight up shocked me.  I mean, really???  Is nothing safe anymore?  Then again, I have to admit…I value my sanity WAY more than I value my health (don’t quote me, I’m sometimes dramatic), so maybe the risk is worth it?
