Love is Not the Greatest

I’ve watched approximately seven Boy Meets World episodes in their entirety, though plenty of passing clips. I’ve blogged about this show in the past, including its spinoff, because my younger sister would watch it after school, and the strong friendship between Corey and Shawn always kept my eyes craning. Lately, life circumstances have again caused me to draw from the well of this TGIF sitcom. Deep into the series, Topanga’s parents get divorced, and it scares her into breaking up with long-time boyfriend, […]

My 3 Favorite Christmas Songs

I’m not blogging as much these days; believe me, I’ve noticed. I feel the words escaping me the longer I sit here, and I find myself eager to ditch my computer and let this blinking cursor flash all Christmas Day. Perhaps the new year will bring new inspiration for blogging, like old times. But for now, I can only offer you my three favorite Christmas songs. Maybe I’ll write about each one? I’m gonna wing this post and see what comes out. These three songs […]

When Hillsong United’s New Song “Hurts Like Hell”

Hillsong United released Empires last week, debuting at #5 on the Billboard 200. “Christian worship band” notwithstanding, it’s an impressive showing. Though Empires doesn’t resonate with me as much as last year’s Zion, it’s still a solid offering. If nothing else, Hillsong United keeps reinventing itself with every album. It’s crazy hearing the Hillsong United of today compared with Hillsong of the 90’s. Were they even called “United” back then? Hillsong United — indeed, worship music at large — has journeyed a long way since “Shout to the Lord.” There’s a song […]

Weekly Web Wanderings: Bieber Carpools & New Hillsong

It’s that special time of the week where I condense the very best of my world wide web wanderings into a single post. As always, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest for all my wonderful web wanderings as they occur throughout the week. Onward to the WWW! FUNNY James Corden. I feel like I post his stuff every week, but it’s just so good. Last week he played dodgeball with One Direction; this week, he does some carpool karaoke with Justin […]

My Soul Song

Sometimes your ink is dry. Sometimes the keystrokes won’t come. Sometimes your soul needs a break. Sometimes a song better translates your heart. Maybe sometimes the Holy Spirit likes to dance on different wavelengths.

My #RunningTo Road Trip Playlist

I spent 282 days on the road in a car without working speakers. Some might have called my predicament tragic. Many folks offered their disbelieving condolences over the course of 26,301 miles. But my speakerlessness had been nothing new. My Mitsy actually hasn’t had operable speakers since 2011. While initially tragic, my car’s thundering silence grew on me. Silence is awesome. You can talk to God, you can talk to yourself, and you can pontificate on all life’s mysteries while the road’s snaking […]

Weekly Web Wanderings: Email in REAL LIFE

It’s that special time of the week where I condense the very best of my world wide web wanderings into a single post. As always, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest for all my wonderful web wanderings as they occur throughout the week. Onward to the WWW! FUNNY Tripp & Tyler’s latest creation of perfection is “Email in Real Life.” My personal favorite is the “reply all” mishap, though the extended signature is pretty great too. It’s a sequel to their “Conference […]

APRIL FOOL’S AGAIN I was only […]
