    Wait, what’s going on?

    Sorry for the lack of posting earlier. The month of February saw myself and Mister getting sick (flu-like) and then early March saw Munchkin getting sick (positive for flu-A) causing him to start Spring Break early, then the hot mess that is the Covid-19 pandemic happened. To be blunt and honest, I’m scared. I don’t know how this all will end, or when, but I am trying to rely on the fact that God knows how and when it will end.

    Let Go… Let God

    So I’ve heard this phrase a few times before in my life, but recently I saw it while scrolling through my news feed of a popular social networking site that rhymes with Space Look (;-). The picture can be seen┬áhere. What grabbed my attention this time was how simply the message was laid out. Let Go, Let God. It could be considered one of the fall back phrases that Christ followers tend to pull out when dealing with a difficult situation or an acquaintance has just poured out all of their grief and anguish about their impending divorce to you when all you asked was “How was your weekend?”. It’s…
