And I’d do it all again…

The other day I was rearranging things in our medicine cabinet when I came across the prescription for Promethazine. I picked up that prescription from the pharmacy exactly one year ago today. I was hopeful that it would solve all my problems but, alas, it did not. Through the day that I delivered Quincy, IContinue reading “And I’d do it all again…”

{Just shy of} a year later

It has been just shy of a year since I shared my heart on this platform, which is bizarre since I have always found comfort in writing. The truth is, the analytics that everyone always tells us to pay attention to can be disheartening. Blogging and social media has become a competition; not something toContinue reading “{Just shy of} a year later”

We’re all struggling

Hi, my name is Brently and I miss people😭⁣⁣I haven’t posted anything really in regards to COVID-19. Partially because it still doesn’t seem real. Partially because it’s affected me more than I care to admit. ⁣⁣The reality is, this hurts. I’m an extrovert, an enneagram 2, and I feel called to serve others. Dustin oftenContinue reading “We’re all struggling”

Still.

I’ve held on to this for a week now… ⁣ ⁣ “The Lord will fight for you, and you must be quiet.” Existed 14:14 ⁣ ⁣ “Now, therefore, present yourselves and see this great thing that the Lord will do before your eyes.” 1 Samuel 12:16 ⁣ ⁣ “To seek to lead a quiet life,Continue reading “Still.”

Certainty in the uncertainty

This time of year is hard for many of us. This will be the first year we go through the holidays without my Mawmaw and my heart has felt broken more than I care to admit. ⁣ ⁣ Just this morning, I woke up from a dream so real with her, and I felt theContinue reading “Certainty in the uncertainty”

Make it to church

*I originally posted this on Facebook/Instagram but I thought maybe you needed to hear this, too! This is pretty much how we spent most of our weekend. Warren had a tummy bug Friday and spent yesterday recovering. This is also the one weekend Dustin was out of town. If I’m being honest, this weekend exhaustedContinue reading “Make it to church”

The Secrets of My Heart

It has been a long time since I shared my thoughts with this blog. And it is an even rarer occurrence that I share my poetry with other eyes, let alone with a public forum. Usually, that is because I’m hyper critical of my own work and almost never consider my work “finished.” But thisContinue reading “The Secrets of My Heart”

Three years later…

Just under a year ago, I made a post about finding a safe place in the church. The funny thing is, I wrote that piece in a time of reflection. Yet here I am today and not much has changed… This picture is blurry. This picture is old. This picture shows two little babies whoContinue reading “Three years later…”

Girl, stop “washing your face”

This is going to be a very unpopular opinion, and I’m okay with that…⁣ I was there. I read the book and I bought into it. ⁣ I fell prey into believing that I am in control and that what others think of me should never matter. I believed the lie that I should beContinue reading “Girl, stop “washing your face””
