“You are glowing.” “It’s so good to see that smile again.” “You just seem like a weight has been lifted off of you.” “I feel like I haven’t seen ‘Nora’ in three years.” “I feel like I got my wife back.” The last two weeks, these are just some of the phrases those closest to… Continue reading Changes
The Light is Coming
The Winter Solstice is quickly approaching. On December 21, 2021 the sun will be the furthest away from us here in the Northern Hemisphere and we will have the shortest amount of sunlight. Other people refer to it as “the darkest day of the year.” I sat in a doctors office a few weeks ago… Continue reading The Light is Coming
Well, hello again.
Sorry. It's been a minute. I could fumble through excuses, life being busy, work stress, yada, yada, but let's just start fresh. Hi, I'm Nora. Let's catch up. There is much to share with you all, but let's just start here: We met up with our MS Running Team, Run a Myelin My Shoes, and… Continue reading Well, hello again.
Lost in Worship
As I was scrolling through Instastories last night, I stopped on this photo my church posted of someone worshiping. My heart swelled and I teared up as I saw this person, lost in worship. Then it hit me. Dude. That’s me. I’m not used to my blonde highlights or seeing myself from that angle. It’s… Continue reading Lost in Worship
April 5, 2020
I wrote these words on my Facebook page a year ago today, almost a month into the pandemic. Yesterday, I hugged my fully vaccinated sister for the first time in over a year. I hugged my nieces and nephews. We celebrated Easter and things felt more normal than they had felt in a long time.… Continue reading April 5, 2020
This tree in the parking lot of Kroger took my breath away today. I looked like a weirdo taking 1000 pics. I've struggled with how to put this story into words. If you grew up in a house like mine, you learned never to talk about good news because bad news was usually just around… Continue reading Miracle.
I love people. I believe there is still good in this world. I am crazy in-love with Jesus. I want to spend my days helping people, loving people (ALL people), giving to people, and pointing people to Jesus. I want to reach the end of my life, having shared in the sufferings of Christ and… Continue reading Thoughts.
COVID Chronicles-Day 10
What a difference a day makes. Today has been amazing. Let’s start there and take a second to celebrate that. I even ran a socially distanced 5K with my husband. We ran 1 mile loops so we could be close to home Incase we needed to bail early. It was not the 10K or the… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 10
Let’s cut ourselves some slack.
It’s been a year, am I right? For all of us. I think once this is alllllllllll over (LORD, Jesus... please let there be an end to all this!) we won’t soon forget struggles of 2020. For me, this year began with such fresh hope. 2019 kicked my butt. I remember texting my dear friend… Continue reading Let’s cut ourselves some slack.
It’s going to be okay.
I’m not going to lie. The last two days have been rough. Reality of our new normal setting in. I haven’t stepped foot in any kind of store or restaurant in over a week and I likely won’t be allowed to for a very long time. My daughter just found out she will be out… Continue reading It’s going to be okay.
