On My Mind


There's been lots of little random things on my mind lately.

I've been thinking lately that everywhere on social media people are selling on-line classes on how to grow your social media following. And each class is the real deal that will for sure work! And I just wonder, what if we took that drive and made classes like 'How to grow the Kingdom of God'. If us Christians shared the way these awesome social media marketers do I bet heaven would be a bit fuller.

Speaking of eternity, like WHY hasn't Jesus come? I'm so ready! But, I'm definitely not God and His timing is perfect. But I've been thinking lately about what I'm most looking forward to about heaven. Things like, no more politics because Jesus will be King, no more sickness, no more seeing my sweet nephew hang his head and cry every time we say bye, no more death, no more anything bad.

On a completely random note Dave and I watch the movie Patriot's Day about the Boston Marathon bombing. I cried buckets of tears through that movie and especially at the documentary at the end. I started searching for survivors on Instagram and came across this lady. She lost a leg and runs a 5 minute mile and is pretty much one of my new heroes.

Speaking of heroes, Amanda, who shares about running on Instagram is another hero. Her and her family lost their home in Harvey and never once has she complained. She says it's hard but she perseveres. She is also crazy fast and is training for the Olympics.

Once a month, at the beginning of the month, I take a social media break from Instagram and Facebook. And then I wonder why I have them in the first place but yet I enjoy them when I have them. It's a vicious cycle. Amanda, who blogs over at The Lady Okie, does this fast too and it's fun to text and share about our experiences with it.

My summer garden is coming to an end. It was so fun to grow and eat our own food. Let's be real, I threw some seeds down and God grew it. This year we had basil (8 plants total, also known as too much), thyme, oregano, rosemary, tomatoes, kale, swiss chard, okra and cucumbers. I felt like I learned a lot from my little garden. I don't think I'll plant as much next year but I'm hoping to get more produce from really tending to fewer plants. We will see. =)

I can always tell when someone is new to crossfit or running because they post every. single. workout on social media. #aintnobodygottimeforthat is all I gotta say. However, I do think it is neat to see people getting into fitness and I know its super exciting. Because, I once was that girl that posted all my workouts on-line. Why didn't anyone tell me how annoying that was?

Speaking of annoying MLM people are really getting extreme. I try to be polite but COME ON! I don't come at people like 'Hey! You should be a photographer. I make X amount of money each shoot and you could too! Would you like to quit your day job and take pictures?" I do love some products from MLM companies but if their sales people harass I'll never buy from them.

Speedy starts obedience school next week. I went to one school in town to see if she could pass level 1 and let's just say it did not got well and we will never go to school there. However, I did find another place and I'm looking forward to it. So far here is what we have taught Speedy: sit, stay, bang, roll over, wait, down, shake,  other hand shake, high five & dropping a ball. We also make her wait for her food and she has to wait to go through a main door until she is told to do so. She will get in her kennel without a fuss, which is super nice. She runs with us but is not good at heeling yet, which is really why I want to go to obedience school with her. I can't stand a dog that pulls when I'm walking or running them and Speedy is terrible at pulling! I will say after 2 miles on a run she quits pulling, so that is nice. The other day she ran 6.2 miles with me, which is pretty darn good for being a puppy.

Last thing on my mind - Did you know running your own business is incredibly exciting and terrifying at the same time?! I've realized I'm my own CEO, marketing manger, accountant, photographer, editor, admin and more. It's an incredible privilege and gift but also a big responsibility and I'm thankful for all of it.
