People are interesting, aren’t they? And complex. And funny. And lovely. And hurt. And full of contradictions. Joy and sorrow, sickness and health. Light and Darkness. What a strange race, we humans.

Internet, I have a confession. I don’t actually read that many books. I know it probably surprises you, since I love writing so much. But it’s the truth and I’m not proud of it. I am a champion book buyer. And I have every intention of finishing them at the time of purchase (or borrowing). […]
Alright, let’s take a break from the melodramatic blog entries, shall we? I am still processing everything I learned and saw in Africa. There are still days that are hard, and times when I don’t understand my own emotions. But I know that I learned a lot in a short period of time and God […]

Already it was deep summer on roadhouse roofs
Alright kids, it’s been awhile since I’ve done a Word Wednesday and since I skipped out on the Top Ten yesterday to go watch Zoolander in the park I figured I owe you one. This month marks one full year of writing Tuesday Top Tens and I’m having a hard time deciding if I want […]
Word Wednesday!! I haven’t done one of these in ages. Last night Michelle and I were joking that I needed to change my blog name to “Sarah’s Monday and Tuesday Blog” or something like that, but more witty. Truth be told I haven’t had a lot of time for reading the past few weeks. I […]
