Becoming an Early Bird

Talk to me!    My name is Sharon Early. I'm a 26 year old Christian learning to live the abundant life with my sweet husband. In my spare time I watch the Big Bang Theory, read books, exercise, and surprise people with just how much I love Lord of the Rings and other apparently nerdy things. I am working on imperfect progress.

I made a big cheesy lasagna for Matthew tonight. Then I cleaned the whole house in a flash before I sat down with a big ol salad topped with feta cheese and MAPLE BALSAMIC!!!!! I could drink a bottle of that stuff.

After that we were sitting on the couch when Kevin started darting around the house meowing at the top of his lungs. He was walking all hunched over so I grabbed him and took him to his litter box. He barely made it inside in time before he had explosive diarrhea. You wanted to know that, right? I’m wondering if his stomach is upset because I changed his food. I got him some stuff for urinary tract health because he tends to get UTIs every so often.

We were just about to watch our new Jim Gaffigan DVD when our buddy Diego showed up with a box of Krispy Kreme donuts. It’s the little things.

Am I weird?

Has anyone else ever had a fit of laughing really hard, and after the high from laughing so much went away, you felt sad for no apparent reason?

boyswanna-be-her:

I used to be so afraid of looking at pictures of myself from the past.

"I was so pretty, why didn’t I realize it? I don’t look that way anymore."

"My weight looked so good on me, why didn’t I realize it? I don’t look that way anymore."

"I looked so young and nice, why…

Well dad gum.

"If I can encourage you with silly football analogies and my own real-life pain, I’m telling you straight up — stay. When you’re too weary and disillusioned to do anything else, keep staying. God is working out your faith. He’s moving in ways you can’t even dream of. He’s got a comeback plan (though He’s never truly behind). So do whatever it takes…Just don’t leave. Hang in there, you. Upsets are especially thrilling."

At least one of these is zero calories. 

Someday I’ll get control of my emotional eating, right?

I know life doesn’t necessarily get easier, but I just hope that one day I’ll learn to surf the waves a little better. 

I love Jim Gaffigan.

Highs and Lows

Before the weekend, my heart was bursting at the seams, overflowing with joy at the fullness of life…MY life. Excited to be a part of my best friend’s wedding and all of the events leading up to it. Fresh off of spending some quality time with my mom. Looking forward to our upcoming family vacation. Feeling good…like everything was and was going to be okay.

A brutal verbal attack from someone who claims to love me served as a bitter reminder not to hope so much, not to feel so good about myself, that vulnerability leads to suffering. I should have learned by now. I’m weary of tired apologies and empty promises. I’m weary of working hard to learn how to love myself only to be destroyed by those closest to me. I’m numb from broken dreams.

I’m allowing myself this. I’m allowing myself to put down the burden of feeling like I have to be positive on my blog to the point of pretending that life isn’t happening to me. Besides, every time I’ve been truly honest on here I’ve been met with the sweetest, most touching words of encouragement and support. Words that I wish I could hear from the people I interact with on a daily basis.

The cross. The cross. The cross.

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8-9

"Jesus said to Him, ‘I am the way, and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’" John 14:6

"But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed." Isaiah 53:5
