Writing prompt: fire

Here’s the latest 500 word write: he 100 year old brick house stood connected to a huge lot on the famous corner of Mack and Burns in Detroit. We purchased the abandoned house for $10,000 and it was completely remodeled. We were given beautiful oak kitchen cabinets from a family up north who was redoing their kitchen in white. When my husband wasn’t working 100 hours a week in the hospital as a re...

the cardiologist

I am taking a writing class and I really love it. The prompt this past week was: breakfast. Here’s where breakfast took me….. funny how that happens. Feel free to use this prompt and write a 500 word or less post to join me.. (and yours can actually be about breakfast! haha) He came into the world in the middle of a sweltering Michigan summer and the hospital air conditioning gave a we...

the lost remote and cord

For most of Bentley’s life his access to technology has been a computer laptop or an iPad. Both of these items are easy to put on a shelf or put a lock code on to prohibit his free range use. When we moved to this house we were given a television and would sometimes find Bentley up in the night watching his favorite show on Netflix while eating some variation of food he had made in the kitch...

on lent…

I am reading a devotional book for Lent this year and the first few days it focuses on understanding why we give something up for Lent, including ways to decide what the thing might be… I am reminded of what it says in Joel to “rend my heart and not my garments.” I was at the gym the other day and I immediately began making a plan to rend my garments/my body…. and as I was ...

the longing for connection

Hey all- I wrote a post on my blog. I’m just gonna link it this time- I don’t have the patience to upload all the photos again. I am learning where my writing lacks, the photography speaks and vice versa. http://adriennelynne.blogspot.com/2017/02/the-longing-for-connection.html

The life of Bentley

I decided to make a facebook page called the life of Bentley. The purpose of the page is to share stories of Bentley and share podcasts and articles and videos as they relate to Down syndrome. I don’t think you have to be my friend on fb to follow this page- if you do – then let me know and I’ll fix it. I wanted a space to share our journey that was separate than my page. So feel...

when community crumbles

Yesterday Eric preached on what it means to belong to The Village. Community is the essence of Christianity- it’s the expression, the experience, the joy, the pain, and the presence of God. Community allows us to draw closer to the heart of God. It allows us to care for one another. It allows us to disagree and push one another. It is essential. The problem with community is that it asks us ...

a hierarchy of needs and thoughts from rod’s sermon

I’ve been thinking about this idea of service and the idea of sin. Philippians 2 is a high calling. Specifically, ” if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3...

what i mourn

I was talking recently with Eric and was referring to a few blogs I had written recently… but he mentioned he hadn’t read them even though I post them on facebook… then he encouraged me to post them here. If you’re on facebook and you see my blog- I might duplicate stuff over here… hope that’s ok 🙂 Also, The Village is still an intimidating place for me… w...

School

Hey all- would some of you mind sharing some elementary schools you recommend or would not recommend for me… trying to do some research from Detroit…. I think we will be living near the mcculley’s – but that isn’t for sure – and I really don’t mind driving if it’s a good school.

A Blog Based Off of Rod’s Sermon

David snagged a book from his parent’s house- and when we arrived in Detroit I snagged it and started reading it. Anyone who knows me well knows that I do one thing particularly well… and that thing is to cry. I cry. If you’re crying and I am connected to your story- I’m gonna cry. However, I generally don’t cry when I read books- I feel deeply inside, but that feelin...
