The joy of unmet expectations

The joy of unmet expectations

for Aaron…

When I was newly engaged, my fiancé sent me a gorgeous bouquet of red roses to my office. All my female coworkers oohed and aahed over them, but then the tone turned cynical as they warned me to enjoy the romance while it lasted. Every single one of them told me that they couldn’t remember the last time their husband sent them flowers and that the romance in their marriages had long ago died.

Kara’s Collection: Introverted Beauty

from an article originally posted October 6, 2014…

This weekend was a gift. God was gracious to give me the strength to speak in three different sessions. I’m so unbelievably thankful. For me, I felt so blessed to hear three beautiful testimonies from dear sisters. I asked my amazing Blythe if she would speak on our call as followers of Jesus to build community. I asked her to speak from the heart of an introvert.

Thirty years ago, I was driving down the road with my daddy. Even though I was a little girl, I was in the front seat because, well, that’s how we did things back then and there were no such things as boosters after the toddler years. It was a rare moment for this middle-of-five child to have with her daddy, all alone, and I remember my heart feeling like it was about to burst. Daddy was feeling good, too. I didn’t understand why at the time, but it was a good season for him—he was a pilot in the Air Force, a squadron commander at his last flying assignment, and stationed at the base where he and Mamma had spent some super fun times as newlyweds. It was a sweet couple of years for him and I could sense it.

Thank you, friends!

Thank you, friends!

Dearest friends,

It is with the humblest of hearts that the entire Mundane Faithfulness team thanks you for your gracious, lavish donations you have generously contributed since our post explaining our financial situation. We weren’t prepared for the overwhelming emotions we would experience seeing the emails coming in one after another from PayPal notifying us of your gifts. Friends, we not only have enough funds to sustain this sacred space until we can finish posting Kara’s original blogs, we have enough funds to host the blog for quite a while after that! Reading the beautiful notes accompanying your donations was precious—thank you for your kind, life-giving words.

We need your help!

As the MF team has struggled to get into the 2018 groove (thank you, tummy bug, post-Christmas-letdown, and general anxiety from not measuring up to the self-imposed expectations I experience every time I get a letter from my kid’s preschool), we have come face to face with what we knew was inevitable: Mundane Faithfulness has run out of money (I originally typed fun out of money, which I wish were the case instead!).
