The Anatomy of a Snow Day in the South

by Edie Wadsworth on January 30, 2014

snowday1

Yesterday morning I woke up to this.  Did I just wake up in Ireland or some such? Everywhere I looked yesterday morning was a sight for sore eyes. Have we been whisked away to Narnia?  Are we in heaven?  Is C.S. Lewis here somewhere smoking a pipe? It’s the only day of the year that […]

YOUR TURN!

by Edie Wadsworth on January 28, 2014

january

There’s snow on the ground here this morning, but it probably won’t last the day.  The kids are home from school due to the “wintry mix” and we’re packing up all your goodies from the Instagram sale.  I’ve also  been planning and scheming behind the scenes on future content for the blog, so I’m hoping […]

Light It Up

My girls were scheduled to do a few clogging numbers yesterday at a car show in our small town.  Yes, you read that right.  Trust me.  When you live in the foothills of Appalachia and your town is named Bean Station, you’re bound to find yourself at a car show some  Sunday clog dancing.  I […]

My {UN} Word for the Year

by Edie Wadsworth on January 14, 2014

Every new year, I find myself  planning and scheming for a better liturgy to my days. Because before you know it, your days become your life.  And as a mom privileged enough to work from home, I get a pretty huge say in what goes on within these walls everyday.  And I don’t just want […]

How to Find God’s Will for Your Life

by Edie Wadsworth on January 6, 2014

How to Find God

Grand Christian movements will rise and fall. Grand campaigns will be mounted and grand coalitions assembled. But all together such coordinated efforts will never match the influence of untold numbers of followers of Christ living out their callings faithfully across the vastness and complexity of modern society. ~Os Guiness I’ve always been one to have […]

Best of 2013, the posts

by Edie Wadsworth on December 31, 2013

I don’t know about you, but I love a good New Year’s Eve at home with the kids.  We drag out the party hats, noise makers, the Scrabble game, our favorite tunes from the year, a big ole batch of chocolate fondue and party like it’s 1999.  Until about 10 pm, at which point, I […]

Best of 2013, the People

by Edie Wadsworth on December 30, 2013

newyear

I just got back from a 4 mile run.  Perhaps the hardest run of the year, because, well, there’s been no shortage of fudge around here.  And, despite my knack for spending hoards of time in my pj’s lately, I’m determined to finish the year strong, aka, READ, RUN, START a quilt.   The last […]

1. A good stroll down Memory Lane Okay.  So, my 25 year high school reunion is this weekend.  (Let’s go ahead and have a moment of silence.) My sister sent me some photos to commemorate the special event and I nearly fainted.  This is the only one I can show you and still retain any […]

Open Ended Life

by Edie Wadsworth on November 7, 2013

openendedlife

The Avett Brothers just released a new album, so I’m all twisted up in new melodies and lyrics— wrestling with what it means to live open, as a believer, as a mother and a woman, in this world which seems to have gone stark raving mad. Open-Ended Life?  Is is even possible?  Desirable?  Shouldn’t we protect […]

What I Learned in September

by Edie Wadsworth on September 27, 2013

1. I learned a new song by Patty Griffin. I’m a confessed Patty fan and somewhat ashamed of myself for just now learning the genius of the song, Mary, from her album Flaming Red It so inspired me in my mothering journey that I wrote about it. 2. I learned that decorating a room, together […]

Only Love

by Edie Wadsworth on September 13, 2013

onlylove

None of us escapes it.  We are a bruised and broken people, in desperate need of a rescue.  We are all plagued with sin, doubt, fear, greed, selfishness, addiction, evil, and most assuredly self-righteousness.  We are harsh and unkind and lacking in mercy.  Or we are weak, undisciplined, and lacking in courage.  But we are […]

Forever Young {13 and 21}

by Edie Wadsworth on September 10, 2013

13

I was pregnant with her during my last year of residency, which means, she learned early to be a fighter.  During the first year of her life, I adjusted to a new baby, a new marriage, a new job, and a new mortgage in a new town.  I worked weekend nights as an ER doctor […]

Cake and Karaoke

Okay, y’all. It was the best party ever.  I’ve got no lies to tell.  We were celebrating milestones;  Caiti turning 21 and Emme turning 13.  And would you believe me if I told you that there was not ONE decoration.  Not one.  Not even a single solitary “Happy Birthday” napkin. What we had was this—we […]

Around the House, the Gifts of the Morning

by Edie Wadsworth on September 4, 2013

DSC_1416

It happens every couple months, you know those mornings—where time almost stands still—and your eyes and heart are a little more open to the gifts that are strewn about all around you.  This morning was like that for me.  It started out with a 4:45 wake up alarm, except I woke up at 4:43, like […]
