Hey, my name’s Tina.
“E.T.” (lol) Yeah, that’s about right. The full word behind my head, however, is “Nest.” God calls us out of our “nests” (or our comfort zones), so this bird is learning to Fly! She’ll get there! She will!
I also have a Poetry Blog Here.
Until January of 2018 my husband and I ran a small ceramics business that provided pet urns to a local family run pet crematorium. Due to worsening health problems, however, we were forced to let our business go. Both my husband and I are living with chronic autoimmune illnesses. Andrew has Fibromyalgia, and I have Hashimoto’s Disease.
If you’re interested in knowing more, I’ve shared some of my thoughts and feelings at the link above. We’re not sure where God will lead us, but we know in our hearts that He has this covered too.
We have no children of our own, but we do have two beautiful kitties that we think are the “cat’s pajamas.” (I couldn’t resist.)
Andrew refers to our two girls as “Kitty-pups” because he says they’re part dog. (Haha)
We adopted both of our girls from a local Cat/Kitten rescue after realizing that Andrew was no longer allergic to cats. (Yipee!)
Both of these sweeties have such different, and amusing personalities, so there is never a dull moment.
That’s Jessie in the photo above, doing what we call “Super-Cating.” Why she flys upsidedown, we don’t know. So your guess is as good as any. She’s a little quirky like myself, and Noisy (Let me tell ya…) Of course we adore her despite being—on occasion–so noisy. Sheya has her own Sweetness too.
As for my writing, I write from a Christian perspective. I share what’s on my heart, which nearly always is the thing that God has been showing me. Nevertheless, don’t blame Him for my grammatical errors, punctuation, sentence structure or spelling. I’m working on all of that, as He works on me.
What you’ll find on my blog:
- True stories with an encouraging message
- Fun facts
- Some fiction (Not my passion, but I may throw a bit into the mix)
- Anything which speaks volumes of hope and truth
- And metaphor…lots and lots of metaphor!
I became a follower of Jesus while I was dating the sweet man that God has given me. Having met at the mall, we both like to say: “You can get anything at the mall.” (Hardy har)
All of that being said, It’s truly not about us. It’s about the amazing God that we live to serve.
So, that’s who we are. We’re God’s Kids
“At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.” –Matthew 18:1-5
