Well, it has been a minute, as the young people say. My birthday was amazing. Much to my surprise I looked exactly the same on the morning of my birthday as I did the night before. I thought maybe on your 40th you would wake up needing a face lift. As it turns out, not much has changed. Well except I just realized I … Read More Goodbye 1950 Alpha Drive
Hello Sarah K. Griffith Blog forum! To start off I would like to introduce myself… My name is Laycie, as you might have read about me in previous posts. Anywho! I would like to apologize in advance for all of you who are blog savvy and up-to-date on blog do’s and don’ts, because this girl is definitely not! I probably should have swung by … Read More Do I Still Turn 40 If My Friends Hijack My Blog?
I have spent most of this last week frustrated that people don’t do what I say. I mean they tell me their problems, I tell them the perfect solution and then they go and do something completely different and so not right. How is one with all the answers, like me, to interact with people who don’t do what I tell them to do? … Read More Why don’t people just do what I tell them to do?
Two weekends ago at church Doug preached such a profound message. This post started out as “last weekend at church…” and I was going to publish it last week but a funny thing happened. As soon as I started writing about what this post was about I could not stop doing what I was telling myself not to do in this post. Are you … Read More Why does my husband keep looking for houses in the desert?
Here is the thing. I am almost 40. I will be 40 in November. Like, 40….the BIG 4-0…over the hill…it’s all downhill from here….free time is spent checking my retirement fund……40. In the tumult this has caused my psyche there has been certain coping strategies that have arisen to ease the pain of the BIG 4-0. One is slightly more blonde highlights. Two is … Read More The Eye Bra
Dear Laycie, It is crazy that I have only known you for 12 weeks. I still remember the first time I heard your voice when Jesse opened the front door for you. I remember it so well because I was standing at my kitchen sink, washing dishes, and saw you drive up my driveway for the first time. I was struck with fear that … Read More Happy Birthday Laycie, an open letter.
Texas weather might need an intervention. 80 and sunny to 40 and rainy? Sounds like a cry for help to me. I just need to know if we are skipping fall. If we are, I’m fine with that. I just don’t want to haul all the fall stuff out if we are going straight to winter. You know who is to blame for the … Read More Dear Hobby Lobby, this is all your fault!
Lots of changes to the Sarah Griffith Blog! We will have an official launch soon, but for now I could not wait to write about the searing abdominal pain! This is probably shocking to you but I don’t deal with tension or waiting very well. I mean usually I am so even keeled and gentle. (Can I get an amen?!?!) In the last two … Read More Waiting/Tension causes me searing abdominal pain.
This is one of those exciting weeks when something that was born in our minds years ago is coming to fruition. Let me tell you the story. A few years ago, after having been saved by Jesus, Jesse and I packed up our life and went to Bible School at Ethnos 360 (Nee: New Tribes Bible Institute). We were no longer content with not … Read More Introducing: Sojourn House!
Hey listen, I am never one to brag about how great I am (I am exactly the kind to brag about how great I am), but I read a book that has 80 chapters. This is no small thing since the first book that I actually read for real was Harry Potter. Books prior to that were skimmed for book report purposes. So this … Read More Middlemarch
People just don’t listen when I tell them things. The night we landed, got settled and went to bed in Michigan I got the call letting me know that sweet Laycie was being induced due to preeclampsia and baby Kohen was on the way, eventhough the last thing I said to her before we went to the airport was, “Do not have that baby … Read More I specifically told you not to have the baby while I was at my family reunion.
The big news around here is that the Griffith’s have a new roommate. Meet Laycie. She reached out to my friend Ashley’s ministry, Selah Creek, because she needed a place to stay. Ashley send out the call for help. In a way that only God does things, after I saw Ashley’s post about it, the thought of Laycie moving in here would not leave … Read More We were fine until I had to move my stuff….
