Good Enough

All of my life, I've struggled feeling good enough. There have been times where I've been pretty confident and happy, felt pretty, skinny, good at something. But mostly...not good enough. And to be honest, I've felt okay lately. Not necessarily on top of things, but enough. Until yesterday. And I don't know exactly why or exactly when, or exactly what...but there it was again. Have you ever felt not good enough? Maybe it's that I'm in the process of putting together a book, and I'm unqualified. Or maybe that it's that I don't string my words together quite as beautifully…

Scripture Sunday: The Birth of Jesus

The Birth of Jesus 1At that time the Roman emperor, Augustus, decreed that a census should be taken throughout the Roman Empire.2(This was the first census taken when Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3All returned to their own ancestral towns to register for this census. 4And because Joseph was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, David’s ancient home. He traveled there from the village of Nazareth in Galilee. 5He took with him Mary, his fiancée, who was now obviously pregnant. 6And while they were there, the time came for her baby to be born. 7She gave birth…
