Reflecting on 2017...and the goodness of God.

No automatic alt text available.
Dawn Camp Tolbert published an article on WordPress.

I've been meaning to write this post, reflecting a little on the year just past, but 2018 has had us hopping. My hubby's alma mater played not one, but two game...s on its quest for a national championship, which unfortunately didn't work out quite like we'd hoped. But before we're too far into 2018, I wanted to share three lessons I learned in 2017 and hopefully they'll help me stay on track and be more confident in this new year and beyond.

In John 5, Jesus was walking by a pool called Bethesda where lots of infirmed people gathered each day. They hoped to be able to reach healing waters and be rel...ieved from their suffering. On His way by, Jesus noticed a man who, given the rush to be the first in the waters, was hopeless. Unable to walk, the man had no one to help him into the water so, I imagine, he had watched for years as others found relief. [ 186 more words ]

Thoughts on reading from my daddy's bible.

I did my bible reading this morning from a bible that belonged to my daddy. Mother gave it to him on their 14th anniversary in the March before I turned 5. The ...pages have marks where he wanted to draw attention to a particular verse or passage. Sometimes there are notes that say "Start" and "End" that I imagine outline passages he taught in Sunday School. [ 369 more words ]

Enjoy today's post on baking disasters and the perfection of God's timing.

Dawn Camp Tolbert published an article on WordPress.

There's a somewhat infamous story in my family about the great Christmas cake disaster. Somewhere in the past few years, I've inherited the responsibility for c...ooking THE Christmas cake. It's a three-layer coconut cake that harkens back to the ones my mother and grandmother made as part of our family celebrations. My recipe can be a bit finicky, and one year, thanks to pouring rain on baking day and just total inexperience on my part, disaster struck. [ 248 more words ]

Reflecting on our eclipse moment and on the Glory of the Lord.

Dawn Camp Tolbert published an article on WordPress.

On Monday, my coworkers and I were like a lot of Americans. We gathered in our parking lot and, through borrowed eclipse glasses, caught glimpses of an amazing ...natural phenomenon. I'd seen the moments of totality unfolding over the Internet as we waited for our shining moment. We were, we knew, in only a 97% eclipse window. In my mind, I knew that wouldn't be terribly dark, and what we witnessed turned out to be a dusky moment. [ 162 more words ]

I get news alerts on my phone. A quick text message alerts me to breaking news, and throughout the day, I can click to read more or simply swipe to ignore it and go on with my life. The problem is,…

Last week, my Fitbit tells me, was my best week ever, walking-wise. Technically the Fitbit’s only been with me for about a year so “ever” might be a bit strong, but I topped perso…

I love my keyboard. We’ve been through a lot together — dissertation research, countless blog posts, hours and hours and hours of statistics homework. The other day, though, I noticed m…

I love office supplies. Pretty pens, colored post-it notes, sharpened pencils all set my heart fluttering. Don’t even get me started on fancy file folders — I’m not talking about …

Excited to be working on my next writing challenge with my good friend and The Pink Typewriter Project buddy Dana Fisher Thompson. Accountability partners are great for lots of things -- including writing. We're both working on our personal blogs, the PTWP, and novels of our own so we plan to have lots of updates to share along the way.

Ever have a theme that keeps coming up over and over again during the day? Well, for me, today, that theme has been authenticity. One of the leaders I follow on Twitter shared his conviction when h…

I wrote this blog post one year ago. Seems like a great prayer for today as well! "My prayer is that God will indeed cause Dawn to know her place, that He will remind me of who I am, and that I will remember I serve the Great I Am."

Enjoying some vacation writing time poolside in the shade. The first draft of book two of my McHenry stories is starting to take shape. Now I just need an agent to sign book one. 😉

In today's The Pink Typewriter Project blog, I discover a surprising way of looking at my goal list -- and maybe even myself.

I admit it. I can be really hard on myself. I set lots of goals -- sometimes pretty tough goals -- and then feel down in the dumps when I don't live up to every... one of them. The great irony is that I even do it when it comes to this blog, which of course is designed to promote positivity. [ 314 more words ]
