WELCOME

Make yourself comfortable and take a look around the site. There is a lot to see but be forewarned, if you look closely, I’m sure you will find a spelling error or two, or something out of place. It’s taken me awhile but I am learning to be ok with it. Living centered isn’t about perfection, it’s about focusing on what matters.

So grab your coffee (or tea if that's your jam). Take a deep breath and  
find a comfortable spot. 
One where you can be centered for a moment.

Centered Seconds

The Gift of Completion

We are already living eternally, but we have not yet seen God finish what He started. So we are daily living in the in-between, not experiencing the satisfaction of being complete, and until the day, whether He returns or calls us home, we must sit in that tension.

Centered Seconds

Work Hard, Play Hard

There is so much noise. Everywhere I turn, something is ringing in my ears demanding my attention, and I am exhausted. The tile saw in our bathroom is the loudest right now.
