Isn’t it funny how life can keep us from living? We get so wrapped up in everyday life we forget to really live.
Or maybe we don’t actually forget, but simply find time is the harsh judge who forces us to choose one or the other. And so, like obedient little bees, we work. We do what we must, what the rest of society demands of us. We hover around the flowers, collect pollen, but never take the time to enjoy those flowers; we are utterly blind to their beauty. (more…)
I think this would probably be a good time to introduce myself.
Hey, I’m Halee (yep, that’s me over on the side). If we’re going to be friends, there are a few things you should probably know about me…
1. I love coffee. A lot. It greatly enhances the quality of my life. Plus, it makes me smile and do a little happy dance (which looks suspiciously like the Charlie Brown dance).
2. I truly care about people. I absolutely love giving advice to teens who email us at Real Teen Faith. I consider it an honor and a privilege to be a part of someone’s life, if only for a moment.
3. I have opinions. Like, dark chocolate is way better than milk chocolate. White walls are a tragedy. And Jimmy Stewart was the best actor of all time.
4. I name inanimate objects. My Nissan Versa is named Luna, my keyboard is Selah, and my DSLR camera is Orli. The elevators at the end of my hall are Elmer and Homer. I guess I figure if I name things, they’re more likely to be nice to me, or maybe it’s just my way of showing appreciation. Who knows? If nothing else, it makes me smile.
Those are just some tidbits about me and my quirky, compassionate, and creative self. Now that you know a little about me, I’d love to hear about you!
