By Missy Eversole / September 16, 2020 /
,

As many of you know, within the first year of a loved one passing, certain holidays, anniversaries, or special days can trigger more additional grief or sorrow. September 16th is that day for me. Today would have been my dad’s 75th birthday. My brother, Troy, who shares the same birthday, would have been 43 years…

At the end of July, social media was in an uproar over schools across the country reopening. People who were so supportive of teachers when schools unexpectedly closed were now judging them for wanting to get back into the classroom. The judgment continued on to the parents for wanting to send their children back to…

Three Ways the Quarantine Prepared Me For My Son Leaving for College

One week. Just one week until we move our son into his dorm at Baylor University. Waco is a 14-hour drive or 2 1/2- 3 hours by flight (depending on where you fly into.) I will never forget the conversation that Grant and I had when we were touring the campus during Spring Break 2019.…

Trusting Jesus While Preparing to Move My Son to College in Another State

Three weeks from today, the dynamics in our house will change. There will be a seat empty at the kitchen table. There will be only one child to get out the door for school. The house will be a little quieter without that infectious laugh that I have heard throughout the years. And if I…

Finding Shelter Amid the Storms

By Missy Eversole / July 15, 2020 /

Throughout the past few years, I’ve never really liked how our front porch looked. In my mind, a front porch should look inviting and warm. Ours looked dark and cold. With a metal table and two chairs, I tried my best to spruce it up with decorative pillows, a bright wreath on the door, or…

May is officially here. This was supposed to be the month of celebrations and graduation parties. I knew this month would be hard, but I didn’t realize just how hard. Celebrations Will Happen!

It’s day 3,198 of our shelter-in-place. Ok, it’s not, but it feels like it! It’s been an emotional roller-coaster these last few days. The governor extended our shelter-in-place for another month.

Guess What? You Cannot Hide from God!

When the COVID-19 shelter-in-place hit, no one was more in shock than Bailey, our soon-to-be 14-year-old cocker spaniel. His routine days began with scrambled eggs for breakfast and watching my husband and boys leave for work and school. Bailey then proceeded to peacefully nap while keeping one eye on me as I worked around the…

“I surrender all, I surrender all. All to Thee, my blessed Savior, I surrender all.” As I was working in my office on Monday evening, I heard the sweet lyrics to this song being sung from Grant’s room. For the past three and a half years, this song has been sung by my son and…

A Cheerful Look Brings Joy to the Heart

By Missy Eversole / April 7, 2020 /
, , ,

It was in the middle of last week when I knew that I needed a significant change in attitude. Standing on our deck, dressed in oversized black sweats, a baggy t-shirt with an oversized gray cardigan and sunglasses to block out the sun; my look matched my attitude. Dull and gray. I didn’t even bother…
