in need

There’s a strong push (can I say “in all of us”) to cut all ties, to fly free, to be independent … to need nothing.

I refuse to credit monthly cycles or lack of sleep or circumstantial chaos with the downward facing dog day (this may sound like a yoga move, but it is actually a bonafide way to describe a dreadful day) I just had. This kind of day feels like a punch in the gut or spit in the face or that scene in the old version of Willy Wonka where he says, “Stop, don’t,” ever so un-convincingly, as Violet shoves that strange gum into her mouth.


Today was all those things and a cappuccino. Well, the cappuccino I’m having now because the intense workout didn’t shake everything out. Now that I think of it, the cappuccino is only lessening the blow by the tiniest of margins.

So, I’m going to make this short.

I need.

I don’t know why or how long I’ve been listening to lies, but here’s the skinny: I don’t have it all together. I don’t have all the answers. I get nervous. I fear. I am not confident all the time.

I need.

I’ll just leave it at that. Maybe someone else can relate.


another example of this day... overstuffed



let LOVE fly like CrAzY

One thought on “in need

  1. Oh Caroline…I am sorry about your “downward facing dog day”!!! I can relate and have to say that your integrity is refreshing!!! My faith is always encouraged by you! I need too! The one thing that’s really good to need is the LORD! “And my God will supply all your needs according to HIS riches in glory in Christ Jesus!” Phil. 4:19 But you know all this!! I’m praying for you…and so appreciate your prayers!
