This is so gross. And embarrassing. And also very, very wrong. Dangerous, twisted theology.

“Penny in the air” is such a helpful metaphor. Thank you for taking the time to write some of your process Sarah. This is thoughtful and beautiful.

“To tamper with God’s design is to go to war with God himself.” Seems you should heed your own warning here, , and stop messing with God’s design and intention for women to be treated w/dignity as equal human beings. And yes, this includes our status in church and home.

I’ll take your virtual hug because you’re a real friend (and because you’re far away). It’s the ones from strangers that I’m not a big fan of.

7. “It’ll get easier” promises 8. “Thoughts and prayers” that aren’t followed by actions (start w/things like: flowers, casseroles, cookies, wine) 9. Virtual hugs 10. Book of Job references 11. Any statement containing the words “at least” What would you add?

Let me remind you what’s not needed when drowning in grief: 1. “Chin up” statements 2. “This is what helped me” antidotes 3. “Time will heal” cliches 4. Pat religious answers and cliches 5. Scripture quoted out of context 6. “Let me tell you about my own pain” stories

You have a lot of nerve Glenda. Alia, I’m so sorry you have to hear this kind of rubbish and that people don’t have the common manners to hold back the unsolicited advice, assuming they know more about your life than you do.

We still need to figure out how to pay the bills, sure, but perhaps a small respite from the stress is part of figuring out that solution. Who knows? Well, God knows. He knows and he cares. Today I’m praying for you who are also looking for a lifeline. May you feel seen.

...about making our rent payment have been answered with the gift of a paid for babysitter and date night from people we’ve only known 10 days. So maybe that’s what we *really* need. Maybe these are more intertwined than we think. In any case I feel seen. For that I’m thankful.

I admit that often my prayers center around need... and then are answered with things I don’t “need.” It’s as if God’s saying to me, “I’m not only familiar with your lack, I’m intimately acquainted with your desire and I care about both.” This week my prayers...

One of my favorite memories of my second son, Judah, was a prayer he gave after the Lindt Cafe terrorist attack in Sydney: “God, take that man’s hard heart and give him a soft one instead.” He was four.

Last time I traveled alone for work I took this when they dropped me off at the airport. It’s my favourite times four.

Australia’s is equally baffling: “How ya going?” Um, by foot? In my car? Oh, I mean, fine. And you?

I enjoyed summer pregnancies when it was easy to just wear sundresses with no waistbands!

I should have known better than to count on the polls since the taste of the 2016 USA election is still in my mouth... pollsters obviously have lost the ability to take a good pulse.

So disheartening. After all the “good on ya’s,” ’s acceptance speech was telling: Buy a house, get a spouse and two kids, and do anything it takes to enjoy your retirement. It’s exactly what Australia seems to be prioritizing—self serving, short term priorities.
