Photo Friday: Kitty

Posted by Brenna Malmberg


Meet Kitty! She is the new addition to my house at home. A tiny little edition at that. My parents say she is a Jack Russel Terrier mix, and they got her from a friend. She is probably about five weeks old in this picture.

In this image, you can't tell that the grass is just about as tall as she is. When Cole and I visited her over the weekend, we came home to find her in the bath tub. She's so little she can't escape. . . .

Overblessified Thursday: The Woman at the Well

Posted by Brenna Malmberg


So before I get to what I am going to share with you tonight, I thought I would explain why Thursday is Overblessified day. The word started its origins back in Missippippi about four years ago. I was on mission trip with TFC, and God just kept loving on us. Wonderful food, a nice place to sleep and patience when things didn't always go as planned. We came up with the word overblessified to explain what God was doing for us. And the more we looked for God, the more and more we saw him. SO I thought I would dedicate this day on my blog to just being blessed. The topics might range from old thoughts to what God is teaching me today. So I hope you enjoy, and if nothing else, I get to write about it, probably my favorite way to think about things. . . .

Worldly Wednesday: Jet Lag

Posted by Brenna Malmberg


For all the fun traveling is, jet lag is one of the downsides. You have just come back from an exciting adventure to be tired and all thrown off of everybody's normal sleep pattern.

Jet lag is caused by air travel across multiple time zones, resulting in fatigue and insomnia. Luckily, I didn't suffer too much when I would come and go from the United States.

My friend Janel just returned from Italy, and I know her internal clock was a little confused on what part of the day it was. Your body actually has a little alarm clock inside called the hypothalamus. It turns on hunger, thirst and sleep, and it regulates body functions like temperature and blood pressure. To keep time, fibers in your optic nerve in your eyes send lightness and darkness readings. By doing this, it can tell if the time is nearer or furtherer than it usually is and triggers your body to react accordingly. . . .
