I happen to like my sassy pants.

My hair dresser keeps begging me to cut my hair short again.  (It’s currently shoulder blade length and spends 99% of the time in a bun or pony).  When it’s short, she always finishes styling my hair and then hands me the mirror as she says “sassssssy!!!!”

Apparently, sassy looks good on me.

I happen to LIKE my sassy pants. I always have.

When I was four, my mom dressed me in pastel Wrangler jeans with tiny flowers on them. I wish I could find a photo of me in them because, in my mind, THOSE are my sassy pants.

(Yes… sassy pants. They go with bossy britches, yoga pants, and big girl pant(i.e.)s. I told you I should have named this series “something about pants.”)

Whether I call it sassy or snarky or sarcastic, it all boils down to the same thing.

i heart sassy pants

I write with attitude. I write down the inner dialog that is (in polite company) rarely spoken aloud.  I write it in a way that is (I hope) funny and not hurtful.

If anyone ever invents a sarcasm font, I’ll be standing in line to buy it.  There are only so many times I can drop LOL and winky faces 😉 into text before the thing becomes unreadable.  (I just hope the sarcasm font comes with an unlimited use license because otherwise I’ll need to go back to work to pay for the thing.)

As I took a good hard look at what I’ve written over the past 28 months on this blog, I had a serious question to ask that I just couldn’t ignore.

is God ok with snark

Is God ok with Sassy?

(Yes, I went there. After the whole debacle with the Jesus cookies at Christmas and the Easter cross I entombed in a ChicFilA box this should come as no surprise.)

Just asking the question was enough to scare me. What if God wasn’t OK with my brand of sassy? It kind of freaked me out.

I want my blog to make things a little better.  Whether it’s a post that makes you smile, makes you feel a little better knowing you aren’t alone in a struggle, inspires you, draws you closer to God, or just helps you appreciate life a little more… I want each post to make things a little better for whoever reads them.

Does sassy fit? Is there any possible way that being sassy makes things better?

I sat with that question unanswered for weeks.

I just didn’t know.

As I post this, I’m still searching for answers. I’d love your thoughts on the subject.

I have a passion for encouraging weary worn out mothers to find joy in everyday motherhood and peace in unlikely places. I have two elementary school boys, one nerdy husband, and two cats. I have a strange fascination for bad puns, the color pink, socks, and books. I worry about running out of toilet paper, wine, and chocolate.. I serve an amazing God. I live an ordinary life filled with wonder.
