The High-Way (Guest Blog)

There’s something you should know about me.

 I’m kind of a nerd.

 Not quite a nerd of Steve Urkel magnitude, but a little bit of a nerd nonetheless.

I love inky pens, journals, and most office supplies in general. I treat books as old friends, totally dig résumé editing, and while I despise numbers, nothing gets me more excited than formatting a color-coded spreadsheet. Oh, and I listen to army cadence while working out.

 Wait. What?

Army cadence is awesome. Maybe it’s because I’m married to a U.S. Army Infantryman. Or maybe because the beat is the bomb diggity. Or maybe I’m just a nerd.

My beloved husband recently got done with a two-year duty of being a drill sergeant. During that time, I learned a lot of cadences. Here’s a little piece of one of my favorites: (Try to yell this in your head in a marching, rhythmic tone…)

“Just the other day I heard a drill sergeant saaaaayyyy… It’s my way or your way and your way’s the highway.”

Hmmm… It’s my way or your way and your way’s the highway. Think about that… While it’s a fun play on words, revamp the context a bit and this catchy phrase also has significant application in our walk as Christians…


Curious as to where I am going with this post? (Yeah, I was too while it was in the making…) Then pop on over to my dear friend Laurie’s blog to see how this army cadence has to do with our Christian walk. It will be worth it. I promise 🙂

Taking the High-Way Today,

“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” ~Isaiah 55:9
