Something in the Quiet and Pain

There’s something in the quiet stillness. Something in the rushing of the breeze. Fan blowing across carpet floor, clothes strewn everywhere to see. There’s something in the faltering of me. Something in the breaking of bone and marrow. Weakness creeping into every crevice, the darkness of a shadow. And yet there’s something here, something I…… Continue reading Something in the Quiet and Pain

Hope

Isn’t it interesting that the Christmas star appeared this year? Not last year, nor the year before, or even ten years ago. This year. The year of 2020. A year that has been filled with chaos, tension, and fear. It is not an accident that the Christmas star appeared this year for the first time…… Continue reading Hope

And God Sent A Cat

With everything that’s been going on, and all the craziness of the media, it’s natural that our minds and bodies are going to be more anxious, stressed, and tense. A few weeks ago, I was praying in my bed, and talking to God about that. I wasn’t really sure what specifically I was worrying about, it was…… Continue reading And God Sent A Cat

The Best Sugar Cookies Ever

Who doesn’t love sugar cookies? They’re sweet, soft, delicious and you can decorate them with icing and sprinkles! I’ve always loved my grandmother’s sugar cookies – I remember on holidays, my cousins and I would decorate Christmas trees, snowmen, and Easter eggs. Vanilla frosting would be mixed with green and red dye, and sprinkles of all colors…… Continue reading The Best Sugar Cookies Ever

Who am I?

Between the media, our culture and peer groups, and even family members, we are land blasted on every side by who and what we should be. There’s the crowd that’s constantly telling you to look better, dress nicer, lose more weight. Then you have the people who never think that your best is good enough,…… Continue reading Who am I?

Hot Chocolate Cake

Who doesn’t love chocolate? It’s sweet, comes in dozens of forms, and tastes amazing with pretty much anything! When my dad had his birthday earlier this week then, I knew exactly what I should make him: a hot chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream frosting. I found this yummy recipe through Pinterest, and all credit goes…… Continue reading Hot Chocolate Cake

Leaving the Noise

Sometimes I find myself in this “all or nothing” mentality. If I can’t do it all at once, then it doesn’t count. If I can’t finish it, then should I even start it? This can often transition to my perfectionism heaping mounds of rules and extra responsibility onto my faith-filled life and relationship with God.…… Continue reading Leaving the Noise

Victory

In the deep, dark expanse of space, a small group of rag-tag people works together to infiltrate a massive super-weapon. They are massively outnumbered, surrounded by all sides, and the odds of all of them getting out of there alive, are frankly, astronomically small. You could say the danger radar is going off the charts.…… Continue reading Victory

What if…

What if the sun turned orange? What if the grass was suddenly the sea? What if cotton candy grew on trees, what if money was free? So many questions, and an imagination of endless possibilities! In many cases, the “what if” questions can be thought-provoking and helpful. For the inventors, the engineers, pioneers of science,…… Continue reading What if…

Seen

So I just came back from Passion on Friday and one of the sessions was about letting God have ALL of you, even the parts that are ugly or broken or that you don’t want to show Him. Let Him have 100%, not 99.9%. So basically be seen by God. As we’re driving home from…… Continue reading Seen
