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

Topics range from God, abstract, to personal matters.
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
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?
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
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 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…
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
Sitting By The Fire
The past couple of weeks, I’ve been going through a book called Grace for the Good Girl by Emily P. Freeman. As described in another book, Breaking Up With Perfect by Amy Carroll, there are two different types of perfectionists: “Some lovers of Perfect live with the Good Girl Syndrome. These women are rule followers by nature…… Continue reading Sitting By The Fire
The rainbow. God’s promise. “Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him, “Behold, I establish my covenant with you and your offspring after you, and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the livestock, and every beast of the earth with you, as many as came out of the…… Continue reading God’s Promise
