beautiful things.

I brought this big fella out of storage and into the nook where I do yoga a little bit ago. It's a shitty mat job (I did it myself years ago without the proper equipment - it's sad) but I love him. I called him 'the bone daddy' after Jack Skellington form The Nightmare Before… Continue reading beautiful things.

life is short, but you can’t rush healing. 

I stopped my cousin mid-sentence yesterday because she said something that totally took me back. She was telling me about her plans for next week, and she said she'd be doing something on the first of September. And that the first of September is next Friday. I interrupted her to ask "how are we already… Continue reading life is short, but you can’t rush healing.

on hypocrites and Jesus.

I was talking with someone lately about Christian things, and nothing makes me feel more like a freaking hypocrite than giving godly advice, even if it's good advice. This sucks because a lot of the problems I've had in my recent Christian history is with hypocrites. I've let so many people come into my life… Continue reading on hypocrites and Jesus.

beauty for ashes, when we’ve totally crashed and burned. 

To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the LORD has planted for his own glory. (Isaiah 61:3 NLT) I love tree pose and I love trees.… Continue reading beauty for ashes, when we’ve totally crashed and burned.

gaining weight and gaining an idol.

Someone told me a little while ago, “If you start making noise declaring God’s truth, the devil’s gonna come after you. Be ready for a fight.” She wasn’t offering it as a warning, so much as a heads up to make sure I’m covered in the armor of God before I go stepping out of… Continue reading gaining weight and gaining an idol.

some things I’ve learned about the devil.

The devil is not a nice guy. Not. At. All. And I'll tell the truth about something that some people might not like: The devil has a least 2 things in common with God. The first: he wants our souls for all of eternity. Like stated in Luke 22:31; "...behold, Satan demanded to have you."… Continue reading some things I’ve learned about the devil.

one day at at time.

Okay, I'll admit it. I've got more than a few bad habits. And one of them happens to be that I tend to worry about stuff that isn't happening yet. I get so caught up sometimes in what might or could be that I start missing what IS. And you know, sadly, I've done this… Continue reading one day at at time.

hit it again.

You know, one of the best sermons I ever heard was right at my home church and the thing I remember most about it was my pastor shouting, "HIT IT AGAIN." He showed this image of a Jewish man praying against the wall in Jerusalem to portray the idea of hitting a wall in prayer.… Continue reading hit it again.

locked out of heaven.

I'm very sorry, Bruno Mars. Somebody lied to you (and my money's on Satan). Her sex might seem like it's taking you to paradise, but believe me, it ain't lettin' you into heaven at all. See, it is written that the thief - aka: the devil - only comes to do three things: 1)steal, 2)kill,… Continue reading locked out of heaven.

12.21.12 and the doomsday preppers.

I understand this seems late, but I wanted to avoid all of the "end of the world" hype and attention that what turned out to be a very normal day was getting. Anyway, in light of everyone feeling like it was going to be the end of the world, because the Mayan's said it would… Continue reading 12.21.12 and the doomsday preppers.
