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.

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.

the waiting game.

I am in multiple seasons of waiting right now, I just realized this morning, multiple circumstances in which I am waiting on something, patience being tested. One, I am waiting to get married. My fiancé and I got engaged on 9/5/13 and are happily anticipating our 5/30/14 wedding, but it’s been a long engagement…or at… Continue reading the waiting game.

in everything, give thanks.

God is a funny and miraculous guy. Yesterday, I posted a status to Facebook because I was having a rough morning and it said, “Open your eyes. God is trying to talk to you everywhere.” What made me realize it was I kept getting whiney on my drive to work about how bad the traffic… Continue reading in everything, give thanks.

all by myself.

One of the greatest things I ever learned was how to do things alone. Fellowship is amazing, and I'm so grateful for the friends and family I have that make up my wonderful support system and I absolutely love spending time with them, so don't get me wrong - it's just the ability to do… Continue reading all by myself.

nothing is too hard for You.

Sometimes, it's pretty easy to get defeated isn't it? That devil will use just about anything to get you to doubt God and His truth, even in the most subtle of ways. For instance, did you know that walking into work in the morning with a bad attitude and dreading the workload you have that… Continue reading nothing is too hard for You.

walking with purpose.

For a long time now, I've been asking God, "You know, what is my purpose? What should I be doing here?" It's frustrating, especially because I've spent so much time around people who are just really living out their callings and there I was, without a single clue as to what I was going to… Continue reading walking with purpose.

You know, something struck me the other day while I was talking to a friend. He was telling me about how tired he was and how exhausting it was to think about all of the things that this coming week would hold for him; and I'll be honest, just hearing about it made even ME tired...… Continue reading tired?

walk by faith.

Right now, I'm in a bit of a weird place. I feel like God has intentionally ripped every forseeable destination point out from underneath me. School? I'm not going. I don't know what I want to do with my life so I'm just going to patiently wait for something from God to point me in… Continue reading walk by faith.
