I adore my father. I just told him today that he is a Croatian stud. If anyone has great DNA, it’s him. Timeless, and can I please have his skin tone? The man has fantastic skin. Anyway, he is also extremely kind hearted and gentle, yet a loyal defender. I brag about his genetics, but the inside of a man is always far more attractive than anything external. For all of humanity this is true.
Chivalry has never offended me,
it refreshes me.

REST in the Arms of the Almighty.
At the end of the day you can rest when you know you’ve given your best and can trust God with the particulars of world order and personal progress and provision. Learn to say no to some things so you can say yes to others. There are demands for our time and attention everywhere. Be intentional about rest!
EXERCISE your freedom to choose to be kind, generous, and willing to discipline yourself in right living. Take up hobbies that refresh your soul. Do charitable work
A writer is always writing, and sometimes—we use a pen.
I’ve been a writer my whole life. I just didn’t always know it. I am an observer of souls. My heart the cradle that holds it all in.
I’ve held it all in my entire life. Literally. I am very friendly, but at the same time enormously shy. I am one who always holds back, especially when my emotions are high. I am a chronic and habitual hold back sort of person. It is easy and it is awful all
I know what I have in you…
I know what I have with God.
You are so good to me, so gentle, so faithful, so kind.
You bless my soul and you comfort my heart.
Nobody knows me like you.
Nobody knows what I endure or what keeps my heart preoccupied.
Nobody knows what inspires my dreams.
You alone are God and like you there is none other.
My heart is betrothed to heaven.
You are my Sanctuary.
You are my Riverbed.
You are Golden and Bright.
You ignite my passions and
Tonight I ran into the market for just a couple items. It’s was late, the store would be closing, I only had about ten minutes…
I was able to fetch the items I needed, all two, and head to the registers. The store, which is usually quite busy during the day, was slow and lacking traffic because of the time of day it was. I moved in and out of the store quickly. As I climbed in my car I happened to look out the passenger side window, I happened to
Seeds have been sown in the garden of your heart. When God looks at you He sees a lush field of evergreen trees, vines with fruit clusters, hope divine and glorious blooms specifically designed to besot you.
God has plans for your life. Are you trusting him completely? Are you more reliant on common sense than His Power And Goodness?
God’s got you. Allow the luster and shine of His heart for you break through.
You have been earmarked for Glory.♥️
Someone is bragging on you…
Affirming words are my primary love language. Encouraging and sharing with people the positive I see in them is just a natural extension of who I am. It is a wonderful thing, edifying to the soul, to know you’ve played a role on some level in making another person feel wonderful…feel special…to know how much they matter, are cared for and not overlooked.
Verbal Edification and Encouragement Equals Empowerment.
Last night is a night I loved.
It was an ordinary Monday night, but I
Cut from a different cloth…
I love textiles. I am particular about tapestry and textures. I touch everything. I love all forms of design. When I buy a new journal I don’t just observe the outward appearance. I open it up and touch it. I feel the texture of the paper as I glide a stroke of my hand across the page. All of it- a part of the experience of writing for me.
My favorite garments aren’t always my most beautiful articles of clothing in my wardrobe, but those
Have you ever met someone who appears to do all things well, carried themselves well, just extremely polished? Excellence—everywhere excellent.
There is a regal quality to a person who carries themself well and does well. There is an added luster to their Shine when they handle themselves well in all of their well doing. It is human nature to compel toward pride and the pride of life. So when you come across one who does well and has room and reason to boast, but chooses the path of kindness and generosity
Yesterday I came across a photograph of my boys that was maybe from 7 years ago. Kids change so much so quickly, it’s beautiful and painful at the same time. Bitter sweet I guess you would call it. I just sat drinking in the picture. They were all huddled up close to one another, laughing, the baby on my 2nd oldest son’s shoulders—they were so happy. I am so grateful that their early and middle childhood years were happy years for them.
When my kids were really little we would sit on
