“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” ~Marcel Proust
When I see a beautiful garden I often think of all the work they went into planting it and keeping it weed free. People are much the same as a garden. Healthy, secure and strong relationships require much tenderness, love and care. People must be nurtured just like a garden.
Your heart is a garden to house your soul…just like a green house full of moisture and
Have you ever had heartburn?
It is caused from acid reflux. The acids from the stomach return into the esophagus and cause a burning sensation.
Or is heart burn a certain kind of zeal or passion? You burn from within with passion and conviction about a certain decision or belief? You are decided and the strength of your decision is undivided.
Imagine you are in a crowded room. The floor is hard to discern because so many feet cover it. But the room clears and you are the only one left and you
Can I be honest for a moment? Transparent?
I am perhaps one of the most private people you could ever encounter. It is a sheer act of God that I write. That I bear my soul with my pen, that I use the internet or profusely post on social media pages. Left to my own, I’d write for me alone (like I used to do)—just me and my journal keeping everything I write to myself with bits of it spilling out in personal notes I like to mail to
What an excellent day.
I hear it was Heaven made.
But what exactly does that mean to you?
A Heaven made day means something different to everyone, but here’s a glimpse into my heart and what stirs me deeply. For me…this is what it means.
I love the free expression my heart yields in His Presence. It is frequently found in my pen, but when I speak it is found there as well. Time spent meditating on God, reading, writing, praying—these things bring out the best in me.
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.
. . . Probably
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
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
God does things His own way…
Who could possibly know the mind and methods of God? He asked a man to build a boat without knowing what a boat was—there had never been a need for such a vessel. He asked a people to carry a box around the Middle East full His Presence, but they were not aloud to touch it—known as The Arc of the Covenant. He asked a young girl to birth a Savior, because of her purity she was selected, and because of
Only Mary walked the dusty road with her Lord. She carrried seeds of worth bearing great promise…
She was the only one who was there when the Angel of the Lord spoke such an unusual promise over her life. She felt the Seeds of Promise bloom in her womb and no one could understand her heart, her mind, her prayers, her roll and I guarantee she hadn’t a single word to explain any of it.
So she held it all within her heart.

The Kingdom of God can be like a fortune cookie.
God has imbedded into the depths of each one of our being a soul. Within our soul dwells His Spirit. Well—that’s His favorite place to reside anyway.
His greatest interest isn’t your bank balance. It isn’t your job title, accomplishments or status.
No…His greatest interest is you.
See—He sees it all. The good and the not so good in each one of us. He doesn’t make a big fuss. He knows you are made of just the right combination of raw materials to truly
