New Hope for a New Day. . .
Samuel was a sleeping boy. Yet, the Lord called to him by name. You were sleeping. You maybe weren’t lying down or having your eyes closed, but you were asleep, Slumber of Soul.
At the end of the day when the sun decides to go away and cradle itself on the horizon
The moon arises and this is of no surprise, yet it takes the breath away.
God is like both the sun & the moon—He isn’t going anywhere.
He is committed to you through thick &
“Sow a thought, reap an act. Sow an act, reap a habit. Sow a habit, reap a destiny.”
All of life is like being a farmer. We sow, we water, we cultivate, we harvest. The reward is yours and the magnitude of it depending on the type of seed you sow, care you take, love you bring (which is just the right fertilizer) determines the harvest you reap.
Put your love on display—
People everywhere are bleeding on the inside and not saying anything.
People everywhere are empty within.
People all around us have
Unconventional and Scandalous Love. . .
There will always be more people who speak something wrong with you than those who cheer you on in something right. But we don’t live for the applaud OF others. We live to applaud others, notice them for all the wonderful and potential or possibility locked inside of them.
Celebrating others is the essence of the Love sent from above. It’s not our job to fix people, at least it’s not mine. It’s my job to love others and champion all the great within them, healing,
Last night I had the most hysterical conversation with my youngest child as he tries to decide what decade I was born. Once we had it all sorted out he was quite surprised and informed we that the Toy Story movies weren’t even made yet when I was born!
He is in the early middle childhood years and it’s so fun to talk with him. How he got a large vocabulary and mind he has blows me away. It’s fun to watch their cognition change and develop with age. The complexity
He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Who is he to lack consideration to provide for you?
God never takes a day off from caring about you. He never grows weary or tired. He is always up for traveling with you down that extra mile!
Oh Ancient of Days! The Lord says to the souls of men,
“Graze on my hills, rest in my valleys. Drink deep my sweet nectar as the bee upon the flower. Hold tight to my embrace. I Am Grace. I Am the foliage that shades your face.
How does it feel to be unashamedly yourself?
Pure and true just you; every single day? Everything you do, everything you say glory kissed and heaven made.
This is the way it should be—
There’s something gorgeous and mysterious when we give in to the unbridled devotion of Heaven. There is a Creator who savors your company. Open up and receive…
Receiving is active. Receiving is good. But receiving can also be uncomfortable.
When I was in the fifth grade I had a reoccurring dream. It was powerful and rich and vivid. It was exquisite
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
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.

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
When loves walks in you can feel it…
Unfortunately only women will able to relate to this, but if you’ve ever been pregnant you know what I mean. Once the baby in gestation gets to around the 16 weeks you may begin to feel the baby move. As the baby grows the feelings get stronger and you can literally discern the shape of the baby. My oldest had her toes wrapped around my ribs for the entire third trimester and I could caress the heel of her foot quite discernibly. I
