When the finite realizes its limitations…

Daily Prompt: Rush

I’m constantly on the go but today I chose to slow down. Looking around my living room and for the first time I take it all in. Did you know if you stare at a crumb long enough, your eyes will create that beautiful Bokeh effect that photographers use to focus on the subject while…

When Winter Breaks

“Welcome to Millennial Cove, Alaska’s number one place where young people can recharge emotionally and refuel spiritually.” That’s what the sign said, but Kathleen had her doubts. She had never seen so many tight, outdated looking folks in her life! Granted she was a fashion photographer/model for a major designer and wore the Louis Vuitton…

The Decision

Furiously she banged on the keys but to no avail. Annette crashed into that proverbial brick wall. All I need is 15 solid minutes is what the experts say. But who made them right? Daily she tried to keep the momentum going and sometimes she’d meet her goal while others…let’s just say her one-year-old could…

Into the Light

Not sure where to turn, Rebekah stood trembling beneath the dim light. She knew she had no reason to fear but it choked her anyway. Gage looked in her eyes and warmly said, “Mommy, it’s alright now. Don’t you feel them singing?” Immediately, the terror Rebekah felt was replaced by what she would later describe…

Red, white, and black

I didn’t know what to write about today but as a writer, it’s what I need to do. Sitting here looking at my son as he sleeps in my arms, I realize the most important thing I could ever share with you. While everyone is on their own path to find their happy and relative…

Waiting games

Today has been interesting. Constant baby squawking that tried to upend my theology. I usually get what I pray for—and I’m thankful! It gets tough sometimes and I feel like sulking in a corner, too. Being too emotional doesn’t fix a thing; it just keeps me from having the right perspective. Have you ever found…

Is Your Faith Alive?

This past week I’ve experienced just about every emotion known to man. I faced fear, discouragement, sadness, happiness, glee, you name it. Why? I was facing some things regarding my son’s health that I’ve never experienced before. Some would just chop that up to, “young/new mom jitters.” I won’t downplay that, yet I think it…

Conversations

It started with a conversation I had with myself. What do I want out of life? What is my life? What is life? He’s called me to be more than this but I had my reservations. But, why? As I kept prodding within myself to discover my problem, there was only one viable reason: I…

Moments in Time

It’s 3:50 AM EST when I began typing this post. I could, and probably should be asleep right now but it doesn’t seem to be what God wants of me right now. Instead, I sit here. No coffee or tea or fuzzy blankets. Just me, the crackle of the fireplace, my thoughts, and the Lord….
