Red, White, and Black

I didn’t know what to write about today, yet here we are. Looking at my son as he sleeps in my arms, I realized the most important thing I could share with you. While everyone is on their path to find their happy and relative truth, I learned this. Before we gasped for air, we…

Finite

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…

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…

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….

Circle of Friends

A friend loves at all times…Proverbs 17:17, NKJV Sometimes I think about my inner circle, and I reminisce on how blessed I am. Not everyone can say that those closest to them can both invoke laughter and encourage spiritual growth. I have a confession to make though. I don’t always tell them how much I…

Here, Now, After

“Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.” James‬ ‭4:14‬ ‭NASB We seek and long for the quick fixes and instant gratification, and obtaining those things aren’t necessarily bad. It’s just that life is much more than…
