One of my favorite things about Jesus is His attention to detail. I love animals so much because it amazes me how God made so many different kinds, and yet still managed to give each individual one has its own personality and preferences too. Whoa!! I also love plants and flowers because each one is … Continue reading love that listens
So, I've been having a similar conversation with a lot of my buds. A lot of them are in difficult seasons, seasons marked by loss or discouragement or painful-but-necessary rummaging through previously unpacked emotional baggage. And seeing as my heart has been carrying around sadness like a heavily-laden, undetachable backpack for awhile now, I've started … Continue reading the delight of the weak
Lately, life has been a lil less than spectacular. I've been working six to seven days each week and barely sleeping because my air conditioning was out for over three weeks.

My very being is frantic, my brain incapable of turning off the worry and fear that reside in (what used to be) even the most peaceful of corners. It's … Continue reading now and forevermore
So, I'm starting to learn to admit that I'm a hopeless romantic. I've always been "above" it... I mean, really, who needs rom coms or cheesy love songs? Not me. Never me. Except my heart melts at the thought of getting flowers... at someone knowing me enough to know exactly which concoction of blooms makes … Continue reading enthralled
