7.6.2020 – Childlike Hope

Sometimes I feel like I have this kind of “childlike hope” that is somewhat hidden within me… And I want to hang onto it with everything I’ve got, in spite of all the reports of things happening around us.

God, I love when You set things right. 💖✨ Relationships… Attitudes… Hearts… Vision… Pathways… Memories… Journeys… Our whole lives… Think of a time when you realized… that something has somehow changed… “I was there, now I am here.

7.2.2020 – “God, wait —where are You? Have I flown off the trail at that sharp curve?”

There are going to be times we have to really press in… and we have to say, “be still, my soul“… …so that we can hear God’s heart and His voice above all the rest of the voices and the chatter in the airwaves, all the rest of these “GPS” type, navigational voices that are… Read More 7.2.2020 – “God, wait —where are You?

7.1.2020 – My Compass

I feel like I need some kind of “compass” that I keep constantly before me, perhaps right there around my neck so that I am always reminded to look to it—a constant reminder of the truth, a constant reminder of the way, a constant reminder of the direction I am going.

Goodness, it just hit me that we are halfway through this year. June has been quite an interesting month around planet earth. 🌎 My time at “34” is inching closer and closer to 35.

6.29.2020 – Walking into the Light of His Truth

Why do I write these every day? I still ponder this question sometimes. I still don’t really know how or why it has happened this way… All I know, is that God often leads me to write, openly and vulnerably… about the things I deal with in my own heart, and about our beautiful times… Read More 6.29.2020 – Walking into the Light of His Truth

6.28.2020 – “Come Close”

This morning as I was sitting here, I began to reflect on how I used to be so fearful of God, so uneasy around Him, and how I used to attempt to keep Him at “arms length” because I didn’t know that He was such a wonderful Heavenly Father—a wonderful Heavenly Father who delights in… Read More 6.28.2020 – “Come Close”

My husband and I are photographers, and over the last few years, we’ve been so privileged to do a lot of work for a local magazine where we get to visit different towns across the state, and we photograph different makers, and creators, and so many talented business owners across our beautiful state.

6.26.2020 – The Illusion of “How I feel.”

When I think of the word, “illusion” I think of “sight” mostly…. what I see. Like, what I am seeing with my physical eyes, how the situation seems to appear on the surface—I realize could be an “illusion” compared to what is really happening “under the surface” or in the unseen realm, which is more… Read More 6.26.2020 – The Illusion of “How I feel.”

6.25.2020 – Enduring the Hard Things

God has this way of somehow making certain things that we must endure —hard things, painful things, horrible things, “impossible things”….. bearable.

6.24.2020 – Just when I thought there wasn’t a doorway…

Left and right, I am seeing Jesus “make a way” when there “seemed to be no way”… How He surprises me sometimes with His heavenly solutions… things I wouldn’t have ever considered from my own mind. (You know, He thinks much bigger and broader than we do. 😊☀️) How I can forget that sometimes…. How… Read More 6.24.2020 – Just when I thought there wasn’t a doorway…

This morning I feel such a refreshed hope, a revived hope about some things going on in my life.

Have you ever had to tell your soul… “Be still, my soul…” Sometimes things don’t happen the way we’d expect, and fear and anxiety begin to creep in because we don’t like the looks of the situation… This morning I am remembering that no matter how things may seem, no matter where I am standing… Read More 6.22.2020 – A Way (when there seems to be no way)

I used to have panic attacks when I was alone at night time. Even as an adult, I would have to do things to distract myself so that I could eventually fall asleep… sometimes I did, and sometimes I didn’t. Anything little thing would spook me, thoughts and imaginations would go through my mind that… Read More 6.21.2020 – “What if it was different then?”
