Afire

AFIRE:  on fire; blazing: full of excitement and energy. The word afire and its definition perfectly signifies my love for Jesus Christ.  It is a word that when I first read it, I felt encompassed with how relational it was to what I am feeling inside. Inside my heart.  Inside my soul. I chose this […]

Foggy

Most of the time I can describe my moods by simple words and phrases. “I’m okay.” “I’m doing well!” “I’m SO excited!” Or as an 80’s girl, “Totally awesome!” But then there are days where the words just cannot express my mood.

Whitewashed

I love a good home renovation or decorating TV show. The creative side in me gets excited in seeing something old become new again: a fresh sanding and paint job, a shiny new light fixture, or splashes of color on fabrics.

Deeper

I sat on the outside edge of our boat looking down into the water. Its murkiness hid what was below it’s surface. I knew there were fish under the glittery-tipped ripples because I could occasionally see the outline of their bodies, but for the most part, I was just looking into muddy water. Sometimes this […]

The Taste of Bitterness

One of my favorite experiences while in Israel was floating in the Dead Sea. My tour group ladies all gathered in a circle, laughing in expectation of what we were about to do, held hands, laid back, and kicked one leg out towards the sky; pretending to be synchronized swimmers. It was a surreal moment […]
