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 […]

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.

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 […]

Living During the Race

I have a desire. A desire that most would frown upon and question. A desire that isn’t “normal”, and one that some would consider odd. I’ve spent some time thinking about it, wondering why I have felt so overpowered by this feeling, at times. I haven’t talked to anyone about it, in fear of being […]
