When Obedience Disappoints

A few months ago I made a move that I believed God was leading me to make and it failed... Terribly. I had my hopes built up, thought this instruction would lead me to an end result I was praying about for a while now. I prayed, fasted and obeyed but the move crashed.. And …

Seasons Change

As we witness nature transition so beautifully and effortlessly from fall to winter… We should all take a lesson from the trees.

SEASONS (I borrowed this picture from my church's website} The Tree in its SEASONS (I borrowed this picture from my church’s website)

I’ve been trying to understand where my fairly recent obsession with landscape photography came from.

I grew up in the country in a small town right by the ocean. I spent my childhood playing in the bushes, making mud pies and climbing trees. Most of my mornings were spent by the ocean, with my grandmother, watching the dawn break. (I sometimes look at my son playing video games or tapping away at his tablet and feel a tinge of guilt – my childhood was, by far, way more enriching than his – of course he’ll never think so 🙂 ).

Needless to say, I find my solace in nature. And so it’s not unnatural that I should want to capture it. I’ve almost exhausted what’s left of the fall foliage, now I find myself looking forward to winter…

Autumn Falls!

Re-Post Just Because it’s Fall 🙂

october3Lately, I have discovered I have a passion for photography. I don’t even know where it came from but  for the past few months, while walking back and forth to work, I have been overwhelmed by the beauty of God all around me and there’s a burning desire in me to capture it, similar to when I get inspiration for a poem. Unfortunately, I don’t have a “photographer’s camera”, it’s just me and my I-phone and I know nothing of lines, compositions, shutter speeds and ISO, so I’ve just been doing the best I know how until I can get a real camera and take some photography classes. ( P.S. Christmas is coming up and my birthday is two months later, if anyone wants to buy me a Nikon D3300 I will love you forever 🙂 )

And so, in this very difficult season I’m in (I like to call it my refinement process) I’m…

In Due Season….

For the last few months I have been battling a lot of frustration. In fact, had it not been for the Grace of God I might not have had the strength to stay the course. I even considered deleting this blog :-(. But God in his goodness, revealed these words to me and since then …

Father, I come.

Father I come, Today I am feeling the weight of this walk. Today it is heavy. The process feels burdensome and the road feels so, so long. It seems as though I'll never scale these mountains. It seems as though I'll never see green pastures or still waters. It feels as though this sadness and …

Who Do You Say You Are?

"They" said I was never the "pretty girl". Cute maybe. Beautiful not so much. I got my fair share of compliments on my big bright eyes, crooked smile and my thick thighs. And my voluptuousness definitely got me some attention, maybe not the right attention but attention, nonetheless. They said I was never the pretty …

“It’s Really Not Faith If There is Nothing to Fear.”

Lately, I have been stressing out really hard about an assignment God revealed to me. Since I received this call, I have been having a very real "Moses" moment.. that has been going on for weeks actually. "God this is too big for me. I don't know enough. The people doing this have doctorate degrees. …

“What Would You Do If You Couldn’t Fail?”

I am a great writer. I KNOW that. I know that I can tell a story, write a poem or a song, get a message across, create, convince, coerce... I can work magic with my pen. It doesn't matter the subject matter or the forum, I can convey it and I can do it well. …

Dear 2014…

You kicked my butt so bad some days I wanted to give up on life. There were times I thought I would never make it through but you are coming to a close and I am still here. I outlasted you. And that in itself is a reason to rejoice. Still, I hold no bitterness …

Give Your Gifts

I woke up this morning at 4:00 am to a bubbly seven year old, bursting at the seams with excitement, ready to open his gifts. I usually look forward to the joy on his face when he rips open a package and sees something he's been wishing for all year. The thank yous and hugs …
