A Father’s Arms

Strong, but tender. Protective, yet loving. Authoritative, but kind. Powerful, yet welcoming. So many words could express the same thing, and it doesn’t matter how old I am. I will always love being wrapped in a hug in my father’s arms. Fathers – don’t ever forget the important and Advertisements

Just A Table Away

Tonight I met up with some friends at a local cafe. We had a great time and I decided to hang out a little longer even after they had left. As I pulled out my laptop, I overheard the table across the way from me speaking about something that caught my ear. As I listened […]

When Life Gives You Lemons

Make lemonade. Or as someone once said…throw those lemons back at life and tell it to make its own. darn. lemonade. Smile reader – sometimes life hands us things we don’t know how to handle. Sometimes we’ll cry, sometimes we’ll laugh, and if you’re anything like you me, you might even

Lift Each Other Up

This past weekend there was a lot of hate and tragedy that occurred. To be honest, I’m still processing through it all myself. At a later time, I may share more of my thoughts but for tonight only few words need to be said. Let’s love each other as Christ Jesus loved us, reader. Instead […]

The Empty Swing

The sun had just begun to set and only minutes remained before the park closed for the night. The parents and children were all gathering their things from the day and were on their way out. She opened the gate that stood between the park and the parking lot, and stepped inside. She heard the […]

In the midst

In the midst of the crazybusychaos of life, take time to sit back and just breathe. I love being productive as much as (if not more) than the next person, but I’m recognizing the importance of rest. I hope you find time this weekend to
