when God’s love letter appears unexpectedly

I have searched the whole world to find you. You are My Beloved. The one I have chosen. The one I love. I have a deep seeded cry I have left unspoken for a very long time. It is possible to appear normal on the outside but to have a  broken piece within crying outContinue reading “when God’s love letter appears unexpectedly”

community: family by choice

I am very blessed in community. I know several people who feel like they are all alone in their circumstances or situations, and the reality is: often it’s due to your choices. We don’t always reach out to show our need nor vulnerability when we can, so we essentially build a wall to block outContinue reading “community: family by choice”

If I had spoken, it would have likely been grouchy before 8 am. Not my usual early bird chipper. So I posted the following to my personal Facebook page, becauseContinue reading “Am I ever alone?”

One of the downsides to working part time is missing out on the same camaraderie those who work full time share. The same can be said about our walk with God. God isn’t interested in part time relationship. He is ours full time, 24/7, 365. And beyond. We think of time in forward increments, GodContinue reading “belong”
