Life is beautiful. I’m such a hopeless (but don’t want to be helped) romantic! I just love how God works in our lives when we let Him. Today is a GORGEOUS nearly-fall day…I could write sonnets and have a personal picnic. Why is it that God is so good and gives us such beauties and… Continue reading A Rant on the State of Things
Mornings…today is one of those beautiful rainy mornings. The kind I enjoy writing on…when I smell the rain that pattered on my roof and dream a little dramatically that something glorious will happen today. The kind of morning when breakfast matters to me, getting ‘ready’ is put on hold out of the idea that I… Continue reading Good Mornings
When I was 10 years old I was in a play called “Passport to the World” it was my first play aside from the Christmas nativity story every Church kid has ever been in. 🙂 We had to draw Chinese characters for the fruits of the Spirit. I always wondered if Karla (the director) had… Continue reading Self-Control….and why did she pick me?
Today I remember men and women who answer this question with their lives.
I long to be as vividly passionate at Keith Green.
I beg Jesus for the purity and raw love of Jim Elliot.
The humility and courage of Gladys Aylward is the cry of my heart.
The unmovable soul of William Tyndale, steady and founded in His God Almighty is what I long for!
And friends, my Joy would be overflowing if I had the willingness and child-like trust of Jackie Pullinger.
Passion? His name is Jesus. His ever-lasting, unchanging, beautiful, perfect, raw and real love and passion is what drives US to passion. Because a passionatist loves company. I long to be a sword of the Lord. To destroy the giants IN the hand of God. I long to be a follower who did more than sneak behind Him to see what He did – I want to be apart of what He does. And if we ask, we are going to be apart of what He does. Because He isn’t stingy and with-holding. He longs for us to experience His passion. It’s up to us to say “Here I am. Send me.”
I was reading this post http://chelseabvdm.wordpress.com/2013/03/10/when-you-want-to-be-who-you-say-you-are/” by my friend Chelsea, Well, I was commenting on it and it turned into this! lol. My mind goes a 256 words a second! 🙂 The post (which I recommend you read!) was about unfinished projects and living up to the things you say you want to do. And… Continue reading Who I Am
Little girl, Wrapped in sack, Twirls across the dust floor. Knees bent, Head erect, As she curtsies at the barred door. “Dance with me,” says the she, Then straightens With a smile. Clothed in rags, She lifts her hands, And hums a minuet. Eyes are closed, Thoughts so bold, As she fingers the soft lace.… Continue reading Blue Sash ~ A Story of Redemption
Winter Walk My legs, my face, my fingers are all feeling frosty, but this walk is sweet. As I move my feet over the street, our hands are locking tighter, and we’re not letting go. The snow-flakes keep falling, and we stop and look up – white clouds, pale blue sky – our heads touching… Continue reading Winter Walk ~ Me & My Jesus
