This is one of my favorite pictures – I say that about most of my pictures of Texas. It was taken while traveling down the backroads of west Texas during a tour of colleges for my oldest daughter. The trip consisted of just us girls (me, my oldest and youngest). We three traipsed across Texas… Continue reading A Beautiful Tour
Ink black sky, sliver of a moon shining bright. Lone star twinkling in the night there in the darkness, tethered to the slip of illumination coming from the crescent shaped moon.

We are all somewhere in between something. A beginning and the end. New and old, Life and death. Some time ago I found myself in this place of somewhere in between.

It was written during a time I was attempting to traverse the loss of several precious people in my tribe. Loneliness, grief, and a loss of joy had taken root in my being. I… Continue reading Through the Valley of Winter

I will fight against the fiery arrows of the wicked one that threatens my faith in the redeemer. I will fight the urge to quit, give in and give up.
