I have a pillow on my bed that reads “Life is Beautiful”. I bought it as a reminder to appreciate the life I have and also to consider even the most difficult parts beautiful.

I look around our yard and see all of the green. Spring and summer are my favorite times of the year. I love the gentle breeze, the tinkling of the wind chimes, the bird as they sing songs of renewal; the soft wrestling of the new leaves in the trees as a fresh wind blows… Continue reading Look Closer

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. Smallness in shape yet hopeful, breaking through the suffocating blackness. A lifeline. A position to take hold of; focus on, steady ones course by.… Continue reading The Light in the Darkness

Friendship is meant to enrich your life, its meant to build you up and fortify you against the harsh elements of the world. God designed relationship / friendship. He is the author of it all.
