After a somewhat long drive, we enjoyed an evening where we were gathered together with mutual friends. Filling our hearts, minds and appetite with laughter.
The laughter kept echoing from one ear out to the other and quickly became a distant humming. There was finally silence and there was only us. Ten feet away from each other. Admiring the bonfire, the quiet noises of the bugs and the night sky.

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
|1 Thessalonians 5:18|
There have been so many mixed emotions for me this year! As I look back at it all, reflecting each moment I must admit: I am truly grateful and I am so ready for 2016 to begin!
Here is a collage of my “highlight reel” throughout this year.
Oh my, my, MY GOODNESS.
This dear friend of mine.. Oh how richly blessed to look back and see how God works through me and my so called schedule in life. How easily he fits people in like a glove when you need it. Every Saturday morning I committed myself to attend a women’s Bible study and be surrounded in a room filled with beautiful ladies who are wise, genuine, raw, beautiful, have such insight and perspective.

“Our creator is in our midst. He will gladly rejoice, and mightily sing while he exults over you with his quiet spirit with love.” [Zephaniah 3:17 | Paraphrased]
Happy Thursday! Today I am thankful that God is so near, He loves us with such intensity and calls us worthy. I am also thankful for talents God has given us. Those talents which gives us the ability to share our faith, and within the gifts we share they do bring pain, the joys, the laughter, the warmth, and happiness.
I couldn’t ask for anything better than to rejoice and slow dance to a comforting melody which never leaves my ears and tugs my heart with a reveling affect.
How illuminating it is to see rays of light in front me. They are so bright and I don’t turn away, I don’t allow them to blind me anymore. I step forward with confidence and thankfulness to finally breathe.

Close the door!
Shut it tight.
You are mine, my darling.
The days are trying, and I am always present.
My love, you are whole to me.
And someday, you will be abundantly whole:
To a man who calls you, “my beloved, you give me light!”
Some parts of a (rough draft) poem I wrote this past week…
[Written on: 6.4.2015]
“Lord, I know you are near, but I made myself become quite distant.
Casually walking backwards as far away from you…
I want to be at home again.
I want to feel the warmth rushing through my skin.
I want to have that conviction where I’ll always have a room, in your kingdom.
A security I blindly unappreciated…”

This Saturday evening, I had a lot of time to think about life and how I was a fool in the past. Due to recent events by realizing a guy should treat his gal the way she should be treated (respected, worthy, gracious) rather than him being the center of the gal’s life and she just surrounds herself to him and his needs. These characteristics begs an argument: What is the reaction when you are a girl verses the reaction when you are a woman.
