This entire situation has been tearing me apart. Like you, I have seen the pain, suffering, and unnecessary evils carried out and am devasted by the outcome. I see Governors’ standing up and saying, “Not My State” when it comes to offering refugee’s sanctuary. I see people so understandably afraid; afraid of what evil we […]
Every single word of this beautiful song is speaking to me in a profound way. Just thought I would share! The pathway is broken and the signs are unclear And I don’t know the reason why You brought me here But just because You love me the way that You do I’m gonna walk through […]

With the water being balmy compared to the air in these cooler fall days, there is an etherial fog that lingers until the sun starts warming. […]
In the crazy world of online life, one theme is (sadly) forever rampant. Stealing. In my specific little online world, there is recipe stealing, picture stealing, and idea stealing. That last one is a bone of contention for many, as they do not think “ideas” can be stolen. I feel differently. This print can be […]

UPDATE: Chad’s cardioversion was not successful. His heart went back into AFib within a minute of being converted. We are looking into what our options are at this point. Most likely they will recommend more (increased dose) drugs and another cardioversion. After that they look at ablations. We are trusting in God that He has […]
I came across this quote recently and couldn’t help but take notice. “When you forgive, you heal your own anger and hurt and are able to let love lead again. Its like spring cleaning for your heart.” -Marco Schimoff I sorta dismissed it because I generally disagree with the concept of “healing thyself”. But dismissing it right […]
