Heavy Hearts

So much tragedy. So much uncertainty. So much chaos. This world that we live in…this world. I know that the Bible speaks of the last days…the days in which we are living, describing in detail the very types of events that we are unfortunately experiencing and to which we are bearing witness. 

Yet, even with the Bible shedding such clear light on the reality of what it is to live in this fallen world, at this time, it is still immensely shocking when these types of tragic events come to pass.

Through it all I still pray for peace, harmony, and togetherness, and my focus is still on Christ. There is so much that is unable to be understood, unable to be grasped, and unable to be logically processed. But through it all God is still with us and He is still Love. Love and peace to us all #lovebythedrop

Happy Mother’s Day ❤️

I am blessed to have a mother who loves me beyond measure, oftentimes puts my needs above her own, and sacrifices without having to be asked. 

Thank you mom for all that you have done, are doing, and will do. I do not deserve you and I could never be worthy of you.

You are a tangible representation of God’s heart and I will cherish you always. #lovebythedrop

A Little Encouragement 

Lately I have sensed that a lot of people are going through some things – big things, small things, and maybe things that are so uncertain that it’s not even clear how big or small they actually are. 

None of us is immune to experiencing the challenges of life, and none of us has devised a way to completely avoid or eradicate them. And, in part, that is one of the many things that connects us all – our sheer inability to avoid the things that we wish to avoid the most.

So, I just wanted to encourage all of us who are going through something, no matter the size, depth, and width of that something, to keep going. To give to God what is only meant for Him to shoulder. To handle only what we are meant to handle. To keep putting one foot in front of the other and to determine to see the journey all the way through to the end, no matter what.

And may we receive hugs when we need hugs, a kind word when a kind word is needed, and the time to breathe when when we wonder if the next breath will come. 

Be encouraged and know that challenges are temporary. This too shall pass. #lovebythedrop
