Lady in Love

Lady in Love

I was in the shower, praying about identity.  I know that's awkward to read, imagine how many times I reminded Jesus we could just leave that part out...but here we are....I usually have good prayer time in the shower, for the most part it's a rare opportunity for alone time.  That day was hair washing day, and if you know me at all, that is a rare occurrence….       “Lord, how do you see me?”   I was deep in prayer (or maybe I forgot how life works...whatever....) somehow I managed to get shampoo all in my eyes, ...

Hearts were Created to Beat Forever

Hearts were Created to Beat Forever

I have written the blog for this piece in my mind 300 times.  Each seemed wrong, so I have waited.  I wondered what the Lord would reveal after we released the video that shared Jennifer’s story (if you missed it, you can find it here) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrwET-3p68A, This week, I had a heartbreaking conversation with a friend.  She has been through three miscarriages.  She and her husband decided after the last two that they are not going to try again. While they are at peace with that decision, she had not found the same hope that Jennifer had.  She was still...

Longing for Home

I have never been the kind of girl who thinks I will someday build my "forever home".  I don't know why, but even as a little girl, I didn't draw it or picture it.  I didn't have floor plans in my hope chest.  I don't have it all planned out on a Pinterest board.

Longing for Purpose

Longing for Purpose

I usually love the light bulb moment when some random pondering is suddenly illuminated with understanding.  Not so much this week.  This week, the clarity was painful to see at first.  I am on this new journey of becoming a more legit artist and writer.  I shared the fears and insecurities that have bubbled up in the blog post   https://artistictherapy.net/blogs/news/here-goes-nothing.  I dream of the things I share growing.  I love to picture it spreading, like a ripple effect.  Stones have always been a huge part of my life. The idea of my stone causing a ripple effect just makes...

Experiencing Wonder...Part Two

Experiencing Wonder...Part Two

On Friday, we experienced the wonder of Victoria Falls from the half cracked window of a moving van, speeding towards what we thought was the plan...then more slowly, with selfies when we pitifully drug our luggage back across the border, feeling the shock of plans denied.   On Saturday, our group decided that our best option was to settle into a life in Zambia until the United States could come pick us up. With that, we decided to go explore this natural wonder in depth before heading back to Lusaka. We started with a hike to the top of the...
