what is a blog?!?!? re-blog – randomness #1 – on CreATiviTy

I have not touched this blog in quite some time.  Not that I have nothing to write or nothing I desire to share with the world, but rather I am focused…. or at least somewhat focused.  Focused on family. Work. Life. Yet I desire to write.  To share.  To create.  So here I am.  Returning…

empty shampoo bottles

empty shampoo bottles

It was 3 years ago. I found myself “home” in southern California with no “exit” plane ticket in hand.  This had not happened for 7 years. I moved in with my sister, brother in law, and 2 year old nephew (at the time).  I remember buying the biggest shampoo and conditioner bottles I had purchased…

on LOVE

This post was started months ago.  Yes many months ago.  Yet only the title has been in tact.  I guess I have been busy with the reality of life.  The reality of BEING in LOVE. I just got married on January 17, 2014.  It has been a whirlwind of activity leading up to and surrounding…

Praying in the midst of a ridiculous catastrophe is not easy…nor should it be.  Tension is great.  Reality of DARKNESS… a little overwhelming.  Nothing can ‘explain’ WHY this happened.  Nothing can FIX the BROKENNESS we feel when we PRAY, when we face this tragedy.  The news simply repeats the ‘facts’ they know.  Piecing together what…

on getting away

on getting away

There is nothing that gives you more FOCUS than getting away.  Nothing that feeds your creativity, your energy, your life, like getting away. “Get outside if you want to meet God.” As I prepare for a short little get away down to Mexico, my mom reminded me that I said those same words when I…

Christmas 2012….some thoughts.

Christmas 2012….some thoughts.

Each year, new.  Each year, different. I struggle with the consumerism that seems to be an unavoidable issue during the holidays.  Maybe because I am faced with my own internal struggle of consuming,  and not wanting shopping to be what fulfills me.  Rather wanting to somehow show LOVE to those who are closest to me.  YES…

Life in the place of waiting

Life in the place of waiting

Seasons come and seasons go. Sometimes there is simply a time to wait.  A time to not GO.  A time to stop moving.  This does not mean that it is a time to DIE, but simply to WAIT.  To let time pass without sprinting, without wanting, without striving. The world moves so fast these days. …

a “normal” day

a “normal” day

Friday morning.  I shave my face, take a shower and make some coffee.  Eat a little granola and water the lawn.  It is pretty dry this time of year and the weeds seem to be winning, but hopefully with a little water and a little love, we will come out on top. I have not…

Good Friday – poem/thoughts

Good Friday – poem/thoughts

I will run the race I will count the cost I will LET GO TRUSTING the ONE who bore it ALL. CROSS PAIN DEATH My understanding still lacking Yet my FAITH only increasing. Passover Lamb Blood shed Will it ever stop? Wars & rumors of wars. Hell on earth… Even in suburbia Bound in chains….
