Quietly sitting by my favorite window. 
I look up
And I see
A billion flecks of dust
Turned golden
.
I see the sun
I see the Son
.
Title: Layers of God
.
I wrote this at breakfast one morning. From dust we come and unto dust we return. We are the dust turned bright by the sunlight, the Son’s light.
.
Genesis 3:19

Film from cliff jumping days in Italy. On this day I ate dark chocolate and blood oranges while sitting on the rocks here, and watched Mac grin as he lept over and over from the highest peak.

Anyone else annotate all your own books? 📖 🙋🏼‍♀️
I had a billion quotes I underlined and wanted to share but I guess I’ll share this one because it is a statement and truth and a quote all in one:
“What we love in our books are the depths of many marvelous moments seen all at one time.” -Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

(2/3) - SOFT AND SWEET
.
Mac proposed to me with a line from “Alpenglow” by S.Carey. He used to sing that song to me when we would lay in the mountains in Utah and just waste time together. “I was hoping that you’d be my wife…be the compass in my rugged life. I was hope that you’d walk with me… leave a child with legacy. We lay, we lay, we lay, all day.”
.
We walked down the isle to “Once In A Great While” by Nathaniel Rateliff, which is the dreamiest sounding of all dreamy sounding songs. Mac once told me that he imagined that song is what being in love with me in the 50’s would’ve felt like. We had our first dance to “Toothpaste Kisses” by The Maccabee’s, and just now I realized both songs talk about love putting stars in our eyes. I guess that describes Mac and I pretty well.
.
“Temptation of Adam” by Josh Ritter is a love story about two strangers in a bunker during WW3, its filled with charm and sweetness as he recalls how “..It was so easy to fall in love with you. It felt almost like a home of sorts or something...We’d make love then ransack the rations.”
.
Music brings so many good feelings, and this particular playlist is very personal because a lot of these songs are almost theme songs of chapters in my life. I love to hear what you like, or your own favorite songs. Share em with me. 🍦

I think when we fell in love, we did it the right way, man. Go read my post on how we fell in love with one another, and how I knew he was the one. (Link in bio.)

Last week someone broke in and stole my purse, $500 cash, my ID, and some possessions.
.
Initially- I stomped around angry and mourned my loss of stuff. But a voice in my mind kept saying, “Pray...pray...”
.
So fiiinallyyy to get that annoying voice to stop interrupting my tantrum, I prayed.
.
And instantly I was reminded of my life. My husband, my Lilly girl, my squishy bed, my favorite spot on my front porch. Chick-fil-A French fries. I saw in my mind my two close friends who just lost young family members. Our elderly neighbor who lives alone and sits in her window all day because she doesn’t know what to do and no one talks to her. Real, true, emotional loss. I didn’t care about my stupid money. I was blessed. If I was to be given a trial, I am super grateful it was just stupid, stupid stuff.
.
I know God has things happen to people so that we can learn. And grow. I’m so grateful to have this reminder of what I have, and to actively engage a mindset of gratitude. So here’s a photo of this dog that just really is so glad to lick this baby, because what a good thing to look at. Be happy. Have a great day today guys

I do my “word of the year” differently. I don’t pick one at the start of the year to use as a mantra. Instead, I live my year, ride it’s waves. Then I look back. 
My word for 2017: S U R V I V E
.
.
.
Because... Last year, man. Death, loss, pushing and shoving, completely drowning. I feel as if I lived the entire year gnashing my teeth and holding my defense. I don’t know what I would be without the gospel. I am washed away when I think of where I would be without it. It softens my heart, teaches me to be gentle when life isn’t...I just love the Lord so much. I felt Him support me all year. I appreciate more his title “The Comforter.” I really really do.
.
.
.
Meh. Who knows. Maybe I’ll break my rule this year. Maybe I will claim a word for 2018- H O P E.

“If any earthly institution or custom conflicts with God’s will, it is your Christian duty to oppose it. You must never allow the transitory, evanescent demands of man-made institutions to take precedence over the eternal demands of the Almighty God.” –Martin Luther King, Jr.

I love the way Mr. King spoke to a group and bonded them as brothers and sisters. And that he encouraged us- REMINDED us that it is our DUTY to choose the right. To pick good over evil, and hold out for the good fight. I love today, and the renewing feelings of unity his quotes bring. 🕊

If I could make out with and then court and then marry an inanimate object for time and all eternity, it would be with this face mask.

I find the more I bleed into my mind, the more the universe dotes on me. She drapes a moss covered arm around my shoulders. She dabs my eyes with strange stones. 
I’ve never seen her face so up close.

Motherhood on my mind. I am a symbolic thinker. I see signs from God in weird things, like the connection of divine femininity while I was holding my avocado at lunch 🥑🤰🏼. The seed within the body. And that seed will grow a body and have its own seed inside itself. I am on a personal spiritual journey right now deciding where I fit, as a female, in my faith. I’m studying the women of scripture, looking for clues and connections to my purpose. I don’t feel like we are all here to have no opinion, be submissive, raise children, and be forgotten while our male counterparts have names written in books and eyes full of honor that follow them. Women are spiritual warriors too. I want to uncover that completely. •

— side note: I’ll add some instastories of some of my favorite accounts that show some kick butt ladies out there. And also- swipe left to see my surprise kiss from a special lil lady ✨

Drop me a 🛶 if youve been here! 
I was so embarrassed to do the gondola because I felt like it was too touristy, and Mac talked extremely loudly in a terrible Italian accident the whole time and I felt like melting into my seat 🤦🏼‍♀️ If you want a good time, travel with my fella. He is so fun and positive and sure to really embarrass you at least three times a day. #kingoffannypacks

I’m very open with my problems, I don’t feel shame or the need to hide things. But what I’ve been realizing as I share publicly is that I am private about my moments of true joy. Everyone has problems. But late at night I look at how sweet, how gentle my husband’s demeanor is and I shut my eyes tight and lock it away in my heart. Or how he is so devoted to me, and takes a lot of punches from life straight in the gut and the man doesn’t even flinch- I mean really, he kicks Life’s 🍑. I take all my love for him and I wrap it up safe like a secret just for me. 
He is so precious to me. I am so glad to be kicking it with him. I go to sleep every night and he is there with me, he is just here and it’s not gonna change

I suppose I should quote the wise words of SaltN-Pepa. “What a man, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man.” 🕺🏽

I take all my love for him and I wrap it up safe like a secret just for me. He is so precious to me. I am so glad to be kicking it with him. I go to sleep every night and he is there with me, he is just here and it’s not gonna change . . I suppose I should quote the wise words of SaltN-Pepa. “What a man, what a man, what a man, what a mighty good man.” 🕺🏽
