{Mr&Mrs}

We’re off friends! On a new adventure. We are just shy of being married for 2 months. We’re learning what it means to love deeply, forgive freely, and to move in the eb and flow of uncertainty. That’s life, isn’t it? It’s been a hard couple of months. Months filled with some serious love, joy,…

back again.

Hello blogging friends. I’m back, and taking just a few of the moments this evening at home in Indy to blog while I have internet access. My heart is rather content to pour out some words here, sitting on the blue couch with tan trim next to my Dearest Daniel while my sister and mom…

thoughts from a restless bird

When it comes down to it I love this time. We take walks in the evening, and sit on concrete steps. I like sitting and listening. Love hearing your thoughts, as we ride in the car, and watch the road stretch out in front. I pray this: That our love, His love in us will…

Adventure Day 12: Today, I woke up to snow

Today, I woke up to snow on the branches in the woods outside my window. While yesterday was spring-like warm, today has morphed back into winter-wonderland. I like Spring. I’m glad it’s coming, and just like the resurrection, God brings renewal to all things that now lay dormant and sleepy in chilled ice and mud….

Adventure Day 10: He Reigns!

  Today I got up early (probably the earliest I’ve been up all Christmas Break) because today is Christmas. (so thankful.) Today I sat, grateful for GPS, sweatshirts, jewelry and so many gifts showered down in a family room with my Mom, Dad, Brother, and Sister. (so thankful.) We went to church, and I was…

Adventure day 9: inspired

While I had to pack up all of my art stuff, I’ve been itching creative. First, over break I received the awaited Pinterest invitation. I’ve decided that Pinterest is Facebook for creative people. I love it. (now…to not get addicted to it…) It has been a lovely source of inspiration! So many pictures, so many…

Luke 19:28-44 28And when he had said these things,he went on ahead,going up to Jerusalem. 29When he drew near to Bethphage andBethany, atthe mount that is called Olivet, he sent  two of the disciples, 30saying, “Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied,on which no one…

boots and mountains

{I was talking about life with a friend this evening. Brook S. and I have had many an art conversation this autumn. To say that I appreciate her would be an understatement.} And tonight I thought of mountains…and boots. The past three years practicing art has been like learning how to lace up hiking boots….

lessons learned

    Sacrifices = Worship I’ve asked what it means to worship, I’ve asked God to show me what that means…what it means for all of life to be poured out, glorifiying Him….specifically I’ve asked how art fits into that. I’m asking how He wants me to do it, how my attitude should be. Thankfulness,…

reminders of glory

cello strings open spaces lighting up soul dances words formed with wooden pieces golden plates that remind us that we are called to eat at the King’s table.   He always fills us with good things. I wait for words breaking human silence, yet, still, find thankfulness in stars and hymns ‘how great is Your faithfulness’…

oh heart.

this deep down is frustrating. I’ve tried to let go. I’ve tried to give up. I keep trying. I keep giving up. things like: beautiful music. notes played in harmony and melody. What is this melody? It is the reminder that You are trustworthy. But it still aches. It still hurts. There are so many…
