One Big Step Forward

Today I had the opportunity to reconnect with a friend whom I haven’t had the chance to connect with for almost a year. We’ve seen each other in passing but we haven’t had the chance to stop and talk. And although we didn’t talk for a long time (she was at work) we did get to embrace and that was one big step forward! It was the kind of embrace that you never wanted to come out of, that brought tears to your eyes with happiness and joy, excitement and fear… an embrace that only happens between true friends and family.

I don’t know what our friendship is gonna be like for us in the future but I do know that we can go forward from here and that’s all the really matters. It might not be the same as it once was but then again no friendship should ever stay the same. It should be able to grow; evolve with time if you will.

Things are not the same and that’s okay I’m just glad we are at this point in our friendship where we can stop and chat for a minute and have a sweet embrace where we know everything the other person is feeling. God is good and He has answered my prayers. I have received my miracle and He deserves all the glory and all the praise. His love is real and He heard my cries and answered them (in HIS time of course).

So Thank you Jesus for listening to my prayers and for bringing me and my friend together again if only for a little while. My life hasn’t been the same without her and you knew it. I am so grateful that you love me enough to move on my behalf. Thank you, thank you, AMEN!

The haze has been lifted…

Okay so this weekend was a really awesome time of creativity. I did just about everything but dance… I hope you enjoy what I’ve created as much as I enjoyed making them.

These are the bows I hand made with my friend Sally's help
A painting I made for my friend
just a random picture I painted

I also wrote a little something…

I Want The World To Know

I want the world to know that you live.

I want the world to look at my life and see you.

I want the world to know that you died for them

and that you sent me to tell them about your love.

I want the world to know that your love for them is

an everlasting love that will never fade away

like our love sometimes does.

I want the world to know that you knew and created

them even before they were born and that you dont

make mistakes.

I want the world to know that you see everything

and that you are always there.

I want the world to know that just like you live in me

you can live in them.

I want the world to know that you live!

I also tinkered around on my violin and even recorded it so if you are near and would like to hear it let me know. It was pretty relaxing to let the haze lift spend some time with Jesus and create a few things. I highly recommend it to everyone!

Creative Haze

I am currently in a creative haze. It’s actually not what it sounds like.  I am actually pining away to be creative so much so that its causing a haze of pent-up creativity to produce this slowed version of my life around me. I think it’s trying to slow me down enough to find the time to let it all out. I want to dance, I want to paint, I want to write but where is the time? I’ve had time but I have used it on other things however this weekend I will be making time for my creativity to flourish! I will paint and I will dance and it will be a joyous occasion. I might even fiddle around on my violin! I’m ready and I am not gonna let my time be wasted on anything but creativity! I’ll post what comes forth from my creative haze so until next time!

FREEEEEEEDOOOOOMMMMMM

It’s exhausting! But it’s totally worth it. Tonight I experienced a freedom like none other… no really I did. The Lord has opened the box the enemy has kept me in and He told me in love that it was time for me to go and set others free! I don’t know how or when but I do know that NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER!

Therefore I am free to use the authority the Lord has given me to set those who I will come into contact free… It’s like I’m a brand new person and I am excited to share my new me with people. It may happen sooner than I realize but I know that He has prepared me for such a time as this and it is my job as His servant to obey!

Freedom, it’s just the first taste and my mind is already racing I can only imagine what my life is going to be like when I experience the whole thing. Its gonna be a long road ahead but I will NOT go back in that box nor will I focus on the mirage that the enemy had me staring at all this time. Instead I will hold my head up high and know that because the Lord lives inside of me I CAN DO ANYTHING! Freedom, it’s something worth fighting for and I’m ready who’s with me?

Road Trip Recap!

Here are a few pictures from a road trip that me and my dear husband went on. We went to South Carolina to meet my aunt Wilma and then we went up to Atlantic City, New Jersey! It was a wonderful time spent together learning about family and each other. I hope you enjoy what you see… until next time…
