Orchids *Sigh*

Orchids are funny plants. And by funny, I mean a giant pain in the rear. These high maintenance flowers require a certain level of patience and perfection that I was just not born with. I had all but given up on trying to get the orchids on my patio to grow….Who am I kidding, I

Motive

As I’m sure you can tell by my latest posts, or rather, the lack thereof, I have been feeling a little wonky lately. Lots of doubts, lots of groundbreaking epiphanies, more doubts, a dash of hopelessness and just a pinch of wonder. Truly, a valid description of my heart as of late. So today, after

Trust Like a Daughter

What does it look like to trust? Like, really trust. Not vaguely believing in the back of our minds that everything happens for a reason. Not anxiously asking for God’s peace while simultaneously spewing worry and paranoia with every breath. Not posting verse images on social media as if our declaration of belief earns us

Do You Know?

Oh, so many thoughts jumbling through my head today! So many misconstrued notions that God is bringing to my attention. So much fear and misuse of the gift of imagination. And what am I so afraid of? This is a question I keep asking myself, and I keep coming up with the same generic answers.

No Fear

Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love drives out fear. It is punishment that makes a person fear, so love is not made perfect in the person who fears.  1 John 4:18 The Spirit we receive does not make us slaves again to fear; it makes us children of God. With

The Butterfly Effect

If you read my blog regularly, you know that I have started my “daily horror flick” tradition a few days early. Normally, I start it October 1st and watch a horror movie every day until after Halloween. I say normally, but let’s be real. Actual start date usually ends up falling somewhere in the last week

Horror, Yay or Nay?

John 8:1-11 1 Corinthians 13 Mark 12: 30-31 It’s that time of year, the time for hot chocolate and sweaters (yes I wear sweaters in Florida), the time for carving pumpkins and my all time favorite, watching horror movies! I can feel your looks of disgust even as I write it, but it’s true. I
