Love is

Happy Valentines Day, my friends. For some of you, today comes easy, as you look forward to spent time with the one who makes your heart sing.  I celebrate with you. You are blessed. I wish you a wonderful day.

For others, today is a painful reminder of a hurting heart, longing to be understood by someone, longing to know someone who loves you more than life itself and isn’t afraid to show it. I hurt with you today.

Love is…. complicated. Or maybe it’s that we complicate love.

A week or so ago, I read a passage in Philippians 1:9 and the phrase in bold has been haunting me ever since. Praying today to learn to love appropriately, as God would have me love.

9 So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well. Learn to love appropriately. You need to use your head and test your feelings  10 so that your love is sincere and intelligent, not sentimental gush. 

I am reminded often that Gods ways are not ours, especially as I watch life unfold. In the Old Testament is a story that exemplifies this, and Judah Smith delivers it so effectively. It’s a little long, but worth the time.

May you all feel Gods love today, regardless of your circumstances.

Love you all, my friends.


Judah Smith. The love of the Father

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
