This year Good Friday has a unique meaning for me. A special significance as I embrace a more intimate understanding.
Growing up I knew what Good Friday was. It was the day Jesus went to the cross. It was the day the only perfect righteousness Man Who deserved nothing less than honor and respect, was beaten, whipped, and everything so painfully agonizing that we have a glimpse of with the…
I want to do the right thing but I keep doing the wrong thing. I want to think the right thoughts, but I keep thinking the wrong thoughts. I want to do good things, but I keep falling back into bad habits. I mean, that was me, the internal anguish that I was currently experiencing in that moment. I remember thinking at that point and time, Romans 7 is Tullians chapter.
These past two weeks have…
"I’m so happy to have good things that I don’t mind the lack of interesting things happening in my professional life. Interesting things — the good kind of interesting — will follow if I’m patient."
What do you guys think? Feel free to call/ email/ text/ comment/ send smoke signals
*preference lies with phone calls but I am growing into a sacrificial nature when it comes to growing closer to that which pleases God. Amen :-)
I miss my mom.

“Say something I’m giving up on you…” Unresponsiveness can expose heart conditions (good and bad), that we never knew we had and remind us of God’s love for us for which we’ll never know the depths. Amazing grace via humility.
A couple of days ago in the midst of an evening filled with errand runs on the north side, I realized I was in close proximity to a coffee shop I’d visited once before called Wormhole.
This realization came simultaneously with the awareness that it was late afternoon, and I hadn’t consumed any coffee since that morning. I’m learning restraint can be quite satisfying when time permits to partake…
Self-reflection is lifelong huh? I can dig it.
Makes me appreciate patience, kindness, new mercies, and grace …all rooted in love, all the more.
“…But if I am doing the very thing I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me. I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good. For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man, but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is…
