TeamWork #1: Life’s Canvas

Tosin shared this with me the other day as a comment on my post The World’s Largest Puzzle. This is beautiful. I was ensnared from the get go. Her words painting a picture I could not take my eyes off of!

I am a better person from reading this. Thank you Tosin for sharing this with me. Now, I must pass it on!

Alethea's Mind

An empty canvas stands before us. We stare into the vast spread of nothingness as the artist works through his mind to create an imagery only he can see. We’re left in the dark, we haven’t come to life, yet we trust the one with the brush and all the colours in his hands. His works of the past surely speak for him as we can clearly see, so though we are still wet paint on his pallet, soon we’ll dress the canvas well.

His first coat of white brings us all to life; the birth of every one of us starts the story to be told. Our first cries, each a drop of paint that wears his brush like drapes of silk and wets the surface with every stroke. The canvas, though once white with nothing, looks a lot whiter now, white with life, white…

Wonderful Weekends & A New Family Member

Two weeks ago Brandon asked if I could get off work early in order to pick him up from the church. He wanted me to be there when he got off the bus that brought him home after his first church camp without his sister. I told him I may not be able to with… Continue reading Wonderful Weekends & A New Family Member

The World’s Largest Puzzle

I love doing puzzles. It was a hobby that turned into a passion there for a while. I was fascinated by dragons in high school, so most of the puzzles I did had dragons somewhere within the photo. I had one where a wizard had just defeated a dragon and smoke was coming up off… Continue reading The World’s Largest Puzzle

Jesus Christ: From A Child’s Mind To John’s Vision

Wow, something really hit me in church the other day when my pastor was preaching. It was was one the few times I have gone to the “adult” evening service. I normally go in with the children and help out. But this night we had enough help, so I went to the adult service. I… Continue reading Jesus Christ: From A Child’s Mind To John’s Vision

There Are No Leftovers

This…this right here is not how I have viewed the waiting, a status I am in right now…
“The waiting can be favor too – you may not be ready for the fullness of your purpose on earth right this second, and if it were given to you, it would be incredibly destructive because the tools you need to steward it have not yet been built.”

Hannah, thank you so much for this wonderful post and teaching an “old” man a new way of looking at things!

Beautiful done and worded so elegantly.

With Songs of Joy

DSC_0041Recently, I’ve found myself living in a perpetual state of orphan-minded, poverty-stricken brokenness. It is really not fun, but an incredibly important realization has struck me about these few weeks of mountain top highs with God and valley lows with Him too – sometimes your ideas about God have to be broken and reformed to go deeper with Him because we all have faulty theology to a degree, and man is He is breaking off some of mine.

He is not a God of lack but of abundance.

I tend to feel the need to hide from Him – I see His love poured out over others, and immediately assume I am unwanted, unfavored, and a bother to Him because maybe He loves those people more. And it breaks His heart that I default to believing that. Favor poured out on someone else doesn’t mean less favor for you –…

Hunting And Fishing Memories

Man, writing the story about the Wounded Warrior Hunts really brought back a lot of my hunting and fishing experiences from my childhood and later in life. Several of them are still as vivid today as the day they happened. Want to take a walk down memory lane with me? Cool! Let's go. There are… Continue reading Hunting And Fishing Memories
