What can people say about my life? Is my shadow my own or merely a masquerade? Do I allow others to see my battered, broken, belabored … Continue reading What does your shadow look like?
What would we think of people who gleefully throw mud at a pure white wedding dress, vandalize classic and precious works of art, or burn copies of Shakespeare’s plays? At best, we label them confused. At worst, we label them … Continue reading do you wake up thinking about the beauty of God?
*Disclaimer: I’m writing this to myself. It is my hope that I can change from these experiences and reflections. If others benefit as well, that would be wonderful.

I actually seem to thrive during periods of insane activity. 🙂 Also, I work really well with checklists, so the post was one way of me rehearsing what I needed to prepare for and accomplish over the next several days. I’m very thankful for the opportunities ahead of me and I definitely look forward to both couples getting married! It is at times like these that I truly realize how grateful I am for God’s Word and the encouragement of my brothers … Continue reading 9.10.10
