living in every moment

I don’t like to say I’ve had a great day or a bad day. I think that so many times our days are filled with moments. I had a friend who used to call them God moments. They taught me to live in the happy ones, and get through the sad ones even if we get through them one minute at a time, though I have had to break them down into 30 second intervals.


Today I found myself thinking about a beautiful life. I thought about how it seems so short. I thought about how I wondered what God is thinking. I wonder what He thinks about orphans, or why He allows babies to go hungry. And then I get so overwhelmed because what the heck do I know?

I thought about how sometimes there is just heartache that only God can heal. I was wishing I could get a hug. I felt like all I needed was a hug, that kind of hug when you actually fall into the arms of someone you love because God sends those people when you need them most.

As I was walking to the bathroom, I was praying (it’s a long walk, and seems to be my newest way to pray, I see a map and pray for our newest muffin on the way, or I pray for whoever God lays on my heart), I started singing. This actually happens a lot more than you would think. Thankfully no one was around, for their sake… I was thinking about how much God wants us to love. He gave us such a gift to allow us to love, and I feel like it’s such a privilege to be able to love people, and once you love someone, really love them, you always love them. At least it’s like that for me… so if I’ve loved you… I’ll always love you.

I posted to today… Sometimes our hearts break and only God can heal it.

And at end of a long day of work, a job that I am thankful for, I came home, grabbed some grub, so thankful for that too! And headed over to AKT Theatre and watched the dress rehearsal of The 3rd Annual Caberet. I can’t go on Saturday because of a work commitment, so this was the next best thing! I am telling you, it was amazing, song after song… and then a fancy surprise at the end. WOW! Cried through the whole song. Mary did you know? Best rendition I have EVER heard in my life, while I might be a bit bias. The moments. Beautiful and sweet. Being wrapped in the arms of my Savior. (I'm serious when I say GO!!!!!!)

Today has it’s beautiful moments, and some that were sad, and God uses them all to bring us closer to Him. He uses everything for His glory. I am so thankful for His love.

I’m thankful for the way He calls my heart, as I said in my previous post, to do something. Whatever He calls, I will answer. Whatever it is, supporting a local theatre project, supporting Haiti in any way I can… loving teenagers, hugging someone… Here I am… send me. Send me to love.

Thank You Jesus for all the moments you give us. Every.single.one.








Pain is alive in a broken heart
The past never does go away
We were born to love
And we're born to pay
The price for our mistakes

Grace, she comes with a heavy load
Memories, they can't be erased
Like a pill I swallow, he makes me well
And leaves an awful taste

Oh I know this song won't do
Enough to prove my love to you
In my heart you'll always know
There is a place only love can go
There is a place only you can go

Take my notions and words to heart
This is the cry of a man
I can't bring you fortune or noble life
But I'll love you all I can

Oh I know this song won't do
Enough to prove my love to you
In my heart you'll always know
There is a place only you can go



Oh I know this song won't do
Enough to prove my love to you
In my heart you'll always know
There is a place only love can go
There is a place only you can go
