Just a few more hours and Mom and I will be in beautiful Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 excited to visit with familia, eat some good food, and soak up some sun 🌞
Why do I always wait till the last minute to pack? 🙃
Mariana’s version of American history: Hamilton and “that’s the tower that Spider-Man was on” 😂 to be fair, @mari94haddad did correct me on a couple of historical facts haha
Sometimes I wonder what random people’s pictures I’m in... just like this guy 😂
When you’re at the end of your work day and all you can think of is having a late dinner and resting your tired feet, be kind. When you forgot your coffee and didn’t get much sleep, work harder. When other people don’t know that hardship you’re going through and unknowingly say something to upset you, be gracious. Think beyond yourself. You are not the only that is frustrated, tired, or upset. Love on others. Investing that love in someone else will reap a much better benefit than harboring a negative spirit.
Colossians 1:21-29 || Jesus had no obligation to save me. He wasn’t obeying orders, but fulfilling a promise on his own volition. He wanted you. He wants you. He always will.
Just rewatched the new Lion King and it was just as good as the first time 🙌🏽
What are some practical things you do to help reset your focus if you’re in a creative rut?

One of my favorite things about a city is seeing the old intricate architecture mixed with modern skyscrapers 🏙
First stop in NYC was 💃🏽
Christmas mode is a go🎄
So, @delaney.johnston is a creative genius. Not only did she capture these shots, but she had the idea for them as well. Loved being able to feed off of her artistic mind 🧠
Twenty five years into marriage, and these two are still so in love with each other ❤️
My excitement level for NYC tomorrow with @delaney.johnston 😁
Coffee and deep conversations are my love language, so it was a perfect combo for a hangout 😊 plus pictures, duh
I have a distinct memory of when I was visiting family in Martha’s Vineyard and I was about 11. We were at an intersection and the only other car was a 50s baby blue convertible with the beach setting and a clear blue sky in the background, and that’s when I first fell in love with an antique car 😍
Taking advantage of the fall time before it goes away 😅

When is the last time you had silence?

I’m not talking about relaxation, but true silence. Nobody else around, no music playing, no background noise. Just you and God.

This is something I need to do more often. Even while reading my Bible, I often have some background noise going on or my dog right by me, which can be distracting. I think sometimes we need true silence and separation. (I am most definitely speaking to myself here!)

These truly end up being the sweetest times I have with my God. This is a time where I pour out my heart. I praise Him for His endless blessing and love. Everything I am struggling with. All the hurt. To those who know me, I am not a crier, but I often cry in these sweet moments with the Lord. Serving God is not always emotional and glamorous, but wow is it beyond worth it.

It is in these moments I am reminded of my purpose — to cry out God’s love and worship the One who has created me.

It’s simple.

The gospel is simple. God’s love is simple. And, oh, how powerful it is. Do not complicate it. Be still and know that He is God.
