  • I am full of fears. I am full of insecurities. I am full of broken things. But can I not walk? Can I not see? Can I not hear and taste and breathe and speak and whisper and shout and sing and dance and run and jump and climb and laugh and cry and make…

  • I am learning more and more to look at the reality of the goodness around me. Like instead of dwelling at “I felt sad after therapy” I COULD focus on: “damn, we’re a good looking couple and I love this man with my whole heart.” You know? The problems in life will find you and…

  • The rain makes the flowers grow. The rain brings contemplative silence, drenched in the never-ending noise of peace in the form of refreshing water. The rain provides that beautiful scent of fresh soil and new beginnings. The rain brings a cooling space to sit, to breathe the fresh air in deep, to dance in the…

Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family…

  • Today, I miss you. But today is still good. I’ll get up, I’ll feed the kitty, and I’ll pour myself a cup of tea. I’ve read the Bible and pondered Jesus’ kindness and savagery all in one. I will make some breakfast and share it with a friend, sleepily but happily ending our hunger. I’ll…
