You are beautiful
You are loved
You are Enough
I sat still and I listened as the cricket song never ceased, for it was so in tune to the silence. In the rhythm of this silence with the crickets chirping, you can hear Jesus heartbeat, for He never stops a beating heart in the silence.
He stills my soul even in the whirling hum of hummingbird wings turning corners at 7G’s, He stills my heart to hear His voice.
“You are enough – You are loved – You are my beloved.”
They say silence is golden…I say, in the silence you can hear Jesus, and His voice is like pure gold – liquid tranquility that flows through time and space, His voice meets my ears with liquid grace.
In the silence you’ll hear your name called, like floating, pillowy soft clouds, His voice resonates pure embrace. “Come to me He says, rest and listen in the silence, I will call out your name, Beloved.” And He does…in the silence, you will hear love coming on soft breezes, His breath flowing through the forest.
we danced under the
at half past three?
You and me,
party of three
if you include
the moon, and…
oh, how you could
make my heart swoon.
Let’s dance tonight
under the moon.
Meet me at a
half past midnight.
Dance with me,
teach me that in
taking my breath away,
I can learn how to
finally breath again…
in tune to your heart beat.
Life can sometimes be hard, but when you inhale the beauty around you, you refuel your beautiful soul.
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:29-30 Msg
She sat there with her bag of problems, and with a sigh of relief she dumped it out, shaking it a few times until all the mistakes, the self contempt and the multitude of problems piled up on the table. As she looked across the table, all she could see was the glow circling around His head.
Her sweet redeemer had come.
Finally she dumped all the issues of the day, weeks even months like He asked. She sat there, hands on her head, and when she looked up she had tears streaming down her face, and the pile was gone. Where the pile lay, was golden lettering shining bright, glistening in His glow, the letters read
she looked over at Him and He said, “I AM MAKING YOU BRAND NEW, I’m giving you a clean slate – now let’s finish this week together!” She looked Him straight in the eye and sweetly whispered Amen
Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Today I saw God’s eye in the sky.
I was in the totality zone for the Eclipse. With glasses on I watched in awe, as our Father pushed the moon in front of the sun. The darkness came and it was eerily surreal. I couldn’t help but think about how God placed His Son in front of the world. How His gift of Jesus is so brilliant in the darkness. He gave us the eclipse today – the sun and moon in perfect alignment to perform this beautiful sight.
I’m in awe of His ability to move us, to just simply place beauty in front of us so we see Him in everything.
When the moon started to pass over the sun and the brilliant white light peaked through, my heart just skipped a beat. I assure you His beauty was seen today, and I am overwhelmed by the brilliance of this peak of sun after darkness. There is beauty to be found in the darkness – it is in finding the brilliance in His light.
The heavens declared Gods glory today; the arch of the sky makes clear the works of His hands. Psalm 191:1
