The Healing is Not Far Away


When a cherry blossom stuns us with her beauty

capturing our hearts

we know the healing

is not far away.

Do you feel loved today?

Such a Beautiful Healing


Our hearts were never meant to be broken,

over and over again

our love fractured,

and yet spring

is such a beautiful healing,

moving us forward

each year

repairing our spirits.

The Man You Have Called Me to Be


As I get older Lord God, I am more amazed at how good You are to me

and my family. I know this earthly life is but a mist, rolling in

from the ocean, and soon this frame of mine will be

taken away, only to be given a more beautiful presence.

May I always be worthy of being with You,

and may I always be – the man

You have called me to be.

Riding Wild Horses

from wallpaperstock

The past few weeks have been a wild ride! I’m having a great time writing, and I’m so grateful that you are with me on this journey.

My wings are extended like razors cutting through the frozen air, and my spirit is free! Every day I have some inspiration. Second to writing, I love photography. And the winter has not yet fully surrendered her beauty.

I do feel like I’m riding a fast horse, with the wind in my hair. I can’t thank you enough – so thank you!
