Dragon Breaths...


Me: “Time for bed.”
4yo: “Batman never sleeps.”


Take the plunge.

I’m just really glad that Jesus knew that I need Dahlias. Not only did he know that, he made me like that. I love that in July I took pictures of the Dahlia border at Hampton Court Palace in England, and I love that it seems to be more relevant 2 months later. God gives you exactly what you need and MORE. God gives us our daily bread and it is absolutely impossible to hoard it. Wonder begins where entitlement ends. And this is a lesson I need to relearn everyday. 

This is my last night in the place that has been my home for the past 2 years. I will seriously miss my light blue walls, my roomie and best friend, and all of the life that has happened in this apartment. Moving is always so bittersweet.  #thepantryforever

Sometimes manna looks like dirty feet, coffee, sweet adventurous friends, and macarons. Thankful that the Lord invites me to sit at his table, dirty feet and all, and be nourished by that which I don’t understand.

"For forty long years, God’s people daily eat manna— a substance whose name literally means “What is it?" Hungry, they chose to gather up that which is baffling. They fill on that which has no meaning. More than 14,600 days they take their nourishment from that which they don’t comprehend. They find soul-filling in the inexplicable. They eat the mystery. They eat the mystery. And the mystery, that which made no sense, is ‘like wafers of honey’ on the lips."- Ann Voskamp
