Inspired by Rowan Williamson:

Dread and death...
An imagination can make up
A life of someone else.
Beyond our control,
We play a role in dramas--
Ones we don't choose.
We never meant to inflict
The pain on a culture--
The drama.
It's unavoidable and can't be ignored:
We are not believed.
We don't need to accept
All we've been accused of,
But how to start a conversation
When my beloved partner
Feels I aim to do nothing
Short of--
Silencing.
Wealth spirals and threatens...
Briefly, we become
Aware of realities there
For others DAILY.
Abuse and oppression--
Can't think to connect.
Can trauma offer a space
| To breathe? |
Is a door opened?
Truth over self-delusion...
We must let go;
Fear looked at square in the face...
Acknowledged; calmed so that
The heart has room
{For strangers near and far}.
Global hospitality
Possible in the presence of
Dread and death.

I long
To hear You breathe.
To see Your face,
To know what it's like--
The complexion of Your skin
And it's flaws...
Which are less || but more
Of a tale of love so deep,
So true and divine--
Imperfections cannot mar
They but make You, us
W H O L E

💜Can't get over these beautiful babes found in the Royal Gardens. Did you know you're of royalty too? 💜

My verse from my study for the day was Rev. 1:6 which states, "And formed us into a kingdom (a royal race), priests to His God and Father--to Him be the glory and the power and the majesty and the dominion throughout the ages and forever and ever. Amen (so be it)."

This verse talks about US being a kingdom and priests! This also relates to 1 Peter 2:9. Besides offering the sacrifices, a priest's job was to act as a go-between. He was the only one allowed to enter the Holiest places of the temple —those places that symbolized God's presence. He was the representative of his people to His God, and he was the representative of His God to his people. Therefore, the priest's role was to know God. And growing out of his relationship with God, his job was to help other people know God. Isn't that what it's all about? Knowing God; being in an ever-growing relationship?

Malachi 2:7- "For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, and people should seek the law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts." We are also to be a messenger. God's priest had a responsibility to speak for Him. To know Him; then to speak for Him. WE are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people. Why? That we may proclaim the praises of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvellous light (1 Pet. 2: 9).


How? Through simply bearing witness. Speaking what we know to be true —what we've seen, what we've experienced. If you've been called out of darkness into His marvellous light, if we've had the inestimable privilege of opening up to experiencing His presence in your life, of just knowing Him, then, like John, you have a message to share with anyone who will listen...

When we soared,
Baby we flew.
It was all we knew
Just me and you . . .
Over the muck and sea
Until we were out of sight.
We thought we'd get away
From it all, but then the winds
Those damn winds penetrated
Every slight little feather
But we learned,
My, how we learned
To beat the odds,
Push past the crosswinds
And gusts
And finally--
Into the zephyrs
Where we found,
Where we remembered . . .
How to be still and catch the wind;
Not to let it catch us.
We chose to be carried.
Then we soared,
Baby we flew.

How are you?
Thankful for
This life I've found
Much to see and do
When in bloom
Winter is past and spring is here
Come sit among us and be🌷
We wonder too,
How are you?

💓Lovers a' travelin'💓
.
Truth: We are backpacking through Europe.
Truth: My backpack was killing my back so I bought a cheap rolling suitcase.
Truth: My roller broke yesterday and so I am SO VERY HAPPILY back to my backpack.
Truth: I sound and feel like a spoiled American, and maybe I have figured out I am... in SO many ways, but my realizations and learned lessons are just that, mine. We have to learn from and own our own shortcomings.
Truth: I was abruptly spoken to about having my shoes up on a seat when traveling. I learned this is very rude to do here and I know if I really think about others and where their bums are sitting, maybe I shouldn't do so. Am I culturally aware "enough"? Which transpired into the lie of "Am I even enough"?
Truth: We missed our bus yesterday//it left 15 min early...is this common in Europe?
Truth: I was pecked at by a deck last night at dinner and it scared me and I screamed loudly BUT it was thee cutest little thing!!....annoying moment with myself, yet again! -- "Am I being too harsh on myself though?"
Truth: We were frustrated and harsh words may have been said...thus realizing our immense need for a savior, thus inspiring us to seek Him more.
Truth: Traveling for LONG periods does bring trials of all sorts and the real you is always revealed under trials. BUT when the real you is revealed (good, bad and ugly), embrace it all with one another, stand for a hope of a new and better day, changed hearts and love to be chosen and REMAIN. Live life surrendered, choosing to follow a shepherd.
Remember: You're loved, you're chosen, you're a royal priesthood and you can be an overcomer, no matter what this world throws at ya. YOU ARE ENOUGH!!
TRUTH: We chose love and today is a new day, full of more travels and adventure 👌🏻
.
Be thankful for all and everyone in your life who crosses your path. Be honest and true, be wild and be YOU 😘. Choose love, beloved.

Not your average Monday is upon us yet again! Get outside for a nice bike ride or snack! Enjoy the beauty that is creation. Remember you're loved so much ❤️❤️. I love you all! P.S. -- this photo was a difficult one to achieve 🙃. Make it not another "Average" Monday... it's all about the mindset!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms-- soon-to-be Mom's, desiring and praying to be future moms and moms passed. You're all amazing and wonderful women and life, obviously, wouldn't be possible without you!!
.
To the best mom of them all (to me), sorry I couldn't be with you today, but here is a picture of one of the most beautiful flowers I was able to see in Brussels. You're most loved today, @patricia_cheney !!! Troy and I adore you.
.
To my Mom-in-love, @jnkurz, the best as well-- Troy and I are so grateful for you and all you are! Proud of your current missional endeavors. We miss you and love you!

To my spiritual mothers, you mean more to me than I can explain! You're all I hope to be as a mentor, woman, mother and daughter of the King.

Remembering the great outdoors in #Sedona in my @tjmaxx find . . .
.
"It is the action that changes the terms of the relationship, or at the very least says to the master that the world might be otherwise. It requires courage and imagination: it is essentially the decision not to be passive, not to be a victim, but equally not to avoid passivity by simply reproducing what's been done to you. It is always something of a miracle...the miracle made possible by the way in which God speaks" - Rowan Williams
.
By turning the other cheek and walking the extra mile, as Jesus would say, we question the world of the aggressor, "the master", because the person who is supposed to take no initiative, suddenly does. Be that person. The toughest moments can be our life's most defining.

"Create in me a clean heart, oh God and renew a right spirit within me." Psalm 51:10 📖
.
May he create a CLEAN heart in us all. We don't want those dirty ones anymore. May he renew (make it new again) a <right> spirit within us, not a wrong spirit...
.
Know forgiveness is yours today and today is a new and fresh start to life! Joy comes in the morning💙

No filter on these babies! 🌸🌸 Did you know that with the different mixture of colors on tulips, some farmers have to rub two different colors together to pollinate them in order to achieve the beautiful many mixed colors?!
.
It's still spring which means you still have plenty of time to go and see all of the beautiful wild flowers in bloom in the states too! Eat breakfast, lunch or dinner outside today and enjoy the moments with those you love. Find something to be <extremely> thankful for today, not just mediocre about. What's not average about this Monday for YOU, friends??? Comment below👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻. I'm curious as to how this post motivates you...
