Sometimes I tell stories. Most of the time I rattle my soul until I break and my heart spills out onto the page.

"I cannot jump the distance. You'll have to toss me!"--Gimli, LOTR

I am a complete nerd. I got the Ring of Power for my birthday.

Book recommendations:
The Oath--Frank E. Peretti
Lord of the Rings--J.R.R. Tolkien

Song recommendation: "Awake" by Beckah Shae

I'm going to meet the King someday!
And I'm super pumped!

this whole thing has been
a weird sort of trust exercise
like we’re standing at
the edge of the cliff
and You’re the one with the
parachute
asking day after day,
“daughter, do you trust me?”
You keep reminding me
You’re in control
You keep daring me
to step off the edge with You
but my fear of the depths
is great
and my faith is so, so small
I shrink away from the edge
but there is no turning back
I can only go forward
there is only me, the edge,
and Your outstretched arms
and so I cling to You
I take the leap of faith
pretty soon I’m standing
on the shore and You’re
already on the waves
calling me out into the storm
because it’s time
to try walking on water

    SUCH a beautiful piece!!!
    Oh my gosh, I just saw your message board. I love Bethel Music, and Even If is an AMAZING song. I actually really needed to hear that right now.
