hello!

i think i’m ready to come back. i’d been using this really great site called jux for the past several months which has been really helpful for me to process and have something to look back over as a visual reminder. sadly they are closing their site down soon because there is a lack of…

looking up

I wish I could report that things are all well and good in my ‘hood. Unfortunately I don’t have a job, my cell phone got turned off, and it’s very cold. Thankfully, God has provided abundantly, graciously and faithfully for me this past month that I’ve been without a job, including one-day temp jobs here…

lately: word pictures

how do you capture a whirlwind? how do you tame a speeding cheetah? how do you collect all your thoughts? there’s a reason i blog, and i say it with great regularity. it’s therapeutic. seeing my thoughts spill out into this text box on a page as letters and words squeeze together as my fingers…

Morning

On Wednesday morning I went up to Mt. Rubidoux for the first time since I was a baby, apparently. I’ve been in this city for about 6 years since graduating and it was a first for me. The amazing thing is I went up there just before sunrise and fell in love with the view,…

I ended up participating/joining/experiencing/observing the Tweet Remembrance service, 100% online,…

notice anything?

do you notice anything? do you like it? is it too much? too busy? here’s a super easy poll to answer that very question. just for fun :)

Everyone on Google today

Have you been to google yet today? :) You can even record a short little song and share it right on the homepage! Here’s my little diddy: Happy Thursday :) (I had a calm Tuesday and fairly calm Wednesday..but back to stressful today, not because of what I’m doing..but because of what I can’t do. One…

Modest is Hottest! Rebecca St. James speaks for modesty

Last night, artist, author and advocate for purity and modesty and pro-life issues, Rebecca St. James was a guest on the Hannity show along with Tamara Holder, one of the recent “slut walk” advocates. I cannot speak highly enough for Rebecca, because she has walked the purity/modesty road faithfully, and has just gotten married for…
