Word for 2017: Abide

By on January 2, 2017

There is a particular excitement that only arises around January. The warm nostalgia of Christmas fades and is replaced by the bubbling joy of a fresh start – a new year. The desire to begin anew and pursue self-improvement becomes contagious, appearing in the form of New Year’s resolutions. Yet, as much as goals, plans, and […]

Paradise

By on January 17, 2012

Inspired by the song. She glanced up to the sky and could not understand why the world was so endless and yet so empty. Because against the blue the only inhabitants were the lonely sun and moon. How can one define a day? By the light the Lord gave? She knew it was time to […]

Realization

By on October 4, 2011

We all share the same journey. Separate from the One who made us, we cling onto empty desires, pains, and logic.  All are based on the obvious worry about what others think. To sustain ourselves we compare, isolating our identities in relation to one another.  These motives are not only present in peer pressure, but in the […]

Choice

By on May 9, 2011

Her fate was a step away, one of the thousand muddy steps splattered across her life. This moment stood near the end of an emotional trek. A journey of previously thought insignificance. She wonders, with a now uncertain heart, where is this all supposed to lead? It was midnight, and the fresh morning rested comfortably. […]

Tough Week?

By on March 3, 2011

Stress is natural, normal, but usually nonsensical. Everyone has moments of weakness everyday – sneaking in as worries, doubts, distractions, drama, or concerns. We all are susceptible to the contagious presence of stress in our conscience or in others. I am no stranger to the forms of stress; for stress is the innate sister of […]

“Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.” Things small can be the greatest of all. Because they always exist as the beginning. An atom. Cell. Egg. Grain of sand. Cocoon. The concept of growth only comes into […]

Robots to the Rescue?

By on July 20, 2010

The world is being to be taken over by megabytes. Technology is all about the latest design, it is the now and the future. It is our sole source for communication, our immersion into the moment rather than the past, an ultimate and universal connection of human interaction. Phones and mp3s are designed to hold […]

Soul Meets Body

By on July 12, 2010

Separation hurts. Isolation aches. Mistakes echo with pain. The sense of wrong, guilt, and regret is part of human existence. And yet when the word sin hits the air, a room can either grow silent or burst in anger. Once uttered or cried, the word welcomes the boundaries of religion. Today many assume it is […]

A World in Color

By on July 6, 2010

My eyes can see red. And blue, always green, oh purple, for sure orange, and forever yellow. They witness rainbows and falling crimson leaves in autumn, rippling reflections in pure water and the shining flashes of metallic buildings. I view every hue that nature reflects from the light our Earth spins under. So can you, […]

Shine the Light

By on June 27, 2010

Coincidentally two of my readings today emboldened a theme–that God’s power lies in daring to shine when the world around is dark. The fear to stand out should be cast away, if you can share the good news of God and joy. This world is swirling with good and evil, with constant oppression and depression […]
