Goals for this summer

I am filled with hope. I think sometimes it’s a 50/50 shot with me. Either I am filled with hope and optimism, or I am kinda gloomy. It is the sad, sad truth of being human. As mentioned in countless other posts, I have undergone many changes in the past few months, even in the…

Ocean full of change

Always Flowers

Insane meaning wonderful and crazy… not like insanely bad or anything. But overall just an insane few days….

Blooming – Week update

The Lord is moving in mighty ways my friends, very mighty ways. This past week I was overwhelmed by the amount of care and love the Lord lavishes onto his people. It was like every morning brought a new wave of God’s grace, love, and mercy. The biggest joy I received this week actually came…
