Roots and Soil

'They will be called Oaks of righteousness, a planting of YHWH for the display of his glory." -Isaiah 61 The mighty oak, one of my favorite trees. Coming from a small acorn, which had to fall, break, root, and grow. Oaks grow slowly, at their own pace, yet they surpass many trees in their strength,... Continue Reading →

Hope

There is a wise proverb that tells us 'Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.' (Proverbs 13:12) As I was thinking on this verse the other day, I was thinking about some situations that are happening in my life, and the lives of loved ones, that feel... Continue Reading →

Abundance

On July 1st I woke up and heard the word clearly in my head- Abundance. I sat down with my journal and began to press into what I was hearing and feeling from God in this simple word, that could easily mean so much. I felt that in this time, there is an abundance of... Continue Reading →

The Sunflower

I have a small sunflower tattoo on the back of my neck, with the word 'Beloved' written in script. All of my tattoos mean something very deep to me, and this specific tattoo came from a vision I had when I was going through a season of inner healing, years ago. This was when I...

As we let go, it falls away Released, but never forgotten For the charred fruit of dreams left unfulfilled Will make way for new... Continue Reading →

This painting, 'Daughter', was lost but not forgotten, as it has been featured in my first book, Kisses of Eden- Poetry, Paintings, and Spirituality. I've always wanted to find this painting so I could make prints, and this week I have. God's timing is... Continue Reading →

Standing

In becoming who you are, you must let go of who you've been.  I heard these words this morning as I sat down with my journal and coffee. I knew God was speaking to me of many circumstances I've been dealing with since returning to a land I once called home. That little bit of... Continue Reading →

Open Doors

Open Doors was painted at the start of 2015. 2014 had just finished, and it was a year where I saw a red cardinal (or several) on almost every day of the year. This little sign of the cardinal appearing in my life alway came when I was having thoughts or worries about provision. I... Continue Reading →

Stand and Rise

I've been in a painting block recently. My emotions this past month have been all over the place as I felt things surfacing that haven't been dealt with, both in past circumstances and in the present time. It's definitely a season for me of learning to own my own voice, opinions, and beliefs. I think... Continue Reading →
