Sometimes God is just funny. Like, I normally think about Him in terms of being loving, and gracious, and kind. Caring, and gentle, and intimate…but not really funny. Today, I had to literally laugh out loud though, because I realized, He really does have a sense of humor. The Guy is a straight up comedian.… Continue reading Do You Want a Cat?
I’m in Arizona right now visiting friends. The same friend I was maid of honor to just last year. The same friend who has relentlessly pursued me in the course of my grief and devastation. When I learned my mom passed away she flew in from Haiti within days. 1,633 miles. She was on a… Continue reading The Beautiful Challenge
I played with a friend last summer and every time I beat him. Every time. It may seem odd but I realized then that it wasn’t fun winning all the time. I realized it was because I wasn’t being challenged. Not everyone enjoys a challenge but I definitely do.
I stood in one of my favorite places. Panera. Not sure why but I’ve always found comfort in its wooden booths, warm fire place, and doughy aromas. At least, I have since grad school. This particular location was truly a reminder of my time in school because it was the very one I often visited… Continue reading Panera
I picked you up yesterday like I have so many times before. Still, it had been a while. You’ve grown and I had flashbacks of when you were a baby: an aggressive round little brown girl. I never had a brown girl of my own and even though I wasn’t chosen to be your godmother… Continue reading An Open Letter to My Precious Jewel
I admit I can be an impatient person. Even after all these years and all the tests God has used to develop patience w/in me, it is not my preference to wait. But in the world of getting to know new people and developing relationships, I have come to value a person that takes their… Continue reading Building Slowly

Hi guys! I think I’ve mentioned I’ve been branching out in my writing more. One of the ways I’ve been growing as a writer is by taking a poetry workshop. To celebrate the completion of our class we are having a poetry slam this Saturday! If you’re in the area I’d love for you to… Continue reading Poetry Slam!
I realize that I am an “all in” type person. When it comes to relationships, work, or any other project I dive in full force and do not loosen my reins until that thing comes to completion (go me). This character trait has helped me immensely in my career when in spite of 3 bouts… Continue reading Navigating The In Between
Its an interesting thing when your relationship with God changes. Well maybe interesting isnt the most accurate word to describe it. At least not for me. As is my normal this transition/change in season was pretty traumatic/dramatic. I did not understand the silence and the still small voice. I did not understand how after nearly… Continue reading Lessons In The Dry Season
