Presently, Afterward

It’s been awhile!

I am sorry about that my turkeys!

You may have noticed I have changed up what I write about on my blog.

I’ve had epiphanies of sorts. And have gone through some personal trials this past year. (Of which I plan on sharing life-lessons learned).¬†And I realized that while I made it through them, I’m not the only one, and decided to start posting encouragements for those whose own trials are….well, trying. You aren’t alone.

When I started my daily devotional today, I got giddy. A feeling I remembered I had lost during my recently ended relationship. Because while during the year I had drawn closer to God, due to the hardships of the relationship, it started to seem as though afterward everything with the guy, cancelled My Time with God out. It was a vicious cycle of cancelling each other out.

Today I realized that. And the end verse was specifically for that realization,

“Come near to God and He will come near to you..” -James 4:8

I am so divinely favored and not only loved..But I also feel divinely cherished.

 

Sugar, Honey, and Summertime

I’ve been thinking about small balconies lately. You know the type..

Small mini cozy balconies, 

For a small loft apartment above a little downtown shop.

Something about small balconies, at night time, with a small round intimate sized metal table, drinking sweet tea every morning

The mere thought of one, is so comforting and relieving.
I don’t want much out of life, because I have what I need. I have dreams for myself to work for and towards. 

Said apartment, a motorcycle to drive me to my dream job at the local aquarium. Free time filled with life and moments. Moments you find in shady and blurry photos with beaming smiles and movement, that you swear you can smell and feel all over again just looking at them. 

Filled with feeling, experiencing, and sharing God’s love, with strangers I pass on morning and evening walks every Tuesday. 

The nightlife air filled with live, raw soul music. 

And someone that never stops choosing me. Who loves and pursues me, but also who loves God more than me, himself, or air. Being each other’s home. 

Doesn’t need this or that in life, but just needs me and God, for a happy life. 

Would be perfectly happy without kids, just having a wife and a life filled with traveling, moments, filled with unexplainable raw intimate love. 

With the same childlike freeness, and goofiness that we bring out of each other. 
And at the end of the day, 

We make each other Better.
