My view tonight. . .Happy Easter, friends.
HE wore the scars of MY mistakes. HE was the One who carried my sicknesses and endured the torment of MY sufferings. It was because of MY rebellious deeds that He was pierced and crushed. And yet HE endured that punishment to make ME completely whole. It isn’t fair. It doesn’t seem right. It doesn’t even make sense. But since that’s what He did, the least I can do is give Him my yes. Yes. Yes. In every area of my life, yes. . .He WILL get what He paid for. And if all I ever do is endeavour to comprehend that kind of love (even though my finite mind cannot), it will be a life well spent. 
#THANKYOU #JESUS
One of life’s greatest freedoms is realizing you have nothing to prove. You could never fit in any mould because God shines far too brightly through you to be confined to such a small space. Are you a work in progress? Sure. We all are. But, just be you. Unashamedly, confidently, humbly, unapologetically, you. And, whenever you can, celebrate those around you, so that they can be empowered to shine, too. I hope this encourages someone today. 👊🏼
If you follow my social media feeds long enough, you’ll notice that I rarely (if ever) post in the moment. It’s long since been my practice to enjoy the moment, reflect on it, and if I’m compelled to do so, post later. That said, here’s the view I was absorbing last night 📸
Views this morning. I need to watch the sunrise more often.
The last of the ice as the lake finally breaks free. Just a reminder that both in weather and in life, winter seasons may seem long, but they can’t last forever 👊🏼
Current mood 😂

You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. —Psalm 16
Here we go!!! #besttimeoftheyear
So, yeah—I’m working on some things.
I was trying to find a new notebook I bought recently, and came across another one I hadn’t used yet and had forgotten about. As much as I believe this to be true, thankful for the reminder today. . .be encouraged! 😁
