when the clock slows to fast forward.
to wrap us up in a memory that holds the sunrise of hope.
being able to let all the masks fall off.
to fall asleep.
fully present. in beauty.
full of beauty.
*This is my response to the challenge presented by Sarah: “Write a blog post about beauty. Your thoughts, your pain, your triumphs. It can be outer beauty, inner beauty, what you hate, what you love. Anything. Be creative. It can even be a single photo.”
**That right there. written above. that’s when I feel beautiful and fully me. nothing held back.and even though it’s few and far between my heart so wants to feel and find that “fall asleep home” that fully comes from God more often. because in Him is where I am full of beauty.
***So, what about you? What are your thoughts about beauty?

The last few days, I’ve been craving some face time with God. Sometimes I just need to get away and soak Him up. Fall in love all over again by discovering new things, learning more, and spending some quality time while letting Him woo me all over with His words. (Can you tell I’m a words of affirmation girl with a mix of quality time and then throw in gifts after that?)
Between work and life, I thought I wasn’t going to get this time until later in the week, but God surprised me last night. I went to a night of prayer and worship focused on healing (specifically for a family at church–which by the way–if you could join in prayer for them that would be awesome!). I walked away being refreshed and so confident. Confident that God is who He says He is. That I am who He says I am. That to be holy…to be set apart…means not devaluing yourself or others. Because, you know what? We are children of God whose bodies are a temple for the Holy Spirit. And in the depths of Your LOVE we find peace makes us whole. So, I’m running after His peace and letting go.
Have you spent some time face time with God lately? What’s He speaking to your heart?
