There is always hope
There is always hope

My dad was a hobby photographer. One of his favorite subjects was beautiful sunrises over the water. After battling for over a decade, he lost his fight against cancer in 2016. During his treatment, the one thing he always needed and sought out, was hope.

To me a sunrise is the perfect representation of hope… hope of a new day and new possibilities. Healing begins in our mind and is determined by our attitude. While fighting health battles, we need to hold on to peace, strength, determination and perseverance to face each day.

This painting became the inspiration for a mural I painted on the walls of an infusion center at Sinai-Grace Hospital in Detroit.

I pray it will bring hope, peace and encouragement to all who see it.

It was one of those days. I struggled through every part. My husband’s surgery that was delayed and then took longer than expected. The more than nine inches of snow that fell while we were at the surgery center. My son was on crutches due to an injury during gym class and the final straw, my daughter started running a fever. I was broken and hurting.

I sent an SOS text to several friends, asking for prayer.

Within a few minutes, one friend was dropping off dinner, another friend offered her son to blow the snow and another sweet friend called to talk and pray. I hung up feeling loved and cared for.

Later that evening I even had some time to paint. As always, I turned on my music and began choosing paint. Although it is not my usual color palette, I reached for pink. As I covered the canvas, I could feel the weight of the day melting away. The bright and happy color pulled me out of the mood I had been drowning in earlier.

Suddenly, my ears tuned to the words coming from the speakers.

“Grander earth has quaked before
Moved by the sound of His voice
Seas that are shaken and stirred
Can be calmed and broken for my regard

Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
Through it all, through it all
It is well
Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
It is well with me

Far be it from me to not believe
Even when my eyes can’t see
And this mountain that’s in front of me
Will be thrown into the midst of the sea

Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
Through it all, through it all
It is well
Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
It is well, it is well
So let go my soul and trust in Him
The waves and wind still know His name”

Through it all we can trust in Him!

First Light

 

Anyone can watch the sunset. It takes a special person to get up before the sun. While the rest of the world is still sleeping, there is a dedication that drives these special people to seek possibility, promise and the hope of a new day. There is something precious about being the first one to greet the new day. The air is sweeter, the world is quiet and life is more simple.

Little Things

“At times very small things may bring much more happiness than bigger and “better” ones. Look around you and notice things. An innocent toothless smile, a good laugh, a good movie, an old song bringing back memories of yesteryears, a warm embrace, a child cuddling up to you or falling asleep in your arms, prayers, a flock of birds in the sky, a beautiful sunrise or sunset and so on can bring a lot of joy. Unwind and just let yourself free. You’ll see beauty all around you; beauty that is uplifting and all encompassing.”

Simple Reminder

I tend to overthink and over complicate things. Life is stressful enough without adding more pressure. I often need the reminder to seek simplicity and calm in the midst of the crazy.

This isn’t our home

I’ve always loved to see the sun rays pushing through the clouds spotlighting different parts of the landscape.

To me, it is such a wonderful reminder that this is not our home. There is so much more ahead for us. We can enjoy the beauty of today and the promise of tomorrow.

A New Beginning

With each sunrise there is hope, peace and promise. The sunrise marks the possibility of new things. Each day is an opportunity to begin again. To make changes. To try something different. To find a new way.

Ordinary Moments

There are ordinary moments we will never forget. The sights, sounds, smells etched into our memory. The laughter as we dipped our toes in the warm water. The sun warming our faces. The wet salty air as the waves splashed on the shore. We discussed everything and nothing.

These ordinary moments make up the treasure of an extraordinary life.

Pursue

Now until forever

Jesus, I surrender

Show me what I don’t know

More of You

I’m desperate for Your presence

Longing to be with You

Lead me to a new place

More of You

-Pursue by Hillsong Young & Free

The lyrics of this song remind me of when Jacob wrestled with God. (Genesis 32:22-32) After wrestling all night, Jacob refused to let the man go until he blessed him. Jacob ended up receiving his blessing, but it was his pursuing and asking that led to the blessing.

In order to enjoy the blessings of his presence we must get alone with Him, seek after him with all we have, we must do the work and then ask for the blessing.
