life matters

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” ~Isaiah 40:31

    ~ the first sip of coffee in the morning ~ the smell of rain ~ the random acts of kindness ~ the smell of freshly-cut grass ~ the morning mist on untouched fields ~ the starry nights ~ the shy smiles ~ the cooked breakfasts ~ the “drive safe” texts ~ the smell of aContinue reading “….it’s the little things….”
  • A Lonely Voice
    Loneliness is a powerful state – it can either destroy you or create you. We live in a day where believers often feel very alone & sometimes even lost on the path of life – I admit that I find myself struggling. The world is filled with wickedness, and this can often be an extremelyContinue reading “A Lonely Voice”
  • Who Do You Trust?
    You trust your doctor right? (Well, at least most of us do). You don’t challenge and question everything the doctor says. What about the pilot, on the flight you are on? You wouldn’t climb on the plane in the first place, if you didn’t trust the pilot. It is safe to say that most ofContinue reading “Who Do You Trust?”
  • The War on the Inside
    I think it is safe to say that we all have our favorite place, if it is in our heads or in real life. And when we go to that favorite place, being it a created place in our minds, or a real place, we memorize our surroundings- after all the surroundings is what madeContinue reading “The War on the Inside”
  • A Legacy of Memories ~ Kruger National Park
    Our surgery block wrapped up a little while back, and a mid-year break was a welcoming treat. So off to the Kruger National Park, South Africa. Let me start by introducing the Kruger National Park. The Kruger National Park (KNP) is the largest national park in South Africa. The vegetation is breathtaking & varies fromContinue reading “A Legacy of Memories ~ Kruger National Park”
  • Pieces
    ~ You’re one of God’s puzzles Your life is a giant puzzle you’re trying to solve – each moment representing a “piece” of your life puzzle. You collect all these “pieces” – moments – and try to build a big beautiful “smiley” puzzle, thinking you’re in control. But then life hits, and shows you, youContinue reading “Pieces”
  • Getting by with a Smile
    When life gets tough – learn to smile. When it feels like pain is literally leaking out of you – learn to smile. Being able to smile through life’s curve balls thrown at you – might just give you a little bit of happiness. Even though your smile might be fake, studies have shown thatContinue reading “Getting by with a Smile”
  • Life in the waiting room
    ~ Waiting on God ~ “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” ~ Psalm 27:14 Just as a patient will wait in a waiting room to see a doctor- expectations already formed inside of themselves- we often find ourselves, at times, waitingContinue reading “Life in the waiting room”
  • Before it’s gone
    “Later” Talk to you later. I’ll call you later. See you later. We’ll take pictures together later. I’ll reply later. I’ll tell you later. We leave everything for later, but forget that “later” does not belong to us. Later, our loved ones are no longer with us. Later, we don’t hear them and we don’tContinue reading “Before it’s gone”
  • On God’s Time
    I was reminded this week yet again, that life is short….even being young doesn’t mean you are “immune” to death. A very special bank account is given to each of us, by God, the moment we are born. Imagine for a minute, 86 400 dollars are deposited into this account every morning. Sounds amazing doesn’tContinue reading “On God’s Time”
