My Secret Swampland Home

I have found a place down in the swamp where the light is always magical and I feel like part of a Southern American fairytale.

by the river to pray

Donielle knew I was having a hard week, so she brought me coffee and a cupcake and dragged me out on a walk by the river. We stopped at one of my favorite spots, the ledge that looks over the river, and we sang hymns and prayed and talked about Jesus and the things close to our hearts.

I don't know why we don't take time to breathe in God more often.

Fair Weathered Part Two

I love how the magic of the fair transports me to a place where I am my happiest, my most joyful, my most giving, my most humorous, my best version of me. That's where the magic of the fair lies.

Fair Weathered Part One

Ryan and I went to the fair on Friday. My favorite ride is the ferris wheel, but I love the way the swings look, so he and I went on the swings first. The light disappeared below the horizon while we were on the swings, which you can see in these pictures.

Going to the fair with Ryan was amazingly fun. We both love the fair, so the whole time we sang about how we loved it, talked about how we loved it, and then rode rides and ate and saw a hypnotist. I have never been to the fair with somebody who loves it as much as me, so it was a fantastic night for me.

I feel like there's an extra dose of magic around when adults let themselves remember how it feels to be children.

A Walk Through Different Worlds

I have found that walking is when I do some of my best talking with God. Being in nature helps. I live next to a river, and I always go off of the trail to have heart-to-hearts with Jesus. These are pictures of my river and my beach and my special moments with my God.
