Drink tea, eat good food and climb a tree once in a while. And always brush your teeth twice a day, every day. And you'll never go wrong. ✞

It’s as if the heart knows something the mind will never come to realize.
No matter the distance, a vague sense of hope still lingers just as the Spirit did before the first dawn. Just as the Spirit will after the last. Always there. Waiting.
Waiting for the heart to move above mind, so it can learn that, to self, it must die. And only in this death can we truly be alive.
Resurrection can look a lot like death to a world that has forgotten the breath of life. Resurrection can look a lot like suicide to a world that has hung itself from ceilings made of opinions and false identities. Resurrection can look a lot like the pain and the suffering the world tries so hard to numb itself from with false antidotes of greed and power.
Resurrection looks a lot like what the heart knows and the mind will never realize because it is everything the world can not offer you and everything the heart knows it needs but the mind refuses to accept.

My dearest Arielle. You’ve grown me in ways I cannot begin to describe. You get me. You challenge me. You excite me. Now and again, in our conversations, I’ll tell you how excited I get just thinking about the way God is going to use you and where He is taking you. Sometimes, you’re not always going to feel like it’s the right direction or you’re going to feel a little stuck, but trust me He is always working. Sometimes we don’t look at strength as being a gift. But it is truly a gift to be strong in moments we feel like we just want to fall apart. Sometimes this gift will even feel like a curse. But my challenge to you is to meditate on what strength is and maybe look at what it means to be strong. A new perspective. Also, I miss your beautiful face in my life and how you make me laugh until my stomach hurts. I love you. ❤️ #portraitsofsa
My dearest Arvettetjie. You stir up so much inspiration in me I can’t even talk about you without a stupid “I’m so excited I could die” look on my face. The way you love. The way you give all of yourself to something greater than yourself. The heart you have is changing hearts around you and there is so much in me that you’ve changed and inspired to change. If i even get an ounce of the magic you have, I’d consider myself blessed. I love you. I miss you. Keep moving. #portraitsofsa
“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.” - Winnie the Pooh.
This week I want to set my intention to be that around patience and gratitude. To be fully present in every moment. It is my last week of my current routine, and in April so much will change. It took a while to get there but the river has finally taken me right where I need to be. And onward it flows.
“The line between good and evil runs down the middle of every human heart and the first thing you have to do is win that battle on your own territory.” - J.B.P
We were created, not to define good and evil for ourselves, but to live out the righteous way of a good Creator who had already defined these things for us. When we do these things for ourselves, by ourselves, we create a very dark world filled with confusion. Filled with “us” verses “the other.” We think, by defining ourselves as good and others as bad we some how form part of the solution, but the solution you have in mind, because you created it, is part of the problem. It’s hard to let go of self-righteousness, of opinions, but I think we weren’t created to have them in the first place. We were created to love, not to judge. We need to relinquish control in order for our lives to be empowered again. But this is all, of course, my own opinion. 😉 #ReturnToLove

“That which you most need will be found where you least want to look” - Jordan Peterson paraphrasing Carl Jung.
The best way to deal with fear is to face it.
I’ve expressed this fear before, and it is something @jabzsibiya and I will always share in common. We both just cannot face a life without our mothers. I wouldn’t even know where to start.
Do you ever get paralyzed by your biggest fears in some moments? How do you calm yourself down? Being a Christian, I won’t lie, sometimes I feel super guilty because you always get thrown scriptures like “perfect Love casts out fear” and let’s face it, it’s one of the most said things by Jesus, and then you’re sort of feeling like ok, maybe I’ve failed somewhere in my faith. Of course, perfect Love does really cast out fear. I’ve had extreme moments of the Holy Spirit lifting me right out of fear and into His grace. But it’s always a spiritual practice and all things need to be practiced, even not fearing is a practice. But I think it’s more to do with with practice of “be still and know...” In these moments, more than ever, I’m called to pray.
Anyways, lot of tears and anxiety filling up my free time today. 😅 thought I’d share it. 📷Thank you, @davidsaldia for this lovely photo of my mommy. ☺️🙏🏻
When the storm is over, you will stand. ~ Proverbs 10:25.
As with all things in life, everything all at once. When there is so much to fear, there is also so much to celebrate. When you’re drowning in the deepest oceans, you’re standing on the clearest lake too. When the walls are crumbling around you, you find yourself grounded on the strongest foundation yet. Life is full of these humorous and cruel paradoxes. All I can say in these moments, is let it happen. Let it all happen. at Drakensberg (Kwa-Zulu Natal)
Sister, you are going to one magical mommy. All of you is good and kind and loving. If you feel scared sometimes, just remember it’s going to be ok. Don’t try to hard to get it perfect. Be in the moment, always. They come and go so quickly. And know we are all here cheering you on. Love, your baby sister. at Kerry, Ireland

This road knows our feet well. It has seen us walk as far as our conversations would carry us. It has seen us run away from ourselves. It has seen us run into the arms of another expecting them to save us from ourselves. It has seen us tip toe around our fears and dance in our victories. It has seen all our falls, the scratched knees, the cut hands, the bruised hearts. It has watched us kick up dust in hopes it would hit the eyes of the people who wronged us only to see it whirlwind back into our own. It has watched us fall to our knees in desperate need of rest under the shade of peace only for us to be stuck in a desert without any trees. It has watched us take off our shoes in attempt to soothe the pain of the blisters on our soles only to learn our souls needed the soothing. This road knows our feet. at Ireland (country)
We stood in the confidence of something greater than ourselves. •••••••••••••••••••••

The way you guys are my #couplegoals. You treat each other with so much respect. Yes, with love too, but coupled with respect you get one strong relationship. I love how Ross treats you like the queen you are, @brigittadp. It’s so beautiful to watch you two together and it’s something I want to pay attention to in my own marriage one day. Happy Anniversary, Mr & Mrs Devine. #Mrandmrsdevine
“To love... To encounter another human being not as someone you can use, change, fix, help, save, enroll, convince, or control, but simply as someone who can spring you from the prison of yourself, if you will allow it.” ~ Barbara Brown Taylor, An Altar In The World.
I woke up this morning dreading what would be in my social media feeds. But following @stickylittleleaves, I found a new approach to days like these. She intends to be intentional today. Intentional in spending time with people and intentional about loving and being loved. What a gift it is to have friends all around the world who can teach you what seems like pretty simple stuff, but it’s always the simple stuff we forget. Today I want to be intentional about letting the women in my life know just how much I appreciate them for being the strong characters they are and for teaching me everyday what it really means to be a strong woman in this world. I love you all so much.
