on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

"I have loved you with an everlasting love." -God

As I run out the door, I wanted to share this awesome quote with you (above). It's become one of my favorites. It is a verse from the Bible - somewhere in Isaiah, I believe - but I'm not sure of the reference. I just think it's amazing to think about. God, the God of the universe, loves ME with an everlasting love? One that will never pass away, never fade, never die? Wow. Now THAT is cool. :D

He loves you too with that kind of love. Don't forget that. :)

Everlasting love. It's yours.


  1. SUPER cute template! I like it better than the one I was working on. *embarrassed grin** And, you should put that quote permanently on the top of your page! :)

  2. Lol, now I see that you DO have it at the top of your page. I just like it in the purple text bettah. ;) <3

  3. Wow, amazing template! Again...I must say A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

    That is an excellent verse ~~ It is indeed wonderful to know that he has an Everlasting Love for us... so wonderful!

  4. Wow, I love your background. Like, INSANELY. :)

    Thanks sooo much for the comment! Yeah, I was BeccaTheGreat. :) I was so excited to hear from you again! :D I'm so glad you like it. :) I've really began to embrace my passion for writing and the like.

    An awesome verse. :) It's so true, we can't even imagine loving someone with an unconditional love ourselves, and so to imagine that God, the creator of heaven and earth, is going to love us with a love we can never possibly give back to him is mind-boggling.

    Thanks again for the comment, and great post (I'm following your blog now :) )
