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 can't wait to meet him face to face. And when we do, I think it'll look a little something like this piece of concept art. I long for the day when we'll be reunited once more. But until then, I'll just wait, falling more and more in love with him each day, and waiting until we're together again.


  1. Mmm that is SUCH a beautiful picture. I love how you explained why that's the picture you chose...I often think, "How incredibly cool would it be if Jesus was a big fluffy, huggable lion??" But then I realize, He's going to be so much greater than we can ever imagine :)
    Awesome thought-provoking choice of art, friend ;D
