Lover of Jesus, people, science, traveling, pictures, good music, and dogs.
...I’d say I’d rather be, a functioning cog in some great machinery serving something beyond me....
Life is full of narratives. Every season is a story you can learn from and take with you. I truly believe God knows where you’ve been and where you’re going. He has the power to redeem all situations with your consent and faith in Him to do so.
Happy Mother’s Day to this dog loving lady. She’s the best mom I could have asked for. I am proud to be her daughter.
My college sophomore self would be happy I finally saw Odesza.
Sit. Stay still. Breathe. Don’t forget who you are and why you’re here.
The past 3 weeks have really brought clarity to me personally. I now have a greater appreciation for the field I work in. Every day I read pathology reports and input information related to tumor size. When my mom was diagnosed with a 137 mm mass in her pelvis, all that I had been doing day to day became personal. Now, she was the one being operated on, and now we were the ones patiently awaiting that path report. Glory be to God that her pathology report came back today as benign! Her mass was not cancerous! Thank you to everyone who has prayed with my family or been with us during this time. This past week will stay in my memory bank forever. I had an emergency appendectomy on Thursday, and she had this mass removed on Friday. Absolutely none of this was easy, but I am so grateful to God He allowed me to personally experience this side of medicine. When I do finally become a physician, I will take all of these lessons I have learned with me. I will always remember that every life you touch matters, and everyone is someone’s somebody.
Happy 1st birthday Sylvia! I am so grateful you were born! You have brought me so much joy already. I can’t wait to adventure through more seasons of life with you!
Happy Earth day! I love this place we call our home. I’m humbled by the vast beauty she holds. I want to spend the rest of my life chasing that beauty.
So grateful Jesus rose from the dead! Happy Easter!
After a long winter comes the first blooms.
I actually began to believe this about 3 years ago. I had a rough sophomore year of college. It was a year after I had begun settling into this new life mantra that I got this fortune cookie. I felt it summed up that entire year of struggles and divine triumphs in a few words. Now this sits on my desk to remind me from where I came. In life you are faced with challenges every day. A large part of overcoming those challenges are believing in who you are and who you can be. So if you don’t think you are good enough then that is where you will stay. So I challenge you to believe in yourself a bit. You’ll be amazed what happens when you do.
