Experiencing Joy in a Struggling World

Yesterday, after awkwardly attempting to share the story of why I believe that our house was such a gift from God, I found out about 2 separate tragic deaths. Both are far enough removed from me that it doesn't really make sense for me to be grieving, but they really hit me hard. I found... Continue Reading →

Ecstasy

Have you ever felt so much pleasure that you thought your entire body might explode? Have you ever stopped being intimate because you were afraid you might not be able to handle what was coming? Have you ever submitted completely only to be racked by a painful pleasure that just won't stop? If you haven't,... Continue Reading →

Meadows and Flame

I'm coming to you once again today, Naked of soul in child's innocence, Robed in lavish scarlet of latent love, And dying for just one moment of truth. Years of whispering to the night sky, Yield to the flit of a deer's flaming tail, Turning to defy bloodied hunter's hands, At the iminent threat to... Continue Reading →
