*Current song to listen to while you read this... Toby Mac - 21 Years* Today marks 3 months since you left us. While I know you are in a much better place and are no longer in so much pain it doesn’t make it any easier. Especially around this time of year. I was supposed … Continue reading I Failed You
It's a sad realization that while we often remember many of our "firsts" in life we tend to not even realize that our "lasts" have come and gone. We take life for granted and assume that we are promised a tomorrow. Sometimes tomorrow simply doesn't arrive. Sometimes it's in the literal sense and your physical … Continue reading Just A Bit Longer
Life is settling in so I will have time to update this moving forward. To be continued by the end of this weekend...

Do you ever feel as though when you stop talking the world goes quiet? How is it that the silence is so much louder than words? It can often be deafening. Sometimes even music won’t drown out the noise. Just listen. Kyle
I should be praying tonight instead of writing... It’s remarkable how quickly you can be reminded of how fragile your existence is. Or how suddenly you can be halted in your thoughts on your place in this world and your importance in other people’s lives. Have you ever watched a planned building demolition? It’s absolutely … Continue reading The Fragility Of The World
I’m going to be honest outright and admit that this subject is one I struggle with. I have such a desire to love others, but I still have moments where my heart loses out to my mind. But what is love? Sorry not sorry if that song gets stuck in your head. Love can mean … Continue reading Why Do We Struggle With Love?
Warning, this is a very serious post about a mental illness that I have. It is not to be treated as a light subject in any way. Honestly, this post has been in my head for awhile now, but I’ve been dreading writing it down and giving it life. It’s a side of my life … Continue reading All I See Are Funhouse Mirrors, And It’s Not Fun Any Longer
