on my heart

these past few weeks, my head + heart have been flooded with memories of long ago. it seems i have this uncanny ability to remember the smallest of details from back then. i love the details. but it is also proving to be painful, too, to re-live all of those precious moments and realize they are so far away from where i am right now.

i'm awestruck by the fact that it's been 8 years since i graduated high school.
the girl i was back then looks much different than the girl i am today. sure, lots of her is the same, but as time passes and things change and we endure loss, i think it is inevitable we are going to come out of those experiences a bit different.

i'm finding it's so easy to get caught up in the what-ifs. to replay scenarios over and over and to wonder how or if things could have turned out differently.
i do take comfort in knowing that i am exactly where i should be right now, according to God's plan. that everything in my life has happened because it was supposed to happen.

and i'm remembering to trust.

that's what i'm hoping for you, too, friends. that you remember to trust. xxo


  1. Does the sexism in religion do any good for the wonder that is woman? I'd argue that the labeling of a god under he and him have done more damage than good for the role of the female in the world.

    1. Not Claire, that was Brandon.

    2. Your art, lettering and choice of color is very enjoyable.

  2. As always, I love this piece. I've been going through a lot of the same things -- turning 25 this last October was hard. I know we are still young, but we've come so far... and for me, I feel like I still haven't done anything worth doing.

    So thank you for sharing and reminding me that He's got the whole world in His hands :-)

  3. This is beautiful. Simply beautiful. All the right reminders at just the right time.
