Creation Sings His Glory

Especially during fall, I cannot help but stand in awe of the beauty of God's handiwork.

Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons-football, Thanksgiving, cooler weather, and so much more. Yet, my favorite thing about Fall has to be seeing nature transform with the season.

Although we see the weather change and different flowers bloom in other seasons, I feel as though fall undergoes the most beautiful transformation. For instance, the gradual process of a tree's leaves changing from green to a warm red color is so mesmerizing to watch.

Walks in the afternoon are the best as the weather is that perfect cool temperature before everything is "bone-chilling cold."

My family and I used to go to the Great Smoky Mountains nearly every fall. I've always felt the closest to God in the mountains, but this is especially so during the fall.

Watching the warm autumn sun climb over the smoke-covered mountains provides a satisfying feeling that cannot be described; it must be experienced. This is one time of the year when I am motivated to wake up early to watch the sun rise.

It is nearly impossible for me to be in a bad mood when I walk outside and see the beautiful, auburn leaves drifting through the air with the evening breeze.

And the sky...The color of the sky in the fall is so unique. It is a deep shade of blue, and often there is not a cloud in the sky. When the sky looks like this, it seems as though the sky is neverending in its reach.

How could such a remarkable work just appear out of nowhere? I do not believe it can. The awe-inspiring facets of nature can only be credited to a Creator who is even more marvelous than His creation-God.

" The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork." -Psalm 19:1

God's fingerprints can be seen everywhere you look. From the rolling hills of the plains to the roaring waves of the coast, God has perfectly crafted each individual part of nature.

After a hard day or week, finding something to be positive about can be a difficult task. If this is the place yourself in, look up and look out at all God has given you, all that He has created.

There are many things to look forward to about fall. Acknowledging the miraculousness of each part of creation is something that I'll be

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
