Our leapard gecko Joey passed away in October. The kids held a special service for her outside. Maurice prepared a spot and we planted a flowering bush over her grave. It started to lightly rain just before we went inside and the kids spotted this rainbow. The felt for sure it was a sign from God letting them know He now had Joey. Talking about the death even of a leapard gecko is a hard concept for a 6 and 8 year old. I love the analogy of a butterfly. When it is a catapillar it’s just like our human body. When goes into a cacoon it undergoes a deep sleep. When it opens its eyes it more beautifull and amazing than when it had started out. At the right time, it pushes from the cacoon and flies into the heavens.
The History of Us

I wrote a story prompted by my writing group. It's about church, community and racism. Since I published it on my blog I have had so many people reach out with the same shared experience. It's been comforting. Then I found out there is a whole movement of people sharing their stories of leaving church spaces that refuse to respond to racism and injustice. Thank you @thewitnessbcc.

Too close? Just making sure ya'll see these curls. Had my favorite curly girl expert @torrensalicia cut the back of my hair (looser curl pattern) even with the tightly coiled girls at the top. Love the shape that was created. Ima release the desire of length for a fuller style. #curlygirlmethod #natural #innersence
Do not fear. Do not look at the seen but that unseen. Keep your eyes on things above. What is happening in the earth realm is not the end of the story. #kingdomminded #hopeishere #ihearthesoundofvictory #drybonesrattling #elevation
