Greetings! Ready to not only survive Monday but to thrive on Monday?

It’s Holy Week and officially spring.




Spring make us feel like no other season. Autumn is cozy and romantic. I love it. However, there is something about fresh new air, soft rains and flowers. Rebirth is moving. Life is emerging. Spring will probably always be my favorite; it’s also my favorite because I am a spring baby. Spring and I have a special bond. It feeds my bohemian, free-spirit.

I remember being on my dad’s bike. There was one particular spring day when it started raining, and we rode past a bunch of blooming daffodils. I was in kindergarten, and he would ride with me on his bike and take me to school. Spring always reminds me of that. A blur of soft rain and bright yellow flowers.

Spring makes me want to shed the blazers and dark tights. I just want to sit on a dock by a lake, barefoot. *with no splinters, of course, in my perfect imaginary world*

More days in nature, and more sunshine (now that the days are longer) will give life to our souls, in the upcoming weeks. This week, let the beauty and life move you. I hope this week marks something new and different being born in your life. Let all things become new. Let life as you know it change.


“I am made and remade continually. Different people draw different words from me.” Virginia Woolf, The Waves


“I think there comes a time when you meet someone, and you just want to make them smile for the rest of your life.”



“I looked across the expanse of my shame, the ocean of disobedience, Christ took my hands and said ‘This is not for you to see; look to Me.’ I did, and I was made new.”

– T.B. LaBerge // Go Now


“When you pray,
your prayers are heard
by the same God who
answered Moses’ prayer
for water in the desert,
the God who gave Abraham
and his barren wife a son,
and the God who made
the slave Joseph second
in power only to Pharaoh.”
73/365 reasons to pray | Francis Chan



“If we are amazed by the stars and all the wonders of nature, can we not also be moved to tears by the grand composition that God is doing to us?”

Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.
Leviticus 19:2


“She doesn’t want to hear that she is flawless. She wants to hear that she is loved, regardless of the flaws.”



Step out in faith. Don’t be afraid to let God reshape you. May we be reborn each day. 

And remember, “These moments… are not to be despised. They come too seldom.” [Quote by Virginia Woolf]
