An August Photo Diary

By: Gabriela Yareliz Hello, friends. Here we are. At the end of another month. It has been one of a lot of growth for me, I feel.

Delilah #LoveSomeone

By: Gabriela Yareliz Delilah. She loves people’s stories, and so do I. Stories are my drug, and she is my enabler. It has always been like that. She gives sage advice, and sometimes, just a listening ear who comforts. For those of you who have been reading my writing for years, you have seen herContinue reading “Delilah #LoveSomeone”

Love Goes Deep

A lot of Christians out there say they have given up on the concept of the church. But what does that mean? They haven’t given up on the building and chairs. They are saying they have given up on people. People are flawed, and they will disappoint you. No matter what your personality type is,Continue reading “Love Goes Deep”

Success, Virgin Births And Ordinary Miracles

By: Gabriela Yareliz This past week, I was listening to a “Pocket Pardon My French” podcast, by Garance Doré, about the meaning of success. This is a word and yardstick that tortures young adults and adults, alike. It’s the stuff children’s dreams are made of. Garance spoke about how true success, to her, is knowingContinue reading “Success, Virgin Births And Ordinary Miracles”

Thursday Badinage: August 18, 2016

“For God is not merely mending, not simply restoring a status quo. Redeemed humanity is to be something more glorious than unfallen humanity would have been, more glorious than any unfallen race now is (if at this moment the night sky conceals any such). The greater the sin, the greater the mercy: the deeper theContinue reading “Thursday Badinage: August 18, 2016”

Monday Inspiration: March 28, 2016

By: Gabriela Yareliz From a productive weekend to, what I hope will be, a productive week. Happy week. We begin anew. Last week was absolutely dreadful and draining. Not sure how I survived it, but by the grace of God and my mother’s wisdom, I am still standing. It was a loud week; a headache-inducing,Continue reading “Monday Inspiration: March 28, 2016”

Hold on, for as surly as the warmth of the sunrise shall fall upon your face, so the love of God will pursue you till the end.” T.B.

Monday Inspiration: November 23, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz This will be a simple, no-frill post. I don’t have too much to say. I know. Rare. Maybe that is a lie, though. We’ll see how long this post ends up being. This weekend was pretty introspective. Apparently, I appreciate the art of making myself uncomfortable. So, after a weekend of lovelyContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: November 23, 2015”
