Nietzsche’s “God on the Cross”

By: Gabriela Yareliz This weekend, we celebrate God’s intervention in the universe to save humanity. I couldn’t pass up this opportunity to talk about something that is deeply important to me– the most important thing of all. It is what inspires my life, my writing, everything… “Christianity is the only religion in which God suffersContinue reading “Nietzsche’s “God on the Cross””

Wings

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today was a beautiful spring-like day in NYC. Thank you, Jesus! I wasn’t outside for very long, but when I did step out, without a coat, I felt the sunshine on my arms. It was magic. I haven’t felt like that in forever. Thoughts of future warm, dark blue New York CityContinue reading “Wings”

Eyes on You

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today, I was studying the passage in 2 Chronicles 20, when Jehoshaphat receives news that there are armies coming to kill him and take the kingdom of Judah. In verse 2 he was told, “A vast army is coming against you from Edom…” We often receive this kind of warning in our lives, whetherContinue reading “Eyes on You”

Monday Inspiration: February 15, 2016

“To heal is to touch with love that which was previously touched by fear.” Stephen Levine By: Gabriela Yareliz Happy week to all of you, my fellow cold survivors. I had an amazing dinner on Saturday night. As we were walking outside, we checked the weather, and it was below zero temperatures. Craziness. It wasContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: February 15, 2016”

Monday Inspiration: January 4, 2016

By: Gabriela Yareliz Does anyone else’s week seem a bit daunting? Don’t worry. I am not going to sit you down, so to speak, in a dark, dusty study with the tick-tock of an old grandfather clock in the background and tell you my to-do list for the week, while I pace the floor. IContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: January 4, 2016”

Friday Glee: January 1, 2016

By: Gabriela Yareliz Good morning! Happy New Year! As we start a new chapter, I wanted to share some words that have inspired me.

Monday Inspiration: November 2, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz On Sunday, the NYC Marathon sliced my neighborhood in half. I kept wondering how I would make it to the other side. Then, when I needed to cross, the runners were gone and so were the barricades. Isn’t that how we spend most of our time? Worrying about things that will runContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: November 2, 2015”

Monday Inspiration: October 19, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s time for another week. It will bring its ups, downs and standstills. Sometimes, time seems to go fast and slow and then disappear altogether. It’s cold here now; winter coats, heater drying contact lenses and ear pain. Ahhh… A taste of winter for the soul. This weekend, I had a lovelyContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: October 19, 2015”

Sunday Girl: October 18, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz Figure out what it is you want and fight, fight, fight for it. Maybe, a lot of things in life are about seeing how far we are willing to go for something. There is no guarantee we will get it or even come close; and perhaps, along the journey, things will changeContinue reading “Sunday Girl: October 18, 2015”

How the Sequel Began: Part II

By: Gabriela Yareliz I was standing on the street waiting. I was waiting for the real estate agents who were supposed to meet me at that particular apartment. It was the day right after the traumatic two-day bar exam marathon. As I waited on the hot, sunny sidewalk, I observed the rundown but bursting atContinue reading “How the Sequel Began: Part II”
