Reflections Before Bedtime #87

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today, I was reminded of a friend of mine. Maybe, it’s more appropriate to use the term ex-friend. We had a weird dynamic and a weirder falling out. We spent lots of time together. It was one of those friendships where you know how the other person thinks and his or herContinue reading “Reflections Before Bedtime #87”

Reflections Before Bedtime #86

By: Gabriela Yareliz I hope we can remember, as Job did, that God’s majesty is unsearchable… “By His power He stilled the sea…” (Job 26:12) Job basically says that as long as we have breath in us, the spirit of God is in our nostrils (Job 27:3). May we hold fast to wisdom and holdContinue reading “Reflections Before Bedtime #86”

Reflections Before Bedtime #85

A remix of what is in my brain… Don’t see yourself through the eyes of others. There will be times where others will think you have suffered a great loss, but you are actually winning. And there are moments when you look like you are winning, but you are miserable. Diane von Furstenberg (paraphrase) “ThoseContinue reading “Reflections Before Bedtime #85”

Reflections Before Bedtime #84

By: Gabriela Yareliz Excerpt from a letter to my mother earlier in the day: I was on the train, and I brought my Bible. I opened it and began reading in the book of Jeremiah. This is a man whose life scares me the most because it’s evidence that life can be so much lessContinue reading “Reflections Before Bedtime #84”

Reflections Before Bedtime #81

By: Gabriela Yareliz I just finished what is probably one of the best books I have read in years: Just Mercy, by Bryan Stevenson. Attorney Stevenson’s non-fiction account of many of the cases he took on to save people from execution on death row are haunting, memorable– and pretty much each story will fill your eyesContinue reading “Reflections Before Bedtime #81”

Reflections Before Bedtime #80

“I knew when I met her that she was so extraordinary and special. And then, I wondered if I’d ever get a chance to date her.” George Clooney being adorable. When I saw this quote of George Clooney gushing over his wife, I smiled. It’s not the first cute George Clooney quote I post. IContinue reading “Reflections Before Bedtime #80”

Reflections Before Bedtime #79

“It would be hung in attics, she thought; it would be destroyed. But what did that matter? she asked herself, taking up her brush again. She looked at the steps; they were empty; she looked at her canvas; it was blurred. With a sudden intensity, as if she saw it clear for a second, sheContinue reading “Reflections Before Bedtime #79”

Reflections Before Bedtime #77

By: Gabriela Yareliz I left my house and felt something was different. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, until I reached the intersection, while I was waiting to cross. I wasn’t wearing leggings; that was it! In the winter, leggings become a second skin, if you will. I wear leggings under everything. TheContinue reading “Reflections Before Bedtime #77”
