Heart’s Content

Here’s to you and me and in between.

My lips give into a slow smile when Brandi’s voice invites a quick dance– plain and simple, I like this song. I like the rocking quality of Brandi’s voice, the way I picture a sailboat’s sway throughout the rise and fall of each line. Love will find a way. Even in the mist, even in the in between.

Truth be told, I am at once a cynic and a hopeless romantic. It’s a rough dichotomy, I know. I break my heart before you can. But in this time of daffodils, when April is the cruelest month,* I turn to these love songs. Not because I’m in love, not because I necessarily want to be, not because I’m avoiding it, but because I crave the smell. A quick sniff, a sigh, a moment to sway in the breeze of possibility satisfies a brief soul-cry, reminding me of the line ahead.

slight disclaimer: please don’t read into any of this. they’re just some thoughts on a pretty little diddy. enjoy a little love today.

*my literary allusion of the day to T.S. Eliot’s “The Wasteland.” be cultured. you’re welcome.


A Few for Friday

Sometimes I find interesting things. Pinterest, conversations, and thoughts litter new ideas in my mind. Each one grows and collects in these cramped ignored corners.

Losing good things in those corners frustrates me. Maybe that’s why I currently have 21 open tabs on chrome (yikes).

In attempt to organize the clutter, I’ll share a few of the things I’ve found, created, loved this week. Enjoy!

{Inspiration to work on creation} [found at the freepeople blog]


{Reminders to choose joy every morning} [found on Pinterest]

Hannah Brencher’s blog. Soul filling and heart growing. Read it- it inspires all of our twenty something hearts.

A call on 20-somethings.


{whew-hoo. how tough and marvelous and spectacular and hard and gorgeous is this thought: To hold another heart gently. To not hurt, but heal.} [found on Pinterest]

I could spend hours reading Converge Magazine. This article was my gateway…. check it out!


Finally, 2 Corinthians 13:11

Finally, brothers and sisters, REJOICE! Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.
