away from the city


"i need to get away," she whispered, staring out the window. "i just need to get away."

the noise was too much. the people were too much. the buildings, scraping the sky, were too much. it was claustrophic. it was scary. it was too much. she just needed to get away. away from the noise, away from the people, away from the buildings that crowded out the sky - away from the city.

|| sometimes we just need to get away ||

a little clean up


have you ever felt like everything was just too... cluttered? that's what i was feeling like with this blog. like it was cluttered. and closed. i like simple and open. i think it more reflects what i write, what i've written, and what i want to and am going to write in the future. you know what i mean? i felt like too much was reflected on how the blog looked instead of what this blog said. i think all blogs should reflect what you want to say and everything, but sometimes a design can distract, in my personal opinion, from what it's all about.

anyway, so that's a little explanation about why i changed the design so soon. i needed less clutter. i needed more open. i might change it again. who knows? i can be rather crazy. but for now, this is good. i can do this. this is what i want. simple. open.

feel your heart open
close your eyes
lift your face
to the sun
feel everything
fly away
on the wings
of the breeze
that blows
through the trees
and let your hair
fly away from your face
and your worries be
carried far away
until everything
is gone
and there is only

|| peace and freedom. everything's clean. everything's gone. you're free. let your spirit soar in God's peace.

"We are all wild at heart"
it's not all 
in the same way
but it's true
 there's something
in each of us
don't let it
take control
of you
let it work
for the One
who is
the Lion of Judah

the waves are free

have you ever
just looked
at the waves
and thought
what is it like
to be so free?

light up their hearts

i stand on the roof
and stared out
the lights twinkling
i close my eyes
cities full of empty people
"not anymore," i whisper
i was going
to light up their hearts

you can make a difference.

lift your hands to the sky,

Danger:(n.) the possibility of suffering harm or injury.
i could smell it in the air
and see it in the skies
i turned and ran

snow flakes falling.
cold winter air.
red noses and hands.
breath looking like a dragon's.
warm, thick socks.
warming hands on cocoa.
my winter's about to start.

take a deep breath and smile,
