2014 has been one crazy beautiful year! It has been a year of being intentional about loving others & myself well, choosing to be rooted here in Houston, allowing myself to be stretched & taking risks on me as I have taken some pretty big faith leaps.  Each day provided opportunities for me to learn new things about love, life, courage, forgiveness, release & truth… just to name a few.  Let’s just say, the journey of becoming all that your core knows you have been created to be truly awakens the soul. 2014 has also been a year of meeting & connecting with many creative hearts & minds in Houston that inspire… Kendall Hanna, of Kendall Hanna Photography, is definitely one. This week I got to be in front of her camera, for some author photos to go with a few upcoming writing projects I have on my plate for 2015. It was absolutely delightful.  She is brilliant at her craft & makes it fun.  Looking forward to sharing more from our time together as the year unfolds. Here are a few of my favorites for now… View More:    View More: picView More: View More: More:    View More:

“Look at that cup, Old School! What do you think?” I was so tickled with joy and delight in her creation. I remember the day she would not even give touching the clay a second thought, and now she is making one to two cups every time she sits at the pottery table.

“Well, you know… I think it’s alright. (brief pause) The bottom is a little uneven around the edges. It’s good though,” she replied with a convincing little smile.

Hearing the conversation Abbie, the pottery teacher, began to tell Old School ways with a little water, a sponge and time she could smooth edges and make them even. Old School listened and then she said, “Oh no. I like it like this, being that I made it. You know?”

Once again Old School unknowingly became a speaker of truth and grace into the life one who is a perfectionist in recovery, whose imperfections are often a source of deep sadness, insecurities, fear, avoidance… just to name a few unhelpful responses. Ha.

Her words echoed in my head all day long though… I like it like this being that I made it all.

What a beautiful day it will be when the words not only echo in the head, but in the living as well.
