A Blessing for Blossoming


Let Your name be often on my lips.

I long to be a bringer of your kingdom,

to walk in Your ways,

to bear Your fruit,

to be, in a way that delights You.

Open my eyes to my abundance

and let me regard it with care,

that all You have offered me might be enough to satisfy.

Surround me on all sides with Your presence

that I might be safe from the enemy

and from my own flesh and failings.

Call me to forgiveness in every place I hold bitterness or resentment

and enlarge my spirit to respond with courage and openness.

May I bring Your light, Your love,

Your belovedness

to all the places I go.


This project is just me following a nudge. A nudge that reminds me how much attention God is paying to me, that He would build this dream for me out of mostly nothing. The becoming, the belonging, the's all covered in this gossamer thread of my Creator's adoration, my whisper of a longing for more of Him heard and answered. Continuing to be answered, in fact. And a taste of this only invites a hunger for more. More of His presence, more of His joy, more of His community of people who are finding their longing hearts made whole in the heart of the Father. Because I am unique and cherished, but in this I am not special. You also are unique and cherished and have a place made for you in His heart. It has your name on it, and when you are absent that place is empty. This is not general admission or SRO: your spot is your spot. He longs for you to be melting into it, even as you go about your days. He misses you when you are not there. The theology of this website is simple. God: the very good Father who calls us His own. God: the Son, Redeemer, Reconciler, and Restorer, inviting us to walk with Him in His rhythms of grace. God: the Holy Spirit, with whom we are submerged into union! (Matthew 3:11b TPT). Amazing, right? With us, around us, speaking to us in our daily comings and goings, our walking around life with God. And we need our beloved community to share it with, because in this life, life in the heart of the Father, companioned by the Son and unified with the Holy Spirit, there is love, joy, peace, and a bunch of other delicious, life-giving fruit but there are also these glimmering, gossamer threads of a new adventure. And if you've found me here, I am grateful, humble and maybe just a little surprised.

Welcome! Welcome to this beloved community, friends. Let's see what God has planned for this blossoming little bud.
