A Romantic Alexandria, Virginia Wedding

Written on July 12, 2017

Seeing a beloved friend find the person she belongs with is a glorious experience. Marriage, in my opinion, is the most romantic proposition of all.  Nothing  screams romance  for me more than committed, true love.  To pledge your troth to one another in the face of any future adversity is to whisper faith and hope into…

Gethsemane – A Poem and Mediation

Written on April 13, 2017

Tomorrow, He will be broken. Tonight, He wonders and cries, “Must this be so Father?” To leave this dusty world, these faces filled with trust, is beyond Him now. “I love them all Father,” as he thinks of each friend and their follies, their frailties dearer to Him than their strengths: stubborn, proud, envious, but…
