"You shall know The Truth and the Truth will make you Free."
-John 8:32


The Truth:

It changes the lens through which we see ourselves and look upon others

It is the grid that filters out fear and fosters faith

It is the answer to the deepest longing emanating from the center of our soul

It lifts our chin and allows our eyes to unflinchingly meet His,

For what we see there, is the Truth that makes us Free:

I am Loved.

Loved like crazy.





With Fierce protection and Firy fervor

With unabashed bounty on every side.

He delights in me

Is over the moon about me

and digs me with over-the-top abandon...

He yearns for me when I'm not near

And runs to embrace me when I return,
((before I can even get a word in edge-wise!))

He loves my sleepy-head and my coffee breath which accompany our sacred space

He longs for me,
loves me,
lived for me,
died for me.

That, my friends, is The Truth
The Gospel in a nutshell. 

That is Freedom.

"...that you may be able to comprehend what is the width and length and depth and height—to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God."
-Ephesians 3:18-19



  1., so, SO well said:)
    Loving the art and the crisp clear truth
    and the heart that splashed it all
    out on these walls
    to nuzzle spirits
    like mine:)
    Oh thank you thank you
    for this!
    Love and freedom to you,
