HIS hands

He’s got the whole world in His hands. the whole world. the world that doesn’t make sense. the one that doesn’t function the way we think it should. a world that’s perverse and fallen and broken. my world — the one that’s not been spinning correctly. your world and whatever you have that feels off, […]

Easter Bunny Craft

I am far from a crafty sort of person. Put a pencil, paper, fabric, needles, glitter, popsicle sticks — anything — and I won’t know what to do with it. I’ve tried sewing and can’t do it. I’ve tried knitting and can’t do it. I’ve tried drawing and can’t do it. I’ve tried painting and […]
