Sweet Faith, Sweet Jean

What starts small can grow, filling you up completely and renewing life, giving a new direction. I know this. It happened to me. Of course, at the time I started, I didn’t know this, but just listened to an inner calling. Taking a step brought a complete change of focus. …

Cling to the Cross

Shouldn’t we all? Hold on, hang on, hug on, hope on...the cross. An all-in love. What a visual depiction…a little girl clinging to the cross. I took this photo two years ago. This little photo sat waiting, expectantly, for the right time. It didn’t call to me to use as…

Faith of Abundance

When I first started posting cross photos on Instagram this past fall, I thought I would do so once or twice per week. That seemed doable. Yes. And then, somehow, it naturally turned into five times/week. Along the way I wondered if I had enough photos of crosses - the…

The Road of Faith

The road ahead. It’s not always the easy path. But in life, for your ONLY life, why not take the chance? It takes persistence and a steadfast focus to listen to the beat in your heart. And to then follow that beat! And it most definitely takes faith. It’s your…

Raised Up Faith

This little raised cross. Torn marks cut deep all around leaving scars like I’ve felt in life.  But it doesn’t define me. The cross within me remains the stronger beat. "Raised up, reclaimed, repurposed, redefined, rejuvenated...stronger for the marks. That is how good the Cross is. Redeemed." I’ve learned that…

Brick Step Crosses

Do you ever wonder what you are missing, not seeing, or overlooking?  Things right in front of you? I do. This week is the first time I noticed these crosses. I’ve used these steps in my walk route for four years...4 years. For 2 years I’ve been very aware of…

Crossing the Road

This image was the start to my idea. I liked this photo and showed it to a good friend who commented: “I really like that.”  I said “I really do too.” Somewhere between faith and prayer, an idea came to me. Do something with these photos. March of 2016 I…

Faith Walk

Sometimes you don’t know how it's going to start. But it does. You start the “doing” without even really “knowing.” And then, along the way, a development occurs. An idea. Do you listen to it?  Or do you brush it off?  Does your heart keep chanting it to you? A…

A Showing of Faith

A Showing of Faith...it all begins with little steps. It’s figuring it out on your own and seeking out people to ask advice to learn…utilizing the community around. Why not ask? People can always say no. But...they can also say “Yes” and open a door. Take the chance. The power…

Faith In Action

I’ve learned that what starts small can grow big. An idea, a passion, or a little bit of faith. As you lean into, spending your time, your effort- mental and physical, your energy, it grows. Like watering the mustard seed. All it takes is a little bit every day. I…
