Not that He’s not always busy concocting up some miracles & what not, but I’ve just been really feeling it lately.

It’s been a tough like….year and a half lawlz. My struggles are no greater than anyone else’s. Just normal life stuff. But occasionally I feel like a tyrannosaurus rex has sucker punched me in the jugular and I just need a few minutes to wallow.

Then, God, man. He just comes on in there and shakes me up a lil, tells me to get a grip & keep going. Like, He has surrounded me with the most abundant blessings. I have food, water, a roof over my head, clothes on my back, a hella sexy hunk that gets me, and fab friends and fam. Tbh, that’s way more than I deserve, so why I BE COMPLAININ’ ALL THE TIME?! Through lots of prayer and reflection, I just feel like the Lord is planting a lil more peace up in me to just accept the plans He has and keep on keepin’ on. Hallelujah for our dope church that has helped us grow in our faith & just become all around nicer, less judgmental folks, too lol. I don’t talk about the big man in the sky too often, but it hit me a few months ago when a pal asked me if I prayed that I am obvio not doing enough if it’s not clear in how I live that I love Jesus with my whole entire ridiculously lame being. Prob because I spew negativity and self-hatred so much, but it’s called BRANDING, PEOPLE. So, just a reminder that there is a beautiful, kind, compassionate, forgiving, gracious, merciful, love bug of a God who thinks the world of you and wants nothing but good for you.

    OK, I’ve kinda accepted your vegan lifestyle. But if you start going door to door making a nuisance of yourself evangelizing to the masses I’ll get a court order and have you committed. K?

    Love this blog and the positivity and the need to remember to be thankful – including thankful for the great food you cook . I’m with you, Jesus is my main guy too and no shame in my game about it.
