Does God speak to you? Does He speak audibly, to our hearts and through His Words? I was pulling out of the parking lot anxious to drive straight home and relax after a long day at the office. Although it wasn’t audible or out loud I heard God encourage me in my heart to drop another gift card on the young Mom’s porch and also add a potted flowering plant. I followed God’s gentle urge, and although exhausted I was strangely energized as I hauled my sweaty and probably not so fragrant self to the HEB. I was filled with joy as I placed the beautiful heavenly scented potted gardenia and gift card upon her porch. I later shared at bible study and together we filled a big wicker basket filled with gift cards over the next week. I may never meet this young Mom but she is now on my heart and I’m open to God leading me to place whatever He wants me to place on her steps.
Walking peacefully beside Shoal Creek, a creek I’ve walked beside for most of my lunchtimes the past five years, a giant light green insect landed and attached to my upper arm.
I could not shake it loose and had to scrape it off my hulking bicep with my plastic gym card.
I enjoy the path because two resident falcons often sweep past into the depths of the creek on the hunt for a mouse.
Where was my falcon friend when the stink bug attacked and would not let go?
Sin. It will attach to you, and it will leave a scar behind.
I’m looking at a 5-inch scrape that’s bleeding, and it will undoubtedly leave its mark at least for a while.

Being cooped up.
I’m an outdoor girl.
Mothers Day or my birthday are usually a day of canoeing, hiking or horseback riding.
Studying for my big exam this spring I missed taking in the grape kool-aid (mountain laurel) air with honey suckle top notes.
The scent of flowers and birds singing all calm me.
My coursework of memorizing laws and regulations kept me from my daily visit to the creek to breathe in the fresh air-conditioner free air.
Stepping out for a few minutes this spring, a young gentlemen from the next building whistled out the mocking jay haunting melody making me laugh.
I must remind him of a much older Katniss Everdeen.
Getting out of the routine of being outside scares me. Spring seemed to rush by without me noticing.
Don’t be scared… go outside.
Every day I like to do something that scares me.
Choosing faith over fear, I went to work at a friends firm in Austin.
It scares me.
I’m scared in a good way.
Praying all day I can stay razor-sharp and accomplish as much as I can for our clients.
I am not commuting or working alone.
You have not to do it in your unaided strength: it is God who is all the while supplying the impulse, giving you the power to resolve, the strength to perform, the execution of His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13
In a nut shell my work encompasses being a tenacious problem-solver for each person I meet throughout my day and doing it with excellence.
