Hineni!: “Here I am!” 🌿
Just as He promised, Jesus has proven to be the “Great I am” in my life. My God is so faithful! He has always shown up for me, and has never left my side.
When I was alone and needed a friend, He said Nichola “I am” your friend.
When I felt abandoned and need a father, He said Nichola “I am” your father.
When I was fighting battles greater than myself and needed strength, He said Nichola “I am” your strength. ..and time after time he continues to show up for me. His Love and grace never fail!
And in response I’ve chosen that my life is not my own, and no part of me wants to be of this world. “Here I am, use me.” I’ve surrendered my life to be apart of building His Kingdom. And there is no greater freedom like it!
Through both the hill tops and the valleys I’m so blessed to not have to walk this journey alone. Thank you Jesus!

3657408545 3657408545 2018-07-16 As a visionary + highly sensitive person, I live in my head. A lot. And when the landscape is bright + beautiful, our home breathes deep. And yet, when the landscape is dark + misshapen, our home sighs under the weight. *
As wife + momma to this tribe of five, I understand that how I carry myself matters. That how I see and respond to things matters. And when the valley + stings come, that I recognize it and react in ways that are still fragrant in the fog. *
Yesterday, we danced. As forks + plates + crumbs lay strewn across the kitchen table, we found feet to floor. We laughed, moved and looked gloriously silly - together! *
The discipline of simplicity reveals that living light holds many keys. That even when the valley comes, we can choose to rise above, trusting that the mountain is still there. That laughter + praise + JOY are salt to the earth, disarming every action or thing that seeks to diminish. *
It’s Keeping HOME Monday here at the farm. A day where we remember to give thanks as we work to reclaim the atmosphere of house + land. To some, it might sound foolish. To us, it serves as compass, our North Star day. *
Find your feet on the floor today, friends! Turn up the music, fling your arms wild, and move to the beat - your people + place will be richer for it! * * *

24556712 24556712 2018-07-16 Always, God is in control. Every pain, prayer, tear......He holds them. Catches them all, and Hears. And NOT one is wasted. That night you thought you sobbed alone, or the relationship you thought you’ve never be able to recover from. The brokenness you have felt like you carried by yourself, to never be mended......HE HAS A PLAN FOR IT ALL!
I’m not a Heavy reader. I read occasionally. Hardly ever finishing a book, if I’m honest. But this Sunday I finished reading one of anniefdowns books. “Let’s all be brave”. Sometimes we have to be brave enough. I haven’t cried or LAUGHED OUT LOUD...LITERALLY! LOL that much reading a book, I going to go with, EVER. She was funny, yet serious, like a truly great friend sitting in the living room, encouraging me to be brave.
And her faith to be brave, nudges me to listen through the anxiety, and the lies, to the truth, that God is alway creating new beginnings. New mindsets, new heartbeats, new trusts, each new day.
