Poems and Psalms

Even though my poems about God are not necessarily the most eloquent or polished, there is something beautiful in the words I write as prayers. How many times has a prayer time, Bible time, turned into writing a poem to convey my heart that I then offer to God? These poems may not be wonderfully […]

Softening and Seeking

I am learning to soften. To be soft. I am learning to not let the world harden me, sprout bitterness within me. I am learning to be vulnerable, and to allow this vulnerability to grow. I am learning to embrace beauty rather than hide it. I am letting joy come from the simple things. I […]

open my eyes

There is a tree outside my bedroom window. It’s full of blooming, vibrant purple flowers. It’s the brightest purple I’ve seen in my life. (The photo attached does not do the flowers justice when the sun is hitting them in the morning. They absolutely glow.) I love opening my window every morning, I love that […]

Easter

Christmas is my favourite time of year, but Easter holds a special place in my heart. Easter is sobering in a way Christmas isn’t. Because though Easter Sunday is a day of celebration and joy as Jesus conquers death, there is the knowledge of what He went through in order to save us. As someone […]

Jesus / Poem

Someone once asked if Jesus died from a bullet. They knew nothing of a cross, of the torture that lasted hour upon hour. They knew nothing of the cost or the blood of the Lamb. They thought He died in a second, Not knowing He was born to be sacrificed. Imagine being crucified When you […]

A Dive into Independence

Time is a funny thing. On one hand, it feels like I’ve been ‘moved out’ forever. It’s very normal, even though it’s only been two weeks. While my time has been up and down (down being knocking my bottle of olive oil on the floor and spending twenty minutes trying to make the floor not-slippery) […]

the other side of myself

I wonder what my day would have looked like had I still been living at home. The tea would taste the same, probably. My stress over the start of this trimester at uni would be the same, probably. The knowledge that I have friends scattered in different directions is the same, most definitely. I’ve moved, […]

Something Will Happen

I find it bizarre to think about what you’re doing now, then think back to one year ago or five. Would that person have been able to do what you’re doing today? I’m in the processing of moving out of my parents’ house, and I don’t think even the Sarah of six months ago would’ve […]

Frustration Celebration

I was driving today. For about twenty minutes there was a long line of cars – me, in the thick of it – stuck in the overtaking lane. The left lane wasn’t as full, but contained some of the slowest drivers known to man. I debated hopping over to the left lane numerous times, but […]

Rain, Rain

I have a cup of tea, I can hear the rain, and I love days like these. There is something beautiful about a warm, sunny day. When you open all the windows and lie on the grass and drink cold water with lemon slices. But there is always a part of me yearning for that […]
