This Girl

I am lulled by cricket songs and low voices and the Milky Way. Beautiful things make my heart explode so I feel it – messy and beating – inside my ribs. I find I love words, and they wrap me inside with fire and dreams. October and I understand each other just so, and we fall in love thirty-one times a year.

Fresh air and firelight and quiet revive me. Jesus and my husband and our joined families find the deepest places in my heart.

I’m G – just a twenty-something trying to love more selflessly, and fight for the precious, beloved sisters caught in human trafficking. I’d dearly love to catch a Frisbee better, read more stories, give encouraging smiles more often and take longer walks.

Here’s to creating, learning and loving.
