When flowers look like fireworks...
Today marks five years since I made this city my home. So I took myself to the Ryman to be serenaded by Harry Connick, Jr. Happy Nashiversary to me!
Nothing inspires, challenges, and moves me quite like watching my friend be the amazing mama she is to her pride of lions.
Cathi, you have more grace in your pinky toe than I could ever muster in my lifetime... So please keep rubbing off on me. I need all the grace/Cathi I can get!

It doesn't even matter if it's a brown lake with power lines overhead... Sand and water make this island girl's heart happy.
This man is my hero.
The very first trafficking victim he rescued was HIS OWN SISTER. And he's helped find and free over 300 more since then.
His story is up on my blog, along with a video that sums up my time in Thailand last month. Would you take 5 minutes to link over and learn more about human trafficking and the vital work of @theexodusroad? (Link in profile.)
Sometimes it takes a (drastic) change of scenery to remember... It is well with my soul.
