I ONCE READ THIS LINE THAT GOD HAD A THING FOR CITIES.
That he started with a garden and ended with a city. I always really loved that idea because it made me feel like maybe me and God weren’t that different— that maybe we had pieces inside of us that actually matched up and made us right for one another.
If you ask me who I am these days then I will tell you straight: I am a girl who started with a city and plans to end with a garden.
A lot of people would tell you my story started in New York City. It started when I began leaving love letters all over the crooks of Manhattan and saw something really beautiful— a beautiful, little movement— coming out of my own loneliness and depression. I lived comfortably in the identity of “a girl just trying to find her way” for a very long time. I learned to hide behind my own story. It meant that I never had to let people in. It meant that I never had to let God in. But at some point being lost doesn’t cut it anymore, you have to be willing to be found.
I’ve changed my life completely in the last two years. All the creative writings on my blog chronicle that story. I write and create with an honest heart that is bending towards Heaven. All the things you read on these pages are really just a love letter for you during your victorious or tough days.
Cheering fiercely for you,
I hope you stay. Whatever thing you are standing in right now, I hope you stay and let the good work be done.
