heartforhugs It's been a whirlwind 48 hours filled with soccer, flights, and a professional development conference here in the Mitten. So grateful for the opportunity for self reflection and challenge with such marvelous colleagues. #travelgram #airplane #WTSTIM15 16h

heartforhugs "[Sacraments] reminded me that Christianity isn't meant to simply be believed; it's meant to be lived, shared, eaten, spoken, and enacted in the presence of other people." #SearchingforSunday by @rachelheldevans is speaking to my life in ways that have moved me deeper in love with my ministry again. I'm not even finished with the prologue and I'm finding echoes of her profound insights rampant in my life. This outing to the tulip fields is one such moment: lived, shared, eaten, spoken, and enacted. Sacramental living, where the tactile tangible world invites us to see God in the every day stuff of life. (And even in relationships with siblings ️) What are you reading and how is it impacting you? 3d

heartforhugs To sit and look in solemn morning, before the fog has burned.
Where sun clears the shaded lands, to light and glisten still meadows.

My dithering fades and loneliness ceases, hope is easy in this place.

Caught up in the morning Symphony where creation wakes, free and wild.

Softly and tenderly, the morning's music stirs the winds,

Listen silently, as each voice rises in the song.

Each breath of snow-filled-air dances on notes of wordless grace:

The Sabbath hymn sustained from the dawn of time.
(Poem Inspired by Wendell Berry) #morningslikethese #WHPdoubletake

heartforhugs “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind." -Job 12:7-10

heartforhugs It's blustery and rainy outside, so I'm inside sorting through photos from last summer at the Bruno Mars concert in The Gorge. This stunningly beautiful cousin o' mine with this light is one of the most striking images I've found. Can't wait to see what else I dig up! #makeportraits 7d

heartforhugs Summer in California doesn't compare with this spring weather we've had in Seattle, but it's still neat to photograph. Summer is coming, friends! #sunset 1w

heartforhugs Walking slowly, pausing often, a solemn reminder of shared humanity across centuries. "To dust you shall return" reverberated in my being. Joined by the hope and trust in the lyrics of Sufjan Stevens "There's no other man who could raise the dead. So do what you can to anoint my head. Oh God, hold me now Oh Lord, touch me now." The Pompeii Exhibit at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle was a proudly moving experience today. #TheologyNerd 1w
  •   heartforhugs @klascreative thank you! 1w
  •   fredsprinkle Super cool! ...kinda random question...as far back as you can remember, what do you think sparked your interest in theology/theological study? 1w
  •   robinjones165 Awesome exhibit, isn't it? 1w
  •   heartforhugs @fredsprinkle I love the random question! It's cheesy, but I have no other answer than the Spirit stirring that interest within me. My earliest memories (I was 4) are of looking through a Precious Moments Bible and seeing an image of two paths--the somber man in a robe went to heaven and the other man partied on earth? I told my parents I refused to go to heaven because I like to have fun with Jesus and that man looked too sad. Let's keep exploring this question though! I'm fascinated! 1w
  •   fredsprinkle @heartforhugs love that story! Thanks for sharing. 1w
  •   heartforhugs @fredsprinkle thank YOU for asking! 1w
  •   adamsoko love this 3d
  •   heartforhugs @adamsoko oh thank you thank you thank you! 3d

heartforhugs I've had the hiccups for the last 48 mins and they're giving me a headache. I've held my breath, hung upside down, drank water, yawned... And I can't jump out and scare myself or I would try that too.So here's some tulips. Here's hoping the hiccups will go fly a kite and leave me be. I'll try anything. #honestcaptions 2w

heartforhugs I have a serious case of the travel bug. Wanderlust for Scotland has hit hard. I'd be content with anywhere in the UK however. Where have you been itching to go lately? #wanderlust 2w
  •   supersangron South America in general. It looks like that will become a reality sooner rather than later. I'd love to get back to the UK and hope that works out sooner rather than later as well. NYC in two weeks.🏼 I totally understand though, pretty much everyone thinks Scotland is cool. I hope it falls into place! 2w
  •   heartforhugs @stef_krach seriously! 2w
  •   heartforhugs @supersangron oh I would like that trip too. I've not spent much time in Europe... 2 weeks in Amsterdam in 2005. But I have a friend in Scotland and I've read and watched Outlander recently which is reigniting that desire for Scotland. Plus, it's cheaper when you can stay with a friend 2w
  •   heartforhugs @supersangron also what?! When and where are you going? That's so awesome!!!! And have a great trip to NYC! (I have a trip for MI that same week) 2w
  •   supersangron Yes, staying with friends can make all the difference! That sounds great! I don't know where I'm going but I'm starting a new job next week and I'll be initially focused on the Americas although technically I could have to travel anywhere including Europe/Asia. It won't be constant but somewhat regular. I'm excited about NYC too, first work trip. 🏼 I will be expecting to see some quality car shots out of MI in the near future then!🏼️ 🏼 Enjoy! 2w
  •   thewildtraveller Excellent shot 2w
  •   heartforhugs @supersangron tell me more about this new job! And the trip to MI is for a conference, so not too much down time... But I will try to find a car 2w
  •   heartforhugs @thewildtraveller thank you!! 2w

heartforhugs Road trips, #mistyfoggymilkymoody goodness, some tunes, and these stunning views are cathartic. My quiet in the storm. A place to process my life where every thought becomes a prayer. A keen mindfulness of place. #Igers_Seattle_Tuesdaychallenge #chasingfog #finditliveit #igers_seattle #huffpostgram #livefolk #jj_forum #letsgetlost #livewashington #northwestisbest #nwadventurephoto #pnwcollective #theoutbound #upperleftusa #visualvoicemag #wanderlust 2w
