look over your shoulder

by max lucado

And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.  Hebrews 12:1-2

In Matthew 14:28, Peter took Jesus at his word:  “Lord, if it’s you, command me to come to you on the water. 

Jesus said, Come  And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.”

Storms prompt us to take unprecedented journeys.  For a few historic steps and heart-stilling moments, Peter did the impossible.  He defied gravity and nature; he walked on the water to Jesus!

But when Peter saw the wind, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me!”

Peter shifted his attention away from Jesus and toward the squall—and when he did, he sank like a brick in a pond.

Whether or not storms come, we cannot choose.  But where we stare during a storm—that we can!

SAG fashion recap

my absolute favorites from this past ceremony was the incomparable Michelle Williams in Valentino, Emma Stone in Alexander McQueen and Rose Byrne in Elie Saab. How absolutely stunning and individual do they look. I love when self expression is effortlessly pulled off. Love them!!
