The Morning Rise


I go to bed every night in hopes of a blissful morning

I am guilty of pondering the cup of coffee I am soon drink.

I begin to crave my time with Jesus before a run that I may take.

Its the bowl or plate of breakfast I can’t wait to make.

There is something about arising before daybreak.


This is a photo of me in deep thought about the dark chocolate covered sweet potato I had for breakfast.

The Morning Rise

Daybreak Rings

Sunrise Sings

Praises to His Name

Every Morn the Same

Do You Question its Rise?

We are Never Surprised

I Bask in its Wonder

Escaping from slumber

That I May Run in its Gleam

Of the Pink, Yellow, Red I am Keen

Arise in the Morn

See a Glimpse of Beauty from One Thorn

Artistry on Display

A Canvas for No Pay

Let us Gaze

Upon Such Glorious Blaze

Then they arose early in the morning and worshiped before the LORD, and returned again to their house in Ramah And Elkanah had relations with Hannah his wife, and the LORD remembered her.

1 Samuel 1:19


The Lord hears our voice, He hears our every cry.

I confess my heart hears Him most in the morning, as the tasks of the day lay before me untouched and incomplete.

I need to work on seeking Him more at night as I lay exhausted from strenuous thought and exertion of the day. 

I find the morning to be the most humbling and quiet time of the day.

This is why I chose to do my quiet time in the morning. I know others do theirs at night, what are your reasons if this is so?


Kabocha Squash filled Caffeinated Cocoa Oats

           SERVES 1-2

  • These oats will keep you energized and pumped until your next snack/meal, especially if you pair it with a cup of strong coffee. Which I always do. Cant skip the cup of coffee, I would probably die a sad and lonely death if I did.
  • Recipe Calls for:
  • ½ cup oats – not steel cut or instant
  • 3 tbsp. of dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup of almond milk
  • 1/4 cup of brewed black coffee at room temperature
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ smashed banana
  • 1 ounce of 70-88% dark chocolate
  • Baked Kabocha Squash
  • Instructions
    • Bake your Kabocha Squash in the oven
      • Cut lengthwise and bake at 350 degrees for 1 – 1 ½ hours.
  1. Put the oatmeal on the stove top, dry sauté for 1-2 min to create a deeper flavor in the oatmeal.
  2. Add the cocoa powder, almond milk, coffee, cinnamon, salt, half of the chocolate and the mashed banana with the oats.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil and stir constantly, when it begins to boil, lower the temperature to medium-high heat continuing to stir for about 2-4 minutes depending on quality of stove, make sure it is the consistency you prefer. I enjoy mine slightly sticky.
  1. Set aside on a cool burner for about a minute, pour the oats inside half of the kabocha squash which should now be fully cooked. Use the squash as your bowl. Top your masterpiece with the remaining chocolate and a sprinkle of salt.



If I still have your attention then you need to see this.

My heart has been truly burdened upon the observance of how I continue to stay single. 

I do not know why I am deeply burdened. I wish I could fully trust.  I have been showered with huge blessings these past three months, blessings I have not requested of the Lord. 

Though, the one request my heart truly desires most stays unanswered.

I wish I could see my future self and hear that it will be okay. I want to know the the one will pursue me and find me. 

Ladies & Gentleman, if you are with me and continue to not have a significant other, pray. Do not sit in doubt. Believe in His timing and He will provide. 

I believe.
