Peace Lily symbolizes soul at rest, purification, and solitude. Orchids symbolizes love, beauty, and strength.
"Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." - Philippians 4:6-8
I've decided to donate 20% proceeds to, Ho'ola Na Pua Organization.

Walking into seasons not only brings us out of our comfort zones with fear, discouragement, and doubts. I'm certain we all have experienced in our lifetime especially now with the current events. It is so evident that people are broken or experiencing some kind of pain in their life. I had my fair share of all of the above in life. God asks us to do things that don't make sense to the eye. To go forth (for our good and his glory) into the unknown. This was probably the loneliest season of my life, though I was never "alone." There’s a certain time for everything... As most would dive into their craft, I also surrendered (paused) my side small business to focus on what He wanted me to. This was of importance to me.
Looking back, that season was much needed as I relied on people as my safety above His. It was an open invitation of adventure that lead us to unexpected places. In the chaos, God's goodness in our life shined above. Even when I sometimes failed to see it. In this time, God revealed things that came to light, also to bloom & work on in order to truly experience peace & light heart. In God alone, is the source of true joy, true peace, true hope, and greatest love known. We won't feel our highest 24/7, but we can have courage to keep fighting for peace by walking in obedience.
Beginning of this year 2020, a new season arose: motherhood! It is with great excitement for this blessing yet comes forth some fears. Especially in the current state of the world. My role shifted not only to wife, to also mother. Along with my husband, our new priority is raising our child to be a reflection of who Christ is and within our marriage. Making sure she is safe, protected, healthy and to say: strong in kindness and gentle in spirit. A lot is out of our control and we won't always do things right. We can only pray for guidance & wisdom to teach her to truly love herself and others in action.
Even though you may not feel his presence, he is always with you wherever you go. He knows everything. He knows what's in your heart. God brought us through every valley low and mountain tops. He will do it over again for you too, as you surrender what he's asking to let go of and walk in confidence. Knowing He is always on your side and has the very last word. So much blessings (even the tough times) as we wait on the Lord and invite Him into your life.
