Life is so very fragile but Nate, yours was one of strength, Love and a genuine sense of marvel at the beauty of creation. I am thankful you shared that with a community too large for this room to hold yet somehow made us all feel like we were one of your favorite family members. So many great memories to be had by everyone that got the privilege of knowing you. Your legacy will never be lost on me.
It’s a bittersweet day. Today we mourn the loss of a dear man but in the endless calls of grieving, I find every conversation has ended with a huge smile in the same way that every conversation with Nate ended. Rest in peace Nathaniel Swope. Even in your final days, you taught us what it meant to dedicate oneself completely to others. I know your legacy of Love will carry on forever in your beautiful children and in the lives of those of us that got to know you, even for a moment 💕
Once upon a time I began wanting a new bass. I had all rationality and my heart set on a simple, affordable Squier bass that resembled a Fender Jazz. Queue a wonderful man (@ppaulten) who thought of me when a friend decided to sell some gear, a price half as much as the Squier would have been and you have the story of how the Lord blessed me with not only a brand new bass but my dream bass right down to the colour scheme. I have been in shock over it but when I went to pick up this beautiful guitar, it was given to me in a lovely SKB case that he threw in for free… I am beyond words! God is so good 😊 #blessed #bestdayever #personal #blessing
This time we ran around town with bags/boxes of groceries to bless people with! It almost doesn’t add up how less than ten people with a couple of bags could help so many people! I can’t get over it! #project928 #bestdayever #groceries #food #thankful #newfriends #KingdomArizona
In a season of life in which the Lord is specially reminding me that He cares deeply for every prayer and is faithful to the faithful, it came out of somewhat of a heavy heart that I had to really believe this is enough. Prayer is this personal moment in which we get to whisper into the ear of the Creator of a world we vainly attempt to carry alone on our own shoulders too often. I wish I could help everyone I meet but when the only thing I can do with 100% of myself is pray, I need to get over the foolish idea that it’s not better than something else because darling, it’s more than enough. In that moment, I am closely bending the ear of the One that created every resource I’d wish to give and the person I long to give it to. In no way is this concept complicated or new and yet I feel this in my heart today like it’s the first time all over again. When I pray, my God hears me and I know He will always make a way, be it through healing, a dollar or whatever is needed at the time. God, You are good and I am thankful I get to pray to You. #prayer #thankful
