The edge of glory

Confession: There’s a Lady Gaga song I haven’t been able to get out of my head lately. I read about the song first before hearing it. Mother Monster apparently shared that it was inspired by the death of grandfather and was about looking back at one’s life in the final moments – on the edge […]

There are some dreams you pray with every fiber of your being never to come true. I had been thinking along this theme of beauty and brokenness for weeks. I couldn’t shake this feeling that I was only scratching the surface. I fell asleep one night asking God to take me further. We’re on a […]
