After 2 weeks without any days off, I gotta say I started my day off the right way. Did a show with two amazing ladies, got to talk and see my boyfriend and dogs, walked around town and took pictures of my favorite buildings, got my tickets for Hadestown and proceeded to make a fool out of myself in front of one of the people I admire the most, got to see a show and two very great artists and human beings, walked a bit more and took more pictures of my favorite city in the world, and ended the day with a nice hot shower and some Netflix & chilling.
I am very grateful and extremely blessed.
And tomorrow I get to see Beetlejuice!!! Happy Easter 😊

spending Easter in NYC
is more than surreal, but
spending Easter visiting
Brooklyn Tabernacle was
a very real and refreshing
reminder that Easter is
no holiday or just a story
the religious subscribe to .
the reason it was one of the
most overwhelming, intense,
terrifyingly beautiful, triggering
gospel message i have heard
is because the pastor reflected
on what Jesus mentally, physically,
emotionally, spiritually suffered
leading to his crucifixion. he spoke
in such detail of spurging and the
corporal reality of death by a Roman
cross that i was the only one left in
my row of ten by the end of the
service... no joke. though i too was
unsettled by the gore, i could see the
heart of the pastor, and even greater
still, the need for us to not shy away
from or be desensitized by the
suffering of our Saviour, the pain of
truth, or the cost of freedom.
Jesus endured that we may endure,
was rejected that we may be accepted,
was cursed that we may be blessed.
he did not die for himself,
he had no sin to be punished.
but for the sake of LOVE he suffered.
that we might live with him.
and as he rose, he raised up the new.
the old; dead, gone.
the new; alive, found
in Christ alone
