I often pray for you when I’m writing. I pray that the eyes that read these words will find a deep joy, a healing, and comfort through whatever I write. I am thankful for you, and also feel a sense of friendship through the interaction and conversations many of us have had or will have. Your story matters.
There have been seasons where I saw nothing but darkness and wondered why or how I’d ever get through some times, but what I’ve seen now is that Christ has used what I viewed as broken or ugly to create encouragement for someone who finds themselves in a place where they’re seeking hope and light.
If you’re going through or have been through a season of drought emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, then you may know or see how that has shaped you. I’ve been shaped by those times and now can solidly say my seasons of drought have been the most “soaked in wisdom” I’ve experienced since my story began. I know that God brings beauty from ashes.
I pray that what you’ll find encouragement through my scribbles, tears, laughter, mess, and hope.
Thanks for reading!
Hi! My name is Tay Ruth. Here you will find the "scrapbook" version of my life. Kind of like my scribbles, thoughts, doodles, highlights, and struggles. I have a ton of different interests and you will see that all collected here. Anything from natural beauty, humor, faith, relationships, style, and my cat Roy G Biv.
“In all the world I have no one but you. Help me to follow you, even though it seems impossible. Help me to trust you as much as I long to love you.”
My fiancé, Luke, and I have noticed that when we may be tempted to go past our boundaries, God has protected us. At least we feel it’s God’s way of protecting us. Here is an example:
Get your popcorn ready, this is gonna be a good one. This is a story for, “what not to do.” I am willingly sharing our embarrassment to help you from putting yourself in this situation. Also, Luke has approved all of this.

Was waiting for sex worth it? After dating for over 6 years and not having sex, did it live up to what you thought it would? If you could go back and tell yourself all you know now, do you think you still would’ve waited?

So this week I did not have a blog pre-written that I felt was meant to go out just yet. I prayed a week ago for God to give me wisdom and help me to write about a subject. I thought about writing on thankfulness or joy and that’s what I landed on.
