Sink or Soar




It's not so much that we're afraid of change or so in love with the old

ways, but it's that place in between that we fear… It's like being
between trapezes. It's Linus when his blanket is in the dryer. There's
nothing to hold on to...


I bet flying would be scary. Soaring through the air, with no safety belts or rip cords... just you the sky... the ground.

What if, you suddenly forgot how to fly. Or you got hit in the head by a bird and rendered unconscious.

Flying, although exhilarating, could quite possibly be the most terrifying thing there is.

There are no certainties, no back up plans, no securities, and most certainly no restraints.

That's the thing about life. It is not meant to be lived in your plastic bubble protecting you from the elements.

Life is meant to be experienced. But we fail to experience life when we are too busy holding on to the things that weigh us down. 


A tethered hot air balloon may get off the ground, but its anything but free. Hot air balloons are meant to soar high in the sky... and so are you.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6

If you never let go, you will never fly. If you never take the opportunity to trust the Lord in the midst of your trials, you will never see that amazing things he has planned for you.



Sink or soar... it's time to let go.

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
