The Beat of Forgiveness

So the other day I had a moment...of hysterics some might say...of desperation others might insist...of uncertainty and humility I admit...still so relevant is my peace...calm in this storm...helps me rejoice in the ability to slip on shoes I hadn't worn before. This place Am I meant to remain? Am I to go there? Confusion... Continue Reading →

My Father’s Letter

Excerpted from my upcoming memoir... I remember when God first bid me to meditate on Corinthians 7:10. It was after the inevitable. Following what had become our norm, I’d chosen my way out. HERE WE GO AGAIN This time the verbal assault ensued on a Friday, but the pain of my husband’s perpetual disregard of... Continue Reading →

Embrace Your Greatness!

You have permission to be great!!! You are great! You have gifts and talents no one else has! You're a rare find! True Humility is knowing your limitations and having an attitude of gratitude for the help provided. The opposite of that is being overly self-sufficient.  I was addicted to being "self-sufficient before!" I only... Continue Reading →

Just Ask

It's simply baffling that this post did not come to mind before now...a time when I should be sound asleep so I can be at least partially present in church later...yet, if I must be honest, I know why it had not occurred to me before...for the same reason the obvious has escaped me time...

Just Rest

Stop. Pause. Focus. Slow Down. Listen.  For at least three weeks now, it seems that those words are the directions that I have been given.  Yet, I haven’t truly understood or embraced any of them fully until this moment. suppose I should have gotten a clue when my student advisor said in our meeting, “I...

In fact, I... Continue Reading →

So I’ve finally broken up with my past…

For years, I blamed my mother for my lack of happiness as a child and in some ways even as an adult. I hung onto those feelings so tight that I believed they were just another part of me- something I couldn't get rid of no matter how I tried. I mean why else would... Continue Reading →

Because I love you

"Because I love you" It was a simple response. One I received a little over a month ago, but also one I wasn't ready to grasp at the time. It wasn't in response to a "why" question; rather to a "how" one. Not long ago I found myself in tears sitting in my bed surrounded by darkness crying... Continue Reading →

Follow His Lead or Get Bitter Results

Boy have I had the time of my life on this little roller coaster, LITERALLY! No I haven't gone to the fair yet...that's scheduled for this weekend, but I mean this Emotional One I've been riding for way too long. Methinks tis time to exit this ride!     Had a Shakespeare moment! Have you ever... Continue Reading →

The Few, The Proud, The Moms?

Since I embarked on this journey to fully employ the Fruit of the Spirit in my life, oh have I been tested! The past few days have been a plethora of circumstances that anyone else would assume it's perfectly okay to "lose it." In fact, I laughed in Bible-study last week when my pastor mentioned...
