Dear 2017, Our relationship is over. Our parting is bittersweet but necessary. You have taught me so much about myself! I've been emotional, but I toyed with the notion of becoming numb again because "feeling" for my own sake hadn't been my usual if that makes sense. Whether it does or not, know that in...

Who this Lady Wants!
Funny it's probably been two months since I wrote most of this, but today God's given me permission to post it. I was tickled last week when my pastor mentioned an upcoming relationship series entitled "what a woman wants/what a man needs." I thought, SPOILER ALERT! It won't be the first time my posts and...

Forgiving and Forgetting is Not an Option Anymore!
A wound superficially covered will cause infection, but bleeding and allowing the wound exposure is often the best way to heal it. At least it is for me... True Forgiveness Requires Grief! It Requires Stages. It Requires that one face the pain of what happened and why it happened. It Requires Identifying who is responsible.... Continue Reading →
I hadn't had to use an inhaler for years, but last night I couldn't breathe...or so I thought. In retrospect, I understand that the last time I really took a breath was longer ago than I care to remember. I suppose I had gotten used to inhaling the toxicity of my yesterdays and so...

Single Lane Ramp...Use Caution! Lane Closures Ahead...Expect Delays...Merge Now! You might have found yourself involuntary acquainted with these signs on the road. I simply must add an additional half-hour or more to my commute to make it wherever lately. It's been a frustrating, yet a necessary daily process that the "powers that be" deem... Continue Reading →
Last Night I had a MOMent
On the heels of two blessings I was not expecting, the enemy tried again and thought he'd won, but never. I thank God for His word and reminding me that I have no business allowing the enemy to blindside me with foolishness. I was reminded that life and death is in the power of the... Continue Reading →
Love Blindly: Glimpses Through Tears
Yesterday I was reminded of "Glimpses" all day. Perhaps the reminders really began the night prior when I considered the manner to which I would do certain things from now on...whether I would really amp up the action behind the faith I claimed to believe. A message before I arrived at church mentioned how God... Continue Reading →
