It’s been a harder couple of weeks.

There have been some difficult hours and He has never hidden from me, nor allowed me to hide for long from that which (or those who) could speak healing over me. I’ve been struggling to see my needs as valid – okay, truthfully I always struggle with this. Every.day.

Perspective of Posture

“Remember me not as I always was, but how I could sometimes be.”       I wrote that sentence early in High School, it could have been Middle School actually. I’m fuzzy on the details.             I wrote it with the notion in mind that it could be what …

I wanted to have so much to say.                  Words and anecdotes pouring out of me. And I think the sentences are in there. Tucked away but bouncing in anticipation.          Sometimes I just can’t pull them forward. Sometimes the words just stay squeezed in …

Trying to Turn from Lost

Sometimes I don’t even know where to begin. Credit: Nick Page        There are either too many thoughts swirling inside my mind, or an absence of seemingly everything, save the echo of unattained wisdom.

5 Minute Friday – AWAKE

It’s been a while since I’ve joined up with Lisa-Jo and the many other writers who celebrate Friday for a writing rejuvenation. It’s 5 minute Friday time! It’s a place where you’re invited to take 5 minutes (actually take a timer out and let the minutes tick to 5), take the writing prompt word, and …

Last night I was able to rejoin an in depth study into the Word, where this semester, basics are being revisited. Last night’s topic was prayer.

The Fear of Dreams

*A comment of mine on an (in)courage post. While writing it, while it poured out of me, I realized “I should declare this more than once. Perhaps it may keep me accountable to seeing truth, recognizing walls and self-restrained leashes, and to trying to continue rather than stop dead in my incomplete tracks. For whatever …
