Steadfast Faith.

Once upon a time I went to South Africa.  I never I swear believed such a  dream was possible. Sometime it still feels like a dream. But i did go! May 14, 2003. South Africa was actually a dream come true. Its the first time I realized I could hold God to His word, and…

“We Are All Like Trees.”

“We Are All Like Trees.” I’ll never forget how her face lit up when she said these words. I was in South Africa, Kuma, South Africa, in fact. I was teaching in a classroom of South African teenagers, and I was on cloud nine, (naw ….101..) Her words were so simple and freeing. Powerful, yet…

Identity in My Community.

Last night was amazing. I spent an hour and a half in community with folk in my church community. Some were members  of my church, and others were not. We all had three things in common: Purpose, Passion And Potential. We want to reach for this, collectively. Some just wanted to be in a like-minded…

Memories from My Moves…

I have moved  approximately nine times in my life.  I  know it sounds like a lot, but  several of those moves were  within state and  needed for job transition . Doesn’t make it any any easier, nor  does it make it  less of an issue.  I  have to admit – I dont really lke moving…

Developing An Identity is Like Making HUGE Spiderwebs.

Sometimes finding our selves is like making a spider web. It’s intricate, detailed, contemplative and sometimes involves a lot of work. I think I began this journey quite honestly, at a young age. Maybe even before age eleven. Eleven was when my life changed. My Dad decided to live differently. To become a man and…

Indwelling.

Indwelling. Is there such a word? I was reading today in the Word how being in fellowship with friends and others and also God-we learn how to be built up, and grow. We make more room for growth by allowing for friendships; and sometimes those friendships have a God-nature, if you will that comforts. That’s…

Acceptance & Receiving.

This very well may be first writing in 2018 on Receiving. I suppose if I set a goal, then by the end of this year, both you and me shall learn immensely about my one word. (So my first goal is to truly see where this precious word leads me!) I will say this, this…

Sisterhood.

Ok, so on the real… I desire sisterhood strongly. Haven’t let’s had it very good though. He. Lot of sister hurt, even as an adult, that kind of threw me the wrong  way .Messed me up. Yet I have survived.  

Remembering.

I am such a romantic. Misty greens and  soft  quiet  spaces where you  can contemplate. They are my favorite spots. With hubby in tow, and a smile on my face, There  I am in  hushed meadows.

Receiving. My Word for 2018.

Hey there, first week in January and I feeling like I’m on a roll, already! I’ve been doing a out of contemplating over the past two weeks an have found that being in the place of “Receiving “ has been very prosperous for me. Let me be completely  transparent about why this word is so…

Awareness & Receiving.

It helps  to  live  in this life,  being  self aware. When you’re self aware, no one can tell you what you’re vulnerable to. You are aware of it, and sometimes you tend to perceive that vulnerability as a strength. For instance, I’m vulnerable to the fact that I am a sensitive person. I am one…

I Am Enough Because I Am Wise.

I decided to write a new series about being enough. During this season of my life, I was in a  Celebrate Recovery group and sharing about feeling adequate and “helpless”. It was a process for me to discuss in group, because as soon as I spoke about why I tend to feel worried and procrastinate…

Finding My Voice.

I found a certain ‘release in life’ when I found my voice. What keeps us from saying things we really want to say? Well, oftentimes we may feel less than or we feel imperfect. We feel like no one really wants to hear what we have to say, anyway – so we don’t say it….
