HOPE. ( Darkness Has a Time Limit)

March 21, 2019 Hope. It’s so obscure sometimes. Like … how do you stay hopeful? Is it Friends that help you to remain hopeful? Is there a routine that’s involved? Is there something elusive about hope? Does a lack of it, make us cry? Make us sad? Is it reachable? How do you know when…

A Psalm For Refuge

I wrote a psalm . My first psalm ever. I thought psalm writers had all died and gone to heaven. 🤷🏽‍♀️ I never knew I could be one of them. Psalmists don’t usually know they’re psalmists until they lamented and sorrowed about something mighty weighty. This was me after we lost our mother in law…

Changed My Name, Change My Life…

I recently heard someone mention how names are so important. They said something like this: ‘Names introduce a certain ‘honor’ into your life when you inform people how to honor your name.’ So this blog piece is about naming and changing – and how changing my name to “Make Me Happy” when I went to…

The Value Of The Table.

If you have a table at home, it’s likely much happens around that table. Or, if you’re like me in the past few months, things have piled up on it, like books and magazines and … “stuff”. I’ve decided this year to honor my table, at home. It’s so dear to me. It’s been in…

Engagement. /Chaplain Contemplations

What engagement looks like when I’m in my passion. I love being in chaplaincy. It pulls something deeper out of me than I have ever imagined. What does this mean for my life? What does it mean for my future? That, I am uncertain. But I do know it’s teaching me a better way to…

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. Our desire is to reach for this, collectively. Some just wanted to be in a…

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…

HAPPY People are Healthy People

Just sharing on how Happy People Are Healthy People! #NthabiHappy  Happy people  do healthy  activities.  Happy  people  care about  who they call “friends”. They make  good choices  about who they spend their time with , and if those people are not  encouraging or   uplifting, they detach.  Happy  people  enjoy  good company of  those who pour  goodness…
