When the lights go out…

It’s nighttime, the kids are in bed; Hubby’s asleep but will probably say he was resting his eyes once he wakes up. You’re all alone, just you and Jesus. Who are you now? I ask myself this periodically, to see if I’m still aware of me. Lately, I recognized that I’ve simply been reacting toContinue reading “When the lights go out…”

Letter to the single mom…

I was a cheater too…

Most women I’ve encountered can recall various instances of being cheated on and lied to.

Your lips press against mine and your words spill out of me.  Your eyes lineup with mine and you change my vision of the world, of my past, of myself.

Beautifully broken … A little deeper ( Day 57 – 100 Days of Singleness)

I had this really powerful message to deliver to you guys… But what I’m led to share with you is something a bit different than usual. I speak to you, not as a spotless woman of virtue.

Sacred speech…. or secret sabotage??? ( Day 13 – 100 Days of Singleness)

I’ll let the scripture speak…. “…..For I have heard the whispering of many, “Terror on every side! Denounce him; yes, let us denounce him!” All my trusted friends, Watching for my fall, say: “Perhaps he will be deceived, so that we may prevail against him And take our revenge on him.” (Jeremiah 20:9, 10 NASB)Continue reading “Sacred speech…. or secret sabotage???
