Is That All You Have?

Let me be the first to say that I detest grocery shopping. From the lines, insufficient registers, and crowds, I could do without all of it. Let's just say I try to avoid it at all means. I make every effort to get everything I think we may need every time I go because I… Continue reading Is That All You Have?

Hwy 43 North

Traveling in Unfamiliar Territory Tomorrow is my 43rd birthday! I recently traveled from San Antonio, TX to Shreveport, LA to visit my mom. This was to be a familiar 7-8 hour trip, a route which I have traveled several times. I plugged my mother’s address into the GPS, gassed up, and headed north on Interstate 35.… Continue reading Hwy 43 North

Inspirational Poems

You Are

From light breaking through the darkness of night, To the wind that gently breezes and guides a child's kite. From the heartbeat at conception as a sign of new life, To milk in the breast of a mother whose infant holds tight. From every inhale and exhale as a our lungs breath in and out,… Continue reading You Are

No. He’s a gentleman and wants to be invited in not forced. He wants to… Continue reading Invite Him

If we only had a heart, We would see human and not race, We'd understand that because of Our Father everyone has a place. If we only had a… Continue reading If We Only Had a Heart

Our Scars: Signs of Victory

Have you ever stood in front of the mirror and took inventory of all your imperfections? I have. Have you ever taken a moment to think about the story behind each of them? I can remember some of them quite vividly. On the other hand, there are some that I have no idea about where… Continue reading Our Scars: Signs of Victory

When…

When darkness falls, When things are still, When I've put up walls to hide what's real, When all seems lost and winds blow to and fro, When I'm backed up in a corner with nowhere to go, When deceitful lies bring tears to my eyes, When it becomes far too much to hide the pain… Continue reading When…
