One Way Loyalty

It is a mistaken belief that God requires our loyalty. Believing this makes our God a small and punitive God; He is the opposite. The truth about our God is that both His Love and His Loyalty are One Way. Because of our Father’s character, He loves us. Because of Jesus’ character, He bestows Compassion, […]

Living in Threes

“No amount of love can cure madness or unblacken one’s dark moods.  Love can help, it can make the pain more bearable, but always one is beholden to medication that may or may not always work and may or may not be bearable.  Madness, on the other hand, most certainly can, and often does kill […]

Unfolded

Unfold your broken, injured wings and let the Spirit set you free. We’ve all been folded, damaged, cracked yet healing waits a “yes” within.   As voice of Spirit calms and sings, allows you through God’s eyes to see a shining you where nothing’s lacked in order to anew begin.   With this relationship God […]

A Few Good Friends

I am lucky to find myself late in life with a few good friends with whom I can be completely transparent, completely myself. I am accepted by them not in spite of my weakness, but loved because the weakness is part of my whole; it makes me who I am, and I am seen by […]

An Extra Mile

This is how most people think of retaliation: heroes seeking and serving justice. The dictionary defines retaliation as the act of returning like for like, especially evil for evil; an eye for an eye. Synonyms for retaliation are revenge, backlash, resentment, entitlement, and retribution. Justice is defined as something quite different. Justice is the quality […]

Dear Mom,

On the Upcoming Anniversary of My Mother’s Death Dear Mom, January 30 will be the 28th anniversary of your passing. It seems like so many more years have gone by, so much of life has occurred and disappeared. The memories are so vivid of the few weeks before and the several weeks after. The terminal […]

Class of We Made It

How did I come to be a writer? I haven’t thought about this question in quite a long time. And then I came across the ‘Writing Contest: You Are A Writer’ held by Positive Writer.   When I look back at the intricate web that God wove for me to get to this place in time, […]
