Hurt People Hurt People

I wish there was somewhere you could go that would make you want to thrive. There was a quote I read once, “There is a world within us all.” That world was created when you were a child. There were many factors that grew your inner-world.  Your parents, your friends, your school, your teachers, your…

Divorce Thinkings

It’s a word I play around with. I used to hear the word out loud and it felt like I was cursing. The word “divorce” feels heavier to me than the word death. Divorce. I went through a stage where every person I met I would say, “Hi, I’m divorced.” It was my identity for…

Biology of Love

I keep thinking about the biology of falling in love. I warn all the women I meet! I was serving a few weeks ago and made a potentially terrible mistake! I had run a woman’s card for another table. She wasn’t gone yet but definitely about to be to her car. I was in freak-out/calm…

Ugly Fruit!

The word says you will know them by their fruit.  You will know who is of God by their fruit. The only way to know if someone is probably “saved” is to get to know them. There is another question that comes.  How close do you have to get to know who a person is?…

Baili

She has brown hair and the most infectious smile. Her energy never ends. Baili. Her love language (I encourage you to read 5 Love Languages) is quality time.  If she doesn’t get that quality time, her little heart breaks. She says, “I love you” when she gets played with.  Her eyes light up, her heart…

Full of Nothing

I like to think about how what we feed ourselves matters. Have you ever eaten so much junk food and still found that you were starving? You are so full that you really can’t eat any more.  The stomach still churns. The body is still fatigued. There is no strength. The junk is in the…

Peace in Grief

This trip across America, I’d put it in my top three best decision’s list if I had a list. My main prayer in the past year has been, “Lord help me with my faith. Give me faith again. Give me faith. Give me faith.” I am not sure if faith is exactly what I was…

True isn’t Truth.

People are a reflection of ourselves. Suspend judgment. Sit. Watch, Pay attention. I feel projection come. I look at her and think wretched things.”  A whole list. I sit back. I suspend judgment. As I sit the “aha” moment happens. “Oh, I am not upset by you. You are not the cause of any issue….

Hey NYC: Wholeness Self-love or Chocolate?

Journal Entry from April 2017: I pondered “wholeness” on my walk today. There is talk that this might mean a person who heals from the inside out. I don’t quite understand healing from the inside out. I think about plants. They need a specific environment to grow and they just grow. I think about houses and how…
