Thankful

Have you ever just took a moment to give thanks? Right now I’m watching my son, who should be asleep, giggle and play. Instead of being flustered because he’s not on a schedule, I choose gratitude. After all, he shouldn’t set the tone; that’s on the parents. There was a time when my heart was…

Waiting games

Today has been interesting. Constant baby squawking that tried to upend my theology. I usually get what I pray for—and I’m thankful! It gets tough sometimes and I feel like sulking in a corner, too. Being too emotional doesn’t fix a thing; it just keeps me from having the right perspective. Have you ever found…

Spring fresh

Once more the season of spring Belches out thunder and hail Lightning dances across the sky Internet squeals TAKE COVER to scrollers… Songs burst through my lips Praises saturate my being Worshipping the King, The living God—Lord of the Rain… Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the Lord’s thy God, the earth…

Winds of change

What happens when that initial umph subsides and you two become nothing more than that other couple you promised couldn’t be your future. Stop playing because you know what I mean. You remember how you got all cute an hour before he got home from work or how you used to actually listen to her…

Pit stop to pain

Watching tick tocks escape and I think back to when she was here. Dazed, confused, aimless, abused beautiful terror… at least that’s how I saw her No man wanted to keep her but they smiled in her face, like Babylon the great they went through her. Her eyes almost screamed unnatural agonies, obscenities, but someone…

The first 15

  It’s 1:28 pm, Wednesday, March 8th and I’m supposed to write about something, anything. For 15 whole minutes. It’s been such a long time since I’ve written like this. Truth is if I never did this, could I truly call myself a writer? Speaking of which, call myself. So, is this dream of mine…

Money Talks: Dollars and Sense

Listen! Getting this money in order is nothing short of AMAZING! You know what? We can pride ourselves on many things, and trust me when I say that I know this too well. Yet that pride is a killer. It’s also stupid. Think about it. Pride keeps us from reaching specific goals, connecting with different…

Is Your Faith Alive?

This past week I’ve experienced just about every emotion known to man. I faced fear, discouragement, sadness, happiness, glee, you name it. Why? I was facing some things regarding my son’s health that I’ve never experienced before. Some would just chop that up to, “young/new mom jitters.” I won’t downplay that, yet I think it…

Money Talks: Warring Together

We never thought marriage would be perfect. Yet, we knew we were perfectly suited for each other. My perfect accountability partner. Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.–Prov. 27:17 As we continue to become one, we’re facing head on all deeper issues, and it hasn’t been easy. Guess what? I’m…
