To: Fear

Fear. You’ve been in my life for long enough.  You flip my stomach and spin my head.  You drown my hope and blind my eyes.  You blur my vision of my destiny and choke me with your lies. I’m done with you. Advertisements

Mom

Mom.  A name that means so many different things to so many different people.  For some, it invokes feelings of nostalgia, for some, resentment, for others, gratitude, but mostly, I think, a healthy respect. Moms do a lot.  From morning sickness to childbirth, their strengths are tested and their limits pushed physically and emotionally before […]

Thank You: A Letter to My Mentor

I learned so much from you in so little time, and I don’t know that you were even actively teaching.  You were living your faith and any teaching of it was a bonus.  I caught it instead of being taught it.  That’s the kind of life I aspire to live: one so full of faith […]

Evidence of your pain leaked only from the windows to your soul; every other entrance had been shut down and sealed off.  You were […]

Full Circle: A Letter to My Mentor

Thank you. Those two simple words could never adequately reflect the depths of my gratitude to you.  I doubt anything ever could. I wanted to take a moment and let you know that I would not be the same person if you had not come into my life.  I wonder if I would be here […]

What God Spoke to Me One Silent Night

*This is something God spoke to me late one night when I couldn’t sleep that I’ve shared with several people and wanted to share with you.  Because He spoke it to me, there are adjectives/pet names that are feminine, but I have put a unisex counterpart in parenthesis next to most of them because I want males […]
