The edits are complete and hundreds of pdf pages of words now looks like a real book. I am so excited to get this story out into the world. I pray it helps others dealing with grief to know they are not alone.

I admit in the time of uncertainty with the COVID-19 virus, stay at home orders, social distancing and the conflicting news reports I struggle with my own anxiety. Each day when I awake is another occasion to rise up as a warrior despite the fears that may come.
It is a time of not knowing what or who to believe. So, I will chose to put my trust in this…
And Jesus said to him, “‘If You can?’ All things are possible to him who believes.” ~Mark 9:23
Warrior Poets are those who train and fight for higher purpose. Warrior Poets become students of the art of war so that they may triumph when the enemy calls. ~John Lovell #WarriorPoetSociety #WPSN #Quote
Here’s to the fighters, the dreamers, the doers and those who will stand up. May we all find ourselves strengthen during this time and at all times. May we seek those who are hurting and reach out a hand. May we rest in the promises of the one who is yet to come.
Do not hide who you were created to be and do not let the world break you, for you are so much more than ordinary! ~M #Quote #Motivation #Encouragement #WarriorPoet
Piece by piece, day by day, little by little and moment by moment over the years until… there is nothing left. That is how the soul dies.
They will tell you what to do, who to be and what to say.
So, who are they? And why do we listen to them anyway?
We feel it isn’t right, but allow ourselves to stray from our truth losing our authenticity. We go through life in a daze hiding our strength, never letting them see us cry and then, there is simply this.
Is this a weakness, a failing, a lack of … something?
In our empathy we truly love and care for another with no ulterior motives. Only when we acknowledge our own fears and failures can we even begin to offer some of the better parts of ourselves. You have exactly what you need and someone needs what you have to give.
Acknowledge your fears, feel the sadness, celebrate the joys, love others relentlessly, believe in hope, grab hold of life and never let go!
He suffered scorn, he was ridiculed and mocked, bruised and beaten. He did not speak against those who mercilessly crucified him and he willingly gave his own life. He was strong, in ways that the world did not and does not understand to this day.
He stood strong against all that was evil and wrong in the world with an unfathomable compassion and love.
He refused to compromise the truth, and yet, when those he loved died he wept. He felt and expressed emotions deeply and lived his life on earth fully as a model for us to follow. If it was good enough for him, it is good enough for me and I refuse to believe or live the enemy’s lie.
