Life, Writing

Strong Enough!

You are strong enough!

As we {finally} near the end, the year of 2020 will live on in our memories for many reasons. When we look back let us remember how our hope and perseverance got us through.

It’s not to soon to begin thinking about next year and what is needed…

Live Your Dreams!


The Secret of Strength

Jesus wept.

~John 11:35

Bull$√!+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.
What about you, who and what will you believe?

Love – a poem

crashes into our lives.
Breaking fragile hearts,
melting them from the start.

is swift and powerful.
Smashing the strongholds,
shining a light into the dark.

is soft and gentle.
A strong hand that so
tenderly holds a broken heart.

is grace and mercy.
An undeniable bold truth,
a blaze from one small spark.

is slow to anger.
Patient and forever kind,
always the best place to start.
