Simple Solutions

Sometimes, apparently, I have to bang my head against a brick wall for a long time – a long, long time – before the solution appears. /if you haven’t already picked up on it, the tone for this blog post is snark..dripping snark/ Sigh. Maybe I should replace “sometimes” with “all too often.” And let’s talk about how sometimes – ehem, all to often – it seems the solution is so, so simple. In fact, the longer I bang, the more simple the solution is… Maybe I should start praying about that. Lord, help me not waste time and...

Battling the Dark Side

What is your dark side? How do you fight for the light? Or, do you even try…to identify, acknowledge, face – and rise above? — UPDATE on DAD: He’s local. Like super local. At a rehab facility in Graham. So, if you have time to visit and feel up to offering encouragement, holler at me and I’ll send you the details. — He’s…IDK what to say…to him, to you, or to my kid. — Darkness is subtle.

Plethora of Prayers | July 22, 2018

When fear is behind me, and in front of me, how am I suppose to overcome it? — Coming at me from all sides, from a bloodline steeped in it and nurtured by its darkness, how can I begin to have enough courage to deny it? — I see it. How it has – over time – shackled those I love. How it tries to keep my child disconnected, in the darkness. How it feeds me doubt – An endless feast of doubts in my ability to love, to speak truth, to shine light… — I feel it. There’s...
