The Poison That You Throw Out

Whether a word curse or a slanderous label

You throw it out there for all to see

Narcissistic traits to control what others believe

Hold on strong to your core values you say

But only when that means things go your way

Trust the process is the narrative now

When your agenda has been the process to seek

The need to manipulate the meek

Peoples eyes eventually open

And all are becoming awake

Your smothering will no longer be something to take

Microscopes on all you deem necessary

But the truly strong won’t let you make them grow weary

So enjoy your position while you can

Because when that rug is pulled out, you will no longer stand


When Fear Flees

The perfect fantasy

The perfect illusion of what Love is, come to the flesh

The perfect delusion to hold on to

The perfect feeling of now

A hope that brings life

Fear that crushes the spirit fled

Being the perfectly imperfect and allowing the imagination to hold the Hope

For nothing else brings such Joy

The love that is buried so deep inside that it has no where else to go but to flood our eyes

Tears will come and go

Make them the ones that overflow from the Happiness

Wait, Recognize, and Act

When all you can do is wait

When the ache becomes too great

When the lying causes so much crying

When you want to escape but there’s no where to hide

Close your eyes and start praying inside

Feeling his pain and the sword in his side

Bleeding out to protect us all

Knowing we’re all human and will fall

Grateful and humbled by his love

Aiming to be filled with purity like a dove

Paying his love and direction forward

Never ceasing, less being a coward

We will stumble and this he knows

Every time we get up the stronger the relationship grows

So dust yourself off and keep elevating

There is no time for debating

For us he gave his word

The beginning of knowledge is the fear of the Lord

Not Meant To Be Alone

Our society is not made for people to live comfortably alone (especially following the choices made by government after the pandemic began), however it was never intended to be any different.

Our culture was always intended to be that of community and support. “We The People” speaks to a “people” or “society” that comes together and unites. As a single mother I had the pleasure of witnessing this lately.

Yesterday marked a day full of physical, mental, and emotional highs. When life (or whatever demonic ball of flames) comes barreling at you and you have no option but to fight, block, or pause to plan your way around it, don’t think you’re alone.

We live in a world that notices things around us (unless you surround yourself with individuals that are too busy looking at their selfies to see outside of what they’re doing lol). I had the honor of witnessing this by meeting, speaking with, and working along side some of the most inviting people around and that reminded me of others I’ve had seasons with throughout my life.

When we take a moment to notice the people and their true nature, it can make the greatest impact on how you proceed with your new/future days. I was taught to always look for the blessings/silver lining and to be grateful for the things we have (as well as the progress we’ve made towards what the ultimate goal is). Having this embedded in my core has helped continue to make life happier and more manageable (even when it looks like it should be falling apart). I encourage anyone who has grown up in an environment or a timeframe that has pushed Hope, Faith, and Unconditional Love out of your daily life to evaluate or assess how you can incorporate it in (or back in if it had been lost for a time). Just be aware that it is contagious and will spread around you….therefore making others enjoy life with you as well (unless they choose to fall out of your life to the dark side). *little Star Wars humor for the geeks like me 😊

As we push through another day, I would like to say….don’t just Live, Laugh, and Love, also Play 🤣

Transphobic or Seeing Things From a Different Angle?

I began this blog with the country music scene in mind and put it down to think on it further. When I started to hear (and recognize) how this is more than a “clique” issue, I had to pick it back up. Now I’m putting it out to you.

Society is trying to change. Change should come up as a good thing, to help make something better. Take a step back and think for a moment…..has the CRT, BLM, inclusion, and other movements made anything better? Now sit with it.


Dear President, What’s YOUR perspective?

I was driving in a poorer area of Texas and saw a Hispanic man with a large alien attached to the grill of his car. It was in two pieces, as to have been decapitated by his vehicle. I began to think about the population of people who are here in Texas as second or third generations (maybe further back) who declare their patriotic symbolism so clearly with no apologies.

Mr. President, if people who have embedded DNA running through their veins that is of people who fought tremendously to come to a free country, still devoted to it and show that they do not want open borders…..when does your influence come into play?

It appears that no one allowed the empathetic residents of Martha’s Vineyard to have an opportunity to embrace the immigrants, allow them to thrive with the resources they have to offer, and continue within their community before a decision to ship them away was made. Who made that decision so quickly?

Are people actually being included and heard when making decisions in their own communities? You and your Vice President keep sending the message that you are all for inclusion and equality. If not all the people are actually being heard or allowed to have their facts, logic, opinions, and beliefs in any interaction that means something to them (I.e. their community growth and population)….then how does your message not turn into a big fat lie?

Just curious.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to reply (I sincere mean that),

Just a blogger with some questions

God Never Ceases To Amaze!

Isn’t it funny when you know your faith is strong and you still get surprised when God shows up? You can be at a tipping point and know that you’re pissed that God isn’t showing himself in your life. You may start to fall down into a spiraling rabbit hole, only to look up and be lifted up again before completely letting go.

That is God. He is miraculous is so many ways. That little voice telling you “Do not listen to that advice” when you’ve already gained wisdom from previous mistakes. Seeing signs that only God could show you in your walk/journey. That little acknowledgment of heeding our God-given wisdom then turns into a blessing, even when we are not looking for one.

It usually isn’t until after the blessing shows up that you realize….”Hey, I knew that was wrong, stayed away from it, clearly stated that will NOT be my choice in life because I know God would be disappointed in it, and now this great thing appeared”. Coincidence? I think not!

I’ve never believed in coincidences and from time to time people try to argue against me. Here’s my point of view: If people who believe they can make life occur on their own free will and energy, without the help or guidance from something greater than them…then couldn’t someone more mastered or skilled in life alter their choice as well (whether it be out of envy, jealousy, or pure evil intentions)? After all, if we have so much power to control our lives, then we could attempt to control others as well. On that same level of thinking….I believe God has the best intentions for us ALL and with his guidance I can bypass or avoid unnecessary evils that do not bring me to the blessings he has (because he is bigger and more masterful in all his ways than anyone on this planet). Therefore, he doesn’t do things out of coincidence (or malice, like people could, whether intentional or not). He has a master plan. If you are off the path of his plan (because of your free will), then instead of seeing a coincidence….maybe you should see a sign (like “Caution Ahead, Stop, or Slow Down” to see why it caught your attention in the first place). Then remember how amazing God is, even when we forget, he will remind us when we stop to listen.

To know God is not just knowing or believing he exists. To truly know him takes effort, like you would give any relationship. Learn about him. Grow with him. Read about him. Give him time, energy, and watch him give it back to you. Never stop being surprised with the great gifts that you don’t expect, but do, just because he loves you back!

If you need help finding God or a place to start your journey…reach out and I would be happy to find the proper resources in your area.

Tired or Depressed/ Lending a Hand or Hand Holding

I saw a post yesterday stating that a response of “I’m good, just tired” is a red flag to the beginning of depression. As someone who was diagnosed for years with MDD (Major Depressive Disorder) it made me think about something.

My eyes have been so heavy from working hard and not sleeping much lately AND depression is the LAST thing on my horizon. Why would anyone assume that a natural response to working hard and lack of recent sleep equates to depression? I have loved the moments I used outside of sleep to do what I love. I slept shorter hours by choice. It brings me joy and was a temporary use of an area that will be replenished in the near future. Does my past automatically dictate my future because that is the “norm” now?

If the normal response these days is to fall into depression because day to day life is just too much to handle, then maybe it is time to make some serious adjustments and stop allowing todays culture to tell you how you should be responding! This was the only solution to “beating” my depression years ago and not looking back.

One reason for this post is to share (from my perspective and experience) that I appreciate the “Be Kind” movement that has flooded our society and become routinely heard. However, I would also like to see people take a step back and not give excuses to irresponsible choices to abide by this new kindness culture.

We all have choices to make each day and sometimes we will make the wrong ones. Being kind and caring to others and ourselves is important when we need a hand to help us up, as we dust off, and keep going forward after making those incorrect steps. On the flip side, if someone chooses to lay down and not get back up regardless of the helping hand that has been extended…..THAT IS A RED FLAG. Please then use the kindness you’ve been graced with to guide that individual to a qualified avenue of help (maybe that is you, maybe it is not, only you can make that decision).

My hope is that this clears up any unnecessary flooding of people into mental health services and/or accusations of individuals needing such help. Lending a hand does not mean hand holding. Let’s leave that latter to happy couples who intend to walk side by side through it all.

Just another Truman Show

I hear the stories

I see the news

Not much has changed

It gives everyone the blues

Why bother talking

When no one listens

The only ones rising are those that glisten

Sparkle like diamonds

Shine in the light

But when you look inside

Death is the sight

Forgetting how to be human

Only thinking for the material

Loosing all sense of what is a miracle

Maybe they have never witnessed

Gods hand in their life

Maybe they have never noticed the true strife

I look up in amazement

Knowing it will all be ok

And that God is not far away

Grateful for open eyes

And beyond the illusion

Praying that each day more will come out of the delusion

Relaxing and letting go

After all, it is just like the Truman Show
