Chivalry Is Alive And Well

Chivalry Is Alive And Well

“Chivalry is not dead. It’s just sleeping underneath the layers of your past disappointments.” ~Audra Erwin Dear lovely sister-friends who profess that there is a shortage of “good men” “out there.” I beg to differ. I see examples on the daily of the goodness and glory of the masculine that I truly appreciate. We always […]

Holy Recognition

Holy Recognition

  I’ve tried it alone Sought help from authors with well-meaning intent and content that soothed but only for a moment I stood on the edge of my own faded glory Ready to leap only to dive headfirst into an empty pool The waters I’ve been seeking are holy and vast and not found outside […]

It’s Not Okay…

It’s Not Okay…

  It’s not okay to use your words to convict with contempt It’s not okay to spew the venom from the poison of your own unhealed hurts onto that of another It’s not okay to verbally punch with the fists of your tongue and then offer temporary flowers whose petals fall off just as quickly […]

Nature To Nurture

Nature To Nurture

Go into the woods and heal Let the tree sap become the salve that soothes your soul Let the soil beneath the trees root you in the foundation of your truth Capture the rain on your tongue and let it cause your wild spirit to dance Stand on a rock Prop yourself up next to […]

Forevermore

Forevermore

What do I do with all this love? Where do I put my heart when you held it in the palm of your hands? How do I breathe when all I want to do is cry? The memories wash over me in shades of your grace. Butterfly kisses from the wind fanned by your wings. […]

Heaven Sent

Heaven Sent

And just like that, she’s gone. Out of this life as I’ve known it. Spreading her wings and soaring into the arms of Jesus. Elevated beyond the beautiful shell that housed her soul for only a time. Blessed to have had her arms wrap themselves around me on the watch given to me by the […]

Emotions In Motion

Emotions In Motion

My heart is tender today. It feels somewhat melancholy. A mixed bag of feels, I let them all swirl around in search of proper placement. Just allowing it to flow through me in an effort to sort it all out. Just being with it and loving it in fact. It’s a beautiful thing when you finally […]

It’s Just Like Me…

It’s Just Like Me…

The other day I found myself saying, “It’s just like me to…” (basically attract a similar dynamic, yet again into my experience). I noticed the phrase as it came out of my head. “It’s just like me to…” As soon as I became aware of that statement, I grabbed my journal and started making a […]

Unconformity

Unconformity

I take a different approach I refuse to swim with the mainstream I don’t fit into boxes My spirit isn’t a one size fits all model Neither is yours I color way outside the lines Not to rebel but because I like the range My nature is far too expansive for the status quo and […]

When Forever Becomes Now

When Forever Becomes Now

An unexpected wave of tears came over me today as I read a message from one of my former classmates in our High School graduating class Facebook group. It wasn’t to notify us of anyone’s passing, It was to remind us of our 30-year reunion that is fast approaching. It took my breath away as […]
