Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.


Fresh Air


The darkened sky began to part

The covenant of God shined through

The majesty of God’s light beamed down

Soothing to this parcel of land

Healing to an earth in agony

The landscape breathes

The breath of God is fresh air

For a moment

I let my guard down

You struck quick and ferociously

My soul wounded

My thoughts woozy

But you should know

I do not fall easily

I concede this tiny victory to you

Tomorrow is a new day

God willing

Monday Motivation: Overcoming The Pain

We experience pain in different ways. Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

Some pain is beyond our control as our bodies and minds are tormented by physical and mental ailments. Here I am focusing on that pain that hits us internally in our spirit. People can hurt us intentionally or unintentionally, through their words and actions. We feel betrayed, cut deep in our soul and wonder why?  

There are different levels of gaslighting. Being berated and constantly put down by someone else until you actually start feeling like you have done something wrong or there is something wrong with you. This is a pain that aches in your soul and the ripple effects stretch across the mental and physical boundaries.

Sometimes we are not in awareness of this until after the fact and that makes the road to healing even tougher. My point today is we must not allow people and this includes family and friends, to put us down and tear away at who we are. We must not allow our personality, our character and inner being to be altered because of others insecurities, unhappiness with themselves or their selfish ego in believing everything is about them.

We must not allow this type of hurt and pain to keep us from living life and growing within. We absorb this pain but we DO NOT have to hold on to it forever. Find a healthy way of releasing that is beneficial to you in healing. Never give up on You even when others push you too!

Stay inspired!

You Are Always Love


I want more of what you have to give, God

A total makeover of spirit and soul

Undoing the wallpaper before my eyes

Revealing a picturesque new life

Mending my broken trails one by one

A now solid road I walk on

Enjoying the scent of the rose more

And feeling less the prick of its thorns

You know before I utter a word

Understanding the yearning in my spirit

I give you my all

Free falling into your love

A baptism

You are always You

You are always love
