Go forth and turn your when into NOW. Turn your intentions into ACTION. Focus on prayer, focus on people, and focus on purpose.
When I find myself distressed, upset, frazzled, unfocused, discontent, wavering in faith, restless or in conflict over a decision I try to remember to be still and turn to the Word.
Today, at lunch, I did just that and ended up randomly opening the Bible

So on Facebook someone asks me if I've seen a video that was posted and, if so, what I thought of it. Well, 650 words later, they knew.
It was in a private group I posted my opinion so I thought I'd share it for the whole world here. My thoughts and the video are mutually exclusive of each other but the spoken word video is what inspired my fingers to start typing so watch and read ...
AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!

I feel like marriage was not necessarily meant to make us happy, but to bring us closer to Him. I know that sucks as a theory but the state of marriage is one that requires more virtue and constancy than anything else in life. In our current culture, we are bombarded by images of romance as if romance alone can sustain relationships. But the idea that marriage can survive on romance alone,

I've been praying daily to find my spiritual gift. Because everyone has one.
Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness. (Romans 12:6-8, ESV)
Actually, let me take that back. I think I have always known that my gift is my ability to convey thought and emotion through writing. What I have been praying for is the way to apply my gift into a sustainable mission. That's how this website came to be destroyed and rebuilt. But, as those who have been around for awhile know, this site has been destroyed and rebuilt quite a few times in several different incarnations.

God gave us the gift of 86,400 seconds each day. I just want to take a few to just give thanks. I have so much to be thankful for. I am blessed beyond measure.

Earlier today I was inspired by one of my friends' statuses on Facebook. He basically stated that he came to a life changing epiphany that it was impossible to live a righteous life without God.
The emptiness of my womb
Presses against my heart
My breasts overflow with milk
My child is lost to me
Yet he is trapped within me
Held by my body's memory
How do I go on?
I see him in my dreams
Even when I am awake
They say time will ease the pain
I am still waiting for solace
I do find a little peace
Knowing he is beyond the reaches
Of my cruel world
I will never forget how I feel at this moment
I'm not quite sure that I'm still alive
I am supposed to be holding you forever
… Protecting you
Yet, I know in so many ways
I am protecting you…
From a life where you cannot be offered the best
And you my child deserve the very best.
I feel empty
