It is not weakness to accept that you lack the capacity to do something. It’s actually strength.
The journey of a Christian is not an easy one. There are many lessons to be learned, much growth to be done and many tears to shed. But in the end there is joy! With this blog I expect to share my lessons, my growth, and my tears that you may be encouraged.
February has come to a close and I realize this has probably been one of the most beautiful months of my life. After years of struggle it finally feels like I’ve broken through and am now in a time of peace. Peace with God and peace with myself. I now see that because he is … Continue reading The Goal
2022 is over and I’ve honestly never been so glad for a year to end. My theme of the year is to Count it All Joy. To do that, I knew that once the new year started I needed to make some changes. After a year of chaos and some out of character behavior I … Continue reading The Purge
December is just dark. A dark month but full of festive lights. It’s the holiday season and I’ve felt so many mixed emotions, ups and downs. Part of those feelings is gratitude with a side of confusion. A year ago I was in a much different place with so many unknowns — do I have … Continue reading Waiting for the Light
I haven’t blogged in a while mainly because I just didn’t know what u wanted to say. The month is coming to a close and so much has happened. The growing pains are continuing but I feel more peace and resilience with each trial that comes my way. The constant question that plagues is how … Continue reading Transition Tears
Writing has been on my agenda of things to do but I just kept pushing it to the side. What could I possibly write about? Life has been so chaotic these past few weeks (let’s face it now, months) and I feel like I’m barely keeping up. I was talking to my friend the other … Continue reading I’m Sad

March is almost done can you believe it! I don’t know about you but this month has had its ups and downs on my end. Globally we are going through the crisis in Ukraine where not only did we see evil in the form of bombs but also we saw the evil of racism on … Continue reading Choosing Joy
Grief has a funny way of sneaking up on you when you least expect it. I recently have really been missing my grandfather; his words, his advice, his kindness. I’m sitting on the train wondering what I should blog about this month and that grief brought me back to something I wrote back in November. … Continue reading My Grandfather’s Hands
I read that caption in a medical record and it couldn’t be more accurate for how I’m feeling about my life right now. This past month has been a slight disaster/ life and death situation. I come out of it feeling like I’ve lost so much; specifically my ovary which contains much of my hope … Continue reading Failure to thrive in adult
