Tell our hearts to believe

I had a conversation with a friend recently over #whatdoesyourheartneedtohear? "Seriously", I asked her, "What DOES it need to hear?" She said: "It needs to hear that trusting Him ... Is safe." She went on to say she knows that it is Truth... she's sure. God IS Trustworthy. Her head knowledge told her so. But, … Continue reading Tell our hearts to believe

The Mask of “Fine”

Hey #sisterfriends. I'm talkin to you today. Specifically, You. The one who's "fine." “I’m so glad we can be “fine” together. And by “fine”... I mean “un-fine”. It's what our hearts need to hear, I think. It’s a thing, you know... this being un-fine. It's is a courageous deep breathe to continue on, among the … Continue reading The Mask of “Fine”

Okra

My heart was hurting It was plainly obvious she didn’t like me. Worse... She couldn’t stand to be around me. Geesh. All the rush of all my childhood insignificance, unimportance and unwanted ”nesssss”… flooded my soul again. And man, for the love of all things yummy (because that’s a big biggg category in my life) … Continue reading Okra

The lie of empty.

I don’t like to admit my relationship to food very often, because, well… It’s a struggle. Food was always my “go to” for comfort. It was my “feel good” when life was hard. The “soother” to my woes. The “forget it all” to my problems. The straight shot to the epi center of my brain … Continue reading The lie of empty.

Just Kidding. I remember that one. LOL . I always remember food! But seriously. My mind is … Continue reading The Freak Out Dance

IT is that one thing that Shame tries to tell me I’ll never get to re do,and therefore, there’s … Continue reading Shame OFF ME!

New Year; Letting go of Fear

Don't you dare say you can't do hard things. #notetoself. That's totally me, talking to myself. Totally. I stood in Chicago, in October, at the Marathon my daughter was running and as I waited to catch a glimpse and cheer for her,  I  watched every size, every shape, condition, age, disease, "excuse" and "fear", run … Continue reading New Year; Letting go of Fear

Marathons

I gotta start somewhere. I’m sitting here just looking at a blank screen and promising myself I’m going to type something. … … … It’s ridiculous how my brain works when I’m just going throughout my day and thoughts pop in my head left and right and I “imaginary write” this epic response, awesome blog, … Continue reading Marathons
