Freedom from Shame- Freedom Series part 2

I looked in the mirror and I felt it. The shame my body told me to believe. I looked at this girl and saw her. Not the body at first, but her. Then I let my gaze move from head to toe and I  whispered, "Hang on body; I"m coming for you too, Sis." See, … Continue reading Freedom from Shame- Freedom Series part 2

Go Gently …

She was audacious and impulsive. Not the reckless kind of wild you might imagine, but more the kind of just passionately seeking to live to her fullest and embrace every opportunity. She saw margin as something that needed to be pushed, gently but insistently, as if life itself depended upon it. She was determined and … Continue reading Go Gently …

FREEDOM

I woke up to my alarm early Saturday morning and immediately thought... "WHAT have I done?" I needed to get up and get going fast! I had an hour drive to my third 5K of my life. "Oh man.. seriously. What have I done?" My mind started to contend against the excuses: I'm in no … Continue reading FREEDOM

The Ministry of Presence

I have two very vivid “feeling” memories from childhood. Feeling memories are things tied sooo closely to what your heart needs to hear; They are not a memory of an event or an instance or even a thing. They are a memory of a feeling, and I have two that conflicted and battled for a place … Continue reading The Ministry of Presence

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 Freak Out Dance

It was August 2012. Weird that I remember that. I mean. I can't remember where I left my car keys most days, or my glasses each morning, or even what I had for dinner two nights ago... Ok. Just Kidding. I remember that one. LOL . I always remember food! But seriously. My mind is … Continue reading The Freak Out Dance
