Hello Thirty Eight

I have been blessed to have found an outlet for the current of life, in my friendships. These women have adopted me into their hearts and named me their sister. They say the word so effortlessly and fill it with a grace that smooths out my broken edges and difficult ways. They have been the very sponges to polish my jarring weaknesses. They have been God’s hands to uphold me in the midst of trauma, loss, heartbreak, and pain.

Recovering from Misguided Love

You know how the Bible talks about God having ways?  Like those passages that say “Lord teach me Your ways” and “His ways are higher than our ways”?  Well, I’ve said that prayer, “Lord, teach me Your ways” as I was sitting on the living room sofa my roommates and I shared as a 20-something.  I had my Bible… Continue reading Recovering from Misguided Love

Valentine’s Day: From a Single’s Perspective

Well it’s that time again…V-Day.  Every year it catches me off guard.  I know there are many singles who dread the approaching holiday year after year and it’s on their radar as early as January.  There are many who cringe at the various business advertisements pushing their product of flowers, candy, and the standard teddy… Continue reading Valentine’s Day: From a Single’s Perspective
