I hung out with some of my alumni recently.  (If you’re new here…I worked in college ministry for 12 yrs.)  My guuuuurl, Tia noticed me lookin’ all sad and dejected.  When we talked later, I told her it wasn’t about anything she’d imagined, but just regular ole shame.  The type of shame that makes you wanna […]

“And now you ask me through your tears, the age-old question through the years: Heredity or environment, which are you the product of? Neither, my darling, neither. Just two different kinds of love.” //// {via} Who am I? Why I’m here? I’m here because he saw her. They said yes to adulterous passion.  It’s simple […]

I’ve been thinking about this idea of bravery for the past few days.  It’s interesting isn’t it, that you can be very, very brave in one minute and in the next minute inhale the deepest breath of fear you’ve ever had.  My emotions, regrets, longings for healing, epic battles they are all woven together like […]

i wish you could see yourself

I wish you could see yourself the way I see you! He was all flummoxed.  All concerned.  Reasonably so.  I’d communicated something-or-other about how I’m-not-good-enough-for-this or don’t-deserve-this  OR THAT.  I’d weaseled my way out of kind words and decided instead to settle on why it’s okay for someone to treat me poorly because, really, it […]

When I read Hollywood Housewife’s recent post, I Don’t Believe in God I pridefully thought, “whew. I’m so glad that isn’t me.”  (No hate, shame or judgement toward Laura. I own my judgy-pride issues). That post made me think for a good 3-4 days. I SO appreciated her honesty.  I appreciated the idea that we can […]

Nightmares_in_dreams

I have nightmares. I can gauge the rawness of the dream by how long it takes to feel like my normal self again. A garish nightmare will take days, maybe even a week to work through.  A bad nightmare may take  half a day at least.  A bad dream, maybe 2-4 hours.  Something someone else […]
