I’m elated to announce the launch of my Kickstarter to publish my second novel, the Wedding & Disaster of Felona Mabel.
If all of the things that you’re working toward right now were at the edge of a crumbling cliff and you only had time to save one thing before everything else fell into the abyss, which thing would you grab?
Have you ever thought to yourself, “It’s not easy bein’ green?” No? Replace the word green with a word that better describes you – physically, culturally or situational. At one time or another, you’ve gone down the rabbit hole of comparing yourself to others and their situation. Don’t. That’s a one-way ticket to depression.
Love isn’t supposed to hurt – physically, psychologically, or sexually. If it does and that hurt is routine and intentional, that’s not love.
yesternight, full moon rocked
this night’s show, autumnal equinox
day and night are equal, again
yin and yang and us akin
spring, I fell forward
but now I just Fall in.
if we’re truly honest with ourselves, we would be cognizant that we have the propensity to be like Judas while striving to be like Jesus. the enemy isn’t always charging toward us. sometimes, he is us. resist him, and moreover, be aware of negative influences – outside and inside.
neither ignore nor indulge in people’s praise. instead, love and work with steady diligence, regardless of public response.
thankfulness is the best defense against adversaries like anxiety, disappointment, depression and even despair, despite what strongholds have you right now. try it and see what happens. #defense
joy isn’t made in a factory or packaged for consumption, it’s made by you. fresh. daily. #makeYourOwnHappiness
wherever you retreat without obligation, there your heart is also.
looking backward is a temporal exercise for the eyes to strengthen them, so that they can better focus and look forward. #eyesForwardNow
there are times where we can be so caught up in documenting, capturing or recording a moment that we miss the opportunity to be present and fully experience that moment.
countless men and women have died while in service to the United States armed forces. freedom is not free and they paid a dear price for mine. I honor their memory and their sacrifice. #thankyou
‘being right’ nor our multitude of rights is what’s most important. what’s most important is the impression we leave behind – the edification of others that’s left in our wake – the echoes of our love.
our souls are narrow unless God has entered, upon our asking Him to.
the only distance between yourself and the God of the universe is that which you impose. #gentlereminder #godisnear
squint out the details and trivial things until all that you see is the important. now start painting the beautiful picture that is your vivid and intended life.
despite your lying tongue; despite your angry mouth; despite your addiction; despite your doubt; despite all that makes you imperfect, you’ve been forgiven and set free by grace.
there is a great liberation in being honest with God. when my head is cleared of hidden things, my soul feels less burdened.
you can’t conquer mountains, but you can conquer yourself. be slow to speak, while hastening to listen.
