Welcome!

Welcome to my blog!

My goal is two-fold: I want to find a way to share my thoughts and tell my story AND I want to reach out to others and hear their stories.

Writing is my choice of medium. It is the truest way I have found to connect with others. Before you read anything else, please read my testimony here. This will give you an idea of who I am and the kinds of things that I address in this blog.

You can find all of my contact information here. Please, comment on this page, follow me on facebook, email me. I want to here from YOU and I will do all that I can to make myself available.

I pray that God will open my eyes and yours as we go continue on this journey called life together. May God grant you peace and wisdom every step along the way!

Hebrews 10:23-25 (NIV)—Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

1 John 4: 7, 10-12 (NIV)—Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God…This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God loves us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us.

WE CAN’T MOVE THE STORM CLOUDS ON OUR OWN, BUT IF WE NEVER LOOK UP, WE’LL NEVER BE ABLE TO SEE THE SUN

We can’t move the storm clouds on our own,

but if we never look up, we’ll never be able to see the sun.

The eye of the storm may be closer than you think.

Put your trust in the One who made the clouds, the sun, the rain,

And you.

We can’t move the storm clouds on our own,

but if we never look up, we’ll never see the sun.

If we never take that leap, we’ll never learn to fly.

If we never take that leap, we’ll drown beneath the “Why?”

You may fall a few feet, but rest assured you will soon rise.

If we never take that leap, we’ll never learn to fly.

If we never take that leap, we’ll drown beneath the “Why?”

I’ve never calmed the sea. I’ve never walked on water.

Some days I find it hard to lift my gaze higher.

I’m that apostle who cried in the middle of the storm.

But the one who knows the name of every drop in every ocean

Will allow me to overcome.

I’ve never calmed the sea. I’ve never walked on water.

Some days I find it hard to life my gaze higher.

So you see, the clouds are a temporary distraction.

To fly requires action.

Keeping our eyes above the storm is the correct reaction.

Through life’s many ups and downs, a whole life-times worth,

we must learn to trust and to love and to fly and to fall

And most of all to keep our eyes above it all.
