a place where time
doesn’t exist
a place where it’s never
the last moment
a place that listens
plans and

and love

having the power
to send darkness to hell
having the faith
to walk in victory
having the courage
to stand tall
and believe

in freedom
in joy
in love

so many choices
to make every day
so many moments
to be love

for God
for yourself
for others

torment may last
for a moment
but joy and peace
are forever more

Alternate Endings

December fourth, two thousand and sixteen…a day I’ll never forget.

It was a Friday, and I’d woken up from a bad dream. If I remember correctly, I woke up crying, and it turned out to be one of the most depressing mornings I’d had, and to top it all off, I felt a cold coming on.

You see, during that time, everything was so unsure: the business, my income, our groceries, etc., and the next day, I was scheduled to have a booth at the Rock and had some mixed emotions about THAT. Anyway, it was a tough morning, but I made it through by writing.

If you visit my website, you’ll find a calendar with daily writings. I believe the fourth was some of my darkest thoughts, but by the afternoon, I felt much better, and then, Katie came in.

She said, “Mom, I have something to tell you. I’m pregnant.” Continue reading

“Life Leads to Life”

January twenty-fifth

the date darkness
planned an abortion
and a suicide
the date heaven
witnessed a marriage
between ex’s

there’s always a way
to override darkness
and live a life of victory
through Jesus

love is a choice
to love God is a choice
to love others is a choice
to love yourself is a choice

in the blink of an eye
a mind can be changed
in either direction
so focus on the good

“Standing Still”

in Texas
I’d think about
San Diego time

in San Diego
I’m thinking about
Texas time

between two worlds
where time really flies
either forward or backward

in between old and new
in between before and after
in between then and now

it’s like reading a book
and saving your place
to go back to

From Never to Forever


The enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy and, at different times, has reeked havoc in my family, but yesterday, some of his plans were abolished.

Twenty-two years ago, I served my ex-husband divorce papers and declared I’d never go back to him.

Over the years, we remained friends, and he never stopped loving me. I, on the other hand, continued down many different roads, and most of them were dark, and down every road, he remained my friend.

He never dated, never had a girlfriend, never “moved on.” Continue reading


some people say
only share the positive

I don’t agree

I share my heart
so when I cry
you cry
when I laugh
you laugh

as I go through life
you share my life
the lowest lows
the highest highs

you’ve see where I’ve been
and where I’ve let God lead me
by faith
by love
by passion

thank you for being
part of my life
and future
