The Ax, Sword and Arrow – All In

Lies are like all sin. Once they start they take on a life of their own. They get infected and you need more to cover what you already have set in motion. All lies get exposed, if not here on earth then on judgment day. As believers who desire to be all in we must … Read moreThe Ax, Sword and Arrow – All In

Kaleidoscope

I often reflect on the puzzle of that which is the human race; scattered pieces of discontent and distraction. We spend an immense amount of time wishing and hoping, but never taking ownership over our part in it all. It’s taken me a lifetime to realize that our circumstances are always a direct reflection, or … Read moreKaleidoscope

The Peaceful Breeze of Sweet Surrender

Fellowship I seek fellowship. Time spent with someone who expects nothing of or from me. Someone who will allow me to be me, whatever that version may be.

Paradise in my Mother’s Eyes

Paradise is found on the others side of this feeling. Swimming in the tears. Hidden behind a veil of chaos and confusion. Paradise lost. Paradise found. Whispering caresses of promise and peace. Paradise stolen. Or was it given away? Perception or deception? Intermingling manipulation – vining and intertwining – digging in and rooting deep. The … Read moreParadise in my Mother’s Eyes
