This story just touched my heart today and I wanted to share with all of you.

The story of Jane Roe…
was one that I did not know.
But I heard about it today…
as I learned she died the other day.
For she was the “Roe”…
in the historic “Roe v. Wade”.
But she had changed from pro-choice…
and joined the “Pro-Life” crusade.
For she saw the brokenness…
in so many young women’s eyes…
but only saw it increase…
as the life inside them dies. Continue reading

Opening Doors of Our Pasts

Abused…
with some memories a little hazy?
Well rest assured…
remember, you are not crazy.
For abusers twist truth…
and pound you with repeated lies…
as a way to control and manipulate…
while the real truth is disguised.

And after years go by…
and the web of lies has grown…
sometimes it takes others to decipher…
for the real truth to be known.
For others see what’s happening…
even though victims can’t see clear…
and just like a friend told me yesterday…
“I could have told you but you would not hear.” Continue reading
