Feeling alone and abandoned…
like no one wants to be near you…
as if you are contagious…

Grow where you’re planted…
are the words I heard one day.
Then I realized a deeper meaning…

because some families won’t hold us back.
But sometimes we can’t…
for any pursuit of God brings attacks. Continue reading

As I watched TV with my children this weekend…
one message was repeated loud and clear…
that Christmas was a time to spend with family…

talks about family and gift giving to others…
but so many are financially unable…
or even estranged from children, sisters, or brothers. Continue reading

be joyful with each Christmas surprise.
For many are now all alone…
their dreams shattered with divorce…
and families are now scattered…
as they’ve taken a different course. Continue reading
