Related image

Verbal and emotional abuses…
cause many lives to be broken…
for it’s the stepping stone for worse…
as we accept negative words spoken.
For verbal and emotional abuses…
are always in the beginning…
but progress to even more abuse…
with many having a tragic ending.
For words are like swords…
that cut deep as a knife… Continue reading

I saw this recently and wanted to share with you all. Wanda Goines is the 92-year-old woman in this video. She wrote this poem entitled “The Gift-Wrap and The Jewel”, in which she shared her thoughts on aging and what’s important in life. This is wisdom that we can all learn from.

I looked in the mirror and what did I see,

What is Normal?

Image result for CHRISTMAS STRUGGLES

With so much abuse and bullying going on, I just wanted to share a message. People tend to criticize those who are different… but remember that God makes no mistakes.

What is normal?…
is a question we should all ask…
as we look all around us…
at the world so vast.
For we are all created…
in the likeness of God above.
And He knitted each in a womb…
placed there with His Love.
And God created us all equal…
but each DNA is unique.
So how can we classify “normal”…
when only God has the right to critique. Continue reading

Domestic Violence Burn Victim Speaks Out—Trigger Warning

Woman set on fire: Attacker's punishment doesn't fit crime

As I have read today about this case of domestic violence, my heart truly goes out to this brave burn victim who has a message for all women from her hospital bed. She wants all to know that verbal abuse leads to physical abuse and if in an abusive relationship, to get out. What this woman has gone through has just been horrific and I pray that “Judy’s Law” will pass to help all victims of this sort of domestic violence. I have attached a “Trigger Warning” Continue reading

As I was thinking the other day about what it would be like if we could look behind doors to peep into our futures, I suddenly remembered an old TV game show called “Let’s Make a Deal”.  Prizes were given of  value and participants were given a choice to either keep it or exchange it for a different item of possibly greater value… but it was hidden behind a door. The participants did not know what they were getting till the doors were opened and it was revealed for all to see. Unfortunately, many were very disappointed.  And that is how it is in many of our lives. Continue reading

Virtual Blog Tour

Virtual Blog Tour…
Now this is a new adventure…
and I really have to admit.
I don’t usually do this…
but feel I have to commit.
I tried to write a paragraph…
but few words came to me.
So I started to write…
and rhyming it shall be.

First, I praise God…
for the words that I receive…
and the friends that I have made…
and the hearts He turns to believe.
For it is not about us…
but all about Him.
So He will be my focus…
as this blog tour will begin. Continue reading
