These words about deception ring in my spirit today. As these days progress, more and more deception is coming our way. “Be not deceived” was a warning from God. The only way to not be deceived, is the Spirit of Truth within you…so reach for the Lord for He sent His Holy Spirit to be our Guide… I pray that hearts will be opened to receive His warning….
When we were young, so innocent and pure,
I thought our love would forever endure.
I totally trusted and in him believed.
Never expecting to be totally deceived. Continue reading
Trust was the word that I got today… so I dedicate this poem to all of you who have been wounded by those that you loved and your trust was broken. Abuse, adultery, abandonment… all of these destroy the trust that we develop in others as children . I pray for healing for all of you and total restoration as you TRUST GOD with your life….
A simple word to most.
But hardly simple!
My past full of ghosts.
Simply done as a child.
But hardly simple,
when destroyed by vile. Continue reading

As I was waking up this morning, several words came to my mind…
The thought came to me as I heard these words of the countless number of victims of abuse, domestic violence, and broken marriages…then I thought…HEARTS BROKEN! Continue reading
The joining of two people,
a woman and a man.
Starting a new life together,
walking hand in hand.
Happy and joyous,
should be their Wedding day.
But just how many,
stay that way? Continue reading
Have you ever felt that your life has just fallen apart? Or felt that all of your plans for the future have just been shattered? Or maybe even felt like your chest had just exploded with your heart bursting out from its place of safety within your rib cage? A feeling like you just exploded or maybe even imploded. It is in this point of total brokenness, that there is nothing left in this world for you to hold onto. Continue reading
When most of us think of a metamorphosis occurring, we think of tadpoles turning into frogs or caterpillars changing to beautiful butterflies. Unfortunately, most of us do not even consider the possibility of a form of a complete human metamorphosis. But then, most of us do not even see the total brokenness of some of our fellow human beings. Continue reading
LUST!!! Beware of the dangers! So many people are in such a hurry to “find that special someone” or to be “in a relationship” (like the status they put on facebook) that they often ignore some important warning signs or let go of the standards that they have set for themselves. Many teenagers especially feel pressured to “have a boyfriend or girlfriend.” They actually feel like they are missing out on something that other’s have or even missing an important part of their young lives. When this happens, sometimes the things that they had found that they did not like in people will suddenly become tolerable. The ways that others act which they could not stand before… becomes acceptable. The negative words or curse words that others speak, which they would have never spoken before this time, becomes funny or OK. The standards which they had set for themsleves during their young lives become lower. But, is the end result happiness? Continue reading
TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES
Though that was the name of a TV show many years ago, that is not the “Truth or Consequences” that I am talking about. I am talking about the whole truth versus the half-truths, lies, or deceit that many masterfully get away with…at least for a time or in this world. Continue reading

Many things have been written about “LOVE”. We all dream of the day that our “true love” will come and we will live “happily-ever –after”. We all watch various “love stories” with dreams for our wonderful futures with the love of our lives. But what is love? Continue reading
