More and more violence…
is being seen in the world today…
from behind closed doors in homes…
to the schools where our children play.
And why is this increase happening…
is what so many people repeatedly ask…
but just look around at our society…
and the immorality that so many bask.
From porn on the streets and internet…
to rioting and violence in the street… Continue reading

Remember—Human Sex Trafficking and The Super Bowl

Human trafficking is a growing problem today
so I lift up these victims and ask you to pray.
For this was written a few years ago…
but the number of victims has grown more than we know.
*******
Human Sex Trafficking and The Super Bowl…
where football tickets aren’t the only thing sold.
But these trafficking victims need our prayers…
not just criticisms and sickly stares.
Traffickers will bring victims from around the world…
to make money selling sex with young girls.
So we all need to be aware…
and I ask you all to join me in prayer. Continue reading

Human/ Sex Trafficking Awareness– As The Super Bowl Nears

As the Super Bowl nears, I want to remind everyone that sex trafficking increases in the areas where these big events are occurring.  Please be aware of these horrific acts and realize that some of these women that you may see are victims… not willing participants.   Please join me in prayer that many of these victims will be able to be rescued in the upcoming weeks.

Human/ Sex Trafficking Awareness!
This is a huge problem today.
It’s a modern-day  slavery…
capturing more victims every day.
More education is needed…
to be aware of warning signs.
Cause the problem is increasing…
with more people meeting on-line. Continue reading

DV Awareness Day#25: Abuses and Addictions– As The Wheels Go Round and Round

The old song, “The Wheels on the Bus” has been on my mind today and I just wanted to share some of the thoughts that came with that song.

Abuses and addictions…
have been my thoughts for the day…
and I want to share this message…
as this song in my head continues to play.
For this children’s song repeats…
as the lyrics in my head continually sound…
and I thought of many broken lives…
like “The wheels on the bus go round and round.”
For the cycle of abuse continues…
just like playing a repetitive song.
But the problem with this cycle…
is that it is devastatingly wrong.
And many face addictions…
from which they rise and fall again…
as they go round and round…
trying to bring their addiction to an end. Continue reading

Dysfunctional Families~~Where the Unacceptable Becomes Acceptable

This is for the multitude of us who have been raised in dysfunctional families of some sort. Unacceptable behaviors become acceptable to our children when they are experienced in their homes. And as these abnormal behaviors become normal then the cycle of abuse continues.

Dysfunctional families…
to which many of us belong.
With unacceptable behaviors…
but we feel nothing’s wrong!
For the behaviors we see…
become acceptable at best…
for we live with the drama…
and the dysfunctional stress. Continue reading

Selfies, Pride, and Pornography

As narcissism as been my focus this week, I want to address another growing problem with the internet these days. Too many of our youth fall victim to the lies and deception that the obscurity of the internet allows. Identities are hidden as names are changed while the innocent trust and the deceptive play harmful games. Kids are stolen and sold into trafficking with promises of love or wealth or fame, while many parents don’t even realize that these youth are communicating with strangers.

Selfies, pride and pornography…
are growing problems today.
As many become absorbed…
in the worldliness of this day.
Teens taking pictures…
of themselves with such pride.
And even pictures of parts…
that should be clothed and hide. Continue reading

Prostitution… Not a Choice Willfully Made

As I watched the attached video, Fancy, my heart melted for the many children who are forced into prostitution by the ones who should be protecting and nurturing them. We need to open our eyes and realize that the majority of these who are trapped in this lifestyle are not there by choice. Please join me in prayer for every one trapped in prostitution.

Prostitution…
not a choice willfully made.
Especially involving children…
many too young to choose a “trade”.
For most are victims…
of the woundedness of their pasts…
whether poverty or addictions…
or domestic violence and it’s wrath.
And sadly some parents…
force their own child to do “tricks”…
beginning a life of prostitution…
for their own parent’s addictive fix.
And child sex slavery…
is becoming more rampant today…
with increasing porn and prostitution…
leaving many children trapped this way. Continue reading

Exposing Abuse…

Exposing abuse…
is what we should all do.
For abuse is hurtful…
and very destructive too.


From the smallest of infants…
to the youth of today…
so many are abused…
in many various ways.


For verbal and emotional…
are abuses many deny.
But words are like daggers…
making many victims cry. Continue reading
