The Keeper of the Mind

  I am crawling my way back into the adult life. I don’t expect this to happen over night. I saw an infant baby who was seven days old yesterday. I thought, I was that small once. I’ve come a long way. However, on the inside, I knew that the baby was the reflection of…

No more slumber parties

We went to return the pajamas my sister got me at Costco. I am trying to minimize my lifestyle and PJs are the last things I want to add to my possessions. While there, we bought a few other things with the money returned. One of them was a Starbucks classic hot chocolate powder in…

Lilyboat

One early morning in 2008, I was crying out to God feeling most afflicted by my Divorce, Depression, and losing my Dog. I call it my 3D year. I was in a state of great fear about my future, and at the same time, grieving my great loss. I was afraid, and I was sad…

Will you remember my name?

  I will more than remember your name.You are more than a leaf on a drying tree. I will remember your life. Even if no one knew you were here. I will remember. It’s cold, I know. It’s dark, I see. But these dark nights won’t last forever. I mean to complete the world.You complete my design. I will…

Counselors eager to help me. Mental clinic with good Christian intention to help those afflicted people like me is near by. I know I can ask for help. If I wanted more therapy, I could get some easily. But maybe, it’s time to put a stop to that. There comes a time in every patient’s…

Oh, Shenandoah, I’m bound to leave you

When I left the marriage, I did not leave him with any option. I signed everything off, including my car and our house on a golf course, and claimed no possession to anything that we owned together. When I came to him at such a young age of 21, I came with nothing, so I…

Prayer for Submission

  I submit my will to your will. I desire to be with the one who resurrected from death. You know about my desire. You know that I have laid down my will. You know that you have total control over me. I ask that you put me where you desire me. Whether it be to…

Cabin Crush

It’s winter already in my world. I have stacks of books on Christmas themes, winter reflections, and a book with snow covered mountain cabin on its cover. It’s called Cabin: Two Brothers, a Dream, and Five Acres in Maine. My heart literally skipped its beat when I discovered this book at the library. I was like…

Dance of Life

I don’t know where I’m going. I don’t know what I’m doing. But I know this. I am where I am today because of His mercy. Where I am, His mercy shines. I am in the spotlight of His eyes. It’s in His light that I do this dance of life. This is no audition. I have…

God’s superhero

I probably wrote at least 5 books in my head yesterday. First one was about a girl buying an old tour van going on a journey without any destination in mind. Second was about me moving to Wilbur, OR for a year to live in the woods. The rest, I don’t even remember. I think…
