Coherent

I took a walk with the hope that it would give me time to pause. And in that pause, God would give me the opportunity to awaken, be more coherent and move me to blossom and grow to ultimately take these few courageous steps of the day. Not only did He do this for me, but He also blessed me with the beauty of this rose along the way.

I thank Him, time and time again, for helping me take these few courageous steps to see the beauty around each corner of my journey.

It may be a rose. Just a simple rose. But to me, it’s so much more. It’s a reminder of how beautiful life can be if I only I took the opportunities given, to be the best me, for Him.

Something I Learned About Betrayal

Betrayal is something we all experience at one time or another. Sad to say, but being betrayed is just a fact of life. When this happens, we can either learn and grow from it or let it bring us down. It’s our choice. Starting with faith in others is a great beginning to trusting others again. Surround yourself with positive people who you can confide in who have been through the same hurt. Distance yourself from those who are not trustworthy. Maintain control of your emotions. It can be so easy to have the “eye-for-an-eye” mindset, but don’t go there. Your emotions can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Don’t be a betrayer. Pray about it. Give it to God. But most of all, forgive…forgive…forgive.

my dandelion state of mind

A life changing moment just the day before…

taking me back to my childhood days;

and like the dandelion…I let go of the old…to start something new.

flourishing in my descent.
