Ode to Court today, 5/23/2017

As I sit here, next to you  I think of all these moments of time. The moments of my life, so long ago. My life was adventurous. My life had promise.

What Grace means to me

Grace by definition is: simple elegance or refinement of movement or in Christian belief - the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.

Where I am in my life, for now.

It has been many years since I finished Evolving to Grace. Since then, I’ve come a long way from being that woman that was confused by what life was having her go through.

It was the night that I first saw how off track my life had veered and I was scared. I … Continue reading A message from me to you

What remains after…

What remains after the butterfly has gone. What remains is sorrow—that I won't have one last kiss. What remains is loneliness—that I won't have one last embrace. What remains is bitterness—that you had to leave me so soon. What remains is guilt—that I wasn't there for you in the end. What remains is disbelief—that you're … Continue reading What remains after…

excerpt – evolving to grace

During our lives, we had received tender touches by my mom at times; all us girls would jump in her bed and have her scratch our backs. We’d have a balance of humor from our dad and actual interaction, like when he’d play with us in the ocean or like that one time we all … Continue reading excerpt – evolving to grace

Loneliness is a void in one’s self that everyone feels at some point in their lives. I always felt so alone and at such an early age that it seemed like I was always alone, even when I was playing with my sister or someone. For as long as I can remember, I always felt like … Continue reading Loneliness
