Troubles

Troubles

I've been troubled by troubles. Not simply my own. Seeing people that I care for struggle has been difficult for me as well. There's a lot of it out there, and for someone who is very empathic (points to self) life has been draining.  I messaged my friend Ronda about how I was feeling and [...]

Guard Your Heart

Guard Your Heart

Don't keep looking at the darkest skies They'll only swallow you up in lies  Don't forget there's a silver lining  Behind those greys is something worth finding. Don't keep buying what you cannot feel You may not see it That doesn't make it real Don’t forget that the sun still shines  We're not alone  But [...]

Pure Joy

Pure Joy

I really like the sound of pure joy. How about you? Pure joy sounds amazing actually. While looking through my drafts, the following verse spoke to me. However, I wasn’t feeling that pure joy.

The Mystery

The Mystery

Adventure called So I ran straight out the door! My hopes were high But they all soon hit the floor. My eyes were bright Fixed on a view that I'd longed for Then trouble came running And I lost the metaphor  It's a mystery What tomorrow will bring It's a tug-of-war that can undo my [...]

Little and Big

Little and Big

Little things can become big things and big things can become little things. It's all a matter of perspective, right? Where is your heart? What means the most to you?  For the Christian Faith Comes First. We can look at the little picture and we can look at the bigger picture. I want to look [...]

Soar

Soar

I wrote this poem for one of my best friends a couple of years back. I went looking for it because I felt that I really needed this reminder myself. The funny thing is that Chris and I have reversed roles. He is much happier and content than he was when we met. Wait a [...]
