The Abundant Life: P2

The Abundant Life: P2

I keep expressing that good things can come out of bad things. Perhaps I haven't expressed this on my blog. I'm uncertain. Nevertheless, it's about time that I proved it. It's no secret that I've really been struggling during this pandemic.  I never realized how much impact those family gatherings had on my life. During [...]

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 [...]

Suf-FISH-ient

I'm a fish  Blub blub blub Don’t ask I'm trying something different  Thinking outside my box  It was kind of cramped in there anyways.  Wait a minute I'm a fish  Fishes don’t have boxes  They swim the ocean with ease  Sometimes we call them seas So seize the day  And be a fish  If you [...]

I'm not a big fan of sudden, unexpected power outages. As the case may be they're almost always sudden and unexpected. Life is the same way. Things have a way of changing on a dime.  Thankfully our power outage occurred on Monday morning after I'd posted on my blog, caught up with a friend, and [...]

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 [...]

True Beauty Tips

True Beauty Tips

About three years ago I became very sensitive to hair colouring so I decided I'd ditch the dye. My ears were insanely itchy! I wanted to stop colouring eventually, anyways, so I went for it. I failed the first attempt. As those silver strands started to appear at the top of my head I wasn't [...]

Fighting Words

Fighting Words

This isn’t what I planned on posting. I'm not feeling happy with what I was going to share, and to be honest the day is attempting to kick me in the teeth. As I started to get tearful, hope and joy began to run the other way. Get back here!!! Stop being cowards!!!! Okay, that [...]

Dreaming

Dreaming

I'm dreaming… Of another place and better days Dreaming Of brighter thoughts and better ways  Dreaming  That dreams come true I know some do But while I dream there's work to do. I'm dreaming... That trials and tears come to an end Dreaming  Of laughter, love and friends  Dreaming  On wings I'll soar and life [...]
