Though we lie many down to rest,

be assured we will see them again

in heaven.

We all go to the place above

with the ones we love

when Christ returns.

Rest your minds and spirit

in knowing they have entered

the ultimate prize of

eternal rest.


Bearers of Shame

We do not hold

the authority or power

to endure the suffering

that Christ did

for all of us.

No More Shame




Slavery can take on many forms. Here in the United States we have managed to keep our African Americans chained in all kinds of ways.

For me it has been in my head. I have been chained up as a slave to the enemy for my entire life. PTSD is one of the most challenging diseases to overcome. But I am free and finally seeing clearly.

Please know that there is light at the end of the tunnel and you too can be free from your chains. Know that we all have a difficult journey we are on.




We live in this world with so many have to's. Why? 
Because we owe it to each other to be there. We need to be present with all weapons blazing to make this world a better place.

No more moping around feeling sorry for ourselves. It's time to be our best selves and show up to the people in our lives that mean the most to us.

It's time.


Tired Saint

If you are a believer in Jesus, you know first hand what a saint is. You follow Jesus because he is the only one who knows you like no one else. Jesus knows me better than I do. I surrender myself every second of every minute of every hour of every day if I could. But through the grace of God, he seeks me first.

This is a relationship that is priceless. Once you get a real taste of the all knowing God and how he wants the best for all of us, it is impossible not to love all other saints. We all share the same relationship which bonds us beyond the color of our skin, our economic status, and any other obstacles. It is a bond that I cherish.

But what happens when the very people who should help you when you are at your lowest don't? What do you do?

This is the dilemma in front of me. The pain is anguish, the pain is inexcusable. And yet I will forgive every one that has ever turned their head the other direction. Why? Because it made me cling on stronger to God for that needed hug or whatever I needed.

May we all forgive whomever has ever wronged us. In Your loving name, Amen.

No More Shame
