Close your eyes. Write about what you see

When I close my eyes, I see the life I aspire to live.  One filled with joy and challenges.  Opportunities which include a path to authorship, ministering full time and yes finding love. My dreams of becoming an author began when I first began keeping a journal nearly twenty-five years ago.  Within those pages I would describe how I aspired to be transparent like Maya Angelou in her writings. Through…

Write About a Quilt or a Blanket

I have a pink Snuggie neatly folded in the bottom drawer of my guest bedroom.  It was meant to be placed out of sight and hopefully mind.  My mother, younger sister and I had a matching set.  One for each in our own respective homes.   After my mother’s death I would sit in her den for hours wrapped in her blanket.  Her scent still fresh I placed my arms in…

Write about the night sky

When I consider your heavens,     the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars,     which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them,     human beings that you care for them? Psalm 8:3-4 NIV If I ponder long enough about the night sky, or any of God’s creation for that matter, I cannot help but sit in awe and wonder.  How the stars light…

Write about a used car

My dream car is a 1968 Ford Mustang Convertible.  Preferably candy apple red but I’ll settle for any color available if given the option.  I have no idea when or how this idea formulated into my mind, but it’s been there for quite some time.  Seeing Mandisa driving one in her music video “overcomer” didn’t help matters either.  I love that car and everything about it.  It’s sporty, classy yet…

In the Meantime…

A Letter to my Younger Self Love does not entail verbal abuse. You’ll have your heart broken but don’t give up on love. Disharmony in the church is normal, but not representative of Christ’s love. Don’t be afraid to travel.  Alone… Don’t settle for a job because it pays well.  Pursue your passion. Don’t be afraid to walk away.  You deserve better. Public speaking gets easier once you find your…

Write about something you bought mail order

In order to do a better job in achieving my goals I purchased the new Happy Planner for goal setting.  I use it instead of my regular classic planner and so far, I’m really enjoying it.  I’ve even created a mini vision board to place alongside my goals for 2019.  Having the ability to break each goal down both monthly and weekly in such a cute manner is ideal.   This…

Remember a Sound

When I was a child my grandmother loved to listen to the blues.  Before the age of twelve I could easily identify the likes of Bobby Blue Bland, ZZ Hill, Johnny Taylor and any other artist she was inclined to listen to.  And even though I didn’t understand the meaning of those songs I knew every word.  Payday Friday’s were a time of fish fries, dominoes and a game of…

Write about a bed

I hard the most difficult time getting out of bed this morning.  I awakened at roughly 1:30 am writing down ideas for journal prompts.  Trying to meet the needs of those who like myself find journaling so beneficial.  Two church services missed and two cups of coffee later and I finally arrived in time for the last service of the day.   Looking cute I might add.  However, sadly I CANNOT…

It’s Saturday Afternoon. You’re not at home.

Today I had the pleasure of attending a meeting for an advisory council I’d been invited to participate on.  NAMI of SN is part of a nationwide organization that partners with other agencies to bring impact on a much broader scale.  Being able to offer a faith perspective on behalf of my church to such a complex issue is something I hope will add value to an already well-established organization. …
