Clarity’s river

Clarity came with consequences

Can’t unsee the seen

Can’t “unknow” the known

pawn made a queen

Or

queen made a pawn

?

Waking up from the dream

Tears cried turned to rivers

Baptized in truth

The minute hand and hour hand carry her forward

Boxes now packed

Suitcases sit stacked

There is no coming back

Closed red doors

Burnt umber bridges

Beautiful, a bit broken, and headed to healing

Clarity came with consequences

a succulent & 3 cacti

Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. Colossians 2:7 (NLT)

Uprooted i was

Replanted by God’s hands

Rooting in Him

Still prickly though

God’s cactus

forest of forgiveness

sowing seeds of forgiveness

in hopes of growing a forest of forgiving

God blows breathes of new life through the leaves

as the winds of change blow through our souls

we are free again

Holy Spirit soars within us

and that mountain is a mole hill again

scars remain but the range of motion is back

we move on

lingering not on what was

praising God for what is and what will be

remembering it’s okay to cry on occasion cause He collects those tears and maybe pours them over those seeds we are sowing

maybe

He hears heavy hearts and lightens them too

He heals heavy hearts and enlivens them too

sowing seeds of forgiveness

in hopes of growing a forest of forgiving

well hello 2021…

Me on the phone with God

The truth is unchanging

Real love endures

God’s love transforms

Karma ain’t real

I call myself/my self Young Grandma now and spent hours on the phone with God these days.

Having learned the hard way that chatting it up with humans that don’t grow you or don’t even really know you is just an epic waste of time.

But many of us have had to learn this lesson.

It annoys me that people try to figure each other out via the interwebs- Peering into screens as opposed to peering into the souls of our peers, colleagues, and loved ones in real life.

I don’t freely or intimately speak with many anymore but I listen freely, offering advice only when I am asked or when I can bill one for it.

It is what it is- tired of being kind then called fake – or being stern/honest then called aggressive by people who don’t know me or themselves for that matter.

I have always appreciated quality over quantity and am absolutely blown away and grateful for the genuine God filled people that share their truths with me and allow me to share mine.

Thank you.

Thank God.

I am very much an imperfect sinner. I smiled as I wrote that.

But my brother Jesus gave me his g-pass so I’m saved. There is no sibling this loving, merciful, and forgiving.

Get to know Him.

By g-pass I mean gospel pass.

Laughs – only one I will ever need.

What is the gospel? – I was asked this question every Friday for four weeks and though I can answer the question I am not yet ready to write a succinct answer.

So I have included a link to a book that can answer that question at the end of this post.

I think of myself as a warrior – it’s more empowering then being a victim more sane then being Catwoman.

I mean I was raised by literal warriors – military soliders.

a man and a woman – a husband and a wife – a mother and a father

My parents…

It is safe to say that I have a good deal of fight in me.

God is teaching me to fight the right fights though- to come to Him first and quite often I leave the battles at His feet & He does the rest… then I can rest.

True peace that only God can give.

Rest.

My older lady best friend and my mom (former soldier) often remind me to put on the armor of God.

This I do daily.

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Ephesians 6:11

I do be. Laughs

If you can’t handle my grammar or punctuation please (kindly) get off my site.

Remember this is my sliver of the interwebs.

Transformation is the quest for this caterpillar in Christ… accepting the way God made me, repenting daily, rejecting the way the world attempts to play me – thanking the people that pay me.

Laughs.

Future me said the caterpillar 🐛

*looks around blog

I’m not sure what this blog is but it’s fun to write without dead lines.

I appreciate you dear readers from around the world- I see you.

I will leave you with one last scripture and links to things I dig on the inter-webs.

Peace – until next time dear reader – you are loved.

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. Psalms 143:8

death of a queen/ seat of consciousness

dear warrior queen,

meet us at the edge of darkness and the rim of light.

divided for too long we have been.

love,

i am + sister nature

I woke up to this letter pinned to the breastplate of my rose gold armor.

My heart always opens for them – I mean they are who I have been fighting for all these years… Right?

Dawning on me like the morning sun I realize that I am enslaved to this ”fight”

And if I am not free… then neither are they

So to free me is to free she because we are a we

Hmmm…

I denounce the crown and throw my selenite sword into the lake of fire

Back to the hell, it came from

I am willing to do anything to free us

War-torn

Forlorn and sensitive

This is no way to live or die

I walk back through the forest of forever

Dropping my armor as I go

Shaking this load off

I am headed to meet my selves at the rim of light, the edge of darkness

I hear them singing as I approach

Ahhhh, we’ve been waiting for you my love she says as sister nature nods -We saved you a seat…

to be continued…

Cloaks

She ran fast and her light shined bright even in the darkest of night

Even in the darkest of night

Cloaked in confidence

Cloaked in confidence

Cloaked in confidence

And bulletproof belief

She stood in the field of forever

The warrior queen at her left

Sister Nature at her right

God in her heart

She pulled all her own triggers so you couldn’t

Blam

Glitter everywhere

Cloaked in confidence

Cloaked in confidence

Cloaked in confidence

Even in the darkest of night

She ran fast and her light shined bright even in the darkest of night
