UNFILTERED: 10/1/2016

If you are sensitive to unfiltered TRUTH. DO NOT READ THIS.   I woke up this morning in a panic. I always do. I face so much anxiety that I don’t know how to handle it. You see, I am 31 years old and have never known the joy of the Lord. PEACE is fleeting… Continue reading UNFILTERED: 10/1/2016

How I played myself…

So lemme tell you guys how I played myself…. For months I have been “crushing” on my pastor’s son! I pay attention to what he’s wearing, where he is in the sanctuary, who he’s conversing with, etc. Seriously, straight middle school/high school shenanigans! To be perfectly transparent (which is the norm when it comes to… Continue reading How I played myself…

That Pivotal Moment…

I used to wonder what made people really get fed up enough to make drastic changes. After this morning, I think I’m beginning to understand… I HATE/ABHOR/DETEST not being able to “fit” something.

As a single woman who is striving… Continue reading Date Night: THE smallest GESTURE…

An Issue of Blood

[Written 8/15/12 and never posted]So again this morning, I was feeling so distant from God. I’m not even going to say that I have no idea why, because that would be a lie. I try to be as honest as I can be in my posts without putting myself or anyone else at risk, so… Continue reading An Issue of Blood

Calling my bluff…

Ruth NEVER waited. This is the only thing that plays in my head when I hear a fellow single Christian woman say she’s wating on her BOAZ.It’s the only thing I’ve been hearing in my head for the last couple days after a co-worker explained to me that all I am “is talk”. When she… Continue reading Calling my bluff…
