Vulnerability

Vulnerability.  It is not something that comes easily.  Opening myself up emotionally, is difficult.  I was raised by parents who never seemed to care how I felt.  They never asked how I was coping with things.  The most tragic times in my life, I don't really recall them being involved in my emotional support.

The Foolishness of Procrastination

“Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten bridesmaids who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. The five who were foolish didn’t take enough olive oil for their lamps, but the other five were wise enough to take along extra oil. When... Continue Reading →

"His holy people (that includes me) who are His rich and glorious inheritance."  I am God's inheritance.  I have pondered on that little fact... Continue Reading →

Jesus holds me close to His heart Even when I selfishly Or angrily push Him... Continue Reading →
