 Honest post here. 


Those four letters

Give me pause

An anxiety

For I suffer 

From it 

Started at sixteen

Medically unable 

To drive

Now to social media

Seeing the destinations

That capture my imagination

And I’ve not seen yet

I know I’m in

A waiting season

And I’m having

To trust

What I don’t understand

About myself

I’m no longer

Seeking the answer 

I just want to learn

What I was too stubborn

To do 

Long ago

Mountain memories

 Honoring your sacrifice today. Thank you is never enough. 

Some pieces of my heart came to visit this weekend. While I don’t have children of my own, I claim my nephews and niece as my own. They are a true joy. Before they and their parents left we took a little trip to the North Carolina mountains for lunch in Saluda, NC. There is something about an old-timey Main Street that makes my heart smile. 


Bring the 

Cool breeze 

And majesty

That makes

You put

The phone down


The curves

In the road

And cherish

Ordinary moments

You know 

My heart






That is

On my heart

Thursday, May 26, 2022


 What is on your heart?

What is making you smile?

What are you reading?

The children. The faces are etched in my soul forever. Search your souls. Jesus loves the children. He states it plainly. Search your motives. 

A good book. Fresh fruit. Snail mail. Unexpected gifts. Each day is an unexpected gift. I make plans, and God just shakes His head. You all make me smile. The way you love me is so extraordinary. Thank you. 

I’m reading Jayci Lee’s books. They are some of my favorites. She’s an AAPI author. I can’t say this enough. Get to know others different than yourself. You’ll be forever changed for the better. 

Blessings and love one another today.

 I have no words today. 

Look upon us Lord

Grant me peace

Where there is

No understanding 

Search your hearts

Your souls

Dig deep

Because today 

It is a privilege

To be alive

 The laughter

Ringing through


Sending the shivers

Of giddy delight

Must be 


Longer nights

To bathe 

In Nature’s

 French toast

Cool breezes

A cute pooch

A beautiful morning

What is making you

Smile today 

Saturday, May 21, 2022



I reclaimed 

Something my soul

Has lacked

Complete joy

In simplicity

Friday, May 20, 2022


 What you up to today?

What is making you joyful?

What are you reading?

 Swinging from the rooftops 

Singing from the treetops 

May the light

Shine through 

That darkness 


To cloud

Wednesday, May 18, 2022


 What is making you smile?

Any wins this week?

What are you reading?

What are you making?

What are you baking?

My poodle

Finding a bathing suit

Asian authors

A victory journal

Nothing at the moment

Good morning

 Sipping on

My morning joe

Ready to start

The day

Getting in

My daily walk

What about you?

Friday, May 13, 2022


 I’m struggling with discipline

To eat right

To read my Bible

With conviction

And fervor 

That I give my phone

Please pray

 What are you reading?

What are you sending?

What are you ordering?

What are you thinking?

What is bringing you joy?

Don’t retreat

 I must forgive myself

To free myself

From a shame 

I don’t deserve

I’m reclaiming

The promise

Of Jesus

Who came

To replace

The perfectionist

That resides in me

Quiet my mind

Still the soul

Replace fear 

Of mistakes 

And rejection

With pride

For conquering

Not retreating

 Just sitting in silence

Remembering when

To fight

When to stop

When to meditate

Leave it in prayer

For when

I don’t understand

I get mad

And anger

Is an emotion

That leaves

Me in disarray

I’m coming undone

Knowing what worked

Years ago

Doesn’t cut it now

I still see injustice

But I can’t let others pain

Destroy my peace

I’m to pray

Do what I can

And leave it

In hands

More capable

Than my own

My mental state

On a razor’s edge

On a wave

On the shores

Of Oahu

Riding atop

The white caps

Basking on the highs

Of nature’s beauty


What are you grateful for today 

My mom


A cozy bed

Saturday, May 7, 2022


 I want to be grateful 

No matter the fact

That I’m befuddled

Most of the time

They only thing

I know

Is that I’m His

And for today

That’s enough

Love the life

You have

In war torn nations

Quiet is a blessing

 Any prayer requests today?  I haven’t done one in awhile. I hope this day finds you healthy and happy. Blessings my friends.

 It’s a quiet day

Round these woods

As I find

The confidence

To take each day

As a blessing

It is

Tuesday, May 3, 2022


 What I’m reading- Books by Jayci Lee. Highly recommend

What I’m eating- Pineapple smoothies

What I’m ordering- Vitamins

What I’m doing- Writing pen pals

What I’m watching- the news

Your turn?

Monday, May 2, 2022


 The humidifier

As my only sound

I’m basking 

In the physical quiet

Hoping my mind

Receives the memo

Break my soul

So I can mend

And start all over

Back at square one




Progress isn’t always linear

It comes as it wishes

Not on my timetable

Sunday, May 1, 2022


 Sunday smiles

Sunday graces

As I enter 

The day with perspective 

And purpose
