DEAR HOLDER OF THE PEN

Tonight my story is a work of fiction. Once again, what I had planned on writing faded, and an idea came forward. Bear with me as I put together the thought that bugged me all day. Dear Holder of the Pen, Last night I heard the sadness in your voice. I am so sorry for your loss. If I could […]

SOUL LIFTING SATURDAY AND SUNDAY

I would like to invite you, dear readers, to take a journey back in time with me. A journey that started out early Saturday morning.  A drive that resembled a ride on a roller coaster with its ups and downs, and twists and turns.  A journey that I desperately needed.

DEAR LORD HEAR MY PRAYER

It was early Monday morning when I got the call. A frantic call. A call that would change and break my heart. The caller, my brother-in-law, short words; she is in the ambulance, they can’t revive her. That was all.  “They can’t revive her.”  Stunned, what was happening? My youngest sister? No, it can’t be! Got up, wandered around in […]
