The Struggle IS Real…

Confession:  Sometimes even mature Christians can feel distant from God or have times when they feel God is far away. I’ve struggled with this off and on for a bit. I’ve wondered why. I KNOW God personally!  I have walked so near to Him that I knew my very breath was coming from Him each... Continue Reading →

I Didn’t Know “Its” Name…

It's been nearly 20 months since Clint went home to be with Jesus.  In 20 months, I have not said much publicly as to the reason for his unexpected passing.  This was due to many factors but I am ready to speak out on it now. On November 9, 2017, my 45 year old husband... Continue Reading →

…Arms Wide Open!

I've wanted to write for a long time about the relationship changes that come into a widow/widower's life when their spouse passes away.  I'm on numerous facebook pages for loss of spouse.  I've gotten to know many widows in the 18 months I have been one.  And, the one relationship that truly saddens me, is...

Why I Didn’t Do “It”…

I’ve had it on my heart to talk about loss, depression, and suicide for some time but have been waiting for the “right” time. Christmas is approaching. The holidays are well under way with lights and festive music and parties happening all around. Yet many are not in the festive mood. Reasons vary. But the... Continue Reading →

Okay Being Not Okay…

I suppose one of the more difficult challenges to openly grieving and doing my life, is the pressure to be okay when I may not be okay.  And, the truth is, I really am, as a whole, doing great for the place in life I am in.  But, there are times I am not okay. ... Continue Reading →
