Reality Check

Who am I?  Have you ever asked yourself that question? I hope I’m not the only one.  I know who I am honestly, but these last few days have prompted me to have another Reality Check.  I had a self-love conversation with myself, and the first question was, “What if…..?”. That question triggered thoughts ofContinue reading “Reality Check”

Last Words

Very different, from any other time in my life, loss of family and friends has sadly become a frequent event.

I Sow Seeds of Truth

If you’re ready for CHANGE – you’ll receive the Seeds. That phrase may seem a bit direct to a few, but it’s my truth. I’ve experienced days where I felt less than adequate to fulfill my assignment, based on the reactions of the people in my audience. I would watch their non-verbal responses and listenContinue reading “I Sow Seeds of Truth”

I Want to Yeild, but ……..

Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” That scripture seems so simplistic in concept, but the reality is that we want to yeild, but we also wantContinue reading “I Want to Yeild, but ……..”
