It is well.

When you awoke this morning, eyes blurred and arms stretched out, was your first thought for the day, “it is well?”  Sadly I’d say for many of us, it indeed was not.  It is not well.  I am not okay.  This is not the way life was supposed to be.  For many it’s just anotherContinue reading “It is well.”

Put the fancy dress away.

I’m sitting here in my pajamas, with sweatpants on with holes in the bottom.  My shirt is way too big.  My hair looks like I may have been electrocuted in the middle of the night.  My breath stinks because I haven’t brushed my teeth yet.  This is me.  On a Saturday morning.  In all my glory.  IContinue reading “Put the fancy dress away.”

Does everything really happen for a reason?

A couple of weeks ago while driving my normal route to work, in an area I don’t spend too much time in except to cut through to the highway, a detour was placed on the exact roads I needed to take to get to that highway.  Furthermore, this detour was taking place in an already congested area,Continue reading “Does everything really happen for a reason?”

Walking in the Wilderness

It’s a lesson everyone agrees with, but one no one wants to go through. To be in the wilderness. To go through the desert. To walk through the valley of the shadow of death. How we get to that place varies in all of us, whether it’s tragedy, a bad diagnosis, divorce, depression, anxiety, etc.Continue reading “Walking in the Wilderness”

Walk through Darkness

I love to be able to sit and write out my own thoughts, but sometimes it’s better to sit back and read someone else’s. Below are the eloquent words of my friend and fellow writer, Shakirah A. Hill, who just submitted her first book proposal, is an incredible speaker and a joy to know and read.Continue reading “Walk through Darkness”

My pursuit of unhappiness.

It is now June. I haven’t posted on my blog since February. I guess I could come up with millions of excuses, but there’s really only one reason. My blog is titled Faithful Thoughts. But my thoughts have been hardly faithful over the last few months as I struggle with doubt, trust, faith, and even belief inContinue reading “My pursuit of unhappiness.”

I have a confession to make …

I am not a joyful person. Gosh, that feels good to admit. Contrary to what my blog tries to portray and how I try to be fun, loving and motivational on Social Media, none of that actually comes naturally to me. Joy does not come naturally to me. Faithful thoughts (you know, the title ofContinue reading “I have a confession to make …”

Is Marriage a Cop-Out?

So much has been said about marriage lately and when you should or shouldn’t get hitched. Not exactly sure why because I think it should and is up to the individual doing the hitching, but there are a certain few that decided to give their opinion on it. Great. I’m glad. It gave me somethingContinue reading “Is Marriage a Cop-Out?”

What would your Zeitgeist look like?

I called up Google and asked them to make a Zeitgeist for me, but they turned down my offer when most of the clips I sent them were of me sitting on the couch in my pajamas. I don’t blame them. What you just watched was Google’s 2013 Zeitgeist. Zeitgeist is German, meaning “time” (Zeit) andContinue reading “What would your Zeitgeist look like?”

No arms, no legs, no worries…

I’m having a bad day today. You know those days? Nothing is actually wrong, but your attitude and emotions are just a bit off. There are just some days where all you want to do is cry. And you usually find ways to do so. Maybe that’s just a girl thing. Men don’t cry, rightContinue reading “No arms, no legs, no worries…”
