Uprooted in Grief and Fear

I feel the vice grip of fear entangle me this morning as I contemplate writing a blog post, talking myself out of such an endeavor, that God really didn't nudge me at all.  Justifying my disobedience with the fact I am still horribly grieving most days, and He wouldn't ask such a thing of me … Continue reading Uprooted in Grief and Fear

The Unspoken Rules of Disengagement

I saw an excellent movie the other night, titled, ‘A Monster Calls'.  I read this eclectic book of illustrations, intermixed with words, in under 48 hours.  Very few times does a movie's quality compete with the writing, but this was an exception to the rule. Basically, without a spoiler alert, it is a story of a boy and … Continue reading The Unspoken Rules of Disengagement

Trials

Sitting at the kitchen table, I decide to open the pamphlet on the drug Bill will begin in the near future. Five pages long, it is specifically catered to a similar, yet different cancer, as his type does not have specific trials as of yet.

How in the world will I … Continue reading Sometimes the Truth is Hard to Swallow

It is a short exclamation, in the midst of a long message, which makes my heart pitter-patter at the speaker's declaration: Don't ask why, ask what. Not long after, I lose internet connection, and the video shifts to static on my screen. But, instead of attempting to reboot connection and find my whereabouts in this unfinished message, … Continue reading Don’t Ask Why, Ask What

You Think I’ve Got Potential?

She was edgy and somewhat dangerous; one of those sketchy individuals we are better off steering clear. Dangerous like Kit DeLuca, the sidekick of Vivian. The spunky girl with the feisty mouth and shady profession. If you are going, "huh?" right now, I am referring to the characters in the movie, 'Pretty Woman'. To refresh … Continue reading You Think I’ve Got Potential?

Angel in the Restroom

It is rumored, from those who have experienced the presence of an angel and lived to talk about it, that a specific trait among them was characteristic of their divine presence--no, not that being large, white wings. It is said angels have strikingly-blue eyes. Since I am quite certain there is no definitive evidence to prove this theory, I … Continue reading Angel in the Restroom
