This is my first attempt at blogging. We shall travel this new path together and discover treasures as we walk along.
I am a writer and my senses are always alert to the possibility of new stories or poems. I find stories in my own past, little things that happened that I can build on as well as major life-changing events that brought about drastic life changes. I also find stories in the little every day events that happen around me. The smell of baking bread brought about my first children’s book. Frustration with a family member gave birth to a poem on Wisdom. Tremendous loss brought about the story behind my first published novel and the broken heart of someone I love brought about a book I am working on regarding imprisonment.
My heart is always open to the possibility of an uplifting, enlightening and healing story. Life, in my humble opinion, is a series of hurts, forgiveness and healing. The joy that comes with healing cannot be measured. It is encapsulated in a smile, in a sparkle in someone’s eyes and in the touch of another’s hand. It brings peace in the storm and calms fears and tears. Emotional healing comes when we understand there is nothing we can do but let go and give it to God. No matter how many times you have been hurt, no matter how deeply you have been hurt, there is a GOD who cares. HE is just waiting for your permission to step in and heal your heart, mind and soul.
Have a blessed day.
