Corona Survivor Chronicles, Our Story – Part 2

While my and my husband’s individual and collective biological experiences with COVID 19 were harrowing, nothing really prepared us for the psychological and spiritual difficulties we faced. When I say nothing, I mean nothing. I have been a psychotherapist for 20 years. We have been people of faith nearly our whole lives. We love God…

Complete Rest Is Complete Faith

I pushed myself a little further and did 3 miles today. While walking and praying, I heard clear as day, “Remember, complete rest is complete faith.” My prayer is for an obedient spirit to enter into complete rest. OAN: September is a new month so I’m setting new goals. I’m being gentle with myself but…

Unnecessary Fruit

Sometimes we need hard times to happen in our lives. We can be like a tree bent over with over ripe fruit; becoming overburdened with people, places, things and feelings that no longer serve us. Trials will clear out the unnecessary and clear the way for true growth. Don’t be afraid when your “tree” is…

Monday Affirmation- KP Edition

Today’s affirmation is right on time for KP. I have learned during my journey that adversity presents with it a life lesson; I will not be released from the trial until I learn the lesson. In this season, I am learning to engage in complete rest. I am learning to be more in tune with…

Find Your Village

For fellow autism parents with more than one child…. Most folks know the story, but for those that don’t… My second son, Moo, is my faith baby. I was scared to death when I found out I was pregnant with him. I didn’t think I would be able to give him the attention he needed…

Magnolias and Momentum

Walking in the rain is NO JOKE! However, I am determined to keep my momentum going. I am motivated by my recent weight loss and exercise regimen to keep pushing forward. That doesn’t mean walking in a steady downpour is pleasant or something I even WANT TO DO. But you know what helped me this…

Restoration and Answered Prayers

Last week, I cleaned out the flower bed beside my side door. I felt so proud of myself because the bed looked like it could “breathe”…..until I looked and saw I had pulled off a caladium leaf. I was so sad! I waited soooooo long for my caladium to break ground and grow! I stood…

Walk Through The Rain

I had to laugh at myself this morning. I was hoping for a drizzle and got much more rain than that while walking. I was hoping my thin poncho would protect me and it kinda did😂. I’m used to the rain now; I’m learning to focus on other things: praying, listening to music, counting my…

Tuesday Truth With KP

The scripture that shares “…..and the truth shall set you free..” sounds great, right? Until we come to understand the true meaning of Maya Angelou’s saying, “Once you know better, you do better.” Many people would rather be bound to a pretty lie than be accountable to a truth that may require a whole new…
