Intimately worded by looking at a Ragged Bible

A lot of events in our life may surprise us, being very weird, good weird. Life might be throwing us about swiftly and profoundly in so many different ways. Having us continue to pull our hopeful heart together with slippery fingers.

What we want isn’t always what it seems no matter how conscientious we might be.

A mother of 4, writes:

I am learning to move forward with all that I am and that incudes: authenticity, truth, grace and love. I am doing well in my wait. I remind myself that my self-work gives tremendous value to my self-worth. #BeAWholeMovement #FreedSoul Singleness Relationships His plans.

Writing is her muse, her love:

my Me. You are privy to seeing my soul. My hopeful, encouraging soul. I think with all the uncertainty in this world you should be encouraged. It is a necessity of life—to encourage one other. You are amazing by choice; Continue to be! {Me,Intimately worded / About me}

When looking at her life she also noticed her Bible.

As I sit here meditating, reading the word, and other reading tools that help me go deeper into God’s word I notice my Bible. I notice how worn it is, how the tears, nicks and picks have crept in over the years. I notice how the binder has completely ripped and the back of my Bible, my ragged Bible is falling apart. I notice how the faces of the women appear bubbled, out of focus and I smile. Well I tear up and smile. {My Ragged Bible}

For us that looks a good sign. In our lifetime we shall need more than one Bible book. The “Book of books” in our hand, should be used so regularly that, yes, it shall show cracks ….
It might well be that the appearance of your Bible shall be a replica of your worn-torn, war –wearied, heartbroken-heart and healed/healing soul.

For the writer we present today, admits:

God has watched over me. God has pushed me; He has talked to me and He has loved me because He promised He would. His capacity to love us without the pull of guilt or you owe keeps me hinged to Him. God gives value to our souls. {My Ragged Bible}

my ragged Bible, this ragged Bible, my, “Aspire, the new Women of Color Study Bible.” My ragged Bible is in pieces, tattered, pages bent, filled with love notes written by my kids; highlighted words that hem my heart…written for purpose of guidance, written for purpose to encourage, written for the purpose to build, written for the purpose to heal…my ragged Bible, is written for the purpose to initiate and cultivate purpose.

Our need, our individual want to prosper, to be better in life, to live brighter than yesterday cannot be done without Him. I encourage you to find your niche and allow God to incorporate the work, the journey; the balance required to live your greatest life. Again, I write,

“To understand God, you have to spend time with God.” {My Ragged Bible}

Often it might take some long time, but we get there, to come to see …

With all that comes with gaining a trauma victim’s trust it has been my intimacy with God that carries me through each session. At times, the science and the spiritual do not mesh and then there are times you cannot have one without the other. There are different paths that lead to healing. I marvel at these concepts and therapeutic techniques. I love Counseling! I do.

My life has by far been a complete God-experience; He has kept me when I did not recognize how He keeps. I could not have identified my professional identity without my spiritual journey. My first day begins after Thanksgiving.

Remain grateful, hopeful and I beg you to, choose the larger life.

“The beginning is most important part of the work.” –Plato  {Promises, Hope and my Heart}

Through the Peacock's Eyes

When I was asked by Joe at Iamforchange if I                                                                     would like to co-write some poetry withblue-flowers-wallpaper him, I thought it would be a fun, experimental, and very creative writing project, especially since I haven’t written much poetry in the last couple of years. We decided to compose the following poems inspired and intuited from the Tarot. For the first poem, we each drew a three card spread and alternated lines. For the second poem, we each drew a Celtic Cross spread and alternated lines. Here are the results:

#1 New Beginnings

The chains that had bound no longer found

But the process of grief still lingers

A good message brings courage to follow dreams
