Will They EVER?

Until very recently there was a time in my life when I actually thought, ‘Man, when are my kids gonna grow up?…are they growing up?…will they ever?’

Time has indeed answered those three very worrisome questions and I’m quite thankful and well pleased with the outcome!

My best advice I can give if anyone were to ever ask me, concerning their children’s arrival at maturity is this:

DO NOT wish for them to grow up before their time!

DO NOT rob them of their fleeting childhood. Let them be children as long as they are called to be that. Just like it’s unnatural to expect a fruit tree to bear fruit before it’s reached its season; your children are no different .Yes, DO train and discipline as needed. However, in their developing years allow room for them to make mistakes as those are life’s best teachers. Let them fail and when they do, be there, offering them grace, mercy and forgiveness. Forgive them, forgive yourself and encourage them to forgive themselves too.

Give them the lesson, let them put  to practice what you taught them in the lesson. Then when they are ready and you know they are prepared enough, give them the test, then walk away and observe them as they take the test. If they pass the test, GREAT! If they barely squeaked by or failed miserably, regroup and reassess, review the lesson, allow for more practice, then test once more. Also, don’t forget to model the principle you are teaching them as best as you can!

Train up a child IN THE WAY he should go and when he is OLD, he’ll not depart from it. I chose this proverb as a guide for me when I was training my children and it keeps manifesting in their lives over and over! Trust God/SOURCE with your children, He is faithful to complete the work He began in them!




Do you love yourself?

You have to love yourself in a healthy, balanced manner. You can’t give to others what you don’t have. When you reject yourself, your setbacks grow worse.How do you overcome that? You must go to the root of the problem and learn to accept yourself, fully.

Not liking yourself causes you to blame others for your mishaps. Surrender your weaknesses to SOURCE/ God and work on your strengths. Admit to your flaws but don’t focus on them. Let Source help you grow instead. Don’t hide what you aren’t good at. The people you need to help you, will manifest. BE who you are and let others be who they are. Lighten up and allow others to be themselves! SOURCE/ God would rather that you be someone who makes mistakes and has a right heart, than someone who has a perfect record of performance.

What you DO is not who you are; you are loved for both! Instead of always saying, ‘I’m weird’ why don’t you change it up and say, ‘I’m fearfully and wonderfully made and that makes me unique!’ Some people don’t like themselves and they don’t know it; they are distant from themselves.

Now more so than in past years the call to come up higher is here for all of us.” He who  has eyes to see, let him see; he who has ears to hear, let him hear.” I have been wondering some things about spiritual gifts that The Bible says exist for us. Have you ever wondered if there are more gifts than what religion has taught us? With God/SOURCE being such a benevolent FATHER  who only gives us good and perfect gifts for our own betterment and well being; why would He not continue to give us more advanced gifts so as to carry on His work here through us?  Yeshua told His followers that they would do these and GREATER works in HIS name. What’s happening that we aren’t seeing greater miracles and wonders? Or what if we are, it’s just that they are happening outside the accepted religious circles of our day?

I grew up going to church and then as a young adult I went to a charismatic community where I learned all about God’s gifts and I was super excited when I realized I could operate in several spiritual gifts so long as God/SOURCE allows me to. I grew dissatisfied in church when I saw the religious leaders wanting to suppress and control what I knew I had received through The Holy Spirit. Some of the gifts I received are the gift of healing, speaking in tongues, prophecy, the gift of faith, dream interpretation, the gift of teaching and others, those are the main ones I operate in; all because I asked! Ask and you shall receive…

As time has passed I have received other tools, physical healing tools that I know for a fact come from above as every good and perfect gift comes from SOURCE/The Father. As I have learned to use these wands, cubes and a wide variety of frequency infused healing tools, I have seen people healed and restored right before my very eyes!

Lately I have asked Source/ God if a gift like speaking in tongues is still relevant and I get a definite yes. Sometimes I speak in tongues as I use my healing wands. I have also been quoting scriptures I’ve memorized, and have seen their power manifest; now imagine taking those very SPIRIT  words and charging them with PURE SOURCE ENERGY and watching them manifest in real time! That is the POWER being made available to us at this very moment.

“And we KNOW that ALL things work TOGETHER for GOOD to them that LOVE SOURCE/God and are called according to HIS purpose.” Folks, ALL our giftings are very needed at this moment in our history! Be bold in your FAITH and KNOW that something greater than we have been taught does indeed exist right now and step up and ask God/SOURCE for MORE! He is faithful to do exceedingly beyond what any of us can imagine! All He requires of you is that you have faith/TRUST the size of a tiny mustard seed…

Love Requires Relationship

Love Requires Relationship

How love dies:

When selfishness stabs it repeatedly

When betrayal bares ugly baby twins: Fear and Doubt

When truth is incessantly violated by a violent violator

Lies kill love quicker than Jaws devoured  the flesh of a hundred victims

Crooked hearts fuck up tender hearts

Everything must die for anything to matter

And thus, lost love is found

Better to have been found than to stay perpetually lost

Independence kills love;

Love dies at the hand of lovers committing a million acts of independence

Love requires relationship:

To deny love of such, is to put your lover’s soul into an eternal state of spiritual anorexia

Love dies from careless lies whispered in the dark

Love dies when you unravel its mystery…



The best tears you cry is when you’re alone. When you cry in some one else’s presence, you feel compelled to explain away how you feel.. The other person feels helpless . Both of you are sad. When you cry alone, you are just being YOU at your most vulnerable and that is good.

No fanfare

No pity

No explaining to do

Just cry it out…

Best places to shed your tears?

Out in the cold rain

In a hot bath/shower

In the warm ocean

Your tears return home in these familiar places

Worst places to shed your tears?

In front of people because most of the time, they don’t know what to do or say…people want to know why. Sometimes whys are not forthcoming.

Mirror, Mirror…

Mirror, Mirror…

I look into the mirror and what do I see?

A new creation

the old has been swept away into the sea-

of forgetfulness.

I have a new role to fill;the old one is obsolete,

it has been swept away

into the sea of forgetfulness,

nothing new exists there,only the old.

I look into the mirror and what do I see?

A new creation who trusts in You more than before.

It’s not a blind trust but a quiet certainty.

a steadfast determination from way deep inside;

a knowing You’ll see me through.

Gone are the old worries, fears and tears,

they tried so long to alienate and annihilate my soul.

Now I know for sure you have it all under control.

From my inception

came so much corruption and deception-

the worst of my enemies.

They fought hard to keep me blind and hopeless.

My blind guides led me to a pit of distress.

 The past has no eyes.

Looking back there for direction is  useless.

The past is an old sage holding up signs,

warning me of the paths I’ve tread on before

and reminding me those I should now avoid.

From my past I only take the good:

memories to warm and comfort,

 on my journey forward.

On my left and right my two loyal friends-


During the worst of times

 I hoped against Hope,

while Faith carried me on her strong shoulders.

Before God builds a new creation,

He sweeps away the old debris.

A new foundation must rest upon solid new ground.

He doesn’t search in the rubble or debris,

those He cast into the sea.

A single cornerstone He saves:

My Faith.

Up ahead I see  brighter days.

God never REBUILDS;

for to re- anything is a do over,

from a pre-existing plan.

 The Master Builder employs  His own blue print:


Mirror, Mirror on the wall,

I see me no longer

fearful, worried or angry.

 Mirror, Mirror on the wall,

 I like the new me…

I  smile at myself and I’m standing tall!

Doubt, Doubt

Doubt Doubt,
you make me ,
you make me pout.
You are a mouse.
Oh I feel quite frumpy,
when I listen to you,
I become a louse.

Doubt Doubt,
and I get nowhere.

Doubt, Doubt,
and I’ll pull all my hair out.

For you see,
doubt IS a tool;
I’m on to you!
I’m nobody’s fool.

Doubt is a sure sign
that I won’t quit or resign.
Doubt proves that I believe,
in something way bigger.

So get out of my way,
don’t come knocking at my door.
You come to visit,
but you can not stay.
I will never listen,
to anything doubt has to say.

We are a nation made up of people of faith. Christopher Columbus came to The New World because his faith told him contrary to what the experts of his day dictated. The Puritans came by faith. Other explorers followed after because of their faith. Faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things unseen. Every immigrant who has set out  from their country of origin has been led by their faith; a faith that hopes for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The evidence of that faith is seen when you come to the U.S. as an immigrant and God blesses you so that you can be a blessing to others.
People of faith began this nation; they fought and many shed their blood for this nation. And it’s going to take today’s people of faith to restore the U.S.A.. Pray for The U.S.A.!
