Roots on solid foundation...

Why do I fight the inevitable?

I didn't always plant my roots on a solid foundation... in fact, for the past 35 years, I've made my own way through a slippery slope of crazy.  While at times it was very fun and seemed like a wonderful adventure... it also brought a lot of unnecessary heartache and distress.  As I continue to move towards a path of forgiveness and Love, I find that's not always an easy road.  In fact, most people ignore it, pretend it doesn't exist, booze it down, drown it away with busyness, etc.  Yes, I did for so long.  No more -- no pretending or running away from anything.  I will choose to continue to face all the fears.  With my roots planted firmly on solid ground, I can do anything with Him, who is in me.

When I struggle with choosing obedience (not having control, which I like) I am thankful I have wonderful women there to remind me that I don't have control anyway.  Obedience is learning that Faith takes over and I don't need to be led by fear of the unknown.  <3  It's not easy, but its a better life --- this I know --- this I am learning. 


  1. I am so proud of you! God smiles upon us when we are obedient. How beautiful is that?! :)

  2. Thank you God for my best friend!!!
