Quiet Times…

The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again.


 When I have a million thoughts going on in my head, the only way to deal with them is to write or distance myself from people. I tend to get very quiet as well. I wish people would get that about me and stop taking offense because when they do – it annoys me to know end, which in turn causes me to be “short tempered’ with folks.

As I sit here and type, sometimes the words Ive written seem as though Im reading someone elses life when in reality, that life is – Mine! The only way I can explain any of it is – Ive come this far by the grace of God. He has protected me. Kept His distance from me to draw me closer to Him. Continues to love and guide me, even though I feel like I dont deserve it sometimes.
However, He reminds me that I AM a child of God
Inspite of all my imperfection.

I dont know what the future has in store for me considering how my past has been but this I do know……
In my saddness, there is happiness
In my tears, there is laughter
In my fears, there is courage
In my failures, there is success
In my disappointments, there is hope 
In my doubts, there is confidence
In my hurts, there is LOVE…
