This World is Tough on Everyone …

COURAGE … that quality of mind or spirit enabling one to meet danger or opposition with fearlessness, calmness, and firmness

ENCOURAGE … To inspire with courage, hope, or resolution, hearten, help, foster, be favourable toward, boost confidence

DISCOURAGE … To weaken courage or lessen confidence, deter, dissuade, obstruct, hinder, attempt to repress by disapproval

And APATHY … silence, inaction, indifference, unconcern, lack of care, emotion and interest is discouragement’s silent weapon

THIS WORLD is tough on everyone. THIS WORLD would be much better if we encouraged, rather than discouraged each other.

Understanding the Big Picture of “Sowing and Reaping”

Limited minds and experiences often don’t understand the full scope of sowing and reaping.

I certainly did not. In my youth, when my lack of truthful knowledge about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, plus very harmful experiences turned me away from God, I had no idea of the real consequences. Then, and for years later, as I worked my way back to Him, I sought to understand why He did not prevent what happened to me, starting in childhood. I could not fathom why He allowed me to become so devastated and depressed most of my life. And even when I cried out to Him 25 years ago and said, “Take me home or give me a purpose,” I had no idea of the work I would have to do and He would have to do in and through me as He brought me back to my true self.

Because I had grown so weary, for some time, I have asked Him to take me home (suicide never an option … the only good thing that came out of my Catholic upbringing because with my experiences I thought earth was hell and I wanted to be freed from it, not live in it for eternity). Last night was no different as I cried a little more, but stopped because I know He wants me to stop crying and just keep doing as He has asked. I think of all that has to be done, the money, the people, and I stumble in faith … but this morning He answered my prayer by using the words from a pastor I don’t usually watch.

As I was flipping through the channels I paused on Triumph Church as the pastor said, “This message is for someone who needs to hear this right now. You need to stay and pass on, anoint your successor as Elija did Elisha.” The message uplifted my spirit and soul, knowing deep down it was the answer to my prayer … that all my hardships and efforts were not, are not, in vain, that they will serve as the foundation for others to build upon. And as for me, I will be able to pass the lead role on so I can enjoy the life He promised as a creative writer, artist, and much more, including being a loving wife for the rest of my days. Now that’s some sowing and reaping! Amen!

To Whom It May Concern

I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well during this very challenging time.

I think of you often, miss you a lot, and am sorry for any and all ways I hurt you and continuously widened the distance between us. I don’t know how things got so bad between us, but I do know regardless of everything, I still love you very much.

As for me, I am okay. My pensions have stabilized me financially and I am working to monetize my writing in different ways to ramp up my income to move, buy some motorized wheels again, and grow my company so I can hire my team to share the load and diversity of work.

Much of my time here these past several years has been focused on unravelling why my life derailed to the point that it did. A lot of time and effort was required to investigate, discover, analyze, and to connect the dots, which I am sharing in my new book, Broken Compass. The other challenge has been how to tell my story without telling other people’s stories in order to respect their privacy. If you read Broken Compass when it is released for publication, you will be assured of that fact. Being able to share what I have learned through my study, research, and healing will help many people and families understand and deal with “invisible minorities” better in order to foster new ways for us all to be inclusive of all types of personality types, love languages, plus learning, communication, and socializing aptitudes in order to foster more respect and love for everyone.

The other important thing that has stabilized my life significantly has been studying Christianity in order to discover the inconsistencies and misinformation that turned me away from God in my youth and has now returned me, not to a religion, but to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit’s presence in my life.

The scope of my vision, driven by the depth of my respect, compassion, and love, no longer scares or intimidates me, but soothes, calms, and excites me as I keep moving forward with what is in my heart and soul to do, for me, my loved ones, and for everyone … because I know its source.

Wholeheartedly,
