Irish Catholic 101: don't cry. Don't show emotion. Ever.
But it was the perfect storm: I'd been pushing myself physically after fracturing my foot early this year, spending lunch hours studying screenwriting rather than eating, and then the news of a friend's sudden passing yesterday.
Shadrach called me over to the kitchen to show me this note from little Ellie, and my heart melted. What, in life, did I do to deserve this love? I'm sure so many of you know this same feeling.
For those who are also suffering today, or any day thereafter, remember: "there is a way that knows the way." And how beautiful it is, to wander through life, finding the way that works for you.
Be strong. Take a moment to yourself in private then get up, go to work, push through. And never forget that time is a friend to us all.
I watched his footsteps as he walked away, I told him to leave, that he shouldn't stay, with the passing months, my health would fade, and I would have no one around to pity me. But I also knew what little resolve I had would deflate if he turned and I saw his face. Then he would look at me and know immediately, that I was lying. My tears of regret and torturous longing could not even hide themselves in the rain. He always said he loved how he could see all of my heart when he looked into my eyes...I've made a mistake, haven't I? @justmy.words
She watched me as I walked away, she said I should leave and shouldn't stay, I just turned, and with a weak goodbye, was gone, no time to grieve or contemplate, what have I done, is it too late, when every fibre and every pore, should fight for her, I want her more, more than she will ever know, but I just turned, and watched a ghost go, no rhyme or reason, no question, Why? my heart in pieces, just want to cry, I'm dead inside, just want to hide..........I've made a mistake, haven't I? @angelfell121
Loved this collaboration with the wonderful @angelfell121 ...really an honor. 😊
#meetmemonday is here! And can I just tell y'all.... I loved Bible college! Even that semester where I worked two jobs and took twenty credit hours with three major project classes... (yeah, don't do that 😱) If God is leading you towards Bible college, then West Coast Baptist should definitely be on your list to pray about!
🍄graduated class of 2007
🍄 met my hubs there three days into our freshman year but made him wait till I graduated (poor guy 😂)
🍄graduated early so I could have time to plan my wedding 🍄 learned the most about ministry from working as a janitor on the work scholarship program 🍄 👆🏻learned that good-hearted people will ignore servants, and that's okay 🍄 because you're doing for God, not to be recognized 🍄 pride means you're looking at you and not God
🍄 you will put in long hours and late nights
🍄 ministry is always worth it and rewarding
Now tell me where you went to college and what God taught you there! 👇🏻🎈
Some Monday morning Mosaic. This is an excerpt from the chapter: On Divorce. _____________________________________________
And then he left. I was the one who told him to leave. I was the one who told him he could not stay. It was a September that he arrived and it was a September that he departed. There were a thousand days in between. I did not take him to the airport. He would not let me, perhaps because I would no longer let him call me his wife, or, perhaps because all of our memories began at airports and this memory, this memory would be our last.
Divorce is just the most awful way of saying goodbye.

How you bath in the morning knowing you have to deal with the haters! 😆😂 Last week we touched on the subject of bullying and it's affect on you, this week we'll talk about steps you can take against bullying and what the law says about work place bullying.
When we're done on this subject you'll go to work feeling more knowledgable on what is and isn't acceptable in the work place. This you'll be at an advantage to better negotiate your stand at work.
Welcome back to the hustle everyone! #monday#motivation#fashionfeed#fashionadvice#empowering
