This is a place of ME. This is a place where I will let the walls down and be honest. Joys and stories or tears and heartbreaks, they will all be here. Devotionals to poems, my heart is open to you. I will love well. I will love you and honer you by allowing you into my brokenness and the truth that God has reviled to me. This is a place of Me. Continue if you dare ;)

Jennie (Then She Handed Me A Flower)

I had a bad day.
A boy broke my heart.
I feel worthless, ugly, and alone.
Then she handed me a flower,
Reminding me I am precious, beautiful, and loved.

Reminding me God has a plan even when I don't.

First day of school.
Wandering the campus alone and scared.

My Dad touched me for the last time.
Heart and body shaking and broken.

Night mares flooded again.
Seeing her face, the face I destroyed.
Then she handed me a flower,
Reminding me God was holding her forever.

Lost my job, car wouldn't start, and rent is due.
Feeling like a failure and hopeless.
Then she handed me a flower,
Reminding me God provides and gives hope.

Looking in the mirror seeing only trash.
Cuts hidden show my strength and weekness.

Homework due and the baby is sick.
Always behind, unable to catch up.

Emotions of anger, fear, and uncertenty.

The scale read 92 lbs.
It dawns I have a problem as dread grips me.
Then she handed me a flower,
Reminding me I can do all things through Christ.
12
I had a bad day.
Life was over wealming the gun was waiting at home.
Dead emotions no reason to live.
Then she handed me a flower,
It saved my life.

12 Roses
12 People
12 Lives

1 Person listening to God's prompting.
What would happen if we all listened a little better?
12 x ?
How many lives changed?
How many people saved?
Think about that.

Thank you my best friend. You have inspired me. You DO make a difference. I love you!
