Where there is a will,
there is a way. 

Find your way through,

what threatens to
keep you down.

Staying trapped
is a choice

Keep trying,
keep growing,
reach for the sun.
It is worth it,
you are worth it!

Love yourself enough to 
believe you can and you will,
peace k

Every second of
every minute,
of every day,
of every month, &
every year

IS a choice

                          regret                 or               gratitude
                          joy                     or               sadness
                          good                  or               evil
                          survivor             or               victim
                          strong                or               weak

23rd psalm

The 23rd Psalm from God rather than to God

I want you to know,
I am here for you always.
You will have everything you need,
I will feed your body and your soul
and show you the path toward peace.
I will never fail you,
I will be your leader on the path.
I know sometimes you will face darkness,
But let me tell you, I’ve been in the dark myself
And I know how to lead you out.
You don’t have to be afraid,
I’m right here,
I will keep you safe.
You will meet people who will try to hurt you,
Or steer you off your path.
Don’t worry, I will take care of you  while they watch.
THEY will see me and know they can not touch you in my presence.
You are mine, I choose you, I will be good to you, and merciful to you for all of eternity in this life and beyond.



With the help of Spirit,
I wrote this the other day. Every time I read it
I feel the love of God speaking directly to me.
My prayer is that you know that God loves you and
speaks to you too.
Listen......... God's love is all around you.

Tried different size paint pens to create this stone
and four tries later, I am happy with it.
Forgiveness is that way too, keep trying until
you are happy with the result.

It can be hard to give and 
even harder to ask for

When I screw up
and I am not ready to admit that I am wrong;
I carry guilt and shame

Guilt and shame grows like a weed
when it is not 'pulled out'
in its early stages.

When I am ready to  admit I am wrong
in my thought, word, and/or deed;
I first must admit it to myself.
That's hard.

I then admit it to my God,
that is hard to.

That's where forgiveness comes in.
MY God, the mother, father, divine creator of all
forgives me, not because I deserve forgiveness,
however, because by asking the almighty
for forgiveness I am saying I will try as hard
as I possibly can to not screw up again;
And by grace I am absolved;
set free to try harder.

I know that my God forgives me and
will forgive you too.
I promise, I know this from
the depths of my heart and soul.

Here's the hardest part;
forgiving myself.

Most of the time I know when I am wrong
and it is my stubbornness that holds me back
from the peace that comes from forgiveness.

A sin is a sin is a sin, no matter what form.
Who are we to judge
which one is greater or lesser than another?
unconditional forgiveness,
works in the same manner;
forgiveness is forgiveness is forgiveness.

'I can forgive but I will never forget'
sets you up for the lack of forgiveness
to start growing again.

We all have experienced sins against
us that we may never truly forget,
however, we can let go of the emotions
associated with them.
Those emotions can and will eat away
at the forgiveness and all of the sudden
the forgiveness of others or ourselves
ends up right back where it was
when the sin was taking up
way to much space in your heart.

I do not have all the answers
and I make it sound a lot easier than
it really is.

keep trying
keep asking for forgiveness 
and most importantly
forgive yourself
so that when you try again
you are beginning with
a clean or at least cleaner slate.

in loving kindness, k

The Anchor Stone

The Anchor:

A weight that holds something down
and keeps it from moving

We all have the choice to
lift the anchor

Anchors are heavy and hard to move
however, once lifted.......

You are free to move on

Travel light!

Welcome yourself home

This morning I took a journey to my future self.
As my present self,
I thought about where I am now 
and then
I started crossing the bridge of my life watching
it pass along without interacting with it.

I looked for myself,
it took a while
however I did find me.
I was welcomed by what I  
envisioned I would look like in 20 years
and in the mirror of my future self, 
I saw peace within me
and all around me.
I was at the entrance to a home, my home
on a lake with a front porch
and I was standing in the doorway
asking my present self to come in.
Inside I saw
soft comfortable furniture,
photographs of my family and my friends
on the tables and on the walls.
I saw reminders of the things that bring me joy.
I saw the physical and spiritual gifts 
given to me by those who love me.
I saw only JOY.
I breathed it in,
I welcomed the peace.
I thanked my future self for getting me to
where I have always wanted to be
and I smiled as I returned to the bridge
and started the journey back to my present self.
As I traveled back,
I took heed to notice what the journey
to my future self looked like
I saw, smelled, listened, heard and tasted
the journey and it was magnificent.
All of the triumphs and trials
had ultimately
brought me home.

I am here now,
back in my present life
and I am no longer afraid.
I know where I am going
and I trust myself to get me there.
JOY, I'm coming for you
thank you for showing me the way.

Go visit yourself 20 years from now
exactly where you are supposed to be
and know that you, too, have everything
inside of you to get there.
You are a perfect gift from God
Believe in yourself

Listen to your best self!
Your JOY is calling you home

With hope, love, and strength
for the journey
