Living in my NOW

More and more we are learning who we are.  Not so much in the self-conscious descriptions of our youth or the labels of our early adult years, but more in the way we are simply at peace with ourselves.    Is this the fullness of time?  The set time?  The appointed time?  The time of life?  Or maybe we should just embrace all of these times and call it “Now” .  In “Now” it is where we are to take stock of our life and we realize how much we have changed. We pick it up, examine it then we realize…we are softer, gentler, wiser, and calmer than before. In our "Now" we are becoming more fully and completely who we were created to be! We have now moved from “successes to significance” . I believe it is in our "Now" , God wants to redeem all of the broken heels, chipped nails, dead-end jobs, broken marriages, less-than perfect children, bad perms. He needed us to get those things out of the way. Yes, He was with us back then, but He really wants to be wi

It's still my season of Jubilee!

On this 8th month (New Beginnings) on this 12th day (Divine Order) I enter the 3rd (Perfection) anniversary, in my 50th year (Jubilee)! ******************************* Now, in my 50’s I no longer ask “ what do I want to do when I grow up” … I haven’t decided to grow up yet!  But I can tell you I am much closer to it now than I ever was in my 20's, 30's, or 40's and there's a whole world waiting for me to discover.           The first half of my life was a whirl of activity.  There never seemed to be “enough”!  Enough time, enough money, enough…!  I marvel at all the things I felt I HAD to do.   Now I ask, where was I in a hurry to go? And there was all that noise back then, and there’s so much silence now.  Yet in this silence, I hear God calling me to Himself.  He has waited patiently as I raised my children, built my resumes, and formed the church committees…yes all the noise.    Here’s what I now see:   God wants me to spend the second half of m

Wounded Woman Warriors

My favorite action movie of all time is ‘Rambo 1 st Blood’ .   Rambo was some kind of warrior!  One that they had never encountered before.   What I remembered the most, this warrior was in the fight of his life, not because he decided he had an enemy, but they decided “he” was their enemy! He became wounded so many times during this fight, yet he could only stop long enough to stitch up his own wounds.   Far from being healed,  he knew he had to find a safe place to stitched himself up long enough to fight another day! Women, once a month we have a experience be it moderate or severe how to physically and emotionally “endure”, “manage” or "ignore" PAIN. It is just how we are created. "Wounded Women Warriors” , I must say there is a time we must come in from the battle.  Not just to stitch up your wounds, but it is time to really heal.     Why is this so critical?  Because many of us are in active ministries, vocations or leading corporations, yet we are ser
