When we wrap our lives around the everyday, we often forget to look after ourselves. We cloak ourselves in the garment of “work and discipline.” When it’s finally served its usefulness, we’ve missed the things that really matter. When we don the apparel of perfection, the disguise often acts as a cover up for the things going on inside. Eventually the fabric wears out. The threads begin to fray. There is nothing left but the worn, tattered rags of a lost existence.

We have wasted our time thinking about what could have been or what might be.  Now its time to shed those worn out clothes.  It’s time to snuggle into the warm attire Christ provides for us through His love. It will serve as protection against our enemies; as a royal cloak – denoting our future in paradise; it will shine brighter than any star and reflect off of us onto others; it will have value beyond compare.

How do we get these wonderful new clothes?  All we have to do is ask.

I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
