Fold ’em

woman-folding-playing-poker.jpgYour guilt, your games, they haunted me. Over and over again, the same tricks.

I would play fool to your folly. Not knowing how to put a halt to your trickery.

Lies, deception, manipulation, all passed out freely. Handed to us unexpected ones, who had their hands out for something different.

Innocence, naivety, (or was it plain faith in the loved one?) Stripped, stolen too early.

An empty shell of what should be, walked toward the Majestic Presence.

Flowing rivers of living water freely handed out to the needy. The empty. Me.

The deceived now free and enlightened; gives to small hands held out. The enlightened now onto your trickery and deceit.

Breaking the cycle, new blood traveling, a beautiful family tree stands strong.

You can still have those living waters flow in you. It’s not too late to put down your hand of deceit and proclaim, “I fold!”

Go unto Him, for you labor and are burdened. Mom, Go before it’s too late….take up His yoke; He will give you rest.

I'm a stay at home wife and mother of 3. My oldest is 23 who lives at home because she is a delight and is autistic. My other 2 are in elementary school. They are all 3 girls. Raising an autistic daughter isn't the same as raising ones without. So it's like starting anew with some things. I will partly write about this. I have overcome many addictions with the only Savior Jesus for 8yrs. I will also write partly on addiction and how I see it and overcame it. I believe you will find my musings encouraging, helpful and sometimes a bit funny since I tend to be someone who holds nothing back. The purpose of my blog at first was to use it as an outlet, a way to get things out of mind and onto paper. But it has turned into a place I can go to encourage others with a short story, poem or to simply talk and try to relate. I just started blogging a month ago (April 2018) I wish I would've done it sooner! I promise to never try to sell you anything but Jesus' love. Be patient as this site may take on a few changes as I try to find my place in it and where I want it to go. I have many ideas swirling...stick around! Thanks for reading.
