No, Not You

The fiery darts I’ve watched come your way, leaves me astounded.

How do you get knocked down so much but yet stay so grounded…

in God? Never once did you turn your back on Him.

While your heart would break, your light of faith would not dim.


If anyone I knew had a right to point and blame, it was you.

Crumble to the floor, lay in pity and stew.

But, not you.

No, not you.


And yet here you are again, blindsided, shocked and hurt.

But anger, hopelessness somehow you’re able to avert!


If anyone I knew had a right to throw up their fists, it was you.

Jaw set, ready to rumble, letting anger brew.

But, not you.

No, not you.


And if I asked you how do you do it, I know what you’d say…

“If I don’t keep my eyes on His love, I also will lose my way”

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.

      1. You’re welcome Amy! I’m doing pretty good all things considered. No, God allowed all this to happen and He will see me through to the other side. Things will get better in a few months. Thanks for all your support and prayers!

        1. The woman I wrote this about has been through it all. Lost one of her 3 sons in a car accident. You know about her other son as I asked for prayer for him. She lost her first grandson at 4 yrs old. She also raised her 3 sons financially for many years. Gid saw her through. And He still is seeing her through. He is seeing you through as well! God bless you

    1. Thanks! I enjoyed yours today as well. I’ve been down the road you wrote about.
      I lost twins at 30 weeks with twin to twin transfusion. Love to read a post about that and about twins and the different types inuterine
