In The Now


The pieces of me are scattered all over the floor.

As I try to remember who I once was before….

all your chaos. All the undone harm.

That was done to me by your strong arm.


I’m left here wondering how you thought it was right.

To drag me through what you thought was your fight.

Forced to see what can’t be unseen

This ugly world of yours is just so mean.


Because of you, I’m left to pick of the pieces of me.

Because of you, my heart and mind don’t agree.

Because of you, I’m forced to forgive.

Because of you, I simply can’t, so how do I live?


In my mind, revenge is something to look forward to.

But my heart says, “Vengeance doesn’t belong to you.”

Where will I find peace for each broken piece?

From your painful clutches will I ever have release?


I hear a shouted whisper among the clanging of the pieces

I feel a love in Your voice that never decreases…

“Child I will give you life and more abundantly.

Just hold on and listen to my love constantly.”


“Your wounded spirit is about to fly.

For your pain and anger are going to finally die.

Forgiveness will come to you as I show you how

to love like I love, to not look back and to live in the now.”

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.
