I'm a hot-headed, Brooklyn raised, Puerto Rican. I grew up around sayings like, "Que nadie se ponga, conmigo" (Nobody, better mess or start with me!) and "God, don't like ugly!"  I spent many years living by those sayings and others that I don't find appropriate for this PG blog. Point being, you mess with me or mines, … Continue reading

And sometimes we cry

Not because we've lost faith. Not because we feel like God isn't there, or doesn't care. Not because we carry bitterness or unforgiveness. But simply, because it hurts. It hurts to watch your child, hurt. It hurts to come across old anniversary cards written by a now, stranger. It hurts to say goodbye to a … Continue reading And sometimes we cry

Him; Now

Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven... (Matthew 6:10) Often I daydream of Heaven. My eyes have been blessed to see just some of His creative beauty here on earth, yet I can only attempt to imagine the marvelous landscapes and vistas that await us. To think- not a … Continue reading Him; Now

Lies Women Believe…about themselves-Chapter 3

KEY POINTS What we believe about God is crucial because it affects what we believe about everything else. (turn to p. 64) If we have an impoverished view of God, we will become impoverished ourselves. (p. 64) Is the view of ourselves and our sense of worth determined by the input and opinions of others? … Continue reading Lies Women Believe…about themselves-Chapter 3

A Love that heals

During an intimate time of prayer and worship, the Lord began to speak into my heart. I cried out like David, search my heart O'Lord! He is a faithful Father and when He searches our hearts He brings to light what we have kept in darkness. He wants to free us from all of our … Continue reading A Love that heals

Bring it!

It's so very comforting to know that we are loved by a God whose track record is filled with the miraculous! His business, the impossible; His standings-infinite. Every impossibility faced by man was and continues to be overcome and far surpassed than the wildest of imaginations by none other, than, you guessed it-Our Lord, God! … Continue reading Bring it!

Nothing to say

Ever find yourself speechless? Speechless at the awe and beauty of God's creation. Becoming surprisingly aware of the woman your little girl has become. Or holding your son for the first time, knowing that one day his strong arms might hold you. Those are just a few examples I can think of. But have you … Continue reading Nothing to say

Love is Blind

We've all heard the saying, "Love is blind," with both negative and positive connotations. Negatively, the love of something or someone that harms you can blind you from seeing the harm that comes from seeking it out.  Positively, love can blind you from seeing what others see and may deem "unacceptable" like those found in discrimination-color, … Continue reading Love is Blind

What if…

At some point in our lives we toil with the "what ifs." What if I'd made that move or hadn't? What if I'd stayed at that job or married that person. What if.... You come across old pictures that remind you vividly where you were the moment you decided against the "what if" in your … Continue reading What if…

Blooms in the Desert

See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.” (Song of songs 2:11-13) The last weekend of the season … Continue reading Blooms in the Desert
