We're all traveling on this journey, this pilgrim's progression. However, our passports aren't made up of a little book that one can pull out and show at every gate. Instead, I'm speaking about the passport that sits deep within us and is only visible by the Greatest Gatekeeper. We've been to and through places not … Continue reading
Ever find yourself feeling restless, unsettled, distracted and disturbed? Worried-we fear, doubting- we react. We see pain, we feel sadness, and we want to be angry because anger feels strong! I have spent years letting my pain/hurt turn into anger. As time steals along, bitterness hardens a part of my heart, a part of my … Continue reading A Blossoming Breakthrough
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

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
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
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…
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV) Most of us have probably heard this verse before or its many different translations. In the last few months I've heard it, sang it, read it too many times to give … Continue reading Who do you see?
The day is young and already we're carrying heavy burdens. Our hearts wrestle inside of our small chests. You may find yourself this moment crying over a heart-wrenching goodbye, financial struggles, loss or even just scraped knees. We're a few months into the new year and our present circumstance manically projects a tomorrow filled with … Continue reading Remind Us
