Releasing the chains

On Sunday morning, I had 3 or 4 really happy hours. Normally I wouldn’t think that was so unusual, but they’re the first truly carefree hours I’ve had since the breakup. I think it means that I’m starting to round the bend.  Which brings me to an uncomfortable confession.

When I wrote last week about …

Apparently I’m going to hell

Last night a man told me that I am going to hell because I haven’t accepted Jesus as my personal savior.

And thus began my re-entry into the world of socializing with the opposite sex.

Let me back up a bit and give you the context for this particular delight.

Early last summer, I was …

Healing heartbreak

Today I got an email from my dear friend Sheila that called me out on my recent use of the word “heartbreak” and “heartbroken.”

Let me interrupt myself here for a moment and ask – do you have friends in your life who will tell you the full, unvarnished truth?  Not in a mean-spirited or …

Emerging from hibernation

When 2011 ended and took with it the relationship I had hoped might last forever, I spent a lot of time questioning myself.  Never having given my heart fully before, the relationship represented a whole new world for me.

**Let me insert here – I’m not trying to withhold anything by being vague.  If you’ve …

Will you still love me…

I had a profound – and profoundly disturbing – realization this morning as I spoke with my prayer partner.  I was telling her about an upsetting conversation I’d had over the weekend and, as sometimes happens, I started to hear myself speaking as if I were sitting on my own shoulder.  From that place, I …

A Valentine’s Day meditation

I can’t say that I’m much in the Valentine’s Day mood this year.  Had things been different, I would be on vacation in New Mexico right now.

But alas, I find myself single on Valentine’s Day.  Which reminds me of a conversation I had with fellow blogger Momma Sunshine a couple of weeks ago.  She …

The miracle of a broken heart

Father and daughter hold hands

Not calling Mr. Blue Eyes over the last week has taken every bit of will power I’ve got.  I miss talking to him and I’m fairly certain he’d be happy to hear from me.

Here’s the problem – every time I think about talking to him, I go straight into victim mode.  “If I say …

A miraculous year

As the clock struck midnight on Dec. 31, 2010, I had absolutely no inkling that I was just 13 hours away from beginning The Miracle Journal.  True story.

In fact, I had no inkling of most of the things that turned out to be amazing about this year.

I had no idea that I would …
