Daily Inspiration: Choosing Happiness

Happiness- the characterization or indication of pleasure,contentment, or joy. Sound familiar? Responses I like to hear to that are- Yesss! That's the best! Or even, I know that feeling!! Usually, however, I get- Huh? Umm, yeah...sure. Right, I guess. For a long time I was guilty of the latter and I must admit I, occasionally, still have slips … Continue reading Daily Inspiration: Choosing Happiness

The World Through My Eyes

The Blog Dahlia

Where did I go? As I walk to the mirror to see what it shows. The face that looks back at me holds-

A resemblance of a girl I used to know. Her eyes, though the same color are darkly tinted with hurt and fear, blood and punishment,confusion and hate.

Her body wears scars of war. A war she physically survived but mentally she’s no more.

Teeth marks, stitches, scratches… Bruised by choking, palms, fists and feet… Knives, belts, bottles,chords…guns… She’s still here but doesn’t realize she already beat defeat.

Why? Only God knows why. Only God can make sense of the life he designed. Only God can describe the pieces he arranged for the puzzle of a life that’s mine.

Only God can describe all the work that he’s done to redirect the pieces of me that I destroyed because I felt

Because I felt they didn’t belong.
