I Forgive

There comes a time for cleansing and a time to reflect on your personal behaviors. A time to acknowledge where you were wrong or you may have experienced an interaction between you and another person and you felt they may have done the wrong thing. There is Power and Redemption in forgiveness.

I am a witness that it removes the hatred and the ill feelings of anger and perhaps one day you will be able to move forward in peace with or without their apology. I want to start from within and work my way through it. Yes, my travel experiences have been very exciting and fun, but it was not always the right thing to do and I am not sure how many people I have abused along the way. I am sorry for the abuse. I chose to open that door to love.

I wanted my eyes to see, my ears to hear, my nose to smell, my feet and my fingers to touch, and my tongue to taste the essence of true love. I was exposed to it all. I was all in. I truly loved.

My love experience had some astonishing and enlightening facts and secrets that were revealed to me. Revelations of good and bad can have its way of turning lives around and it is ok to acknowledge that revelation. His divine truth is only to be embraced and never rejected. Through acknowledgement and acceptance is when there will be a true change. Love is a state of being. It defines who you are and whose you are. When I can forgive, I can say I have accepted the full responsibility of love.

Holy Week

I have the privilege to partake in the presence of the Holy Spirit daily, but during certain times of the year, there’s a special time set aside for worship, adoration, giving thanks, repentance, protection, and praise. We get the opportunity to go around this room and write down our thoughts and we pour out what’s in our minds and what’s on our hearts; not only for ourselves, but for those who are suffering, persecuted and or lost. I do not take this time for granted. I’m very grateful. I’m humble. An awesome place to be. Thank you.

My Top 10!

Traveling does not always require a full itinerary. You can still have fun relaxing.

Top Ten ways to relax if you’re on Vacation

2. Sleep in late

3. Attend a yoga session

4. Drink hot tea or coffee

5. Sit out on the beach for every sunrise and sunset

6. Cook dinner

7. Read a romance novel

8. Visit the Zoo or the local park

9. Volunteer to help the children or the elderly

10. Shake heavily and pop the cork open on a bottle of champagne and let it spill all over you in the shower

Pick any three of these and you’ve got your relaxation for your vacation.

The Love Experience 

When he asked the waiter to display the coffee beans on the dinner table to say, “I Love You, (after our second rendezvous), I thought to myself, ok… you don’t know what you’re getting into entering my realm.  It’s too early to romance me with those three little words, but okay, let’s go. Show me what you got!


As time passed on, he was macho, confident, and adventurous, but not perfect. He was charming, nice, and passionate, but not a leader.  Suddenly, things changed for him, he probably didn’t forsee a great loss, he didn’t see a relocation in his future.  He became even less fortunate in this love experience.  I knew he wasn’t “the right 1” but I wanted to ride it out til the very end.  I did. 

I used to beat myself up about being in a relationship for too long.  I would try to walk away, but end up going right back because I wasn’t ready to live without him.  

He was amazing to me.  But I kept saying, I am trusting in you Lord.  I knew one day I would be able to say,  “You can walk away.”   

I have to admit, it’s hard to let go when you love someone. I knew I loved him from the very beginning, because I had that experience in love. 

I’m grateful for the release!  It’s a release with peace.  No need to go back, because I know that I gave him the best love I had to give.

If you are in the love experience, there’s a valuable lesson for you.  Trust yourself to go through the process and if you need to release, just trust in the Lord.  He will release you.
