All Of Us

To write what scares you.

I have to say, I don’t do that, but am willing to try. The scariest thing for me is an intimate, one on one relationship, with a man. I haven’t been able to obtain a lasting one, so I stopped being open to that.

It’s going to be up to God, not me. I have a list of reason’s ‘not to’ participate worthy of a scroll. Like other women my age, I know what I don’t want. That’s easy, but I’m now at a loss of what I do want. Life is simpler alone, but we’re not designed to be alone.

I had a conversation with God over the weekend about it. I was driving into town, just laying it at his feet. On the way back home, I saw a church marque that said,

God created you for more than what you settled for.

Have I settled into this life?

Last night, I went to our local pizza place to pick up dinner. A gentleman who works there opened the door, and stood there holding it open, even though I wasn’t allowed to walk in. I chatted with one of the cooks, took our dinner, and turned to leave.

The receipt fell to the ground, and I paused to bend down and pick it up.

The stranger holding the door said,

Just keep doing what you’re doing, and you’ll be alright.

I thought that was an odd thing for a complete stranger to say, so it must have been a message from above.

Messages like that are for all of us.

  1. Your post was so thought-provoking. I agree that the stranger’s words were a bit odd, but I have to agree, I think you’re going to figure it all out and “be alright.” You did a great job of addressing the things that aren’t easy to write about.

    • Thank you Des. You won’t see me giving a lot of intimate relationship advice. I’m still in class on that one. 🙂 I do however have solid relationships with the handful I let in.

      That message stopped me in my tracks. Thank you Des. I will try and do more! ❤

  2. The message is always delivered; the hint is always around us which we tend to ignore sometimes. God’s way of messaging is unique and divine. Stay blessed, love! ❤

  3. Sometimes I think God will speak to us in a quiet voice in our heads, but the other times he sends us messages and hopefully we are watching for them. You were watching.
