Nectarines for the Needy? (a moment of #LiA)

So, SO much moves my heart these days. In SO many ways ….. I have been near tears since moments ago, a moment with a child in this place, feeling like I am in a war zone on the street where I live, loud police choppers almost 24/7, ambulances, guns popping on and off, police sirens […]

#LiA Made My DAY!

On my errands this am, I saw a young woman begging. I had forgotten my bag of goods for people begging before, and strongly got that I needed to have it today. SO glad I listened to that still, small voice! I chose to hand her two items I had in it ~ a granola […]

“Let Me Know You NOW” (poetry)

As I write this my heart is processing another death of another sistah from breast cancer. FAR too young, good, beautiful, with an amazing husband and daughter that she lovedlovedloved …… it is hard on the heart …… And I know sometimes it’s hard to know what to say to someone when someone has died.
