  • I heard these two guys on my campus talking about how they have ingrained misogyny and how they want to work on it, and it was so good to hear. 💛

  • Honestly if I don’t live in a world that Hozier creates with only a dying rose and the ashes of a former lover wherein I am a fox that lives in a mossy log only communing with the horned owl that peacefully rests on the branches above my head during a full moon then what’s the point

  • Prompts Based Off My Stories #68

    Despite everything that happened, I told my friend that everything would be ok. No matter what new horror we faced, I told my friend everything would be ok. Today, as I look across this broken city, I can plainly see the truth.

    I was right. Though it took time, everything turned out ok.

    The broken city had been mended at the seams. From the glued cracks sprang beautiful and wonderful things.

    After all, the darkness only makes the inevitable light all the sweeter to behold.

    You can start with the same few sentences and end up with a completely different story.

    If you use it, please leave a link to my account so people can find me. Also, if you use it, please send a link to me! I’d love to read anything you write with it, I’m curious how our stories will differ (≧▽≦)

    No matter how much everything sucks now, it will eventually be alright.

    Today I’m grateful for our new beautiful kitchen cabinets! It’s been 4 months since we’ve had a kitchen and it’s all starting to come together.

    I’m grateful for listening to The Dark Tower in bed, in the dark with my love.

  • Our Part Of the Contract

    “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Psalm 91:1-2ESV

    You’ve read the story of Noah and the Ark, Genesis 6-9. God found one good person on earth. He commissioned Noah —built an ark. God sent animals to ride on the ark. Meanwhile, people laughed at Noah; didn’t believe in floods. End result— every other living creature, not in the ark, died.

    Psalms 91 is the ark God built for every God-fearing believer, since King David until now. As satan tries to “…steal, kill and destroy…” John 10:10a, God’s prepared an ark for those who would commit to do three things— our part of the contract.
    “Dwell” —to live or stay as a permanent resident; reside.
    “Abide” —to endure, sustain, or withstand without yielding or submitting:
    “Say” — to express in words; state; declare;

    I find in myself— I’ve lived in the Lord, until something like sickness, or pain came along. Then I’d ‘say,’ ‘how this can be happening to me,’ instead of refusing whatever sickness satan handed me. Anyone else with me?

    God put into my heart recently: a dream from the 1980’s was going to start coming to pass. My dream was— there was no food on the table. All the place settings were made. We held hands as a family, prayed, and food appeared on our plates to eat. Now God is showing me, whatever is needed will be there.

    V3 “…He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler” (Bird hunter)— satan wants to take out God, instead traps for us. “and from the deadly pestilence.”  (A deadly or virulent epidemic disease.) Can anyone say Coronavirus?

    V4 “…under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and buckler.” (To be a shield to; support; defend; protect.) Speaks of gathering us like a mother bird gathers her chicks, to keep them safe.

    V5 “You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day,” (War or chemical warfare?)

    V6 “nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, (Man-made diseases?) nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.” (Nuclear war? Tornadoes? Hurricanes?)

    V7-8 “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked.” Watching disasters all around, people dying everywhere and not be able to help— Only being able to thank God for rescuing you and I.

    V9-10 Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place— the Most High, who is my refuge—“ (Reward for choosing to believe God.)
    “no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent..” (An epidemic disease that causes high mortality; pestilence. Any widespread affliction, calamity, or evil,)
    We can insert the name of every influenza virus known to man, Bubonic plaque, etc. Take communion on this scripture, believing God will keep us safe from whatever sickness is out there. Bring your family into your “tent” with you through prayer and receiving the sacraments.

    V11 “For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.” Supernatural assistance. I’m so thankful for them.

    Getting caught up to the negative with all the horrors of today is easy. God is calling us “Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate,” says the Lord…” 2Cor 6:17NASB.

    Continue dwelling, abiding in God’s secret place. Telling God and others of God’s goodness to us. Will you do this? It’s your choice. You choose.

    PRAYER: Father God thank You for providing us with Your secret place. Help every reader to dwell-abide in You, saying by praising You, in Jesus name I pray.

  • Call me old-fashioned but I believe in objective truth. I believe we can know not only the physical world around us but that we can know the truth about the meaning of life and the value of a human being. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of doubts about how this works every day, especially living in a rapidly post-modernizing world that rejects objective truth as oppressive and tells us to find freedom in our own definition of the world, but if I can’t know the meaning of life or that it’s wrong to murder or steal than I can’t live in peace or participate effectively in society. I will always be worried about someone killing me for the heck of it or doubt my self-worth because no one can agree on the value of a human life. And I don’t even want to imagine the communication nightmare that ensues from a firm belief in subjective truth. 

    Deep down I want to belong. I want to understand the world in both its physical complexities and its metaphysical ones. I want to know the truth rather than defining it. How prideful would I have to be to say that I know what is best for me? I have only lived this life once; this is the farthest I’ve ever been. 

    That’s it. An honest quandary. Feel free to respond, conversation is welcome!

  • An Introduction Letter

    01/28/20 @ 7:40 pm

    I don’t know where to start, so I’ll begin with an introduction.

    My name is Kay, because I don’t know that I feel like sharing my real name right now. I’m 31, I’m single as fuck, and I live alone in my apartment with one little goldfish. I also write books under a pseudonym that I’m not ready to share with you while I’m sharing these stories.

    I’ve posted here before, and I think I’ve hinted at my issues with depression before.

    The other day I posted this: “I don’t think people realize what I go through. And that’s why oversharing is a thing - maybe I want you to know what my battles are so that you understand. Because let’s be real, we don’t think about the problems people go through unless they talk about them. And why shouldn’t we? We all have problems, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t talk about them… except that some people don’t care.”.

    Over the last six months I’ve been trying to find a good combination of medication to subdue my depression, or at least make it bearable. It’s been hell.

    Depression is kind of like that feeling you get in your fingers when you’re up very high and youre afraid of falling. Now make it fill your chest- a sort of overpowering dread to do even as much as brush your teeth. It’s not having the energy to get up and do the dishes, but beating yourself up because they’re gross and you know you should. It’s like being sick, but no fever, no throwing up, nothing you can show your employer and say “see, I’m really not ok today.” There’s bad days, and there’s horrible days. There’s ok days. It’s being around a group of supportive, wonderful ladies (shoutout to my bookclub) and still feeling just outside of it, and coming home to cry even though you really did have a nice time.

    Changing medications has been hard. It left me feeling like this for the better part of the last 5-6 months. It affected every part of my life, including leading me to leave a job I rather enjoyed (more on this later).

    I’m doing better but the last couple days have been 6/10s. The feeling in my chest has come back because I’m finishing up some pills before I start some new ones. I have high hopes for what we’re trying next (more on my opinion about antidepressants and medications later).

    It’s hard to be optimistic when depression is sitting on your chest, but I’m doing quite well I think. I have an amazing support system.

    This is just my introduction. I want to tell you more about my whole journey, but that’s another post or ten or whatever.

    It was suggested to me that I do this. I welcome comments and direct messages. If I can help you, I will try, but as always I cannot replace a therapist or counselor, nor am I qualified to give advice on medications (I refuse to name my medications for this reason). People are different and require different medications, and only you and your doctor can determine what’s best for you.

    Sorry, I felt that disclaimer was needed in this intro.

    I love you guys and hope someone gets something positive from what I share.

    Love always,

    💕Kay

  • Let the weak say, I am strong
    Faith is rising, mountains fall away
    You are always holding on to me.

    You are the strength of my life
    You flood the darkness with light
    I throw myself on Your never failing love.

    You are the strength of my heart
    I’m running into Your arms
    I throw myself on Your never failing love.

    I will walk and not grow faint
    Through the valley, You will make a way
    You are always holding on to me.

    Almighty Savior
    You are the anchor for my soul
    Your name is greater
    Greater than any other name I know.
