Embrace YOU!

Embrace YOU!

Yea, I’m talking to YOU. The you that you don’t allow others to see. The goofy YOU. The outrageous YOU. The serious YOU. ALL of YOU!

Time to get YOUR shine on. Time to own WHO YOU ARE.

God and Life are PROUD of YOU, beloved. Yea, YOU. The goofy you. The outrageous you. The serious you.

This world needs ALL of YOU. This world is in desperate need of those who are not afraid to….BE!


Be YOU!!

YOU are:




Your life, matters. Your thoughts, matter. WE, this world, NEEDS your:




Hope, beloved. Dream, beloved. Daydream, beloved.

YOU can do this. YOU will do this.

As will I.

YOU are amazing. As, am I.

Don’t let ANYTHING silence YOU.




Words, said to you.

Words, said about you.

You ARE:




Beloved, stop looking around, in hopeless, wondering how things will change, if things will/can change and BE the change.

Open your heart, to others. Allow others, to open their heart(s), to you.

Your life DOES matter. If it did not, why the world, would the world, the enemy, circumstances, situations try and convince you that your voice is ‘just’ that. A voice.

Know ye not that ‘just a voice’ has, can and will continue, to change lives. Think of someone who changed your life, lifted your spirits with ‘just’ a kind word or two. Think of the folks who have been lifted, by YOU, by YOUR care, by YOUR words, by YOUR efforts.

You are changing EVERYTHING, simply by being YOU. The world paints success by how much folk have or don’t have. God and Life are ever shouting, to us all, it’s in how much we LOVE that is important.

How much we love ourselves. How much we love one another.

I stopped writing, for a bit. To take a break, yes. But, if I were to be 100, I would admit that I have asked myself what would be missed by my missing blogs? What do my words mean? By extension, what do I mean?

Am I, though, just words upon a page? And, if this be so, is this not something to be celebrated? I think so. I can not tell you how many joyous days I have experienced, reading the words of other bloggers. Their stories, their lives, have touched my heart, in more ways than I could ever begin to count.

I think of words written, to me, that have influenced me, decades after they were originally written. I have letters, tattered from being folded/unfolded, that lifts my spirits, still.

I think of God’s Words, inspired and written, many, many moons ago, that change me, daily. Words upon a page.

We, each of us, are ALL words, upon a page, upon this stage, this thing, we called life. Wars have started, because of words. Wars have ended, because of words. Amazing.

WE are amazing:



All, of us.

Time to BE amazing, beloved.

Step into your uniqueness. Embrace, it. Embrace, YOU.

Lift your head, beloved. Don’t belittle or be ashamed of what you see. I see, greatness. God and Life sees, goodness.

Be, great.

Be, good.

Be, YOU.

Be, free.

It’s time, beloved, don’t you think? Time to stop hiding your precious heart. This world NEEDS you. God and Life NEEDS you. Your family NEEDS you. Your community NEEDS you. Yea, I’m talking to YOU!

You got this!

Fear, not. And, if you fear, so what? Do it, anyway. Be you, anyway. Don’t worry about being judged. I will tell you a secret:

Those ‘judgy’folk are not actually judging you. They see your boldness, your acting in spite of fear or absent fear. They see these things and are jealous, afraid, envious. So, they lash out. Be understanding, beloved, when this happens. For, they are truly really lashing out, at themselves. Judging, themselves. Hating, themselves. Love them. Keep being you. And, slowly, they may also find the courage to LIVE and walk as you.

YOU are, amazing.

I, am amazing.

Don’t be afraid to shine, beloved. Let your light, your life, your love, shine brightly. Many WILL be warmed, by YOU, should you find the courage to….BE.

BEing with you,
