I feel like I keep making a pattern of being away and coming back.. Goodness I'm usually more put together than this. As most of you know I live on the East coast in North Carolina. On the 16th of this month (last Saturday) there were recorded to be 62 tornadoes between here and South Carolina. The last time there were a large amount of tornadoes was in 1985 with a count of 40 something. Just so you understand how rare they are here, there are no tornado sirens because they feel there isn't a need. The only reason we knew one hit here in Jacksonville was because a friend of mine called us and told us that it hit where she lived, which is less than a couple minutes away. That day the power was turned off early and we went most of the night without it. It was pitch black here. We are talking you walk outside and you couldn't see the houses across the street. The aftermath was something I have never seen before and I come from the Midwest down in tornado valley. Here are some pictures of the destruction.

Life, its been quite the journey. As much as I've wanted to get back at this again, I have also been avoiding it. There has just been so much that has happened from my time in North Carolina until now. This is somewhat of a recap I suppose. I left NC with a lot of unwanted baggage. I say this in the most metaphorical way possible.
As most of you all know. I was married to a marine and we lived out in Camp Lejeune. It was a pretty awesome stay as far as the friends and opportunities I had.  Unfortunately it was short lived due to my ex-husband not being a very nice person and to some of the PTSD he suffered from that went untreated. Basically the relationship was toxic and abusive. So much so that I lost a lot of who I was in always being on the defensive and sticking up for myself. I'm not saying that is was all his fault. Just as in any relationship, both parties are responsible for nurturing or poisoning. So here I am almost 5 years later living my life and loving it.

Love this! written by Tanya Amidei

Public Declaration; I NO longer believe in falling/being in love: As I was walking to work this morning I was convicted and reproved for ignorantly believing that I could "fall in love". Love is NOT something you fall into; this pulsing truth wouldn't silence. Now, you can imagine how I felt as the conviction in my heart arose; slightly defensive because certainly I've been defining love properly, right? So, I decided that it was my responsibility to pierce into the Word of my Father, and search to see if this concept of "falling in love" or "being in love" is something that I should indeed attach my life to. Now, it was to my surprise that this concept of emotional intoxication that motivates the lips to part and the tongue to say "I'm in love" is NOWHERE to be found! In fact, as I dug into research I found that this concept; the one I've been guilty of co-signing my name to, is nothing more than lust. Lust is built on what the …
