In Her Father’s House

There was a beautiful young woman sitting in front of a mirror observing herself. The mirror was framed with gold. As she looked at her reflection in the mirror she smiled, her lips were soft and pink. She brushed her long, bright, and dark hair. Her soul grew with joy at each stroke and her dark hair shimmered; its light was bright like the sun. She wore a spotless white dress. It was so long it hid her bear feet. A gentle voice called her name. It came from the garden right outside her bedroom window, “Grace, Grace.” Grace ran to the window and out there, she saw a fruitful garden […]

His Children

One thing I am convinced of is that a man worthy of being called a king is a man who answers to the call of God upon his life by speaking against injustice; a man who speaks up for those who are being crushed. Proverb 31:8 “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed.” This proverb was written by King Lemuel; it was a teaching of his mother. The passages that precede this one list the attributes of an honorable king. An honorable king is one who does not give himself to women that take away his strength; he does not indulge in […]

Chamomille and Passion Flower

She curled up in the bathtub hugging her legs with both of her arms. As she stared at the draining water her thoughts overcome her heart. The warm water fell on her like soft rain, it was refreshing to her soul. She felt the water caress her beautiful dark hair as it hydrated her pores one-by-one. She reached for the hair solution, very gently squishing some onto her hand she rubbed her hands together spreading the soft solution. She placed her hands up near her nose, she inhaled. Mmm, the scent reached her innermost thoughts. As she caressed the solution on her hair and then hugged her legs again, she thought […]

Why Do People Cheat?

People cheat because they have no identity. They do not know who they are, therefore, do not know what they need or want. They do not know their inmost self. They think they know themselves on the surface, but even this knowledge is scarce. Photograph by: Ana Barajas A grand percentage of people seek a person who is attractive, successful, and someone they can have great sex with. But, what happens when that person does not satisfy them emotionally? They cheat. Emotional satisfaction cannot be found in a person. It can only be found in God. We where made in the image of God, which means we are eternal. God […]

When a Woman Loves a Man

I wept that night sour tears. The tormented oceans within my being drowned me. I could not breath. A second lasted a lifetime and my soul was consumed in flames. I looked within myself and then returned to the little artistic bedroom where the presence of God lingered. I cursed God and immediately repented. I clinked onto his feet once more weeping on my knees. I was the daughter of a sovereign God; one who remained faithful despite of her own desires. He stood there, watching me. He understood the pain. He was patient with my anger. He embraced it by hugging me. I wept myself to sleep on cold, wooden […]

Because for alot of Women it is Enough

Women have turned men into savages—luring beasts after fragile, broken women and most aren’t even aware of this. Why do most men think it’s enough to call women “beautiful” and “sexy”, or “smart” and “gorgeous”, and automatically they will open a door to them? Because for a lot of women it is enough! Photograph by: Ana Barajas A lot of women have lowered their standers far too low that it is enough for a man to call her “sweet heart”. At the sound of these words most women are ready to take off their clothes—these are the most promiscuous. At the very least, some women are ready to kiss that […]
