About Me

My photo
Anacortes, Washington, United States
This is my testimony - my testimony of faith and lack thereof; of the rising and falling of hopes and dreams; of beliefs and disbelief's; of tremendous heartache and human folly; of reaching out and stepping out when all I want at times is to is pull back and step away. At the age of 30 I was diagnosed with a very rare neurological condition called Post-traumatic Syringomyelia (PTS). Please visit my post on PTS. One of my goals is to increase awareness of this terminal condition. Broken to Grace is not yet released. Follow this blog to receive an email when the final release date is announced. God bless, Ronda

'If you can't be with the one you love, love the one your with.' I respectfully disagree...

You can keep company with a lovely person and feel lonely; you can reside in paradise and live in turmoil. 
Don't fain love towards another because you can't be with the one you do love; that's narcissism from which stems severe heartache. 
Don't go to paradise expecting your mind, heart and soul will follow; that's ignorance in which the bliss will soon subside. 
Everything comes from where you are within. Know where you stand and hold your head up when you fall.
