Face It


We all live it.

Some seemingly soar through,with the stars aligned perfectly, giving us the impression that everything is is shirt no shoes no problems

Others crawl walk through the time that we have been given to roam this Earth.  
Sometimes you can actually see their journey by just looking at them......


Although we are told "never judge a book by its cover", being the observer that I am, I believe that you can tell a lot about someone just by looking at them. More specifically, their face.

However, there are some really good actors, walking around with their plastic faces, playing "pretend" in a world that begs for you to be "real", be "raw", BE YOURSELF.....until......the world that seemingly shuns you for being fake, curses you when you reveal yourself-your TRUE self to them.

You aren't what they were expecting.

They have too much to worry with already, they can't talk about your problems too.  They have an image to uphold, what if someone thinks they are like you? The REAL you.  Or.....what if you find out who they really are?  Their mask comes off unexpectedly around drops to the floor, leaving them unsure and nervous about their next step.

Being a pastor's daughter believe nothing that you hear of us  it is sometimes difficult to be myself. What will the religious people think of me? How will it affect my father? When you are directly involved in a pastor's family, you are in a glass house-like it or not.  I don't understand it, but people think that we have superhuman powers to be flawless, carry BIG Bibles, and to wear a smile on our face.  ALWAYS.

I am about to reveal a TOP SECRET...........


I'm not perfect.

i know, i know-it's a lot to take in.  I am married, have two beautiful daughters, a lot of good things and people in my life AND I'm a pastor's daughter Christian. Problems? Me? Issues? Moi??


And, let me let me just step out on a limb here, but I'm guessing that you aren't perfect either.  Actually, I know you aren't. You have good days and bad days.  You mess up--sometimes more than once.  You get your feelings hurt.  Some things make you happy. Some things just down right piss you off.

The good news is that you aren't alone.  You don't have to pretend with me. (In fact, I would rather you not) I like to think of myself as a real person.  A girl that calls it like I see it. A girl that will be there for you with open arms when you've lost someone special or have just been let down.  I'm the chick that will laugh until I pee my pants with you (especially if someone falls) and I'm also the girl that will say & feel things that I shouldn't.

Am i bragging? of course not.....My goal is to live my life as close to the life of the Proverbs 31 woman.  That is a daily battle.  I'm trying.

But my oh my.......the stories.....

You just wait...........
