There’s A Song for That…

“When was the last time you allowed yourself to just be in the moment?  To be present with yourself, family and favorite playlist?  When was the last time you welcomed joy? “©Simone Holloway, 2020

The Need for Community

“God never intended for you to do life alone. You were created to have a tribe, a group of people who will love you for you.” ©️Simone Holloway, 2019

Soaked with Mercy.

” This tells me that we cannot fully know something that we haven’t embraced.  For example, how can you know (fully know) your friend or loved one if you haven’t fully embraced that person (strengths, weaknesses and other idiosyncrasies)?  We do not know what we do not embrace.  So, if we do not embrace people, places, or circumstances- we have no full knowledge of those things.  This is why it’s so important to be friends with people who embrace you fully because that’s the only way they will know you fully and can love you rightly.  We cannot love well what we do not know.”©Simone Holloway, 2019

Holiday Anxiety

” I don’t know about you all, but I feel like we live in a world where we are always asked to supply answers to questions that we simply don’t have the answer to.  For example, “How long will you be single?”; “When are you going to have some kids?”; “Girl, why you ain’t got a boyfriend?; “Girl, when are you getting married?”  In my heart I want to scream, “I DON’T KNOW, DO I LOOK LIKE GOD?”  but on the outside, I smile gracefully and say, “I don’t know.  I’ll let you know when I find out.”  I’m not going to let them know… I’m going to make all my announcements after the fact on social media.  My family will find out about my life choices when the world finds out. Trifling?  Yeah, I know. “

Lessons from Lifetime Lovers

Happy Christmas

For it is my belief, that the day this sweet baby boy came to the world- the world was changed forever. Jesus came to change the world. He came to bring hope and to bring love to the outsiders. He came to bring joy to the depressed, to rescue those who were hanging on by a wing and a prayer. He came for broken people, for those that people gave up on, for those that were deemed to be unlovable.
