“The what-ifs are the worst and they come without permission. They come without warning. Like all terrible things with no mission but to distract, the what-ifs always come. They come and suck the life out of a person, leaving them drained of happiness, courage and grit. I was contending against the possibilities of things taking a turn for the worse. I was fighting against moments that did not happen, against that which was still unknown. “©Simone Holloway, 2020.

“I remember thinking that to desire thoughtfulness and intentionality in my love relationships was to desire too much. For the longest, I was in love-relationships that did the bare minimum. They did not exude any type of effort and was not willing to go the extra mile, yet they professed with confidence that they loved me. That my dears is not love.

“I have decided that I am in this thing with the Lord forever. I’ve come to the place where I love things and people but I don’t love anything or anymore than the Lord. I love God more than my career. I love God more than the boy who has my heart. I love God more than my friends. I love God more than my family.

I don’t worship people and things, for the Lord alone is worthy of all my love, trust, and worship. “©Simone Holloway, 2020.
