Steadfast Love

“I thought I trusted God.  I did.  I thought I understood His love for me, this notion that because He loves me He wouldn’t leave me without.  Yet, my heart became increasingly full of fear and anxiety wrapped me in a bear hug as to say “Welcome Home!” Even in the midst of my perceived weakness, He never changed.  He loved me with a steadfast love.” ©Simone Holloway, 2018

Memories

“I still cannot forget about you. /Trust me, I tried. /I stood in the mirror and lied, /said that I didn’t love you anymore. “©Simone Holloway, 2018

There’s More

“And just when, just when you feel like there is nothing left to give, that well springs up again spouting forth something new and something good.” ©Simone Holloway, 2018

Jack of All Trades

For a long time in my life, I thought I had to live within separate personalities: the intellectual and the creative.  It was as if I could not reconcile between my known trait of intelligence and all of my hidden creative gifts. ©Simone Holloway, 2018

Seasons Change

“People are fallible, they will fail us.  They will disappoint us, we cannot expect people to rock with us forever.  Some might say this is a very negative concept, or one shared by a pessimist- but I refuse to engage in this false hope that those around me are incapable of hurting me, in fact it is the people that are closest to you that hurt you the most.” ©Simone Holloway, 2017
