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. “

I Refuse To Remember

Goodbye.

“There’s no way that I have an idol in my life.  No way.  I mean, I love God, right?  Yes, we love God but there are things in our lives that we love more.  That, ladies and gents is idolatry, the loving of something/someone more than the Father. “©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

This Is Love.

“The older I become, I realize that life is not about things and places but rather about our love relationships with people.  The way we love a soul lasts for an eternity, whereas position, prestige and the riches of this world will only last a lifetime.”©Simone Holloway, 2018
