Red Roses

“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.  Love is thoughtful and intentional.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.

For The Long Haul…

“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 love God more and at any moment if he asks me to sacrifice it all, I am willing to walk away from it all.  I don’t worship people and things, for the Lord alone is worthy of all my love, trust, and worship. “©Simone Holloway, 2020.

I Played Myself.

“As his face filled my mind this morning, I wasn’t filled with regret but rather a sense of gratitude.  I am grateful that I came to the place that I loved myself enough to walk away.  I am grateful that I loved myself enough to speak up, to demand more, to require truth and honesty in my relationships.  I love myself enough to look past the words and check ones’ actions.  Having boundaries, creating a standard is evidence of self-love and I won’t accept the doctrine of anyone who argues otherwise.  Loves,  may you come to the place where you love yourself more than mere company! “©Simone Holloway, 2020.

When Dreams Die…

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  Today is a somber day for many, myself included, as we reflect on life in the aftermath of the passing of Kobe Bryant and his beautiful daughter, Gianna.  The world is in this state of shock and silence.  Loved ones are holding each other a little closer…

There’s A Song for That…

On The Run.

“So I have a confession to make: when I sense that I am falling in love with someone or that someone is falling for me, I run.”

Something Real.

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  Happy Sunday!  I know it’s been a couple of days since my last post.  Your girl has been busy, so I spent the last couple of days present with those I love- resting.
