Have you ever loved so hard that you lost "you" in the relationship? How about once you figured out you were in a self-imposed prison but were unable to figure out how to get free? Well, this sums up what addiction looks like. The crazy thing is that misguided love or perception of what love should be, for people we try to help with their issues, problems, and life challenges can quickly become an addiction of your own.
It's at moments like these that we have to take a close look at ourselves and not "pass the buck" when hit with the ugly circumstance of the life that manifests from the choices we've made.
Walk with me on this journey of love, abandonment, heartbreak, resentment, shame, courage, and freedom. Though you may not be in the shoes I have had to adorn; I know the road I traveled is familiar to us all…" Married 2 an Addiction"
A compilation of inspirational writings. As you read the heart of William Bernard Jones, you will feel his pain, sorrow, joy, triumph, vision, and, most of all, his concluding victory.
If you struggle with addictions of any form, his words will inspire you not to give up, love hard, and live each day as if it was your last. Even in our darkest moments, God shows His faithfulness and never gives up on us.
This book was assembled by his wife, Marietta, to fulfill his wishes to leave a mark in the earth.
Each day we are blessed to see is an opportunity to recognize the hand of God. There are always glimpses of hope, "what we like to call beauty marks," that we can see clearly when we stop to recognize the hand of God even in the ugliest moments in our lives.
This journal allows us to have a conscientious/intentional interruption of the thoughts that keep us from focusing on why we should be thankful! As you go through your day, find SOMETHING that reminds you that you are loved and blessed. Please don't allow your day to dictate what it will be. Speak to your day and reminder yourself that there is ALWAYS a reason to be 4Ever Thankful!
From December 31, 2018, to December 31, 2019, I created a monthly blog including a photo/journal of me embracing my 50th birthday.
I discussed openly the trials of being a woman of God and African American to help others learn how to embrace the flaws and eliminate the insecurities life tries to use to keep us from walking in our destiny.
This book tackles and explores in-depth many rough spots we've all experienced on this journey called life, but discovered that they were actually "beauty marks" we can look back on as a declaration of victory.
