Thankful Sunday

Today let us take the time to thank God for getting us through the past week. Sadly many did not make it. Gun violence continue to claim the lives of innocent people. We can only pray that a change will come and the rights of every citizen will be addressed. As we welcome another week we pray God will protect us and see us through. Happy Sunday!

Awareness is Vital in the Fight Against Domestic Violence

The statistics regarding domestic violence globally is alarming. Women die every day at the hands of intimate partners. Prevention is the single most important way to avoid becoming a victim. You might ask what is the strategy for prevention, and the answer to that is awareness. Learn to recognize the signs that a partner or a potential partner may be an abuser. Most women never believe a partner will go too far until it happens. Few recognize an abusive relationship it for what it is…a matter of life and death situation. Do not ignore threats. Do not ignore abusive language. Do not ignore acts of violence such as hitting, shoving and kicking. Do not fall for apologies and believe when he tells you it won’t happen again. The truth is that not only will it continue but it could get worse. Be aware, know the signs. Leave before it’s too late.

Escape

I saw the line, I saw the hook,                            Image result for image of the sea
But somehow I didn’t think
I’d ever fall for it.
To me it seemed like just a game,
I could always swim away.

But somehow I got too close,
And got caught upon the hook,
I struggled to get away from it,
But the more I tried
The deeper the hook did seem
To dig into my flesh.

The line was long and the more I swam,
into deeper waters I did get,
But still there was no escape,
From the hook that had slipped into my flesh.
It’s slowly getting darker now,
The sun has lost its shine,
I hope the hand that holds the line,
Will be kind enough to me,
To draw in the line, remove the hook
And somehow set me free.

Sometimes people get into situations they can handle only to find out that they are in way too deep and there is no escape.
