My parents named me Laurel, after the mountain laurel flower, but I've always gone by Laurie. I feel like I've spent my whole life trying to be what other people would find acceptable, and it hasn't been until recent years that I've thought more about how GOD would like me to be. He wants my heart to be seeking after HIM and not the approval of man. So, this is where I will be working out my thoughts, removing the masks (even my nickname!), being real, and making a FREAK of myself! ha ha Any other Jesus Freaks or just freaks in general or even non-freaky people are welcome to read, discuss, encourage, or be encouraged. Welcome to my brain . . . and my heart. :)

Almost Time to Let Go
When you create something, it's like your baby.
My "baby" is being prepared now to be made public later this year.
For human consumption.
Open to scrutiny and haters and scoffers.
Oh, my heart! My heart is in that baby! My tender heart. What will it withstand?
All the hours, the tears, the laughter, the sighs, the pain, the mingling of past reality and dreams. . .
I kinda want to hold on.
But, just like when a literal baby grows up and it's time to let go, there's excitement to see what he or she will do!
Maybe, just maybe, my "baby" will entertain someone, or even challenge someone to think about things differently. Maybe someone will relate. Maybe someone will change her path. Maybe someone's heart will be broken, in a good way. Maybe someone will smile.
Lord, my "baby" is really Yours. It has been from the start.
Do with it what You will.
