JANUARY 24, 2021: “Queen Of The Mountain!” …

HERE’S THE CALL TO MY FELLOW LIONS:

May the power and grace of your strong and determined heart continue to be with you always! It’s really kinda hard standing all alone in the crowd. Oh wait, NO IT’S NOT! Perhaps one of my crowning achievements is knowing that I’m different and embracing it!

Now, go on and get back up to the top of that mountain where you belong, ALONE BUT NOT LONELY IF YOU MUST! Let your mane flow in the breeze, keep your claws ever sharpened and out, and always be ready to swat away all those annoying fucking sheep if they try to slow your roll. Look down at your kingdom, breathe it in, then breathe it out, and laugh to yourself quietly as all the flies land on your SHIT and actually think it tastes good!

RAWWR!

LIONS

Today we live. Today we breathe. Today we know that we are strong when we are weak. Today we trust. We overcome. Take every chain that kept us slaves and throw em’ off. We’re not waiting for permission. We defy our inhibition like our middle name is “fearless”. Unafraid. If we’re gonna fly, we fly like eagles – arms out wide! If we’re gonna fear, we fear no evil. We will rise by Your power we will go. By Your spirit we are bold! If we’re gonna stand, we stand as giants. If we’re gonna walk, we walk as lions. WE WALK AS LIONS! Today is ours, it’s always been. Before we face the fight, we know Who’s gonna win! We live by faith and not by sight. We don’t want safe and quiet. We don’t wanna run and hide. This is not an intermission. It’s our time, not gonna miss it. You’ve already called us fearless. Unafraid. Everywhere we go, the battle has been won. We know You’ve gone before us. So, we’re taking hold of faith with every step we take. We know we’ll rise victorious! {Skillet}

DECEMBER 20, 2020: “Alone. Not lonely.” …

I recently stumbled upon this seemingly poignant post on Instagram by some “unknown poet”: “The person you needed the most will teach you to need nobody.” Hmm. I gotta tell ya, folks, I really do tend to agree with this. Except … I am seriously thinking that the person I needed the most all these years was me. So, now that I’ve finally shown up, no, I sure don’t “need nobody” but me. Wait! I take that back. I need GOD and I need me.

From this point going forward, anyone I choose to allow into my atmosphere will be there only because I want them in it, not because I “need” them in it. (Yes, there is a difference.) I am my safest fortress. I am my own best friend. I am my freedom. I am my home.

No, I’m really not lonely … I just very much alone right now and in the process of taking this thing to a whole new other level. Truth being told, not too many people can even go there with me anyway. I am Catherine Marie Williamson and am truly God’s favorite daughter. “All of this” is not for the faint of heart, my friends, and this queen isn’t playing small anymore.

YOU’RE NOT ALONE TONIGHT

We all drink to forget – some of us more than most. When reality gets too real and the fires of hell to close. But I’m here to let you know that that you can make it through, if you believe that someone is watchin’ over you. Call it an angel. Call it a muse. Call it karma that you’ve got comin’ to you. What’s the difference? What’s in a name? What matters most is never ever losin’ faith. ‘Cause it’s gonna be alright … you’re not alone tonight. We all have our days when nothing goes as planned. Not a soul in the world seems to understand. And for someone to talk to, you’d give anything. Well go on and cry out loud – ’cause someone’s listenin’. Call it an angel. Call it a muse. Call it karma that you’ve got comin’ to you. What’s the difference? What’s in a name? What matters most is never ever losin’ faith. ‘Cause it’s gonna be alright … you’re not alone tonight. {Keith Urban}
