“Blurred Vision”

Just when you thought you knew what direction you should go in only to have some life choices that blur the vision you once held so clear and dear to your heart. I had the distinct pleasure of being pushed beyond my preset limits while landing on my feet. My reward for making it through the press was letting that dream go and dreaming again.

Today I am sharing some of my story of my “Life without Law” under the title “Blurred Vision.” The complete article is part of a soul searching, thought provoking, mind shifting anthology “Crystal Clear,” that will be released later this year.

Congratulations! Erica A. Thornton, We, are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted into the Thomas Cooley Law School.  This was the first line of the email I received from the admission counsel. When I read those words, I took a deep breath, then released a sigh of relief. As the good news settled in, I began to reflect on the series of events that led up to me receiving the news.  Applying to law school had been one of my goals for quite some time. I allowed it to sit, restless and unfulfilled, in my subconscious. I didn’t fully pursue it with focused effort.  I allowed other things to crowd out the vision I had in heart.  At times I was not clear on which direction my life should take.  I found myself suffering from a lack of clear vision.  My life sometimes made me feel like I was in the movie “The Matrix,” when Morpheus asked Neo to choose between the blue pill or red pill.  The color chosen would determine the course taken. Some many options and choices can often lead to impaired vision.

Moms’ Have Dreams Too!

WOW!! What a difference a few days can make. Two weeks ago everything was seemly fine and then the very next week our nation begin shutting down and closing up to curve worldwide pandemic. Our schools, stores and restaurants are closing and the kids far and near are home. We are under quarantine orders by our federal, state and local government. We are all now officially homeschooling parents.

Fear, pressure and anxiety is running high for most people to say the least. Grocery store shelves have been cleared of essential items, gas prices are extremely low and most people are waiting on the next Presidential address.

Father’s Day Prayer

Father in the name of Jesus I thank you for my dad.  I thank you for all that he is to me and our family. I ask that you continue to bless him and keep him.  I ask that you strengthen him because being a leader is not an easy task.  I ask that you give him wisdom and understanding in the knowledge of You and what you have called him to do.  I ask that you encourage him when he is down. Help him to see and know how valuable he is to all who love him.  I pray that you order his steps, don’t let the hand of the enemy prevail against him, hedge him in and protect him.  I ask that you favor him in his business or employment, allow him to always be paid well for the work he does.  I declare that my father is a Psalm 1 man, a man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful. I pray that he will delight himself in your word and that he will meditate on your Word day and night.  Let him be like a tree planted the rivers of waters. Let him find himself planted in your Word.  You made him and you know him if there is anything in his life that needs to be corrected, I ask that you reveal it to him and help him walk in your way.  Amen!!

When A Parent Dies

I remember it like it was yesterday.  The sun was shining and I was playing in the water sprinkler next door with a childhood friend.  My dad came to the door and called me inside.  I went inside to find out why he called and he said my mother was on the phone.  I went to the phone and began talking to her.  I was short on phone because I was trying to get back outside.  Before we hung up the phone she made what would be her final statement, “remember mama always loves you,” I said ok and ran back outside. It seemed like it wasn’t 5 minutes later that my dad was calling me back into the house to tell me she was gone. My mom had died. Like a vapor just that fast she was gone.  I could get her voice back, I couldn’t grab anything of her, she was gone. Continue Reading
