New Guest Blog in Legal & Lawful

You know, I had a moment of thankfulness today that was so affirming of the journey that God has placed before me…. The journey that I finally decided to take with this “The Cherry Vine” thing.  He continues to whisper to me in a soft voice, “I got you”, and I receive His words and His purpose for my life.

When I was “in my feelings” about Father’s Day, missing my dad, and didn’t feel in my spirit to express my thoughts, I retreated to quietness and solitude. A couple of people (you know who you are) somewhat convicted me about not blogging. I felt strongly that everything about this blog is a result of God’s spirit moving within me, therefore if it doesn’t “hit me”, so-to-speak, I don’t write. Feeling somewhat convicted, as I am so grateful for the delivery of this forum, I said to myself, “Wow…you gotta write something.”  Wasn’t long after that thought, that two people, who I had asked to guest blog, reached out and was ready!!! To God be the glory!!! Even in my lack, God stepped in!!!

So, as many of you thoroughly enjoyed and was blessed by my niece, Jaquita Cherry Richardson’s “Happiness Is Homemade-Marriage Survival Kit” and Carolyn “Cookey” Johnson’s powerful testimony, “Effectual Calling..Even Me”, blogged earlier this week, you will also be amazed and blessed by my niece, VB Moody’s guest blog on domestic violence. It will give you chills, as you absorb the power of her words, the astounding statistics, the urgency for change and the profound perspective from the seat of a district court judge.

Sit back and enjoy this piece, “DV” Generation, by The Cherry Vine’s third guest blogger. Share it with family and friends. Remember God’s assignment for this forum is: Energizing, Educating and Empowering the “fruit” of The Vine…Through Expression!

Navigate on the site to Branches of the Vine, Cherry Seeds (of Power), then choose Legal & Lawful.

Peace & Blessings,

    Truth be told…domestic violence and abuse can happen to ANYONE, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. This is especially true when the abuse is PSYCHOLOGICAL, rather than PHYSICAL!! Noticing and acknowledging the signs of an abusive relationship is the first step to ENDING IT!! NO ONE should live in FEAR of the PERSON they LOVE!! *NOTE TO SELF: When we recognize ourselves or someone we know in a domestic violence situation we need to reach out for HELP….THERE IS HELP AVAILABLE!!

    Sad and true, it is time to Stop the violence! What an amazing heartfelt share! Thank you for edifying a hurting people. It is a difficult subject and many victims as well as abusers are not able to discuss it. Your story and the statistics give hope to the meek. God bless you and keep you in His loving care.
