With This Ring

IMG-5834

It’s hard for me to describe how much this ring means to me.

When my husband was little he was surrounded by strong, intelligent, crazy (his words, not mine) women who raised him up to be the amazing, gentle, loving man that he is today. But there was one man who was present & active in his life, his PawPaw.

Once upon a time his PawPaw made a silver ring with this rope design on it. I don’t know the full story, but I do know this; when I met Ronnie it was the only piece of jewelry he wore. Also, his mom & sister both have a copy of this ring in gold. I’ve always loved that ring. I’ve admired & cherished the people who wear this ring. It’s special, meaningful & unique…just like the folks who don it.

Y’all!!! This year for our TEN YEAR wedding anniversary he had this ring made for me! WOW!!! It’s the most simple way to say that I am his person!

If you don’t know about the MIRACLE that God has performed in our marriage then let me tell you, there was a time that all hope was lost. Our marriage was all but legally over. Ronnie had every right to divorce me without anyone blinking an eye, as a matter of fact, most people probably would’ve suggested that he divorce me. BUT GOD SAID NO!!! God said “wait.” God said “this marriage, like every marriage, is worth renewal, worth redemption, worth the struggle & heartache.”

It’s not always easy, but it’s always GOOD! We make each other laugh every single day, we are the perfect compliment to the others quirks, we are stronger/better together! Y’all, we weren’t supposed to make it, our marriage was dead…BUT GOD!!!!

I believe for you, I believe for your marriage, I believe in resurrection, redemption & new life! I don’t believe in you, but I believe that God can work through you!! Just hold on! Love is good, God is better! I’m in deep prayer today for marriages that feel dead. I’m praying for breath of life & healing. I am praying for you!!!

The Video in My PM’s

times up!

Dear Dude that sent me an unsolicited VIDEO (so much worse than a picture) via FB Messenger at 2am this morning,

Maybe you are unaware of Texas Penal (pun necessary, unintended, but I still giggled) Code 21:15, criminalizing invasive visual recordings? This means that short, little video you sent me last night is a criminal offense. Mind you, it is only a Class C misdemeanor, which is basically a ticket, but it’s still a criminal act.

Just wanted to give you a heads up, I DID file charges & there is officially a case against you. Again, it’s only a ticket, nonetheless, you messed with the wrong lady.

Although we hardly know each other (only accepted your friend request because we’re both members of a certain club in which sick people are trying to get better…well, some of us are anyway) I’ll bet you already knew that I am not the one, which begs the question; if you would send someone as self assured as me a video like this, what other vulnerable, not as far along in their journey female, have you messaged that won’t say anything??? Man, you’ve got some nerve!

And to the cop who asked why I didn’t report it right away & scoffed when I told him what circles we run in, & to the trusted male who said that he doesn’t present a creeper vibe on social media, that there were no indicators on his profile that would lead someone to believe he would send raunchy videos, oh! Or to the guy that said, “I hope you don’t ruin this guys life over a silly, little video.” (GOOD NEWS! It’s only a class C misdemeanor, I’ll bet he’ll be ok!👍🏼) To yous guys, it’s men like you that are perpetuating rape culture in this world. Men like you that don’t think other men look or act like violators. Men like you that hope some other mans life doesn’t get ruined over a mistake like this.

What does a rapist look like & how do they act online? Please, enlighten all of us ignorant lady folk, we’d like to be on the look out. And we’re sorry that a man might have to pay for his crimes against women, maybe we’ll just keep our mouths shut next time. Or maybe I post too many sexy photos (please, take this time to jump on over to my photo line up…sooooooo sexy, what, with my husband & all) it’s probably my fault, I accept that now.

In conclusion, you perverted, creeper, disgusto…stay away from my inbox, stay away from my ladies (all of them,) enjoy your ticket & envision your message being sent to your mom, or sister, or daughter.

Sincerely,
Dumb Little Lady Brain

PS you’re lucky I don’t blast your name all over social media, jerk!! I, unlike you, have some manners & respect for other human beings.
