Not Just A Blonde

We are "Not Just" who we seem to be on this Earthly plane, but so much more. We are ALL children of a loving God who is calling us home to Love. This blog is dedicated to those of us on that journey together…

 Don’t be fooled by others tough exteriors… often the most vulnerable and wounded try to protect themselves by covering up their pain with a cloak of false confidence and strength. Sometimes those who appear the strongest are actually the weakest and those that seem the most self-assured are filled with the biggest doubts.  Love …
