Growing Up  Growing Apart

Growing Up Growing Apart

In my teen years I had an amazing group of friends and we were inseparable. We were all together, all the time. We would visit each other often and when one was in town we would spend every waking second together. We would write letters, visit, call each other, and...

Trust & Obey

Trust & Obey

Boys and girls, I got an Instagram. I realize this isn't exciting to anyone else, but it was to me. By the way, that's not really the point of this blog. Some of you have followed me already, thanks for that by the way, you are the bestest!  Anyway, you may have...

Pink Socks

If you aren't a fan of what I say, you might want to just go ahead and stop reading now. I can almost guarantee many people will hate this post. I'm not talking they'll disagree a bit. I mean beat red face, throwing a shoe, kicking the dog kind of angry. I'm going to...

Joy

Joy

How many of you have ever smiled? I'm going to take a wild guess we all have, at least once or twice. How many have smiled even when you weren't happy? It happens all the time; people don't want to discuss their issues or don't want others to know something is wrong....

Male & Female Created He Them

Male & Female Created He Them

I was listening to some messages online from a church gathering where they had several ministers preaching. I noticed several of the ministers would mention how females were equally important to the men of the church. Just before anyone gets confused -  I agree,...

My Teachers – My Parents

My Teachers – My Parents

I try to avoid certain peoples social media accounts on Mother's Day and Father's Day because they bug me in the worst of ways. "Thank you mom for being both my mom and dad" they say or "thanks dad for stepping up to be both mom and dad". Let's just upset everyone...

Desires of your Heart

Desires of your Heart

Have you ever read Psalm 37; the whole chapter not just verse 4? I bet most of us can quote verse 4 and some can even go on to quote verse 5. Passed that though most have no idea what this chapter is about. I suggest you take the time to read it cause it's really good...

Trials

Trials

Several years ago I moved to a new state. I knew upfront it wouldn't be easy and boy was I right! Oh, the stories I could tell about the things that went wrong and the trials I faced. Before I left I had people tell me that just because I was following God didn't mean...

Grace Grace

Grace Grace

Just wanted to take a minute to share a thought from the other day. While listening to a popular radio station the DJ was speaking of grace. I’ll spare you the majority of what was said and just get to my point. She was saying that we often give grace to others when...

Movies You Wanna See – You Just Don’t Know It Yet

Movies You Wanna See – You Just Don’t Know It Yet

Valentines Day, Hallmark Holiday, Singles Awareness Day  often referred to as S.A.D., Chocolate Holiday, and strange as it may be, Ferris Wheel Day. No, I didn't make the last one up! This day honors the birth of the inventor of the Ferris Wheel, George Washington...

Hope

Hope

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 This morning I was on my Facebook and looked at my existing cover photo of a Christmas ornament that simply said hope. Today that is what I cling to. I have a relative that...

What If

What If

Last evening I sat at my kitchen table and celebrated my upcoming birthday. This morning I woke to an email that a co-worker had passed away. As I sat around a table full of laughter, she sat in a hospital room taking her last breath. At work her projects will go on,...

Christmas Everyday

Christmas Everyday

I know several people that come from medium or large sized families and it seems that there is one thing we all have in common - the disagreements. I don't know that it is possible to get that many people together and have everyone agree. The loudness of the...

Life is Hard, God is Good

Life is Hard, God is Good

We've all had those days that life is just hard. I'm not talking you lost your best friend and grieving kind of day. I'm talking about the days where everything seems to go wrong or you are constantly on the go and you look around and wonder when it is going to end. I...

Girl Idol

Girl Idol

When we think of an idol we have different images depending on the situation. For example, if I'm sitting in Sunday School and the teacher mentions idols my mind is going to go to a golden calf or something similar. Perhaps listening to a sermon I might think of all...

What Do You Know? You’re Single!

What Do You Know? You’re Single!

I was raised in church and for many years I have heard Heaven and Hell preached. Although I'm sure it probably has happened, I've never personally known of someone telling the pastor they can't speak of Heaven or Hell because they haven't experienced it. The Bible...

I shake my head when someone asks questions like why won’t this print and I have to explain they typed in the incorrect number.

In a traditional wedding have you ever wondered why the bride is given away. It’s not because women are weak or a possession. Instead it is because she is treasured.

Love Your Enemy

Love Your Enemy

I had a small meltdown earlier this evening. Maybe meltdown isn’t the best way to describe it. There were no tears, no screaming, and no throwing things. There was attitude though; lots and lots and lots and lots of attitude. I sat for a good 10 minutes and stewed....
