I’m Guilty

  If I sat down and listed all the things I do wrong, I probably wouldn’t finish until the day I died. I guess I’m a pretty critical, judgmental person. There.  I’ve said it.  I am;  I’m judgmental and overly critical. A lot. The thing […]

Monday Mondays on Tuesday 2.24.15

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything.  You’d think that because of all the crazy winter weather we’ve experienced lately, preventing us from getting out of the house, I’d have more time to write.  WRONG!  Instead, we’ve been dealing with sickness, burst pipes […]

Sons of David

Sons of David

I had a difficult and highly disappointing conversation with one of my sons the other day.  After ending the discussion, I was just…. wrecked. I try to remain optimistic most of the time, but some times are just harder than others, aren’t they?  I’m only human with limited […]

Apples to Oranges to Bananas to Nuts – Comparison will Rot us All!

Apples to Oranges to Bananas to Nuts – Comparison will Rot us All!

When the chips are down, I’m a glass-half-full kind of person.  Most of the time, I’m optimistic.  Actually, I choose to be optimistic.  Most of that is due to the fact that I believe Romans 8:28: And we know that for those who love God […]

Monday Morsels 8.4.14

Today is my husband’s birthday!  I robbed the cradle because he’s younger than me  – 3 years – which felt like a huge difference 27 years ago; today, not so much.  I’m spending the day with him in Atlanta, where’s he’s working this week, and […]

Time Flies All Day Every Day

Time Flies All Day Every Day

  So… my son is gone.  Has been gone for a couple weeks now, actually.  This was a portion of his growing up and moving out to begin his own life apart from all he has ever known. And good for him.  That’s what we raised him […]

Courage: Stepping off into (Seeming) Uncertainty

Courage: Stepping off into (Seeming) Uncertainty

See this picture?  And the small blackish-red dot about 1/3 of the way on the right?  That’s me.  Ziplining about 300′ above the forest floor, and 1900′ from one end of the gorge to the other.  It took more than a couple deep breaths, a […]

Letter to my Teenage Self

Letter to my Teenage Self

Dear Me, Really, the years have been happy ones. Look forward to that. And try to always look on the bright side, because that is the very thing that gets you through the bad times. You did a pretty good job of that anyway, but […]

In the Blink of an Eye

In the Blink of an Eye

With age, you start thinking. Becoming more introspective, I suppose. You have a life’s worth of experience and events, good and bad. Much more so than in your teens or twenties, you start looking over the decisions and the choices you’ve made, and wondering what […]
