2020…hmmm. How does one describe it? Would you say that it is the year that wasn’t, or the year that was too much? As we near the end of 2020; a year in which we all had high hopes, one… Read moreThe Year That Wasn’t…Or The Year That Was Too Much
The last blog I wrote was almost a year ago. Much has swirled around me since. I made the decision not to write during the year. I could’ve written about people who live their lives in a sequence of lies…. Read moreKnowledge and Wisdom
I recently posted a “WooHoo!” comment to a friend’s Facebook post of having had a prayer answered. It’s exciting to celebrate answered prayers, even if I wasn’t privy to the request. In praising God for answering the prayer, I began… Read moreAnswered Prayers
I’ve discovered that the majority of us date backwards. Society teaches us that we should date in order to get to know someone. I’ve learned that teaching to be the opposite of how it should be done. We should… Read moreBackwards Dating
Faith: The belief in something when no evidence supports it (Heb 11:1). Hmm…soak that in for a sec. Faith is not actively displaying patterns of behavior that support your belief. That’s being faithful. Faith is not exercised for the purpose… Read moreThe Faith of God’s Child
I suppose that this blog could be viewed as a “Public Service Announcement”. I recently had an eye-opening experience that cause me to think of something that had escaped my previous awareness. Someone, with whom I am very close, had… Read moreGo Old School
A self-proclaimed “story teller” friend of mine recently announced his relationship commitment to a lovely lady. This young man’s command of words often awes me. This time, he floored me. He refers to himself, not as this woman’s “boyfriend,”… Read moreBeing Someone’s “Faithful”
My crash course of life lessons began around Thanksgiving in 2016. By January 2018, I realized that I had learned more this one year than I have in all of my 54 years combined. I learned things that I didn’t… Read moreA Lifetime Of Lessons
Three weeks ago, the topic of this blog presented itself to me; triggered by a Facebook post of a personal friend. Some time ago, she had lost her marriage and couldn’t imagine anyone wanting her along with two young children…. Read moreJoy In Loss
Even prior to my living a God-filled life, people have found me easy to talk to. It’s not unusual that shortly upon meeting me, many feel comfortable enough to share with me things that they wouldn’t openly admit to anyone…. Read moreWho Helps The Men?
I’ve delayed writing this blog because of it being personal. Yet, every personal story is a testimony of faith. It’s by sharing these life events that others may see God, and how He encourages us; carrying us during times… Read moreManna From Heaven
My blogs are of lessons I’ve learned. The most difficult, of my entire life, has been the crash course in self-lying, forgiveness, love, hurt, and prayer focus. This has been a progression of lessons. Until I properly understood one,… Read morePray For Them First
For months, I’ve had a heart burden that I’ve prayed over. Every day, I’ve shed tears before handing it over to God. But was I really handing it over? Or was I still trying to control the outcome? I began to wonder… Read moreWho Do I Think I Am?
I had a conversation with someone close to me who believes that she’s losing faith. “Where’s God? He’s not here. I don’t believe He’s with me.” Her statements hit home for me because I’ve been praying for something that I’m… Read moreWhere’s God?
Those reading my most recent blogs will know that God has been teaching me things that I always thought I already knew and understood. It turns out that I didn’t know anything. I’ve learned, in the last few months, about… Read moreMake Love Your Emotion
For a person to be “whole,” we must search out the things within us that hold us back. Unless we’re balanced (whole) we can’t possibly have anything substantial to offer anyone in our lives. And we can absolutely destroy… Read moreNo Apology Required
In 2016, I had accomplished many things and learned much. The biggest, and most difficult, lessons I learned had come during the last two weeks of the year. On December 29, 2016, I learned the hardest lesson of all. I… Read moreBig Fat Liar
CHRISTIANS BEWARE! The world around us has become desensitized to the words and symbols of love and affection. People in our online, social media, and cellphone culture have taken and symbols (and others of the sort), and pasted them onto… Read moreDesensitized to Love
With the holiday shopping season upon us, I’m sad to say that I expect to see more of them; The Disengaged. In the last two weeks I noticed as I suffered the *unfortunance of stopping at various stores for groceries… Read moreThe Disengaged
Showing others in our life that they are valued and appreciated has come to my attention as of late. I’ve been blessed to know some married couples that absolutely adore one another after being together for many years. It’s not… Read moreThe Value of Your Other Half
I heard on the radio yesterday that out of the 76% of people who believe in love at first sight, 48% of men believe in it and only 28% of women. Men say they “fall in love” at first sight… Read moreInsight On First Sight
I haven’t blogged in a while. There is so much in this world that others are talking/blogging about (police shootings, politics, etc.) that I don’t believe anyone needs to hear my take on those issues. I’d rather talk about things… Read moreMirror Mirror
All over the world there are gods for this and gods for that. Each god has a particular name and, supposedly, a purpose. There are hundreds of them from Abellio, the Celtic god of the apple tree, to Zherneboh whose… Read moreLittle “g” – Big “G”
Thanks to God, I have successfully completed a job search. I didn’t go through this process without learning some things along the way. In talking with others who are also on the hunt for a new career path, it occurred… Read moreThe Job Search Mindset
On March 10, 2016, I awoke with the same headache that I had taken aspirin for the night before. I took Tylenol but the pain in my head progressed throughout the day. Excedrin Migraine failed to ease the discomfort. … Read moreWhere’s Your Head At?
A couple of, five-foot nothing, friends and I were talking the other day. We each have a man in our lives that is significantly taller than we are. We laughed at the fact that he hardly notices that the refrigerator… Read moreThe Long and Short Perspective
There are times when we must do things that cause every bell and whistle of our minds to go off; our stomachs to do flip-flops of apprehension. As long as it isn’t something that would cause physical harm, we must… Read moreFaith Walk Lessons
Mostly I am alone in my vehicle. While driving last evening, I was placed in a situation where I had to apply my brakes with more force than usual. It’s my natural reaction to restrain the contents of my passenger… Read moreProtecting the Shotgun Rider
There are five crowns awarded to believers in Heaven. Believers in Heaven will have the honor of casting their crowns at the feet of Jesus as he sits on his heavenly throne. The crowns are: (1) The Crown of Righteousness… Read moreWhat’s On Your Bucket List?
