Keep Pedaling, You Can’t Adjust the Level.

Well, today God showed me with His great sense of humor that I cannot go back to a lower level once I'd decided on my direction. You see I was on an exercise bike and though I've worked out regularly, I've been eating everything sweet I can get my hands on the last two weeks so... Continue Reading →

Do I have the Grace to Begin Again?

Randomness...a candid conversation with me and My Heavenly Father...5 minutes of what it is...you've been warned...unedited   Do I have the grace to begin again? It's a question I ponder every now and then? In between the meantime and his "mean" times? Maybe to consider him gruff would be a bit too much. I know... Continue Reading →

The Satisfaction of Suffering

Yes Lovely Ladies, suffering is necessary. It is part of the refinement process. Some refinement takes longer than others dependent upon how tough the material being polished is before the process began.  Trials and disappointment have a tendency to give us thick skin...we get tough when we're meant to be delicate.  That is by no...

NOT Again! Black Lives Still Matter

Hmmm...now I intentionally removed myself from social media for a while to refresh and to focus on my books and other business ventures...yet, in the last few days I've allowed myself to  indulge for maybe 30 minutes a day or so to play catch up. I wish I could say that it were not more... Continue Reading →

Reconstructed for Purpose

I'm sure I'd heard of the term "reconstruction" before, but when the gentlemen I spoke with the other day mentioned it referring to several home remodeling projects in the area, I understood things intimately. I began writing a post some time ago about being under construction. However, if I'm honest, it was completely cliche and I... Continue Reading →

Finally Thawed

For the last month or more, my daughter has been somewhat "re-obsessed" with Frozen's Soundtrack . I admit I used to like the song myself, but only when I heard Demi Lovato sing it. Yesterday morning on the way to church she decided to belt out the lyrics of which I'd heard enough of...or so... Continue Reading →

An Ear to Listen

I had no reservations about revealing my past before that moment in class yesterday.  Perhaps it was hearing words I'd never written before...I'd never even thought of before sent me to a place I hadn't visited either. I remembered. I revealed my disconnection with self...why I was drawn to being "needed" by others...why it was... Continue Reading →

It was Never Rejection

I cried in class today. I hadn't planned to do so. I didn't even cry when writing the piece I was required to read aloud. The assignment was to tell our story.  As a writer I almost did the paper before even reading the assigned chapters because I thought it would be that easy. I mean... Continue Reading →

Fix that Door and Move On!

Laughter is my best medicine. I must find the funny in everything to function and no, I'm not mental! So...basically, I planned to go to bowling the other day...was dressed and for a change would have actually been on time (the Lord is yet working on me in this area) Anyway...I go to open the door to leave and there...

Do Black Lives Really Matter?

I heard about another shooting and I was again hesitant to look up the details.   I had good reason, but how could I avoid it. Alton Sterling's picture was plastered everywhere. The video capturing his murder quickly going viral...the outrage escalating...the pain eminating through a people...silently and aloud: Do Black lives really matter? Alas,... Continue Reading →
