Decisions, Decisions…

Life is full of decisions – from choosing what to wear to changing professions.  Daily we are required to decide which direction to take and what choice to make.  Not all decisions are life-altering, but several ARE! Take for instance, someone lies to you.  Do you call them up and ball them out?  Do you […]

Honor

Ever since the Veteran’s Day celebration, I’ve really been thinking about honor.  What it means.  And how to actually DO it. Clearly the first question is easily answered.  In fact, Webster’s Dictionary defines honor as high regard or respect (noun) and adherence to principles considered right (verb). As always, it gets a little tricky when […]

Honor to Our Soldiers

Thank you!! My Soldier  He’s my soldier, true and tried. For our freedom he would have […]

The Heart

It’s amazing what breaks my heart these days. I used to be crushed by someone not liking me or a sad Hallmark commercial. A few years and a little bit of maturity has grown my spirit to look outside of myself.  Of course, I’m still very selfish (I think I’ve made this clear in past posts), but God has […]

The Sky Is Falling!

We are on the home stretch!  Today is Election Day, so that means we won’t have to watch those annoying commercials anymore.  Yippee! But guess what?  That means there will be a winner and a loser.  AND someone (probably lots of someones) will think that the sky is falling depending on which side they happen […]

My sister, Heather, recently shared this question with me […]
