Our Sweet Little Ones

It is with a heavy heart that I’ve put together my blog today because a dear friend’s child has passed away from cancer.  I couldn’t come up with any words, so I’m using a poem I wrote for another friend who’s sweet boy died a few years ago.  I ask that all of you hug […]

Underdogs

As many of you know, I have a continuing love affair with football.  So, you can imagine how happy I am these days with college and NFL playing almost every day of the week.  I am very thankful for the new programming that spreads the games throughout the week.  TOUCHDOWN! However, football happens to be […]

Sacrifice

Sacrifice is like a four-letter, dirty word. When people use the word, sacrifice, others tend to look at them like they have lost their mind and clearly, would rather them not say the word…ever. It reminds me of another word that gets a bad rap – obedience – because it invokes the same kind of […]

Quality Shoes…uh, Living!

I love shoes.  I love ALL kinds of shoes.  They can be strappy, sexy, open-toed, suede, leather, cheap, expensive, platform, flat, tennis shoes, boots, sandals, slip on, lace up or buckled…it makes no difference to me. Typically, I buy brown or black shoes, but I would take just about any color in the rainbow.  In […]

New Beginnings

Remembering September 11th

If you hadn’t already figured it out, September 11th is tomorrow.  It’s been 12 years since the tragic events and in some ways it feels like forever and in others, it feels like just yesterday. I don’t think any one of us made it through that day unaffected. The heinous actions of a few catapulted […]

Naked

Surprised by the title?  Me, too. As I looked at the blog calendar for today’s post, I realized that I had written “Naked” as the topic. Okay, so anyone who knows me well, KNOWS that my modesty is lacking and my humor is on the level of a sixth grader. Sigh. You can only imagine […]

The Prayer Problem

Lately, my prayer life has stunk it up to kingdom come.  For some reason, I have been going through the motions of reading scriptures and devotionals, but I’ve barely spoken a word to God in what seems like forever. Sure, I’ve said mealtime and bedtime prayers with my boys, but my personal time with God […]
