Prosperity

Saturday night I fell asleep during one of the most boring movies I have recently seen.  I feel terrible that I couldn’t get into The Book of Eli, but it just wasn’t in the cards for me.  As usual, I received the Cliff Notes version from Lee the next morning and I was disappointed that […]

You Just Never Know

I recently posted a photo on my Facebook GEM page that said, “Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.  Be kind.  Always.” What an amazing truth!!! For some reason, we think that we are the only ones with problems, are misunderstood or have a cross to bear.  Interestingly, we are the […]

Easter Error

If I’m going to screw up…I’m gonna do it BIG!  Of course, this time I did it on Easter Sunday…which makes me feel THAT MUCH WORSE! Am I never going to learn?  Jeepers! So, here’s what happened.   A week ago I was hanging out with several ladies from my neighborhood and chatting about our Easter […]

Guilty as Charged

“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You […]

Settling for Second

As we venture through Holy Week and remember the ‘reason for the season’ and all of Christ’s sufferings for us, it just makes sense to take a look at the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert. There are many aspects of Jesus’ journey that we could ponder, but for me the one that hits […]

Letting Go (Part Two)

Due to the enormous response I received on Tuesday’s “Letting Go” post, I decided that the topics of anger, resentment and bitterness are clearly problems for many of us and another stab at it wouldn’t be such a bad idea!! On Tuesday, I touched a little bit on how embracing such poison becomes a habit, […]

Letting Go

Have you ever talked to someone that sounded so angry about a happenstance that occurred eons ago?  Have you ever heard the hurt and anguish gushing out over the past deeds of someone who no longer even exists?  Have YOU ever harbored hatred and resentment for someone who ‘did you wrong’? We have all talked […]

Encourage Each Other

One of my dearest friends has been through the wringer over the past month and it’s been absolutely heartbreaking to watch.  The poor thing has had problem after problem and she just can’t seem to catch a break (insert sad face and hear my boo’s)! Needless to say, it was not by ‘coincidence’ that I […]

Risky Business

I only caught the tail-end of Elon Musk’s interview on Sunday night’s 60 Minutes, but it made quite the impression on me.  As a matter of fact, I haven’t been able to think about much else. In case you have no idea who the heck Elon Musk is (no worries, I was clueless, too), let […]
