Patience

A friend stops by requesting assistance with their car, the phone rings with a family member requiring immediate attention to some personal dilemma, the kids are fighting over who hit who first, dinner hasn’t even been started and tomorrow’s blog doesn’t even have the first word on the page…. The situations may be different, but […]

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 […]

Taking Care of Others

As seen in Thursday’s blog, taking care of yourself is crucial in order to be a valuable servant in the world we live in.  Clearly, when we don’t get the rest, exercise or God’s Power (through scripture and prayer) on a daily basis we become useless. However, the next step in the process is to […]

I don’t think any one of us made it through that day unaffected. The heinous actions of a few catapulted […]

Forgive and Forget

I told a story about a situation that is completely out of my control and how mercy and forgiveness keeps me at peace and how all hell breaks loose (excuse the phrase, but it’s too […]

Angry Times

With football season underway, I suppose I will be forced to watch network television and turn a deaf ear to the angry and irritating political commercials.  Argh…election years are always so annoying because of the constant bickering (and it doesn’t matter whose side you’re on)! Recently, I realized that with the late spring purchase of […]

Foul Mouth Meg

My name is Meg and I have a problem with swearing.  Now, it’s not as bad as it used to be, but the words that come out of my mouth are still not stellar. Anyone who knows me knows this to be true.  I’m sure they would agree that the F-word is the favorite and […]
