A New Day

When the days become more like drudgery than opportunities – you know something needs to change. Change?  How about winning the lottery?  Moving to the beach with servants at our beckon call?  What about a life on Easy Street? Now that is what I call some good changes!!! HA! Most of the time we think […]

Will You Be My Valentine?

This Saturday marks the 24th Valentine’s Day with the love of my life!  I guess time flies when you are having fun!  WOW!!! The fun hasn’t been without a few hiccups, though. However, the longer I live the more I’ve discovered that love really is a decision. Marriage is certainly not some fairy tale where […]

Reducing Regret

As with every start of a new year, I am contemplating the many things I would like to do, change, try and/or stop.  My list is long and quite overwhelming, but it does speak volumes of my Personal Character Inventory & Action Plan. Yes, I have my very own acronym that I JUST made up!!! […]

Another Year

Tomorrow is my birthday!  Woohoo! Funny, even as I’m getting older, I really love celebrating my birthday.  It’s probably my sick and twisted love for celebrating all things ME!!!  HAHA!  I’m sure my family would agree with this statement whole-heartedly. I have found that with each passing year, I continue to do the following: Learn […]

Being Ethical…No Matter What

Sometimes you win.  Sometimes you lose.  Regardless of any outcome, the ethics you use are up to you. Guess that means no back-stabbing, hair-pulling or screaming ‘you started it’!!! Grrrr…. (I’m such a girl!!) Last week’s blog post was about praising God no matter what happens or what situations we currently find ourselves in.  Praising […]

Obligation

Each time you read my blog you get the inside scoop on my personal story of Christian living.  Sadly, my life is full of ups and downs and downright failures, but all in all I hope it is clear that I put forth great effort to live a life that is pleasing to God on […]

A Change of Plans

On Tuesday I discussed the importance of revisiting our 2014 goals and making an effort to accomplish as many as possible. However, I failed to mention the probability of a change of plans…and oh, are there sometimes BIG changes in the plans we make!! For example, if you had asked me four years ago whether […]

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 […]

Giving it up to God

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday.  Of course, this means that the march towards Easter is under way and the ‘reason for the season’ is weighing heavy on the hearts and minds of Christians everywhere. Lent has officially begun and its traditional purpose is to prepare believers through prayer, repentance, change and sacrifice. Sounds kinda like a […]

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 […]
