Trying Versus Training

Okay, I have fallen off of the exercise wagon in the last two weeks.  Sadly, I’ve gone from working out at least four times a week to absolutely and positively NOTHING.  No running, no gym, no classes.  Zilch. Nadda. I’m SO MAD AT MYSELF!!!   I usually do so much better than this! I have a […]

No Defense Will Do

Some days just don’t turn out like you think they should.  Today is one of those days. I have a very sick boy who has the flu and is having an asthma attack every time I turn around.  Pretty scary stuff. The worst part is that this kiddo is just like his momma when she […]

The Sneaky Little Sucker

Beware of the devil!  He’s a sneaking little sucker! Case in point:  Tuesday’s post was all about how Jesus has defeated the devil…yesterday, today and always!! Halleluiah! Amen! Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has […]

The Evil in the World

Watching the news is pretty scary these days.  Evil seems to be all around us and maybe even winning several of the battles.  YIKES! However, you do realize that the good guy wins in the end, right? Let me assure you…He does. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning […]

September 11th

It’s impossible for me to post a blog on September 11th and not think of two things…the terrifying events of 9/11 and my nephew’s birthday.  One is absolutely horrendous and the other is such a wonderful blessing that I feel completely stuck in the middle of sorrow and joy…Sigh. I’m even more emotionally confused this […]

Relying on God

Have you ever noticed how everything always works itself out? For example, that final exam in Calculus when you were a sophomore in college that you fretted about for the entire semester…do you even know what you scored?  Probably not. Or what about that appraisal that came in too high for the house you were […]

What is Sin?

Now that everyone knows about my Sinners’ Anonymous membership card, I thought it would be a good idea to discuss what sin really is so that we know if we are a current member or not! Pretty sure my card is snuggled comfortably next to my drivers’ license since I use it often.  Sigh. According […]

Are You Gracious?

Lately, I’ve been really saddened by the lack of compassion and understanding that I see in the world.  The worst part is that I am often an offender myself when faced with something I don’t comprehend, identify with, or those things that tick me off. Sigh…. We are all too quick to make assumptions, voice […]

Under Attack

Ever have one of those days where absolutely everything went awry?  Or maybe you’ve had a year or two that you seemed to struggle through and you wondered what in the world was going on. My husband’s boss said it best the year that both of our fathers passed away, “Man, you’ve had it rough […]

Who Are You Following?

Everything you read on the internet is not TRUE. (Reminds me of the State Farm commercial about the French model…hee, hee!!) Recently, I learned this the hard way after seeing a post on Facebook that Joel Osteen was leaving the Christian church and delving into atheism. There were many comments on a linked website about […]
