Marriage

Tomorrow marks my twenty-second wedding anniversary!  Woohoo!!  I know, it’s crazy that we haven’t killed each other yet…although, there is still time!!  HAHA! For us, we usually just go to a nice dinner and exchange cards.  So, as I was browsing the card isle the other day looking for the perfect message to give to […]

Identity Crisis

Our actions speak volumes about who we really are from the inside out.  What do your actions say about you? Unfortunately, my behavior reveals that I am struggling with an identity crisis.  Sigh. There is nothing worse than wanting to make the right choices, but find that you make the wrong ones on a regular […]

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 Bible

Lately, my church has been doing a sermon series called, Fully Alive in Christ.  It’s been interesting, informational and downright eye-opening.  Love it when that happens!!! The biggest take-away I’ve had so far during this sermon series is how few of us actually dust off our Bibles, open them up and READ. Crazy, I know. […]

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 […]

Fairness

Anyone who has ever told you that life is fair is gravely mistaken.  In fact, to think that our lives will even come close to being fair will set us up for disappointment, disillusionment, and frustration. First of all, when we judge what is or isn’t fair to us…whose fairness stick are we using?  Our […]

Meanies

Bullying is a hot topic these days.  Campaigns, movies, classes and assemblies all address the same thing…people doing mean things to other people. This issue is not new.  People have been mean to one another since the beginning of time.  All you have to do is look in the Bible and you can find bullies […]

Grace

Yesterday, my six-year-old came home and asked me what ‘grace’ was.  He said he had a girl in his class named Grace and that she was nice, so he was thinking that was what it meant.  Talk about warm my heart…precious boy! Of course, his teacher had given the definition during school, but he had […]

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 […]

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, […]
