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 […]

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 […]

Friendships through Life

Today is the birthday of one of my childhood besties.  I haven’t talked to her in years, but once in a while I think about our friendship and what value it brought to my life. I can still remember the many sleepovers, scary movies, dance routines, snow tunnels, and bike riding, walking to school, becoming […]

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. […]

Negative Notions

I am currently reading an amazing book by Phillip Yancey called Vanishing Grace.  If you’ve never read any of his books, I would highly recommend that you do! Anyway, you would think by the title that it would be right at the top of my list of negative notions that drive me crazy – in […]

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 […]

Legacies

It is days like today that I wonder what I kind of legacy I will leave to my family, friends and the world. I’m currently 41 and if I’m lucky, I have another 40+ years to figure out what my contribution will be and how to accomplish the tasks associated with it.  Time is running […]

Thinking Straight

Have you ever found yourself at a crossroads with no idea which way to head?  Have you been bombarded with tasks, appointments, and projects then realize there is no way you can possibly complete all of them…but which ones do you give the boot and which ones should you do? You are far from alone! […]

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 […]
