Battles

I was saddened to hear of the impending divorce between Lysa TerKeurst and her husband.  Is no one safe?  I guess not ☹ In case you don’t know who Lysa is, she is the founder and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries.  Additionally, she is an author, blog writer, speaker and teacher.  Her mission is to […]

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 […]

Meeting Jesus

Sunday’s Easter service was amazing!  Not only was I able to worship with friends and family, but I also learned that hallelujah means “Praise God” and that amen means “I believe it.”  Love it when I learn new stuff!!! As I listened to the sermon that listed the many prophesies of the coming of Christ […]

Toeing the Line

Living wisely is hard to do.  (In case you didn’t know that!) It’s not that having or attaining knowledge is all that hard, but the humility that comes along with wisdom throws most of us for a loop! I don’t know about you, but I don’t find myself being all that humble very often. In […]

The Cancer That Really Kills

Lately, my heart has hurt as I’ve remembered a dear friend who died of breast cancer two years ago this past week.  In her short life she touched many and made a profound impact on all those around who met her. Susan was such an amazing person with a penchant for life! Sadly, her family […]

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 […]

Watch What You Say

The tongue is a critical piece to the human body.  It helps us taste, swallow, talk and clean our teeth.  Just with these basic functions of this multi-faceted muscle; we can enjoy dinner, conversation and a bright smile!  The tongue is sounding pretty fantastic…until we use it for evil!!!  (Insert scary music!) By evil, I […]

Sleeping with the Enemy

Don’t know if you have seen the Julia Roberts’ movie Sleeping with the Enemy from 1991, but if you haven’t…you gotta see it!  It’s scary, psychotic, thrilling and freeing.  One of my all-time favorites and it makes you feel better when the bad guy gets taken down in the end!! Everyone likes a happy ending. […]

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, […]

Encourage Each Other

One of my dearest friends has been through the wringer over the past month and it’s been absolutely heartbreaking to watch.  The poor thing has had problem after problem and she just can’t seem to catch a break (insert sad face and hear my boo’s)! Needless to say, it was not by ‘coincidence’ that I […]
