One of my oldest and dearest friends got married yesterday. We’ve known each other about 32 out of our 40 years of life. That’s a long time! We’ve been through a lot together. Yesterday, I missed seeing her fiance’ see her for the first time in her dress. They decided to take pictures before and do a first look shot. They …

After 15 years of being a co-parent in a marriage, I now find myself a single mom to my three kids. I thought I’d have help, but I don’t. This has been difficult to put it lightly.Parenting does not come with a manual. You don’t give birth and the doctor put your baby in one arm and a book in …

The new ads for Chef Boyardee show kids dancing in the kitchen waiting for their food to warm up. The tag line is “Chef don’t judge.” I think it’s cute, but so true about life.I have recently been accused of judging others by a couple of different people. These people are hurt and that’s their first defense. I have made …

Today, on my way home from exercising, I turned right on to a road, to see a large flat bed work truck covering both lanes. He was making a U turn for some reason. I could see through the cab how hard of a time he was having turning the wheel… and I thought, “Wow, no power steering in that …

I have struggled with my self esteem for as long as I can remember. I’ve never thought about myself correctly because of things that were said to me, and things that were done to hurt me. I’ve compared myself to other women in different ways. I still do sometimes, but it’s not healthy.  See, God made me short. I’m not …

This is a clay jar. It is something that was probably used during Bible times. I doubt they are used in today’s modern times. Why?  These were hand made by a person. Which takes time. They are also very fragile. Our society is too fast paced to see the actual wonder in a product like this.There were many uses for …

My Pastor is currently teaching a series on dysfunctional families and how to put the FUN back in! Yesterday’s message highlighted legalism and I wanted to share his thoughts as well as mine.His definition of legalism is “If you do this, then the outcome will ALWAYS be the same.

I never dreamed I’d be a single mom. I honestly thought I would grow old with my ex husband and have our grandchildren come over to play with us. That will not be happening. At this point, I’m fine with him being out of my life in that way. We do have three children together, so that keeps him around …

I attended a funeral last week for someone I did not know. I took one of my best friends as a favor to her, because she was very upset over the death of a close friend of her’s. She doesn’t think this friend ever accepted Jesus as his Savior, so she was hurting from that and the grief.The son of …

I’m a tree person. I love looking at unique, unusual trees and limbs. I am blessed to have a huge oak tree in my back yard and a few other trees. But, the limbs have grown so long that they are almost touching the ground!As beautiful as it can be, limbs that long can be dangerous. If we had a …
