5.19.2020 – Thoughts and notes about life lessons…

This morning I am filled with “awe and wonder”….

5.17.2020 – For the one who feels ‘forgotten’…

For the one who feels “forgotten” or “unseen” in this time… I feel compelled to write something this morning… It’s a lie. It’s a dangerous lie that will take you down into a dark pit of bitterness and offense, if you allow it to take you there. I’ve seen it destroy people…a slow and miserable,… Read More 5.17.2020 – For the one who feels ‘forgotten’…

5.16.2020 – Every “Page” Matters

I’ve only a few pages left in my current leather journal. It’s felt like this one has lasted forever. Don’t get me wrong, I love this journal. It’s one of those kinds with the really nice paper, doesn’t have the lines on the pages, and I can write as small, or as big as I… Read More 5.16.2020 – Every “Page” Matters

5.15.2020 – “Girls with Swords”

Yesterday morning on my Facebook page I shared a quote from a “Facebook Memory” from that date, in the year 2016. “Our God loves triumphing over what looks impossible; therefore, he calls an ambush without any means of escape “an opportunity”!” ― Lisa Bevere, Girls with Swords: Why Women Need to Fight Spiritual Battles (Take note… Read More 5.15.2020 – “Girls with Swords”

I’ve always loved this hymn, and I love it even more after hearing this new version of it, performed by Wilder Adkins and McKenzie Lockhart… In the Garden Words and Music by C.

5.5.2020 – Hunger for Answers

There is so much “out there” that we could “set our minds on” right now. Information, different perspectives, facts, studies, numbers, theories, opinions, feelings…SO much information. My mind wants all the information, I want to consider all the things, I want to know the unknowns, I want to be aware of what’s beneath the surface,… Read More 5.5.2020 – Hunger for Answers

5.3.2020 – Saying “No” to the Trail of Distraction

I woke up and almost immediately, it was like my mind wanted to dwell on some things that frustrate me about myself… It was like I thought for a moment, that if I dwelled on this thing, if I took this little trail, and if I ran it through my head a few times, I’d… Read More 5.3.2020 – Saying “No” to the Trail of Distraction
