I have felt really out-of-sorts the past few days.
I’m not playing around anymore. It’s time.
Sometimes I wonder if I ever have a, one thing. All of my life, I’ve been the ‘she’ of a million words and numbers, I thoroughly loved reading the dictionary and encyclopedias that my family had. I was that girl, that one that does it all. I raised my hand in class more than itContinue reading “One Thing”
I’ve not been here in a while, this place in my mind is reserved. Too many thoughts rambling about, searching for words. Deception, lies, deceit, words unjust and unclean to my mind and my thoughts; a world full of people who are drowning in hurt; they have let pride and stench from the ugly andContinue reading “Certain Reservations”
“When people think of generosity, they usually think of gift giving, especially during the winter holidays. The focus is on what you give and what you get. A few others focus on the needy. On an daily basis, most people in public are bombarded with homeless people offering to work for food, and on televisionContinue reading “Attitude of Gratitude”
Proverbs 15:1 — “A soft answer turns away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.” Take every thought captive. I always thought I knew what this meant, but I was very wrong about it.

A person would have a hard time capturing that on a 1960’s Kodak Camera, my phone camera isn’t the bestContinue reading “Like a Flashlight”
“Sitting in the dark. In the terrible. In what seems impossible. The understanding of life as gift – is more fundamental for our stance toward life preservation than the language of right to life. The understanding of life as a gift isn’t overwrought eloquence – it’s understanding how we overcome the enemy. Life as aContinue reading “Life Preserved”
We are built both to give and to receive. To expect to do one without doing the other is like, sitting on one end of the teeter totter expecting to have a good time going up and down, while refusing to allow anyone to sit on the other side. In times of difficulty, it isContinue reading “The Gift of Giving”
I’ve been softly singing these words as I wander through my days lately. It’s in these notes that have hung on my tongue since long ago, on that Saturday afternoon when I stood and watched as tongues of fire devoured our home, our orchard and my vehicle. I find myself on my knees as IContinue reading “Three Days Later…”
