The Problem With Dead Things

(This is a rewrite of an old post I wrote on another blog, but still relevant) I once knew someone who used to carry a corpse around with her. Everywhere she went people would say, “Ew! What is that smell?” “What smell? I don’t smell anything.” She would answer, as she sprayed perfume into the […]

Join with me on my happy dance. After years of writing, shelfing, re-writing, and shelfing, and rewriting… my book has finally been published! I am thrilled!

If I could change One Thing…

If you could go back in time and change one thing, have one do-over, what would it be? Have you ever wondered? I had several answers when I first thought about this question. My mind quickly recalled times when I said yes when I should have said no, or said no when I should have […]

Lily of the Valley

I am sitting at my laptop and wanting to write a post to inspire and encourage. You ever have those moments where your thoughts are being so consumed with the love of God and you want to share it? Such love can not be contained. I can not put my thoughts into a single coherent […]

Who is God the Father to you?

If I ask you, who is God the Father to you, you may have different answers and may even find it easy to answer.  But, if I ask you who are you to God the Father, I think, maybe, we would hear some crickets. We see the greatness of God, we read His Word and […]

Under Fire

“Cover me! I am going in!” “Go! I got your back!” This is the beauty of relationship. For this reason, relationships are important, to watch over each other and cover each other. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. When one is weak, then the other stands up and covers them with their strength. Two are better […]
