Why You Should Tell Your Story Before It’s Over

I wrote this article some time ago after reading a meme on Facebook.  It struck me so important to share how strongly I believe this saying is a detriment to inspiring others with our story already in progress that I spoke out about it.  That, in turn, inspired others to believe that they might have […]

Deliver Me

Two weeks ago, I shared the dark place I was in after my year of faith that never (always) was and my husband’s job loss. This week I want to share how God has begun to deliver me from that dark place into His light.  As is usually the case with God, it’s a series of small […]

I knew I was in trouble when I lost my sense of humor

I’ve always been a clown. I love making people laugh, especially myself. The more struggles life threw at me the more humorously I saw things. Until one day when I just couldn’t find anything funny to say. So I just didn’t post that day on Facebook…or the next day, or the next day, or the […]

I have a confession to make…

I’m going to admit something I’ve been trying to hide.  I’ve been struggling lately.  Actually, I’ve struggled with this for quite some time on and off.  I’m a bit frustrated and overwhelmed, but mostly I’ve been feeling like nobody cares. It’s silly, really.  An innocent joke made by a family member here.  A small perceived […]

Like if You’re for Good Stuff

I’ve seen several graphics on Facebook that seem rather silly to me.  They say things like, “Like if you’re against violence.”  Would anyone be FOR violence?  And how would you know if your friends, who didn’t click like, actually were pro violence or if they just felt contrary? Just seems an odd kind of post […]

Did you unfriend anyone yesterday?

Yesterday was National Unfriend Day.  Got me thinking.  What do you unfriend people for? Making a negative comment?  Posting something of the opposite political persuasion?  Posting what they are having for dinner…27 times a day? I dunno about you, but I have about 3000 “friends” on Facebook, some of which have NEVER talked to me–even […]

Crisis a Day Club

Don’tcha just hate it when you discover you’re subscribed to something you never wanted?  This year, every time I downloaded something, it automatically came with Google Chrome.  After a while I’d discover it and uninstall it.  Annoying! Two months ago, I inadvertently signed up for the Crisis a Day Club.  Last weekend I unsubscribed. It […]

The Thrill of iPhone Victory

After several weeks (which seem like years), I emerge victorious!  Here is a list of things I have learned to do on my new iPhone: 1. Answer and make a phone call 2. Send and receive a text 3. Take a picture (can’t yet post it to Facebook) 4. Get email 5. View Facebook (nope, […]

An inspirational 9-11 message

Twelve years ago, our country was attacked. So many people’s lives changed that day.  I can still remember exactly what I was doing when I heard.  As information unfolded, I found that I didn’t know anyone personally who was killed during 9-11…until a few months ago. Kenny was a childhood friend when I lived in […]
