Pause Before Reacting to Drama

I believe God gives us challenges as learning tools. We don't want dramatic situations when they come our way. But, later, we can always find a positive side, and that is typically growth. What did you learn from the situation? Personal growth.

New Year or COVID Reference Point?

Today, as many of us are, I am welcoming in 2022! I debated whether I would acknowledge the change of date at all this year, but I eventually settled on January 1st as a reference point - not so much a reset point, and for that I am grateful. I believe these past few years … Continue reading New Year or COVID Reference Point?

Don’t Slip on Someone Else’s Banana Peels

Don’t slip on someone else’s banana peels! Let them be bananas, crazy, obscene, irrational, and belligerent! You don’t have to go there! The next time someone asks you what your mental boundary looks like―picture a wall of banana peels.

A Lesson in Forgiveness

God answers our prayers with a yes, no, maybe, or later. This one was a yes, and it came later, and he definitely helped me to release a stronghold. 

You “Look Normal” (Judging a Homeless Person by Their Cover)

Among the homeless, as it is in our typical society today, there are "bad" and "good" people, of course. People take advantage of others.

We must rule our actions with our brains, not by our feelings or emotions from our hearts.

Trust Jesus (the Homeless Man From the Woods)

Thank you for your words, trust God, trust Jesus. The world cannot be trusted. So, we don't love it and life's circumstances. We love you!

I talked about how I know this as a succinct distraction from Satan. A deflection from the enemy. A deviation from a focus on God, instead it is an (idolization) on COVID-19.

Accolades for Wrinkles

Social media screams out overt judgment on wrinkles. If you are an older woman with wrinkles, you must smoke or imbibe in alcohol on the heavy side. Right? Or, you could be eating the wrong diet, or perhaps you don’t use the latest and best anti-aging cream. Lord forbid, you have wrinkles!

Lessons From the Birds

They are a pair. They perch on the rooftop in blistering 103° Central Texas heat in a display of love, oblivious to their environment, which is often a jungle of noise (a plane, a car or truck whizzes by), strong breeze, and a neighborhood that man built. The sun comes up, the sun goes down. … Continue reading Lessons From the Birds

Musings on Aging

I find aging, or the topic thereof, interesting. When I was in my early 20’s I couldn’t wait to grow a little older. Being young can be tough, especially in an office workplace setting. I was at the bottom of the totem pole, and I knew it. I typed invoices on a manual typewriter and … Continue reading Musings on Aging
