A Seat at my table…

During this physical distancing time, I have re-organized my closets, my dresser, the kitchen cabinets, my office desk, and the bookshelves. I have sorted in stacks of what I will keep, donate, and throw away. So it occurred to me, what in my relationships do I need to re-organize? How am I relating to the... Continue Reading →

I thought I was done…

Three years and over 100  blog posts, I thought I had written enough, said enough, encouraged enough, brought enough insight, and it was time to wrap my blog in a beautiful, pretty bow. I didn't believe that my weekly blogging had many legs left, and this was going to be my last post. BUT GOD!... Continue Reading →

Lessons during Quarantine…

Letting go requires self-control. Read that again...slowly. By definition, self-control requires -restraint exercised over one's own impulses, emotions, or desires. When we let something go, when we release control of all things, self-control must take front and center.  In our human nature, when we let things go, we panic, fear sets in, and we immediately...

You are safe…

The other day I read the funniest tweet ever... “been quarantined with my wife for four weeks now.

What are the chances? All comments that connect to what we believe... Continue Reading →

I am no longer asking for permission…

All my life, I've made measured decisions. Is this a good idea?  Will it be disrespectful?  Will I hurt someone's feelings?  Will I be judged? Will they stop being my friend?  Am I talented enough? Will I be pretty enough?  Will I be smart enough?  Will I be respected?  Will they accept me? As I've... Continue Reading →

Now what…

Here it is -  16 months, of school, completed and now what? I found myself experiencing a real sense of anxiety. I normally am not one to get anxious.  I'm pretty laid back about things. I wait and pray and trust. Yet I found myself panicking and fretting and worrying about what is next?  What was... Continue Reading →

The price of silence…

It seemed so innocent. A post...I left a comment and then... BANG!!!   Just like that, I was entangled in a thread that left my head spinning.  I offered what I thought was an educated opposing comment to something a relative posted. What I didn't know at that moment, that they were not inviting opposing... Continue Reading →

Garage Sale…

“Don’t accumulate possessions; accumulate experiences - Mark Batterson Have you walked up to a garage sale or estate sale and wondered how much the homeowner must have "loved" these items, and now here they are laid out on a table going for just a few bucks?  I often wonder did these things bring joy, love,...
