When his team lost and many of his players move away, he is not only disappointed but he believes he isn’t a success. He doesn’t see any way that … Read More Who Are You?
God is so faithful isn’t He? I’ve been struggling so much lately with acceptance and condemnation. And yet, God has shown Himself so faithful. While I’ve been in tears, he’s been right there next to me. Even when I don’t see Him.

A Personal Journey 2 Corinthians 10:12 ” We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves.

This habit or character trait is self-condemnation. You see, I have … Read More No Condemnation
My History I have taken a specific little pill most of my life. This pill, called Synthroid (Levothyroxin), is used to manage my thyroid levels by supplementing the amount of thyroxin in my body.

A Tragic Loss Over the weekend, many news channels, posts and articles were written, telling us of Disney Channel actor Cameron Boyce’s death from a seizure at age 20! Twenty years old is such a young age to die, and it seems strange I’m sure to many who are unaware of seizures and Epilepsy, that someone can die from having a seizure. Unfortunately, many … Read More Love and Learn

Our culture loves acronyms! I read texts and various forms of social media that use SMH(Shake My Head), BTW(By The Way) LOL and many other acronyms. I use some myself. Some are funny, some are used just to abbreviate what we want to say. Some are less than discreet and some represent organizations, or a way of life. I have an acronym for you … Read More TLGF
The leaders of our country, especially our President, Donald Trump, need prayer. This applies whether you like him or agree with him! The title of President carries a great amount of responsibility.

For those of us who have children already, when we see that someone is hurt, we ask our child,”was this an accident or did you do this on purpose?” They get real quiet and say that they did it on purpose! This means usually that they thought about it ahead of time, this was their “intent or objective.” It is the reason for which … Read More On Purpose
