It’s About Them

One of my all time favorite books is, ‘The Purpose Driven Life’, by Rick Warren. The first time I read the book, the first sentence smacked me in the face. Do you know what it says? “It’s not about you.” What a painful revelation. 🙂 I’m seeing more Bloggers deleting their Facebook accounts. I canceled […]

Feel the Music

I hear this song almost every time I get into my truck. This is the Acoustic version, so it will sound a little different than what you hear on the radio. This has been in my draft folder all week, but I feel led to share it now. It reminds me when I am too […]

Miracle Grow

I was watching my little dog this morning. He was sitting, but anxiously awaiting my daughter’s door to open. That is all he wanted. To see my daughter walk into view. How simple is that? We both give him attention, but I am the Mama. I make sure the food and water bowls are full, […]

God Is Sneaky

I’ve listened to a lot of Joyce Meyer over the years. I enjoy her because she yells, and yes, I need that. She went through a season where she was afraid to wear any of her favorite jewelry out in public. She was afraid God would tell her to give it away. I laugh at […]

In Human Form

As I sit here, eating the last of the candy corn, I’m noticing the change in season. Candy corn will not be available in stores until next October. I don’t hunt it down and hoard it, but enjoy it while it’s in season. Now is the last bloom of the season for my trusty Bougainvillea. […]
