He died after a […]

How to move on when you’re in pain

If I were to ask you to tell me about your most painful memory, I bet you could tell me in a heartbeat. It doesn’t matter if it happened 30 years ago, I imagine you could still give me every detail. I could sit here and share mine, but the truth is — I don’t […]

The invisible enemy you need to know about

I am hearing a lot of people describe the COVID-19 as an invisible enemy. Just because a person looks fine on the outside doesn’t mean they aren’t carrying this invisible enemy around and unknowingly passing it on to others.

Pick Me

I have always loved Queen Anne’s Lace and I’ve often wondered how something so beautiful could possibly be a weed. If you’re not familiar with it, you can find it growing along a country road or next to a field. Be sure to look for it. Its unique design reminds me of a snowflake. Recently, […]

Don’t be Trapped by Bitterness

Daily Prompt: Forgive and Forget? http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/12/21/prompt-forgive/ Personally, I don’t find it a challenge to forgive, and I choose to remember.   After being in the ministry for many years, I’ve had a handful of people – primarily acquaintances, who asked me to forgive them because of inappropriate things that were said in front of me, […]

Unforgettable – That’s What You Are

Have you ever experienced a moment that you KNOW you’ll never forget? This is mine… This time last year, I was Christmas shopping in a mall that was packed with people. Although I was a bit frazzled, I tried to stay focused and moved forward through so many people who were either standing, talking, looking and walking in so many different directions.
