Humility May Help

We need help I wasn’t planning to talk about politics, but I’ve also never been one to back down from a challenge. And politics is something I enjoy.  If nothing else Trump has made this season has been interesting and entertaining hasn’t he?.  And...

I Find the Need to Create

I’ve been daydreaming about the classes on Groupon for the byob painting classes. A glass of wine and painting a pretty picture sounds lovely. I can hear Bob Ross’s soft voice through the solid state mono speaker reminding me that there are no mistakes...

The Day Social Media Died

If Social Media Died Tomorrow If social media died tomorrow I imagine people might actually begin to be real friends again.  They’d carry on a real life face to face conversation that didn’t get cut short with “Oh I saw that on Facebook”...

5 Ways to Build– Five Minute Friday

Let’s Build Together The news in recent days hasn’t been very encouraging.  A black man shot here, police officers killed there, a white woman shot somewhere else. And my heart breaks, because we should be building up instead of tearing down.  We should build...

Ways to Celebrate Independence Day

Dwindling Freedom I think we can all agree, there is a dwindling freedom in our country.  It is being whittled away. Some might even say chiseled out or pounded away with a sledgehammer. And it is. Today, much of history has been rewritten.  We can barely say what we...

Condemnation abounds. Judgments made. Ugly words are written down and spoken much like a horseshoe is thrown down the yard aimed at the stake instead of seasoned with grace. And close counts because regardless what the childhood nursery rhyme says, words do hurt.  But...

Five Minute Friday –Rest

Now is not the time to rest.  I wish it was.  It feels like we’ve been flying on hyper drive for several months.  Going here and there, traveling, some planned, some not so planned trips, like my visit to Grand Rapids for the writer’s conference that I...
It’s How We Lose that Matters

It’s How We Lose that Matters

Linking up with Kate and the gang for Five Minute Friday today.  This week’s word is lose. There is a movie my kids love to watch.  It’s a Feature Film for Families, low budget flick, but the message is a good one.  The main character is the ONE....

Devastating! Just Devastating!

What happened in Orlando this past weekend was a tragic event for all of America. There is no excuse, absolutely no excuse for any gunman anywhere to walk in to any place of business to open fire on innocent people. I have been mulling this post around in my mind...
