So now what?

by I just felt a shift in my purpose. So many thoughts are spinning in my head, I figured I should sit down and write something. It’s clear that my home life is changing before my eyes. I’m only responsible for Kyle’s daily needs now. The other two are older, and are not really here […]

Sins of the mother/father…

IMG013 (2)

by I started a discussion on Facebook today about children and whether we adults owe them access to their non-custodial parent’s family. Know that I do personally know a few awesome dads who do the then and the then-some, so this one is just as valid for you guys–do you allow your kids access to […]

Jab, jab, jab, upper-cut…

by Mercy. Grace. Undeserved kindness. Love. Forgiveness. Peace. These are some of the best gifts I’ve ever received, and as such, they’ve allowed and encouraged me to do nice things for others on occasion. The truth is I’m not a nice person; it is never my first inclination to reach out. Do this exercise with […]

Do it for YOU.

by “Whatever you are doing, work at it whole-souled as for Jehovah, and not for men.”–Col 3:23 (NWT) Sounds conflicting, but let me explain. You know how we do so many things for our kids, making sure they don’t lack where we did, and providing better than we had? Well, we messed up on that […]

“Your enemies a footstool…”

by How many different places do we read about God’s promise to Jesus that he will make his enemies a footstool for his feet? At least a couple. But have you ever thought about it, like get the symbolism of it, and appreciate that by being on the right team, you too can reap the […]

The devil is a liar!

by I’m compelled to send this late edition because amidst my own struggle, I am encouraged. I swear the devil has been busy around here lately, with big and little things, but I just feel this reassurance, and peace. Basically, I was inspired to share with you that it’s going to be all right. I’m […]

The Phoenix.

by So I have this headache. It’s not your average headache; it extends down the left side of my neck and into my stomach. It disrupts my eating habits, sleep pattern, and thought processes. Actually, it seems to be enhancing my thought processes. But it’s not good. I know it’s stress. I have a meeting […]
