Disguised Blessings

Yesterday, I talked about my experiences on coping with grief. I’ve had a hard time coping with two deaths in particular: the death of my friend Angie, and the death of my Aunt Doll. After I wrote the post, “The Pain of Losing a Loved One,” I was reminded of the “disguised blessings” that occurred… Read More

The Pain of Losing a Loved One

This weekend will make two years since my Aunt Doll passed away. I know that time heals all wounds, but this one is taking a long time. Aunt Doll babysat me when I was small. I was the flower girl in her wedding. We took countless road trips together to my grandparents’ home. She helped… Read More

The Power of Our Testimony

Life is a journey, filled with all kinds of adventures. Some of them are good, some of them are not so good. But isn’t it great that we have a faithful God that we can run to when times get rough? Isn’t it great to serve a God that can deliver us from any situation… Read More

One day, I was outside watering our grass. We hadn’t purchased a sprinkler yet, so I had to do it the old-fashioned way and use a water hose. It was a very warm day and it seemed like the grass was sucking up the water quicker than it would come out of the water hose… Read More

The Price of Adultery

Over the past few months, the news has been flooded with stories about people committing adultery. It’s really sad and I hope it’s not an indicator of the way our society is headed.

The Need to Please

We all are born with the innate need to please. When we are children, we desire to please our parents. Even my two year old desires to please me by doing his “chores” around the house. He claps for himself after he does them and looks at me for approval after he’s done. If I… Read More

Investing in Your Marriage

My husband and I are getting ready to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. I’m so thankful for my husband and the relationship that we have. I know that God brought us together. My husband and I started off as friends. We had no romantic interest in each other whatsoever. But somewhere in the friendship, things… Read More

Say No, So You Can Say Yes

Living a life of balance is important. There are so many things to do, so many options, so many choices. But we can’t always do everything that is in our heart to do. Sometimes, you have to say no so you can say yes. I might have to say no to personal time, so I… Read More
