What a lucky year it’s been
Today is my birthday. Last year, March 19, was a warm beautiful, sunny day. Which was really significant because we had a polar vortex winter and I can’t begin to explain how brutally cold it was. Cessna said it was going to be a lucky year and 33, was quite the year! Travel. I traveled…
The sky is all we have
Have you ever watched the sunset? The sky lighting up with hues of yellow, orange and pink, taking the sun to another place. I’m here, watching the most beautiful sunset in the world, thinking about so many things. Dating is so difficult, complicated in fact. It’s been quite some time since Cessna accused me of…
What about me
Well, what about me? We would be lying to ourselves if we denied that we live in a “what about me” era. And even if our minds didn’t quite go to that, there’s always voices around you chirping “well, what about you” as if it is all about you. Don’t misunderstand, there are times when…
Hate is too great a burden
How do you love your enemies? The people that wrong you and intentionally try to hurt you? The ones that hold a grudge against you for no reason? How do love them? How do you love the people that wish you harm? How do you show kindness to people that twist and manipulate your words?…

The other night I was going through old pictures and reminiscing the things of the past. I didn’t expect it, but a painful memory came to mind. When I was growing up, I had the worst memory! I couldn’t remember birthdays, what people said, I could even remember people. My sister can testify to this…
Why did God love King David?
At times it’s hard for me fully comprehend how God could love King David as much as He did. David began as a nobody. His story wasn’t so significant. That is until David was brought into the spot light. It’s in the spot light where David did marvelous things. He won many battles and fought…
In the midst of our problems, our focus is on our problems and our efforts to fix them. We put so much energy into making things right again, making things whole. Unfortunately we can not undo what we have done. But what an incredible truth to know even then, in the mess I create –…
Sometimes life requires us to apologize first, and not because we were wrong. I think it takes great strength to say “I’m sorry”, we place ourselves in a vulnerable position. It by no means makes us weak, it just shows that we are forgiving. After all Jesus commended us to forgive others. And we don’t…
