The Death of a Legend…

I struggled with how to title this writing, but when it came down to it, I thought that this was the best way to honor him. Uncle Johnny was a legend to everyone who knew him. He was one of the sweetest, kindest, most loving people that I have known and had the...

Fear or Faith…

Or should I title this, "Natural vs. the Supernatural"? Recently my sister received a diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Typically this is a very grim diagnosis, but I am battling in the heavenlies for her with every bit of faith that I possess. Both she and my...

Papa meets us…

God longs to spend time with us and LOVES it when we pray. Today, one of the brothers from church, stayed with me to pray and it is amazing how Papa God met us here. We came with only one written prayer request and ended up praying over a list of 20 or more that God...

I haven’t posted for a while…

It's not that things haven't been going on in my life...it is because things have been going on that I have not posted for so long. I'm not even sure if many people come to visit the blog. I will update as soon as I am able. Stay tuned...

Toots and Ernie

I decided to add this category to my blog because family stories are oftentimes so funny and endearing, especially when they are told by Uncle Johnny. Tonight when I was talking to him, I asked him to tell me a story. He said, "Aww well, I don't know any stories". I...

How many times Lord?

How many times must I relearn how to give things back to you? To not hold on to feelings of hurt, sadness, disappointment, emotional hardships of various sorts. It seems like life is full of teachable moments regarding this. I have told others that if they will hand...

Becoming a friend to the friendless…

As a child, it was never my goal to be the most popular or hang out with the "in" crowd. I stuck with the kids that were pretty average...middle of the road sort of kids. With our "group" there weren't rigid rules about what you had to do to fit in...we were just...

Wisdom and Words…

I recently had a talk/text with my daughter about people being easily offended. It seems that everyone "wants" something to be offended about, because then that gives them the "right" to act out. That, of course, got my brain twitching about "what would scripture say...
