Doing What is Right seems difficult after summer's break. But September is here and although I love the special treats like Pumpkin Spice Latte with a Maple Leaf Cookie from Trader Joes. I don't always feel thrilled about our school schedule or being a responsible housewife. I've had a hard time getting started again especially... Continue Reading →
One of my yearly Summer projects is going through my kid's rooms to remove the things they've outgrown. Last Summer, there were items my daughter was ready to give away that I wasn't ready to part with. One was a doll and doll bed. She's coming to the age where she's ready to give up...

Life is sometimes so difficult that you feel like you are being put through a test. It's like you are in a tunnel of trials. Although one crisis gets cleared up another crazy circumstance comes your way. When will there be light at the end of this tunnel? I experienced my own crazy moments which... Continue Reading →
I feel like we've lived out a horror movie these last couple of months. It was more like a jump scare. "A jump scare is a technique often used in horror films and video games, intended to scare the audience by surprising them with an abrupt change in image or event."

When we go through a crisis, our relationship with God changes to what is needed for the moment. But when the crisis is over, the relationship needs to... Continue Reading →
I don't know about you, but I'm so done thinking about this mess. I'm done watching the daily numbers go up. I'm tired of trying to wear something on my face that fogs up my glasses when I go shopping. I'm tired of cooking every meal at home. I'm tired of trying to find a quiet place to write when conference calls for work and school video conferencing are going on at the same time in different rooms. So today I put on Christian worship music, using my earbuds to block out all the other conversations.
I don't know about you, but I'm so done thinking about this COVID-19 crisis. I'm done watching the daily number of new cases.

I'm so sick of TV! It seems like there is a real shortage of wholesome shows and movies to watch. Last year, while recovering from an illness, I spent a lot of time binge watching TV. I didn't have much energy, so this is what I did to occupy my time and my mind. I... Continue Reading →
With the political upheaval going on in our country it's easy to get discouraged and think the worst in our country. Right, Left, blah blah blah. I just get tired of it. Sometimes I wait until I'm just so worried sick about an issue before I bring it to God. I finally prayed. Prayer: I... Continue Reading →
Weekly, I drive past a place in the road where my son drove his first car off a 50 foot cliff. Thankfully that afternoon three years ago he survived that crash but his car did not. You see, there was a curve in the road. He continued driving straight and didn't turn with the road.... Continue Reading →
