Fatigue, Failures, and Inspiration

March 22, 2017 – Fatigue It seems that for the most of my life, I have never gotten enough sleep. Other than when I was a child, I might average 5-6 hours a night and maybe a short nap during the day. They say as you get older, you need less sleep, but to me […]

Blessings, Encouragement and Hope

March 19, 2017 – Blessings Count your blessings name them one by one, Count your blessings see what God has done (Lyrics by John Oatman Jr.) There were many years in my life that I didn’t think I was blessed, no, in fact I had gotten to the point where I completely had started to […]

Opportunities, Qualifications, and Walk a Mile

March 16, 2017 – Opportunities All your life you hear people telling you about opportunity. “Opportunity is knocking”, “You’d better grab that opportunity while you can”. Whether it is a career move, buying a house, purchasing something online or buying that new car, opportunities present themselves everyday. It might be an opportunity to see a […]

Fear, Sorrow and Celebration, the Future

March 13, 2017 – Fear We all fear something. For some people it’s the fear of never amounting to what they want to be, for others it is the fear of losing a job, a home, friends or a loved one. For many the fear is that of death. I remember that my older sister […]

Anticipation, Mrs. Beasley and Starlings

Imagination, Messages, Understanding God

March 4, 2017 –  Imagination Where would we be without imagination? It was imagination that invented the wheel. It was imagination that invented the horse drawn carriage, and later the motorized cars, trains, buses, and planes that take us where we need to go. Imagination is responsible for all of our electronic devices, for the […]

Laughing at Myself, Angry Words, Unanswered Prayer

March 1, 2017 – Laughing at Myself Humor has long been one of the necessary and important aspects of human nature. Without humor, we would never find things funny, everything would be dull and uneventful. When we laugh, we actually improve our health, physically and mentally, but we need to choose what to laugh at. […]

Laughter, Trouble Times, Holding Steadfast

February 26, 2017 – Laughter I was watching a video on Facebook the other day, and before it was over I was sitting there doing belly laughs. It was a video someone put together of babies laughing. Can anyone honestly say that they can hold back from laughing when they hear a child’s laughter? Or […]
