“I Will Laugh at the World”

INSPIRE – 1.to breathe or blow into or upon  ; to infuse (as life) by breathing. Wow. That is awesome. I was going to write today about my “platform”…what I write about…and honestly I don’t know WHAT I  write about. It is pretty much whatever is on my heart or mind at that moment. But I…

Today “I will persist until I succeed.” I promise I will try my hardest not to digress and get off subject and talk about wine tasting again …oops, I already have. Anyway, this is the article that I intended to write yesterday… more inspirational quotes from Og Mandino to help “fill up your empty tank”…or at least…

Some Favorite Quotes to Keep in Mind

I am beyond irritated…considering I have just spent the last hour plus writing a blog post… and losing it! And what was it about? keeping good thoughts in my mind! Ha! Makes me think of that Alanis Morrisett song ” And isn’t it ironic…don’t you think? It’s like rain on your wedding day/ It’s a free ride when you’ve already…

I think I am in heaven. Really. And oddly,  just a couple of days ago the place that I am so contentedly sitting right now would have been unbearable. It is amazing what a little time can do.

Country Music Radio

That darned country music. I might listen and shake my head “yes, that’s right” ( like I spoke about yesterday…remember?” I’d die for her and she lives for me…”) Or I might be crying. Sometimes the songs just make me smile for their ridiculousness …”whiskey for my men…beer for my horses”…”I’m a red-neck girl…” and of course the terribly awful but catchy “Red…

Certain. Without a Doubt. Pressing On

“A certain time…A certain place…a certain plan…” this was the formula recommended by my preacher in a sermon a few weeks ago. These are his personal  “keys” for how to enter into a worship time with God.  Yes, he is a preacher…right? It is his job to spend time in prayer and study of the Word.
