“Loves Me Like Jesus” – Makes Me Want to HURL

I have A LOT to do today…but I can tell that I am not going to be able to concentrate until I get this off of my chest. Please don’t misunderstand me…I am a definitely a Jesus loving, Good- Ol’ -Country girl. I’ve lived in Tennessee, Texas, Florida, Georgia, Alabama…I love me some country music radio – and the countrier…

“I have decided to stick with love…” MLK

In honor and commemoration of Martin Luther King, Jr. I wanted to offer you a few of his quotes to consider today. “Darkness  cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate;  only love can do that.” “Our  scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and  misguided men.”…

Motherhood is a quick and complete submersion into a brand new, indescribable world.  It is like nothing else. Yes, it is messy and at times terrifying, but it is also dazzling… blindingly beautiful. The moment that I looked upon the face of my newborn child, my life was transformed. In a split second, without even realizing the shift had occurred,…

Sacred Poems and Prayers

Psalm 1… a good place to start a much-needed read-through of the Bible. When I decided that my first New Year’s Resolution was to spend daily time with God it seemed important that I have a plan. Time with God could mean anything really – an acknowledgement that I made it through another night and woke…
