Why an Acorn is More than a Nut with a French Beret

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. I knew this day would inevitably come…it had to after all. After July comes August, then September, then October…that is the way it works. I’ve learned that if I can wait patiently during times that are less than pleasant, and keep in mind the sage words, “This too shall pass” that everything will work out. Tracy McMillan says, “Everything works out in the end…if it hasn’t worked out, it’s not the end.” I really believe that.

Part 2: Not Attitude…Gratitude

Yes, less like Eeyore. But Eeyore is a cute little purple donkey who, other than seeing gray clouds instead of the silver linings, is a very sweet guy. We could be WAY worse than an Eeyore. In fact, we could and might be one of the those that Paul prophesied about in 2 Timothy 3:1-4 “But mark this: There will be…

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.

Keeping it Light

I’ve been asking myself the past few days how to “stay in a good place” regardless of where I am. Does the actually physical space I inhabit or all of the events that surround me have to impact my happiness, or lack-there-of? And if outside forces do affect me, what kind of shield can I put on to protect myself from negative permeating influences…
