As you, my readers know, I tend to keep my blogs brief. A quick thought, something that happened, or something the Lord showed me. Today’s blog is a little more involved because, well, I have the time, and most of you do too. So here goes. I started reading in the book of Daniel about … More God’s Wheelchair
He was a red-headed young boy, about nine years old. He had a “learning disability” and was overweight, he had three eyes, and wore a colorful plaid jacket. His parents loved him very much. I dreamed this last night. I asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. He replied, “A banker.” … More The three eyed boy #different #unique
Winter is always tough for me. I dislike being cold, obviously; it’s so much fuss to put on layers of clothes just to go to the mailbox or take Bailey outside. I try to keep myself busy of course. There’s always things to do, read, write, nap, watch movies (isn’t winter a great time to … More I fell into a deep depression…
My bible study group is reading The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer, originally published in 1948. Tozer’s style of writing is not what we are used to; his sentences have a different cadence than modern writers. Sentence structure is longer. The spiritual truths Tozer shares are deep. We have decided as we study this book to … More Mornings with A. W. Tozer part 1 #Fire #LindseyStirling
I came into work yesterday and my department was already busy. Instead of having a few minutes to read emails, check the job queue, and get settled, I immediately had to ring up a customer’s order. There was chaos all around me, so I was not concentrating on the task. I handed him his receipt, … More Seventeen cents made my day
I woke up in the middle of the night, and felt God drop something into my spirit. I am not sure what the total package is yet, but I fell back to sleep and had a dream. A friend of mine was celebrating a birthday, and serving decorated cupcakes instead of a cake. Miniature figures, … More A swan dream
January is slow for retail. Hours have been cut in my store and I was taken from my department to run the front register. I thought back to when I was a kid, and I watched the women who worked the checkout register in the grocery store. Things were different then–the registers did not run … More Do plastic bags offend you?

January 6 is always a tough day for me. It’s the anniversary of a loss I experienced as a teenager. This year, I found out that someone I knew died the day after Christmas. It saddened me. This person was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in October, and he’s gone already. I know that he … More In Heaven, you don’t have to pee.
There was a saying a few years ago: “Practice Random Acts of Kindness.” It meant hold a door open for someone, smile at a stranger, give a lonely person a smile. Whatever you could find to do. It seemed that someone came up with this idea to make the word a better place. Actually, God … More random vs. not random
I tried to sell my husband’s snow tires on eBay. A guy bid on them, won the auction, but now doesn’t want them. He has 100% good reviews on eBay, so I figured he knows how it works. He bought tires somewhere else. I told him “that is not how eBay works .” He responded … More I need your opinion
This morning while driving to work, I saw a man on the side of the road, holding a cardboard sign. I had a $5 bill in my pocket, and I decided to pull over and give it to him. I grabbed his arm without thinking, and said, “Do you know Jesus?” “Everyday,” he replied. What … More The servant on the side of the road
My last post on this blog was in August, one week before I started my new job. I had been looking for a year. As you know, I’ve spent most of the last ten years sick in one form or another: cancer, vertigo, surgeries, chest pains, infections, hospital stays, almost died a few times…etc. I … More Employed.
Let’s say I am going to a flea market. I see a crystal plate that I like and would like to buy. Me: Hi there. How much do you want for that plate? Seller: It’s an antique, and it was my grandmother’s. I can’t let it go for less than $100. Me: Well, I … More Negotiation is not lying: The Flea Market Chronicles #negotiation #FleaMarket

So we learn about Esther who is following her cousin Modecai’s plan to ascend to the Queen’s position. Chapter 2 After these things, when the wrath of King Ahasuerus subsided, … More Another look at Esther
Self-Abandonment. When I first came across this term in the book Complex PTSD by Pete Walker, a huge light bulb lit over my head. That’s what it is– the feeling of disconnect from people, family, God, friends, and even myself. When someone is constantly criticized, they see themselves as unloveable and at some point “detach” … More The Orphan Spirit – part 4
My original post about the Orphan Spirit is popular. I didn’t write most of the information there; I included articles by other authors and included their names and websites. I had two revelations this week that I will share. I find that other people go through similar trials. The first is from the book Complex … More The Orphan Spirit part 3
I remember this headline. We always read The Daily News at our house. I remember reading the article which told of a woman attacked and raped in Central Park. One sentence etched upon my mind: “when she cried out for help, one of the men said ‘Shut up bitch’ and hit her in the face … More #FakeNews isn’t new #CentralParkFive #Netflix
“Whether a person is pro-life or pro-choice, no one should think it’s okay for an abortionist to conduct a surgical abortion in an ill-equipped abortion facility on a woman whose risk factors contraindicate outpatient surgery. No one should think it’s okay for an abortion facility to fail to follow up with a woman suffering complications … More Abortion is supposed to be SAFE and legal. So why isn’t it?
Preamble: Forgive my rhyme and meter For it has been so long Since I have been in college; I hope that it’s not wrong. *** It must have taken decades for James Strong to find the words to help our understanding and tell us what we heard to research Greek and Hebrew and some … More An ode to Mr. Strong #thursdaythoughts
