Race Relations

I recently saw a documentary about race relations. It was predominantly about the relationship between police officers and African-American men. Both groups acknowledged the problem and offered reasons that they exist, but few solutions were offered on how to change things for the better. I suppose there are decades of past problems that continue to […]

Control your thoughts

I happened upon a video this morning about how your thoughts control your feelings. I thought it made such a good point that I was going to be lazy and just post the video link in this week’s blog and get on with my day. BUT after the very good point came a very strong […]

Music and emotion

People enjoy all different kinds of music. Many of us change our preferred music as we go through the changes of life. Personally, I was into Rock & Roll, then Disco, then Pop, then Country, and now Contemporary Christian music. I never had any interest in Grunge, Punk, Rap, or Heavy Metal. I know there […]

When you open up

While volunteering at church, recently, I was almost brought to tears by a young man who shared just a brief snippet of his story. He hadn’t been to church in about 19 years and was compelled to attend that day. He was so excited about what he had heard that he was suddenly “all in.” […]

It’s all in the perspective

What do you see when you look at this picture. A student handed this to me and asked me to cut it out for him. Shortly after, another student asked if he could have a mustache, too. I was surprised at the question. I had actually thought this was angel’s wings. Interesting. When I asked […]

It’s great to be awake!

In this chaotic world, it sometimes takes the words of a child to get your perspective back on track. “It’s great to be awake!” On a recent trip to visit family, our youngest granddaughter stayed overnight in the hotel with us. She had told me she loved to wake up in the morning and see […]

Everybody’s Busy

Oh, my goodness! It’s after noon on Friday and I haven’t posted my weekly blog yet! To be honest, I haven’t even written it yet. My week has been straight out busy and it slipped my mind. Can you imagine? Of course you can, everybody can relate to being busy. Am I in a panic? […]

Have a Great Day!

I happened to be sitting in a local waiting room when two other people started discussing parting phrases. Imagine my surprise when they both stated they couldn’t stand it when people said, “Have a Great Day!” That’s one of the things I say to people. I would never imagine that people would find it offensive. […]

Housecleaning

As I was cleaning my house this week, I was reminded that if I were ever financially wealthy I would have a maid and a cook (and maybe a personal trainer). Then I remembered, I’m wealthy in other ways. I absolutely love my family and am loved in return. So, while I was mumbling under […]

A Rude Awakening

Today is the first day I’ve had, in a number of days, to “sleep in.” I went to bed last night with great anticipation of catching up on some well-deserved sleep. I was just rolling over and resettling for the extra sleep when I realized why I had such a rude awakening in the first […]
