Are You Root Bound?

I have a plant that has not been looking too good lately. My husband suggested it might be root bound. Those of you who have potted plants are probably familiar with this phrase. For those who are not… When a plant is “root bound” it means that the life giving roots of the plant have…

I’m in a hurry and don’t know why

I heard this song on the radio the other day and knew it had to be a blog topic. Alabama: “I’m in a hurry to get things done.” How many of us are “in a hurry to get things done” or “rush and rush until life’s no fun” and even are “in a hurry and…

What is GOOD Friday?

Isn’t every Friday “good”? For many of us, it’s the end of the work week as we look forward to the weekend. While that is true, Good Friday comes only once a year. If you are of the Christian faith, or are familiar with it, you will know that Good Friday comes just before Easter…

Financial mistake in your favor, what would you do?

We must have hope

Our church (don’t leave me now, hope is relevant to everyone!) is going through a series about telling your story. The theory being that the things you have done, or have happened to you have brought you to the place you are, and there are probably people who could benefit from knowing your experiences and…

Things we wish we knew when we were younger

Last night I heard a speaker talking about things they wished they knew when they were younger. It got me thinking. Have you ever pondered that statement? Are there things you wish you had done differently? Would you go back and change some things, if you could? As I thought about it a few things…

Why am I still eating?

A few months ago, someone was telling me about how the food industry does research to discover the flavors our bodies (or minds) can’t seem to get enough of. Food manufacturer’s seem to create their foods to have scents and tastes that trigger our brains to just keep eating because it smells/tastes soooo good. I…
