I have recently been shown how to live in a win-win scenario. It has taken me a few weeks of pondering and using it to come to know they joy that is involved when I do. And it all revolves around the boomerang principle. The first thing that makes a boomerang different from a regular … Continue reading Boomerang
The first six years of our marriage, my husband and I were truck drivers for the moving company Bekins Van Lines. We had a cab over Kenworth semi tractor and owned our own trailer too. As newlyweds, it was quite a learning experience. Our cab had a queen size bed, that you crawled in and … Continue reading Stressors

The television channel proclaims, “for the first time in history, you can watch all 456 episodes of the original Law and Order.” They call it a binge-a-thon. So my husband and I are watching some. There is a common plot theme. A crime is committed, the police find and arrest the bad guy (or gal), … Continue reading Busted!
What am I talking about? Forgiveness. “Then Peter came up and said to him, 'Lord how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?'
