We've all been there. (Whether we admit it or not.) Someone cuts you off in traffic. Or you get stuck behind the person who thinks the speed limit is a friendly suggestion, as they proceed to drive 20 miles an hour below it. Getting angry about it just ain't worth it! You see the news … Continue reading Anger Management

Busting my chops
I just love how my brain makes connections between things. It gives me ideas for these posts. I also love how a single phrase can have more than one meaning. In a recent message, my pastor told us how you can remember the order of the small epistles in the Bible. Gentiles Eat Pork Chops, … Continue reading Busting my chops
Just to let you know up front, this is NOT a story from the ranch! Thanks be to God I have never been in close proximity to a rattlesnake, nor do I plan to be in the future. If you are bitten by a snake, they pump their venom into you through their fangs. It … Continue reading Antivenom
Holier than thou
I get so much from old Western TV shows and movies that inspire these blog posts. (Culturally outdated, indeed!) The latest one, featured a wagon train of approx. 300 people traveling to California. A husband and wife join up with the train part way through the trip. When some of the women on said train … Continue reading Holier than thou
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
Ask for it!

What’s in a name?
Welcome to the one post that will change the way you look at your life forever! (I hope!) I recently finished a women's Bible study, with some beautiful sisters, entitled Exploring the Mystery Within. One of our first homework assignment was to make a list of five things we could declare about who we are. … Continue reading What’s in a name?
Joy of Dogs
At the end of my blog posts, you can see I named my publishing company Fluffy Puppy Publishing. Why? What does a fluffy puppy do? It scampers and romps and just generally acts too cute! How does that effect us? It triggers the part of the brain that goes awww and awe. Because who doesn't … Continue reading Joy of Dogs
Revolution of the Squishy Grape
September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. It is very serious and my prayer is that everyone does what they can to save lives. No matter how simple a gesture, it might just be the thing that saves a life. From my lips to God's ears! Back in the last millennium, when I was a teenager, … Continue reading Revolution of the Squishy Grape
All Hat No Cattle
This is a saying in the American West which describes a person who is all talk and no follow through. They are unable to back up their words with actions. Just because you are wearing a cowboy hat, it doesn't make you a cowboy. Or just because you are wearing a cowboy hat does not … Continue reading All Hat No Cattle
