We have all lived it. We have all been on the receiving end of it. Jealousy, the green-eyed monster. A feeling of envy, especially of a rival. It is also defined as covetousness. Which is the tenth of the Ten Commandments. In my last post I promised the rest of the story behind David's older … Continue reading Green-eyed Monster
Now that's a super hero, Wolverine from the Marvel Comics X-Men. For those of you who don't know the story behind the hero, here it is. James Howlett was born in Alberta, Canada, in the late 1880s, as the son of wealthy farm owners John and Elizabeth Howlett, though he is actually the illegitimate son … Continue reading Wolverine
I'm sure you can agree. Some mornings you are slower to wake up than others. Well, as I was waiting for the coffee to brew, I started my water for oatmeal. My husband suggested putting in a pat of butter to make it savory. So I did. Then the physics lesson in thermodynamics began. (I … Continue reading I’m melted butter
I remember when I had to suffer through this. New Math. It was taught during the 1950's—1970's. It was supposed to be a dramatic change in the way math was taught, emphasizing “discovery learning.” Students worked in groups to invent theories about the problems posed in the textbooks.

A carbon offset, sometimes called a carbon credit, refers to paying someone else to reduce their carbon emissions or increase their carbon sequestration (as in by planting trees) in order to offset your own carbon … Continue reading I’m going to make Millions!
In my efforts to be more mindful to express gratitude daily, I realized that sometimes it is the simple pleasures that brings us to a place of thankfulness. Like the way my mouth feels after brushing my teeth. A warm bed. The first cup of coffee in the morning. Vanilla lip balm. Cocoa butter lotion. … Continue reading Flames
Have you heard me laughing out loud lately? Well I have, big deep belly laughs. I fully believe God laughs right along with us when we are awake enough to spot His humor in our lives. It all started with some “random coincidences,”— occurrences strung together for no apparent reason. Recently my favorite coffee mug … Continue reading Coincidence?
About two years ago I awoke in the middle of the night to 3:16. Not sure what 3:16 verse, so after careful consideration, I determined I needed to look up and write down each and every 3:16 verse in the Bible. It was a very eye opening self-study. Recently I've become friends with Kamryn Adams, … Continue reading Details
I know that is a pretty sad looking picture of a chicken with this post but, “There is a time for everything and a season for every activity.” (Ecc. 3:1 [NIV]) This is molting season. I learn so many lessons about God at my ranch, so I am going to share one with you now. … Continue reading Molting Season
Today we're going to start with a little time travel, all the way back to last millennium. I recall the moment exactly. (Full disclosure, I'm a bit of a nerd.) I was in 7th grade. I was sitting at the desk in my bedroom doing homework, math homework, to be specific. I had an epiphany, … Continue reading Defined
