I have been reviewing 2020 to look for moments I can be grateful for. The biggest one has been the connections I've made with others. I have had more meaningful conversations with people over the phone and through emails than in previous years. Folks are happy to talk and we have shared more in a … Continue reading Fingerprints
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
It was like a nightmare and horror movie all rolled into one. It felt like slow motion. I'm desperately climbing out of a dark pit toward the light. I get just to the top and as I claw my way to dry ground, a hand grabs my ankle and tries to pull me back into … Continue reading Hopefully
We are just one week away from celebrating Thanksgiving here in America. I like the idea of a reminder to celebrate thankfulness, but also realize that it is something I need to do every day, not just once a year. So I have been striving to have an attitude of gratitude in 2020, well because … Continue reading Attitude of Gratitude
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
We've all been there and done that. You know, mistake the lyrics of songs. I remember a commercial in 2009 from T-Mobile that had a couple in a car and the guy was singing a song by Def Leppard. He incorrectly sang the lyrics as “pour some shook up ramen.” His wife/girlfriend was able to … Continue reading What?
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
The moment was charged with electricity. Absolutely every head was turned in my direction. All eyes were on me. I could feel it. I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that in that moment, everyone wanted to be me. Why? Because I'm abundantly well-endowed and it shows. Defined, it is someone who has larger … Continue reading Well-endowed
