The Big Break Update

It wasn't you - it was me. 🙂 After more than a year's break from blogging, I may actually be back. I'm still mostly off of social media as I rarely go on and am quite silent when I do... a ghost tip-toeing through the pages, usually ending my perusal with groans and head in... Continue Reading →

Anxiety Buster: Time to Think

How do you spend/invest your time? Who do you spend your time with? Do you have any guilt over your answers? I think our personality types play into how we answer these questions. For me, as an INFJ, I struggle with what I have to do versus what I need to do. In my list... Continue Reading →

Speaking your truth

In my research into hypothyroidism, I came across the Hindu teachings about chakras.

Renewed: Day 32, Redemption

"...those lessons were costly. And the church - have they learned anything from this?

It's out of my hands now.  God, I want to believe nothing is wasted with you. But what was the purpose... Continue Reading →

Renewed: Day 27,Worship

"...when I've spent the week weeping over the broken relationships and strife we seem unable to overcome, on Sunday mornings it's hard to worship." (Renewed, Leigh Powers, pg 111) This describes my battle most Sundays since September of last year. Once you know that your congregation has people in it who don't want your husband...
