This blog site is not your normal Christian blog.

I’m going to write about things we never talk about in our Sunday school classes or women’s Bible study groups. I will discuss your “little secrets,” imperfections, scars and pain. The things you may be ashamed for anyone to know about. Things you weren’t the only one to endure.

I pray you will be encouraged by reading my blog and hope you will visit often.

Giving Wisely

The truth is – you can’t be giving to everyone. Some people, not everyone, but some people as the old saying goes “if you give them an inch they will take a mile.” It makes giving complicated and it shouldn’t. We should be able to help others out of love believing they receive it with…

Estranged Daughter (ED)

Tomorrow my ED will be 36. I remember finding out I was pregnant just six months after having her sister. I was so confused and to be honest depressed. I knew their father was a mess. I knew by now he was not willing or able to take care of a family. I knew without…

Pasta Pieces

Earlier I put on some angel hair pasta. My Atlanta grand babies were coming to visit and they love my angel hair pasta and Alfredo sauce. I had bought the new pot size box of angel hair pasta and I was excited. I turned the water on to boil and when it finally heated up…

Living Jesus

Today, I saw a deer lying on the side of the road who had been hit by a car and left to die.  There have been times that I have felt like a deer hit by a car and left for dead. Left to be pecked apart by vulchers. Usually, and unfortunately those vulchers are…

Life Decisions

When I was twenty one years old I was facing the most difficult decision I personally had ever made. While discussing it with someone older and wiser than me and I remember them telling me “One day you will look back and realize this will not be the biggest decision of your life.” They were…

Faithful and True

Tonight I am thankful that the God I serve does not stop loving you because you become old. He does not stop caring about you because of the size of your bank account. He does not stop withholding his love because of the color of your skin or your educational background. My God doesn’t care…

Sowing & Reaping

I planted these Zinnias from seed early June. I am finally seeing my first bloom. I also planted some daisies, but have yet to see any possibility of buds. I will, like my Heavenly Father, keep watching and doing everything I can to encourage production. Sowing and reaping still amazes me! I am thankful I…

God Crazy

I am not crazy like the world considers or defines crazy, but I am conflicted and fighting a truly real spiritual warfare battle. It rages wildly and strongly.  The desire of the enemy is to destroy me and you. He desires to kill our spirit, to keep us from praying. He desires to discourage us…

Without Him

I have failed God more times than I can count, but HE has never failed me. I have wallowed in self pity and doubt. I have been disobedient and willful. Demanded my own way. Selfish and ungrateful.  Downright foolish and arrogant many times. Knowing I was wrong, knowing I needed help, but refusing to change.…
