Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay Today is March the 1st, 2021. I have been in front of a computer for the better part of a day trying to solve a problem. I did, you know! I solved it. I persevered until I got a satisfactory solution. I realized this about myself sometime ago. I … Continue reading The Sweet Satisfaction of Solving the Problem
I opened my blog today after ignoring it for quite some time. As you well know we've been in a pandemic situation for the last year. This post was written and awaiting publishing just about the time the world freaked out. I was preparing to look 50 in the face boldly and instead got smacked upside … Continue reading As I Looked 50 Boldly in the Face the World Stopped
I know we haven't talked much lately... I'd say I'm sorry about that, but if I was, then I would not have stopped talking... Maybe that makes me a bad person, a bad Christian, a human, honest, I don't even know anymore... I have never stopped believing in You...

My other 2 (soon to be 3) grandchildren were here over the weekend as well with my daughter. Sunday, … Continue reading Lazy Lies
All gone. Those were the words of finality that were expressed today at the loss of my daughter's new pregnancy. This would have been her and her husband's third child. This would have been Babyman and Dr. Evil's new sibling. This would have been my sixth grandbaby. It won't be though, because ... well I don't … Continue reading All Gone
Not every storm produces a rainbow. Not every rain shower yeilds flowers. Sometimes it just rains. Storms come. Floods happen. Rain falls. That's life. Too often we settle for platitudes when we should acknowledge and accept that crap happened. We can learn and grow, or we can keep passing off Pinterest quotes and out of … Continue reading Rainbow Platitudes
You keep going to Facebook, Twitter, other medias. You look to the people to tell you who you are, to approve of who you are. You listen to the voices try to dictate and define you. You search for validation and reason for you, your life, your calling. You wait for a like, a view, an answer. … Continue reading Why Listen to Another?
