Resentment Release Day: April 21, 2020

The stubborn resistance in me is palpable. I know that I know that I know that I need to write this down, but my insides are squirming because, well, you’ll see. I don’t think it has taken me this long to view this situation from this perspective because it wasn’t obvious before now. It tookContinue reading “Resentment Release Day: April 21, 2020”

“Gimme some-whole-ness”

It’s probably not a coincidence that I came up with an idea to write a blog on “unwholesome talk” while I was running (or trying to run) on a treadmill. Remember how in my book I talk about how the doctors made a note on my medical chart that says “she runs marathons”? Well, IContinue reading ““Gimme some-whole-ness””

A huge mistake! (Followed by “God is my refuge”)

I have been reading through my book to collect quotes for my Soul-Selfettes (posted on Instagram and FB in between full blog posts). And it happened, one of my worst fears came true. I found a HUGE mistake! I haven’t actually read my book in book form yet because I was afraid of this exactContinue reading “A huge mistake! (Followed by “God is my refuge”)”

Jesus’ “birthday month”

I have a dear friend whose husband celebrates (and semi-requires his family to celebrate) his birthday, not just on his special day, but all month long. “His birthday month starts today,” my friend will inform me. It’s a busy time for everyone involved. Even though other activities occur out of necessity during that month, thereContinue reading “Jesus’ “birthday month””

Turbo resentments

I am a spontaneous person. That is sometimes good. Sometimes not so good. When I write, it is a little of both. As a general rule, I sit on my couch in the morning, praying and reading and listening to what God is directing me to write about. It is usually more than obvious. OnceContinue reading “Turbo resentments”

“Stepping In It”

As long as I live I will never run out of material to write about because doggonit–I just keep “stepping in it.” I guess I can view it as “job security.” Every once in awhile, though, I pleasantly surprise myself by being aware of what I stepped in before God has to use a bullhorn.Continue reading ““Stepping In It””

“That’s Gonna Leave a Mark”

I just can’t stop thinking about mark. Or, more accurately, a mark. It started while listening to my iPod on my flight to Las Vegas. The band U2 was blasting the song “Magnificent” in my ears while Bono sang “Only love, only love can leave such a mark.” My schizophrenic mind then pulled up otherContinue reading ““That’s Gonna Leave a Mark””

“Eat This, Not That”

A few years ago a diet book came out called “Eat This, Not That”. Pretty self-explanatory. I think it would be hard to write an entire book outlining what should be common sense. Do we really need hard evidence that we should eat Strawberries (“this”), not Strawberry flavored ice cream (“that”) or baked potatoes (“this”),Continue reading ““Eat This, Not That””

There But For the Grace Of God…

A couple of days ago my husband and I had the opportunity to be on a panel designed to encourage and support caregivers of cancer patients. This July will mark 2 years from when I finished my Chemo treatments for Leukemia. What a perfect way to “remember” all we have been through and how farContinue reading “There But For the Grace Of God…”
