My sick humor #2

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a … More My sick humor #2

Earth day

This photo has always been a favorite of mine to share on earth day. But as I looked at it this morning something new was shown to me. The hands aren’t just hands of a human that were painted beautifully by an artist. Today I saw them as Gods hands. Holding our precious earth when … More Earth day

The Rope Ladder.

As I stumble (and I use that word loosely seeing as it’s the truth) through my walk of Christianity, I’ve come to realize we all receive crutches to help us along the way. Some people were given scaffoldings, others were given those handy-dandy window-washing pole-fed machines, and some were even given a staircase. Not me. … More The Rope Ladder.

Our thirteen year old..

My husband: ”Hi Joe, how was school?” Joey: ”Fine” Husband: ”Did you learn anything new?” Joey: ”No” Husband: ”Really? Nothing at all huh?” Joey: ”No, I’ve been trying to explain this to you for years!”


It will take you further than you wanted to go….. Stay longer than you wanted to….. And cost you more than you wanted to pay…… Was it worth it?


Good Friday’s email was powerful with the question of “what are you going to lay your life down for? And he continues to say “until we answer this question; we’re not really living”. Best Lent Ever | Lent Reflections 2018 | Good Friday | Dynamic Catholic — Read on

The opportunity clock.

So during this Lenten season, I’ve been listening to The Dynamic Catholic ‘Best lent ever’ series. I’m a Christian but it’s the same thing in its teachings, being the best version of yourself. So far I have really enjoyed listening to the 5-7 minute videos daily. You can read or watch them, I prefer listening … More The opportunity clock.

The chat…

I’m sitting enjoying a glass of white wine while my husband has his IPA; discussing our Sunday plans (which usually consist of church, day plans, and what I would like for dinner). I start to complain about “these stupid kids eating soap pods have made it almost impossible for me to open my Gain tub … More The chat…

Watch. I live through art; I have zero talent but I was gifted with creativity, {writing mainly}. But the gift that God has given to others amazes me on a an hourly basis. I shared a while ago a dance piece showing the power of addiction. This is a piece which my younger sister shared … More Watch.


Husband: “Waiter this coleslaw smells strong and taste sour, could they make us some fresh ones please?” Waiter: “Sorry ’bout that, but we only make fresh coleslaw on Sunday.” Husband to waiter: “What day is it?” Waiter : “Saturday” Husband: “We’ll take to side salads with oil and vinegar.”


I read a statistic today that listed the fact that a person receives 120 hours of criticism each year of their life, compared to 20 minutes of praise. How does this fact make you want to change? It made me want to change the world, one kind word at a time.

The first testicular guard, the “Cup,” was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took a hundred years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

Just sayin’ 71

I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.


Whenever I see two swans I am reminded of how elegant and beautiful love can be. But then I see a single swan, and I am saddened by the reminder that this elegant species mate for life. Now; they have lost their love and will continue missing them until they themselves pass. Love is beautiful. … More Love

Stinkin’ thinkin’

We all have that day when we are knocked down with bad thinking, grumpiness, crabbiness, moodiness, call it what you want; you know what I’m talking about. You’re basically stuck, rolling around like a pig in the mud. Only you’re not a pig, you’re a human. And for the most part, we don’t enjoy rolling … More Stinkin’ thinkin’
