He had been reading and writing devotionals since the loss of his daughter 6 years ago. The devotional he re-told went like this… “I was standing in line … More I heard a story once….
Some people just don’t understand how true that statement is. He comes in only needing a toe to complete his “foothold” and then we are gone. He does two things; he runs and ruins your life. He runs your life allowing you to put the letter “I” in that word changing the entire action, tricking … More The Devil made me do it.

.The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture. ‘Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say, ‘There’s Jennifer, she’s a lawyer,’ or ‘That’s Michael, He’s a doctor.’ A small … More From the mouth of babes

A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child’s work. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.

This anxiety is overwhelming- it takes over their minutes – it will take over their hours if allowed- it will even erase full days. They turn their cheek every chance they get- but they know it’s there lurking around the corner and now it has brought fear along too! It has brought fear because they … More Anxiety
I love changing up my theme, it’s a good thing to do and I enjoy playing around with the look of things. However, when I research how to fix it and it repeatedly doesn’t work, and I literally have to stop myself from throwing my tablet across the room, there’s a problem.
Surround yourself with wheat not weeds (Tares). I heed caution in this warning for it can be very deceiving, weeds stand tall but wheat bows down.
The darkness fell upon his face, while the sky turned black and the thunder cracked. His body hanged bloody and broken. He choked on His own blood from his torture by taking our sins among those before us and those yet to come, crying out “Father, Father why have you forsaken me?” Tears find their … More Noon until three, I weep for thee…
“It’s okay to move on.” I kept repeating this to myself as my husband drove us out to Washington township.

I still can’t quite put all the pieces together, but when she walked in with her apron still clean, hair in place and not a stain on her uniform shirt, yet claiming to have had “The worst shift ever in my life”! I had to chuckle. https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/dramatic/ Throwing herself on the sofa like she just finished … More Dramatic should have been her first name.
6:30 So I hit my snooze at 6:30 am, 4 times his morning. That’s a total of thirty-six minutes since each ‘snooze’ is set for nine minutes. 7:06 I reach over hit it for the fifth time and say “Why do I set my alarm for the weekends?” My husband rolls over and says “Babe … More “WHAT??”
Apologize. One of the toughest words we have to learn ‘how to do’. Sure as a kid you can make your bed, learn to cut the grass and complete your chores. Every one of those is an action with a word attached to it. But learning to apologize can be the most difficult action we … More Sorry? Come again?
Chapter 2 Typical Sunday morning at nine a.m. And the mat is pretty full. Soapy front loaders agitating at their best as the dryers softly tumble their contents. I’ve always found it memorizing to watch the clothes swirl around with their vibrant colors or the crisp whites being tossed around like the purest of clouds. … More The Washer chronicles
Glass The calmness of green, the tranquility of blue and pureness of white. Wrapped up with the mystery of the journey of where they came from, what they have been through and how their journey has shaped them. My ever longing to understand how beautiful they come out. Photo: Annette Azar
I already have a few sure, (one removed; but we’ll get to that later) but I don’t have the tattoo that I should, nor does any woman. And let me explain why I said ‘wear’.

“See it? Look harder! Come on you can do it”! It’s dark, a little light filters in from the back but not enough to use as a guide. Frame of mind? Mine. I’m sitting enjoying a bottle of Chanti and tiramisu with the man I love and plan to marry. Yet, our mind frame together … More Frame of mind
