What Station Are You Listening To?

I am an XM radio fan. I love being able to listen to the same station no matter how far I travel away from home. Living out in the country like we do, I can lose my favorite station just by going down the mountain. If I stay on the FM stations I have to […]

I’m Sorry

How many of you remember the ‘70’s movie, Love Story, with Ryan O’Neal and Ali MacGraw? Whether or not you remember that movie you probably remember its most famous line, “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” That line oozed humongous drops of sap and always brought a roll of my eyes. I suppose […]

One Bite at a Time, Please

Back when my hair color stayed dark by itself and my smiling eyes didn’t have two sets of parentheses around them, I stopped making New Year’s resolutions. I learned New Year’s resolutions can be tricky things and failure seemed certain. If you resolve to lose weight because you can’t zip your jeans, but find yourself […]

The 2012 Star

When I am driving I hate to hear that woman in my car say, “Updating route!” I hate it because I know I have taken a wrong turn and what she really wants to say is, “Really? Are you kidding me? I told you to turn ½ a mile ago. Now, just look where you’ve […]

Peace On Earth

I first met Linda about three years ago at the city jail. She brought with her a trunk full of issues. She had been on drugs, been in the car when a policeman was shot and lived a life many of us only witness in the movies. She felt powerless under Satan’s heavy hand and […]

Joy to the World

Do you remember that old deodorant commercial with a guy and his girlfriend at a football game? It opened with her screaming like a bohemian, jumping up and down and rocking her shaker back and forth, while he just stood there dodging her enthusiasm. Then the voiceover said, “Some people react to things twice as […]

A Feeling You Can’t Express

In your mind’s eye picture a favorite Christmas memory, then step inside for a few minutes. What do you see? Who is with you? Do you smell something cooking? Is there music playing? Are there gifts? Now, stand still in your memory and close your eyes. What do you feel? It’s easy to describe people, […]

My Wish Revisited

Here’s that extra post like I promised. God has truly blessed us with a beautiful little granddaughter, Jessa Leigh. She and her two brothers make quite a cute trio. Yes, I am boasting, but that’s my job and I love it! I ran a post titled “My Wish” when we learned a new grandbaby was on the […]

A New Replay Button Please

My mind keeps hitting the replay button on two separate conversations I recently had with two not-so-different women. In our last Bible study at the city jail, one lady making a return visit, explained how she had given her life to the Lord and thought all her troubles would vanish. When they didn’t, she blamed […]
