November 2017 – December 2018

It’s the time of year where we look back and look forward… (And up) Where was I a year ago… Less confident… I would have been described as very passive and now I’m more assertive… Which might not seem a big deal to many but it’s huge step for me… It means I’m starting to …

Integrety and Chocolates

I reason it this way, for a healthy diet we are supposed to eat something from all of the food groups. Fruit comes from a plant. Cocoa comes from a plant therefore I can rationalize the chocolate is actually a fruit or vegetable and eating it means I’m eating healthy right? That’s what I would …

I’m Not Wishing You A Happy New Year

I’m not going to wish you a Happy New Year…  I’m going to say get out there and at least try… Challenge yourself… If you have the ability to be reading this blog posting you have already shown you have the ability to change even just 1 thing…. Maybe have a shower (for those who …

Love Fulfills

In Philemon Paul talks about Onesimus who needs to be accepted after he had fallen out of grace… Philemon is challenged by Paul to set an example both as a man and brother in Christ…  And then Paul lightens the atmosphere he …

Love Hugs

Christmas and Easter are my most cherished times of the year…  Family get togethers….  Celebrating the polar opposites of love… One a birth, the other a death… Each a spectacular showing of God’s love far greater than we think is possible… We know there are several types of love by the circumstances and audience…  Holding …

Crazy Thoughts…

When I was at the beginning of dealing with my full on mental health crisis it was suggested (over and over) to change my thoughts… Think different…  So, answer me this… If I tell you to NOT think of a white elephant the reality is you can’t stop thinking about it… That’s an example of …
