Progress Over Achievements

Hustle over here, hustle over there, get a side hustle. Hustle. Hustle.  When will it ever be enough?  Covid forced our lives to come to a screeching halt.  Many of us didn’t want to do anything but snack and take naps.  As places begin to open up and many go back to work, the hustle … Continue reading Progress Over Achievements

Scared to Walk Alone

My daughter and I left a Target and walked to the car. She wanted to take a picture of something. I watched her take the picture, and then we got into our vehicle. I told her, “If you are with friends or alone, please be careful not to get distracted. If you happen to have … Continue reading Scared to Walk Alone

Hope in the Eternal

According to the world, power and control, material possessions, relationships/friendships, a career, physical beauty are supposed to bring us happiness. If I had this thing or that person, my life would be better. There may be fleeting moments of bliss with these things we collect or pursue, but nothing will bring hope or joy like … Continue reading Hope in the Eternal

Don’t Cheapen Yourself!

I saw this Instagram post from @thefemalewarhol. This quote shot me right through the heart. Many times when we feel lonely, we devalue our worth to be noticed. This can happen with a romantic interest, at work, with friends, or in a family dynamic. Friend, it isn't worth it. May your eyes open and see … Continue reading Don’t Cheapen Yourself!

Take a Moment to See How Far You’ve Come

A couple of months ago, I bit down on a Werther's Original Chewy Caramel and my entire dental bridge came out. At that moment, my mind became anxious and started to run with the scenarios of major dental work and cost. And for those who know me well, know how much I hate dental work.  … Continue reading Take a Moment to See How Far You’ve Come

It is Never a Good Time to Worry

I read a devotional this morning on the Bible app, You Version. The study is entitled, “How to Stop Worrying.” The devotion defined worry as to torment oneself with cares and anxieties. As I read that definition, it felt like a 2x4 to the face. Everyone has thoughts on the things that most concern them. … Continue reading It is Never a Good Time to Worry

In These Times of Great Anxiety

Credit: Artist-David Bowman At the beginning of March, I read an article about people hoarding toilet paper and paper towels due to the Covid-19 outbreak. The virus had not reached The States quite yet. I decided to prepare for it during my scheduled monthly trip to Costco. I arrived at Costco at their opening time … Continue reading In These Times of Great Anxiety

Grateful for the Life You Have

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  1 Thessalonians 5:18 This week has been a whammy.  Daylight saving time, full moon, Friday the 13th, extra workload, Corona Virus fears, and pandemonium, and my child and I had our heads invaded by lice.  (Cue Scratching.) The physical and … Continue reading Grateful for the Life You Have

Uncover Your Faith

Today, I saw a feature on a television program about Reverend Dr. Lakeesha Walrond.  She became the first woman president of the New York Theological Seminary.  The feature story contained her recollection of when she heard her calling in the church, her plans for her presidency and how she endured sexual molestation at the age … Continue reading Uncover Your Faith

Everyone’s Journey is Different

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not … Continue reading Everyone’s Journey is Different
