Should Serving God Make You Miserable?

If the church is Christ’s bride*, how is it that I act like the bridesmaid from hell? (*Controversy on whether Israel or the Church is really the bride referred to in scripture. I am going with the church because it fits my story and as the author, I can sorta do what I want). I […]

A San Diego Charger Cheerleader Made Me Do It

How is it possible that a San Diego Charger cheerleader made me eat a whole pie? Well, okay, she did not MAKE me eat the pie. She did not force it down my throat or hold a pom pom to my head and threaten me with pancake makeup and lip liner to get me to […]

Oh Yes, The Pie Will Be Mine

I was given the gift of a pie last night. I love pie. I have blogged about pie. I will do pretty much anything for a piece of pie. When I am upset, pie makes it all better. When I have an important decision to make, pie makes it easier to decide.  If I wasn’t […]

Forgive and Be Forgiven: I Hurt People Too

I’m learning a new lesson in forgiveness this week.  Nine years ago today my best friend Patricia walked away from our friendship.  No call, no note, nothing to explain her sudden departure.  Dan and I were engaged and Patricia was to be my Maid of Honor.  We were scheduled to go shopping and hopefully find […]

I Have An Inkling – Part II

“ No one discovers their passion, it is built on an inkling”. Marcus Buckingham Since Perryann was 7 I have signed her up for every sport or activity that I thought she might enjoy.  All of it in an effort to find her “passion”, that thing she would love to do.  I encouraged her to […]

I Need Accountability

When I think about God’s blessings I can honestly say that I feel “blessed”.  I have never wanted for too much in my life.  I am not hungry.  My family is healthy.  My bills are paid.  My gas tank is full.  I have the freedom to choose, to come and go as I please and […]

I Grow Hair Like A Man

When I was in my third year of college, I worked on campus in the Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Department. The department Secretary was a woman in her 50’s named Pat Bernard. She was a secretary’s secretary. Pat was confident, sure of herself and of her secretarial abilities. She stood tall, her bleach blond pseudo […]

Part IV-Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

Do you know about the five love languages? If yes, I am words of affirmation. If no, go here then come back, I’ll wait. I receive love with words.  Quality time-nah.  Physical touch-nope (sorry honey).  Acts of service or gifts-yeah, no. Words. I can be made or broken with a single phrase. So it makes […]

Part III-The Prequel: Great, Now I Have To Find A New Chiropractor

“You don’t believe God loves you, do you”? “What”? “You don’t believe God loves you, do you”?  (Pause)  “Of course, I do…yes, I do”. Really?  “Why are you looking at me like that? (Pause) I believe God loves me…I do.” Freak! Was my first thought after the uncomfortable exchange with my Chiropractor, Dr. Lundgren.  My […]
