I don’t play well with others. Well, I guess better said, I am not a team player. Or something along those lines.
When I was a kid I liked playing with my friends one on one. When more people were added to the dynamic, things changed. There were inside jokes I didn’t get, talk of TV [...]

Websters defines a habit as, “a settled tendency or usual manner of behavior.” When I think of what a habit is it first takes on a negative connotation in my mind. A habit is something to break, something you are a slave to.  Like that pot of coffee in the morning that you just [...]

I am going to need a new camera soon. My current digital one is almost 5 years old and has moved into the “eating batteries for lunch” stage of it’s life. It’s not the charger, or the batteries. These things do happen. Now, here’s where it gets tricky. Of course, I would love a digi [...]

I suppose my elation over over the commencement of springtime is more than obvious. Today I was absolutely singing as I wiped the ickyness off my siding and porch roof (or at least what I could reach!) Just being outside and soaking in the sun just has me singing praises.

I can see my girls growing, changing, stretching right before my very eyes. And it’s freaking me out a bit. Of course they have to change.

“Be at rest, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.” Ps. 116:7 NIV
I love this verse. It’s become my motto or tag line I guess. My life verse. So often I sit and just worry about what’s to come or if I’ve made the right decisions. I bring myself to nausea [...]

As my hubby and I approach new years (26 for Craig, 25 for me) I’m trying to figure out why my skin is breaking out like I’m 14.
Diet changes? No. New Soap? Nopers. More exercise? Same routine for the past few months now.
Stress??? Ooooh that must be it.
It’s truly the only thing that I can [...]

Romans 12:15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep… 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
It’s scary to me when I’m faced with a choice on how to conduct my own actions. The verses where Paul wrote, ” what I want to do I don’t do, [...]
