Risking Pain for Love

Love is a risky. To love another deeply. Is inviting pain. You cannot have one without the other. The bite of death will deliver its poison sooner or later. But, regardless of that risk, we were made to love. We have given a piece of us away, never to return to us. In the movie […]

Consequences of Life

I have this belief that for every choice we make, there is a consequence of some nature, in big or small or good or bad. Some choices we make, are obvious as to what the consequence or outcome will be, and some choices, we do not think or care to think about what is coming […]

The Sexoligist – Not Rated

Sex. Is taboo in the world of christian women. Which, given that our society we live in sells sex in large quantities so much so we are saturated in it, and not to mention the Bible has an entire book about it, its weird that we aren’t talking about it.  It’s as if we are […]

Finding the Joy in front of my face

I am the type of girl who builds up events and days and weeks into some magnificent un-realistic idea. Then the event and day and week take their turn in my life and the idea is usually shattered by disappointment of un-met expectations. I would be categorized as a dreamer I think. I have been […]

Filing My Greivances in The Right Department

My life consists of husband, 4 children, and a bunch of animals. The one person out of that list who is capable of helping man this house hold ship is not home much. It isn’t because he doesn’t want to be here… He is helping build an up and coming business. And if you have […]

Forget the HAM, let’s have Lasagna!

I think if there was a competition for the States worst communicator complemented by stubbornness, I might be 4th or 5th in the ranking. The Higher winners medals would go to (and I say this lovingly) a few of my immediate family members. I don’t know how many dumb arguments could have been prevented by […]

The Trouble With Prayer Vacations…

The peacefulness of a sleeping human is unlike anything else. You know they aren’t dead but they aren’t really in the realm of where we are standing either. Often times I like to double check everyone before turning my lights out at night. Kissing and asking God to protect them from scary dreams and lures […]

I missed you Grandma

Do you know what I learned from my grandmothers? Nothing. Not one single thing. Except for maybe the fact that they stayed with their husbands till death they parted, and I had a hand written note from one before my wedding. It was filled with marriage wisdom, and I know that the woman had so […]

The Basket Un-Emptied

I gave one of my sons a task of emptying out a small laundry basket of misc. things that came form upstairs. I don’t enjoy doing all these menial tasks myself and plus, they are training to work and they live here to. This particular boy has had a lot of problems in the past […]

I CAN

I am about ready to head up Pick Pocket Molly’s 4th sale. For any of you who do not know what Pick Pocket Molly is, please read at http://pickpocketmolly.com. I have not penned much the last few weeks as I pen in relaxed thought more then stressed. I will start contributing more in the next […]

Watering Compassion

Compassion is the understanding or empathy for the suffering of others. It is regarded as a fundamental part of human love, and a cornerstone of greater social interconnection and humanism. I have difficulty with compassion sometimes. I think the majority of us humans do. I think there are a lot of reasons we find to […]

Powerless

People can be divided into three groups: Those who make things happen Those who watch things happen Those who wonder what’s happening I think I consider myself to be #2 mostly on this list, and sometimes I am number 1 when I organize mockumentories about missing eggs with my entire family over Thanksgiving and we […]

Doctor Patches

I have come up with a new invention for humans to waste time and money on! There are patches for lots of different types of clubs out there, so how about we have patches for what we have survived thru? Instead of people having to ask about our health or knowledge, it could be right […]

Wind Chimes

I love wind chimes. It doesn’t matter if they are hollow pieces of bamboo clinking or strong metal pipes. They are beautiful. They tell me things when I am in the house. I can watch them move or hear them sing and dance. Their only job is to move with the unseen motion of the […]

My Mental Miracle

I have had problems with depression and moodiness for as long as when I was a teenager maybe longer. I never realized I had an issue till I was about 23 years old. When I was at a doctors visit, my blood pressure reading was so bad, they had to re take it just to […]
