Why do we blog?

Blogging serves different purposes. Some people blog to connect with others about mutual interests, or earn extra income and others write as a release or therapy. While all that is true, basically we blog to share. My own personal reasons have changed over the past few years. At first, blogging served as a platform to…

Repurposing

The featured image is not my own, but a great idea. Visit the site, there are many ways to re-purpose your old items. Pinterest is also a good site with never ending repurposing and creative projects. My tiled fountain leaked, so it was placed outside for the winter.   I decided not to plant tomatoes…

Odd love between a kitten and dog

A friend gladly gave me a kitten to keep my fur baby Bella company. I didn’t know how well she would take to a new family member but it was worth a try. I felt bad about having to leave her for eleven hours four days a week. Leaving the television on with endless Lassie…

Grace

When going through something painful, thoughts and emotions in art form could resemble a child’s scribbles. Grace is needed, but are we willing to give what we want for ourselves to those who have wounded us? I can’t feel your heartache but have felt the pain of betrayal and many other things. Though we type…

Therapy

Taking an extra day off from work was beneficial to both my body and spirit, I needed it. Today was the best, the weather was mild and a light rain came this evening. I find that when in a funk staying busy helps.  I picked up paint, a wall transfer and other things today and…

Run the Other Way

Whatever depression does to you, maybe running in the other direction will help. I guess it depends on the reason for being depressed and your personality. My plan included lots of alcohol, salty snacks and the Gilmore Girls, XD .  Instead I cleaned my apartment, went shopping and had lunch with Pam.  I was not…

Are You Okay?

At work I am usually chatty and a bit of a cut-up, so when Lou passed me and ask if I was okay, I nodded yes.  A few minutes later Mel called my name and asked the same, again I nodded. A while later another coworker questioned, “Are you okay?”  I said, “You’re the third…

Friends

Only have a couple of things to say. The first is, pay attention to where an individual spends time and money and you’ll know where their heart is. The second is, if it doesn’t agree with the word of God, its not God. The Creator can use whoever or whatever to reach us whenever He…

When Your Body Freaks on You

I’ve never been allergic to much of anything. How in the world can we go our entire lives allergy free and then suddenly our bodies start freaking out?  I’ve noticed my body reacting to pollen the past of couple of summers, something else not experienced in past years.   In the last two months large…

Simple Pleasures

When I was growing up Brownie and Polaroid cameras were common. Now we are fortunate to have cell phones to snap pictures at a moments notice. As I have mentioned before, bargain shopping is almost a hobby to me. A few weeks ago I was in a nearby town searching for treasures when I spotted…

Peace, Love and Healing, part 2

Because I will switch from quoting the book back to commenting, book quotes will be in bold type. Peace, Love and Healing is a book written by Dr. B. Siegel. The first miracle I shared was Evy McDonald’s, you can read her testimony about healing through body/mind conditioning by clicking on her name above. Dr….

Caleb, My Talented Grandson

This is my grandson Caleb ❤  he enjoys playing the french horn, piano and guitar. Before he was born his mom asked me what she should name him, I suggested Caleb from the Bible. Caleb, or COLEV as pronounced in Hebrew means: whole hearted. He is a quiet young man who is thoughtful and intelligent. Last…
