Finding Contenment in Trials II

There is something I'm just not getting. I haven't quite figured it out yet, but the fact I know I'm not getting something seems to be forward progress.

Delight Yourself in the Lord

For the last year I've been struggling with my writing. Between life getting in the way and the loss of  my awesome critique partners due to their lives getting in the way of their writing, I've been floundering. Finding a new critique group has taken a few adjustments and getting used to. Their styles vary … Continue reading Delight Yourself in the Lord

God and Social Media

Don't tell me God can't use platforms like Facebook.

Sunday Clash of Personalities

Way back when, when hubs and I first came to the Lord, it never seemed to fail that we'd clash. You see, he was very zealous for the Lord (still is), especially on Sunday mornings. Not a bad thing at all. In fact, it is one of those things I absolutely love about him. On most … Continue reading Sunday Clash of Personalities
