God’s Blessings on Others

We were created to live a particular life God set out for us. Only He knows the beginning, middle, and end. Each of us has different gifts and receives different blessings. All of which are up to God. So why the difference? Maybe God has given that Bible study woman a strong knowledge of verses while you don’t recall them as well. Could it be so she can spend three years in Africa teaching while …

Are You an Innie or an Outie?

We just had the Ms. USA and Ms. Teen pageants. I don’t watch them myself, but others seem to enjoy them. I always found it amazing how beautiful these women were, some through a doctor’s work and a lot of makeup. But these women are also very smart. Something they don’t really show in these competitions. They make it more about looks. It would be great if instead of just looking on the outside, we …

What You See

My twenty-five-year-old daughter has been wearing glasses since she was eight so she decided to get Lasik surgery. She was amazed at how nice it was to be able to see when she got up the next morning. No more searching for her glasses. She was also excited that she could tell the difference between the shampoo and conditioner in the shower. White House Garden in May 2018 On the way home from the surgery, …

Night and Day

Over the weekend, I had two contractors come to my house. One gave me a quote on a countertop for a divider wall, the other for windows. They were both from the same home improvement company but were as different as night and day. The first one was very condescending. I guess because I was a woman, he didn’t think I knew anything about countertops. After he explained something, he’d say, “you understand?” and then …

The Funny Side of Life

Have you ever had one of those days you were on remote control? Doing the same old thing, nothing exciting going on, everything just mediocre then out of the blue, God jolts you with something funny? It might come from a humorous meme on Facebook, or like me the other day, at the bank. The woman in the drive-thru in front of me was talking on her phone. She was so distracted, she forgot to …

TV And Faith

I’m not a big fan of many current television shows. In fact, I’ve been enjoying old reruns of things like Numbers and The Closer. The only two current shows I make of point of catching are The Big Bang Theory and Last Man Standing. Three stars of Last Man Standing Most shows have gotten too political and immoral for me to care to watch. I know any woman in a cop show will probably end …

Playing Politics with Murder

The death toll has risen to fifty in the New Zealand’s mosque shootings. Such a terrible tragedy, no matter your belief. Unfortunately, there are those who choose to turn this into a political agenda instead of giving sympathy for those who lost loved ones. Please pray for those who lost loved ones. When the news broke, several commentators blamed President Trump, claiming his hate caused the massacre. Then there were those students who blamed Chelsea …
