He is Risen

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Below are the words to the song “He is Risen.” I thought it quite appropriate for this week’s blog. If you or someone you know is in need of prayer, please let me know in the comment section below, and I’ll be happy to pray for the situation. He Is Risen!  He is risen! He is risen! Tell it out with joyful voice. He has burst his …

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 …

Bad Character in Time

Quite FYI: One Last Breath is now on sale for $0.99 on Amazon. http://amzn.to/2ipGxGg  Now on to the blog.   Bad Character in Time Which is worse? A female teacher who takes a partially nude photograph or the boyfriend (another teacher) who releases said picture once she’s left him? How about said female or the principal who allowed other male teachers in the same school to view this photo before confronting her? That’s what happened to …

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

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 …

God’s Pets

Animals. Some become pets. Some food. Some we just enjoy watching. So why is it so many people harm these wonderful creatures? There are those who hunt rhinoceros and elephants for ivory. Those who kill baby seals for their coats. And those who abuse dogs and cats. Gretchen Sandy Bain, a beloved companion for over 10 years. Still sorely missed. And how does God feel about this? Psalm 50:10-11, it states, for every animal of …

Who’s the Star in Your Show?

Jacksonville is preparing elections for city council in March. Some of the names I didn’t know, so I always look up the people running to see their views on issues. I’m not one to vote for the R or the D behind the name. I vote for people, not political parties. One of the people running is a man named Chad Evan McIntyre. Each person running was asked what they’d like to be remembered for …

When You Feel Like Job

Today I am happy to have very special guest Kathleen Neely to my blog. Please enjoy, and I’ll be back next week. When You Feel Like Job Have you ever had that season in life when everything starts to fall apart at the same time? My season came when a foot injury interrupted my paid-in-full-non-refundable writers’ conference. That occurred immediately after losing a book contract when the publishing company folded. I couldn’t sleep as I …

The Value of Life

Another five people were killed in Illinois this past week. It is sad how so many care so little for the sanctity of life. Then we have the abortion issue. Several states are adding to their laws. Funny how the latter issue gets more attention from Christians. As you can see, a ban on assault rifles did little to stop mass shootings. More must be done. All over social media, I saw posts about the …
