Exiting the Roller-coaster

I am living life on a roller-coaster that isn’t showing any signs of  slowing down. I have lived life at this fast speed before, and it is not my favorite thing to do. But I find that when I live in these moments, God makes me able.  But when the craziness and chaos subsides, I…

Sometimes, Sorrow

Break my heart for what breaks Yours…. That phrase has been in my head for a few days now as I do what it takes to process a dear family losing a three year old daughter. As unable as I am to do this well,I cannot even fathom how the family and little friends of…

How’s Your Legacy Looking?

If it’s anything like mine, it is in shambles. But as you get old(er) you start to get reminded regularly (thank you, God) that it is important to get it in presentable shape. I have no legacy that I care to pass on at this point?  I feel like what is known about my life…

What Does it Take?

  What does it take to succeed? I would have to say, “I have no idea!” What does it take to bolster your self-will (self-discipline)? Well, if I have thought of it, I have tried it, and so far, not working so well. What does it take to change the way you act/react so that…

Looking Forward

It has been way too long since I have written here.  It has been way too long since I have done a LOT of things that used to be commonplace. And I am trying to convince myself it is unimportant stuff. But my heart doesn’t go along with my head. My heart gains a semblance…

Knowing and Being Known

I have been thinking a lot lately about this idea of knowing God and being known by God. It probably stems from a serious self-conversation on the same subject, only without the involvement of God. I have this thing rolling in my head that is so unfamiliar to me; and kind of unwelcome at the…

Just Write…

A few posts ago, I told you that I had enrolled in a writing course. Because of that new job and because the lessons are requiring a lot of thought and prayer, I have not covered much ground yet, but that is not to say I have not learned a lot. I have promised to…

36. Rawsome Summer 2019

This past week, I was training for a new job. And still responsible for the old one as well. What that looked like in day-to-day life was working more than 8 hours each day. And, boy, was I grateful for the Thursday holiday. And while it was a day off of work, it was a…

30. Rawsome Summer 2019

The end of June is here. It has been an entire month of raw, and if I had to put a percentage out there for the month, I would say that taking bad days, perfect days and everything in between, rolling it all up…it would spit out a determination of about 85% raw for the…

27. Rawsome Summer 2019

It is Day “Something” on the restart of  my Rawsome Summer. I must admit to a great measure of relief once the decision was made to just begin again. And honestly, I will probably give up the counting. As I have said before, my intention is to continue on with no end in mind, but…
