Being me, it’s ok!

I used to watch Sex I’m the City and wonder  what it would be like to walk down 5th ave like Carrie Bradshaw.  I dreamed of being a published writer with book signing engagements and people wanting articles from me.  I thought that was when I would know I had made it big!  Little did I know that God had a different plan for my life.

I have made huge mistakes and given up to easily when someone told me I couldn’t do something.  I believed them and my insecurities alike.  What a fool I have been.  I know God let me make those mistakes, so I could begin learn how to be comfortable in my own skin and living for Him!



I am  alright now.  Everything I have done and learned has led up to this moment in my life.   The trick now is to keep believing and not forget how I got this point.  One big fear I have is being real and not the fake someone that I thought I was.  I don’t always have to be right and I don’t always have to be heard.  I am really working on being still and being quiet.  What a big job!


Psalm 16:11

You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.


I read this and it stopped me.  I feel like we forget sometimes that all we have to do is surrender and what is God’s is ours.  The old adage, “Stop and smell the roses” pops into my head for some reason.  It’s like He is always right there, but we let life and other things get in the way.  Reach out and touch some joy today!

A Haiku


I saw a Haiku someone had posted and it reminded me, I know how to do that and I have not for quite some time.  Boy it feels good to write poetry!

Love fulfilled in He

Time stands still yet disappears

Forgiveness abounds

Soon our stay here ends

A life of world lost to sin

He can set you free

Strength of faith is bold

When all else seems faded gray

There is only one way

Find Him hold Him tight

Evil can find no entrance

When Christ is in sight!

Trying to keep fit or get fit anyway

squat challenge

I started my squat challenge yesterday.  It went really well.  Then today came!  Ouch.  Well enough whining.  After I did my squats then Mitch wanted to do his work out, so I followed along.  I must say I did pretty well, however some of the exercises jarred my knees and I didn’t like that.  But we did it and then I did a warm up with Denise somebody on the TV.  If we can keep disciplined we just might make it!  Keep up with us and let us know how you are doing!

Trials of the day


Ok so I usually count myself as a fairly impatient person.  However I spent the better half of the afternoon trying to figure out how to “borrow” books from the library on my E-Reader.   Man either I have been away from computer stuff for too long or it is way to difficult to borrow a book from the library on an electronic device.  I figured it out though.  After downloading a program and then uninstalling it, because I accidentally hit a wrong button only to reinstall it again in a matter of minutes.  Then I found the correct button.  Wow!  Needless to say I am stressed out now and feel like I am back at work trying to figure out a problem.  Off to grab a cup of strong coffee!  Now that I have unlimited access to thousands of books I am going to need my caffeine fix!

More snow and no Spring in sight!

UGH!  We just started to see some dirt and grass and now look what we wake up to.  The poor birds coming from the south are certainly going to head back that way when they see what’s in store for them.  Oh Man!
