Lord, that was supposed be MY Blessing

“Seriously, they chose HER to be the next director?” I thought while walking into the breakroom after learning this news. Once there, it was like being back in high school where the popular girls, my so-called friends, dissected their latest victim, not much differently from the frog we had just left displayed in the science lab. Although I knew this was wrong, I kept my mouth shut, thankful not to be the subject of their venomous remarks. I figured that teenage girls naturally outgrew this kind of catty talk only to discover that women elevated it into full-blown verbal assaults.

In fact, she welcomed death, for she eagerly anticipated going to Heaven to see her Savior.

Finding Joy in the Joyous time of the Year

“Are you serious? Who doesn’t like Christmas?” asked my incredulous husband, the man who sings Christmas Carols in his sleep the day after Thanksgiving.  My brain was already in overdrive thinking about everything I needed to accomplish over the holidays.  “I never said I didn’t like Christmas; it just isn’t my favorite time of year… Continue reading Finding Joy in the Joyous time of the Year
