Confessions of a Single Blogger

I didn’t wake up one day to find myself forty-something and single. I wrestled with God about it every step of the way. Desperation, anger, bitterness, and depression have all been a part of this journey toward accepting that God’s will for my life is entirely different from my desires and plans. But I can’t...

A Divided Heart

It is interesting to me how different organs of the body became associated with parts of the human psyche. Really, it is all happening in the brain. If I say that my heart is divided, everyone understands that it is actually my mind that is being pulled in two different directions. God should be the... Continue Reading →

Setting the Anchor Watch

Never before have I needed to so purposely anchor myself to the truth and my hope in Jesus Christ. My concerns for my country and the future have been at the forefront, this week.

Insecurity Blanket

A year ago, I attended my twenty-year academy reunion, which alerted the alumni association to my location. Recently, they sent me a copy of the latest magazine, no doubt to tempt me to rejoin.

Whac-A-Mole: Mental Edition

I’m not a people person. I have trouble saying the right thing in the best of times, so I am really at a loss when a person is upset or going through difficulty. My personal strengths are learning and problem solving, not showing sympathy. I don’t like this about myself. I excel at my job,... Continue Reading →
