My Thoughts On Love

There’s only an hour or so left on the clock before Valentine’s Day is over, but I thought that I would spend just a few minutes of that time sharing what I think about this little thing called love.  I’ve learned a lot over the years, as most people do when they are in relationships and grow […]

Take a Breath and a Step Back

Remember this post I wrote a couple of months ago? Well, since that time I’ve had to continuously remind myself of that lesson. Over and over.  I’m a wee bit hard headed, you see. I apparently like to take my time learning things. I’m still struggling.  So much so, that on New Year’s Eve, I […]

Spiritual Warfare for Women

  Sometimes, we Christians “keep it safe.”  We talk about prayer requests (as long as it isn’t too personal), we talk about OTHERS and their needs, we talk about church ministries, we talk about what a great sermon our past or gave, but we don’t talk about what’s really real.  Our deepest, darkest struggles, our […]

The Blessing

This book, while only an update on a previously published edition, is definitely worth picking up and reading. I was a little hesitant of it when I first read the description and subtitle because so often in modern times these types of books are just simply full of rambling psycho babble and empty of any […]

Getting to Know Me: The Nilla Wafers and Milk Edition

I don’t remember more than a few tidbits here and there of my life before I was around four or five.  This is probably typical of most people, or at least I think it is. I remember really desiring a pink cat so one night when my mom went to sleep, I snuck around and […]

Getting to Know Me: The Story Begins…

If you read my post about growing up without a father, you may find that I have a story to tell. Actually, I have a lot of them. Some funny, some heartwarming, some really, really horrid. I didn’t have your typical All-American childhood. Quite honestly, I didn’t have much of a childhood at all. I […]

Life Without Daddy

Father’s Day is approaching and every year at this time I get a little introspective. Until I got married and had children, I never celebrated this holiday. Not even once. Why? Well, simply put, I didn’t have a father. Obviously there was a man that helped in my conception, but aside from a few random […]

My Husband Rocks Friday

It’s been awhile since I’ve participated in this meme, and I’ve missed it! So, here I am again! This week, I’m going to brag on Hubs a little about his spiritual growth since getting saved last summer. It’s not even been a full year since it happened, but the transformation that I’ve witnessed in my […]

The Return of the Dustybug

I’m back! I know that I said that I’d be back on Monday, but Monday came and went and I just didn’t feel “ready” to come back to posting just yet. I’ve been doing a lot of self reflection over the last week and I’ve realized that I have let my priorities slip and there […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I wish that I had something wonderfully romantic to write this morning, but a special little girl is having a birthday party today and I have many preparations to attend to. So, I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day and gets to spend some quality time with their significant others! “Love is not love […]
