Crash and Burn

Sometimes life just gets out of control.  I have called it crisis mode before and this time around it occurred to me that when in crisis mode only the necessary things get done.  We have to eat, sleep, have clean clothes and deal with whatever it is that has us in crisis mode.

Handling Anger

Handling Anger

Anger.  What a dirty little word.  It often brings up shame, memories of times and places, hurts and all sorts of other things.What do we do with it?  I will admit, anger is where I go first.  I hate that about myself and admire women who take everything in stride never seeming to be bothered.… Continue Reading

Here I sit

Here I sit, listening to the Meredith Andrews song yet again. Soaking up the truth in the lyrics. So thankful He is constant and will never leave me.
