Who Do You Think You Are?

Happy and blessed Monday! Remember that “Me” syndrome that I have mentioned before?  Well, it’s still alive and well.  Typically, we think of that syndrome as being boastful and maybe a bit selfish.  Sometimes though, it’s the opposite.  There may be a lack of self-confidence, unfounded fears and doubts about who you really are.  This…

Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day!  As I sat contemplating what I wanted to write for today, I kept thinking about when I worked a Monday through Friday job.  I always tried to show up, be on time and do the best job I could do.    Now, I’m retired.  How does that change my life?  Do I quit “laboring”?  I did…

Footprints in the Sand

Happy and blessed Monday! Not so long ago, I wrote about never being alone.  As Christians, we have that assurance.  Still, that isn’t always easy to really understand.

In a “me” kind of world where you are encouraged to always put yourself first, where your world revolves around your self-esteem, pride and ego,…

Change

Happy Monday! Sometimes something appears at a time that you need to hear it the most.  Sometimes you want so badly to save someone from themselves that it is very hard to acknowledge they can only be saved if they want to be. We can plant seeds but usually, someone else will be the one…

How To Stop Overeating

Happy Monday! As promised, here is a follow-up to last week’s post.  If you are fighting this battle, be prepared for the long haul.  It is one of the hardest battles for me. Please don’t misunderstand me, I know the context of the following scripture has absolutely nothing to do with my battle but it…
