Rise Before The Fall

The leaves have been changing colors for a several weeks now, and many of them are starting to fall. I was walking up the walk which leads to my front porch steps yesterday, when I saw a single leaf fall to the ground. That one leaf had a lot of meaning. Everything that lives has and end time. We begin to perish as soon as … Continue reading Rise Before The Fall

My Resonating Resistance

I vividly remember when my mother would comfort me as a kid when I would see people in wheelchairs. To see someone being wheeled around while everyone else was walking definitely pulled at my young heartstrings. It is a reminder of my early compassion for people. I sit this morning and think about just how that compassion for others has gone through its many transformations … Continue reading My Resonating Resistance

Only He Knows The Heart

Here’s some honesty. I purposely do not follow certain Christians on WordPress for one simple reason: They make me feel like I’m not good enough. There are a few categories that I follow, and I find many writings within these categories from individuals all over the world. Different interpretations of His Word.

The opposite … Continue reading Just A Thought

Although the statistics show this, no one can say for sure how long any of us will live. Some of the earliest memories that I have are of my mothers’ parents … Continue reading Nothing In This World Lasts Forever

Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind

Originally posted on My Journey:
As things in my life are being dismantled, the destructive things, the things that I no longer find beneficial, I often put those things down and leave them alone. For a long time, maybe a year or so, I had a terrible habit that I truly hated. I would deliberately not purchase this habit, or engage in it. Many times… Continue reading Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind

What I Have Allowed In

It is getting close to Halloween. The sound of footsteps, as they crush and kick the fallen leaves, will soon fill the evening. The knocks on the door will echo throughout our home. I will soon gaze through the glass of my entryway, observing the eager youngsters who await the handouts. A partially-filled bag or pail will be presented, and the sweets will be dropped … Continue reading What I Have Allowed In
