LIFE! Now there’s a four-letter word for you.

My existence on this earth has been one big wild ride with several twists and turns while hanging on for dear life.  I’d like to think that my journey has been this way since the day I was born.  Who knows, but I’ll admit that life has thrown me some big whoppers, and I can’t help wondering if God forgot what my allotted number was for life circumstances and decided to throw a few extra ones my way.

Despite all my ups and downs, God is faithful, and I have learned a lot over the years about myself.

I have this amazing opportunity to share portions of my crazy life and hope that it offers encouragement and inspiration to whoever reads it. 

Remember, your life is special and the journey you’re on is full of adventures.  How you travel this trek will determine how much you learn and grow making your life worthy to experience.

“Life is a journey with problems to solve and lessons to learn but most of all, experiences to enjoy.”

Join me as I post stories about my life experiences and things that matter to me. At times I will throw in a short story just because I like to write and want to share them with you.
My blog can be thought provoking at times, but most of all, I hope it will bring a smile to your face and give you encouragement for whatever you may be experiencing.

Unwanted Thoughts

Unwanted Thoughts

Darkness fell upon me as the lights went out.  “Great, not again.”  I pounded the couch with my fist.  There wasn’t any bad weather to knock out the power, maybe there was an accident that involved the power lines.  Whatever it is I wasn’t about to sit around in the...

Essence of Grace

Essence of Grace

It was my turn to mow the dandelions in the upper field where the fruit trees reside.  This job requires a riding lawn mower which I have no objections to because I can ride it like a possessed woman in full rabbit gear. The scene is probably comical to anyone who may...
