Moment of Truth Monday

Words are my jam. Lyrics, novels, hand-written letters, journaling, and analogies are among my favorites. The ones kindly spoken and those that inspire healing, their power leaves me awed. Words are carriers of healing and conduits of hurt. We have the ability, with very little effort, to build up or destroy. What a responsibility we…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

Moment of Truth Monday

Several years ago, we were evacuated from our home. In the thick of a significant drought, with grass resembling hay and crunching under foot like a fall leaf, our area was desperate for rain.

Though, I have single-handedly…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

I used to dream of being a singer. It started in the early days of my dad’s song leading at church. He would go practice and my sisters and I would assume the stage with our microphone stands. We were good {at least we thought we were good} without microphones or an audience. I’m not…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

I love denim. If one pair of jeans is good, then 10 pairs is obviously better. I might own denim shirts in a variety of colors. If a girl could marry denim, this one already did. Tracking with me? I used to think this obsession {let’s just call it what it is, friends} was contained…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday
