stretched to the limit, pulled

How often have you been stretched to the limit, felt like you’ve reached a breaking point, or been brought to your knees? Sound familiar anyone…  My favorite part has to be just when you think you can’t handle anymore and God says, “Ah-hum… excuse me, but yes you can!” http://jessiejeanine.com/2011/11/23/the-gardener/ I am a firm believer that […]

Leaving Town!

Every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was only being redirected to something better. There really is no such thing as failure… Rather, we are taking steps forward and gathering experience that will help us achieve our goals and dreams in the future. If you do not fear rejection, then […]

A guide to help victims become survivors. Can anyone else relate to this? “I don’t want to be a victim OR a survivor! I want to live an alternate reality. I don’t want this to be my reality and I spend a lot of energy trying to avoid it. I do pretty good until something […]

A Single Ember - Ignite the Glow

While yesterday’s post needs no elaboration, I might share how the story affects me and why it will always be special. By the time you get to the end of that story (A Single Ember) know that is how I have felt for awhile now. I raised my girl going to church and volunteering at […]

Thank You, Father

Thank you Father… For allowing me the capacity to still be compassionate, loving and forgiving even after all that has happened and all I have seen. That I am still resilient and tenacious enough to not lose my hope, faith or belief. Not in You, not in others, nor in all that is good. These […]

For almost 2 years I had a handful of regular supporters (people who made consistent monthly donations to this site) besides random gifts that would come in. But, then I […]

I locked my keys in the car!

We have been traveling across country again on our way back to Colorado. Living out of hotels, fast food, cramped bodies and miles upon miles of scenery. I don’t mind any of it (ok, maybe the cheap beds) but I love road trips and you just never know what might happen along the way! Time […]
