The Terror of Truth

The search for honesty in every facet of each relationship in my life…is like balancing on a tightrope. I want to be out there, trying because it’s worth the difficulty. And the thrill and joy from experiencing it is tremendous – but each time I fall off onto the paper-thin net below, I wonder if it’s …

Rocks on a window

Have you ever seen a movie, where there’s a guy throwing rocks at a window? Light pebbles…in succession…trying to get the attention of the girl behind the curtains. It’s usually at night, and he’s trying to be subtle, yet persistent enough to make her aware that he’s down there – wanting her to look and …

Do Re Mi…

Sat down at the keyboard today.      Let’s just say I have a long way to go. 🙂 But I will get there. “Music of the Night” is in the beginning stages. And “The Notebook” Original score — we’ll see. Today was an absolutely gorgeous day. It came after the over-amped “alarm” that was …

Unclenching and Ever-changing

A brief update on my current experiment. Today marks Day 4 of my 1st week to cut back my coffee intake. Happily, only my 1st cup was had this morning! And I am happy that a trip to Dunkin Donuts with the Mitchell kids later in the day, did not tempt me. I did not …

Day 2

I have not had coffee since Tuesday, Wednesday being my first official day (as you read). I think it’s going well. I miss the taste, but yesterday morning and today I’ve had tea in the morning to waken my mind. It’s not the same, but it works and I like the variety in tastes. 🙂 …

My 12 New Things

Visit the Originator’s Blog! My friend Danielle challenged me and some more friends to join her in this quest. She follows this blog above (and I mention I am now a fellow follower too, as well as of (In)courage, an amazing site I found through the Warm Cup of Coffee blog!) and the author of this …

To be seen

The lights are dim, with the morning sun scraping its way through the clouds, into these basement windows. My coffee cools in the cup beside me, and Augustana and Mat Kearney seep through the speakers. In these early hours of starting my day, I’ve just read something that’s made me weep. Finding Cheryl is written by …

Wait

“Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” (Psalm 27:14) Oh to wait…to be subject to something so unknown – the timing and ways of My Father. I’m a person, who happened to come to Christ early in life. I didn’t stray too far, or delve too deep into …

If….Then

You’ve heard them. The “If…then” statements. They’re everywhere. “If I had a quarter for every time…then I’d be rich” “If you don’t clean you’re room [then] you’ll be sorry!” “If this is what you’re saying, then we’ve got a problem.” “If you do ____, then _____ will happen.” The latter is the most diverse and …

Something more interesting to come soon. It’s being drafted. Something’s been itching in me since Sunday. Stay tuned. Until then…here’s a hint. image via Nashville Post
