Hiding Place

Ever consider going away somewhere just so you can hide from the mundane of daily duties and dealings?  Absolutely, I have, we all have.  Our thoughts instantly go to a place far away such as the beach, the peaceful serenity of the mountains, or a destination of hibernating so no one can find us, no drama, and no responsibility.  Just you and Calgon!

I don’t want to be a Christian

Oh my gosh Connie!!! What are you saying?

Why would you even consider saying such a thing and then go as far as writing about it? What are you thinking? How could you, after all that God has blessed you with? Continue reading “I don’t want to be a Christian”

At a Dead-End Road?

Staring at A Dead-End Road?

Having that moment when you begin something exciting and fulfilling, pumped up ready to go, eager to see where and how it’s all going to play out.  YES!  Halfway there, still pumped, however, it’s fading.

Wondering Weight

It is 3:00 am and my brain is working overtime, the weight of the wondering, over what?  What could be keeping me from enjoying a night of uninterrupted sleep?  In a moment’s notice, life changed, out of nowhere, life took a turn for the better.

The thoughts that weigh on our minds in the middle of the day, or the night, are not always heavy thoughts.  Generally, when someone lies awake at night the first thought is, “they are struggling with something”.  Why does it have to appear as a struggle?  It is a rarity for the world to mention the lighthearted wonders that keep us awake.

~A missed moment of hope for someone in need is a blessing not shared~
