    Laying Aside the Weight

    What do you do when you feel wounded by people who don’t even seem to care? What do you do when it seems like those people are going on just fine while you cry, pace the floor and desperately seek a solution?

  • Get Hungry or You’ll Starve to Death

    I felt guilty that I wasn’t hungry.  My husband and I had taken separate cars to church as we had commitments at different times.  He left for home before me and began preparing a lovely lunch.  He knew I was famished, because half-way through the sermon my stomach growled and I was outed! I left […]

  • Yard Sale of the Heart: It’s Time to Move

    I put Yard Sale signs up until I ran out of thumbtacks and nails.  Our house is off the beaten path so the signs were my greatest hope of driving Yard Sale traffic to our driveway.  I wanted this stuff that I had so painstakingly washed, folded, assembled, and placed price tags on to GO! […]
