Just Thinking Here

2021. The year I’m officially outed as a conspiracy theorist. Or a reality theorist. But whatever. I haven’t come to my conclusions quickly or easily. Who wants to be on the opposite side of “doing their part”? Not me! Contrary to one kind woman’s opinion, I do have a heart and I don’t want to…

People

Do you ever wonder how a coliseum full of Roman citizens could make a fun day of watching enslaved people fight to the death? How they could happily cheer on a hungry pack of lions as they ripped Christians limb from limb with no sense of shock or horror? Innocent men, women, and children torn…

Life on the Other Side of Abuse

Ben and I watched a limited series on Netflix last weekend. Maid chronicles the true story of a woman (Alex) in an abusive relationship who struggles to make a life for herself and her daughter apart from her abuser. It is thrilling when she gets away and finds a safe place. It’s heartbreaking to see…

He’s Got the Whole World..You Know the Thing..

Sometimes prayer seems futile. It’s hard to imagine things actually changing when we voice our concerns to God and ask him to fix what’s wrong. Because sometimes we’ve prayed and seen exactly zero results. That friend keeps going under with their addiction. The cancer doesn’t go away. The better job opportunity goes to someone else….

Dubya Em Dees

How do you bring a country to its knees? How do you make sure people (smart, logical people!) are so emotionally exhausted and terrified they are willing to lay down their rights (especially the rights of their neighbors) in the name of “safety”? How do you get people to turn on each other so that…

Fall and other things

I love this time of year! The air is a bit cooler, the leaves start to change, you can drink coffee all day without overheating. Kids are back in school, and the holidays are right around the corner! Coffee tastes better on a cool morning! The squirrels are bustling around preparing for winter! Glorious fall!…

Being Prepared

It’s time. It’s time to realize our country, heck, our world, is not going back to normal. Not anytime soon, anyway. So, what’s a girl to do? Get your house in order. What do I mean by that? Turn off Netflix for a minute and pay attention. Get your house in order. The list below…

Nothing But The Truth

Things that are true stand the test of time. Things that are true can hold their own against doubts and misgivings. Things that are true will not be washed away in the flood of popular opinion or made untrue by lies. The truth will be there when all else is exposed for the nothing it…

Where Do You Stand?

I don’t want any part of it. It’s not good for you, although it may appear that way for a short while. You may not feel the consequences yet, but you will. It’s going to kill you, actually. We’ve got to stop looking only at the short term, because the future ramifications will be here…

Sea-ing Differently

I don’t want to write this blog. I’m going to do it anyway. First of all, I want you to know something. I love you. Maybe I don’t even know you, but I love you just the same. You are a person created in God’s image. You are valuable, and you are loved. There has…
