I’m going to try to get this down before it fades. I’ll need to connect some dots, so bear with me. Living in Nicaragua made me less judgmental. That surprised me.

Door to Door Christians


The other night while I was home enjoying my limited clothes comfort, I was appropriately dressed for indoors but definitely not presentable to company. It was nearly 8 pm when a knock sounded at my door. I find it rude to hide-out when someone is at my door. So, I had to get decent and … Continue reading Door to Door Christians

No, we are not! When the emotionally wounded retell their country-music-broken-heart-sad stories, they are the victims of a selfish ogre, the precious peach … Continue reading Sorry, I Am Not Your Blessing

It was a Campbells ad about an interracial family who used one of their soups to make a family traditional meal.

Emotional Affairs – What’s the Big Deal


Photo credit: Pixabay.com; Artist: pixel2013 I saw a video circulating a while ago of a pastor and his wife preaching. He was admitting to the congregation his wrong doings with a woman. Actually, he was skirting around the issue of accepting responsibility. He pretty much blamed the kitchen sink. His wife took the microphone and … Continue reading Emotional Affairs – What’s the Big Deal
