Control


The Janet Jackson song comes to mind šŸŽ¶šŸŽ¤ Control. It's okay if you want to Youtube the song for nostalgia sake. So, a few things inspired this rambling. While I was on vacation, we had taken a water taxi to do a short excursion and on the way back, we saw police tapes. As the … Continue reading Control

A Single Sinner’s Prayer


This week had been a little hectic but my parents gave me power of attorney. It's a great decision for them but definitely extra extra responsibilities for me. Oh well, if I made it through basic training and showering with a group of women, then I can do this.

You Know When You Know


I am not afraid of change and I tend to move when my internal clock says it's time to get going. After that message is sent to my brain, I start my journey. I feel like I am on a never ending journey that is like a roller coaster. I am not sure if I … Continue reading You Know When You Know

The Unresolved Destruction

In the post, … Continue reading Jesus and Christianity Were Liberal

The news is quick to report the gruesome and the heartlessness of people … Continue reading Do You Still Pray?

The story hasĀ been drilled into every Christian's religious lessonĀ about God's grace. He came, He saw, He forgave, He died and He rose. We are all saved by His grace and mercy. 'We are saved by grace' isĀ such a beautiful concept to read, hear and sing about but it can be a difficult concept to accept. … Continue reading God’s Grace

People spend their lives comparing themselves to others. Why am I not married yet like my friends? Why can't I get pregnant easily like my sister? Why am I not as successful orĀ thin or this or that. The list can go on. There is nothing wrong with setting goals forĀ your lives but the problem isĀ many … Continue reading Before You Feel Pressure
