I watched a favorite video of mine that is very deep, and it is a mesmerizing video about a boy that plays with a sheet, it flies away, he chases after it, he ends up being tied up, gives up, lies back and suddenly breaks free from the strings. Shards of glass or paper, fly … Continue reading A Lesson of Letting Go
For months now I have sacrificed my time getting upset over something I cannot control. I would wake up every day and worry about it, and became obsessed with it. It was deeply upsetting. As a Christian, I am to look to God everyday, and I did, but he cannot connect easily with us if … Continue reading What Is At The End Of The Rope?
I am sitting tonight, a few days before Christmas, thinking about the good in this year. I came up with a good one-the birds. When I worked and lived at the man's house I took care of, birds were outside the window. The second I saw my room, and noticed wide open curtains to a … Continue reading The God who gave birds
I have been fascinated with Nature and sunlight more with each passing day. I used to long for an escape somewhere at a park, and felt like I could not enjoy nature unless I was somewhere special. It took my Father's death for me to start noticing more. Sounds strange, but he was so domineering … Continue reading Noticing Everything and Loving It
You ever feel down, and then something will happen that lifts your spirits? I was down today, not feeling good physically and someone knocked on the door. It was our neighbor's child.

God tries to get my … Continue reading Sometimes Hope Is A Stick In The Middle Of the Field
I look for ways to connect with God when I can, and the best way I know how is through creation. He made me this way, to care about it so much it would affect me. Problem is, I don't understand what I am feeling. I found a song I love: Mree, In Your Eyes. … Continue reading The Deep Things In Everyday Life
/Flashback to 1998. I am living with my parents briefly, working retail during the day, and at night a few times a week, I helped out at a ballroom dance studio. I had heard my family exclaim they had seen shooting stars like crazy lately. My parents even took a photo and had it framed. … Continue reading My Infamous Shooting Star Story
This photo is blurry but this is the Senior I care for. He does not have tremendous health problems, some walking issues. He is 91. Sometimes he has moments where he thinks he won't live another day, and then he says he is surprised when he wakes up in the morning. I have looked for … Continue reading Time Goes By So Fast..yes..
