New Year Resolutions…

Once a year, the New Year comes.  Before this happens, I take time to reflect on the year that has passed, and think about what I want to accomplish in the upcoming new one. This year, I reflected and I planned.  A little of each.  I usually have such an excitement bubbling up for what…

Faults

  "Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins." Peter 4:8 I have been having a tough time lately, especially after this weekend.  As you grow, you realize people in your life aren't perfect, and they too have faults.  They don't expect perfection from you, so why do we…

God Gives Us What We Need…

Weekend with the Family

This weekend was a busy, but super enjoyable one.  My grandmother turned 84 Friday.  I drove down to spend the weekend with her.  I got there Friday night, and my mom also came to stay the night, since my dad was fishing out of town for the weekend.  We had a nice visit.  Spending that…

What I’m Reading

I have always been an avid reader; however, after college my reading took a nose dive.  After years of English Literature studies and reading for work, I just did not enjoy it as much as I once did.  I have slowly regained my love of reading, and never lost my excitement for buying new, interesting…

Repurpose

It has been a while since I last updated the masses on the happenings in my world, so what better time than the beginning of a new year.  Happy 2016, everyone! I am always happy to see a New Year come bursting forth with the fireworks, ball drops, and drunken people into the streets; however,…
