Peace by God’s Grace

I don’t know why my mind runs rampant at 2 a.m. It’s a terrifying mystery how quickly I become caught in what feels like a literal roller coaster in my mind. It descends higher and higher and my stomach churns with the expectation of a BIG drop into the abyss of my reckless thoughts. I […]


It’s raining. I’m tired. It’s out of the way. I’m too busy. Yes, there were a million reasons not to lace up my running shoes and hit the pavement. It’s easy to list the reasons not to do something uncomfortable but I, being the business gal that I am, have a personal policy. Unless I […]

Website Woes

First, let me say that the tech genius who manages my website is wonderful. God puts people into our lives and our businesses for a reason! I would never ever in a million years attempt to do my own taxes. I have a wonderful and intelligent tax professional for that. So why on God’s green […]

Straight Ahead

I recall a time when I was running a half marathon several years ago. I’ve never been what would be considered fast. But that day, miracles aligned, and I set a personal record. I didn’t stick around for the awards ceremony because it was cold and I was tired. I didn’t figure I had even […]

A Good Reason…

Why am I late? Because my dog is 10 years old. He’s arthritic and has special needs ranging from asthma to hypoglycemia. He has good days, bad days, and in-between days. He rarely has great days when he feels like playing. So, when he does have those unusual great days, I stop whatever I’m doing […]


Rarely do I carry cash. It is just inconvenient. However, a few weeks before Christmas someone gifted me with a wonderful and crisp one-hundred-dollar bill. I was grateful. To say that I am frugal is an understatement. I grew up learning to save money. I don’t need a lot of ‘extras’ and my biggest indulgences […]
