My children were up around the same time I was up this morning which meant my morning began with more activity than I would like. Today was their first day of school since May and even though I am happy about it, I also realize that it begins again the days and nights of homework, basketball and...

My birthday was yesterday, August 10th!  I am now officially a grown woman!  50 years old.  I woulda' never thought I could feel this good at 50.  The day came with a lot of phone calls, texts, gifts and the most beautiful sentences about how young I looked for 50, I can't believe you are 50, looks...

Sunday is my favorite day. GOD morning!  When I woke up this morning that is the first thing I thought about God and then I thought about my uncle Tony and then I thought about how blessed I am.  My eyes opened without the alarm at 5:15 a.m. I texted "GOD morning!" to a few folks and then...

Before I even begin let me issue a disclaimer. I am tired. That being said what is this addiction that we have with cell phones?

BP
  Did you know that AM/PM, the convenient store, uses gas from BP?  I did not know this until a friend of mine told me that it was true.  So what I did was to drive into an AM/PM and get some gas.  The gas is always available and inexpensive, at least for those of us who use regular gas. (...

My favorite day Sunday has come and gone. The topic that pastor spoke on was I'm Not Tired Yet. At the time when I was sitting in the pew I had no idea how much this message would stay with me.  The guest pastor who spoke impressed upon me the need to realize that there are going to be times when...

 I spent the last several days with my sister and my three fabulous children in Paso Robles, California.  A 3 and a half hour drive from Tracy and in those three and a half hours the California I knew and could relate to was to be no more. I am speaking strictly as a first time visitor. The...

Tonight I went to my women on mission bible group and as always I enjoyed being in the presence of like-minded women. We talked about 2 Timothy 3:16, 17 where Timothy says that all scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training.  God's breath, God's word is...

You can go to any public place, any private place and just any place and you will see groups of people who appeared to have lost all respect for themselves and for you.  I see grown men who want to be boys and boys who want to be grown men.  Girls who want to be women and women who want to be girls...
