When life becomes overwhelming what do you do?

Can you give up? No. That’s not a viable solution. The only thing you can do is acknowledge where you are and come up with a plan of action.

Today was one of those days for me. A day where I felt like everything was just caving in on me. I am so tired of the lack. Not having enough of this or that. Shuffling this to pay that…Wow!! Continue reading TIRED AND OVERWHELMED!


O Captain, My Captain

“O Captain, My Captain”


“O Captain, my Captain. Who knows where that comes from? Anybody? Not a clue? It’s from a poem by Walt Whitman about Mr. Abraham Lincoln. Now in this class you can either call me Mr. Keating, or if you’re slightly more daring, O Captain my Captain.”


Robin Williams Continue reading O Captain, My Captain


“But for the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

Galatians 5:22-23

It has been a while since last I blogged. Much has transpired in that time for which I’ve not been able to be here. It was my initial intent to blog 2-3 times a week, but when that became like a chore and not something I was looking forward to doing, I decided not to. The joy of blogging had left me.

Guard your heart

When was the last time your heart was attacked? What did you do?

Some of us have harden our hearts, because we didn’t guard it. Proverbs 4:23NLT says “above all else guard your heart, for it affects everything you do.”   Michael Hyatt states, “Your heart is the most important leadership tool you have. It is not your experience, knowledge, or skills. It is your heart that matters most of all.”  Continue reading Wisdom Wednesday


“Are you Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired?”

Have you ever had to choose between yourself and somebody else? This act is probably all so familiar for most parents? We, on a daily basis, may have had to choose between our kids and ourselves. It may be as simple as deciding if we can wait to buy a new pair of badly needed shoes and giving our kids some money to join their friends in an activity. Who will win out? Especially, when you’re hearing the ol’ “…but, everybody is going to be there!” whine. We, of course, want to give our kids everything, just like our Father.
