The Purpose Driven Life

I made a confession to someone other than myself yesterday about some things that were heavy on my heart.  I confessed that I was struggling with my purpose.  I know enough to know that one’s sense of purpose is related to one’s sense of value.  And one’s sense of value is usually defined by those… Continue reading The Purpose Driven Life

Home for the Holidays

I tend to dread the holidays.  Every year I try to brace myself and come up with some type of game plan that will make them more bearable.  Last year I was able to escape and visit friends in the sunshine state.  This year there was so much going on leading up to them that… Continue reading Home for the Holidays

BE BRAVE.

As I mentioned in my previous post I am currently immersed in the “Divergent” series.  While there are many components of the story line that have lured me in, one of the most appealing is the Dauntless faction.  The Divergent story takes place in a city that is divided up by factions.  Each faction consists… Continue reading BE BRAVE.

The Art of War

I’m always drawn to these “darker” type of storylines.  Either there’s a war happening, a murder to be solved, or some sort of conflict between two opposing forces which can only be resolved in the termination of one of those forces.  If the story includes a female heroine of some sort who appears non threatening but proves she is… Continue reading The Art of War

This is My Portion

Not too long ago I allowed my burning frustration with this season to boil over into anger.  I thought about the many journals I have stored up in my night stand drawer right next to my bed.  Pages and pages of letters to the Lord written over the last 11 years.  Pouring out my heart, my dreams, my dedications… Continue reading This is My Portion
