It’s all connected!

Do you ever take a trip down memory lane? Just a couple of days ago I was cleaning out drawers in my house and stumbled across several old photos. That good for a few laughs. You can read about it here. Clearly, this must be a memory week for me. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to speak at chapel at North Cobb Christian School, where my children attended for their first few years of school. A lot has changed about the school. They've added buildings, a football team, a new entry road, and the direction carpool drives is reverse from [...]

Get Rid of It!

Do you lift weights? I have from time to time. I tend to go through cycles in my workout routines. For a long time I was doing weight training, then shifted to cardio workouts and then was into running for a while. Workout routines bore me after a while so I have to change to something new. We've recently decided to get rid of our home gym. Since my son went off to college, it has served as a table, a rack, and a dust collector more than a home gym. It's in great condition, like new in fact. So [...]

Be the Key!

Do you ever lose things, or is it just me? Yesterday, I was looking for something I need next week and it wasn't where it should be. Do you ever have that happen? I was bound and determined to find it, so I launched into an all out search through my house. I cleaned out filing cabinets, drawers, closets, and I'm not finished yet. I have yet to find the item I'm looking for, but I have stumbled across many other treasures along the way. I was able to fill a huge box with cards and notes I've collected over [...]

Do you dread doing it?

It's time. No matter how much I hate doing it, it just has to be done. What am I talking about? Mopping. It is one of the household chores that I absolutely avoid until it can't be avoided anymore. Depending on how much time I've allowed to pass since the last time I mopped the job may take longer, more scrubbing. In reality, it would be easier if I would stop avoiding it and do it frequently. Then I'd just be maintaining instead of hard scrubbing. The funny thing is, the moment I finish mopping, I'm so happy I did [...]

This calls for war!

Have you seen the movie War Room yet? It released this past week and is doing quite well in the box office, ranking number 2 this weekend and bringing in an estimated $10.7M. It is proving, by it's own tagline, that prayer is a powerful weapon. As the fifth movie made by the Kendrick Brothers, War Room starred some recognizable faces in the faith community. Well known speaker, teacher, and writer, Beth Moore made a cameo appearance in the movie, while fellow speaker, teacher, writer, Priscilla Shrier, starred in the movie. When asked why she thought it was important to make a movie [...]

Cup of tea, anyone?

My morning cup of tea. Did you ever get in trouble in elementary school? I only got in trouble for one thing, and its going to surprise you I'm sure. I got in trouble for talking too much. Shocker, right? Some things never change. My brothers were a different story. I won't tell on them today (they can pay me later), but I will tell on one of their teachers. When we were in school, back when the dinosaurs roamed the earth, teachers could paddle their students. My younger brother, Steve, had a teacher, Ms. Sharpe,  who warned students when [...]

Does it line up?

Proof that Nanny still has a strong influence in my life. Do you sew? I am doing well to sew a button back on a shirt, but my grandmother, we called Nanny, was a phenomenal seamstress, among other things. Nanny and I loved to shop together. I remember her taking me to the Limited, which was the store to shop back in the day. She had me choose something I liked. I picked out the most beautiful skirt. It was the trend of the day. I thought she was going to buy it for me and I was very excited. [...]

Drop anchor!

The anchor from the pirate ship in St. Augustine. Have you ever been on a ship? I've had the privilege of going a cruise before. It was quite fabulous. This summer I had the chance to walk around on a working ship that is a replicated pirate ship. While the ship is fully functioning with bathrooms, a galley, and such, it wasn't a cruise ship. The thing that fascinated me the most about this ship was the anchor. It was huge, ginormous, to  steal a word from Elf. They told us how much it weighed, but I was [...]

What did you want to be when you grew up?

  Sam at 3 years old. What did you want to be when you grew up? A superhero? A sports star? A musical sensation? Most children dream of world changing professions or positions that allow them to continuously do their favorite things, whether it's playing a sport or some musical aspiration. As children, we dream big and don't think anything is impossible. Then life happens. We grow up, get tainted by the pessimistic attitudes of others, and begin to feel pressure to make a certain amount of money to make ends meet or keep up with the Jones' as [...]

Help! I need somebody!

Have you ever been pulled over by a police officer? I would imagine it is a sickening feeling to look up in your rear view mirror and see the person behind you with the blue lights flashing. I may or may not have experienced it in my lifetime. I'll never tell. This past week the local police seemed to be busy everywhere I went. In one day I passed four different people who had the misfortune of being escorted to the side of the road only to hear the words, License and registration, please." There was something a bit unusual [...]
