SAME RIVER SAME WORD

Have you ever been kayaking down a river? I fell in love with kayaking on a family vacation several years ago and when my son said he wanted to do something special together before he went off to graduate school, I knew what I wanted to do. We spent a morning kayaking down the Chestatee River in Dahlonega, Georgia. It was such a quiet, peaceful morning. There was only one other kayak on the river as we made our way down stream, which was probably good since we didn't really know what we were doing. I may or may not have [...]

STOP IT!

Photo credit: Jennifer O'Neal Are you a magazine reader? I find that I usually only look purchase magazines when I'm traveling by plane, because they're mindless reading. You know what I mean, the kind of things you read more as time fillers than for content. I also find that I glance through them in the nail salon. One of the biggest reasons I don't frequently purchase magazines is because of the messages they send women. What message could that possibly be, you might ask? The one almost every cover seems to convey, Your worth is wrapped up in [...]

What or who is number one?

Do you have a Facebook page? I do and I am on it fairly regularly, posting articles on sex trafficking as well as praises for great things that happen in the fight. I tend to skim over other things, trying to avoid being sucked in for hours. Sometimes there are stories and posts that just draw you in and demand your attention. This morning I read a post by a friend who shared a conversation between her and a little boy God has brought into her life. It was precious. He wanted to know, ...what's more important, worshiping God or getting [...]

Full Body Search

Have you ever been searched by airport security? Depending on where you've traveled, it can be quite an ordeal. I've had the American search, which is a light tapping on your body. It takes a couple of seconds and you're on your way. But I've also had the Ghanaian search, which is one step short of a cavity search. Let's put it this way, the woman knew far more about me than anyone else in Ghana. The purpose for the search is for safety measures. They are looking for things they couldn't find with the naked eye. They're looking to [...]

What comes out when you squeeze?

How do you squeeze toothpaste on your toothbrush? Do you squeeze from the middle thus creating a bow effect with the tube? Or do you push the toothpaste to the end of the tube and then squirt, leaving part of the tube flattened with the other end bulging? These are important things to know. People have had knockdown drag-out fights over less than this. We can learn a lot from a tube of toothpaste and what happens to it when it's squeezed. For example, when you squeeze the tube of toothpaste, however you squeeze, what comes out of it? Toothpaste, [...]

Who is your neighbor?

The Blind Side Did you watch The Blind Side last night?  It was on network television and even though we own the movie, when we came across it channel surfing we landed there and watched it for a while.  I love the movie and I particularly love Sandra Bullock as Leigh Anne Tuohy.  She is classy and sassy and will fight like a mama bear when it comes to her children, including the big one she adopted, Michael Oher.  Michael was a young homeless man who had no one in his corner, that was until he fell on Leigh Ann [...]
