RUN, RUN, AS FAST AS YOU CAN!

                The Highlands of Scotland Have you ever been to the United Kingdom? It is made up of Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and England. I spent the last 10 days there and it was a glorious trip. I've dreamed of going to London ever since I was a little girl. Movies like My Fair Lady, Notting Hill, and Parent Trap all caused me to long to go there, not to mention watching Downton Abbey. I have a friends who live as missionaries in Scotland and I've heard about the beautiful rolling hills [...]

Repost: You Won’t Believe This and It Really Happened

This is my most popular post to date (Shared March 2014). I decided to share it again today. What does a pimp look like? Where does he operate? How does he gain possession of a new girl? These are questions we all need to think about. The answers might surprise you. A lot of people still have the 1970s picture of a pimp in their mind. You know the one: 1. big hat 2. leisure suit 3.  jacked up car 4. dice hanging from the rear view mirror The only place you'll find a pimp like that now is in [...]

DANGER! BEWARE!

Do you live anywhere near railroad tracks? I didn't until my adult life, but now it's not uncommon for me to hear a train whistle blowing multiple times a day. A train's whistle announces the approaching train to all who are within earshot. I can hear the whistle blowing in various parts of the city; however, it is only when I'm close to where tracks cross over the road that I experience the triple warning: the train whistle blowing the crossing bars coming down the crossing bells ringing with lights blinking The United States Railroad system has experienced enough tragedy from trains [...]

Invincible or Gullible?

Have you ever noticed how teenagers all seem to feel invincible? They think, It will never happen to me. Oh, it may happen to other people, but not them. It can be frustrating at times, even downright irritating, that is until you understand it's normal. Dictionary.com defines invincible as, incapable of being conquered, defeated, or subdued; insuperable; insurmountable." While scientists used to think brain development was fairly complete by age 10, they're now aware that the frontal lobe of the brain isn't fully developed until about age twenty-five. As Frances Jensen put it, It's the part of the brain that says: [...]

How are you carrying it?

Do you like quotes? I have a notebook of my favorite quotes. Some of them are from famous people, like Billy Graham, Mother Teresa , or Bill Cosby. Others are things friends of mine or pastors have said that hold a great deal of meaning for me, so I wrote them down. This morning I came across this quote by Lena Horne and had to ponder it a minute. It's weighty. It carries a lot of truth. I thought back to last week when Atlanta was hit by the snow and ice so quickly, leaving hundreds of drivers stranded on the [...]

Friend or Frienemy?

How many friends do you have on Facebook? How many followers do you have on Instagram or Twitter? Do you know them all? Could you pick them out of a crowd and name everyone? If you,'re like most people, you answered the last question with a resounding "No" because you don't have consistent contact with over half of the people you're connected with on social media. While social media is great, it allows us to communicate the same message to a lot of people at once, it gives us a false sense of relationships and connectedness, if that's a word. [...]

Danger!

Do you have your cellphone set up to receive Amber Alerts? Everyone in our family does so last night as we were watching television it sounded like an air raid going off in our house when an Amber Alert went off.  My husband's and daughter's cellphones went off in the den while mine went off in the kitchen only to be followed by the alarm on the television. It definitely got our attention. A 14 year old female was allegedly taken from her home at 1 a.m. Wednesday morning by a 20 year old male. It was reported they were [...]
