Families are like branches on a tree. We grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one. What is family? Is family where we come from? Is family who we are? Is family a group of people we are related to? Or can family be that special group of people you relate to but … Continue reading Family
God made me a very emotional woman. I feel things very deeply. I am most definitely not one of those happy-go-lucky type of women, one of those women who have those warm bubbly personalities, that just ooze confidence. The women that can stand in front of a room of 300 and carry on a conversation … Continue reading Standing Apart …
Life is about choices. Some we regret, some we’re proud of. Some will haunt us for forever. The message: we are what we choose to be. Have you ever wondered what your life would look like had you taken a different path? You know, taken that other job instead of the one you are now … Continue reading Choices
As I sit here in the parking lot of Walgreens in Columbia … I am filled with disappointment… in myself.
I showed un-Christlike behavior less than an hour ago, and I feel awful about it.
I am sure we have all seen this on television, where someone is waiting on a parking spot somewhere and some car whips right in and takes it. Well this was me in a parking lot in upper state South Carolina today.
I was waiting, patiently with my blinker on and out of no where comes a car and just pulls into the spot that I was waiting for. 🤯
Well, my reaction to this was not a very considerate or Christlike one. 🤦🏻♀️ I am very embarrassed to say now that I laid on my horn as this car was pulling into this spot, and then I even pulled up beside that car, rolled the window down and ‘had words’ with the driver. (Nothing awful, but still.)
What made me feel even worse about my behavior was there was a family with three children standing behind their car, next to the spot I was waiting for… just watching all of this.
As I was backing up to leave, I don’t think I will forget the looks on their faces. I felt like Christ was saying to me, (in their faces) ‘is this what you want people to see in Me? Is this who you want to be?’
I will be the first to admit that I don’t like to be told no. By anyone. Or, hearing ‘Not now, you will just have to wait.’ Ugh!!! I don’t know what it is about being told no that just seems to push my buttons and can at times just piss me off…(depending upon the … Continue reading Disappointment
Why in the world does buying a home have to be so stressful? We download those various ‘home buying apps’ that are suppose to make this process easier. Then we start saving various homes that look hopeful in the apps. Eventually we will even attempt to try to look at some of these said homes. So … Continue reading Home Buying…
Do you know those long family car trips you have made with little ones, where you will often here children ask, ‘are we almost there yet?’ Or before an exciting vacation the same children will keep on asking, “Is it time to leave yet?’ I feel like I have been that child for the past several … Continue reading Not yet …
