Out With The Old…….

  Here we are already five days into the New Year. I decided to take down the Christmas tree and all the decorations that go with that wonderful time of the year. Sigh. I hesitated. If you read my post O Christmas Tree then you know that we cut down a fresh tree. A VERY freshContinue reading “Out With The Old…….”

And The Beat Goes On……….(my personal musical)

Fear. Sadly, I know it all too well. I have come a long way, but I am always trying to be aware of the unwelcome fear creeping in. I have learned that most of the fears I entertain are irrational, for me. Fear of worms, caterpillars and Dentist visits.

My Goals – Score!

I was faced, recently, with the question: What are my goals for my blogging adventure?  Ugh.  Goals, to me, belong in soccer or football.  I’m just kidding, but, making a list of goals has always been difficult for me.  Let me tell you why.

The Bruises of Life

Another tragedy for America – The Boston Marathon Bombings.  With each disaster that hits our nation comes a twinge of pain, as in an old wound that acts up from time to time.  When we experienced first hand a great loss in our family (see Prisoner of Hope series on this blog) it brought aContinue reading “The Bruises of Life”

No Fear

Several years ago while enjoying Six Flags Great Adventure Amusement Park in NJ I saw a teenage boy with one of those “No Fear” brand t-shirts on.  It attracted my attention because on the front it said, “FEAR…..”, and on the back it said, “Thief of Dreams”.  I was taken back about how true thatContinue reading “No Fear”
