Are you a complainer? Come on, ‘fess up. Your dinner’s too cold, the weather’s too hot, my bed’s too hard, you hate it when the dogs bark, they have a better car than I do. On and on it goes. I don’t like being around people like that; but then all of a sudden I … More Like Any “Whine” With That?
I get various wood particles in my eyes often. Sometimes they’re small, scratchy and irritable (like sawdust); but other times I find myself with a huge cedar plank lodged in them!

But then you wait, and you wait, and … you … wait … and nothing … More But Does That Mean We’re Giving Up On God?
As I wrote about in my last post Oh, Baby – I’m Cruisin’ Now, I was crushed when I got nailed by the women’s ministry lead during my year-long mentor group at our new church. Here I had thought I was doing so good in my spiritual walk – why had I been so blind … More Well At Least There’s Some Change In Me
