On the flip side

So, grownfolks, I live in one of the states within America that has begun opening up in phases and boy, what a difference it has made! There have been many losses we have all incurred in this period, but in thinking, I realized one thing: I like some of the outcomes of this pandemic. I…Read more On the flip side

Notes from a Crisis

To say that life has changed in the last two weeks would be an understatement. A more close-to-reality statement would be that all of life hit a major pause button. It’s like when you watch a scene on TV with a speed setting that is fast-forwarding it all and then you suddenly have the scene…Read more Notes from a Crisis

The Forgotten Kiddos

To be honest with you, I don’t really know how to go about writing this post. In fact, it is more likely to be my first of several but I find it vital to at least start the conversation. What’s the issue? Well, I have only more recently found myself drawn to the reality of…Read more The Forgotten Kiddos

All About the Feels

Happy new year, friends and family! I’ve been pondering for quite a while now what you’re about to read. Frankly, it’s about time I penned it down.

People are such tools.

** WARNING: Long-ish post. Well worth the read, though.** Sooo, I’ve had cause recently to look back on 2019 a few times. Of course, there are many writing directions one can take such a sentence, but what I am going to highlight here is with regard to relationships. In my opinion, all of life is…Read more People are such tools.

The real Seer

Hi friends! Sorry that I’ve been awol. Busy times! Anyway, here I am. I’m musing and, just a heads up, it’s a tough topic, this one. What am I on about? The Jeni Haynes story. I went on YouTube recently to do a search and while there, suggested to me was this. I’d been aware…Read more The real Seer

The flippancy of love

If one went solely by what people said these days, an alien visitor to the planet would think that everybody loved everybody. Or that loving was easy and came naturally. Or that loving occurred whether you knew a person or not. EEEEN. Wrong. To love another is mostly a choice one makes. For sure there…Read more The flippancy of love

High Praise

Hello, peeps and peepettes! I’ve been long gone, haven’t I? Turns out the death of one’s grandmother has many effects. All good now though. Happy to be back on the blogging scene. Missed you all! Did you have a nice Christmas? A nice entrance into the new year? I sure hope so. Hey, let me…Read more High Praise

Relearning civility

For the last few weeks, the pastor at our church (let's call him M, shall we?) has been talking about topics that “no one wants to touch from the pulpit”.
