Around here I'm usually known for asking "what are the chances?" 

Usually it involves something I believe my husband is just being paranoid about. He's ultra careful about everything.  He locks everything.  He double checks everything, sometimes driving me crazy.  Did I shut off the coffeepot?  Did I lock the door?  Forget about when we leave a hotel room and he has to do his double-triple routine. He checks everything in the room while w...

The last few years I've done a fair amount of traveling.  These days, mostly by plane.  For the most part I've run into very little trouble making my connections easily and on time. 

No more. 

It's getting harder and harder to find reasonable non-stop flights and therein lies most of the problem.  Last February we ended up stuck in Maine for an extra five days as we watched one connection after another disappear.  Our Monday morning made-well-in-advanced&nbs...

I'll just cut to the chase and say..it hurt like hell.  At least what I would think hell would feel like.  And if this little thing caused me so much pain I can only imagine the pain and suffering in hell. 

I had no idea what happened at first.  I looked over at my trash can and saw trash spilling over the top and thought I'd just push it down a bit.  As soon as I put my hands near the top without really touching anything I felt extreme searing pain in my left t...

The love of truth is a rare commodity these days.  Critical thinking has become a lost art.  We're living in an age of "if it feels good it must be good" and "if it's true for you", great but don't expect me to join in.  My truth and your truth are not in sync nor does it have to be because there is no such thing as truth anymore.  

This morning I was studying about a blind man from birth who was healed by Jesus.  Most know the leaders of the day (the Pharis...

I make a pretty good chocolate zucchini cake.  I used to make it often in the summers when I had an abundance of zucchini from the garden. Even my son who hated squash liked this cake.  

Carrot cake is a crowd pleaser.  Just about everyone likes a good carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. 

But I have a new one for you.  I just got this recipe for an Unbeetable Chocolate Cake.  I haven't tried it yet but looking at the picture it looks absolutely delici...

My husband and I have been teaching High School Sunday School for a while now.  We enjoy the kids and the challenge of teaching teens. 

About a year or so ago one of the Deacons asked if I'd be interested in teaching the little kids.  Pre-K.  I said not really.   I seem to get asked this alot down here.  I think mainly that's because I look young even though my kids are all grown and gone.  In some cases I'm one of the youngest in the church s...

I couldn't believe my ears.  It's just so downright tragic.  Horrible.  My heart went into my stomach at the news.  That could have been us, but "by the grace of God go I" came to my mind as I stared at the television last night. 

A 20 year old drunk driver ran a red light and plowed into a vehicle that held a father and his three sons.   All four died on impact.  The father was 51 years old and his three sons ranged in ages from 19-28.  Not far of...

We make it a point NOT to get sucked into spending our hard-earned dollars on these extended warranties.  We know quite well they are pushed for good reason.  They make good money for the one's pushing them.  Most of the time whatever you've purchased has a warranty attached for a year or two anyhow. 

We bought a Hyundai because it has a 10 year warranty, the best out there for cars.  No extra extended warranty needed.   Who knows if we'll even have the car ...

I've seen death before.  I've known tragedy.  Who hasn't?  My personal life has been largely untouched by death in that I've not had any close relatives leave me yet, but I know it's coming eventually and I'm not sure how I'll handle it.  My parents and brothers and their families are still alive.  My grandmother speaks of death almost everytime I speak to her now.  She's ready to go and because of her advanced age, I will be ready to accept it when i...

I would guess that almost everyone has had a possession or two stolen by someone who had no business taking it whether it be a stolen wallet, purse, something in their car or their home.

We've all been there.  When this happens depending on the item(s) it can be a very violating experience.  How dare someone take something of mine they had no right even touching?   

When my husband and I were building our first home we had a whole pallet of roof shingles ...

Well maybe not a whole one, but I did have alligator today for the first time ever. 

I wasn't sure what to expect but decided to give it a try since I've never eaten anything "odd" before.  I had a chance back in Montana years and years ago to eat buffalo but I balked at it.  To me, a New Englander born and bred, eating an alligator or a buffalo (even in the form of a burger) would be considered odd.  Funny since eating a bright red lobster or a steamed clam dipp...

They say confession is good for the soul.  I'm feeling really guilty so I must confess. 

All kinds of things come to mind now.  The thought that it really isn't that bad comes and goes along with the thought that I can't believe I sabtotaged myself like that.  I've been doing so well and this happened.  Why can't I just be good?  Why do I do what I don't want to do and do what I shouldn't do? 

I am flawed.  That's the only human explanation.&nbs...

I have a friend who loves to go to garage sales.  I can take them or leave them but do have an interesting time looking around when we go out.  Some days are good and we come home with some "bargains and treasures" and other days not so much.  One thing's for sure, we do meet some interesting people along the way.

Today not only did we grab a few things on the cheap side we also had an interesting discussion with one lady selling her wares in her very crowded garage.&...

So it looks like the abstinence-only crowd was right after all. 

An experimental abstinence-only program can delay teens from having sex according to a new scientific study done over the course of the last two years.  This is the first rigorous research done showing success with an abstinence only approach.  This study helped sixth and seventh graders list the pros and cons to early sexual behavior among other assignments attached to the program. 

Th...
