I haven’t been writing much lately. My mother always said, if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all. With the world circumstances swirling in my head, the best I could do was hold on tight and try to deny the pain in my gut. Who wants to hear anything more about that? … Continue reading And Now, the Good News!
As the storm of coronavirus rages around me, I am continually looking to Jesus to show me how to respond. A couple of days ago, I went to Matthew 7:24-25 (NKJV) which says, “Therefore, whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on … Continue reading Don’t Just Stand There! Come Out of the Rain!
I think of myself as a change expert. Resilient. "Resilient" is a term defined as able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult situations. Multiple times over the years, I have found myself starting over with no idea of where I would live or how I would support myself. It’s always worked out. Besides hard … Continue reading How to Keep Your Balance When the World Turns Upside Down
Sometimes we learn a good lesson from a silly pastime. My silly pastime is a phone app, Solibon Solitaire. To make it sillier, I only play Klondike Deal 1. That’s one-card draw Solitaire, folks. Not too challenging, right? Well, it took me a while to figure out that if you keep trying, you cannot lose … Continue reading Never, Never, Never Give Up!
Still working on my mini-makeover program in preparation for my haircut appointment. No final decision as to style. Other goals include losing the comfort-food bloat, adding toning and stretching to my walking routine, and upping my skincare game. Look good. Feel better. I am no exception to the rule that most of our activities and … Continue reading How to Start or Stop a Habit
It’s all about my hair. It’s really bugging me these days. When I was younger, my stylists would say, “It’s fine, but there’s so much of it!” Not so much, anymore. Now it’s fine and thin. Most of my life I wore a chin length bob with bangs. I have a picture of me in … Continue reading World Change Begins with a New Haircut
It seems wrong to go on with this blog as if nothing has changed in the world, when there has been a radical shift in the very axis of the earth. Since March of this year, nothing has been as it was. The protests against racial injustice around the country have coincided with a desire … Continue reading Open Eyes. Open Hearts.
Beauty has taken a backseat during the pandemic. Working from home, wrangling toddlers, homeschooling reluctant students and dealing with increasingly alarming news has taken the phrase, “messy bun and getting’ things done,” to a new level of reality. Now may be the time to put a little snap back into your step with some personal … Continue reading Wash Your Face, Darlin’!
How often do you get to press pause on the warp speed of life, re-evaluate, and possibly hit the reset button? This has been the gift of the pandemic for many of us. It hasn’t come without a cost, of course. The losses have been great. Many have lost loved ones as result of the … Continue reading Where Do You Go From Here?
The entire world is focused on the coronavirus. The death count, the economic toll, mental and emotional damage, the forever changes in the fabric of society, and more. Nothing seems constant and everything we thought we could count on is turned on its ear. But think about this, have you noticed that the sun still … Continue reading Morning Always Comes
